Fist headshot kills should burst heads



  • I’d like to suggest that fist headshot kills should be able to smash in skulls like blunt weapon headshots do.

    Reasons:

    Game Mechanic: Even though fists have their own damage type, I don’t see why a fist punch should be treated differently compared to blunt damage in this regard.

    Atmosphere: Chivalry is supposed to capture the feeling of Hollywood-esque medieval combat. What could be more Hollywood-like than smashing someone’s skull with your bare (okay, gloved) hands?

    Equality: Even the smallest of daggers, like the hunting knife, can cut off a knight’s head even though hes wearing a chainmail coif.
    A spear stab and even a swing with its shaft can smash a head in this game.
    A pebble launched from a slingshot can do this as well.
    So why should a powerful strike from a steel glove not be able to do this?

    Style: It would look incredibly hilarious and make bare fisted combat even more fun.

    PS: Even though this will never happen, I’m all in for flat-handed karate chop that can decapitate an opponent on kill (suggestion: ALT + Stab or ALT + Overhead).



  • 100% agree. This would be amazing to Mortal Kombat kill people with exploding headshot uppercuts!



  • I disagree.
    I already don’t like it in some case where it makes no sense.

    Took his head off with a slingshot :?



  • I LOVE exploding heads from sling headshot!!! Holy crap it’s my favorite by far!



  • Aye mi’lord time to smash some heads in! :fight:



  • So… you want to be able to punch like Robocop or Johnny Cage??

    Sure why not? :P



  • Why not? :D



  • I just found out you can burst a corpse’s head with your bare fists (easiest with fist-stab). So why not on living folks as well?

    HAHAHA BEST IDEA EVER.



  • YES



  • My mission in life is to make this a reality, don’t worry.



  • Maybe we should consider testicle kicks?



  • @Oy:

    Maybe we should consider testicle kicks?

    Do you seriously think somebody runs around in 60 pounds of armor but doesn’t wear a cup codpiece … ?

    Do you really think that’s relevant considering that we’re discussing adding fallout 3 style power-fists that can explode heads through punching? Also, lol at the big round dick armor in your picture. You couldn’t wear that suit of armor and be intimidating.



  • Don’t take my remark too seriously. ;)

    But I am certainly not in favor of groin kicks. I don’t see why they should be added to the game…? As for the head explosions, I already named my arguments in the initial post.

    Also, I would be intimidated by that armor fur sure. That guy is basically wiedling an extra mace… and could teabag the heck out of me. :?



  • Wouldn’t be that cool, or realistic at all, last I checked decaping/exploding heads is already a common thing. you would have to be god damn super man to be that strong to make a head explode like that.

    I disagree.

    I disagree.

    Just for understanding, would you like

    the smallest of daggers, like the hunting knife, can cut off a knight’s head even though hes wearing a chainmail coif.
    A spear stab and even a swing with its shaft can smash a head in this game.
    A pebble launched from a slingshot can do this as well.

    to be removed as well? If yes, that is a fair opinion. If no, I do not see how you can differentiate and be fine with these but not with fist headshots? I do certainly not want this because of realism. I want this for style, hilarity and equal treatment.

    Also, this feature is already in the game, but only on corpses so far. Which makes even less sense.

    I am stronger than Superman. Superman is my bitch.



  • Sure, why not? The only real complaint against it is that it’s unrealistic. A lot of things in this game are unrealistic. This would be hilarious. I think it would also be awesome to have it for the javelin shield punch attack (although to be honest it could be there and I probably wouldn’t know. It’s nigh impossible to aim that thing at a head since it doesn’t reach the middle of your screen)

    You got the spirit. Thank you Sir!
