    IGP - InstaGibParry - A shield as alt-fire

    Thinking of different ways to extend instagib.

    What really annoys me in close combat is missing a shot and being extremely vulnerable to the next attack.

    What if the alt-fire was a shield that has its own cooldown timer that is a lower than the primary fire. (EDIT2: SUPERSEDED - the same duration as the primary fire.)

    Shield shot could be used as equivalent to impact hammer or rocket jump

    You cannot hold the shield down, it is a single shot.

    Thoughts?

    Edit2: As per Barktooth's suggestion, reduce shield cooldown timer

        Not a bad idea, though I'd say the re-fire rate on the shield should be slower than primary re-fire. That way you can't block literally every shot your enemy fires.

          Yeah, I had thought of that, but was thinking along the lines of having crazy mexican standoff like situations (but with firing and blocking)....

          This would be fun for the players, but get boring for the audience, aka original UFC, before they increased the tempo.

          So your suggestion is what I would see as being ideal for the game.
