[ZS] Alternative sentrygun (Ceiling Turret)



  • Was just screwing around in Gmod with ceiling turrets when I came up with this idea: The ability to purchase a ceiling sentry in addition to a regular one. (Separate items. Do not come bundled.) Basically the ceiling turret would have the perks of having a much nicer radius of aim but only able to be placed on the ceiling. If you’ve ever tried putting sentries on the ceiling, you know why this might be helpful. Sentries are pretty much abysmal for anything but floor placements. Could possibly have a health debuff as the ceiling turret is visibly more fragile than the sentry and is destructible in HL2 which implies it’s weaker as well.

    Just an idea.

  • Why do you want an object put into the game that fills a role that doesn’t exist?

    Turrets are already pretty bad at shooting things outside a cade without help, and even with help some turrets can’t shoot out of cades. This turret just sounds like it’s going to be placed on the ceiling in a nearly unreachable spot so it can plink zombies until it’s out of ammo because of it’s turbo radius.

    There’s not really a need for it, tl;dr.



  • You could suggest giving the turret 2 modes, 1 for horizontal scanning and one for vertical scanning.



  • just make it change models depending on the position



  • Elite level suggestion: Make ejected casings from the turrets set fire to cades.
