Global Rules

  • Any decisions made by any member of staff or moderator are final and not subject to discussion. Doing so may result in a ban from the site. The owners of Tripwire Interactive Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well as to remove access to the forums for any individuals with or without warning for breaches of the rules.

  • The use of hyperbole, one liners, and images as part of a forum debate is likely to get you infracted. You have many ways to participate and be a constructive part of this community, even when you disagree.

  • There has been too much in the way of abhorrent personal behaviors in the past. These will cease. It doesn't matter who started it or who reacted to it - it will all result in moderator action. If you have to indulge your hatreds, for whatever reason, go do it elsewhere - and do not try and drag our forum-goers over to enjoy your hatreds.

Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.

So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.

A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.

Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

Tier 5 weapons for each perk?

  • Tier 5 weapons for each perk?

    The M99 AMR so far is the first base Tier 5 weapon we have currently in the game, and perhaps later down the line each perk could receive a Tier 5 weapon their own? Each perk could have a very powerful yet low ammo weapon, and while I have no ideas for most perks I do have an idea for a Tier 5 Firebug weapon.

    I call it the 'Solar Eruption'. It'll have an very low ammo, having a total of just 10 shots in total. But, why? Well. This thing is going to obliterate anything that it hits, though Fleshpounds and Scrakes can withstand a blast from this thing on higher difficulties on multiplayer servers. But anwyay, this thing will blast out a large, very bright and very hot ball, like a small Sun. This firey ball will float forwards slowly and then freeze in place, causing crazy fire damage to anything nearby and then erupt into a deadly firey blast causing any Zeds nearby to explode as if they were hit by a Microwave Gun, and if anything is to survive the blast they'll be knocked down.

    Like the idea? Or does it suck? It probably sucks. Oh well. -_(○c_○)_-

    Killing 3000!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don't trust the atoms, they made up everything.

      LOL that was hilarious. The armored Gunslinger was like, "NOPE!"

      On topic: I like the idea of devastating weapons for each perk. But maybe instead of just having low ammo as they're downfall maybe have another limitation, depending on the weapon, such as really heavy weight so that u can only carry that tier 5 weapon and a pistol. Then maybe we can finally get our big belt fed Minigun or M60 for the commando. I like your Solar Eruption weapon too.

        Sounds awesome lol. I like it.


        • #5
          Forget what I said, we need Killing 3000 in the game ASAP.

            Here's a list of tier 5 weapon suggestions:

            Demo: M32. 6 rapid shots of explosive fury sounds perfect for the demo, like the seeker6 with a bigger splash radius and slightly more damage.

            SWAT: Riotshield + G18 with extended mags and a laser sight. Perfect mix of offense and defense. Your regular weapon bash would bash with the shield instead.

            Commando: Microgun (small handheld minigun, self explanatory)

            Bezerker: Plasma Sword (lightsaber clone). Easily cuts through armored zeds and fodder alike.

            Gunslinger: Dual G18s with laser sights.

            Firebug: Tesla Gun. Burns and electrocutes zeds with streams of plasma-like electricity

            Survivalist: A weapon that deals all damage types at the same time. No idea how this would work.

            Support: Shrapnel cannon. A huge cannon that Fires a giant wall of 100+ projectiles.

            Medic: Med Grenade launcher. Fires grenades similar to the hand thrown healing grenades.

              My turn for tier 5 weapon suggestions:

              Demo: Portable Mk 19 Automatic Belt Fed 40mm Grenade Launcher. ( Takes up all your weight )

              SWAT: Riotshield + HK MP7 SMG with ammo drum and a laser sight. Melee button would bash with the shield and blocking would let you look through the shield opening, this is where the laser sight would come in handy. ( Takes up all your weight )

              Commando: M60 Machinegun ( Takes up all your weight )

              Bezerker: Massive Double Handed Plasma Battle Axe. Kills everything easily. ( Takes up all your weight and slows you down )

              Gunslinger: Dual Sawed Off Double Barrels with heavy damage and really quick reloads. ( Has less max ammo compared to other GS guns )

              Firebug: Solar Eruption ( Low Ammo Capacity )

              Survivalist: Killing 3000 ( Will get you killed easily )

              Support: Shrapnel cannon. A huge cannon that Fires a giant wall of 100+ projectiles. - THIS FOR SURE ( Takes up all your weight )

              Medic: Med Grenade launcher. Fires grenades similar to the hand thrown healing grenades but when they explode they produce a huge cloud of healing smoke and they fire off hundreds of Hemogoblin drills in all directions. ( Low Ammo Capacity )
