    There's no shortage of item ideas out there, but this one doesn't sound too complex or anything.

    10 or 15 tiny, slow Torpedoes that do an appropriately small amount of damage each, fired at the same rate as Gatling Gun. It would probably have a high cooldown.

    The Torpedoes would be slow enough that a skilled player could dodge most of the battery, but splashy enough to seriously hurt someone against a wall.

    How does that sound?

    It will just lead to torp spamming, spamming, the thing that ruins this game even more than devs.

    The only thing worse than torp spam is mine spam

    You lost me at same rate as a Gatling gun. That hast to be one of the most comically underpowered weapons in the game and to add to that all of the problems torps have I'm sorry but I just don't get it.

    The dev team previously played with the idea of a "Gatling Mortar" that was scrapped for being a combination of, IIRC "too powerful" and "not fun to play against" - and to be honest, I can't see a rapid-fire torpedo swarm being any better.

    No problem, as long as each torp deals 10 dmg each

    Fair enough. Gatling Missiles would be interesting though…
