I'm just confused as to why this is all such a big secret. I mean, the game is finished right? Just waiting for a green light from Sony or whoever to put it out into the market? So pretty much any ideas/feedback people have at this point are in vain? Unless for patches or future DLC. Correct me if I'm wrong but the way it works is that they present the finished game to the company, they look it over and ok it, and it goes right out for sale? No more tweaks are allowed and if the devs change their minds on something the process starts all over?


I'd assume they be submitting a final build. Any tweaks or polish would be left to a Day 1 patch.

And yea, I think pretty much all feedback at this point is in vain. Things have been fairly quiet despite a couple of PAX panels. The reveals have been largerly focused on visual asthetics as opposed to gameplay. We're in limbo currently, or "developmental hell."

The thing tough is that some peoples like me have already talked about the possibility to choose more than 1 weapon long before the beta even came out,so the mods and devs must have seen our feedback since then.

I have been concerned about this for a while. Honestly the big thing I took away from the trailer was "damn it, the weapons still look exclusive"

Instead of feeling excited I feel even more concerned.

See, I think that development hell is a little harsh for the time being. We already know they're going through cert, and new info could come in a matter of days. I'd wait another month or so until I'd start calling it development hell.

My best guess would be that each Jason come with a sets of weapons wich are specific type but with different design specificaly made for a specific Jason.

 

Exemple 1: all Jason can wield an axe,but each Jason have a different looking axe,part 3 has a woodcutter axe,part 8 a fireaxe and part 9 a double-sided axe and part 2+6+7 might also get an axe with each a different design.

 

Exemple 2: all Jason can wield a long range weapon,part 6 has the graveyard fence pole,part 2 might get the tribal spear,part 3 will have the pitchfork and part 7+8+9 might also get something similar,maybe part 9 can impale people with a shovel.

 

Exemple 3: all Jason can use a machete,but each of them might get a slight makeover,like one as a black handle,another would have a brown/wooden handle.

 

 

Anyway,if there was indeed just 1 weapon per Jason,we all know that peoples will be disapointed if that happen.

If the Jasons are all limited to one weapon I would have it:

 

Part 2: pickaxe

 

Part 3: pitchfork

 

Part 6: spear

 

Part 7: machete

 

Part 8: axe

 

Part 9: dagger

I really want the harpoon gun more than anything. Have it be like a one time use ranged weapon like the Shotgun. It could impale counselors and stun them for a brief period as they attempt to dislodge the bolt. Unless it's like a headshot or something, which I imagine would be incredibly hard.

I would have it as:

 

Part 2: Pickaxe

 

Part 3: Axe

 

Part 6: Spear

 

Part 7: Sling Blade

 

Part 8: Fire Axe

 

Part 9: Machete

 

I'll be fine with it as it is right now, but I really want to switch weapons as Jason.

I get where you're coming from but I think developmental hell can be applied to anything that's been delayed. It's only harsh if you take it that way.

From what they said at PAX, maybe some of these one-off weapons may appear in the single player missions.

I'll be honest, the multiple axes is disappointing if they can't at some point be swapped out.

I don't care if that's the default weapon and you can unlock weapon swap at level # whatever, that's fine.

But any time I choose part 8, even a year from now, I still only get red fire axe? disappointing.

If you were weapon locked, variety would have been better. Jason has used so many different weapons that it seems silly that we basically come down to: Mining pick, machete, axe and spear.

Just threw together a quick list of kills, ignoring part V, Remake and FvJ and non-Jason kills in JGTH: For simplicity, any action performed with bare hands (neck breaking, backbreaker) were listed together, unless a weapon was used as well. Additionally, any thrown damage (onto car, through door, onto spike) were all lumped together.

Machete - ||||||||||||||||||||
Pickaxe - (odd that this is a weapon when he never actually killed anyone with it)
Fireaxe - |
Pitchfork - ||
Wooden Axe - |||
Kitchen Knife - |||||
Hunting Knife - ||
Knitting Needle - |
Speargun shot or stabbed - |||
Harpoon - |
Guitar - |
Sauna Rock - |
Mirror shard - |
Broken bottle - |
Spear - |||||
Cleaver - ||
Bare Hands/head crush - |||||||||||||
Syringe - |
Party horn - |
Sleeping bag / tree - |
Liquid Nitrogen freeze/headbash - |
Sickle - |
Tent Spike - ||

Sucked into space - |
Strangulation - |
Crane hook - |

Hammer - |
Unknown/offscreen - ||||
blunt object - |||
Electrocution - |||
Fire Poker - |
Hacksaw - |
Scalpel - |
Throwing Knife - |
Thrown/Dropped from height - |||||||

Point being, there are very few axe kills so its very odd that the axe is so common. I would prefer cleaver, hunting knife or even bare hands to replace the multiple axes.

Or another good thing would be to have multiple skins of the various weapons.

You could have a regular straight machete, one with jagged teeth and curved blade and the uber machete.
Kitchen or hunting knife.
Fireaxe or wooden axe.
Spear with metal tip, or garden fence pole.
Sickle or bonesaw
Pitchfork or spade

 

Edit: Sorry about the double-post, got carried away making the list.

Excellent A+ post, and I would urge the development team to read it...very constructive.

 

The core of social media followers probably don't realise every Jason will come with a specific weapon only, only us "hardcore's" know every detail there is that has been revealed. I'm sure if/when they realise the Jason weapon limitations - it will be another gripe/call along the lines of "we want single player","when's the release date?" - if I was the development team I'd be looking into integrating it into the game in the near future, (nip it in the bud so to speak) before the moans on Twitter/Facebook from the masses begin. I genuinely can't think of any other thing they would gripe about. An excellent job has been done, no doubt...but people will be disappointed with this for sure. Kitchen knife loving Michael Myers would get away with it...super-creative Jason Voorhees...not so. Jason is the slasher equivalent of "The A-Team" when it comes to improvising. :)

 

More work, but in the broad spectrum of things - it'll make the game better no doubt - more replayable - more word of mouth sales - thus more units and DLC sold.

Although it would make each Jason more unique to have his own weapon, many of us would prefer to freedom to customize, unless Gun media has a good reason.

 

The only sort of good reason I can think of is when you level up on XP you can unlock more of the same weapon type for that Jason. Example:

 

Part 7 Jason starts out with a rusty machete that has a wood handle. First unlocked weapon is a less rusty machete with a plastic handle. Next is a stainless steel blade machete. Next is a machete with a metal handle and serrated blade.

This is the sort of thing I would be happy with. Start with weapon base weapon, then at level 10, you get another skin for that weapon. Level 25 you can unlock weapon swapping, Max Level: More skins for weapons.

I think for the most part they were on point with the weapon selections. 7 was where his machete became his signature weapon. The pickaxe and axe were used in the climax of 2 and 3 respectively as well as the fence post from 6 being used in two gruesome kills. Most the rest of Jason's weapons have been the closest convenient things for one off kills. They had to choose something for them
