    Shockwave? Skeet? Jack-o-Lantern? Portal? Shadow? Spider? Tangent-Fire? Pinpoint? Beacon? Kamikaze?

    There is way more and clearly the upgrades of these weapons are very poorly made considering some of them don't even differ aside from cosmetics. Okay, you don't want to spend so much time on cool weapons, but can you at least make them different @kChamp?

    Quantity < quality. If you want to make weapon unlocks for every single level, that's all good, but make them decent instead of having them flood my arsenal with a bunch of duplicate weapons that do the exact same thing. +10 higher damage or +0.01cm wider explosion diameter or two additional shots does not fix it.

    How many times have we asked for this or variations of this.

    These ideas right here I came up with on the top of my head to give each four tiers:
    Shockwave - How it is
    Sonic Pulse - Creates a larger bubble than Shockwave, also shoots out a Sweeper projectile
    Bubble Dome - The Shockwave does no damage, but reflects enemy projectiles
    Force Field - This combines Bubble Dome and Shockwave

    Discs - Shoots out a series of clay discs
    Skeet - How Skeet is
    Olympic Skeet - How it is in game, but you can at least at more projectiles
    Bird Hunt - There could be a really cool throwback version to reference Duck Hunt on the NES

    Pumpkin - How pumpkin is
    Jack-o-Vomit - Keep it how it is, it's somewhat creative
    Jack-o-Lantern - A version of Jack-o-Vomit, but it lasts longer and has flame projectiles
    Pumpkin Patch - Shoots a bunch of pumpkins out, followed by one last big, rotten one

    Friendly Cube - You can just make a companion cube projectile with cube physics
    Portal Gun - Keep it how it is
    ASHPD - Combines Portal Gun and Friendly Cube, it throws the companion cube into the ground
    Portal Placer - Shoots a shot that creates two actual usable portals in the air

    Shadow - Keep it how it is
    Lurker - An underground Shadow
    SideStriker - You can shoot this Shadow off one side of the map and it will appear on the other at the same trajectory
    Phantom - It is a Shadow that negates bumpers and portals

    Spider - Keep it how it is
    Daddy-Long Leg - Shoots out a Spider that extends in eight directions then drops bombs from each leg
    Tarantula - A larger version of Spider that extends and then drops more mini Spiders from each leg
    Black Widow - This works like Spider, but extends more and each end explodes in poison

    Tangent Fire - Keep it how Tangent Assault is
    Slope Fire - Fires from both sides of the projectile
    Limit Bomb - This works like tangent fire but each bullet drops down to the ground and glides along the ground for a little like tiny rollers
    Pythagorabomb - The trajectory is drawn, then turned into a triangle, making a shape similar to how Fat Stacks works, the triangle is filled and inside takes damage

    Pinpoint - Keep it how it is
    Needles - It is Pinpoint, but it digs into the ground slightly
    Pins and Needles - It is Pinpoint but there are three of them spaced out from one another, the middle column is a Needles
    Pincushion - This shoots a Pincushion flare that lands, Pins drop from the sky into it then it explodes with pins going everywhere.

    Beacon - Keep it how it is
    Light Column - Shoots a Beacon that shines a bright light that damages opponents, it shoots small god ray particles that bounce around the beacon
    Beaconator - It is a very wide Beacon
    Flame Vortex - Simlar to Light Column but it's filled with a spiral of flames that spray napalm all around

    Kamikaze - Keep it how it is
    Suicide Bomber - A larger Kamikaze that crashes into the ground and envelops the whole radius in fire, it also shoots more bullets
    Martyr - It is a slow moving Kamikaze that drops grenades as it falls
    Reinforcements - It is a very fast Kamikaze that drops down several very weak aerial strike weapons. Can result in air strike, helicopter, ac-130, artillery, cactus, or a cat

    This took me about 15 minutes to think up and write, if time was spent implementing these, we'd have a worthwhile wait for two weeks for an update. Not just "Pixel" - "Mega Pixel" - "Super Pixel" - "Ultra Pixel"

    some are kinda impossible to do for kyle,but others like double fire tangent shot and sweeper shock wave are really cool

    I wasn't really being serious with the post, I know none of them are gonna happen so i just kinda brainstormed all of them real quick.

    I did that just to show that it's not difficult to be imaginative with the game. There's just a lack of motivation.
