I'm writing a large list of examples for the GW weapons.
Feel free to post your own that you've thought of and I will add them to the list.
Note you can always use two one handed weapons to count as a two handed weapon.
Fantastic idea. Possibly suitable for a Gamma World Wiki contribution?
I'll submit anchor (tethered by chain, or not) as a heavy 2-handed ranged weapon. LaCrosse stick is amazing.
Tailgate: Shield / Heavy 2-handed weapon
Vaccum: 2-hand wpn; Lt. / Hvy
Flat Panel Tv: Shield
Ironing Board: Shield / Heavy 2-handed weapon
Suitcase: Variable melee depending on size and contents.
Kitchen Sink (stainless steel): Shield / Heavy 2-handed weapon
Microphone w/chord: 2-hand Light (1-hand light w/out chord)
Tricycle: 1-hand / 2-hand Hvy
* Size and strength can alter the use of an item, thus my multiple categories.
Yup. The fun part is that almost anything can be a weapon and a shield, depending on how you hold it.
Shields can include
Garbage can lids
Stock pot lid
Another thing to keep in mind is dual wielding -- if someone wants to use a pair of katanas or something, just count it as a two-handed weapon. If they lose one of the weapons, it drops to the stats for a one-handed weapon.
This is also how you go John Woo with a pair of pistols.
For those who want to translate GUNS into GW stats.
LIGHT 1 HANDED GUN
Most handguns and revolvers.
9mm, .38 special, Glock
LIGHT 2 HANDED GUN
Assault Rifle (M-16)
Submachine Gun (Uzi)
Small/Light hunting rifle (.223)
Precision Sniper Rifle (H&K PSG1)
HEAVY 1 HANDED GUN
Heavy handgun or revolver
Any magnum, Colt .45, Desert Eagle
HEAVY 2 HANDED GUN
Heavy Assault Rifle (AK-47)
Light Belt-Fed Machinegun
Large Hunting Rifle (30-06, .303)
Powerful Sniper Rifle (Barret Model 82)
And I do like the rule that using paired weapons simply counts as a 2-handed weapon of the relevant type.
This weekend I'll try and post the list of make-shift weapons I had developed for my own conversion of D&D 4E to Gamma World before I learned that there was to be a 7th edition of GW. You might get a few good ideas for the list.
