Contents[edit source]

What exactly is this page intended for? It only has 3 weapons on it. I propose that there be pages for melee weapons, ranged weapons, firearms, and explosives. Then those pages can be linked to with ease. It may also ease clutter. If you like I can get started on it now.-- Minemodoverlord (talk) 01:15, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

IllegalOpcode has some plans for a few pages, including this one, that he wants to rework and link with his new infoboxes. --Mr Pie 5 (talk) 01:56, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Alright I just wanted to point that out and see what you guys had to say.-- Minemodoverlord (talk) 01:58, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Like Mr Pie 5 said, the plan is for this page to be sort of an overview of weapons to accompany the weapons category. The reason for this is that a category page shouldn't contain more than a few lines of text, otherwise it gets really hard to use it for navigation. But until I've finished converting the infoboxes getting these overview pages done isn't my highest priority. -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 09:20, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Well if you want me to do it I can fairly easily. Just tell me what you want done with them and I'll get started.-- Minemodoverlord (talk) 12:38, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

DPS?[edit source]

I don't know if it's possible, but it'd be really great to get a damage per second, as a refire rate of different weapons really can vary a lot, hugely affecting an actual damage these weapons can do. Eg. I'm curious if Crossbow is better for killing large dinosaurs than Compound Bow, or worse? SkywalkerPL (talk) 19:41, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
