    Here's an update on the proposed Click Launcher & Weapon Cubes based on the feedback we've received so far.

    [​IMG]

    Click Launcher

    - Can purchase from the Weapon Augments screen after collecting your first Weapon Cubes
    - Dual-wield with Click Pistol
    - Fires 1 rocket every 10 clicks of your Click Pistol
    - Idle Mode will aim where your Rocket Launcher teammate is targeting

    Weapon Cubes
    - Weapon Cubes will start appearing on Wave 1000
    - Guaranteed Weapon Cubes on Waves 1000, 2000, 3000
    - Chance of Weapon Cubes appearing on mini-boss or boss after Wave 1000
    - Weapon Cubes can be spent as soon as they're collected - no need to Time Warp first

    Weapon Augments
    - New Weapon Augments screen similar to Artifacts screen
    - Will not have a Redo button
    - Spend collected Weapon Cubes on the following Augments:

    Click Launcher Augments
    - Unlock Click Launcher
    - Additional Rockets (max of 5)
    - Reduce clicks required to fire rocket (base is 10, reduce to 5)

    Idle Augments

    - Increase Click Pistol idle targeting speed
    - Increase Click Launcher idle targeting speed

    Weapon Cube Augments
    - Increase Weapon Cube chance
    - Increase Weapon Cube drop amount

    Progress Augments
    - Starting Lvl for Click Pistol (e.g. start Click Pistol fully upgraded)
    - Starting Lvl for Pulse Pistol (e.g. start Pulse Pistol just before Advanced Promotion)
    - Starting Lvl for Flak Cannon
    - Starting Lvl for Spread Rifle
    - Starting Lvl for Rocket Launcher
    - Starting Lvl for Particle Ball​

    The Click Launcher, Weapon Cubes & Weapon Augments would all be included in the next update.

    What do you think?

    Is that the new gun will use the artifact "click"?

    The Click Launcher will fire based on your Click Pistol. When doing damage it will take into account any bonuses from the Click tree Artifacts.

    I'm really looking forward to this update, I think the rocket launcher and weapon cubes are a great idea. Here are a couple of thoughts I had.

    Something I would like is to be able to spend weapon cubes on the ability to increase the base fire rate of your weapons.
    Maybe something like +5% speed increase per level to a max of +100%.

    I feel like increasing the starting level of your weapons is unnecessary, since we can already get this through staring gold (though this would save a lot of clicking). What would be nice is if we could reduce weapon level costs with weapons cubes.

    We already have it from starting gold. Would be not fun to have it here.

    I would like weapon cubes to help endgame tasks.
    - go through 1-shot levels faster
    - boost my performance when I would fail otherwise.

    It's up to you to decide how you want us to achieve this goals. It may be usual boring +dps + attack speed, or it may be some fun game mechanic like you did with shooting cubes that are already targeted by weapons.

    This change would fit the hole that is happening after wave2000, my progress stopped once I've reached it. Additional power from weapon cubes is much needed!​

    You guys are right, this is why we really enjoy developing in the open like this. Helps to identify what is really valuable :)

    Dropping that aspect gives us more time to look at doing some of these other ideas:

    I love everything you've outlined. It's going to add a ton of depth to the game! I cannot wait!

    Question, will we also get bonus weapon cubes from ad views in the ios version ?

    Thank you!

    it would be possible to add an Progress augment : the gun shoots every minute.
    could decrease the time with weapons cube to achieve maximum shot every 5 or 10 seconds.

    this will make the 1000 level above a little simpler

    it's just an idea

    Yeah, it probably makes sense that above wave 2000 it starts giving Weapon Cubes instead of Time Cubes.

    We're actually trying this idea out just like you mention. Starts out at 1 click every minute. If you upgrade it, you get 2 clicks per minute. And we think that could go up to 100 clicks per minute.

    Hi Proton,

    With the one click per minute comment do you mean the click pistol in idle mode ? Thank you for clearing up my question about the weapon cubes.. thats awesome.,

    Oh and one more question, when this update happens will we all have to do a time warp? Im at level 1150 and Im trying to make it to 1350 for the achievement. Im just wondering thats all.

    Billy

    OMG this will be insane for high level players
    Does the weapon cube work like Time Cubes (Also giving +....% Damage or something?)
    Is there a max amount of obtainable Weapon Cubes?
    Pls answer these questions Kenzie
