    Ionizer
    The Ionizer is another click weapon however it doesn't do any dps. Whenever it fires, the Ionizer converts the cube it shoots into another cube 1 tier down. However, it only has a 25% chance of converting it (Can be upgraded in Weapon Aug). For example if it shoots a yellow block, it converts it into a white block. If it shoots a white block, it converts it into a red block. If it shoots a red block it converts it into a rainbow block. Finally, if it shoots a rainbow block the block converts into a time cube block containing 1 time cube (Can be upgraded in the weapon cubes screen).

    Special Cubes
    When it shoots cubes like "Weapon Cubes" or "Time Cubes" , the cubes become Ionized and give 5% of what they usually would. The 5% can be upgraded in the weapon cubes screen all the way to 100% (Double). If you shoot and Ionized cube there is no effect. This also has a 25% chance of happening (Can be upgraded)

    Details
    The Ionizer will shoot every time the Pistol shoots, slightly before it (To prevent accidentally destroying a non-ionized time cube). When in idle mode, the Ionizer will move separately from the pistol. You will be able to upgrade its speed and block targeting skills. At max block targeting, it will go straight for the Time Cube and then the Weapon Cube (If there is one). Obviously a weapon such as this wont come cheep, I'm thinking around 100 weapon cubes or so.

    Weapon Switches
    Weapon switches are a way to switch out your left hand and right hand gun. If you saw my previous suggestion you might think how are we gonna have 3 guns? Well, here is the answer, obviously you wont be able to triple wield weapons. That is why I thought of "Weapon Switches". In the weapon cubes screen, you will be able to see your currently selected weapons and your non selected weapons. You will be able to switch weapons with an easy drag and drop style. However, it costs some time cubes in order to switch. In order to switch weapons, you will use 5% of the time cubes you would usually gain when ascending. So if you switch mid run, continue to a high level, and then time warp with 100,000 time cubes, you would only get 95,000. You might think this is unfair, but by using weapon cubes, you can purchase an upgrade on the weapon cubes screen in order to decrease this by 1% all the way to 0%. (5 Upgrades)

    Final List of Additions
    • Ionizer Weapon
    • Ionizer Idle Speed (Weapon Aug)
    • Ionized Special Cube Bonus (Weapon Aug)
    • Time Cube converted from Rainbow Cube bonus (Weapon Aug)
    • Weapon Switches
    • Decrease penalty for Weapon Switches (Weapon Aug)
    • Chance of conversion (Weapon Aug)

    I liked this idea but if you do not have the click pistol on your lay, does the ioniser actually shoot?

    Yes it does its individual, same with rocket launcher. Don't think of it as every pistol shot, think of it as every click. With rocket its not every 10 pistol shots, its every 10 clicks.

    No because first of all the Ionizer is much more expensive to get. Its upgrades are much more expensive and it doesn't do as much damage. In fact it doesn't even kill blocks. Even if you click a yellow block 4 times it still wouldn't be dead, you would have the Rainbow-Converted time cube. A pistol might be able to insta kill 1 yellow block, especially with abilities.

    We were actually thinking you would triple wield the Click Cannon.

    Ionizer is an interesting idea. It could be an upgrade for the pistol though. So an augment for the pistol with a 1% chance to ionize the block being shot at. Then that chance could upgrade to a max of maybe 25%.

    Thanks for the comments, really that's just giving a major damage upgrade tho if you add it to the pistol. Making the pistol more OP than usual. If its separate you use it as more of an assistant for your team and as a tool for maximizing your time cubes and weapon cubes.

    I like the idea! You could also make the ionizer a passive effect applying over time like the new autoshots, or, which i like more, apply the chance to every spawning enemy/cube.
    It would be interesting to have a very low chance of a "memorizing ionization", that would be remembered even after warping similar to the permanent converting artifacts, only on a punctual wave. But that´s lategame-stuff, pretty sure! :D
