Name 3 Weapons that comes to your mind when you think of Survival Game in a Forest / Ruins setting in increasing order of their Danger. Magic weapons and Futuristic weapons are not allowed btw :)

I could think of.. let me see.. A Machette, A Pair of Boxer Gloves and a Shotgun in that order. Just want to know what everybody thinks of as a "Weak", "Ok-ish" and "Strong" Survival weapon.

You consider Boxing Gloves to be more dangerous than a Machete? :unsure:

I doubt you'll find many guns (or at least functional guns) in a wilderness survival setting. The best progression I can think of is Pocket Knife --> Machete / Makeshift Spear --> Maybe a rusty pistol with limited ammo that you find through an incredible stroke of luck. Other than that, I'm not sure what exactly to suggest here.

Blunt (bat/club/pipe) -> Sharp (knife/knife/rusty... Sharp thing) -> long and sharp (makeshift sword/spear/bow) -> ranged wpn -> gun/real sword/axe

Honestly, a sturdy and sharp stick that can be splintered into something sharp as a low grade weapon. Maybe chance of breaking but abundant and quick to make. Or not breakable but low damage with a safe range for easy one on one against melee attackers.

Then when you have some tools you could put sticks together to make simple weapons like crafting a sharp object or stone with a branch to make a sword for less range and higher damage

Then finish it off by making more modern weapons like guns a rare find with ammo being even rarer.

Just my opinion... maybe I was too stick themed but sticks should be abundant in a forest so that's what came to mind.

Working on a case. Get all the evidence to prosecute some bad guys. :kaojoy:
But, the game development schedule delayed. :kaoswt2:
The moral of the story: No good deed goes unpunished... I guess...
Now, hopefully, some certain people will not be stupid enough to leak my name on the reports.
just beat ff7 original for the first time since 2010. having played remake last year, I have a much better appreciation for the original oddly enough. I still like some of the character presentation in remake more, but the original's got a lot going for it.
Ever reach that moment in your life when your juggling a dozen or more projects that you know will never be made but don't have the heart to delete them? Ugh, I hate those moments...
:kaosigh: Why must you hurt me so?
my main character isn't the warrior of light or the chosen one, he's a self righteous, invasive try hard who gets ahead of himself and makes a critical error, resulting in a downward moral spiral that, eventually, leads him to truths that make him a better man, and im DAMN proud of that.
