I have got an idea recently. It may sound foolish and I have decided to put it here:
Since VIP is supposed to be the weakest person, would it be better if there is a change of his equipment?
Currently, a VIP has a pistol, tear gas and pepper spray. When the server is full (presumably 8 vs , sometimes SWAT gain advantage in maps where both sides inevitable encounter in narrow areas, such as Reb Library, Northside Vending etc. because VIP often runs in the first place, spraying bullets on suspects and sometimes suspects (usually inexperienced players) would accidentally shoot him, ending the round prematurely with SWAT winning without much effort.
In short, there should be a balance in VIP gear - while giving him some power of self-protection, he should not be able to shoot bullets in a relatively high speed.
Below are some of the possibilities, food for thought:
- Pepper Gun + Taser + Spray = Despite without the ability to kill, it is more than enough for him to defend himself (But take away his gas)
- Colt Python + Gas = Now he is able to kill, and very likely to kill with 1 single shot. Therefore, we take away his Spray as an offset.
- Taser only, but he is with all other gears - Gas + Bang + Sting + Spray + Wedge. Self-explanatory enough, weak weapon but strong gear.
I apologize for my crazy idea but I am hoping there would be some new fun.
