New Weapon?
Maybe something like Unreal's Flak Cannon?

That’s not a bad idea at all. Maybe something like a flak or shrapnel cannon would work.

Honestly, I'm leaning towards something that adds a new style to the game. Specifically some sort of flamethrower-styled weapon. I want to avoid powercreep and making weapons too similar, so a standard shotgun and flamethrower in the CQC slots feels fitting to me.

EDIT: An alt-fire mode could just expel superheated pellets akin to a shrapnel cannon, so possibly both.

YES!!! Good idea!

New Weapon will be awesome! :D
I bet Pandut will create something epic.

P.S. Quick Weapon Teaser:

Purely epic, and retrospective indeed! But needs more dark brown and greenish color, if you know what i mean. ;)

This game had a lot more content than I was expecting! What exactly is the theme of all these monsters, sort of Quake but not really? I've seen gameplay videos but never played the game myself so I don't really know what it's about.

Can't wait for detachable limbs to be added. This is shaping up to be better than the actual game with all the bells and whistles being added (Not to mention that getting the actual game to run is torture).

It's about aliens that invade different time periods or something. And once there they assume time-appropriate forms, which is why there's a mishmash of futuristic marines, medieval jesters and barbarians, and other bizarre stuff.

Zrift one looks flat... But oh well, GZDoom's limitation has own intentions, i guess!

No Limitations :), Zrift Intermission Map is the exact replica of Chasm version,in terms of dimensions and textures, with some extra details added.
I just need to adjust the camera angle and add more model assets, and probably more map details.

Panzerchasm is your Friend https://github.com/Panzerschrek/Chasm-Reverse/releases you just need CSM.BIN from the Original game.

Pretty impressive for a mod still early on in development, and it's great to see Chasm isn't entirely forgotten either.
After playing it on the scythe2 wad, I decided to mess around with a few things.

Hey. This is awesome. Never played the original game but it seems to be really cool. 8-)

The only thing I don't understand is the pistol that shoots gibs. Lol. What's up with that? :lol:
