Clownside 2


When I play this game I want to be part of a scifi-themed, military shooter where everybody and everything looks bad ass and mean machine. Not a cartoon circus full of clowns with spike helmets and ugly death masks, dressed up in carnaval colored suits that hurt the eyes. Not sure what the devs are thinking but imo they went way overboard with these cosmetics, to a level that fighting inbetween an increasing army of all these pierrots is distracting from game play.

Games like Blacklight Retribution already have shown us that there are endless ways to customize (and monetize!) individual load-outs while still looking bad ass and staying within the original design principles.

So, to give the devs a better insight in what they are achieving with these arcade cosmetics, let's post a screenshot of the most ridiculous looking outfits you've come across. I'll start off:



Imagine what it will look when they will add empire specific run animations to these "professional warriors". I think that might be just enough to put Team Fortress 2 out of business, lol.

I'm sad that this post didn't start with the giraffe camo.

I agree, I am actually quite sick of seeing these recycled helmets while slapping on some crappy "hard hat" or spikes. It looks really cheap and crappy...that's pretty much a given for a large majority. Honestly, I really thought these guys were going to make a serious push on the cosmetics by adding more "tacticool" armor and helmets like the aforementioned Blacklight Retribution.

On the running animations: Completely unnecessary.

Too obvious maybe but I'll post one when I find a ridiculous looking giraffe camo outfit.

Is it too early for the mandatory... "Bring out the gimp" comment?

Gotta agree though, some of these outifts are not good. To think, they spend SC on them too. lol

I have to agree some of the gear just looks like clown school.

And Im not an extreme purist either - I like the TR tiger stripes, I think the illuminated helmets look fine - I dont even mind giraffe.

But there is plenty to roll your eyes about.
Vanu and NC zebra camo of outrageous.
Helmet spikes?
Skulls skulls skulls.
And the NC and Vanu urban camo is looks like it fell out of an 80s night club.

Yeah it looks like roadwarrior. We definitely need some mean looking sci fi military gear in the cash shop.

No matter what camo I apply, I'm swaddled in purple and teal highlights. Consider this.

Yeaaaa, I really hope the devs stop with all those stupid helmets before this game turns from a good shooter into an ironic hat simulator like TF2 did.

The solution is to kill people with stupid hats.

Also, the wicked giraffe spirits must be exorcised with superior firepower.

EXORCISED!

As for me, the only cosmetic stuff I got is forest camo, desert camo, and white camo. When they release a new continent I'll probably get camo for that too.

That screenshot is really bad..

Also I bet Higby didn't expect that to become an animated gif.

I like the goofy helmets and camos, so long as they don't waste too many resources on them I don't see why its an issue, unless you are trying to force your ideals on aesthetics?
Have a goofy Zebra camo as requested.
