so my idea is pretty simple. i’ll say it again, but
THIS SUGGESTION WOULD NOT EFFECT GAMEPLAY AT ALL.
in halo there are many weapons. my idea is that you would be able to choose the SKIN for the weapons that you pick up.
for example, any time you see an AR on the ground, its the AR that you designed via either a gun editor that lets you draw on the guns with patterns, colors, etc., or simply one that gives you different skins, much like COD has ‘camo’ for their guns. there could also be multiple ‘versions’ of the weapons, all sounding and looking a bit different, but functioning EXACTLY the same.
another idea i had would be to add a silencer on the guns. this silencer WOULD NOT SILENCE THE WEAPON, but when you fired the silenced weapon it would have the silencer sound (FOR YOU ONLY). this would NOT EFFECT GAMEPLAY AT ALL, it would be for AESTHETIC VALUE, and (sound) value only.
since player customization, and customization in general is so widely accepted, i think this would be a phenomenal idea to help let players play with cool looking, and cool sounding weapons instead of the bland generic ones.
