Post Limit rail usage.
Is this an improvement to an already-existing feature, or a new feature entirely?
Improvement.

If an improvement, what original feature is it improving upon?
"Rail" weapons, specifically the Gauss rifle and laser rifles to some extent I think.

How would this work?
Further limitation of ammo on these weapons for balance purposes.

Can you give an example in how useful this feature would be?
In reality, magnetic weapons such as railguns require an immense amount of energy. In doom, of course this concept of realism is irrelevant and unimportant, however that's not my primary point.

These weapons are spammed horrendously on the public servers, and if I could guess, probably a favorite of acrobatic 3 mile snipers at night. Sometimes I can't manage to move across my own base without trying several times, because there is a gauss sniper somewhere far outside the main gate.

The sniper rifle works like it is supposed to, it fires slow and is accurate at range. The gauss rifle in its entirety pretty much seems to make the sniper rifle obsolete, sniper might as well be a free class, as is, it is definitely not worth $750, but that's another matter. I tried to play the test version tonight where keybinds and the zoom feature are removed, its impossible to play in certain circumstances. Where before I could make a futile attempt at firing back, now I can't even alert the team to where the sniper is, the railgun dispatches me before I can turn around and locate where its coming from sometimes, not sure how that's accomplished without zoom. It's just my opinion and I'm not completely sure what the AOW team intends with this gun, but being cheaper than the sniper rifle it only seems rational that its less effective.

So, I would propose reducing the amount of ammo on gauss and laser rifles to a small enough amount that the potential gauss sniper has to move often to locate ammo, possibly reducing the damage of the gauss rifle. A weapon like that has a large enough power requirement so it seems realistically feasible. Even with 5 ammo, it seems most people that use the gun will still get at least 2 kills out of that and probably waste a shot. The laser rifles aren't really meant to be a primary weapon or a fighting weapon at all, and the gauss rifle is insanely overpowered for anyone using a third party program.

It would also promote close range slugfests I think, which is more entertaining than getting magically sniped. I don't mean to rant on about cheaters, I've tried using the weapon like this and I don't understand how someone can consistently make these shots.

Okay, it was just my thoughts on it. Your right cheating should not be used to determine balance, I figured maybe it was relevant due to the amount of it going on.

Thanks for your thoughtful response though.

Yea sorry, a typo. I'm quasi-dyslexic.
