Re: Guns are only weapon you need in modern RPG setting?
It's not how fast a weapon kills you, it's how fast it stops you.
I've treated many kinds of wounds, and guys who get shot tend to be incapacitated even if they survive. Guys who get stabbed keep right on functioning until they bleed out.
For making a guy fall down and leave you alone, you can't beat a bullet.
So, guns are the best choice. But you do want a viable backup, which won't jam or run out of ammo. So a good knife is a good idea.
And if you are playing a horror type game, there may well be a reason to carry a big melee weapon. A machete might dismember a zombie where emptying a clip of 9mm into him might not do all that much.
Out of wine comes truth, out of truth the vision clears, and with vision soon appears a grand design. From the grand design we can understand the world. And when you understand the world, you need a lot more wine.
