dark souls 2 should probably have some guns

Even though it would technically make sense for guns to exist with firebombs, binoculars, etc. Dark Souls is still supposed to have a medieval-ish theme and it would be ruined if people could just pull out an AK47 and start shooting everyone. In my opinion, at least.

a medievalish theme where everyone ninja flips like a circus clown

Oh and a gunblade!

R1 is a sword swing, R2 is a gunshot.

R2 during an R1 will do extra damage.

If there is a gun, it must be a really extreme version of the crossbow. It should fire one bullet at a time, each shot must be followed by a long-ass mandatory reload on the spot.


As opposed to non-stop dark beads?

I think it would be pretty kickass to have a duel wield elemental gun character. Sure there would have to be some sort of nerf to guns like low damage(like the guns in FFx2) I mentioned this before but everyone called me a CoD fanboy

I think this would be good. Just like crossbows it's would have to be reloaded after being fired and at low levels take longer to reload until you put points in the right spot. The first guns had a harder time penetrating plate armor. I would imagine eng varying but give it a chance to critical.

It would be pretty cool to have a Musket, or a flintlock.

Maybe like a musket with a bayonet at the end. You hold it like a spear and the R2 is the shot, needs to be reloaded after you fire. You would still be able to move, but you'd move very slowly while reloading, running is disabled

If there were gun, Astora invented them.

Gun's would actually be pretty normal at this point.

In Dark Souls they already had the know how to create Binoculars, bombs, access to Black Powder.

With Dark Souls II taking place long after the first its entirely possible that guns would have evolved to the point of Flint Locks or even a Pyro based firearm.


Holy. You actually make sense.


Not really, flint lock pistols were centuries after gun powder. Also, applying real world logic doesn't work entirely, gunpowder was brought to Europe by China via the Silk Road. So it is hard to say what the the fantasy logic for this western world possessing gunpowder might be. You would also have to weigh in the fact that these are dead kingdoms that were long destroyed, thus their technology came to halt. Magic/pyormancy existing would also possibly delay the need for personal firearms.
