what? Gimli doesnt throw weapons, he gets thrown!

DERPA [Red Permanent Assurance] August 22 2010 2:48 PM EDT

Winner! +2 naked

AdminShade August 22 2010 4:19 PM EDT

Hmm, let me rephrase.

Considering the weapons of CB, which one would Gimli use in ranged combat?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 August 22 2010 4:29 PM EDT

Crossbow.

[RX3]Cotillion August 22 2010 5:18 PM EDT

Probably the AxBow as it would make Gimli's enemies as slow and cumbersome as himself.

IPoop August 22 2010 7:52 PM EDT

He'd use an Elven Longbow .. attached to legolas haha

nah i agree with the others, i think it would have to be a crossbow of somekind .. cant see those stumpy arms twirling a sling enmass (pebbles and rocks as weapons maybe though) or twanging away on a bow with any great effect .. but him cranking back some honking great thick crossbow seems more likly to me

Who is Gimli?

Fuhgawz August 22 2010 8:09 PM EDT

the dwarf from lord of the rings

Underage Drinking [Battle Royale] August 22 2010 8:10 PM EDT

definetly a Sling if Death

Zenai August 22 2010 8:52 PM EDT

Throwing Iron(Similar to a horse shoe), Throwing Axe(double sided), Throwing Hammer(Small Spiked Head and pommel), Thrombas(Ironwood Boomerang type weapon but much larger), and finally a Bolas(1 & 2 Ball Type)

Zenai August 22 2010 8:58 PM EDT

From CB Weapons definately the ExBow.

Here's a relative or him: http://www.carnageblender.com/inspect_opponent.tcl?opponent_id=84636


I had to do it.....lol

QBOddBird August 22 2010 8:59 PM EDT

I'd vote for the Heavy Crossbow, though its base damage does not reflect its power (in comparison to other weapons.) Too bad it doesn't fire every other round at a greater base damage than the ELBow. That's how a good, crank-back heavy crossbow oughta be!

Zenai August 22 2010 9:21 PM EDT

OB: I agree but I would change the name to: A Dwarven Crossbow [8x1](+1)
