Helmets, Caps, Hats & Masks!
Below are some suggestions and concepts I have for in-game headwear! I thought it would be really interesting and would add another layer to the game if each hat has a possibility of 1-3 traits also varying in % gain on the individual trait itself. This would not only greatly increase the range of character builds but would also add a determination to get perfect gear and massively increase the value on items with said traits.
Please comment below any thoughts, suggestions or tweaks that you think would improve the idea individually or as a whole. I’m aware that some of my suggestions contradicts current mechanics but what’s a suggestion without complicated code right? 😁
Lumberjack Hat - Increased log gain, faster cutting speed or increased chance for rarer materials
Miners Helmet - Increased ore gain, faster mining speed or increased chance to gain rarer materials
Farmers Hat - Increased crop gain, increased seed gain or increased chance to gain rarer materials
Fisherman’s Hat - Increased fish gain, increased catch speed or increased chance to gain rarer fish
Propeller Hat - Increased movement speed, increase ADS movment speed or glide X distance from raised platforms
Swimming Cap - Increased swim speed, decreased stamina use while swimming or (Tread Water) allowing you to use weapons while swimming
Knights Helmet - Increased Defence against melee, bullets or turrets
Warriors Helmet - Increased melee damage, melee speed or critical chance with melee
Soldier Beret - Increased reload speed, decreased bullet spread or increased rate of fire
Sniper Hat - Increased reload speed, increased bullet damage or increased rate of fire
Medic Helm/Hat or Priest Hat - Increased HP gain from consumables, passively gain health or passively restore close party members health
Chef Hat - Chance to gain extra food while cooking, chance to not use resources in recipe or chance for better quality food
Builders Hat - Reduced crafting cost for furniture type items or items built have % more health
Lucky Hat - Increased chance for more loot, chance for rarer loot or chance to dodge a bullet
Spy Hat - Activate skill to briefly reveal the names of players in proximity (Large Cooldown)
Masks should be mostly cosmetic but maybe could hide your name if someone is using the ‘Spy Hat’ skill?
