In BIG2KREW's latest quick tips Eric said that they are open to suggestions for new 3rd buddy boosters. On top of adding all the skin variants (i.e. Suited Drake) I'd like people to submit their ideas for new 3rd booster skins in this thread so it's easy for ND to see. I'll start us off.

New Buddy Boosters

 

With more buddy combinations it would be great to have more buddy boosters for them.

 

Streak Buddy- Get 3 medals when you buddy gets a streak (5 kills in a row). TheStuntDouble

Brawl Buddy- Get a medal for every melee kill you buddy gets, or 2 medals for every 3 melee kills. TheStuntDouble

Quiet Buddy- You make 50% less noise 15ft from your buddy.I-Like-Pie45

Boom Buddy-  Teamsafe between you and your buddy.I-Like-Pie45

Bandoleer Buddy-Gives you a clip of ammo for every commando your buddy gets and a 'nade for frag 'ems. Dekumanus

Ammo Buddy- Gives you a clip of ammo and a 'nade for every hi-5 with your buddy. jjjkur

Taunt buddy- Get a medal for every person your buddy taunts.TeabagMcFrag

Headshot Buddy- Every time your buddy gets a headshot kill you get the assist. gunnsandwiches42

Call Out Buddy- Every enemy your buddy shoots at you see.crimsonine

Power Buddy- Every time your buddy gets a power killer medal you see all PWs for a short time.TheStuntDouble

Retribution Buddy- When you kill the enemy that last killed your buddy you get a medal.xSKIN_N_BONESx

Speedy Buddy- Your 15% faster when your 15ft or less from your buddy.brandon207_

Bandage Buddy- You heal 50% faster 15ft or less from your buddy.

Whoa, Buddy- You get a full kickback for every Hail Mary your buddy earns. TheStuntDouble

Other Section

 

 

 

 

Pistol Mods

 

All pistols currently have four or less mods to equip with, three or less of which may be equipped on character guns. Because of this only three possible combinations of mods on treasure guns are possible. Currently only two combinations remain unused. If you want to make more 3rd booster combinations than two without overlapping them you need to have  a new mod for pistols.

 

  • Max ammo- Could be located at the holster or on the belt by your grenades instead of being on the gun itself.  
  • Call out- Just like it's long gun counterpart.
  • Blindfire accuracy & clip size- New for the tau sniper.

 

 

 

 

 An idea if ND can't/won't make new guns from Huskers1598

 

"I don't think ND is going to make any more character guns, so I would suggest making base weapons give a third booster for characters that don't have guns. Or if a character has only one gun, then that and a base gun as the second. This might seem too easy but it's the best solution IMO, and you would be limited to only one mod per gun. I do agree that jade guns should give the secret booster to custom characters as an exception."

 

 

 

 

Different buddy boosters for variants by brandon207_

 

"Now one of the first ideas that were said was about 3rd boosters not working on characters DLC variants in fact any variants of them at all. So here’s an idea, why don't we allow these skins to receive their 3rd boosters but let’s not stop there. Each different variant could give you another buddy booster. For example If you equipped Drakes weapons with his Nepal skin he would receive a buddy booster that is not explosive buddy but a different one like for my buddy, I think this would work really well and would allow players to choose their 3rd booster with a that certain skin. They wouldn't be forced to use that skin if they wanted that certain 3rd booster anymore."

 

 

 

 

 Having to use a specific character for 3rd boosters. xSKIN_N_BONESx

 

" The current set up causes a few bad things.

  • What Third Booster you get depends on whether you're heroes or villains.
  • Some are only possible for heroes and some are only possible for villains.
  • You're forced to sacrifice appearance for performance, just like the current stat hats that don't have a toggle.
  • It encourages people to play as the same few main characters.

Letting any character on any team use a third booster as long as they have the two weapons that are part of the pair is fairer, and doesn't discourage using other skins."

 

 

 

 

Note: If anyone could come up with some patterns or designs for character's guns who don't have any it would be greatly appreciated.

Yes. I want Flynn to have a Para 9, but a Para 9 M9 combo is pretty strong, so they may not do it. But sugar buddy is great for Flynn. Cutters explosive buddy could be a reference to his Co Op Adventure. Nice job!

Those ideas are really good, thank you.  I personally would like a brand new 3rd booster however, something like a passive max ammo booster that works like the mod (but not as effective).

Maybe a booster for getting a clip of ammo when you high five over someone you killed together?

The problem is that there is way too many Para 9s, all the combinations are used up.

 

Thanks, for the support.

By the way, unless if ND adds new mods/only choses 2 skins for the 3rd booster, there will be repeats in character weapon mods.

 

Eddy Raja- Eddy's AK (Callout, Clip Size and Scope Zoom) and Eddy's Arm Micro (Reload Speed & Blindfire Accuracy). Grants Booty Buddy.

 

Lazrevic- this is a special case, because Lazzy already has two long guns. What I chose was to have 1 pistol that will grant a different booster depending on the long gun used. 

 

Pistol- Lazarevic's Tau (Reload Speed & Callout). When used with Lazarevic's Kal, it gives For My Buddy. With his FAL-SS, it grants Sugar Buddy.

Woah, woah, woah, no, heores already have a loadout that gives you Explosive Buddy, and Villains already have a one that gives you Sugar Buddy. If you swapped Cutter's and Flynn's boosters around it'd be better. Heroes already have a huge advantage since their third boosters are so much better. You can't get more kills with Sugar or Booty Buddy, but Explosive Buddy, Thanks Buddy and For My Buddy actually help you get kills. Talbot's Stealth Buddy is the only good one, and that requires a good buddy.

Cutter gets a Raffica? Why not give him a special PM - 9MM skin instead as he used the gun in Syria in the SP. It should function exactly the same as the Para 9.

 

About ideas:

 

Salim should get a AK with Reload Speed and Call out. His pistol should be a Para 9 with Reload Speed and Blindfire Accuracy. His third booster should be Thanks Buddy.

 

Atoq Navarro should get a Raffica with Blindfire and Clip Size. His 3rd booster should be Booty Buddy.

 

Gabriel Roman should get a Tau with Clip Size and Reload Speed. His 3rd booster should be Thanks Buddy.
