Weapons are unlimited in number,
and have a power setting of 3,
unless otherwise noted
Each worm has a dedicated row
(F8 and `Util usable by all)

Arsenal was designed so that (within reason) each row has 1 primary (inf ammo) and 1 secondary (x1 ammo) to spend.

Power is default (***) unless specified otherwise

Any worm may use

~     1x Jetpack / 1x Low grav / 1x Fast walk / 1x Laser Sight
F8   2x Rope * / Bungee / Parachute / 2x Teleport

Dedicated rows

F1    Bazooka / 1x Homing Missile
F2    Grenade / 1x Axe ***** (75%)
F3    Shotgun / 1x Bow *****
F4    Firepunch / Dragonball / 1x Kamikaze / 1x Prod
F5    Mine / Mole Bomb *****
F6    Air Strike * / 1x Napalm Strike *
F7    Blowtorch ***** / Drill ***** / 1x Girder(pack?)
F9    Flamethrower **
F10  Petrol Bomb / 1x Skunk
F11  Old Woman *
F12  Select Worm / 1x Freeze

Rules

  • Each worm is only allowed to use weapons from the weapon panel row it is named after + anything from the F8 row + any utility
    • Skip Go is also allowed to be used by any worm.
    • If you accidentally end up using a weapon your worm is not allowed to use, say "sorry", and consider skipping go the next turn if your opponent is still not satisfied.
  • Duplicate names are allowed. Maximum of 2 worms per Fkey across team.
    • F1 F1 F2 F2 is valid, F1 F1 F1 F2 is not
    • Tip: when editing your team, append a space after the name to bypass built-in dupe check.
  • Multiple Rounds and Banning
    • When playing Bo3 or Bo5, the loser of each round may ban an Fkey. Winner swaps out offending worm(s), if any, with a different valid key; neither can switch roster beyond that. Bans last the rest of match.
    • e.g. Winner's team (F1 F2 F3 F4 F9 F9), Loser bans 'F9'. Winner swaps for (F1 F2 F3 F3 F4 F10)
    • Banning is completely optional.

History

Created by Goom April 2019, with much help from Auto, GreeN, KRD, Schaf, Deadcode, and others.
Objective was making hybridization of Walk for Weapons's concept, Team17's positioning, and Hysteria's row simplicity.

Similar ideas

The idea of the worms being specialized in determined weapons/F-keys already existed as a WWP Wormpot called "Specialist Worm mode", as a PX scheme released in 2011 by WoSC community (posted by DumbBongChow) called "Specialists", as a 2016 scheme released by STRGRN called "Specialists" too and as a scheme released on 2nd April 2019 by Kradie called "Lucky Strike". In 2020 KRD released Alt-F4.

  • Finish formatting
  • More detail about naming/bans
  • Add description, strategy (F12/random turn order synergy)
  • Add relationship to Alt-F4
