Discus of Daedalus - final

Ammo: See Weapon

The Discus of Daedalus (commonly abbreviated to the Disc or known as the Discus)  is a ranged projectile weapon available in 1200.

The Discus of Daedalus when fired, will fly in the direction the player was aiming at. If an enemy is within proximity of the Discus as it is flying outward, then the Disc will home in on the enemy, and if successfully hit, will change its path to return to the player. 

If a player is very close to a surface or enemy they will not throw the disk, but will perform a melee strike without throwing the disk. This makes a rapid attack at point blank, due to the fast animation, and without having to wait for the Discus to fly out and back.

The Discus will return to the player if it hits a surface, it hits an enemy, or it flies a set distance.

The Discus when thrown will travel slower underwater, but upon hitting an enemy or surface will return to the player at normal speed as if in air.

Pre Alpha Edit



The Discus of Daedalus in the pre-alpha has a much different model of the one we got in the final, being entirely unrecognizable from the final's Discus of Daedalus. The overall appearance of the Discus of Daedalus pre-alpha's model is a yellow and black gun-like disk holder, and also a much different disc, which is made out a odd blue stone, with the sides being yellow, which the disk holder holds, and also, the weapon’s model also has different animations.

Strangely, is that the discus's projectile fired by the player has a much different texture and model than one on the Discus of Daedalus's pre-alpha model - it is a stone texture with the side of a Greek warrior, rather than the blue-yellow discus on the Discus of Daedalus pre-alpha model. When the Discus is fired, it fires its blue and yellow disk, soon it will change into that stone model. The blades that are on the Discus‘ final model don't appear on either older model, not even on the Discus in the pre-alpha has blades on the disc. Other than these differences though, the Discus of Daedalus functions the same in the final.

It’s also worth noting that second Discus texture actually has a model, in early screenshots of the game. The much earlier model appears to be pretty closer to Discus of Daedalus’ final model than it was as a disk holder in the Pre-Alpha.

It is possible that stone first person model was actually the first model, and not the the disk holder model used in the pre-alpha instead of the model used in the screenshots but left the stone model when firing the actual discus, and not the discus present on the pre-alpha’s model.
