Here is one its a auto shotgun it would hold 12 rounds with and a extend mag with 14 rounds it would be a 9 gauge shotgun with a 2 round per second fire rate its mag is a drum its dps would be about 10 damage per slug its ads spead would be about .5 seconds reload speed would be 2 seconds if placed correctly it can shoot of limbs plus it would make a hole in walls about as big as your torso for easy placement of the slugs can put a picture it is mostly the same as a shotgun but has a stick out handle

Personally I think the amount of infantry weapons we have to this day in Starbase is good and I dont have any ideas for any new ones but I think yours could really have a niche (just look how many infantry weapons there already are. Link: https://wiki.starbasegame.com/index.php/Weapons)
For mounted weaponry I already have a thread where people can talk about that (Link: https://forum.starbasegame.com/thre...aponry-would-you-like-to-see.1262/#post-10843 ) but I will add my ideas here: I would like to see 2 kinds of mounted weaponry: 1. A rotary cannon/gatling gun like the GAU-8 Avenger. Since you brought up the discussion: I would think that this kind of gun would work well with either AP (Armour Piercing) or HE (High Explosive [explodes on contact with surface]). 2. Idea would be some sort of a cannon like found on battleships or even tank cannons where you could go with all sorts of different ammunition (If you have played games like WarThunder you know what kind of variety exists).
PS: Both weapons would have to be place on a large weapon mount, since having 2 gatling guns with the power to kill thousands of infantry men is kind of dumb and overpowered

GAU-8 is a bit big, and would serve the same purpose as twin AC (same caliber ~30mm). So doesn't really bring anything new, except visuals.

But smaller caliber (rotary or not) ship mounted HMG would be very useful for anti-infantry combat, as well as against completely unarmoured fighters.

I like the ideas but a few notes and like ads speed rounds per second and reload speed i know its a forum and you dont have to put this stuff but its i feel that little details that make a difference but dont make it one sided like it fires a whole mag in 2 seconds make it fair thanks

Do 2 autocannons have a combined fire rate (both weapons perfectly timed together) of 2100 min rmp up to 4200 max rpm with a standard rpm of 3900? If so do not mind what I said. If not: I wanna have my BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTTT
