For AC4 they need a new weapon wheel. I mean while I was playing Redemption I wanted all 3 powers , my bow , my 4 pistols, and my rope dart on my dpad but you cant. And the weapon wheel is so slow to pop up and annoying. I have some ideas to make it better. They should replace the LB L2 and RB R2 with a scrolling menu that while you are playing that doesnt pause the game. Heres a picture of what im trying to say. This is really bad and made in paint very fast with a laptop mouse so bare with me. http://gyazo.com/1da97ac0c4a21776ae26f6cc2a349453

You get the idea. It would be smaller and have every weapon name and a icon of that weapon that would pop up when you press LB and RB that will disappear after a while and it wouldnt pause the game. The D pad can still be used. Anybody else got any ideas?

I want quick-access like in God Of War and Arkham City. Combine one of the left triggers with a facebutton (or something similar). All gadgets/powers should just be a button-tap away for fast and easy access. That's the proper way to do this imo :).

Just return the old weapon wheel from Brotherhood.

That could work with the new PS4's controller touchpad. Just one swipe, and it moves to the next slot. Not a bad idea OP.

Make one like RDR.

I liked ACR's weapon wheel a lot. It loaded quickly and allowed you to immediately change both weapons. My wife hates it though. It makes ACR unplayable for her.

the brotherhood wheel was the best so far

I feel the first idea, RDR style or using the D-Pad to its fullest (8 directions, 8 weapons) would work pretty well. Honestly, it's always bothered me that we're limited to 4 weapon choices with the D-Pad. There's diagonals for a reason, c'mon.

This. Make it so you don't have to go to a separate screen

I actually quite like this idea. Has anyone played a game with this type of idea or did the OP come up with a original idea?

Am I the only one that hated it? I'd scroll to smokebomb and it'd go to knives. Now, the games having way more equipment, it'd just be worse.

AC1-Revelations weapon wheels were the best.
They allowed time to plan out your tactics.
