There is a lot of tactical, preppers, apocalyptic and weird gamers that like Gas Masks, although there is no gas threat in STATE OF DECAY 2 other than bloaters and bloater gas.... and some other nasty gas related weapons. The gas mask fits the setting, already being a common item in zombie games like DayZ, Resident evil (Hunk & others) and survival games as Metro and Stalker.
Add cosmetic gas mask and gas masks with helmets.
COSMETIC OR PRACTICAL?
As other clothing, I believe this would be easier done if it is purely cosmetic. So two "justifications" as why this gas masks would not work is either
- Filter is expired, so it is useless.
- Sadly Bloater gas is acidic, so the filter is more of a decoration now. (At least you wont smell the dead)
POSSIBLE CHALLENGES AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
A possible challenge is "how to show the mask with the characters hair" solution, skip that and design the gas mask with skimasks like in the picture below. This will simplify the progress by working the same as other masks in game and just "hiding" the characters hair.
British S10 gas mask
LEFT, RIGHT OR CENTER?
The position of the filter is important as a Gas Mask with the filter on the Right side will cause the filter to get in the way of a rifle when aiming. So a filter on the Left or in the center is the way to go. On the Left is the most common one as on the M40 or the S10 gas mask. A filter on the center of the Gas Mask as in a Soviet GP5 or a PMK gas mask will also be useful as it does not interfere in the aiming of a Rifle
Russian GP5 Gas mask
Yes please. Gas mask generally come in Black or White, so Gas Masks in this two colours will be just PERFECT. But int he case of Gas Masks with Helmets, the should be combinations with the helmets already in game with this new gas mask as a new ITEM.
