Wire Snippers -- to help cut down wires of all variety and use them in different areas

The idea of Padlock Cutters? i guess would be questionable since it seems you can lock your supply boxes i also feel these should be rare for those bandits, but i was thinking more of an area would be chain locked and youd wanna get thru the fence or even the chained padlocked door?

'Bolt Cutters', I had mentioned in the Steam discussions, and also to use a oxy/acetylene torch to cut through locks also.

It's a pretty cool idea, especially if you could also cut holes into chain-link fences for an easy entrance. Also, I moved this to the items category. Please remember to put your threads in the proper category guys!

Would be nice to use them to take fences away for your own use.

i s

aw someone mention it on one of the threads on locks
i also mention lockpicks but im sure they became a thing before i mentioned it I'm sure but it should involve a window that allowed you to actually unlock it or at least give lockpicking a chance to fail and break the material so its no so simple.

This just came to me yesterday, and one thing I've always wished to have in a survival game was the possibility of being able to find some sort of wire cutter that your player could use on chain link fences on certain areas in order to pass through. Thoughts on this?

What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country.
Yea, don't think I've seen this mentioned before... cool idea, maybe they could be used for other things too... there could be a bike locked up, shutting off the power to a building maybe?... probably some other stuff as-well...

This thread may be the same but mentioned a little differently:
http://community.survivethenights.net/threads/padlock-cutters-wire-snippers.1004/#post-9729

I do like the idea of Bolt cutters but wire cutters (used to strip and cut different gauge electrical wire) would not be good for the bike chain and cutting large 400 amp gauge wire for houses.

For wire cutters or tin snips (metal cutting shears) thought it could be a necessary tool to work on anything electrical which will add to the hardness of repairing anything that requires wiring such as circuitry. +1

Yeah. Maybe wire Cutters were the wrong thing to say but I think you understood where I was going with it. But I agree many different things you could use with them!

well i dont know if you've ever used big wire cutters before, but its worth smacking someone over the head with em, they are really heavy, also what role would it play? weapon, tool, or both?
