A guy in the comments on Armor Games let the idea of a Gas Station, and I would like to share it here.

 

I mean, cars, boxes, weapons and, of course, FUEL. =D

It's been done and shot to death because it'd be exploited to hell

^what this guy said. There's absolutely no reason to give us a fuel heavy area, when we have a daily fuel cap that's easily reached in 10-20 missions.

Nope to this.

 

Lets list some the reasons why;

 

Fuel is the premium currency of the game

Fuel can be looted free of charge

Once you hit Level 10 or so, you can build a fuel generator, getting fuel free of charge

The story describes how the city was bombed, areas full of flammable liquid would burn easily

It's been over a year since the start of the story line, how many of these would still have fuel?

What weapons would you find at a petrol station? Not a gun. If using a mobile phone isn't allowed due to the tiny risk of it starting a fire, what would gunshot do?

It's just a "I want more free stuff" idea

 

I've seen too many threads asking for this in both the current and old forums. After seeing as many as I have, I might come across a bit more rude than intended. If I have, then sorry for any offence caused

 

EDIT;

 

Here are just some of the threads there have been asking for gas stations where replies were invariably a lot more harsh than mine;

Shotguns and handguns are common defensive tools used by cashiers at gas stations. Believe it or not, non-incendiary rounds rarely light flammable substances, and the weapons are used primarily inside the building, where the fuel is not present.

However, I'm still against this idea.

-snip-

Lets say the Fuel Station is looted completely (almost, i mean this is a looting location), the bombs were not directed at EVERY DAMN fuel station, maybe even say the bombing was centered around UC, but not the outskirts, since we're expanding there, and Fuel there doesn't have to be 100% Loot EVERY TIME, the petrol station will be like a park, food, fuel (Lucky), and water, almost all petrol stations contain those, lets even add in car parts, hell. And btw, Petrol Station owners have a friggin shotty under the counter so think twice about robbing them.

Odds are, and intentions at its best, its probably NOT a "Free Shit" idea, look more towards the people who are saying : FREE SECURITY KEYCARDS PLOX.
