Would you want to see The Foot use firearms

And I'm not talking about assault rifles or shotguns but maybe pistols and sniper rifles, they can still use swords and martial arts but I don't think its too crazy for them to carry a sidearm with them. Thoughts

They've done this quite a bit, way back in Mirage. You see Foot shooting guns in Return to New York.

We saw them use firearms in City at War, we've seen firearms in the first PD movie and I'm pretty sure they've been depicted with firearms elsewhere. Pretty sure all of the cartoons depict someone in the Foot using laser guns.

So the Foot are no strangers to firearms.

As others have said, about half of the turtleverses feature armed Foot Soldiers, so, yeah, that's a thing.

I'm fine with it as long as it's not their primary means. I don't like the whole militarized Foot thing Bay & co. did, but bustin' during times of crisis, like in Mirage's City At War, is cool.

It's weird that in the later stuff (Tales V2, etc.) the Foot weren't doing that.

Ninja shouldn't be unfamiliar with firearms. In their heyday, guns was around as well as rocket launchers and grenades, Shinobi was using explosives and iirc there's even bomb recipes in some of the real scrolls.

Okay I already know there have been some adaptions where the Foot used firearms all I'm asking is that would you(the viewer) want to see them use firearms or are you against the idea

They should primarily be using firearms in any instance where subterfuge and sneaking around/being quiet is not called for.

I think it's a generally accepted idea considering how many iterations (source material included) have done it.

Just a personal preference. I wouldn't be a huge fan of the Turtles using guns either.

The Foot robots used laser rayguns several times in the 19871996 animated TV-series.

I guess the thing about The Foot is that as ninjas they shouldn't need guns as it defeats the purpose of the training.

Uh, no, it doesn't. Ninjas used virtually anything they had access to so long as it got the job done. Half the stuff they fight with are farming tools.

A modern day ninja clan would certainly also be trained to use firearms. Also stuff like rocket launchers, grenades, sniper rifles, etc.

They can use what they want to get rid of the turtles.
