Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
To be fair, the 'awful' bit is the positive awful. Like, say, awfully powerful. I may have given it away. (that was the hint, btw)

So no, not the Gattler.

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
I...I may have misled you somewhere on the previous page. You're on the right track, but not quite there yet (Nerdo's questions).

You can't exactly use it yet. It's seen once, though.

That was me saying 'Not the Archer' the long way.

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Alright, let's see :
- It's player allowed
- It's really good
- It's a primary weapon
- It's apparently a BP-Federation weapon
- It uses ammo
This narrows it down to only 5 weapons, if I'm not mistaken.

- Per your last post, it hasn't been used by the player yet
This only leaves the two bomber primaries.

- It has only been seen once
We've seen a number of Durga bombers, so the Redeemer has seen plenty of action.
On the other hand, we've seen the Vajradhara once, during "Icarus", and although its main weapon isn't used during the cutscene, it is - as far as I know, its only appearance in BP so far.

So ---> is it the Vajra ?

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Isn't it fired at the Hecate in Tenebra's final cinematic? I only realized my mistake after remembering you can only use it in 'Kentauroi race'.

So that's a yes. I adore that weapon. Grats.

Hmm, could be, I've only watched the new cutscene twice so far so I don't know :D
