Shot Cannon!
« on: August 23, 2012, 03:14:51 PM »

A cool weapon idea I came up with that may or may not be original.

A large, ballistic weapon That fires a random, narrow spray off 6 or 7 projectiles. Medium range but only effective at close range because of the inaccurate nature of the weapon.

So tell my what you think, its certainly something I would like to see!

Like a shotgun?  It's possible, I'm your weapons expert. :)

Or if you just want it to be like a needler, it's possible as well.

anyways, it's always nice to see new weapons, I wouldn't mind.

Shotguns are cheesy.

You shut your goddamn *** mouth. Shotguns are a blessing, just like babies, computer games and beautiful women. Space shotguns are even more of a blessing, like kittens, free games and slutty yet beautiful women.

P.S. While it's entirely natural to be offended by "shut your goddamn *** mouth", it's not meant as a particular offence. I say it a lot.

Not entirely sure if you were making a joke because Upgradecap has a post count higher than Alex's, but just in case, Upgradecap is not Alex. Alex's account name is Alex. That's why we call him Alex.

When someone says "glad you like the idea, Alex..." it looks like they're talking to Alex, because that's how written English works. Re-reading it, if he wanted it to mean what I now think he intended, he should have used a period instead of a comma.

Yeah but not everyone has English as a first language.

On topic: A shotgun would be awesome! Would have a decent range, but the "pellets" would spread more over range, so close range would be optimal. Im pretty sure both kinetic and HE could be used with this.
