View Full Version : Weapon Oddities - Misc Tips? Discussion.

Anyone found any unusual tips regarding the weapons? Or just any general insights?

Tonight I had a full shield belt and I got hit with a razor (not sure if it was the primary or alternate fire version) and I lost my entire shield belt in an instant? Is there something to this, or did I get hit in the head which does so much damage that it totally obliterated the shield belt?

Also, anyone have any use for the Biorifle? This thing seems to have no tactic involved with it. Any insights?

Thanks, please let me know if you have any good weapon tricks.

Yeah you probably got hit in the head. The razor is one of the few weapons that cause head damage.
The BioRifle is a great defensive weapon. If you play any team games, try mining the area with sludge and only the other team (and you) can take damage(by default). Also, if you're retreating, line the walls and floor with sludge as you back-pedal through the corridors. It seems MUCH more powerful this time around.

If I'm not mistaken, headshot with razorjack in Unreal inflicted 105 * 1.5 = 152 damage points. So if this hasn't changed in UT (as I suppose) you can lose your shield belt in just 1 razor head shot!

the airhammer thingy seems to propel you up if you build up pressure and let loose at your feet. Like a poor mans rocket jump,give it a try,works great in deathmatch.
