function float SuggestAttackStyle()
{
return -0.2;
}

function float SuggestDefenseStyle()
{
return -0.2;
}


I seen this in my altered fatgun and wondered what it is.

Bot AI.
Tha bot asks what the weaponn thinks is the best way of using it, and the weapon suggests by returning a number...
I dunno what it means, but I bet you can look it up in the bot class or weaponclass or something.
(It could mean like 0.0=melee,1.0=longrange o something but I don't say it does...

The UT_Eightball class explains some AI stuff pretty well. Basically, the functions return a number telling the bots how aggressive they should be (approach/back off) when using the weapon.

It acts as a "modulation" to a bot's combat style. Bots attacking check suggestattackstyle() and defending, well you get the picture... :)

higher numbers mean bots charge more, lower ones mean bots retreat/stay at distance...
