I agree with that. The Lighting gun is highly used, by me anyway and it proves its worth every time.

But a new gun would be exciting, especially if it requires a new strategy and creates a good change in the game play, ya know some thing different, I mean weve all used a sniper rifle in games before, which is why I wasnt too impressed when I found out it was in UT2004 but, naturally, it has its moments.

If I were to replace a gun Id say replace the Sniper Rifle instead of the Lighting Gun, no messin.

Lets keep it Unreal people....

It`s a great service to see were the sniper exactly is! So you can give him the final kiss with the shock rifle.

yes. but a nicer design that makes it look more powerful would be cool.
and a SLIGHTLY increased fire-rate would be pretty nice too.

I would like a particle cannon (think FEAR) with a small zoom, say 2-3x.
main feature would be to be able to shoot through numerous people if they line up. Slow rate of fire. or maybe a slight charge up time.

Thinner trail? that would look gay... like less volts, or something. I'd prefer the 2k3 trail myslef, the one with arc. That was really cool.

Nightmare:
i agree about keeping both, but im not sure if thats what epic is thinking. i think they want only one

the reason i think lightning is better is because of the slower rate of fire, it forces players to really be careful about and line up their shots instead of (almost) "spamming" sniper bullets. In the end players are rewarded by inflicting 10 more damage upon their oponent (compared to SR). snipers are supposed to be all about precision, right?

savatage:
the one with teh sexy gen mokai with shooting a sexy combo with a sexy spiral around the shock beam still visible with sexy double damage turning everything a very sexy purple
the other 2/3 are teh sexy gen mokai w/ LtG and then RL

I think it would be cool to keep the LG. It is a high skill high rewards weapon, that can be quite fun in close combate. I also agree with the more Unreal feel and sexy look.

The color of the gun and the targeting screen are the only two things they would need to fix IMO.

I love black, and with the blue accents it would look sweet, and the lines in the scope kind of hurt my eyes after a while.

But over all I agree LG 4tw. :up:

LtG is the freaking best weapon I've ever used well besides the asmd. Keep both and flush the damn sniper down the toilet.

Really? What was epic thinking? The LtG was about the coolest thing about UT03 and now they're getting rid of it? In favor of a bland, camping-inspiring, boring, lead-spammers sniper rifle?

I dont see the logic of that. and with the introduction of the futuristic UC weapon designs it gets even wierder, LtG fits better there.

I dont see the fuss, if you want ut99 sniper, make LtG with ut99 sniper properties, its not that difficult.

If you wanna make the game less defensive... remove the shield gun, remove the ueber armour and give me a sniper gun with a trail.

Yes, keeps.
(+ the LtG has got to be one of the more original sniper rifles)

I like the lightning gun more just because It leaves a trial. It stops people camping to the same extent. And it loks really powerfull, I would like see a larger arch just for visual show.
