    I'm too lazy to read back but I swear you said the Bio was a n00b gun and that it takes no skill to use.

    I think the pic is from Boris Vallejo. Not sure, but it looks about right.

    Just because you can dodge over it when it's sitting on the ground in plain view not moving at all doesn't mean it can't be overpowered (which it is)

    If it is overpowered why do nearly all players choose the the shock, lg, minigun, rl, flak..... etc before using the bio.
    Does that make all of the guns overpowered?

    Seems pretty obvious to me. A fully-charged goo gun does an incredible amount of damage, but it's so difficult to hit with on any kind of consistent basis and also has a significant amount of randomness in terms of how the goo splooshes (yes, I invented a word for you :p) that most people either just:

    a) load it up and then spam it hoping for a totally lucky kill (SEE: TAM), which is also the reason a lot of people say it's n00b (massive damage + spam + luck = n00b gets an undeserved kill), or

    b) use it out of desperation because they have nothing else better (SEE: TDM/DM when the other player/team has the map locked down).

    That clear it up?

    Not that hard to hit. Aim to hit them dead on rather than with splash, it has a bit of a knockback in primary fire making followup shots good and the alt fire is great for a quick kill, or limiting the 'safe' area you can move around in.
    As to a n00b getting an 'undeserved' kill.
    What bull****, the 'killed' player should have avoided the bio, rather than bitching about it like half of the people in this thread....

    When someone loads up bio, you basically can't act aggressively towards them, movement-wise. The only thing that works good against bio is hitscan.

    Bio doesn't take a lot of skill to use, like so many pub players think. It takes a whole lot less prediction than rockets to use effectively. The only drawback is the rof. Bad players don't like the rof, but that's the reason why the number one use of it is over or around corners while running backwards, or making easy annoying pickup shots. The biorifle doesn't take an incredible amount of skill to use, compared to hitscan. You don't need a lot of mouse dexterity or movement skills to use the bio effectively, you just have to realize it's applications, weaknesses and strengths and play with it accordingly.

    It's by no means a weapon players can outlet a lot of skill into effectively, because it's applications are so limited, and the only hardcore, non-defensive frags are because of ping, packetloss, lack of awareness, or plain stupidity on the recieving side.
