    Throughout looking at the screenshots & videos you can learn alot on the flak-cannon, its new modell is twice the 2k4 one's size, it shots 9 red glowing shards which appear to be more powerful and bouncy in a tighter patteren, the nade is launched farter then in every other UT as if it was launched via catapult and sendes shards upwards, yet one thing which I have lately discovered puzzels me, in some screenshots you can see something that appears to be a laser pointer when in other screenshots it is covered, I've seen both these positions in both early an recent screenshots now what the #### is this?!, maybe it is triggered by firing the gun, but still WTF is this ?!

    Are you sure your not confusing it with the Canister Gun? They might even be using the Canister Gun as a place holder for the Flak Cannon. so I wouldn't worry about the lasser .

    i havent noticed it.

    and i hope to god they dont include the flak cannon in the canistor gun

    and besides....who cares if there's a laser pointer or not? at worst it'll give away your position and what weapon you have

    It's UNreal, ok? :)

    Quake3's shotgun has a laser pointer as well (yes, it also caused a few confused comments when the first Quake3 screens came out) :D

    The red dot you're talking about is a crosshair, not a laser pointer.:rolleyes:

    ..and full stops.

    The full-stop is a wonderful punctuation tool which serves the dual purpose of making your text easier to read, as well as helping to prevent your writing from appearing to be a train of thought that is garbled messily onto the screen via the keyboard.

    Refer to the bottom right of your keyboard, on the row above the space bar, two keys to the right of the "M" you will find the full stop.
    You don't even need to use the shift key to use it, just hit that key and a lovely . will appear.
    Go on, give it a try.
    You never know, you might get to like them.

    On French keyboards you have to press shift to type a period.

    I think French flak cannons have laser sights too.

    Vector, my sig is actually vector style unlike yours, which means it would actually fit your name better. Kind of ironic, lol.

    lol, flak with laser. Maybe someone was holding the canister gun and aiming at the Flak cannon weilder which made it look like the beam was projected from the flak cannon and not the cannister gun. The other possibility is that the flak cannon model is currently a place holder for the canister gun. Either way, epic won't put a scope or a laser on the flak cannon because its shot spreads and therefore the laser would be rendered useless.

    I wouldnt be worried about weapon models, cos from the latest previews it sounds like they are putting many intricate details into the models and animations so that they not only look very cool but also visually convey the status/mode of the weapon. Judging by screenshots we seen so far it seems like some of their art is inconsistant (e.g raptor sign in the hellbender screenshot) or borrowed and modified from UC2.
