    No, it doesn't. There is no NewNet_ShieldGun class in the UTComp source code. Quit spreading your lies. What screws up the shield gun is being online. :rolleyes:

    Yeah it's pathetic that the only melee weapon they have, they've screwed up with a huge bug.

    GG Epic coding. :)

    Huge bug? So it wasn't meant for a 200+ ping environment, what a surprise - the whole game wasn't meant for a 200+ ping environment lol.

    As for living in India and playing UT... I went through the same thing - lived in Sri Lanka for three years and Thailand for another three... not a single UT server pinged better than 300... so I played single player single player single player... lots of mutators and other fun stuff :)

    Yep.

    you almost need to go inside your opponents to frag them with the shield gun instead of just touching them from a short distance.

    No, it just goes off automatically without touching your opponent, so you have to start charging it again. It does work properly often enough, but the "duds" are really annoying.

    Or it goes off, pushes your opponent a few feet as though they were hit but they don't get hurt.

    It's fan-freakin-tastical. :)

    It's funny with newnet on, because occasionally (and at varying pings) the instant the eshield gun pops the person you are attacking will pop into their "real position" and then popo back into the position you see.

    Oh, I've noticed that, but I didn't think it was ping related. Doesn't make sense that it would be... why would it fire BEFORE touching anything?

    It looks like it touches them, but it just doesn't register as a hit.
