    I think what Smoke & I mean is that with the homework hes been having this year, you are in for quite a wait, as he doesn't have much time to code.

    Yeah get in line. Some of us were requesting weapons before you even knew this place existed.

    DAT'S A HINT, SMOKE ;)

    Besides, didn't he call it the lamest weapon he ever heard of? Does that sound like he's gonna finish it? :p

    I actually never liked the idea of that gun much, but I thought I'd be nice an' make it, since it was pretty simple. Blasted homework.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Argh, I say! Homework == Bad, wrong, stupid, evil, unhealthy, stimpt nicht, incorrect, un-good, very lacking in kindness, the oppositie of anything anywhere near good, etc....

    AKA, Homework is a fu'cking waste of time. And are you still going to publicaly release it? And you never did answer me when I asked you if you would make it so bots knew how to use my gun. Maybe I should stop calling it "my gun"...

    They'll use it, and randomly change modes, but that's about it (like there're so many unique uses for each mode anyway...).

    The problem is:

    The thing that makes your gun so lame is that it doesn't have a weakness, sure, you could limit ammo, but rapid-fire and very scarce ammo doesn't sound like an effective combination to me, there is a risk of suicide I suppose, but I assume that both of these are taken care of in features you didn't mention, i.e. Infinate ammo and can't hurt user, so as to make it the "ultimate" weapon. Why does that need multimode, it doesn't need any other modes.
    That's why it's lame, no weakness, as simple as that. Similarily, I find the AK-47 mod is too powerful, with ammo in too good supply.

    You don't thinks it's good, don't use it. And this wepon does have SOME balance to it. It only comes with 150 ammo (RIGHT SMOKE!?) and it replaces the redeemer so you can't get more.

    Ah but...

    Only 150 ammo? Only is probably not the best word, 150 direct hits(since the homing capabilities will have to be practically undogable for you to like it) with an ASMD combo blast would hurt alot, even if they did default damage, not the instant kill blasts the VGL5000000 uses, one shot is all that's really needed to clear out a small room, assuming the ratio ammo in pickup to maximum ammo is the same as the redeemer(likely since you can only get ammo from a weapon pickup), that makes 75 shots in a pickup, since the redeemer is often fairly easy to reach, unless the weapon didn't want to be picked up, and would attack people who went near it, and then obeyed whoever picked it up, it would not really have any balance at all.
    Perhaps, instead, there should be only one, and doesn't replace the redeemer, like the man with the golden gun senario on goldeneye, players should get extra frags for killing the VGL500000 user.
