    If you've played Halo you'll know that the seeking needler shards can be dodged.

    No it doesn't encourage spam seeing as the heat up to uber speed takes a good 3-4 seconds of pure shooting.

    It eats through your ammo supply and is really only usefull against multiple targets.

    Makes no sense they say they're trying to get back to UT style play, the MINI-GUN is a huge part of that, this is UT not Unreal. I hope this is just a rumor because not having the MINI would suck.

    if this is a poll then add another vote for having the MINI in game.

    Well, the Stinger is a kind of minigun. It have a primary fire which is the same or even better and a secondary that is very special instead of slow rate useless bullets. Minigun as it is right now, is just really lame as is the shock rifle.

    I like the stinger its got combo's to with seeking needles and just a normal fire set when you got loads of ammo and you hold the button down it will spin faster and faster and thats very very cool done in UC2 so expect that in UT2k7 to

    Sounds like a recipe for super-spam around flag carriers.

    You can't complain about spammy flag runs and say that the mini's better than the stinger. They're both exactly the same spammyness just the stinger has a diff secondary mode.

    It just kills me you guys are all arguing over wether the minigun is better or not than a gun that hasn't even been made yet... (the new 2k7 version I mean)

    Fragging is pointless without a purpose, The Flag!

    Plus, imo, the bigger maps with lifts etc makes for more fun kills.

    NO MINIGUN MUTATORS. Bring the minigun back as a real weapon. Do not give me, a faithful unreal gamer, this ****ty stinger that fires gay energy shard things.

    The pulse cannon from UT99 is the greatest weapon ever bring it back too.

    If you were a faithful unreal gamer you'd know why it's being changed, you'd also know it was called the pulse gun.

    Crystal shards, not energy shards.

    Depending on how they handle the sniper rifle, this is shaping up to the the best Unreal weapon set I've seen. IH is back, no mini with a beefed up stinger equivalent, still has Shock/Rox/Flak (prolly never change), still has Pulse/Link equivalent. I have a feeling the canister will simply be whatever weapon is appropriate to the map, with a method to handle different kinds of ammo, so well pobably still have mostly functional Bio (just pray it's more like UT bio)...

    It's gonna be awesome...
