    UT99 was the greatest game ever and still is. I dislike the stinger. If the damn scottish guy and you disagree, that's your problem. Yes, I'm a faithful unreal gamer to answer your question. The stinger is a piece of crap. (I stand corrected on the pulse cannon pulse gun thing though.) The minigun was so much better and plus, the minigun/chaingun is an fps staple. You can't have a game w/o one.

    The stinger is essentialy a minigun except you are shooting some exotic (expensive?) crystal instead of lead.

    1. The closest things to Machineguns and Chainguns were the Nailgun and Super Nailgun.

    If I'm not mistaken, quake2 has a chaingun though.

    If I didn't know better, I'd say you liked Quake. Do you like the doom series?

    The chain gun was first seen in id software's games with the release of Wolf3D. Just checked, found the list. Man, I barely even remeber playing wolf3d.

    I like the SP ones. Not Quake 3 though.

    Of course I liked Doom, Doom was the first FPS I ever played in depth. (I did play Wolf3D a couple times before Doom came out.)

    I'm sure once UT2007 will be released, most of the whiners about minigun will be happy about the stinger. How can you dislike it, its primary fire is the same thing as a minigun expect the "bullet" trail is blue rather than yellow and it have a special secondary fire instead of a ****ty slow rate of fire...

    Yeah, keep hearing that the stinger is hit-scan in UC2... There really is no telling how it will be implemented in 2k7.

    It is however probably safe to say it will be very equivalent, and that no matter what non-asthetic changes it has from the minigun, they could have been equally implemented into the minigun, so there really is no point whining about anything.

    The bottom line is, Tyridium is Unreal, and that's cooler then it being modeled after anything in real life.

    Yup, none of the wrapons in UT should be plausible as a rule.

    you still havent answered my question, have you played unreal 1
    if you have, then yeah i agree that the stinger is a pretty early weapon in your arsenal , but if you havent, then you sound like your just saying the stinger sucks just because you havent used it before or something

    also, in quake 1, the nailguns were essentially identical to the Stinger in unreal 1 , but with only different rates of fire and with 2 places where the projectiles leave the gun rather than one...

    It's prolly just the fascination with the concept of the minigun, and nothing to do with the functionality of the weapon type in the game. That is why it is stupid. It's some silly American fascination with the ability to lay down large amounts of rapid fire destruction. Just think about how many movies it is glorified in. The "deforesting" scene in Predator stands out the most in my mind. I'd have rather seen the same thing done with a katana. Less waste that way.

    "Damn Scottish guy" eh? hm.

    The Unreal stinger was a poor weapon, the UC2 one is advanced from that, for the next evolution i'm imagining it'll be some kind of nail gun substitute, that'll hopefully light everything up nicely as it's passing - it does create it's own glow mind.

    Watch yourself Monster.
