ITT: We nitpick fake weapons
>On some models it looks like it would be really easy to singe your wrists and arms if not entirely cut them off
>What's the point of two blades?
>It's really bright despite being used in large part by stealth covenant units
There's probably some more that I'm missing.
all true, but it is cool and that's what the designers wanted when they make it, something cool and fun.
Its designed to look like two Sangheili Curveblades held together and because its mainly intended as a thrusting weapons so wrist injuries wouldn't be common, and its deactivated while being stealthy
> he doesn't have a 4 foot bayonet on the end of his sniper rifle.
You know, if you think of it, Brutes are really just the covenants carpenters.
They carry nailguns, hammers, and saw things.
Hell, their first vehicle comes straight from farm equipmnt.
If you noticed the purple blobs on the ground (in the Flood containment center set up by the Forerunners on Halo), those are its' "ammunition". I wouldn't doubt that it loads from the bottom of it, below the grip, and then fed through the top through the grip and through some cheese grater like thing to give it it's shape. It's probably viscous enough to handle to get into the Needler, then it probably converts it into useful purple pointy things before being shot.
They do, they just tossed it out.
dual blade to maximize forward and reverse swings
and with ur power sheild it should keep ur wrists good aslong as u dont hold it upon an area too long to deplete the sheild
i see it as a highly natural to grip weapon. becomes an extension of ur fist
Are you sure that was VLADOF? VLADOF has rate of fire, not burst fire. Dhal does burst fire weapons.
Only 5? The lowest any assault rifle in BL2 should have is around 12 and that is for jakobs.
there are two kinds of fuel rod cannons you can wield, the only one you can use in the first game, the purple one is battery operated and the gold one is clip fed, i think the purple one was made to resemble the ones used by hunters and banshees
theres one in fable 2
Oh, BL1. Yeah, that makes sense.
>tfw I got excited as fuck for the fuel rod tanks, only to find out I couldn't board them in-game
Also, the fact that Master Chief can punch through tank armor is fucking ridiculous.
spartans are biological and mechanical augmented, without the armor they have been known to shatter bone in one punch, their own bones have been infused with high strength ceramic and are able to use all of their muscle capability instead of 1/3 like normal humans can, the armor is made of a high strength titanium alloy that further increases the spartans strength to be able to lift 3 times their weight minimum, with them weighing half a ton total
Or the radioactive gas that is ejected with the thing.
>Jakobs sniper rifle
>you have to work a bolt anyway to move over to the next chamber
I know it defeats the purpose of having a revolving chamber and it makes absolutely no sense to manufacture one but id buy the fuck out of that if it was real
They do, they just go out of their way to make it as stupid as possible, some guns have reversed recoil so it gets more accurate the longer you hold down the trigger, some guns rather than reloading them you throw them and they explode like a grenade then another one with a full mag materializes into your hands
as far as the energy sword goes
>split blades could get stuck
>unclear how to activate
>deactivation or accidental activation possible
>considering size of handle and shape could be unweidly if too heavy
thats because the elites have a very similar armor, the spartans were created before the covenant invaded and were used just for higher risk military operations, but when the covenant came they were re-purposed and refitted with new armor that was improved by reverse engineering elite armor which is where the energy shield came from
>Sangheili wrists are the same as human wrists
>Two blades is basically the same shit as double edged knives
>Weapons are never drawn by a Sangheili unless he intends to use it, it usually isn't put back until it has tasted blood. Retarded warrior culture thing. Therefore it is never activated until it is used.
Unless you play Anarchy Gaige, then your guns hold less ammo, but reload faster. It's based on percentage, so just in case your gun only holds 1 round like some Jakobs shotguns do, and you now have a gun with an ammo capacity of 0.
Also, you will be able to miss people right infront of you while killing people you can't even see with the ricochet.
Then what is the size of the bullets this fires?
Jakobs gatling guns take the cake for retarded gun design in Borderlands 2.

Team fortress 2 minigun has some of the worst accuracy imaginable.
The guns in farcry 2 have no durability at all. Every enemy's gun works fine for them, but is a pile of rust the moment you touch it. Guns jam consistently then eventually blow up. Gold AKM will remedy this of course.
The "ar16" was a good attempt at the blood diamond colt CAR-15 but pretty far off still
Jakobs gatling guns are great for anarchy mechromancers when out of shotgun ammo though.
Prefer Vladof, the ones that are just space AKs without too much fancy stuff. Doesn't matter if the individual shot doesn't do a lot of damage when you have 280-400 stacks, what matters is the shit tons of bullets going everywhere. Just mouse1+W in their general direction.
Also space AK.
Jakobs revolvers, Bandit launchers, Vladof assault rifles, Bandit/Torgue/Jakobs/Hyperion shotguns, Dahl sniper rifles and Hyperion or Maliwan smgs. But anything works with anarchy mechros.
I don't remember it being that ugly
>Reload animation of G3 or any of its variant
>Always do that retarded charging handle pull
i suppose deus ex is ugly too, right?
also sauce on pic please
Energy sword is double bladed because its plasma in a magnetic field IIRC. So a symmetrical design makes sense.
Plus, the only elites given energy swords were probably smart enough to not burn themselves using it.
Dont want to get into a nerd fight but the spartans were intended to be the best soldiers ever raised and molded to be loyal to the cause whatever it may be. They were trained to live and breathe war. The only thing they got from the elites that was added to the armor was improved shields. They had they're own shields WAY before hand. Which were perfectly fine against kinetic weaponry that humans use.
Right, I have a PTR. There is no last round bolt hold open, so you pull the bolt back each time. If you are a pleb you do it like in the video, a true operator uses the HK slap for added impact.
I don't even give a shit, I love That Gun
You just pull the thing off the top and put in a fresh assault clip.
I assumed they just shouldered it the way a modern soldier would shoulder an MP5. You can't dual wield it in ODST for example.
Well technically the metal only helped the initial re-entry. The final few kilometers were him falling on his own. Watch the opening and you'll see a little burning speck fall off the big one.
They had rudimentary shielding if anything at all, until they engaged the covenant and Chief captured the Jackal riot control shield thing. From that the Spartan shields were engineered.
>Implying Cortana didn't choose 6
Who delivered her to The Pillar of Autumn?
Also, 6 was supposed to go with Chief onto the Pillar of Autumn until Emile was killed and they needed covering fire off the planet.
Fuck his death breaks my heart
Cortana choose chief as her protector and she felt that she could reach maximum potential by being his partner. 6 was just the best guy for the dangerous job of getting her to the pillar.
We already had this convo. Emile died like a bitch and was the token minority. He had the lowest confirmed kills AND the lowest confirmed ingame kills. The pseudo-spartans do better and the marines in cut scenes did better. His showboat attitude and emotional instability lead to him getting backstabbed.
Some kinda weird axial-feed magazine, but a magazine.
>Covenant space magic
>mfw I would love one if it was more ergonomic and I could load it with ammo that wasn't radioactive
Unless they have a pill I can take that prevents cancer I don't want to fuck with radioactive shit.
The fuck are you talking about the clones for? I was talking about their shields. You know, the hardware.
It's canon other Spartans have survived reentry without the use of a reentry pack though.
It also happened on Reach. A Pelican with a group of Spartans got shot down during reentry and they all jumper for it. IRC one or two died and the rest were fucked up but still able to fight.
The gimmick for Tediore weapons is that instead of replacing a magazine, when it's out of ammunition (Or earlier if you want more damage) you toss it, it explodes, and you simply digistruct a new one.
i thought it is that every super soldier which chief is one, im pretty sure odst is not, fucking 400lb all muscle 7'+ all had AIs made for them aka cortana, to have a mind and thought/guidance/morals to go with the supersoldier killer they fabricated. 6 was just the means of getting cortana to the soldier she was matched with, master chief, and just through reality chief would kick 6's ass, but from human bravery, 6 does the same shit as chief with no mjolinr armor or supersolder genes
who else /cried when cortana died/
>6 does the same shit as chief with no mjolinr armor or supersolder genes
6 is wearing the same mjolinr armor the Spartan IIs get, and the narrow gene requirements were only for maximum compatibility with the augments.
By the time the Spartan III program got started, the augmentations were safer and could be used on a wider spectrum.
>>It's really bright despite being used in large part by stealth covenant units
Yeah this always made me laugh when you see an active camo elite charging you with a glowing neon blue sword.
You got the Spartan III and IV programs mixed up. Halo 4 has the Mk.4s which consist of adult volunteers who undergo the much safer and refined enhancement surgery, most Mk.3s were regular humans given armor with stealth camouflage and were considered expendable.
>confirmed for never playing BL2
The Casual SWORDSPLOSION is the best variant, gets a bonus to projectiles fired so you get three swords that explode into smaller swords that explode, instead of just one.
Also, complaining about Borderlands weapon designs is retarded, it's not supposed to be realistic.
You are very misinformed with the Spartan III program.
Spartan IIIs were recruited from children orphaned by Covenant attacks, which there were a lot of. They still had to meet some genetic requirements, but the augments had been made much safer and refined after studying what went wrong the first time around so the genetic requirements weren't nearly as extreme. Not to the extent they could inject anyone off the street with them, but still much better than what the Spartan IIs were put though.
They were given improved versions of all the same augments Spartan IIs got, in that regard they are superior. But they are considered expendable because they aren't outfitted with the powered armor, which was by far the most expensive part of the Spartan II program.
I'd like to see if you could make a gun that shoots tons of exploding needles in real life... (just nowwhere near the same as the needler)
Did anyone ever get the hang of the needler in multiplayer?
The cool factor is strong in those ones.
I'm happy with functional looking stuff, though.
You know, back in the day you just shot people with guns that didn't have lasers, red dot sights, flashlights, custom barrels and triggers etc.
>Space elevators don't consume energy
You would need massive ones consuming more energy than a planet could possibly sustain producing, all to make a shitty, vulnerable ship full of unnecessarily large pressurized areas.
The UNSC has cheap as fuck fusion reactors, and the covenant has millennia old alien technology powered by who knows what. Energy isn't really a concern for either of them.
UNSC ships also aren't very big at all, and Covenant ships are mostly solid metal. The actual "interior" is much smaller than the overall size would suggest.
You niggers do realize it's an ENERGY sword, right?
As in that the actual blades don't have mass?
So the only thing with weight or that could get stuck is the handle, while the blades are weightless?
In at least one game, Halo 3 I think, the sword is cloaked along with the wielder. The camo-spoilign floatign blue sword only appeared in Halo 1 and Halo 2
Interesting, does it work with this kind of energy sword?
Assuming that there's a constant stream of plasma:
>Armor goes off
>Sword is "bent" for a second as some plasma is pushed away
>More plasma comes out within a fraction of a second
on a list of why anime is shit this has got to be a top 5. Why do japs sperg out with retarded exposition every time something happens.
99% of anime goes like this
What? Power is not a major concern for space elevators, the only thing preventing us from building them is lack of workable materials.
Once we get into space proper power becomes a non-concern. Solar collector satellites dog.
>hurr, I know nothing about how FUCK HUGE actual interstellar spacecraft will be.
Granted, Covenant and UNSC designs make no sense regarding real-world physics, but when we do make interstellar spacecraft they will be miles long and as big as cities. And that's only the physical parts of the craft.
>look up bussard ramjets
I don't think you understand how much energy it takes to put something into space.
UNSC designs, aside from the Infinity, seem pretty good to me
>Not retardedly huge
>Just enough guns
>Big ass radiators
Where are the radiators?
No visible forward retro rockets. No evidence of a "turn and burn" in practice.
Artificial gravity? Why? Seems like it'd be much more efficient to have the decks oriented along the axis of thrust.
And don't even get me started on the Orbital Defense Platforms...
>been a huge Halo nerd since the first game, not hating.
The wing things on the sides are radiators of some kind apparently. While they aren't identfiable in the game models, the books mention retro rockets and maneuvering thrususters all over. Artifical Gravity is a bit of an inconsistentcy. In the early books the UNSC had no artificial gravity, used rotating sections on bigger ships, and later stole artificial gravity plates from the covenant. Now they seem to have always had it.
What is wrong with the orbital defense platforms?
>Where are the radiators?
That, I don't know. It may have been removed on the Savannah along with it's Slipspace drive because it was on a suicide mission in that pic
>No visible forward retro rockets. No evidence of a "turn and burn" in practice.
They're there. I could point to where they're supposed to be, but they're on the flat portions facing forward
Please, halo has retarded lore (humans pushed into a neolithitic age) and even worse novelizations. The gameplay is bland and the characters are boring. The community is full of manchildren and neckbeards. Nothing about ANY of the games is redeeming.
I'll give them that. Maybe some sort of duel purpose armor/radiator assembly since it's fucking 2500 and meta materials are already a thing.
I'm aware of the emergency maneuvering thrusters that were frequently used to avoid plasma, but for a ship the mass of the Autumn to travel from the outer edges of the Reach system to Reach itself in a few short hours, it'd have to do a turn and burn in order to slow down from it's fuckhuge velocity. Those massive fusion engines on it's ass aren't going to be counteracted by whatever measly retro-rockets could be mounted on the bow.
Mac gun fires a round at .2c. Either the platform is flung into the Earth at .2c, or the exhaust from it's stabilizers flies toward the Earth at .2c. Either way, it's not the Covies that we need to be worried about in Halo 2.
If the UNSC has gravity plating, why are they still using fusion engines? You'd think they'd finagle a way to build reactionless drives if they have that.
I'm afraid I don't see you're point. MAC fires, everyone flies towards the ceiling. MAC fires, everyone flies towards the forward wall. Either way people are getting tossed around, it'd just make more sense when the ship is underway to build the ship like a skyscraper instead of a bus.
Mfw I read every halo book ever and loved every minute of it
>Mac gun fires a round at .2c. Either the platform is flung into the Earth at .2c, or the exhaust from it's stabilizers flies toward the Earth at .2c. Either way, it's not the Covies that we need to be worried about in Halo 2.
Its a matter of the amount of thrust generated vs the mass of the object. Those defense platforms are huge, the MAC projectiles comparatively tiny. It also isn't a continuous stream of acceleration, which makes it easier to counteract
No not really. And don't give me that "it was made by bungie so it's canon bullshit."
>bothering to explain conservation of momentum to someone who doesn't deserve the explanation
>doing a bad job of it
You could have just said "GB2/highschool physics" or "you forgot mass fucking retard" and been done with it, but noooo. You want to be a tryhard instead.
The one in new vegas is referencing the reference to blade runner in FO2
I think it was a 12.7mm pistol in game but everyone just called it "that gin from blade runner" hence the name
Mine did, but the regular courses were essentially tailored for retards and mexicans. You had to join the Pre-AP and AP classes if you wanted an actual education. Only whites and asians in those. And the one indian guy in our school, who was basically a genius.
Woops it was based more on the Garand. I haven't played in a while
"According to Joshua Sawyer, its name is derived from the fact that many players referred to the .223 pistol as "That Gun in Fallout and Fallout 2.""
you're retarded. In the Original FO's it was one of the best weapons in the game, as such many players communicated about it with each other by referring to it as "that gun"
This is the only ship I've seen in video games that has the Decks built as you said so its more of a flying Skyscraper then a space battleship.
This ship is also built around its weapon. Its thrusters are also a giant beam weapon which can be used for bombardment
Only the helghast have ships that are like tradition decks because they have a lot of tech no one else has (Energy shielding, Teleportation, Cloaking, and more)
Woah brah why the hostility? I'm just a casual anyway. I've only seen it in FONV and it was referred to as That Gun
I always thought the Hammer of Dawn was kind of a stupid weapon. Really cool in concept but if you were gonna be serious about it
>Only works at certain times during the the day
>Only one glassing satellite in the sky, ever
>No ability to defend yourself while you're targeting with it
I feel like Aircraft with BRRT or cannons would be a hell of a lot more realistic, and practical.
Logistics must be a bitch for a ship that big
>not liking GoW
I like to think they somehow have a dozen or so of the satellites and they maintain a geosynchronous orbit around the aiming device. Or is it canon they only have one?
I have no idea. I feel like it would only make sense to have multiple satellites, and the game only makes the weapon itself so limited for balance/plot movement.
Most GOW weapons are retarded when you try to consider real life applications though.
>mfw the spread on any of the assault rifles
I dunno why but all of a sudden I wanna make a vidya that follows every single libtard stereotype about "gun nuts"
Killing children, hi-capacity assault clips, blatant racism, etc. I'd make a thread about the idea but I dunno if this would be the place for it
>no mabs defect

>designers get rid of its one positive trait—infinite self-generating ammo—in favor of a 30-shot magazine which is nearly impossible to find anywhere, because reasons
>is also the standard-issue rifle for the 10 million or so active duty personnel in space and on the colonies
>Not jamming stripper clips into guides
The original concept they were going for made so much more sense. Basically you could carry around spare heatsinks and would have the choice to wait for cooldown like in ME1, or eject and swap in a new one for faster shooting. You can enable this with an .INI edit too, but its really weird with the UI not matching up
I would just like to complain and say why couldn't it eat heat sinks and once you ran out you went back to mass effect 1 infinite ammo/overheating but no bioware is to busy gargling cum
There's a bell curve of realism. Game designers routinely cross it.
At some point a ship becomes so massive as to be effectively useless, because its too slow, requires too much in the way of resources to build or maintain, can be easily outmaneuvered, and retard-tier big ships generate their own internal gravity, which would gradually begin to crush its infrastructure from the inside.
Also, unless there's space magic involved
>big mother fucking ship
>thousands of ancient aliums on-board
>accelerates to FTL speeds
>decelerates at destination
>entire crew rendered into jelly
I think that top part is the targeting system. In ME lore, the guns have an advanced targeting system that automatically calculates adjustments for wind, weather, range, etc. Which is silly considering they shoot incredibly tiny projectiles nearly as fast as the speed of light.
>Add an acog scope to a sniper rifle

Mass Effect 1 was an RPG with shooter elements. Mass Effect 2 was a shooter with RPG elements.
>Mass Effect 3 was a SJW circle-jerk that was so preoccupied with how progressive it was being that it forgot to have a good ending that actually made your choices throughout the series matter, and was so overwhelmed by real-world bullshit surrounding it that the game itself was overshadowed by the ridiculous controversies coagulating around it like a ball of infected puss and dried blood. Period blood.
And now, for the only non-homosexual rifle in the whole franchise.

Also watching a two-shot cylinder (er, "slab", I guess) spin is hypnotizing.
It's just a large-frame Taurus revolver. I've never played the game, what's the reload animation like? Does it just have one chamber in the cylinder? Or are there 6, but you ignore five of them?
And? ME took a huge shit all over itself with 2 and 3. The shitty weapon selection wasn't even close to the worst part.
ME1 master race always. When I think "Mass Effect" I think of it as an one-off standalone RPG that sadly never got a sequel. Do the same as you will be happier and better in bed.
I just don't understand why this was so hard to do...
Half the reason I stopped playing borderlands was literally because the guns were all fucking retarded. The other half was >lol memes, look were so funny and randumb!
