we discuss the hive cannons alternate fire

#1IMA1337_FearMePosted 4/16/2010 6:08:19 PM
when i first played con1, i thought of the hive cannon as a shotgun before i discovered its rapid fire capabilities.

so what if by twisting the wii mote, it could fire more ammo at once but more delay than a regular hive cannon shot? it could easily make smgs formidable weapon choices and balance out the weapons.

*feel free to discuss other weapons as well.

and btw, have melee weapons been confirmed? o.o

double kill!!! (think what you want)

I think it would be cool if the alt fire let you fire out a swarm of small insects that slows down the movement speed of whatever opponent they swarm. Maybe with a small damage over time effect as well if that isn't useful enough.

It's been confirmed that there are none I think.

Believe me, having the Master Sword as a melee weapon in The Grinder will be much better than having a melee weapon in C2.

Master Sword FTW but anyway I can't say much about the Hive Cannon since I couldn't get kills with it. When I first read about it I was like ohhh man I can't wait to try it out. Used it in SP and was like "koooool". Used it in MP and couldn't kill anyone except for maybe one or two lucky kills when using the rapid fire.

Howabout it shoots homing bees with a low rate of fire/low damage that auto-target for a weak but easy to use alt fire that totally rips off one of the most fun weapons from the original Half Life?

Cluster fire sounds the best to me.

Pretty sure every weapon has one.
Burstfire on the handgun could be mixed with a lower damage to balance it out as a weapon.

Hive Cannon

Main fire: Rapid fire of small explosive bugs. Twisting the wiimote changes rate and spread of fire.

Alternative fire: Shooting and meleeing shoots a giant bug that impales into whatever it impacts. After 3 seconds of impaling the object, the bug explodes in a big radias.
