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.

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.
There is no better way to defeat your enemies but to slice and dice em right Link?...oopz forgot you can't speak. Well I guess a simple head nod is sufficed.
