My speculation on the weapon revolves around a vampire-like Drudge weapon that fires powerful shots when it eats up the users life, or the secondary weapons ammo. Then... it can fire weak shots without 'eating' up anything.
A weapon that requires the player to run around, switching out his secondarys quite often. I then went crazy with my imagination in figuring out what such a Drudge gun would look like. If this is a new entirely different weapon, and a Drudge one at that... i'm looking very forward to it. Or did.
I then realized that the quote from HVS Tony could apply to the Dark Star weapon....
