Day 13 - Carbonizer Mk9

A large man in a shiny metal suit comes at you with with a massive electronic laser gun. Who you gonna call?

I can't say I've ever actually used this bamf in multiplayer. In The Conduit's campaign, it was fun to use on Scarabs to hold them still and cook them to death, and was acceptably useful against the Trust or Drudge especially with the splash electricity helping out. Unfortunately, it was really cumbersome to reload or melee, and the low ammo count (15/45) made it less than ideal to carry for long stretches. Conduit 2 brings the Carbonizer back with a new alt-fire charge laser and what might be some sticky aim on the energy stream, but not much concrete info is available about it so far.
Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit. My quote rocks your socks.

The Carbonizer is certianly the 'gatling' gun of this game. Even though its not a repeated fire of bullets, it still gives you that satisfying feeling of being heavily armed against peons of loosers.

Me likes the big giant laser weapon of the sci-fi world. need video of Alt-Fire in action. NEED IT NOWZ.

Almost makes me think about putting it in my Heavy loadout. It would make oodles of sense.

That's basically one of the weapons I always keep for later use(when ammo isn't plenty).
The laser is just amazing and the kick you get after every sustained shot is one of its major highlights.

Reload animation is also a nice touche.

This weapon was always fun to use, But it was barely seen online because it was the power weapon of trust and close combat. It only spawned once so once its gone, its not coming back. Im glad its going to be more alive and used like the other barely touched weapons such as Hive Cannon and Shierker. I just hope this gun will be balenced.

Barely used it. Will try it out offline w/ my bros, then go online, maybe. :D

I never got a chance to use it in multiplayer. Never!
I apologize for whatever I just said.

"Reload animation is also a nice touche. "

Oh glad you liked it. Its been redone with more awesomeness for C2 :)

Alright Tony! Figures with you there at HVS that you'd spice up the reload animations! Cant wait to see the new reload!

Now then, please tell me theres an upgrade(perk) that allows for dual USP.45's because i want to see that dual pistol reload in Conduit 2!

I think the alt-fire will be fun to use. I hope that they have the bullet penetration system that was apparently in Grinder, since then you could get some intense multikills (I'd like this for the Phase Rifle too). I never really used this weapon in the first game though, since usually I would just let someone else get it and snipe them out (and watch them spray and pray the whole time trying to find me XD).
