Day 18 - Dark Star

When was the last time an invention dealing with black holes ended up working?

Eurogamer Trailer: http://www.eurogamer.net/videos/exclusive-conduit-2-gameplay-trailer-1

Our final known weapon for the WotD series, the Dark Star has been completely untalked about outside of a passing mention about the name and black holes. In the first trailer, we see it shoot blackish bullets that hit, stick, and burn the target, and the newer trailer shows what appears to be a charge shot that flies out slowly (very slowly), falls under gravity, and possibly moves toward targets. The giant ball of blackness hits a surface and sticks, doing splash damage like a Radiation Grenade, but probably more powerful. No evidence of the full ammo count exists to date.

It's ****ing satire, damnit. My quote rocks your socks.

Even though seems to be pretty strong, it doesnt look like is going to be overpowered since its RoF and bullet speed is quite low.


Ps: Guess we're out of guns

Yeah very powerful, but it looks like its easy to dodge. I think a good strategy would be to use this on door ways, or enclosed areas.
#4Simok123Posted 1/23/2011 3:43:29 PM
IM not sure what i think about this weapon. I mean, it looks cool, but im not really hyped for it. Im more hyped for the phase rifle, aegis device, and ARC Eclipes then anything really <3

Do you know what would make this weapon epic, if it really is a black hole gun instead of some radiation gun.

What I mean is, potentially since they already have the gravity gun worked out then they know how the gravity physics would work on the weapons, and that would mean that all weapons fired through it would hit nothing but a gravity well while all players trying to jump through it would be sucked in as well.


Translation: perfect door stopper preventing all fire friendly or not, and no one can cross it until it fades.

For all we know, the shot from Dark Star could have a gravitation well that can suck very nearby players in. Since we havent seen much of this damn weapon, we can only speculate so much.

So far, we seen it shoot, and shoot from the hip only. Could it have an Alternate Fire? Could it have a crazy weapon upgrade? Possibilities of this weapon are very high right now.

Need more weapons though, come on, more Drudge weapons!!!

Y'know, when you think about it, this is kinda like a rad grenade launcher. It fires projectiles that stick to enemies and do damage over time and the black hole can be used to block off areas like the rads.

It's technically the opposite, but that's beside the point. >.>

A black hole (pulls in energy) vs radiation (puts out energy)
