Day 12 - ARC Eclipse

A highly inefficient laser pointer with a tendency to overheat. However it does not use batteries for you green-tech lovers out there.

Weapons Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6OvcWiaEdc

Ammo: Infinite
Type: Energy
Alt-Fire: Iron Sights, Charge Cloaking
Cost: cr.27000

One of the new weapons for Conduit 2, the ARC Eclipse's main function is that instead of ammo there is a temperature gauge that rises when fired and lowers when charging. Charging the weapon will turn the user invisible until they release the trigger. When the gun overheats or freezes, the player has a lengthy animation that prevents switching or firing weapons temporarily.

Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit. My quote rocks your socks.

Don't forget to mention it gets stronger the hotter it is if I recall. This weapon is going to be my main.

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.

Dont know if I am going to love this weapon or hate it because of the response to it.

Flashbangs zap people out of invis, so I can just imagine the spammers on this one. The invis that it allows almost does not seem worth it considering it seems to only lasts 10 seconds or so before it freezes over and zaps you out of invis. The amount of shots you can get off seems a bit limiting but just enough to kill a person or two before it over heats if you practice trigger control.


What I love: 10 seconds is all I need to get around a corner and introduce a player to the floor, proper trigger control will let you zap in and out of invis and allow greater lengths of turf to be covered with a sudden blip on the radar being the only random sign of you, it will scratch my predator itch a little, the solution for turret abuse beyond sniping, 10 seconds of invis paired up with improved melee or perhaps rapid kneel down heal may be fun, and oh it will let me be even sneakier when it comes to both the game and general pvp/co-op.

Sounds like a lot of fun to use. Probably going to be widely used.

Stack off my Eclipse.

I apologize for whatever I just said.

Huh don't know if i should say it cough *overpowered* cough or cough *total garbage * cough or cough *great weapon that is balanced* cough.

It mainly depend on 3 things :

-Time you remain cloaked
-Number of consecutive shot before overheating and damage progression
-Full cloak or visible to some extend .

Anyway a real good concept for a weapon (not new but we).

You can be my guest and back out how quickly things heat up and cool down. There are several videos of it being fired and cloaking with it.

Definately using this gun, great for sneaking around. Im also wondering if you put speed reload on it reduces the over heat and freeze time on it.

#9HeroofDarkPosted 4/10/2011 7:09:01 PM
I'm really interested in how this gun is going to turn out.
Does anyone know if the Phase Rifle will be able to see cloaked players?

Life's no fun if you take it seriously.

^It's interesting. The Phase rifle uses heat signatures to lock on to people, and since the Eclipse gets colder when you cloak, I'm guessing it'll probably make you cold as well. I wonder...

"Immature" is a word made up by people not having fun so that they can look down on those having fun and therefore feel better about not having fun.
