Day 14 - SMAW

I know what you're thinking, "Did he fire 1 shot or 0?" Well you just have to ask yourself one question: "Do you feel lucky?"

HVS Network Gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjqGyemS5qI#t=425s

Ammo: 1/5
Type: Explosive
Alt-Fire: Scope
Cost: cr.55000

Have you used a rocket launcher in any other game? Then you've used the SMAW. OSOK on direct hits or near misses and has a wide blast radius. Rockets travel about the same speed as before. Ammo is reduced slightly, and the reload time seems unchanged.

I think the real question is, what has HVS done to make it so the SMAW doesn't make this game 10x worse? I know the "explosive" weapon type is gone, but I hope the rocket launcher isn't slammed again.

Explosive Focus reduces splash damage taken, public matches don't have weapons caches, it holds less reserve ammo, and it's a primary weapon.

And it's really expensive.

And it has a huge crosshair like the phase rifle.

Hey have you considered doing a map of the day? It might have to wait until after the game comes out now since there's so little time left, but it's an idea.

I apologize for whatever I just said.

SMAW users will get there just desserts once people start unlocking the Aegis Device. You'll see.

Sounds good. After I finish the weapons (and 1 day for grenades), I'll do the 4 armor upgrade divisions. Of course, I'll have to do a couple of those in one day to get it done before release, but oh well.

The day I see someone getting owned by their returned rocket I will laugh so hard. Hmm it would be sweet if that was an achievement with a title such as return to sender.

An awesome weapon accompanied by the reload animation, close range shove swing, and the glorious sound of the explosion after the rocket hits something.

Amount carried was also a plus.
