I'm not sure. I wasn't very active back then.
Liger and Punch should both know though.

If they're not on, I'm sure you could PM them.

No need. I was summoned.

The taco shotter was an extremely overpowered gun. For it's default fire, it fired a taco that exploded in the air in a glorious display of meat, cheese and lettuce. Not normal meat and cheese, though. The cheese was acidic. If it landed on anybody, it slowly drained away their health and spread to anybody they came withing 2 feet of. The meat acted as miniature TPC bullets. They exploded in an electrical current thing, dealing as much damage as the TPC bullets themselves. The lettuce, however, was normal lettuce and didn't do anything.

HVS removed it about 2 weeks after launch, because literally every match had a taco shotting noob in it. It was so much worse than the SMAW. It almost literally made matches unplayable.

HVS removed all footage of it from the internet, for fear of people learning about their terrible attempts at balance. I have some footage on my computer, but I fear if I upload it and post the link here, my account will be banned, and I've had this account way too long to let that happen. Sorry :/

It was going to be a weapon that basically acknowledged the DaOs campaign that this board was doing back before and during release, it would also accompany the Orange soda machine in doing so.

HVSTony did mention that despite some progress, it never really got off the ground in its development.
