The problem with restraining speech is, who gets to set the rules? If it's only okay in a certain time or place, who gets to say what time and what place?

First vote!

I don't see how anyone could vote for anything else other than FIRIN MAH LAZER.

Voted FIRIN' MAH LAZER, but the reload mechanic is a little annoying. I don't often let it drain completely but if I do I end up blocking the reload four or five times before I finally just give up and eat a Thermal Clip to get it going again.

Why does a freakin' laser beam have range limitations?! D:<
#5TysakasaPosted 10/28/2012 10:39:41 PM
Yeah that last option is too tempting to ignore. Runners up would be damage. I personally haven't used it (the only ultra-rare that eludes me, even though I don't have the Collector SMG, I'm ruling that out at the moment due to it's recent arrival) but most of the people I know have. On the right character and mods slapped onto it, the thing is quite handy. The ramp up damage can be problematic at times but irrelevant when you put the right ammo mod on it.

Well, after awhile the energy eventually loses it's "focus" and burns out, similar to how a bullet eventually drops due to gravity and its velocity slowing down. If memory serves as to how energy weapons work, a certain amount of energy has to be built up in order for it to fire at the right distance. The further you want to fire, the more energy that is required. This causes another problem as the energy required builds up heat and you need to have a proper cooling method in order to keep a constant fire. So the range then becomes limited in order to continue firing for longer periods.

Course, I'm probably talking out my ass regarding it, been awhile since I've paid that much attention to the sci-fi universe XD

My only gripe with the ramp up feature is that enemies can break it easily, causing you to start it over. The geth are especially notorious for this.

Otherwise... you know.
