It's probably going to be a special weapon of sorts, like the lasher, as opposed to a more conventional weapon. They wouldn't waste such a cool reload animation on another assault rifle.

Probably the most interesting thing about it is that it's not using the circular batteries for ammo, unlike nearly every other VS weapon to-date.

Whelp. At least they are trying to give people another reason to play as Vanu... It certainly isn't because the weapons, or vehicles are more effective (or remotely on par with) than the other factions. :/

Re: Command Center Reveals new Weapon Concepts


I like it since it doesn't look like every other Vanu weapon. Although I mostly play as NC and TR so... VS players want to chime in on its recognizability?

Except for the Magrider, we are alright.

What do the Vanu have in massive abundance? whine. A single vanu can put an entire group of church mothers to shame

Interesting concept for the new battery ejection system, the gun looks like a straight up Pulsar though, VS getting another overhaul pass?

I'm sure I had a super-soaker water pistol that looked just like that. I know it would be completely unfair but it would be damn funny is they gave the Vanu a water pistol; a gun that they could quite literally power with their own tears!

Hell and here I was thinking we didn't need any more reason for people to play Vanu. At least not on Connery. Here's to the next GU for the 4th factioners..!

"Canaris: What do the Vanu have in massive abundance? whine."

I could point you towards a shit ton of TR whining in many threads, complaining about balance is universal to all 3 factions.

Yet I would still point at Twisted's exaggerated whining in this thread. Game. Set. Match.

Any exaggerated whining is best kept where it belongs, the official forums.

As to the new weapon, well well well doesn't that look rather spiffy. I wonder what kind of weapon it's going to be, judging by the size of the battery. An LMG? Seems too big to be an SMG/carbine/AS. A heavy weapon perhaps or a redesign of the Lasher?
Did they happen to mention anything regarding its function on the Command Center?
