Well, my bio sez it's the mass driver for me-I love seein' tanks fly across the map. Course, that's unmodded. I really like a lot of the mods out there(dark nova, flaming boulder, tree strike plasma wave cannon, etc. come to mind), but I don't think I can pick a favorite just yet. For now, the tornado is prolly my favorite weapon mod-really cool effects.

well I'm rather fond of the paper airplane... the 240mm is nice though for visuals the spirit bomb would be hard to beat

Lol. What're you complaining about, you get to play with it! I think the version I sent you is as final as it's going to get. Now it's just a matter of whipping up the other things I was thinking of and releasing a pack...

In terms of classic weapons, my favorite remains Swarmers. I just love charging a target and letting it loose. Boom!!

Favorite weapon?

Uhmm...My favorite classic weapon has got to be the MRL. Swarmers are neat, but a tad weak for me. The rockets, when they hit, usually finish the job. (And don't peter out in some swirling ballet.)

As for modded weapons...Das MIRVS all the way. Classic flow...good visuals, good sounds, and a balanced destructive potential--simplicity itself. The Tornado is an awesome tour-de- force--a modder's wet dream/nightmare, and fun to watch, but a little gimmicky for my tastes.

Just my opinion,

And Vlad's "Dark Nova" wins the best concept honors in my book...Good going.

heheh.. wait until you see the one that Jvortex is talking about. I think I'd be fairly safe in saying that it's nothing like anybody's seen before...

Yes, it's a power weapon, but it's not invunerable. It's possible to stop it from even doing what it's supposed to do :-)

However, I'm probably not going to release it by itself. I've noticed that most people download packs as opposed to individual weapons. Once I finish a few more weapons (already have 3 completely done, this one, the Dark Nova, and the PeaceKeeper), I'll release a pack.

Well, unmodified, I'd go for the Mass Driver too although tis a bit disorientating when used on you, or maybe the Plasma cannon, just a pity it takes the time for a coupla puter reboots to reload...

Modified weapon's gotta that Chaos of Fire weapon...you take out about 20 tanks in a matter of mins!!

Aside from the fuhgeddabouddit weapons, I feel as though I'm most effective with the flamer. For mods, tho, I friggin' LOVE Oli's boulder.... makes me laugh so hard! The tornado and MirvII are pretty bloody cool, too.

After the DDM and some online play earlier: the 120mm. Nothing better than spinning around your opponent exchanging shots.

Reminded me why I like this game so much.

After much pondering it would be the plasma mines. They are so fun to shoot and just cause frag counts to go up like nuts. Especially when it *seems* you spawn repeatedly with that as your weapon during a DDM.

I like the flamer for the classic weapon and 240mm for mod.

Well for classic. I would have to say mass driver Im a really slow learner but once i learn you can't get it outa me. Im discovering teh secrest of the MRL which may be my new favortie obsession for a while hehe For modded. What can i say It would have to be my GIANT NUKE AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA ITS VERY VERY SLOW!!! Its just the right speed, so you can outrun it. But it doesn't die very fast Its fun looking behind you. And you inch away fomr it. Then you Instantly spin forward and stay there trying to avoid pot holes.......ditches...etc anything that might make you slower or flip lol. And th esecond you hit a tree. Collide with another tank. Well....... you know the story. This one i made when i still had demo, and i was Raceing DreadNought on the Ramp. So i would go all over the level and that nuke just stayed behind me. Then eventaully about 1/4 the tanks inclduing me had a little friend. Cept THOSE CRUEL UNHEARTED PEOPLE BLEW THERE FREINDS UP!!!!! THEY STOPPED AND BLOW UP THER FREINDS THERE EVIL I TELL YOU! And me and dudy made a Giant YEllow Atomic Bomb It was fun hehe. Giant GIANT Mines. With Nuclear Graphics......etc we never released it tohugh............................ i have to dig it out dudy has it still i think and again i've forgotten the topic and i've lost myself as well.
