This isn't really origanal, but TM has yet to see anything like this.

It shoots a projectile of a liquid that upon contact with ANYTHING, breaks open and makes a large block of ice. The tempature change is very bad for a tank, and can cause sevear damage. A large tank can work its way out by it's residual heat, melting a way out, a small tank however, will become stuck. If the missile is a near miss, the expansion of the ice will send your target flying.

This weapon has at least three usues I have found so far:

1: The most obvious, use it to freeze your opponants, and do sevear damage in the process.

2: use it as a temparary road block to gain a good lead.

3: use it to block wepons. I have saved my skin twice in the same number of matches by doing this. once the AI fired a barrage of R-Gernades at me, I fired two iceballs to stop them, and the splash damage killed him.

2nd time I used it to stop a BUNCH of missiles coming at me.

First five takers get to test it out. usual meathod, post you addy or e-mail to A2597@atlantic.net

I'm actually finding this thing more useful then the plasma sheild!
#1: you can still frag a person thats inside the ice, because there is almost always a *little* bit of the tank exposed

#2: I've blocked ALOT of weapons coming at me, once I figured out how, I'm doing it all the time! it's great to see so many AI's blow themselfs up! LOL!

#3: It just plain LOOKS cool! and AFAIK, I'm the first to use the Gib meshes in a weapon! hehe.

Now that is coool! (ice humor)

Great for blocking incoming rounds!

I have only tested for a few minutes but I like what I see so far. And I like the mesh. Maybe make a whiter texture since it's an ice cannon.

[Edit]
Whiter texture on the cannon itself.

OK then, I'm the first to use them in a weapon AND the first to release the weapon using them.

Well, I think it's ready for release..
only questions I have for you guys are:

1: The amount of ammo? higher? Lower? just right? I'm thinking five ammo would not be bad...

2: Amount of damage? I have it set to 50.0 in the ent, but thats only if your DEAD center in the ice, when I got hit it took me to 60%, then 20, and then a tank gun killed me.

those are the main things...
Working on a new texture!

Cool Weapon - ammo at 5 would be great. Projectiles seem to be self seeking to a large extent - which is good. There is little to no reload time which makes it fun to shoot this off at everyone. Great Job.

Hey A'
When u update the weapon, texture and number of shots, etc, send me (and testers) an update. And now that you are fine tuning, set the weight normal so we can see how it works in normal game play.
