    How do you guys feel about there now being laser guns instead of bullets, I personally don't like lasers because it doesn't feel epic, and like your fighting in an actual war when your fighting with one. WFC had some I know but, there were very little guns that fired them, now in foc their everywhere, so how do you guys feel about this?

    Yeah lasers are kinda boring at this point. A decent mix would be nice, with more epic laser effects like fireballs, big electric sparking laser beams and stuff, but just "pew pew" has me meh.

    I find it difficult to believe a species capable of interstellar flight would still use something as arcane as bullets.

    so long as they look pretty and sound good that's all that matters.

    Me too. There are plenty of ways sound can be implemented to make the discharge effect be just as grand. Coupled with the look and feed back, they could be amazing.

    As long as its just for some weapons. I'd like bullets, energy spheres, and grenades to be coming out of my gun sometimes.

    I can live with one laser weopon but to change them all would ruin the diversity.

    I'd also like that one laser to sound like the generic G1 sound and have that weird flash where it starts out crooked then goes straight. Total nostalgia boner KTHNX.

    Particle beams. When you think about it, lasers just don't work as portrayed in sci-fi.

    I don't really care myself I can't even see the shot I'm too busy paying attention to dodging other assholes raining fire on me to pay attention to the effects.

    By the same token lasers are pretty useless compared to kinetic weaponry, but I totally agree if you mean stuff like charged particle-based weaponry.

    No way grenades, look at the Frag Launcher, sure it's fun but it makes anyone you kill it with think of you as a lazy and cheap prick.
