    lol apparently we're getting a slime gun, and a faction changing gun for fall of cybertron, as said by Matt Tieger himself in this exclusive interview for some polish website...

    I presume it just makes them turn into an ally and start shooting there original side. I have no idea if this gun would be incorporated into multiplayer though, I cant see it working there... lol

    The faction changing gun might be just like the disguise ability (spelling fail)

    But if its a gun, that means your going to be shooting it at other enemys. Meaning that it would be stupid and confusing just to make the enemys look like there yours...

    Faction Changing gun?

    That sounds... incredibly stupid. Either it over-rides their personality completely which makes no sense, or it literally just changes their faction, which means nothing because how would that effect them at all aside from having to visit the detailer later?

    Absolutely:

    "Oh hey, it's a Destroyer!"
    "Don't worry, I have this."
    *Uses the gun to turn the destroyer to their side, and the massive warrior crushes the smaller foes.*
    "LOL!"

    Anyone remember the comic, International Incident? At the beginning, SS has declared himself keeper of the matrix and he visits bombshell who is finishing a device that overrides any Cybertronian's autonomous systems and makes them a mindless soldier. Maybe that's where this comes from

    That's a good example of why it shouldn't be used.

    Meh, I doubt they'd let you use such a weapon on the stronger enemies. Chances are, it'd just catch a drone to be used as a decoy or something.

    more like its based of your characters class and can only control equal or lower ranking opponents

    but the bombshell reference makes perfect sense

    I imagine it wouldn't be quite so broken as that, I concieved a faction changing hypnotic ability for Mindwipe, and kept it fun but fair by suggesting that it only succeeds in reprogramming the victim if the damage it does (which is minimal) exceeds their remaining vitality - basically you have to almost destroy your target before you can turn it.

    As for the Slime Gun, its a long shot but it'd be nice if that meant that Blot and the rest of the Terrorcons were in - plot wise, it'd be easy to introduce them as Decepticon convicts who were the subjects of Shockwaves early experiments in organic based alt modes, which of course didn't go particularly well and left them as insane, drooling monsters.

    I wonder if its a systems scrambler, turning the targeted into a berserker on the battlefiled.

    I more curious about the slime gun? Is something out of Ghostbusters or what?

    Yeah, probably. Still, one can dream for their own Destroyer :D 

    Oh wow! Great idea :D

    The game sounds good and everything but I just hope they don;t go overboard with to many ideas. I just hope I can take the game seriously when its released, rather than a small kids game with guns that sound rather childish.

    EDIT: Heres the gameplay from utube

    If this were a ghostbusters game the slime gun would make sense, in this game the slime gun seems really out of place and weird.

    Maybe it's simular to Saints row the Third RC gun. You can control your enemies but the further they get the signal dies out or is's only for a short ammount of time.

    I'm guessing Bombshell or "Hardshell" as he's been named recently will use the faction changing gun if he is a playable character. Named Insecticons were confirmed in the TFW press release.
