Favourite Pistol to spawn with?

Post by Wolfhaw33 » Mon Mar 04, 2013 8:28 pm

My favourite is the 1911 because it seems balanced, i find the glock to weak and i hate reloading the sw. Whats you guys favourite?

The Glock is clearly the superior weapon. The guns don't do different amounts of damage, you either hit a vital part of the enemy robot or you don't. The Glock holds the most rounds and is the easiest to operate.

But I still prefer the 1911 because it looks nicer. It's a classic, like Aviator sunglasses or the Coca Cola bottle. And the fact that it's more difficult to operate actually makes it more enjoyable, for the same reason that car enthusiasts prefer manual gearboxes over automatic ones.

They don't do different damage? I guess I just have horrible aim with the glock then, because when ever i shoot it it takes way more shots than the 1911.

There are no hitpoints and damage numbers in Receiver. You either hit it and then it's destroyed or you don't. The key is hitting the vital components, preferably the battery. That'll shut down the enemy completely.

I could swear you could shoot the drone bodies and they'd start flying less stably, but maybe I'm just going crazy.

Well the bullet impact actually physically affects them and they wobble around a bit as they try to maintain balance but eventually they stabilize again.

Oh. Well I guess I haven't stuck around long enough to see them stop wobbling (assuming it takes longer than 5 seconds?)

I think it's just so badass looking to reload a revolver.

I'm a huge fan of the revolver. It's actually easier for me to reload and forces me to be mindful of my ammunition.

In before "reloading during battle gives me a rush".

Same here. I always love to eject all the bullets out, insert the new ones and spin it like a badass.

Yeah that's my favorite part. Now only if they can add smoke after you shoot 8) .
That would make me feel so badass I would so much stupid shit that I normally wouldn't do.

Just played receiver for the first time. Add me to the list of the revolver-lovers. :D

I like the revolver. It has nice iron sights and it's almost too easy to use.

Tough one, but I think I like the 1911 the best. It has the most moving pieces I guess and that gets my vote. Also, it seems to have the hardest starts. I've had plenty of 1911 starts with no clips and two or three rounds of ammunition. The Glock and revolver rarely have 'mean' starts comparatively.

Guns don't smoke that much.. unless you're firing some old percussion rifle, and there's 10 of you firing at once.
