View Full Version : Secondary fire for all weapons...

02-09-2002, 03:48 PM
I'm listening to the XGR interview part 2 and at one point (3:30) this is a direct quote...

"I think we have oh... four new weapons. And with every weapon, we also have both a primary and a secondary fire, and that sort of changes the functionality quite a bit."
-Brett Tosti

Secondary for all weapons. Including the Bryar, and Stormie?

Yup. The STRifle has a semi-auto and rapid fire modes, and I think the Bryar has normal for primary and allows you to charge you shots (like the Blastec in MOTS).

Some weapons even have a THIRD Fire mode, mostly charge variants of the primary fire modes

Oops... I forgot about that...

Really...how would this third fire mode be implemented? A third button? Seems like that might get akward. Or maybe I'm just old fasioned in my thinking, but that would be odd, since I'm still in my teens.

Maybe it'll be third mouse button, or holding both mouse buttons down at the same time, who knows, but I heard it from an official source:

"In fact, Tosti was quick to point out that every weapon in Jedi Outcast has both a primary and an alternate attack. Some weapons even have a third firing option, usually a charged variant of its primary attack."

I think the third attack is somthing like, Hold down the fire key and let go once it's charges. I don't think it's actual new button. We already have force powers, doging, movment and other keys so I don' t think they will add another.

MOUSE BUTTONS!!!! please tell me that you don't use the mouse for standard game play but only for "snipeing"

But what if you want to hold down the fire button for a weapon like the storm trooper rifle or repeater?

most likely they would only have two functions...

Exactly ACDC, that or the game would freeze and tell you your mama's fat. I dunno.

BUT.. will we still be able to shave with the lightsaber, and will we be able to light cigars with them, and blow smoke off the top of the barrel of our blasters and say some witty one-liners in multiplayer?

We can only hope!
