Besides the light saber, I personally want to see the concussion rifle again. I enjoyed it because it's great from afar and still can be used when the enemy is close thanks to its second fire.

Most definitely the CR. Great weapon. The mines/sequence charges were fun for SP, but had little use in MP, unless you were dropping them down a pool. I liked the fact that they stuck to the walls.

I want the repeater to come back.......I loved the stormtroopers with those weapons and eventually it became my favourite weapon :D

I actually thought that the sequence charges had little use in SP. However, if I was low on health and on the run in MP, I'd hide them (behind crates, inside elevators) so when someone walked by, they'd get a nice surprise. But whenever my trusty saber couldn't do the job, I'd break out the Concussion rifle.

I loved the concussion rifle the most out of those. Since it used power cells, rail charges weren't necessary. That was probably the best part. Also, the repeater rifle would be next on my list, because of its incredible accuracy. I did sniping without a zoom scope with the repeater when I didn't have the scope.

IMO you should really change the poll options to the Rail Detonator, and the Concussion Rifle, since its been confirmed that all the rest are already in the game.

^Alot of people would like to see the concussion rifle return :)

slowbie, I thought of that, but it figured this would be more fun. Even if the others are confirmed, it doesn't mean that people do/don't want to see it in JO. So after hours of debating the issue with myself (ok, 30 seconds) I went with what it is now.

I would like the all mighty concussion rifle to come back personally... loved that weapon in both Dark Forces and Jedi Knight. It's just a great weapon!

I want a thermal detonator in my hand. I'm sorry, but that screenshot with the termal det explosion is incredible. I want to open a door, toss one in, close the door, wait 3 seconds, BOOM, open the door, pick up the weapons. hehe.

Personally I think that the greatest thing about the conc was the secondary fire. Sure, it wouldn't be great with ONLY that fire, but how many explosive weapons do you know that you can use almost as well point blank?

The CR was the most powerful weapon, but I felt it a little overpowered myself. Personally I am more than happy to see it go.

^CR???Captain Rave.....indeed I am powerful, more powerful than you can possibly imagine, more stupid aswell :wstupid:



I want to see the lightsaber return :)

i just thought it was a bit TOO powerful, but maybe i just wasnt l337 enough for it :)

Sequencer charges were such a fun and satisfying weapon to use. I'm really going to miss it..

Though I can see it being added in a future patch or expansion (like with Quake2 and 3's expansions).

They could add a mine-type weapon in with an MP class system, etc. That'd be awesome. I'm already looking ahead pretty far, but imagine JK2 with a MotS-worthy bevy of new options and stuff!

It's true, I rarely used them in SP except when I wanted to get some creative kills, or I was too low on health to take out that AT ST with my saber or something. Nothing leaving a big stack of them in a nice bottleneck where a bunch of stormies were passing through..

I also liked how the use of mines was not unbalancing, because you could use the force to detect or avoid them.

Skin-wise I think we should have a "best of" collection, of characters from the entire Dark Forces series, and maybe from Obi-Wan as well (back when it was going to be a PC game).

But I digress...

I want to see the new Crossbow, the one from JK didn't look good at all, the new one is sweeeeet.

repeater, it could fire most quickly, and although it eats up ammo I would switch between it and the SR.

Good news, Kurgan, you won't have to miss them...one of the confirmed new weapons will be "trip mines" :D :D :D

Oh yeah! I'd completely forgotten those... thanks for reminding us about them, Redwing! :thumbsup:

I've been hoping for mines for quite a while... now it seems we'll have them... good :)

I guess I'm not going to poll because I have mixed reactions for different weapons.
However,the weapons I'd most probably like back are the:
1.Rail Detonator
Launching the rail charge to the bartender was such a great thing to do to justify to his 'Get out of my bar,you always cause trouble' theme.

2.Imperial Repeater
This is the gun I'd probably like just to get the job done.You actually only need a repeater to complete one whole level.Other than possessing the ability to shoot fast,it also won't kill you when you load at a wall with a RD or a CR.

3.Concusion Rifle
I have mixed feelings about this weapon.This weapon,is slightly overused in MP,and besides that,it's ugly.Those are the bad points.The good points,are as similar to the IR,is that it could get the job done.One shoot and your enemy wilt die.


The weapon I'd REALLY like NOT to come back are the detonator packs.I HATE them.Remember Lv.6?Whenever I pass a corner,suddenly-teet teet teet-BOOM!,and after about 2-3 times,Kyle will go 'Eeeewwwwwyyyyyyllllllroarg!!!!!!!'

Well, just so everyone knows: Of the weapons posted in this poll (Pistol, Storm Trooper rifle, Thermal detonators, Crossbow, Repeater, Rail detonator, Sequence charges and Concussion rifle) only two (the Rail detonator and Concussion rifle) have not been confirmed as returning in some form or another.

dude, for those of you who hate the conc rifle because it couldn't be block get Spork, aka ...... rats forgot, it makes it blockable

JPMaximilian
02-11-2002, 03:26 PM
We all know what the weapons are going to be anyway, but I think I'd like to see the Bryar Pistol, but only if they improved it so that there is a reason to use it. It looks really cool in the JK cut scenes.

Dan12R

I love the sequence charges. It was great in MP when you don't have much health and need to run. It's cowardly, yes, but it's a nice twist to the game. And if the CR and RD aren't confirmed, what's going to be our room clearer in this game???

SidMyre
02-11-2002, 04:10 PM
No question about it, and of course Sequence charges

JaG|Kaiser
02-11-2002, 04:12 PM
RD or CR. I wish both of these would make a comeback. Sequence charges had little MP value, but were fun to use, regardless.

how can something be cowardly in a video game?????????????? :confused:

I read a preview at IGN I believe where they confirmed a missle/rocket launcher with multiple firing modes.

I wonder if this "bazooka" will be more like CR or RD?

Dan12R
02-11-2002, 05:09 PM
touche Tomcat. And the whole comment on being cowardly is just that I've seen some who would rather run than see another take them out. That's what I was refering to.

Conc rifle here, its a classic weapon from both DF and JK.

It would be cool as a secret weapon in single player to get the assault rifle from dark forces. (the one that fired the blue plasma blasts and secondary fire was the missle thing) :clone:

It was nice to lead other guys

I'm gonna get jumped on for this... I liked the pistol. The time when I started liking it was with SBX with its JK2 style yellow bolts and aiming animations. It's more acurate than the ST rifle and packs a little more of a punch. And it's just so great to shoot a stormy with it from afar in a MP coop map (AI trench wars) to show off how good a shot you are.

Dark Malice
02-12-2002, 02:29 PM
Definitely the conc.

Nothing quite as satisfying as blasting somebody from across the level with a big blue bolt of energy.;)

One thing we don't want are the peeps who just go around on force speed dropping mines at your feet... incredibly annoying.

CaptainRAVE
02-12-2002, 02:46 PM
I remember doing that all the time, but this time the lightsaber sounds so amazing I'll just be using that :D.........it'll be much easier to complete the game with just that this time :)

Dan12R
02-12-2002, 02:54 PM
Actually, I can't wait to see how the light saber will work in this. One of the main things that attracvted me to JK was the light saber.

Carbonite gun rocked in KFY just run around and if you meet anyone freeze em.

Dan12R
02-13-2002, 03:28 PM
I didn't think of the carbonite gun. Probably because I never use it because it has like no range.
