View Full Version : fast fire

Does any body else notice the insane rate of fire of the gun weapons. The stormie rifle fires about twice as fast as the one in JK1, and the bowcaster when loading up the shots this goes about 4-5 times faster than in JK1. Does any body think this is bad or what. Im not sure yet, i will wait until i get JK2:JO then I will formulate my opinion.:confused:

The newer fire rates are much more like the real SW weapons.

It depends on the accuracy of the weapons. From what I have seen, most of the weapons are fairly accurate, so in SP/MP, we would have to do more running around and dodging.

real starwars weapons? isnt that impossible? Well, unless it all really did happen a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away!!!!

In ROTJ, Chewie's bowcaster has a good repeat rate...

Of course, you also need faster repeating guns to get past a Lightsaber... Could be part of the guns/saber balance.

Remember, according to the (pre)views, stormie rifle has secondary fire rapid fire (automatic) and primary fire semi-auto (one shot per trigger pull I believe)

I see... Thats why the rifle has a fast fire rate, Secondry Fire!

Now that secondary firing mode is as fast as it used to be in DF(especially ST rifle) and correct me if I'm wrong, but I also remember guns having now third firing mode which is basically mix of primary and secondary.

some weapons have a third mode, that is a charged up version of the first one I think

Yeah, I think a faster rate of fire would help balance the game out a bit in MP, so a lightsaber wouldn't be insanely dominant.

I wonder if the powerboost will still be around... if not, I'll miss firing at 2x w/ half the ammo-consumption. ; )
