ugh..already even with the bugged down shock rifle people still refer to it as cheap shock *****. i kill some people with it and they already start to cry about. the best one is, maybe you will use a weapon that takes real skill. **** if they had any skill they would use the shock rifle too, in the new ut2k3 i think it's one of the hardest weapons to use next to the biorifle and sniper.

I learned to ignore them in UT too. If it's such an easy weapon to get those kills with in either game, they'll use it too. There's nothing stopping them.

And after all, it's nothing like the people that go around spawn killing and type killing. So don't worry about the lamers that complain so much.

I think the biorifle's pretty cool. I mean, once you know how to use it, it's incredibly effective. I just don't enjoy using it all that much.

That is, when I pick up the biorifle, I immediately think, "Hrm, okay, I guess it's time to get a couple of quick, easy kills before I pick up a weapon I enjoy using..."

I mean, I can really kick some ass with it, I just don't like to use it as much for some reason...

I tend to charge it, and launch one straight into their chest...and they die.

Yeah, a fully-charged secondary blast is pretty much always an instant kill.

Another nice thing to do is when a player continues to dodge around in a relatively small area (which is not uncommon in the least), just shoot the floor that they're continually running back and forth over...usually doesn't take long.

That is, somewhat similar to the rocket launcher, the best strategy is not to hit the opponent, but surfaces near him/her.
