Well, do yourself a favor and force yourself to use the biorifle as often as possible for a few hours of playing. It pays to know how to use every weapon effectively, and the biorifle can be very effective (In UT, the only weapon that I was never able to use well was the ripper...that gun just sucked...).

My brother always got a headshot on me with that stupid thing, and I never figured out how...
I hated that thing.

I always got a headshot on myself with that weapon :P

The only time that I saw that weapon used effectively was in capture the flag, where the opposing team just lathered us with those ricocheting shots...couldn't defend the flag easily when the opponent could kill all defenders from around the corner. I don't miss that in the least.

In theory, however, the secondary fire was excellent for knocking opponents around. I just never got around to using it for that.

I think the coolest thing I have done in UT2k3 to date was getting a Mega Kill with the assault rifle...

Still, it was a 20-person DM in Asbestos...

Yeah, I did that yesterday in an instagib bombing run game. Score: 14 to 14. We had about 20 players total on the server, and wow was it fun! Don't remember who won, though...

althoguh having played this online a few times now i can safley say im VERY impressed... its slicker than the origional UT... and the weapons seem a little more balanced

i cant wait!
I agree that the game is much more balanced than the first UT and the action is very fluid. I haven't played a fact action game like this in a while so it has taken me a while to get used to the fast pace again.
