    [Weapon] Velocity Trap Gun (Beta)

    This weapon is intended for team play. When its beam hits another player, it slows their movement speed to a crawl, making them a sitting duck for your team mate.

    This gun has two drawbacks to balance play: It does not limit the victim's ability to turn, so they can get revenge on you. Second, it does no actual damage. This means you must coordinate the use of this weapon with another person using a conventional weapon.

    Nice idea, at 800kb not bad at all....

      What's really sad is most of that 800k is the texture!

        If would make a separate pack for the textures as UTX and compress them as DDS it would save you alot of kilobytes..........just reference your code to call the texture from the UTX.....

          This weapon should have been in the game out of the box. It's too bad Epic or DE never thought about it. It is way more functional and practiacal for team games like BR, CTF, and DDom than the Link gun nobody evry links with...

          Especially with the way Speed affects CTF and BR, this gun would be the balancing key!

          Can't wait to try it out.

            Is it a replacement weapon or is it added to the arsenal?

              It has its own mutator to replace one regular weapon, and it is compatible with the SwitchArsenal mutator.

                Well, it is DXT5 compressed... 1024x1024 skin is 1.3 megabytes.

                I going to see what it looks like in DXT1, because it's half the size then.

                I want to add some extras (ammo options, mostly) before I release another version. That one will use a DXT1 instead of DXT5 texture.

                Oh yeah, don't forget to provide some feedback. Tell me what you think would make this weapon mod better.

                      I suggest making sure bots know how to use the weapon.

                        I would really like to test it on my server BUT I prefer small sized mutators because the dowload don't scare people away.

                            Oh yeah, one of those things I still have to work on, the bots... they're pretty stupid with it.

                              If anyone knows someone who would could alter the link gun so one piece of it uses a different texture, then I could make the file a whole lot smaller...
