    Maybe a "Link activated" announcement. Not a announcer voice, but some sort of sedate internal system alert, like the suit in HL1. This might clue people into the fact that the link is an actual part of the plan, and make them wonder what it does.

      There are visual clues in the HUD already.

      This is another case for having a mandatory tutorial before being allowed to play online as far as I'm concerned.

        One thing was that the bots never linked with me. After all there's nothing like haveing big yellow pulses coming out.

          Huh?

          You sure about that.

          Hal need some confirmation.

          Can't believe they would take away this feature.

            Moreso I can't believe they'd take out that functionality and still call it the linkgun.
            After all, the ability to link is the ONLY difference between the linkgun and the pulsegun.

              No i don't think so. Boksha is right it wouldn't be called the link gun if it couldn't link!

                i just wanna see the link guns shots go faster, they were so slow and easy to dodge in UT04, but were perfect in UT99

                  Actually I had less trouble dodging them in UT99 than in UT2k4.
                  But yes, they could do with a big speedboost, which judging from the movies is in.

                    Well, I hope the bots understand the linkgun, this time around. If I've got a Link, and a bot has one right next to me, when I start using it, I want some linkage! And an understanding of link-chaining would be appreciated, too.

                      yes there are visual and audio cues that you are "linked" but its still an underused feature but a really good one and another that makes UT stand out. hopefully itll be more used this time around and encouraged more somehow by the game... maybe an additional audio cue that actually says "Linked!" when you linkup with a teammate would be cool

                      and yeah, you should be required to play a tutorial before going online -or at least make it difficult to abort the t00t...

                        I think that, if the bots used it more (as in linking with players, and each other), people would get it faster.

                          It would also be nice if bots didn't try and link nodes/vehicles with the primary fire, n' then when that runs out, get out the flak cannon and start blasting thier own vehicle.

                            Yeah I think the bots would rather mess with your head. I see the link icon above the bots head and I see a link gun in the bots hand and approaching enemy fighters so I try to link to the bot and invariably the bot switches weapons and says “I’m on your team idiot”. Well no **** Sherlock. I was trying to link to you. And you wonder why the noobs think you’re trying to shoot them.

                            Yep I’ve seen this behavior by the bots many times. Bad programming or are they messing with our heads. Hmmmmmm……………I wonder

                              I've seen this behaviour in human players too... the bots are just programmed to be newbies... the most realistic bot AI ever!

                                I think they should also make primary fire on the linky more powerful aswell, 'cos when I play online I can empty about 100 ammo into the back of someones head and they just turn around and flak me
