    Are you really surprised?

However this lead to people switching to the HB when they met, both trying to chop the others heads off and not fight. Seeing as the whole point of the HB was to get INTO the action and not be used in the action itself, they scrapped this idea.

    However as Boksha just reminded me, i think the grapple beam can be used to saber people in two.
    You guessed right, I hadn't paid it close attention. Only because I could care less. I started this thread for the reason stated above...

    I agree it should not be a weapon but I think you should be able to fire off it.

    DRIVE BY FOOL!

    (If it was used as a weapon however lol it would be funny to see somone *SKATE _ JUMP OFF_ THEN the skate board goes into the persons body :0

    IIRC some Epic guy already said most of the offensive capabilities of the board have been removed.
    But, to be more plausible, I hope that, when I'll hit (while on the hoverboard) someone on foot, at least both fall and loose 1 health point.

    No offense but please no. Thats just one big bad idea!

    We have enough weapons!

    Well what comes to my mind is if it only takes one hit from any weapon to knock someone off his board and after falling off your board you are vulnerable because it takes a while to get back on your feet. Wouldn’t it take quit a bit of skill to actually pull of a decapitation with a hoverboard? You would either have to take your opponent by total surprise or have mad hoverboard skills to dodge the incoming fire.

    Mark Rein did actually say that in an interview recently, that they got rid of that, over at gametrailers.com, think the interview was originally at 1up.com but i thought they might have changed their minds or something.... but i can still see it being a mutator later, so if ppl want to chop pplz heads off, they at least could have the option to turn in on i suppose.

    Hoover board shouldn't be a weapon. I think they ripped the idea from Jak 3 which made really good use of the hoover board since it had very large open areas and and similarly to Jak 3 in UT3 you can simply get off the hooverboard quickly and select a weapon...

    I've heard mention of it, iron, but maybe not from official sources.

    First thing I'm going to do in UT3 is make Ninja Turtle models, then put them on hoverboards and have them skate up a river doing stunts and add the sewer level music from TMNT on Super Nintendo.

    WHO'S WITH ME?!
