Where's the Repair Gun?

Section: 

Well, next week is the week, isn't it? We've pretty much milked as much enjoyment as we can out of the demo by now. Just as we start passing up the UT2K4 icon on our desktops for something else, the full-on game is about to drop. Just remember, gentlemen, not everyone who buys the full version will have ever played the demo. You can expect some newbs (that's what the kids call them these days, right?) to show up on your servers. Be patient with them, please. It was only a few weeks ago you were getting your mantas caught in the trees and what-not. Set a good example, answer a few duh questions, and before long you'll probably have a useful teammate. After all, if Atari is going to market it like a sports game with its "2004" suffix, we should have the right to make it our national pastime.IL Comic

On the flipside, there's people who think shooting you or your node with any old weapon will help. I can't count the times I've had jackasses in Mantas shoot our node and make that annoying "Buzzer" noise.

I think he shot you because everything is black and white.

My solution?

Just go and stand behind the dummies who're constructing a node (that's if they even do that) and then let rip with the link gun alt-fire. They can't complain if they can't see you.

Sometimes that can be funny as hell. Most of the time you just want to slap them though.

Unfortunately, patience is usualy considered firstly as a privilege to be given and lastly as a virtue to be nurtured, which is a bit upside-down in my oppinion. Nasty world.

Don't do that because then they will wonder why sometimes they build a node faster than other times, haha

I was on one server where a guy named "Player" ran around for a good 3 onlaughts shooting only his teammantes. After a while I got to the point where I just stopped and looked at him while he shot me. After a while he must have gotten embarassed and left for a server with friendly fire damage turned on.

Here's a good link for anyone new to the game.

I like watching people try to heal the power core.
