The single most fun weapon in the history of video games and a veritable nostalgia machine for weirdos like me.
Easter egg included.
I still love the shock rifle and I am constantly amazed by all the different iterations it had over the years...
Glad to introduce you to it, then. As far as I know it has been in every UT game, but very few people notice what's painted on an explosive shell as it's hurtling towards your face.
This looks really good, and is indeed very nostalgic (although I'm more of a shock rifle man myself). Until you mentioned the Easter egg, I had no idea that was even a thing in the original game!
Thank you very much. I had several ideas for the weekly, but for some reason, I got a sudden pang of nostalgia. It was a close call between the Flak Cannon and the ASMD Shock Rifle, but I have always been a flak monkey...
I briefly considered spriting a spawner base for it or making it bob up and down, but that has been added in later titles, not the original Unreal Tournament.
Great choice and well pixelled! Brings back memories of 1999: countless hours playing UT and listening to the Matrix Soundtrack.
