Chaingun cannon
If the 2001 video is anything to go on it seems Duke will have a badass assault rifle in DNF, which I think is awesome. However, I would like the tripple barreled monstrocity Duke packed in Duke 3D to return as some kind of heavy machine gun or something like that. Maybe like the chaingun in Quake II in that it can fell the toughest foes in seconds but chews through ammo like nobody's business. What do you guys think?

A chaingun would be an effective, non-explosive gibbing weapon.

While we're on the topic of weapons what else do we want to see? I loved the devastator and think it's a vital Duke weapon although i can imagine some significant frame rate drop whilst launching 4 rockets roughly every second in a modified unreal 2.5 engine. Also, although it's a FPS cliche now I like the idea of finding pieces of an uber powerful alien weapon as you advance through the game. It encourages exploration and greatly rewards it.

A minigun is unrealistic anyway! It is not meant to be used by one man. You can fix it on a helicopter and the like. Don't believe everything you see in films.

I know! And that's why I answered this way to a comment about recoil. Because it is unrealistic anyway.

We don't?? Ah, And I was just hoping for DNF to do a summersault while shooting at all the enemies at the (or so it appears) all the enemies at the same time while scratching is ass and opening some new gum.
