I also think Needle Gun should be re-named to Coil Gun. 'Needle' just sounds too weak.

By the way: Is there any chance the sound for laser-based weapons might get changed? This "chiuwm"-like noise is what people are used to from SciFi movies, what probably is the reason it is employed in WZ. But I could easily record the real life rattling sound of a laser, since my sister works in chemical research an deals with high energy lasers on a daily basis. Well, of course it is not the laser making any sound really, but rather the discharging capacitors. Or might this lead to players mistaking laser sound for machine-gun fire?

Well, Warzone lasers are silent. The sound you hear are just the game alerting you to the fact that a laser is being fired.

If you have better "stereotypical laser" sounds, by all means, upload them.

on the subject of "needle guns" needle guns in warzone AREN'T needle guns AT ALL
a needle gun is a flachette based weapon not a gauss light cannon
Return to your designated zone or be destroyed. You are in contravention of the new paradigm.
