What was that weapon?

Post by eyestrain92 » 08 Apr 2007, 21:28

I remember playing WZ to the last level on my playstation, and attacking right? Well right as soon as I enter the base, I'm being barraged by fireballs (Not arty shells) that are tearing my units to pieces. I eventually find the weapon but cannot research, build or identify it. Can someone clarify what this is, or if it still exsists in the comp version?

That was Nexus' plasma cannon bunker. It's not available to build unless you use the cheats (the ones that require you to use a second pad.)

I wonder what the code was like for that mess... after all there are two Plasma Cannons in WZ, but the playable one is actually more like a horrendously oversized and overpowered flamethrower, the unplayable Nexus one an uber-version of the Incendiary Howie.

you can have a map maker put some in map for you - or you can make your own map and place them inside...keeping in mind that that cannon can only be used on a full 250 by 250 map  - as its coverage is just about 3/4 of the map.

‎"to prepare for disaster is to invite it, to not prepare for disaster is a fools choice" -me (kim-lav_coyote25-metcalfe) - it used to be attributed to unknown - but adding the last bit , it now makes sense.
