Just to answer part of your question, there are ammo spawns in the way of the re-spawning smart gun itself...if you hang around long enough, it respawns and you get ammo from walking over it and if you haven't used up all your previous ammo I believe you can build it up to about 100 in the gun and an extra 250 ammo in extra magazines...this is what I found on a survivor map anyway, picked it up and already had like 350 ammo (100 in gun and 250 extra).
I do wish they had done the sound better, I still have many fond memories of it from AVP1....this iteration does not remind me of it at all or pay homage to the movie. And I also don't understand seeing silhouetted enemies through walls and obstacles??
Hey Valheru, Thanks for the response. That is one long wait for a gun respawn it has to be over 3 minutes in regular mp I have the PC game. I have never seen the gun respawn in survivor after you pic it up. I spawned right near the gun when the match started. It was a 15 min match MTDM. I had the gun for a good 3 minutes on ruins no one was on that side for a while. Finally I was attacked and killed, I spawned ran to the area and still had to wait for it to spawn. When it finally did there was 11 minutes left to the match. That's a long time when you compare it pulse rifle, ammo is 30 second respawn and I feel the smart gun isn't more power then the pulse rifle at all.
After testing I found no two weapon spawns where the same(how that was i don't know). I did get an average of 4 minutes for the smart gun. I found that the pulse rifle required less ammo to kill an alien or predator in the body then the smartgun. These tests where at stationary targets, It took 7 to 10 rounds from the pulse rifle to kill and alien 15 to 20 to kill a Predator. With auto tracking on or off i found that it took 15 to 20 rounds to kill an alien and 20 to 25 rounds for a predator. Burst shooting the weapon didn't do anything in my tests.
Maybe I need to clarify and reword my questions to Rebellion.
A few questions to ask rebellion?
Why isn't the smartgun not like the movie. It feels more like a Gatling gun sounds like it too.
Why is the smartgun doing less damage then the pulse rifle?
Why does it require more rounds to kill then the Pulse rifle?
Why does it take almost 4 minutes to respawn?
Why isn't the smartguns mag bigger? If it does less damage and has a longer ammo respawn why the low ammo?
