Frag this- give us an exclusive skin for the Xenos! This "S.H.A.R.P" rifle will no doubt suck, due to lag in-game, just like Mass Effect 3's Kishock Harpoon gun.  :)

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of them taking little mentions and expanding them like the Ball Breakers but I think this is going a little far if they're actually trying to imply this is what Hudson meant. That said, it does seem like a cool little rifle. Just not sure how well it fits in with the universe.

I think it's fairly obvious that "sharp sticks" was not intended to be slang for some form of high tech weaponry. They were already stretching it with the sonic electronic ball breakers. That worked out well, this new rifle not so much.

At least it sounds fun to use.  :)

"We got knives and sharp sticks" was not intended to be a reference to high tech weaponry, it was a show of bravado.

I hope James Cameron has remained at least proud enough of this film to punch Randy Pitchford in the face next time he mentions cannon and Aliens in the same sentence.

Gearbox you god damn morons!!!! How could you screw up such a simple idea so spectacularly?

"Dude, you know what this game could do with?"
"What?"
"Some Predators..."
"I know, I know! But... Look, I know it's tempting, but..."
"And one of those... Combistick things... Dude, those were awwwesome!"
"Is 'combistick' even a real word? Don't normal people just call those 'spears'?"
"Shut up! I want one! Let's... I know! We'll give the Marines one!"
"Well... Heh... I dunno', how would we get away with-"
"We'll make it look like a gun!"
"A gun which fires sticks?"
"Uhh... It'll be a big gun!"
"Could it look... Chunky? Like a brick. Chunky is futuristic."
"You couldn't even lift this thing up!"
"Yeah! Let's do it!"

It doesn't. Its like to use a crossbow in a present day battle scenario. This gun will be either very op or totally useless. How some slow metal bolts firing weapon can be good in fight in close quarters is beyond me. And I can bet that GBX made it one shot kill weapon to compensate the slow rate of fire.

Good thing Hudson didn't mention rocks in his speech; Gearbox would probably take it to mean grenades. :D

I do like this rifle though. Might be fun in single player sniping bad WY guys, or whatever.

Did nobody read the blurb?
It's not just a spear gun,
Quote
Pre-order and get "The S.H.A.R.P. Rifle"
Customers who pre-order Aliens: Colonial Marines will receive "The S.H.A.R.P. Rifle" free. As referenced by Hudson in Aliens™ the prototype sonic-harpoon artillery remote projectile (S.H.A.R.P.) rifle fires time-delayed, explosive-tipped darts that embed themselves into enemies or terrain. This offer applies to all existing pre-orders. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time
It's like a torque bow, still pretty silly but c'mon we went there as soon as Hadley's hope survived.

If you pre order a Gearbox product you will only have yourself to blame. I have paid for 3 Gearbox games in my life and they all sucked and were a waste of money. >:(
