If you guys have met the same bunch of crazy transhumans that make up the Sentinel core as me than you know how much some of those dudes love their guns. Don't get me wrong I'm partial to some violent impulses myself but some of the nut jobs I've seen... there was a guy I worked with outside Olympus who cornered me during a mission. Firstly, their where in a Reaper, which I just don't get at all, and secondly they where trying to tell me how to hack a plasma rifle to get it burning hotter because (and this is the crazy part) they thought it didn't go enough damage. I've seen those thing immoliate synths into slag with one bletch and this death seeking tank rider wanted to destablize the reaction to get more out of one. Anyway I've wandered away from my point. Gun nuts aside I'm curious what everyone else brings to the table during a job. With all the firearms and devices you can pull fresh out of maker we've go just about everything we could ask for... and yet I see people come back to the same old things, even when something else might work better. What is that? Sentimentality? Dealing with limitations in training? I'm as guilty as anybody, I guess. I haven't picked up a chemical propelled gun in years. Haven't even fired the railgun in awhile either, not since I started working with a freezer (I love that thing). So, what do you pull out of that carrying case when the bullet start flying: what you need or what you want?
