Things you find weird about the game.
You know, the world of Cortex Command is a very, VERY strange place sometimes.

Like.. Do Browncoat heavies have heads of any sort? I noticed that their selection icon has a very weird picture of sorts.. And, even more so, their mask rarely comes off. I think the one time it did, It looked like his head was gone... Kinda like in the icon. Which raises questions...

Also, does anyone ever wonder why things like blood and oil are somehow able to pile up in the world of CC rather than soak into the ground? What comes out of humans anyways, let alone robots?

Also, if most of the weapons of the "Space Vikings" comes from somewhere between the 1940s to 2000s... Where did the chainsaw bazooka come from?

That's just a few odd things. What things do you find weird in the game?

I found it weird that these people mastered interstellar flight but can't stand up and walk from place to place without falling on themselves. Maybe their muscles atrophied during the voyage?

Well, Browncoat heavies have very resilent heads and can survive a lot of headshots comapring to other actors. And, yea, appearently they can fight without heads, too!

Blood and oil and also bullets stack up due to how the game engine works... see, one blood drop is one pixel. Ussually it accelerates enough to be able to "destroy" the lower levels of blood. Sometimes it doesn't and things just stuck up! If the blood would have higher mass/sharpmess, you could pretty much melt walls with your blood!
Oh, and robots "bleed" oil and tinny scrap pieces, judging by how those particles and gibs are called.

Chainsaw Bazooka came from Gmod, altrough modders of it could have been inspired by antoher game with one of those too. Ronin have a lot of classic "badass" weapons, like AK47 or Tommyguns. What surprises me, how did they actually manage to get this... did they rob a weapons museum or something?!

Pasatafarian, I assume the human muscles are alright, but, you know, you control units on the distance and they're pretty much brainless machines, acording to lore even Ronin humans have most of their brain supressed. So probably the brain control is... imperfect.

Does anybody else feel like the Ronin are underpowered in this game? Whenever I play them the other factions just swarm me, whereas when I play browncoats I never get attacked... ever.

Ronin? Try Dummies. They may be fast and able to handle falls better than most, but most factions use bullet based weapons.. And they are weak to bullets.. Which means combat is very hard with them under your command.

Ronin are fairly powerful, even if they lack body armor. With weapons like the RPG and M60, they can do a fair bit of damage.

I found it wierd how most units can take some serious punishment trought bullets but as son as they fell over and get hit at the head they take some serious dmg i mean when i make a small jetpack jump and my dude just do a barrel roll and falls on his face he take like 20 dmg

But dummies got reliable long-range weapons with high accuracy! That somewhat balances their weakness...

I still wonder to this day how soldiers get their ammunition. Teleports?
