Originally posted by Uncle Kulikov:Advantages:Large Ammunition Capacity. It's got the fuel to last you through the whole mission. Pulse the trigger for maximum efficiency.Area of effect: easy to hit with, crowd control, efficient at hitting small or fast targets (parasites and the flying ones)Ignition: can also damage multiple enemies per light. Therefore excellent when you are outnumbered, which is always. Stuns and slows whatever is hit, while damaging it. 1 light is enough to kill the drones on normal.Disadvantages:short rangepotential for friendly FIRE. Get it?I give it to my Medic.
