    So with that mechari pic, I've noticed that the weapons don't have any firing mechanism on them, making me think that it reads electrical signals/muscle movesments for what type of attacks/abilities the weapon spews. I wonder if this would lead to medics in RP accidentally harming those they try to heal.

    Or they could be Smartgun linked to an IFF system that prevents you from accidentally harming a friend.

    I don't dislike the Medic weapons because they're too similar to Spellslinger guns, but I think they just look odd (based from the very limited amount of actual in-game screenshots, like 1 or 2). But I guess every type of weapon will have a big diversity in its design, just look at all the different types of Warrior swords we've seen so far.

    That's what I am hoping too. We've seen glowing fiery chainsaw blades for stalkers and chainblades for warriors. Esper and Spellslinger weapons have lots and lots of different models from what we have seen.

    Hm...spinning sawblade defib medic thingies!

    What's weird in my opinion about the medic's weapon, is that they're huge compared to the flat armour we've seen so far (low-lvl?).
    If the gear gets a bit bigger in size and more impressive, it should fit better.

    Sawblades on a defibrillator seems like a bad idea, at least for the patient. :D

    I think Medics will be a 50/50 mix of paladin (bubbles and shields) and shaman (elemental) I guess/hope Medics will be middrange-longrange. :up:

    And yeah i like the name Medic, and i hope Carbine goin with it.

    You say that like they're supposed to just help patients. Sometimes shock paddles just aren't enough to put some screaming idiot out of their misery.

    I'm sure if you punch them enough times with them. It'll get the job done.

    They could be energy cannons, plasma weaponry, nanite generators, circa 1600 DE(Dominion Era) easy bake ovens, or some other type of weapon who's name can't be disclosed yet.

    Now I wish this was their actual weapon.

    I will kill you by exposing you to a very warm lightbulb for 10-15 minutes.

    I actually almost accidentally started a house fire and killed my entire family by absentmindedly putting a stuffed frog plushie on top of a lamp lightbulb over night. Thing's bottom got charred black.

    It's seriously lethal, man.

    Child hood toys are seriously lethal, just ask Bob the mouse, Bob the mouse, Bob the mouse, and Bob the mouse what happened to Bob the mouse when I tried to put him in my sisters Barbie mansion.( note this story involves 5 chua Mice named Bob, and a 4 year old.)

    Looking off the actual in-game images rather than some poster, I'd wager they'd have more to do with poison/medicinal spray cannons or even capsule launchers.

    And to quote Bo Burnham, "easy bake oven was just a phase" (figured some of y'all could relate to that one :p).
