    Update for New Build
    Side note: also be aware that I moved the locations of some files around on Rushbase to try and organize things a bit more cleanly.

    Updated Stinger Sequencer Minigun PAK
    Updated Weapon Replacement Mutator

    Doing a pass on all weapons and once I am able I will update the Weapon Testing Arena map.


    Changes this Version
    • Sequencer Minigun weapon now bound to 6 key for ClassicGroups property (thanks RattleSNAK3).
    • Primary fire damage reduced from 14 to 11
    • Projectile damage lowered from 24 to 22
    • Projectile fire spread increased from 0.0725 to 0.145

      It may be a bit late to start spouting out ideas about this weapon, but I noticed...
      A lot of people like and want the ripper, and you yourself said that you felt the stinger alt-fire was a bit boring.

      Anyways; if you're interested, here's a bit of extra detail:
      Every time the stinger shard bounces off of a wall, it leaves a small amount behind, this amount will be taken away from the damage of the final shard, and will still leave the shard there to be stepped on.

      Additionally, though this isn't to fit in with the original idea. How about introduction an element of uncertainty and instability to the alt-fire. Giving it a chance to blow up which increases linearly.

      I'm really into my ripper idea, I hope you guys like it

        Update for New Build
        Once again updating the weapon for a new build. The current build broke the default key bindings for this weapon so the major objective in this version was fixing that. Weapon should correctly bind to key 6 by default.
        Other features: Reduced weapon switch time (Refire Put Down Time)
        I have also gone to an explicit version number in the PAK names to prevent older version conflicts.

        This weapon was completely rebuilt from scratch as a consequence of trying to get the bindings to work so please let me know of any issues.

        Updated Sequencer Minigun PAK
        Updated Weapon Replacement Mutator

            Thanks, have you been finding it effective? I definitely like it in terms of aligning gameplay with thematics (Minigun, ergo firing lots of bullets), but I'm not sure how useful it has really been. Most of the times I've seen people use it, they don't end up ever killing anyone.

              I've played with it quiet a bit and your thoughts are true I guess. The charge time is too long and it's not really reliable to score a frag with, or to do good damage. I do like the idea though.

              Personally I'm a fan of the original minigun, where the primary is much slower but more effective in long range, and the secondary is much faster but eats up your ammo. I'm not sure the idea of the stinger improved on that functionality, I don't think it did.

                When it comes to the Sequencers secondary there are a lot of parameters that can be tweaked for exploring the idea and making it useful. Number of charges, time per charge, damage of projectiles, speed of projectiles, speed of barrage, spread angle, etc. I'd be surprised if it were right out of the box but there's enough parameters to tweak that I think it can be made useful (whatever that means).

                As for the old primary / secondary mechanics: I agree, having those was kind of nice. I plan on bringing that back in some fashion, although unfortunately there are some limitations because of lack of C++ support for what I would like to do. It is nice to be able to go from standard firing to balls-to-the-walls berserk mode when the situation warrants it though.

                  Sneak peek at the latest updates to the Stinger Sequencer Minigun. Planning to make this available shortly after the next build drops.

                      Feels amazing and powerful, just as minigun should be. I'm curious about the muzzle flash color, is this going to remain Stinger or will it become Minigun eventually? Anyway, it's functionality could be best of all UT series.

                        Glad you guys are liking this, I'm quite excited to get to play with this in the next build.

                        You can decide for yourself whether it's either a Stinger or Minigun. To me it's both. This weapon definitely draws on materials from all incarnations of the gun.
                        Yellow coloration will stay, but further refinements of effects are always in consideration.

                            Updating the Stinger Sequencer Minigun to v11.

                            Features: Sped up secondary firing overall, increased secondary damage, added new 'Overdrive' mode, HUD indicators (should be configurable), improved kill icons, audio and visual effects overhaul, etc.

                            This is a pretty big update to this weapon so definitely want to keep an eye out for any broken functionality or issues with the new version.

                                Hey Wail, this is some really cool stuff, I definitely think the minigun is a weapon that could use some more imaginative features than it currently has. Can I ask if this was done purely using blueprint or did you need to use C++? I've been toying with trying to get a charge mechanic working on the stinger myself but I wasn't really sure if I could make it work just using the editor and blueprint.
