    The loading and shooting sounds you copied from UT99 always have the same volume. In this way it sounds as if your opponent stands next to you while he is on the other side of the map...
    If you could fix that, then it will be brilliant
    Thanks. I haven't adjusted the Eightball Rocket Launcher in a few months. Eventually when I have time I will update this weapon and fix audio (and any other) issues.

      I'm not sure if it's intentional but I was able to load and fire 4 rockets with the Trident RL sometimes. It seems if you load up 3 rockets and just as they are about to shoot press LMB it increases the chances of this happening.

        I can't replicate this in my own testing, but I added this to my internal bug watchlist. Could be a fake projectile, or perhaps a condition I am not catching.

          I have played several duels/Last team standing with the trident:

          Positives:
          - rockets are small, small splash, more accuracy is required than Epic rockets

          Needs tweaking:
          - Rockets are too fast.

          - Alt-fire is OP; the loading time for rockets needs to be longer to create a trade off between sustained primary fire shots vs taking a chance and loading up rockets for a big burst.
          As it stands now, there is no charge time penalty for loading up 3 rockets and racking up the one-shot kills.

            I think you mean Team Showdown? Otherwise how are you able to play LTS with custom weapons?

            I don't think the rockets are too fast IMO, but there should be a delay to loading them up. These rockets feel dodgeable unlike the stock rockets.

              Initially I had a set up whereby the delay after firing rockets varied based on the loaded rockets. However, in practice this felt weird and unresponsive. I have some better messaging tools set up now so it's possible this idea could be revisited, but I'm not super inclined to do so since I think it's an uphill battle to try and fight a weird feeling with better messaging.

                It had to have been one of those two modes. I played LTS much more than Team Showdown so I just went with that.

                I do think rockets are too fast but only by a little bit. I wouldn't complain if their speed wasn't reduced. I do wonder how they compare to Epic's rockets because I always liked their speed but the damage and splash made them ridiculous.

                  I noticed that there is the Trident loading sound layered on top of the original loading sound and you only hear 2 rockets being loaded to fire 3. For your initial setup, the more rockets you load up and fire the longer you have to wait to fire again? If that is what you meant then I don't think you need to go that route. The way they load now is fine, but the process just needs to be extended. The first rocket loads quickly and you wait, say for a second, for the 2nd rocket to load and then another second for the 3rd rocket to load and it quickly fires after that. You could extend the sound effect to better message the actual length of each rocket. So all in all, 2.5-3 seconds to load and fire all 3 rockets.

                  With that said, I have no idea how difficult it would be to implement or if it is the best way to do so.

                    Couple issues here: One is that Epic has keyed certain sounds to certain animations on the mesh, which means extra work for me if I want to completely change that (eventually I might, but I only plan on replacing sounds I have good audio for).
                    Second is there's a bug with certain audio being played twice simultaneously for the weapon holder, fixed in the next version.
                    Third, if you think about how the Rocket Launcher functions you'll realize why it should only have two loading sounds. At any point in time there's a rocket in barrel 1, because you can instantly shoot a rocket using primary fire. Therefore you should only hear two additional rockets being loaded. There are a lot of other intermediate clicking & whirring sounds with the way this model has been set up to appear & sound on Epic's side though.

                          Thanks for the catch! Fixed.
                          I actually have to have a checklist just to update this stuff, but even with that easy to make oversights.

                              Wail said on today's stream that maybe competitive players would prefer a rocket launcher secondary that doesn't load up multiple rockets.

                              That would free up the three barrels to instead make direct hits more nuanced. Make primary fire shoot three mini-rockets in a tight formation. If the formation hits a wall or the ground then all of them will impact, explode and act like a normal rocket. If you land a direct hit dead on all 3 hit the target and again act like a normal rocket. However if you're slightly off to the side then one of them flies past the target so you only do 2/3 damage, and if you're further off two fly past and you only do 1/3 damage.

                              Then it could be reasonably easy to get direct hits with partial damage but still properly difficult to land a full damage direct hit.

                                Maybe the rocket launcher grenade monitor the presence of the enemy near as it is now implemented in bio launcher and explode itself. And it is not needed the bio launcher, and rocket launcher grenades can become more efficient. But the explosion of a grenade did not explode another grenade. Although the all grenades may explode near one enemy if the all grenades defines the enemy (even in the air). But the direct granade causing much more damage. And it balances the use of rockets and grenades (grenades causing more damage, but difficult to manage).

                                Added

                                About the current rocket launcher shooting. For me it is broken. Think the arcade hold primary button shooting is not good, and dont think that much players use it. Why not.

                                1) click primary fire button - one rocket
                                2) click primary fire button periodically at intervals - current primary shooting (with shown the ready rocket icon in interface, one click - rocket fly, second click while the second rocket is not ready - prepare second rocket fly, which will automatically etc)
                                3) hold primary fire button - 1-3 rockets with the capture of target. If click alt. fire button will switch to the grenades.
                                4) click alt. fire button - one grenade
                                5) click alt. fire button periodically at intervals - the grenades as rockets in pt. 2
                                6) hold alt. fire button - 1-3 grenades (maybe with the capture of target also, but not much fixed path). If click primary fire button will switch to the rockets
