Today I worked on the visuals for the heavy matter slugs, Retrobooster’s instant-shot weapon. It left a smoke trail before, but that was wishy-washy and people who saw it didn’t understand it very well. Now the weapon traces a well-defined line so you know exactly where it went.
There is also a new laser pointer. Testers were asking for a tool to help with aiming, which was the original motivation for the laser. Now it seems the laser has the most utility with this particular weapon. In fact, it is almost necessary for aiming this weapon. The weapon needs to recharge between shots, so you can’t rely on shooting it repeatedly to hit your target. The laser gives you the accuracy you need.
