so I just got adams afb, got the cannon from the crate, and it's no where near as pwoerful as it should be. It can one hit utrrets, but hellfire troopers taek a good three shtos, vertibirds take 15. Anyone know what might cause this?-DragonJTSLeave me a message 23:08, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Ummm, wow! It's only supposed to take a single shot to take down a Vertabird. I doubt this is it, and it may be a problem with your game, but what level is your big guns skill? If it's really low, then maybe that could be affecting it's damage, but if that's not it, then sorry, not sure what else it could be. Good luck. --Esscex 04:52, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm thinking it's must be a glitch on my end, since I have max big guns and energy weapons, and even tried taking potshots on very easy. damnit. -DragonJTSLeave me a message 04:56, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

umm... ITS A FREKING ENERGY WEAPON! —Preceding comment was unsigned. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Well, at the time I said that, there wasn't much info about it pulled from the GECK, so I really had no idea of knowing, plus it's big as hell, like a big gun. --Esscex 03:25, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

I wasn't sure which it was. after all, the gatling laser could be mistakne for an energy weapon, and this resembles a big gun. -DragonJTSLeave me a message 06:09, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm going to say it defiantly a gltich, as after playing through the mission without using it, I've discovered around the time the crawler coems into view, the vertibirds I encounter can be destroyed via one shot each, and some soldiers go down in one hit from splash dameg alone, while tohers can still taking multiple vats shots to the head. WTF? -DragonJTSLeave me a message 06:17, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

I guess as long as it's taking down vertibirds it's all good, seeing as that's what it's purpose was, although the fact that it takes more than one shot, even to the head to kill someone is pretty weird. --Esscex 03:25, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
