Droid arms...

Postby Popchik » Sat Oct 11, 2008 9:18 pm

So I'm planning a trade federation horde, but all i see the droids carrying are weak-ass short ranged weapons. And I really don't want to buy long ranged gun pieces, its already enough that I have to upgrade the old droid's arms and megaphone blasters. plus it just doesn't look as good. So, could I use the short ranged pieces as if they were long-ranged guns if I buy them as long-ranged guns? and does the same go for the super-battle droids built-in guns? can i buy them as long or short ranged guns? Thanks all

Yes. Yes you can. Just make sure that you know they're long range weapons, or it will be very, very confusing.

As for the megaphone blasters, put coloured studs on the end so you can differentiate between long and short.

Yeah, that's a good idea. But a better one is to just forget that bloody CP cost stuff entirely. Who wants the extra hassle just to get fairness?
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

Lol, all your posts contain swearing.

Megaphones are only good for making bazooka-like weapons.

add a 1by1 brick to a megaphone-it becomes long range

add 2 of the short range lasers together- becomes long range

That comic is right indeed.

Maybe they should move the backspace button to that location, so you could find and use it?

Why give droids long range weapons? They can't hit point blank targets in the movie or Cartoon Network series, why would they on the table?

Says the noob.

Popchik, i think droids count as cannon fodder. That said, you could attach a black 1x1 cylinder to the front of the gun and call it long.

or you attach banana to it, and call it a long ranged weapon.
as long you as you know the difference, anything goes.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.
