Gyro shotgun in one hand, health analyser in the other, harm intent. Frazzled nerves because runners and such have been trying to pounce me for a while.

Fill in the blanks. At least point-blank shots don't spawn additional buckshot, or I'd have turned the guy into a fine paste.

EDIT: Also, earlier this week, I was trying to empty out a bicaridine pill bottle during medic prep (wanted to fill it with Big Bic pills). I ate three pills to speed things up a bit before starting to shove the rest in disposals, but noticed I was beginning to take some severe damage.

I'd managed to start emptying a kelotane bottle instead, and was sitting on a self-induced 45u kelo OD. I had to go hide in the ORs to cure myself so nobody would spot me on the medhud and ask how the fuck I'd managed to hurt myself that badly 10 minutes into the round.

On old sulaco I was unaware of the SADARs function when fired on a ship and blew a hole into the Sulaco killing myself and most of the marines.

You're the reason SADARs no longer work on the ship.

Epic shootout with a spitter or something. I'm shooting and missing everything because I sucked then. Accidentally press the throw macro, fling my fancy decked out rifle ten feet away into the darkness instead of shooting.

Go to grab boot knife, realize I forgot it. Left holding the boot that symbolizes my inner self. Attack alien with footwear-based jujitsu as it closes in, hit myself in the chest, fall down, die.

---------

Stuck in medbay on the Sulaco, doing a pretty good job of chasing off T1s harassing the only doc still in there. See the Queen's entourage go by, probably would have left me be to go after the bridge except I charged at them making a shitton of noise. Manage to hit precisely 1 enemy, a hivelord, once before frantically backpedaling into the chemical storage and getting tripped and slashed to death while I type "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" into the chatbox.
...die.

Bonus points: got made fun of by Dolly Waits in deadchat for being a weenie.

-------

Be spec, pre spec overhaul so I had a bunch of nades and a smartgun. See a spitter in a closed in area so I try to get it with a frag grenade. It spits me AFTER I prime the nade.

Die.

Deploy, see xeno, try to shoot xeno, *click*, die.

Prime a grenade while passing out every two seconds due to injuries.

Run into a dark cave filled with eggs to try and secure a kill.

As xeno, claw the alien nest instead of nesting the smartgunner.

First RO day, yesterday.

Went to take a grenade outta the grenade box, to give it to a marine. Fucked up between my AZERTY and QWERTY configuration, primeed the grenade. I had to toss it in the middle of empty RO, destroying one the single light bulb lightening half of the center of the cargo.

Was that why RO was so dark?

Yeah.. I just eh.. sometimes get confused when I switch between QWERTY (fighting/movement) and AZERTY (writing/RPing).

I have an AZERTY keyboard.. So pressing Z = Priming a nade. While, if I activate QWERTY, I move north, because Z is at the same emplacement than W.

But RO is fun, especially giving some heavy fucking weapons to robust marines. You just tell them to come, you give them HPR or BR with attachments on it, and some nades. And you watch them making rain despair and badassness on the enemy ranks.

Had SADAR in hand, GL in back slot. Was clearing weeds with the SADAR alongside a few Marines LATE into the round... I suppose I accidentally wielded the SADAR and clicked one tile away... because a rocket flew forward, hitting the resin wall two tiles away from me, knocking me and another Marine out cold. With multiple fractures.

I was fighting a crusher and I moved out of its path only to be shot in the back of the head with a SADAR rocket. My head came clean off with a solid *POP*

I was Charlie SL, friend joined late and was one of my last squadies alive, stuck with me. She had a flamer and when a crusher came out of the darkness and hit me, she flamed it, but missed and flamed me instead. Crusher dragged me off as she got her limbs removed by a hunter. I ended up getting recovered a minute later but I looked like post lava Anakin so instead of reviving me all 3 medics tended to the XO because he lost an arm.

Triggered a grenade once, planning to cook it.

Ended up that, it blew on my face.
Aliens proceeded to take advantage of every marine in the grenade radius.

Challenges a marine to a duel as a pred and got one-hit-KOed by a punch as soon as it started.

He had obviously been doing his 100 pushups, 100 situps and 1 mile run. As a reward, I have him one of the trophies from the ship I carried with me. A double-bladed e-sword. He promptly died to a hunter.

Was it a young hunter? That sounds about right.

This just happened: Scouting ahead with a smartguner on big red, spot a runner, smarty gives it lead while it's trying to crawl a vent, I do a bad calculation and shoot my shotty, all shells but one landed on the smarty.

Good thing is, I died to a runner who decapped me at two slashes after that. Karma.
