laze swords/light sabres?

Post by Amitt0 » 11 Dec 2017, 06:51

Heyo dudes. Last round I played this past weekend seemed pretty typical. Marines were forced back to the nexus but rallied with the help of some effective obs and cas.
We pushed the aliens back to hydro and medical and in the process of clearing that out I saw marines with laze cutlasses and laze swords?
One marine wielding one got hugged so I picked his up and promptly murdered the crap out of an alien. It was like cutting butter with a hot knife.
WHERE DID THESE COME FROM?

are they predator weapons or specialized for a single round or?... it's got me curious.
I play primarily as Era "Hannibal" Barca, PFC, Lenny Clark, CL, RP enthusiast,cautious fighter and thrilled player of this great game.

It was likely an admin event where those weapons were spawned, either directly or through mobs.
This is war, survival is your responsibility.

Admin only. Predators do not get these. Energy swords are worthless in CM anyway.

You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

Predators had energy swords in their trophy room at one point, might still be there.
