If not, then why doesn't it block facehuggers? Do you have something against me 360 no scoping an alien in a durag?


I'm pretty sure it does.

It does block a hugger, it has no "broken" animation tho, so its possible to pick up a spec's durag, thinking its still active and then turns out it wasn't

if an alien that can spit acid at objects was flying through space could they spit in front of them and propel themselves backwards?

This is a Heat Absorbent Coif. It is a small item.
A close-fitting cap that covers the top, back, and sides of the head. Can also be adjusted to cover the lower part of the face so it keeps the user warm in harsh conditions.


ive been wandering how to do this, as i have seen other marines with it pulled up over their faces.

What you probably saw was a balaclava probably from a PMC. Two different things. I don't think you can adjust the heat absorbent coif.

nah, they were most definitely marines. they had standard snow kits, and when examined, didnt have any doner items. the coif they were wearing was visually different, covering more of the face.

So i've trying to figure out attachments and what they do. Does adding an Extended barrel to a gun just makes sure that the bullet doesn't deviate from where you click or does it also reduce the chance that aliens have when they "dodge" bullets? And does it stack or no? Im thinking the attachment only makes sure the bullet doesnt stray off the target tile and is still susceptible to dodging, but im not quite sure.
Gaze upon me,
for I have wandered deep into the ancient tombs of knowledge to which lie madness and sorrow, cleansing a path for all those who walk behind me...


...

But seriously, does uh, anyone know the way out?!

I'd like to direct you to the two following resources:

http://www.colonial-marines.com/viewtopic.php?t=6654

http://www.colonial-marines.com/wiki/Ma ... ttachments

While I can't tell you the specifics of what each attachment actually does, nor how it works, these links should give you a good idea.

Yah well i understand what all attachments do basically, im just looking for a little more clarity on such topics. like the notice that tossing a stock or recoil compensator stops all recoil on a gun, not just diminishing it.

So, i tinkered around with the MULEbot, seems that i still cannot find out how to set it going into destinations. Ill probably look around a bit deeper, or maybe if a developer can take a look in the code to see if the MULEbot even has its destination code still intact.
Anywho, question is:
Does anyone know what the Destinations for the MULEbot aboard the SULACO is?

(also, why the heck is this thing still 130 points? all you can carry on it is a single crate, no turrets, maybe a person, and it can be broken in two shots from projectiles)

Here's a smart question,

Why did they put that "Scream" intentionally?

I like how people scream when other marines FF them from behind, chestburst, get hit by boiler acid, get their face broken by facehugger removal etc.

It's a very minor buff for marines' situational awareness when they hear someone scream. Just a tiny bit... other than that it's fun.

How do you make reinforced tables? I can make a regular table with metal but I can't seem to add plasteel into the process.

Thanks

Add 4 rods to the table parts. To flip it once placed, weld it, flip it, and then weld it once flipped.
