When you kill a plasma cannon user meelee, you can get his plasma cannon. I'm not sure if really a glitch or just an award for meelee killing. If not a gltich please forgive me....

This happens because due to limitations of the Skulltag engine. The game deletes the plasma cannon pickup as soon as it gets dropped to keep anyone from picking it up, but the code keeps us from doing it instantly. You have 1/35 of a second to pick it up before the game removes it.

So yeah killing with melee sometimes lets you grab it in that 1/35 of a second. Same with the Knife and SSG.

I'd say that you deserve to get them.
Meleeing them isn't easy.

for the 6516516516515th time, why do you need delay in the Spawn state?

Code:
Spawn:
stop
^ That works

Or the dropitem property for weapons. It is sort of like if weapon drop is on, a different actor is dropped instead.

Thetis, if you want to, you could go and make weapons use the dropitem property. I'm still busy with other things such as the Guardian and importing stuff to trunk.

I think this would be better fixed by disabling weapon drops.
