I am, frankly, surprised that more games haven't borrowed from this. The Resistance franchise did it with the Bullseye rifle and it loving ruled.

Lots of games do it, Gears 5 most recently. It's just kind of boring.

A gun that you don't have to aim (or, in this specific case, that you only have to aim once) just isn't very interesting for very long!

You would think that, and yet Resistance 1-3 managed to balance it in such a way that it was fun, rewarding, and challenging throughout a whole best selling franchise (without the tracer, the gun is fairly inaccurate and tracers are limited--forcing you to stay aggressive and switch guns frequently). I don't doubt that its been shittly implemented in other games, but it was a trademark weapon in that series and a welcome sight whenever it appeared in a sequel. Heck, it was absolutely necessary at some points if you played on Superhuman difficulty.

I'm just nerding out about some B-movie-esque alien invasion games, but they did the Zorg Gun gimmick well. (And I'm assuming you haven't played Resistance--apologies if you have!)

There's a great little thing with it where you can fire a tracer round at, say, the ground or the wall, then fire out a clip of bullets... and because they aren't hitting any organic target, the bullets will just keep spinning around the tracer. From there you can either a) fire a second tracer into an enemy, and thus instantly killing them with a cluster of death, or b) use it as a remote detonated mine. You can deactivate the tracer which causes the orbiting bullets to burst out like a makeshift fragmentation grenade.

It's a game full of fun weapons, but the Bullseye is consistently fun... and it's just the Zorg homing bullet function.

this is the best one i could find. it's a lovely kill reel from some dude playing online, but in the first 7 seconds they kill someone with the trap they left, then immediately get another kill across the street when they launch a second tracer bullet--which is pretty rad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvxP09XIZik

the rest of the video kinda sucks.

It was gumballs, not pool balls.

Bruce Willis asks him to slide him the gun, and the deaf dude interprets it as gum.

that's extremely a video that would be better as an essay but it's a good summary of what bugs me about leeloo

I read something that Jean Reno basically was doing his literal best while filming Leon the Professional to 1.) convince Besson to have him be more a father figure with at most boyish naivete with regards to Portmanís character (and removing the romance love story from his end) and 2.) he never let Portman out of his sight or alone with Besson during filming.

So if true, and so far in my unconfirmed research: Jean Reno is the One Good Frenchman.

Speaking of Frenchman I still canít believe My Father the Hero exists.
