Very informative. I gave the thread 5 stars on teh rating voting thing.
Here are the smilies I found when clicking "More" on the smilie list, that show a thumbs up. Plus one with a chicken getting netted, which I added just because it looked cool, not because I'm making a statement about netting all the cowards who are afraid to step up and state the truth, fearing vicious retribution from the ignorant masses or anything. You should never hesitate to post though(unless someone goes mad with power, and starts locking all your post for no apparent reason).
Please consider updating the Gantz article on the wikipedia. I did a lot of editing to clean it up here and there, and quote things from the manga exactly as written, but you have information I haven't seen yet, which I believe many would like to read.
yeah,thanks for the new stuff
it ainīt that bad to have some more info on Gantz (we lack chapters anyhow )
well, Iīm gonna observe this thread to get info on the other things too,so good job and keep it going ^^
Ikari, I'm interested in knowing more about the y-gun and its triggers; the upper trigger is used to lock, pretty much like the x-equipment, and both triggers must be pulled in order to shoot, in case the rope, right? And then, in order to send, once the target is already entrapped, does one need to press both triggers again or just the bottom trigger?
I thought the x-gun had one trigger to lock onto something, and the other shot it.
Isn't that why there are two triggers for everything?
You have to lock onto a target before you shoot it?
Pull both triggers at once to speed things up, because you don't want to waste time hitting one, and then the other. And if there is no target to lock onto, you can just shoot straight ahead.
One button to x-ray and lock onto something, and the other to fire at it.
Does building up the power on the shotgun do nothing more than give you a more powerful explosion when you hit something, or does it affect range at all?
Do you build up power on the x-shotgun, in order to get the accurate kilometer range the assassin mentioned in the temple mission? Or can you fire the weaker quick shot and still get the range?
^ At the end of the Onion Alien Mission Nishi orders Kurono to pull both triggers, not only the bottom one, so I'm not sure just pulling the bottom one would do anything.
And the x-ray isn't really related to the trigger, just the locking feature.
The First Trigger is to Lock the Target, the second one is to make it "explode", i guess if someone just press the Second one, nothing would happen even with the flash coming out of the X Gun.
^Please speak english here. Can anyone translate?
^^Wouldn't it still be an explosion in the direction its shot. Gantzers didn't know about the lockon till the 4th mission so they were obviously able to kill stuff before it.
^ The thing is, they don't really need to know the top button is used to lock on to pull the trigger, and all that "I pulled both triggers" and "pull both triggers" mentions make me wonder that although the top trigger has the isolated function of locking, the bottom trigger doesn't necessarily work by itself too. As for the y-gun, maybe the bottom trigger works by itself after the target is trapped by the ropes, but that's just conjecture based on Katou's thoughts while facing 1000 arms.
The point of locking has never been quite clear to me - I mean, even if you have locked, if you move the gun away from your line of fire, then pulling the trigger will just make the shot go in whichever direction you are aiming at...
The only point behind "locking" that I can think of is that it allows you to blow something up from within.
Is locking a requirement for shooting? No: Take the last chibi - he lunges for Tae, then turns around to see Kurono camping behind the pillar - given the delay on the gun, i don't really think that Kurono had time, in that split second, to lock, make sure he had locked, then shoot. So that can only mean that the gun has a speed fire feature.
However, even in the case of obvious "speed fire", as far as I can remember, I have never seen a "surface" explosion in Gantz - everything always seems to explode internally, so the "speed fire" must also include locking - hence the conclusion that to "speed shoot" you have to pull both triggers at once... or at the very least, every gantzer that used a "speed fire" and hit, used both triggers.
A lot of conjecture here, I know...
P/S: "Surface" explosion - digs a hemisphere, or less, into a surface.
"Internal" explosion - Blows a complete sphere (or more than a hemisphere at the very least) within the object...
