  7. Oh gawd Capcom. Stop making these awful names! Too many jokes! Is the point to fly sh** past the radar?? I'm still reeling over the mental image I got on the weapon "pile driver!"

    Why do we want our weapon bouncing off enemy robots, exactly?

    1. The weapon DO deal damage when it touch the enemy, but instead of disapearing, it ricochet. so you can shot once and touche multiple enemies or obstacle through ricochet. Can be potentially broken depending of the stages agencement.

  8. Bounce Man can't be Bounce Man because, yeah, that. Though you'd think a person's mindset wouldn't be so immature and juvenile at this point.
