Technically it's the first Lua-based weapon... But it is not the first to be released. Bawwwww.
This does exactly what you think it does. Fire a shot, hit an enemy, and BAM PRESTO you are in control of them. It can't be used on brains, however. If another player is controlling the actor, they are booted back to their bran unit. It also takes a long time to charge. This keeps the balance. Please do not use it on the Mega Crab.

Just download it. Pictures don't quite sum it up.

Sweet, now I can jack my friend's uber units and turn them on his own forces!

*maniacal laughter*

Seriously great, does the unit return control after a certain time? If not, is that even possible?

No wonder why you were Upgraded to engineer, you just amaze us!

And what are the terms of the mind control, like you can only control it when it is selected?
4th Post; 3rd DL... and yes I'm trying to start something.

When it hits somebody, it's just like switching to them in with the switch actor buttons. They stay on their team, too. If you switch away, the enemy regains control. And I haven't made it so it switches back after time. I might. And if you shoot yourself... You just switch to yourself.

Sounds awesome, but is there a way to abort control or do you just switch bodies and lose control?
I guess I'll just play and see.
Anyway, congrats on the first cool lua mod.

Doesn't work for me. Just does the fancy flash but no mind control.

Aww, yes. This is truly awesome! Excellent sprites and excellent functionnality.

To those who can't use it properly, you have to aim it at an enemy actor and fire (hold the firing button for a few seconds). An energy ball will come out.

Hey does this work on doors? Also, I'm going to test it on the mega crab, now. :D

Oh you have to hold it DOWN? That explains.

This gun is nothing short of awesome. Controlling an enemy actor and wreaking havoc on their own lines is sweet. And this also proves that i really need to learn Lua when i have the time. >.>
