We've punched out a few quick demo videos of the weapon customisation of the assault strikers, both with the inbuilt weapons and the attachments. You'll see some of the weapons are pretty damn powerful and it definitely now makes sense to use the shields when you're going up against an opponent with a one shot one kill attachment... Vids after the jump.
Exerpt from the Assault Striker manual:
"Press the Weapon Select button to cycle through your options. Release the button to activate
your choice. Each weapon has a different blasting speed.
Laser strike is your default weapon. It doesn’t have much firepower but it blasts super fast.
Stealth strike is similar to laser strike but its muffled blasts let you sneak up on enemies.
Pulse strike packs more punch. It’s best in semi-auto mode but uses ammo faster and has a longer delay between blasts.
Rail strike has a ton of firepower but goes through ammo fast and has a longer delay between blasts.
Sonic strike is the biggest weapon in your arsenal but goes through ammo quickly and has the longest delay between blasts.
Slightly ambiguous, so we've shot some videos to try and work out how much ammo and how much damage can be done with each weapon.
Laser Strike: The default weapon on the Light Strike taggers. Shoots 20 rounds before reload, and takes 12 shots to take out an opponent completely.
Stealth Strike: Basically the same power and rounds as the Laser Strike, only with a muffled sound (like it's silenced)
Pulse Strike: 15 rounds per clip, and takes 8 successful shots to take out your opponent.
Rail Strike: not available in semi automatic mode. Slow to fire and reload, with only 8 rounds to a clip but it can take out an opponent in 3 hits. Bam!
The Sonic Strike is the biggest inbuilt weapon, with 6 rounds a clip and can take out an opponent with two shots.
The Refractor Launch System. Basically increases your tagger's spread and also introduces a uber lethal weapon- a two shot kill. And it vibrates.. It also has a touch sensitive button on the side of the attachment you need to hold when firing (or it reverts to the standard weapon) but the good thing about this is this weapon is independent of the inbuilt weapons meaning it doesn't replace any of them.The Light Strike Scope attachment is very cool- it doubles your blaster's range (but only when using the Optical Cannon and Refractor Cannon weapons that comes with the attachment) and has a red dot sight. It's a two shot kill weapon and the sound effects are true sniper inspired. Note by attaching this scope, most of the inbuilt weapons are replaced (Pulse Strike, Laser Strike, Rail Strike and Sonic Strike) and unavailable until you remove the attachment. You're left only with the Optical Cannon, Refractor Cannon and the Stealth Strike, however if you have the Rapid Fire unit attached that also works:)
The Rapid Fire attachment. It's hard to tell how many rounds it goes through or how much damage (though it looks like 8..)- just point and squeeze. And it vibrates!:) Note attaching this replaces all inbuilt weapons.
