This is a repost from the discord. I was asked to start a thread here for non-discordians. This was made in response to a post, but it can be taken as a general response to people who dislike the bounce that HG has on all shots. It's very powerful, and since it's not optional, you should master it in order to play the class at the highest level. Discord Text and video below: I made a little montage of various uses of bouncing shots with HG. It's not hard at all to use this as long as you are keeping your mind thinking about the angles. Most of these examples revolve around creating a "kill zone" by using walls the channel your shots against the enemies. Example at 52 seconds is using the things your complaining about - the bullets travelling longer distances, to my advantage to kill offscreen. Why don't I just spray forwards? Angling the shot I get to cover horizontal space increasing the chance of contacting an enemy. then right after I use 2 surfaces to bank my shots to keep me safe from the shot gunner. Notice my dash is down the whole time, so i cannot charge through the shots.
