Mad Scientist + The Gunslinger = OHSHI-? :
Exactly What It Says on the Tin. What if the two tropes above were combined, with Rayguns replacing Revolvers? It would make some sense from a superpower perspective, as super-fast thinking could naturally lead to the Super Reflexes needed to make this work. Likewise, Awesome by Analysis would allow them to pull off all those a Bizarre and Improbable Ballistics, and Improbable Aiming Skills could be explained by insanely steady hands and and a really keen eye for detail, all of with would probably come with the package for the Super Intelligent Omidisciplineary Scientist. From a story point of view, it makes sense, as it allows the more cerebral mad scientists to keep pace with all those Flying Bricks and Reality Warpers in a fight while still being a Badass Normal in comparison, and it could lead to an insanely cool situation if two of these gunslinging hyper-intelligent madmen stood of against each other. And it just get even crazier when you considerer what a Mad Scientist could do to his Weapon of Choice… Just throwing this out there. Thoughts? Collarys? Exsamples in fiction?

Sounds rad, but how do you keep them from being overpowered?
Knife Nut can throw a kukri like a boomerang, and perform the Robin-hood trick with throwing knives. The resident wizard is also similar, in that he’s pretty much a squishy Wave Motion Gun, a'la black mage. Back on topic, His gun might only slightly damage the flying-brick of the week, and a super-speedster could dodge the energy beam. Not to mention he's almost complete screwed if disarmed, and he could always run out of power. Also, if he takes so much as one hit he's out for the count, or at least highly injured. Of course, he could make a force-field, but of course, GAME BALANCE.
Nice. I like this idea!
Feels Good, ManThis needs to be a videogame.
SURPRISEMake it so that the gun's all purpose. Grav-gun, ASHPD, Soulcube, and time-travel device, all in one!

Lord BritishAre the weapons strong enough to suggest some sort of kickback?
SPEED UP | MISSILE | DOUBLE | LASER | MULTIPLE | ?
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
