Added DiffLines:

** Since the game also have "diesel train" that couldn't run on oil, maybe the guns here are just railguns with a NonIndicativeName?


** Mass producing a weapon often means you can't customize it, and the focus is often on quantity, not quality. Plus, you're likely going to have more than 1 Laser Turret covering 1 area - so the [=PDL=] has more firepower to make up for the fact that you can only hold 1.

** That's incorrect though; a single suit of power armor can have a small arsenal of [=PDLs=] fitted into it. This gets more extreme and dangerous when you consider that [=PDLs=] also function while driving a tank, resulting in a mobile death platform.


* Why is the Personal Defense Laser module for Powered Armor more powerful than a full-sized Laser Turret at the same tier? It deals significantly more Laser damage per shot for less energy.

** Or it's just another example of AntiFrustrationFeatures. Having to gather another resource to craft such an essential item like ammunition would make the game harder. Sure, they could simply make you craft bullets with iron plate and coal instead of just iron plate, but apparently it was better idea to just ignore coal for the sake of simplicity.

* How do the guns are work without including some sort of propellant like gunpowder in the ammunition? They could work without it but that would make them coil/railguns, and if they are why would they leave bullet casings in a SpentShellsShower?

** The SpentShellsShower is really just the result of RuleOfCool and it's also possible that the guns are powered by compressed air or something. Besides. It would kinda suck for balance purposes if you had to go and make gunpowder in order to make bullets. Maybe the guns use some sort of propulsion that DOESN'T require gunpowder.

* This troper is curious as to how the guns are firing without including some sort of accellerant like gunpowder. Unless the guns are some sort of coil/railguns I don't see how they should function like that. But then if they are coil/railguns why would they leave casings?
