A Throwable axe was one of the first mods released for Quake back in 1996

without a doubt: the nailgun. iirc the original quake story was going to involve a hammer.....but it was made to be an axe as the game's development proceeded. the idea of hammering enemies like the god Thor has a lot of merit....see the "Talk-to-me" hammer example for clarification:>

I expected the Nailgun to win this poll. I voted for the Axe because its only use is that it looks cool. A nailgun sometimes is quite useful on e1m2 imo.

Ever tried stopping an enemy that is chasing you by firing a single nail from nailgun against him? You should try it, it's $$$. Good occasions - dm2 running thru big, dm6 when he's speedjumping from cells to gl, teamplay - pent trying to get somewhere fast. Voting for axe, sorry.

Here's what I was thinking about when making this poll:

I can think of a situation for every single weapon where that weapon would be the best choice (even axe!). The *only* situation that the nailgun would be of use (than it's big brother the perforator, aka sng) is if you only have 1 nail left!

Definitely the RL!

But all jokes aside, the NG is useless. The ninja factor of using the axe from behind on someone puts its value up tenfold.

every weapon has its use, even nailgun, thinking of it now, I think the best usage of nailgun is when you're in tele area on dm2 and someone spawned, you can kill him very easily because he can't go sideways

yes, goqsane, but sng would still be a better use, and rl better use, and lg the best use in that situation.

Here are the best situations for each gun that I came up with:

1) axe: enemy is extremely low health (you know this), and you want to embarrass them (come on, it's what it's for)
2) sg: kill enemy far away when you have quad, or precision shots for enemy far away
3) ssg: best for close combat like lg, but spread over a wider distance so maximizes chance of hitting enemy. pops enemies back, up, and also pops teammates up
4) ng: sng will always be a better choice unless you have 1 nail left!
5) sng: slowing down enemy bhoppers, water
6) gl: spam, choke holes
7) rl: precise killing of multiple enemies, etc
8) lg: maximum damage per second of any gun, best when plowing through enemies with quad or keeping enemy in air


can people who voted for axe think of a specific situation for ng that would be its best purpose? (image all guns were in EVERY map)
