Power-up which extends its person's ricochet angles for all projectiles up to 90º. Lasts for 6 seconds. Once that time is up, previously fired projectiles still bounce, but any shots fired after revert to the normal ricochet angle.

I don't know if I'd want an auto or an M79 when picking up this power-up.

haha sounds fun... 15-20 seconds for reccommended time.

20 seconds sounds about right, and 90º is perfect to ensure that you don't accidentally massacre your teammates if friendly fire is on.

Really? 20 seconds; that long? Uh, all right... o.O'

^dude, it's just ricocheting, not that great a powerup. it deserves 15-20 seconds, although i'm leaning toward 15 seconds. a maximum ricochet amount would be needed though, i can imagine someone firing an mp5 in lagrage slightly toward the ground... not pretty.

Normally I'm negative to new power ups, but this one sounds like fun ^^ 15-20sec spunds fine ;D perhaps even taking it one step further and adding the angle as a server option (would prolly be used for a while then die, like WM and adv. mode)

I love it. Perhaps it could also be added as a weapon modding possibility.

So are you saying the rubber for some time and bounce off everything. Thats grenades as well?

Umm... doesn't 90º mean it will always ricochet? You would have bullets flying everywhere, and then they will dribble along the floor forever until they hit someone? It's hard to explain, but if they come from the left, they are inside 90º from the left, and vica-versa for the right.
It has potential, but yeah...
Supported anyway!

EDIT @Below: Eh, my own knowledge gets mixed up im my head all the time, I'm probably thinking of triangles...

No, if they would always ricochet, it would need 180 degrees.
