The point is they give noobs a chance. Also if you play fragger and you are low on HP you know a medic is coming for you so you knife him just before he kills you. Great way to get an extra kill when death was unavoidable..
I was playing baserace desert on jay3 today and standing in the soldier hut wishing I could pick up the panza. Then I remembered that its only a setting to restrict the number of people holding a certain weapon. Which got me thinking. Baserace is a great example of a map that sort of lets you build your own base and defend it with whatever you want. So could I ask as I am sure each map has a mapconfig... Could we set baserace.cfg to let anyone pickup a panza, sniper scope etc.. from the various huts that the team builds? It would hopefully make the map more fun and realistic as it is 30 mins .
Put hunkmegs soundmegs and zonemegs in your target shortcut. Where you have the game icon to start the game, usually desktop. Right click it and select properties, then edit the target file with +set. similar to mine below;
