As this week is a short week due to the American Thanksgiving holiday, we are putting up this week's DevPick early.
This week, since we haven't done any InstaGib DevPicks in a while, we thought we would try and change things up a bit for the IG fans out there. The tweaks are simple, but hopefully fun!
So, what's HyperGib, you ask? Besides a corny last-minute name due to lack of a better one, the differences are that the Railgun has been lowered from 1500ms reload to 800ms reload, the Gauntlet will inflict 150 damage when you hit an enemy, and gravity has been lowered by half.
Interestingly enough, the lowered gravity is also great for practicing picking up speed through strafe jumping on the more open maps, so if you're looking for an opportunity to sharpen those skills, be sure to give it a shot.
For all those who celebrate it, we wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving. If you don't celebrate it, then make sure you check out some of the QUAKE LIVE Dreamhack coverage this weekend! (I'll be doing both, personally!)
