    after reading the awesome lamda project thread (thanks for that) I have theorized that the gun that makes people float in the air and eventually disappear into thin air is some kind of teleporter similar to what adrian shephard incounters in Opposing Force (giant worm blob that you have to shoot in the eyes) (also a gun that YOU use if you recall to instantly waste xenners or bad guys in HL) it is my theory that these people are being used for something on the planet that the striders/race-x/combine? are up to.

    Actually I believe it's similar to an atom-splitter though it splits a person.

    yah i like this theory as well.
    cuz it looks like they glow for a bit while theyre floating and then all of a sudden they disappear, only to reappear somewhere else?

    sounds legit :cheers:

    Seconded. Or their bodies are burnt to toast, floating away on a breeze before disintegrating into ashes.

    Like the way Gordon's hearing develops a ringing noise just from being caught near the blasts (and wobbly movement?); "Gordon, you're still alive! Thank god for that hazard suit".

    Possibly a pulsed version of the gluon gun.

    Teleportation...possibility but still not.
    BUT:

    They tried to make a teleportation device and found out that it teleports but kills the target(living) before that. Then they decided to use it as a huge gun and implent it to building -sized three-legged thingy.

    Then again..not, Atom splitter thirted...something..

    They vaporize into energy... thats it, didn't you see the glowing things that appeared after they poofed? Yea, that's what they turn into. They go to the demension of death...

    I bet there gonna have a scientist introduce the gun as an 'experimental weapon', just like that one vacuum sounding gun that had the blue beem in HL1.

    It really looks to me like they're turned to paper ash, and then just evaporate.

    If they wanted them to evaporate, or crumble to ashes, they could do it. It's clear that scientists are continuing their research into Xen and teleportation, so I'm guessing that the Combine developed this into the Irifle/Strider cannon.

    the Opposing Force transporter gun was interesting, in that every map after you recieve it has a xen section underneath it in the mapping space, so u could go on little trips for health and supplies lol.

    ...or dementia. :D

    Anyways, the original teleport gun would be great to have back. Teleporting to BM or Xen would be way cool.
    Also, I'd bet that the stridder's guns are based on some sort of theoretical physics. (Like how the Manipulator makes use of the unproven Hutchinson effect.)

    Well, that's because it sorta isn't. :)
    No-one has reproduced the effects of Hutchinson's experiments (to my knowledge).
    It might be a hoax, or it might be a huge scientific discovery.
    Valve apparently decided that the latter would make a better weapon. :)

    Anyways, it explains the 'welding' and the hovering. The actual launching force is anyone's guess.

    Same. After all, when Freeman gets hit with the same gun, he doesn't transport anywhere either time in the vids.

    The Hutchison Effect stuff is really cool. I bet the US government has either [1] disproved it by now or [2] already knows how to utalize it.

    No, the aliens working with the US goverment know how to use it..duh!

    But seriously, that thing is simply amazing. It says that the metal starts breaking apart. So, does the effect go to the molecule level and starts ripping that metal apart from there?

    That is just simply sweet.

    Aaah, the Hutchinson Effect could explain the monkey wrench sticking out of my elbow...
    [/RANDOM]
    It could pretty sweet. So we have levitating objects irl as well as teleporting photons? Nice.

    the links to videos posted above this reply are nice bu if you scroll down and view movie 2 for windows media you can see that in the top left hand corner there is a wire moving back and forth up and down in time with the movements of the suposedly 'levitating' object :LOL: . im not saying the 'h-effect' is fake or anything but that is an extremely dodgy video

    Remember if you see when Gordon gets hit by the Strider's 'gun', he doesn't get teleported...He just gets injured and his ears ring...So it's obviously not a teleport gun.

    no, they made a teleporter... play the leak and you'll see it. That Irifle just vaporizes you... nothing more.

    I wasn't quoting the video -- it's a comment made by one of the Walters (Dr. Kleiner style scientists) in HL1 when he's sees you've survived. One of the plot-enhancement dialogues


    The 'IRifle' is a grenade launcher of some description. In the tunnels clip it was firing incindery grenades -- the E3 2K4 clip saw it shoot out something like the Strider's main weapon effect (EMP grenades?). It's probably going to work in a manner where you can change the grenade types at the click of the alt-fire button, as with the 'nade-chucker in AvP2.

    He explains that right under the videos. There doesnt seem to be any kind of string attached to the toy, so I dont think its a fake. Not to mention the guy works with the CIA and NASA...

    well i didnt read that bit sorry but it still looks dodgy - and just cos he says the string isnt holding it up doesnt mean it isnt, much like just because he says he works for whoever doesnt mean he does. this is the internet, dont beleive everything you read. if you did beleive everything you layed your eyes on you would have donated your all your money to some cult and would currently be in a shitty little house laying on a bunk bed awaiting your mothership to save you from the second coming. :rolleyes:
