I am now a convert to the Church of Volt Driver. I initially ignored the weapon because it takes a long time to reload, it has a slow fire rate, and it requires a six-week training course to reload the thing. You reload the bullets by tapping R, but you recharge its energy by HOLDING R and tapping the fire button until the meter is full, which is different from the meter of the OTHER electrical thing you have to pump to keep charged. If you don’t have the energy high enough it will still fire, but will do almost no damage. You can overcharge it, but the overcharge dissipates quickly.
It might not sound complicated, but in the context of fighting a swarm of foes this is about four more steps than I want between me and the point where I can murder things.
But based on feedback from a lot of you, I gave it another try. It has turned Metro 2033 into a point-and-click adventure. Just equip the volt driver and then click on the monster you want to remove from the game.
Did I mention how much I like the towns in this game?
