The Mass Driver (MD) is probably the most specialized weapon in Tremulous. Easy to pick up, but difficult to master, the Mass Driver serves the function of the Human team's long-range heavy hitter, delivering 38 damage points anywhere with precise accuracy. This makes the weapon suitable for fire support, area denial, and dretch/granger hunt roles. In the hands of a master MDer, the weapon can also be used as a potent short-range anti-dretch weapon. In this situation, however, the slow repeat time of the weapon, combined with its pinpoint accuracy, devalues it somewhat in the hands of most players. A more effective weapon to use versus dretches at short range is the shotgun, unless one has mastered the Mass Driver.
