I was following Brink for a good half a year before release. In order to channel my obsession with the game, I started trying to figure out the real world insperations for all of the weapons in the game, in addition to just picking up all the information about the game I could.
My quest to identify all of the weapons eventually brought me here to make a few suggestions and corrections. There is very little about the gameplay that I don't know at this point, so feel free to ask any questions. My knowlege stops short of programming, consoles, and servers though.
