    the x-gun and the h-gun have missed more often? i agree! but the x-gun and the h-gun have made much more victims so far than the y-gun, simply because the hunters preferred those cooler looking and in their opinion more effective weapons to the y-gun. it's good as a distraction, but it's a bad idea to use it alone.
    It's true that the x-gun and h-gun have had more victims, but that is simply because those weapons are used far more frequently than the y-gun. Other than Katou, nobody really uses the y-gun. All of the other weapons are used by basically everyone. I could probably count the number of times the y-gun has been used on one hand. The x-gun/rifle have been used hundreds of times, on all sorts of enemies.

    So far we've only seen the y-gun fail to capture and transport Nuri and Tengu, so overall it still has a higher success rate than the other weapons. Shape shifters have been few and far between though (I can only think of Nuri, and that one oni alien that Inaba had sex with).

    As far as Tengu goes, he was strong enough to resist the h-gun (multiple times), so what did you expect? Most enemies get outright smashed by the h-gun, so I would say that Tengu was abnormally powerful, and one of the few exceptions that could break free from the y-gun via brute strength.

    What? This isn't the matrix, the suit doesn't allow you to dodge bullets. Do you understand how fast you'd have to be to dodge a projectile moving at over 1,000 feet per second? The suit allows you to run faster by giving you the added strength of the artificial muscles, however, at best this would allow the average human to run as fast as an Olympic sprinter.

    As far as him locking on to them, how is he supposed to do that while he's getting ventilated the MP5Ks of several cops. For those that don't know the MP5K is a tactical sub-machine gun (SMG) made by German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch (H&K).

    Spoiler show


    Its a closed-bolt SMG that fires the 9mm parabellum cartridge. It can fire up to 800 rounds per minute (13 per second).

    I think Nishi did pretty well killing most of them. These guys seemed to be pretty elite. Probably the Tokushu Kyūshū Butai of the National Police Agency. If he had his controller in hand though, they would have all died.

    I love Oku's attention to detail when it comes to guns. Notice the GLOCK 19 at the end too.

    Sub machine guns are far from useless.

    SMGs have several advantages over assault rifles for CQB (Close Quarters Battle). SMGs are lightweight, have a high rate of fire, accurate at short distances. You'll never see a smart tactical unit like the NAVY SEALs using an M-16 while moving around indoors. Rather than waste time pointing out the obvious, take a look at the preferred CQB weapon of choice for counter-terror units around the world, its the MP5.

    Well, if he had the controller on him, he had plenty of time to go invisible before the made entry. Also, it wouldn't make sense that gantz would allow him to show the cops how he can get up being shot dozens of times, but he wouldn't let him turn invisible? He more than likely just didn't bother bringing it with him to school. Either way, the point is that if Nishi could have used his invisibility it, he would have easily owned them.

    lightweight yes
    CQC, assault rifles have that ability as well(M4)

    Re: Gantz Rewards and Weapons

    I think 100pts 200pts 300pts exct have there own menus. If you were to clear and just keep banking your points you would get better wishes. Thats
    what i Believe. Example if you banked 700 points you probably get the mecha
    suit or can revive multiple people.

    Re: Gantz Rewards and Weapons

    Maybe they revived each other, was nobu alive I think he was. If he wasn't
    his girl could always revive him. Seeing what kind of team they are, I doubt
    they would revive each other. They'll probably go for more power. But it would be nice to see Osaka's full team again.

    I think Oka would be the one exception to that. I'm pretty sure the survivors woke up a bit after the last mission and they won't have a chance against another mission like that anytime soon "unless" they bring back at least Oka. He was the #1 gantzer in all of Japan, if anyone is worth that revive it's him. Then again if they're totally retarded and are 100% ignorant of everything around them..

    Anyways, I'm thinking that the weapon armory system is depending on the # of times you put your points into the weapons. 1st is the BFG, whatever is in-between could be something less obvious like a new power to the regular suit or some useful small trinket and "then" the mecha etc.

    We haven't actually seen what shows up when you pick the weapon though, it says WEAPON, as in singular but that could be ONE weapon out of a list of choices with some unlocked later.

    Anyways, slightly different takes on some stuff mentioned.

    5th clear is flying bike i think. perhaps 2nd 3rd 4th 5th...are repeats of h-gun and stuff...that would explain why anzu had one.

    I think it's more likely to assume that oka cleared the first time, got the H-Gun, found someone he liked or saved his points, either revived said person or held points past the two hundred mark, then the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, are flying bike, powersuit, mecha. And we can assume if this is the case the other guy decided to save his points or revived someone else...we don't know but i think it's more likely that it goes in order then it does a 100 point menu and a 200 point menu and so on....so after you buy the H-Gun, you clear lvl one, and no matter what you use your next 100 points on your always going to go to the 2nd lvl weapon after that...just my personal theroy..

    Re: Gantz Rewards and Weapons

    Hmmm...

    I think the "scaner" of Kyo (The hunter of Osaka) was only a computer connected to a X Gun with a Digital Camera.

    The language that could be seen in the monitor was only greek, so it couldn't been hard to find a program to translate it. But the other weird symbols (the non translated score), well...maybe the weren't that hard neither.

    Maybe there is an option that allows you to get more than 100 points per mission, that would be useful.

    Re: Gantz Rewards and Weapons

    I'm thinking the flying bike was just Oka using the full potential of the bike to drive up walls and project off things.

    The Mecha didn't seem very useful...at all. At most it seems like a shield. It might not have been a reward (but chances are it is).
