Help! Links/pics would help too thnx! I can't ink it until I know!

Edit: Um, a mod help me move this to Tips/Tricks plz…

I'd go with ‘Brakk’, ‘Brapp’, or ‘BrakaBrakaBraka’ (and just have it lining the page.

That one sounds good, I like the spinning sound at the start, I'd forgotten they do that.

*Ker-ninja'd!*

How about:

VVVVVVRREEEECHKA-CHKA-CHKA…

You have to consider that a chaingun has to start up first.

Hi y'all. After perusing the suggestions, I'm currently thinking

WHRRRACHACHACHACHAKK–!!

Because Ahnold's minigun did have that mechanical “chhhhhhh” whine to it, rather than the WW2 machinegun's “kakakakakaka” stucatto sound.

However, for pure aural impact, maybe it's better to keep the “kakakakaka”? As in

WHRRRAKAKAKAKAKAKA–!!

What do ppl think? Sorry I'm so conflicted!

1st one yeh've got there sounds like it could definitely work… with the starting-up effect an' so on.

KAKAKA does sound a bit more machinegun-ish : T

A lot of people use “budda budda budda”, but that might be a more… minigun or uzi-ish sound.

I don't normally think of a chaingun as having a semi-auto sound at all… short bursts, sure though. I'd say just make a short “WrrKAKAK” for that. For full auto I think the letters should be big and continue to the edge of the panel.

BRAKKABRAKKABRAKKA for me. I don't know, something about the double Ks just looks… machine gun-ish to me.

the gun starts up spining a blank revolution…wwwrrrvvvvhmmmmckckchsssss….its flexed and ready for hardcore action, the spinning mechanisms gearing up for battle serve to distle fear into the enemy. i picture the character smoking a cigar on top of a hill, some sort of post end of the world scrap heap of concrete and cars, streets signs and rubble. you get a close up of your characters hand *snap* the safety is off.

chnka boom vrrm clk aboom chunka chunka chunka book vrrrmmm



somethin like that , lol

good luck
