I'm pretty sure the translocator actually is included in UT3 now... I read something about it having a lower but shorter trajectory recently, and a faster reload time. Also, there's not actually a description of the hoverboard on this page! --IceCreamYou, 22:40, July 24 2007 (EDT)

The translocator is definitely in. You can see it in several videos, although people have been confusing it for a ripper. --Haarg 23:08, 24 July 2007 (EDT)


Funny how Steve Polge refers to himself in the third person. :) Anyway, is the "B" really capitalized in "Hover(b/B)oard"? Retodon8 18:02, 30 October 2007 (EDT)

Should be lower case. I'll have to dig out that quote to see who said it. --Haarg 19:44, 30 October 2007 (EDT)


The hoverboard doesn't really qualify as a weapon, I don't think. Tahngarthor 20:22, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

(I think there was a quick bit of talk about this here before, but it got deleted during the database problem period.) No, the Hoverboard isn't really a weapon from a gameplay perspective. It is however selectable as such, just like the Translocator and Ball Launcher. That alone is reason to qualify it as such. It's not technically a vehicle, but it does allow you to go faster, and it works well in tandem with real vehicles, so it can still be classified as a vehicle... or rather be put in the vehicle category. Planets in the Unreal Universe obviously isn't a planet, but it should still be in the Planets category. That's my opinion anyway. :) Retodon8 08:09, 22 March 2008 (EDT)
To revive this discussion a bit... a weapon, by default, would be useable as an actual weapon. The translocator fits the role, because besides teleporting it can actually kill people. I've never seen anyone being killed by a hoverboard - in fact, running into someone while you're on your hoverboard usually knocks you off. I'm removing it from the weapon template, as a result. --Dark Pulse 23:10, 15 February 2009 (EST)
Your point has some flaws, however. Have you seen anyone being killed by a Ball Launcher? ;) However, the hoverboard is obviously not a weapon, it's a semi vehicle. In my opinion, a weapon is something you hold in your hand that can fire, not necessarily do damage. --GreatEmerald 11:19, 17 February 2009 (EST)
