    Anyone played both versions? What are your experiences with them? Which one do you prefer?

    My biggest issue with Sentry Robot is that he has only 2 usable weapons. But I like the look of the Sentry Robot more.

    I play the MIB88 Megamod. And use the setting to control my companions. But I use Markus's Minigun (he has the Avenger version, now) only very seldom.

    I would really like to know all the differences both between versions.

    As a Sentry bot skynet should also be proficient with vindicator minigun if You equip him with that and provide proper ammo.

    Vindicator avenger and CZ53 all share the same gun animation hence why it should be possible for Skynet (Sentry Bot) to use all three of them. It just might not be scripted so that he equips vindicator by party control dialogue tab (might be nessecary to equip it through inventory during it's combat turn).

    as for wich model is better it's hard to say I played brainbot skin in Fo2 and had that custom feel with security bot through 1.5 ressurection, so only aginst ghouls in power armor and custom critical tabels. I'm quite sure that gauss rifle is far better option aginst enclave troopers than CZ53 minigun, although if vindicator minigun could be used than both skin options would be good, with the vindicator beeing a slight winner i think.

    Hey guys, I have a question about/similar/somewhat related to this. I am playing Fallout2 with Restoration Project, and I cannot get Skynet to use any weapons. He has the cyber brain, and says that he can use various weapons (I can't remember all of them, but a shotgun is one of them), and I can't get him to use anything. Is this due to him actually only being able to use only 2 or possibly 3 guns?

    Have you checked his weapon preference?

    I have, but he wont use anything. I don’t know if it is a bug, or he only uses specifics, i.e. when he says shotgun, he means only one kind of shotgun. I switched him out for the soldier found at the EPA, so no biggie. I was mostly curious.
