Someone slap together a history section for riflemen... a few ideas: Start with some sort of war quote, include the development of automatic weapons during period X (Great Empire Era, maybe?), superiority of BE rifles during cold war (homage to 1.00 to 1.06ish BEAR), addition of mobile assault vehicles as technology advanced(i.e. APC spawn reference), and how balanced the weapons are during the current BE-NF conflict (1.08 reference). Maybe a shout-out to a clan, CW, On-E or other (not JPL, FB, or Bruck, they're mentioned already) in the form of story "heroic soldier X from battalion Y killed 8 dozen infantry!" that also demonstrates how the rifleman class can out-shoot all other infantry units. If someone could include a selection from the short stories that Megel or Picard or other ppl wrote (idk what they are) that would be good, too. If no one makes this within about a week, I'll probably have something by then. Once all the class sections have histories, I'll pm them to Megel and ask for his opinion/input/proper alteration to match canon materials.--The Buttery Lobster 00:35, 5 July 2007 (EDT)

If anyone has any ideas for Rifleman section, i.e. another clan history, put it in discussion so I know what to write about. idk any of the clan histories, so it's I can't do much without some background info. Or maybe some sort of reference to... well, whatever you can think of, Empires related. Changing forums three times, for example. Maybe mentioning certain villainous characters in the community... they who shall not be named.--The Buttery Lobster 19:48, 5 July 2007 (EDT)

Well, ummm, CW had 1 member for about 3-4 months. Not really interesting at all. Hmmm... --Arklansman 21:51, 5 July 2007 (EDT)

I bolded the skills to make them stand out a little more. Anyone disagree?--Knighttemplar 09:48, 2 August 2007 (EDT)

Does the rifelman sticky do 300 damage, or 150? or 200? I thought it was nerfed slightly in a hotfix or RC 30.--69.245.241.248 08:39, 8 November 2007 (PST)

It does 150 normally. It does 300 to vehicles (except the CV) when stuck to them. Krenzo 14:14, 9 November 2007 (PST)
