We've got three rubber bands on this guy, and still the shots just dribble out of it, sometimes not even making it all the way across the field. Is this thing working for other people?

It may help to double up one of the rubber bands rather than putting extra rubber bands on it.

That was a good idea, and we tried that tonight, but it still sucked.

I'm beginning to suspect that the point of this expansion is to create an arms imbalance which can only be corrected by the purchase of another expansion.

Its true, it sucks. We tried a few different methods & the conclusion is that it's useless. The double crossbow it comes with isn't much better either. Once my friend spent a lot of turns driving the gun right up to my castle entrance, only to watch 5 shots limp out with the force of a fly's fart. Skip this expansion.

I swore up a storm many many times with the gun. I put an extra rubber band on it and it worked good. I put two on it and it was shooting the discs across the room. What I found to help was always have the gun fully loaded. Don't shoot it unless it has discs to the brim. The discs won't scatter around and jam up the gun. I hope this works for everyone.

The unique feature of the gatling gun is that it can shoot twice, each time in a different direction. It is the only weapon in the game that can do this. Sure, it's lousy on accuracy and range, but it's the best when you're up close and want to take out 2 targets that aren't lined up.

The gatling gun is also large and heavy, making it a good shield.

I use house rules that make moving weapons a more viable option, which makes getting short range weapons like the gatling gun in range a lot easier.
