Suppose the tracer bullets were shaped like civil war mini balls with concave or even hollow backs. Only someone with the goggles viewing the tracers from behind would be able to see them. Presumably, your enemy is mostly forward of your position so even with uv goggles they wouldn't see the tracers. Actually, with this arrangement, you wouldn't even need uv, regular phosphor dots would work just as well and not require any special equipment. Plus, with phosphor in the tracers, they become weapons themselves.
Hey Hey Hey no sneaking in the back, this is a mildly organised operation we got going on here. You just stay right there and Zinho will get round to issuing you your forum weapon. That will be the entirety of your orientation. Welcome to the forums!
@mesmorino: What, I stumble into the Armory and suddenly I'm the only one on duty? I'm pretty sure I'm not even on the roster for this post!
@Moosedr00l: Welcome to the forums! I have the honor of giving you your site orientation, I think by virtue of being the closest one to the entrance who didn't call "not it!" Let's get you a weapon issued. You're in luck, the bin for gnarled staves of topical necromancy
is empty; that's the traditional weapon issued to first-time posters replying to a 4-year-old thread. I think I've got just the thing for you, though. The Fondant Fountain of Cervidae Saliva
: this more closely resembles a grecian urn than a gun, but don't let looks fool you. Upon activation it superheats the contents of its fluid reservoir (preferred ammo: saliva from the Cervidae family of mammals, preferably Alces Alces
if available), then projects it onto your target, instantly melting whatever it hits on contact. Unfortunately, the process of superheating the reservoir to temperatures that will melt anything also, by necessity, melts the reservoir. The Fountain's body also ablates as part of the shaping action for the shot. Protective attire is recommended.
