My inspiration for this effect at the time was the UT3 spawn effect, which is similar to this.
In UT3 it's easy to do it through a material or even a shader, but in UT99 I remember having to painstakingly create each frame by hand in MS Paint, which was quite some work but I got happy with the final result (I could have generated it through a script, but at the time I wasn't that well versed with that sort of thing).
Having that said, I never thought this to be something people might have wanted to use in regular weapon spawns as a standalone mod.
Volatile ammo entered the chat.
