- "This gun is called the BMFBFBMFG. But his friends call him Clarence."
- —In-game description.
The Raven is a gatling gun appearing in Shadow Warrior 2.
Raven is the last word in More Dakka approach in the whole game. Only Zweihänder has equal vanilla rate of fire, and it`s clip is only 3/5 of what Raven has.
Unfortunately, that firepower comes with the heaviest movement penalty price tag - whopping 30%. That complicates it`s use - quick swarming enemies can quickly overrun and surround minigunner.
A viable strategy in open space is to use doublejump and airdash out of envelopment, as necessary. Use of natural obstacles such as ravines and height advantage adds much to this weapon.
- Weapon is probably modeled after M134 Minigun.
- Description makes reference to BFG from DOOM series - or, more precisely, reference to a popular decryption of acronym as "Big Fucking Gun".
- "Raven" is likey a reference to Vulcan Raven, a boss from Metal Gear Solid who fights using a minigun.
