Ok can some-one explain what's so fun about standing around firing 'lobbers, pounders and air bursts' while I'm trying to shop? Seriously.... it happened at every fast-travel 'stop and shop' yesterday.
BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM Gawd it's driving me CRAZY!!!!

I noticed that as well that at certain vendors there is always a few people doing so, like wtf
Also noticed most locations that there are people just standing near the entrance as if they are on guard.
Some weirdos on Defiance, lol

They're probably just testing their weapons before they decide whether to keep or sell them. Some of the different brands and types of weapons will work in weird ways that are not immediately obvious from the stats and descriptions.

Azz clowns.

I saw a group line up and start honking their horns non-stop. I think it was in response to the kid BOOM BOOMing everybody.

It annoys people, hence why it is done.

It's how people say hello, since the chat is garbage.

Anyone else read the title in a reggae voice? To answer your question why not? Can it really be that annoying?

You know what's better than BOOM BOOM?

VROOM VROOM in circles tooting your horn and boosting as much as possible while people are shopping.

I know I do it to see how a certain weapon differs from others I have. The Tooltips suck at giving good discripitions on the various weapons.

But I'm also not firing them non-stop either, i fire a couple rounds to get a feel for the weapon and either keep it or vendor it. I'm also not firing it at the vendor, I usually aim at a close building to see the shot pattern or burst spray.

There's also a bug that while you're in the shopping screen that the explosion sound bytes can collectively go off at the same time which is annoying.

But other than that I cant help but think of the Black Eyed Peas from the title of the thread.

Is this the new annoying thing to do? I got to remember that weapon then. :)

Some are out to annoy others, whether it's off loading weapons next to vendors constantly or driving round and round Arkfalls in their fancy vehicles. You just got to try and ignore it for now, not everyone cares about others in this game just like in the real world.

Best is when you can clearly tell they have turtle beach headset, boom boom BOOM. xD

Combat shotgun which fires grenades + overcharge so you dont have to reload, watch the shops scatter
