This is a self-reloading, self-cocking miniature catapult. For the people. After you fire it, it returns to fire-ready position and loads another rock. You may wonder how that works, to which I can only reply "very well, thank you." It's a nasty little weapon for dealing damage, and can also be sung to "Hall of the Mountain King."

Hey, kids. Rock and roll. Nobody tells you not to hit for X damage, baby. BOOF! WHAMMO! ZOT!
If you believe you didn't hit for X damage, then nothing is cool. ZAP! BIFF! BOINK!
You fire five or six shots from your automatic catapult for X damage, feeling like a very lucky punk. POW! KERBLAM! BOINK!
You let loose a barrage from your automatic catapult, hitting it for X damage. WHAM! KAPOW! KERBLAM!
You try not to breathe as you fire a barrage from your automatic catapult for X damage. BONK! BONK! BOOF!

References

  • "Very well, thank you" is a reference to Mike Okuda, one of Star Trek's technical directors, answering the question "How does the Heisenberg compensator work?" with "Very well, thank you."
  • "For the people" refers to the 1992 R.E.M. album Automatic For The People. Several custom hit messages reference R.E.M. lyrics as well: "nothing is cool" is from "Man on the Moon"; "Hey, kids. Rock and roll. Nobody tells you not to" is from "Drive"; and "try not to breathe" is from, well, "Try not to Breathe".
  • Firing six shots from the catapult would allow you to tell Dirty Harry that you did, indeed, feel lucky (punk).
  • The words "automatic catapult" can indeed be sung to the tune of In the Hall of the Mountain King.
