Anyway, I am currently going through my games I bought during the holiday sells and hopefully, by the time I'm done with them, the expansion will have gone down in price or someone will inform me that it's worth the price and I need to stop crying.
In this case, reporting someone with a gun, or a big gun would have been perfectly fine. 911 personnel would have run through a few questions to identify the gun and threat level. Saying a general term if you don't know the specific is a perfect way to convey the message, but if you use a specific term as a generality, well lets just say the people might not react the way you wanted them to.
Here's a little something that happened TWICE yesterday as I was playing through the game:
I enter a room with cubicles and 4 hostiles that aren't aware of my presence. I shoot to kill one of them and take cover behind a wall (room was shaped in L form). At that time I hear the hostiles saying "Flush him out".
*grenade lands somewhere*
As I turn the corner, I notice all 3 remaining hostiles are dead. And this isn't a 1 time fluke, the next room had hostiles and they heard the gunfire, they launched a grenade at the closed door, which bounced back in their face.
2 rooms cleared, 1 bullet used. My main weapon: Crappy AI
