    On why Haste is no one's favorite rune:

    QuadRaptor: It just burns ammo quickly.

    http://www.quakeone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4

    I've always thought the haste rune sucks too.

    How many times have you had haste again a superior opponent, shot 50 rockets at him/her and they still lived and you didn't hit nothing and either they shot you, you ran out of ammo and retreated or in your "haste", shot the wall, killing yourself.

    And the worst case scenario, team damage is on and you killed all your friends.

    Haste is an anti-rune!

    Yeah haste is a rune the seems great on paper, but just sucks in practice. True it burns through ammo, but also, the skill you must master for being an RL rapist is timing. So for me it doesn't help cause to be good with RL I have to use the timing I'm used to, rather than just holding down the button.

    One nice thing R00k added on his ctf pub server (quake.intertex.net) is that which haste your can run and hook a bit faster, which is very useful in ctf.

      I'm actually quite good with haste. With the rapid-fire, you just annihilate them, direct hit with almost every shot...

              Haste is an excellent rune to have on a packed Runequake server. Grab haste, lots of ammo, and toss time bombs in a full room. The timebombs explode super quick with haste so you'll definately rack up some frags. Key to this is a packed server. Same with BFGs. BFGs fire out super fast with haste

                  I never use time-bombs and BFGS, they never seem to work out for me. I always forget to use them anyway.
