I'd also invest in an encephalon to multi task those cognitive needs - it
can't be easy concentrating on two different smartlink cross hairs.
By the way, has anyone explained why smartlinks changed from first ed? In
1st ed they were a flashing crosshairs which went solid when the gun was
pointing in the same direction as the cross hairs, in 2nd ed the smartlink
has a spot which shows where the gun is currently pointing.
The 2nd ed version is better in that it allows people to make shots at
things in peripheral vision. The 1st ed would be easier to use though I
imagine as you can more naturally focus your vision on where you want to
hit and then wait for the cross hairs to stop flashing, rather than having
to line up the 'spot' of the gun's facing with where you are focusing.
