Normally miniguns just sound like regular guns. With this mod, they can sound like Top Gun(s). Yes, I went there, and I'm not sorry. Not even a little bit.

The second bullets start flying, however, Loggins' vocals soar high into the sonisphere, like something other than a plane because that would be too obvious.

It is goofy. It is great.

The Heavy Loggins mod was inspired by Sekti42's smooth jazz minigun, which is also pretty special:
