Me and some players want this. Launches sheep with the mandatory "beeh" noises and increases the weight of the ship it hits(reducing lift).

I really like the idea of a thing that increases weight of another ship. How would you remove the weight once it was attached? Hit the sheep with a wrench?

It should have a different animal sound for each ammo type.

I like it, but it needs to be a duck gun instead. The Mallard Cannon.
