The SDF special should be in Ice Secret. But I can't find it anywhere? I do get the dual laser, but thats also a mystery, cause I don't see the icon appearing :S I just pick it up every time, where ever I am on the screen at that moment.
Yeah... that happened to me too. I usually snag the SDF Main Gun. (What an SDF is, I don't know...) But I downloaded Tyrian from somewhere and the powerup wasn't at the end of the level like it usually is. I don't remember where I got that copy from.
I would say redownload Tyrian from a new source or something. If the problem is still there I honestly don't know what the deal is.
The SDF thing is weird. I'm not sure, but I remember doing some investigation and, while it was on the original Tyrian 2.1, there was a bug that prevented it from happening. It only shows up in Tyrian2k, I think.

You know I've always wondered what weapons actually do more damage than others.
For example, it's been brought up that the laser is better than the Zica laser... but which one actually does more damage? For example, and it's been a while since I used the Zica laser because of the noise, but I think that it takes Zeppelins down faster than the standard laser. Also how strong *IS* the SDF main gun as compared to other weapon systems?
Does anyone have a list of the weapons at full power and how much damage they do?
I believe the SDF Main Gun is stronger since, like the Plasma Storm, it ignores walls and indestructible objects as it plows straight through them.
I usually prefer a multi directional Rear Gun for assistance. I like the Guided MicroBombs since they fire in eight directions and home in on enemies, and I like the Rear Mega Pulse since it explodes into multiple bullets into different directions upon impact with a target or object...
And I've also been working with the NortShip Super Pulse and NortShip Spreader (the one with the red bullets) lately too; those small red Mega-Pulse like bullets release a Level 11 Star Burst explosion once they hit. I got the CompanionShip QuickSilver (the Lightning Gerund sidekicks you normally get when Playing the Nortship Z special mode), of which the right one has been replaced with the BattleShip Class FireBomb. And then with the Astral Zone with it...
