When playing the Unikong game, I found another gun-based bug similar to this one. If you fire two shots at a troll in rapid succession, each shot will trigger 150 points. I believe the intended behavior is for each troll to be plugged once.

Granted, it's not enough to get you over a million rep, but as anyone who's ever worked at their respective "Exchange" account, every bit helps.

    Shooting them twice makes sure they're dead. No harm in wasting three laser rounds of ammo if you get four times the score. – Quill Apr 2 '16 at 4:29

    @AdamLear I guess a slightly more accurate tag would be status-dontcare – wythagoras Apr 2 '16 at 6:30
  • You can't change the question to something else like that. You reported this as a bug, got official reply as a bug. You can't all of a sudden change this into something else. This is valid bug report, that happen to be the intended behavior, that's it. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Apr 4 '16 at 11:03

    @Dykotomee Well, voting on meta is different. In this case it means people disagree this is a bug, I guess? – Joe Apr 4 '16 at 15:52
  • Yeah, I tried to understand that @Joe. I thought my question was well-worded, well-researched (I looked at other posts, etc.), but I guess the "perceived usefulness" is a factor too. Also, I suppose I should not be commenting on responses with 3 hours of sleep. – Dykotomee Apr 5 '16 at 12:07

I'm okay with rewarding the effort to make sure the trolls are well and truly dead with a bit of extra rep.

It's actually possible to shoot those pesky trolls more than twice, if you fire while moving down a ladder and manage to catch their falling carcass with a well timed series of extra shots. Example:

Before: (score = 4350)

After: (score = 5100)

Difference: minus one troll, plus 750 = 5 × 150 points. :)
