Wiki Heavy Weapons Guy

![Heavy Weapons Guy](http://classicfortress.net/images/hwguy.png "Heavy Weapons Guy") The Heavy Weapons Guy (or simply HWGuy) is a defensive player that can do a massive amount of damage and kill just about any class in the matter of tenths of seconds. He might be slow, even slower while firing his [Assault Cannon](Assault-Cannon), which may take a second before actually starting to fire. But once it does, nothing in its path will survive.
