In the beginning of Cave Story, Quote finds his first gun, the Polar Star, in the Gunsmith's chest. But where did Curly get her Machine Gun? Did she have it when she woke up with Colons? Did the Colons give it to her? Is there another gunsmith somewhere in the Sand Zone?

Or maybe she had it with her the entire time, as quote and curly were military robots, designed to destroy the demon crown.

That's what I meant when I said she had it when she woke up with the Colons.

Would this mean that Quote originally had a machine gun as well? Considering that he woke up with no weapon whatsoever.

Well, they're different types of robots I think so maybe they would want to give them different weaponry? I don't know...

Maybe Quote dropped his in the battle before he lost his memory? If you look at official Cave Story art, Curly has a bunch of stuff attached to her pants. Maybe she attached her Machine Gun but Quote couldn't, so he dropped his after getting knocked out.

Perhaps in their first attempt to destroy the Demon Crown, Quote and Curly both used Machine Guns. It's a fairly powerful, straightforward, generic no-nonsense kind of gun, so it might be standard equipment or something to that effect. The other guns in the game except for the Missile Launcher (maybe itself a leftover of the war?) are all either rather exotic or mostly gimmicky, so I can see the two using Machine Guns during the war. Considering Curly seemingly started out in a much better position than Quote after they lost, it's plausible that she woke up still with her Machine Gun. Quote probably lost his in whatever happened to have him sealed in a cave with no HP, weapons, items or memories.

It was probably standard military issue or something. This brings up a whole new question though...where did Quote's gun go?

This is the best theory yet.


Maybe someone could email Pixel to find out what he had in mind? But that would probably just be a waste of his time. Meh.

Yes i agree. He probably gets enough junk mail from people who want to know theories. He probably doesn't even care about them anymore or respond to them.

The problem is that he does respond to them. It kinda destroys the whole point of making theories if we have Pixel making decisions because one person wanted validation in their beliefs.

Okay I give up... for now

I as well will have to urge you not to ask Pixel.

For me personally, the problem isn't so much that, as it is that Pixel's responses are most likely made on the spot and don't have much thought put into them.

Ok, first you got a youtube channel called HaydenStudios, that must be you.
And this is the most unlike place i've seen you before: Lego mindstorms.

Sorry for off topic, just wondering.

Because it hasn't been said in the game, no one can know for sure.

I believe that since Curly is a military robot, she used it in the war. Quote lost his gun during the war so he couldn't get a weapon until he found the Polar Star. Since the polar star wasn't complete, if you go back to the man with boosters, he will finish the gun and give you the spur.

I think it's because that Curly had a MG and Quote had a ML.
Quote went to go get some more missles, but they were out.
He discarded the useless weapon and went to go get a Machine Gun.
Halfway through, the events of the game screwed up Quote's quest
to get a machine gun and that's why.
