I would say that for the Disk Launcher, a random disk is loaded each time it's fired, out of each of the eight default types. So basically, this:Each disk has three stats: its "Metru" power (which adds to the default), its "regular" power (of the default eight only), and its power level (which determines something different depending on power. Disks themselves have a small HP value, which can be canceled out in midflight by a strong enough attack.Metru:1. Ta-Metru: Deals more damage regardless of disk type, can obilerate other projectiles in flight2. Ga-Metru: Curves to track foes or other potential targets.3. Po-Metru: Homes in on other projectiles and cancels them out.4. Ko-Metru: Swerves into the background to avoid any hitbox powerful enough to destroy it in one hit.5. Le-Metru: Longer range.6. Onu-Metru: Instead of being canceled out by an attack, will return to the user in a boomerang-like fashion the first time it is hit.Powers:1. Reconstitutes at Random: ...2. Freezes: Will freeze the target. Power levels 1-4 have a chance of not freezing, power levels 7-8 freeze for longer amounts of time.3. Weakens: Target's power temporarily reduced. Levels 1-3 will reduce it by one for about ten seconds, 4-6 by one for about thirty, and 7-8 will reduce it by two points for around thirty seconds.4. Removes Poison: When fired, any poison on the target or the firer is cured. Still inflicts damage as normal despite its otherwise beneficial effect.5. Enlarges: Essentially inflicts the effect of a Mask of Growth on the target for a certain amount of time. Target's Dexterity is reduced as long as the disk is active.6. Shrinks: Inflicts the effect of the Mask of Diminishment on the target for a certain amount of time (increases with higher power levels). The target's strength is reduced as long as the disk is active.7. Regenerates: Does not heal the target, but instead refills a bit of their weapon, armor, and masks' "break meters."8. Teleports: Teleports the target to a random location within a certain area. Area increases with higher power levels.I was thinking that the "weapon activate" button might be "reload," which switches out the current disk (visible in the HUD) for another one after a short animation.So yeah, a lot of coding... but it would be amazing to use.

Time is beyond relative here.

There's no reason not to put lasers in the palms of planet-sized robots. In fact, if I had my own planet-sized robot, palm lasers would be one of my first upgrades.
May or may not be back from a multi-year hiatus. We'll see how this works out...
