Powertech Goofy Laughter

In PVP matches I noticed Powertechs doing a weird and very annoying Goofy-like laughter, goes like "ÜgÜgÜgÜg" with the pitch rising. Is this supposed to be funny or is it a certain skill?

Just wondering as it annoys the hell out of me - psychological warfare maybe.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause-of-effect...but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly...timey-wimey...stuff.

And that Goofy laughter is supposed to be a railgun!?

Oh well, I guess in a game where having planes as shoulder pads is normal that's ok as well. It's a fun game, but I really don't get such (sound) design decisions.

it used to be really bad early in the game, every class had some stupid laugh that got triggered in pvp. It was like constant laughter. Hopefully the dev who came up with that one, was one of the ones EA fired.

No, that would be stupid. The chuckle is the what happens when the railshot cooldown resets. Hence the comment that you're about to get hit by another one. It's not the ACTUAL railshot.

... The laugh is from a crit. It has always come from crits. Operatives have it as well.

No, When a Powertech laughs is when their railshot procs(aka resets)so it mean your about to get smashed for 4.5k

Pretty sure it has nothing to do with crit. As others have stated it is the sign that railshot has become available again via proc. Operatives/scoundrels no longer have a laugh. They used to do a giggle when they gained a stack of upperhand via proc but the devs removed it. Why they removed it and let the vanguard/pt laugh remain though is a mystery...

Edit - sorry i screwed the quote up as typing on stupid tiny mobile screen.
