I have never believed slingshots had a place in Armageddon and I wish they would all be changed to "slings".
There is one slingshot item in game that is described as using oiled vines that have somehow become elastic or some silly shit.
This makes about as much sense as that goofy ass foot-long arrow that's in the game.

I have had to un-teach Dennis The Fucking Menace Slingshot usage to my underlings at least THIRTY TIMES!!!
I can't tell you all of the names and sdescs of my underlings who stepped up to use a "slingshot" which is actually described as a sling....and they pull this silly shit....

I've actually had to OOC SEVERAL TIMES.....(and yes, I used these exact words every time, more or less)"Hey bud, just a heads up, that's just a wonky sdesc. That's actually a sling. Think David and Goliath, not Dennis The Menace.".
It's an easy fix and they have always fixed it every time, but come on....make it go away.
MAKE THE BAD MAN STOP!!! - (And please Tek take that foot-long arrow out. Whoever wrote that has never shot a bow in their life, which is fine. No offense. I've never worn a pair a of high-heels myself and so you will never catch me writing some up and putting them in the game because I know I don't know shit about it.)
Every time I see that slingshot and that arrow, I feel like this girl:
