For millennia orksih philosophers have debated whether one can have too much dakka, while conventional wisdom is 'of course not ya stinkin git!' some do argue against this.

in m23 the great orkish thinker Smartgitz Big'Ead perposited that if half the matter in the universe were used to make a single gun, and that gun was used to shoot the other half of the universe, then the requirements would be met for enough dakka. He was refuted by his colllegue Finky PlaDakka who changed those figures to 99.99 repeating % of matter shooting a single gretchin.

The argument lasted twenty minutes before breaking into a fist fight (the longest verbal argument in orksih philosophical history up until that point). When the smoke cleared, both orks were fine red mists, proving that while one can never have enough dakka, one can have 'sufficient' dakka to erradicate a single target.

The lesons learned that day were promtly forgotten, and in the next campaign the local warboss expended the majority of his ammunition on a single nob for questioning his orders to blow up the planet they were fighting on.

If every piece of matter in the universe formed to become a giant gun (or trillions of smaller guns), would that be too much dakka?

While admirable, one key thing to note is that not all Orks 'loot'. Deathskulls are the most prominent looters. But Goffs are very proud traditionalists who prefer the 'orky' way of doing things (hitting it a few times, and a few more if it gets back up). Meanwhile the Snakebites eschew technology altogether. And Bad Moons don't exactly 'loot', but rather 'get paid' for their mercenary work.

So while I'm all down for looting the universe, making a giant anti-universe gun, and blowing the fuck out of other universes (to then loot), I get the distinct feeling that the Deathskulls won't be coming to power anytime soon.

Dakka is not an end. Dakka is a means to an end.

The end being "shooten at 'fings an watchen 'em blow 'up".

So no, turning the universe into dakka is not enough dakka, because if the universe is dakka, including the observer, who will watch the dakka?

Who will SHOOT the dakka?

More importantly, who will the dakka be shot at??

If dakka cannot be observed shooting at something and blowing it up, then is it truly dakka in the first place? If it is not dakka in the first place, then it clearly is not enough dakka, it is in fact negative dakka, it decreases the amount of dakka in the universe by in very presence.

Ok, so red makes things go faster, correct?

Now, what if everything in the universe was red? Relatively to everything else red, it's moving at the same speed, but relative to space-time, it's going faster. So in order for light to retain its speed relative to matter, light gets stretched out, thereby Red-shifting it.

Is light faster?

only if you added some choppy.

orky philosophy posits an existential duality in which one is always striving to satisfy two tangentially-related yet partially exclusive core values, represented by their twin deities, Gork & Mork; choppy and dakka, kunnin' and brutality, krumpin' and buildin', etc. since it is impossible to satisfy both 100% in a given situation, the ork mind instead seeks a balance.

as such, no gun could be so dakka that adding a bit of choppy wouldn't also improve it. similarly, there is no choppy so perfect that it would not benefit from added dakka. in order to krump 'arder, one must first build something with which to destroy. the better the creation process, the more effective its destructive capabilities. this dualism embodied by Gork and Mork is identical to the dualism found in every rank-and-file ork; within each ork there is the potential for great dakka, as well as great choppy. they do not pick a single path and follow it to an extreme, like the eldar, but instead balance the two, treading a line between two extremes, and in the process, provides us with our answer in the form of another question:

can Gork make a gun so dakka, that Mork would not try to add choppy to it?

the answer is no.

The should make some ridiculous rate-of-fire guns in the next Ork codex... But sadly, we'll probably get Ward who dislikes Orks and makes each unit incapable of doing anything on a 1 or 2 every turn; or we'll get Phil Kelly again who will just treat them as 'more savage Eldar' once more and make rokkits str 7.

On a really bad end, we'll get Jervis... and everything will just be 'Walker vehicle', 'truck-vehicle', or 'battlewagon', and be encouraged to just 'counts-as' everything that falls outside of those parameters (i.e. Epic:A).
