I think there was a big 'forum fight' kind of thing over the minigun, and I think it's removed (as far as I remember at least)...and the M16 picture?

Thats...a cow or something, a cow that swallowed a giant M16 and then got painted.

well it's not an m16, really...

long story short:

until the dev crew issues any more OFFICIAL INFORMATION, there is no alternative to believing there will be american weapons in the game.

if the official info says they're in, and people think they're not, that's like saying "halo 2 trailers showed the master chief but i don't think he's going to be in the game!"

or "i saw the new resident evil trailer with the zombies, but i don't think the zombies are going to be in it when it's released!"

or "i saw swords in the ninja gaiden screenshots, but i don't think it's going to have any swords at all OR EVEN NINJAS!"


hahaha XD

Most of the firearms will be of Eastern origin, but GSC will also consider some Western ones. If you have really hi-res pictures that they can use as textures, don't hesitate to send them to prof@gsc-game.kiev.ua

I just hope that if they will gonna spent a pair of weeks to add one rifle more, it will not be a M16 or a M60 stuff.In Europe there are plenty of weapons that we never ever saw in any FPS, and i would like to see them included in the game instead of the ever-present american rifles.

Look , i have nothing against american rifles, but i would like to see new rifles....with all this vietnam games and new shooters coming out, mostly of them have m16 on them, i feel kinda bored to use that rifle.If they have to add an american weapon, it better be something never saw before.

I for one would like to see new weapons in a game. As long as the shoot right. I'ld be happy. I am an american. But I don't always have to have american weapons in a game. The M16 is getting boring as a theme weapon.

Just don't Hy-Brid port this game to console and I'll be happy. PC only release would be great. X-Box version later if really needed, wouldn't care cause I won't buy it anyway.

Eastern usually implies East Asian (as in Chinese and Japanese), so you might just want to go with East European or European or something.

We do all know that the guns are just polygons taking an artificial shape to resemble a realistic object, and do not necesarilly reflect that objects properties in (the case of firearms) ballistics, penetration, kinetic energy (and many other factors)....right?

If *really* don't want an M-16 in a game you can go into your game's file system and just switch it up with a new gun model (with Stalkers modification system this could be slightly more work, but you could still feasibly do it).

If the gun is the mainstay of many countries and special forces, it should be in the game because someone could come by it through theft, black market acquisition or other underhanded means.

(So, AK-74's, MP5 (probably A2), M-16s and maybe the G3 should all be in the game) M16s and AK74s are the mainstays of the two superpowers maintained in the games plot, so it would make sense for them to be there (whether you want to see them/use them/hear them/own them/break them or not).

Personally, I'm going to be using an SVD (or maybe an SVU, but I like how the SVD looks better, and the SVU is more of a SWAT (OMON) type weapon) and a Marakov/Tokarev (or a GSh if they're in there). That doesn't mean an M-16 shouldn't be in there [maybe I want to keep it as a prestigious trophy ].

[edit] spelling (I'm specail )

Actually, GSC [does use real world ballisctics penetration and kinetic energy based on real world data. Here's my source:
http://www.oblivionlost.deloo.de/en/index.php?site=newscomment.php&id=1012
And the exact quote:

---QUOTATION---

Full ballistics will be considered, that is the bullets speed, trajectory, ricochet, the piercing effect that is caused by the impulse

---END QUOTATION---



Besides that, this gun:

is not in the game anymore.

And this one:

Is actually an LR300 ML, a performance grade M4. It is american made but is still different from the usual all black M16. Emphasis on different

It's only fair shit. I know I hate clones and american weapons beside the M4, so either give me the original (somehow, maybe from a US military post) or don't give me anything.
