I think that you're mistaking the title topic for the conversation at hand. Maybe you should think about reading a thread before replying to it. Thanks.

But by the almighty God of Darkness!!!!
Who the FU¤K cares what weapon they are useing?!?!
Once your in the game you'll wont see the difference.
You'll still search for the best weapon, whatever it's Russian, American, German, Australian, Ukranian, Belgian or whatever!!!!!

I'm still going to use the best Sniper rifle, Assault rifle, Gun, Blow-the hell-out-of-whatever-you-like-weapon!!!!!

OK, you may now continue your meaningless babbeling.

maybe he did not reply in an appropriate way because he is a cheap australian, without the idioms and the semantic knowledge of foreign languages like an austrian has...

reasons why there are so few american guns and how to get them if you want them.

rember that to put every gun a preson could want in stalker would be hell for the development team.
the game is set in a former sovet country so there is going to be an abundence of sovet wepons on hand.
like the ak47.

so far the calabers listed on the site are.
9mm
12 guage shotgun
7.62x54 mm (svu)
9x18 markov
7.62x39 mm ak47
5.56x45 mm NATO
40 mm granade

these callabers could easley be expected to be found in the Ukraine.
as most are sovet, and european / nato (9x19mm has been used since ww2) with the sovet ammo being more common. all calabers used are used by multipul wepons.

what would be an common to find is rounds like .45 an 44mannum.

but wepons like this could be intergrated in to the game by. the following.
the site says that the stalker is going to have a home out of the zone.
there he could take missions offerd by other goverments / companys. with equipments being part of payment. or given in advance for exepting a mission.

from the list there of weapons on the site there is no highpowerd hand gun, submachine gun or pump/auto shotgun. or bolt action rifle. to fill some gaps in the wepon catogories.

i would like to see these added a .357 or .44 mangum revolver (high power close up no desert eagels are good guns but a bit to tempramental)
there power offset by the slower reload time and hard to source ammo
and a sub machine gun to get more use from 9mm ammo. mainley to add more ballence to game play. i personley like the sniper rifle and shotgun combo with a highpowerd hand gun for those real tough enimes.

there would feasably be american "stalkers" in the zone with american guns working as mersineries or cia.

It would be cool if American weapons did make it into the game, then we could kill Americans with their own guns in game, just like half the real world does.

Here's what this thread has been able to establish:
-x5060 knows alot about guns
-some other people don't
-M4, M16, LR300 all use the same reciever
-People either give a crap or don't

Here's my two cents, the game takes place in Ukraine and because of that having primarily Eastern European firearms such as AK47/74 would make sense. Sure it wouldn't be either impossible or improbable that US made weapons could make it into the game based on desire for the quality of manufacturing. But It also could make sense that you see nothing but Russian weapons with a few other European guns thrown in there. Simply because there is an AK47 for every six other firearms in the world. They are cheap(we're talking pocket money if you find the right bazaar, reliable, extremely numerous, easy to take care of, and are comfortable to handle.

All I'm saying is that its possible for a US firearm to find its way to the former Soviet Union, but logistically AKs make a lot more sense. And from a game developer's standpoint Russia has enough "cool" guns to fill a dozen such games.

Yes but it would be irrational and quite wierd if they excluded european / us guns totally. I mean the year is 2012 its propbably the heightpoint of globalization. The zone is an international cesspool of intreset , organizations seeking to uncover secrets , militarys, agencies, stalkers and all kinds of people there. Besides not everybody wants to see those old-fashioned wooden buttstocks. And who says that the dealers cant have "Contacts" from the outside world? Who smuggle some of those expensive assault rifle beautys. I'd say the developers should atleast put in 1-3 non-soviet rifles. Not every stalker needs cheap stuff, the succesfull stalkers have a right to fancy some of those exotic rare rifles.

I highly doubt (given the creatures in the zone) stalkers are going to be jumping on the opportunity to grab a US issue M-16a2 that is a .22....hell, I'd definitely be in favor of the larger caliber AK's and the larger caliber pistols as well. America hasn't fielded large caliber weapons for a long time now. It wouldn't make sense or be practical given what you're hunting...or being hunted by.

Yeah, it would make sense if they sold something like modern civilian hunting rifles like they sell in Russia, there's this semi-auto G-36 variant rifle that fires a .223 and I've seen 7.62 conversions in a store. There should be foreign rifles, but not too many of them. It's nice that jamming is in, because the AK isn't the best rifle in the world when it comes to accuracy and firepower, but at least it is really reliable. I hope that actually means something in the game.
