What weapon do you feel needs the most improvement aesthetically?


From the weapons we have seen so far, most of them at least look decent, if not pretty good. I am totally not trying to troll anyone, or insult anyone on the ps2 art team, but I feel like a lot of the weapons could use at least some slight tweaks. So which weapon would be your first priority if the devs decided to revise some of the weapons?

I'd say Cycler. Pulsar and Gauss look pretty good to me.

I dont really like insulting other peoples art, particularly when they have already been modeled and textured.

All i care about is seeing the Lasher, it will literally decide which faction i play as. Then i might have some complaints.

Cycler needs to look like it shits bullets. I don't get that feeling from its current look. Things like the drum magazine from PS1 and the two barrels really made it look like it shat bullets, with the sound of the gun meeting that expectation too.

PS2 cycler looks like a bland standard issue assault rifle with nothing special about it. I'd really like to see the return of the stacked barrels to emphasize that it really shits out bullets.

I agree with Malorn. Not only does it look very run of the mill, it also looks like it doesn't pack much of a punch. That would be okay if it looked like it could churn out bullets super fast, but as of currently it has neither.

I guess I'm the only one that likes the look of the ps2 cycler. I guess I wouldn't mind seeing the dual barrels and drum magazine come back. If they do redesign it they better keep the leather grip and most of the original body though.

I would choose to redesign the tempest. It looks like a box and seems like it would be way to heavy for an smg.

Cycler looks a bit too thin imo. I think the drum mag needs to come back as well, and give the Cycler ARV a double drum mag like the Jackhammer had.

Cycler. The receiver looks good, but the front trapezoidal shroud looks a bit awkward and makes the gun look like it would be creaky and prone to snagging on things. I would probably redesign it to be more streamlined; taking cues from modern European assault rifle designs.

If I am shooting you, the art wont matter. You'll be too dead for details.

How is it insulting to say that I don't think the cycler or pulsar look as good as the gauss which looks godly?

I personally like the look of it. Its not flashy by any means. But it fits the NC perfectly imo.

With that said, I believe the cycler needs the most look.

Cycling between two barrels, each compensating for the other in terms of recoil while allowing a higher rate of fire. That's at least what I thought the cycler was all about. High rate of fire with good recoil control.



^-- This is a cycler and it is awesome. Well done! It just looks like it shits bullets.



^--- This is not a cycler. This looks like an AR-15 with extra random plastic bits.


Two barrels is what sells it. PS2 cycler needs two barrels or it's just a pansy version of a Gauss rifle.
