We have gone through a few variation with our weapons artist in experimenting with various reloading mechanism and trying to inject some cool transforming features. It was a really fun process!

We finally went with one that has a fold open chamber to load a single charge of high caliber projectile. The gun collapses its barrel when inactive as a safety feature.

Our weapons modeller did an awesome job with the asset. From the available asset, our animator improvised the rig and animation to better showcase the reloading and transforming mechanism.

Railgun


This will be a single shot insta-kill weapon which we will be looking to insert as a in-game pickup item. Ammo will be very limited, so choose your targets wisely!

We are really pleased with how the Railgun turned out and really looking forward to implementing it into our next build.

Til next time! Cheers!

Awesome! Splendid! Beautiful! Your artist is simply a genius. The cannon opening for the weapon to shoot, I always thought something like that would fit perfectly a weapon like a railgun. And now you're implementing it to your game! And not only that, you also solved about the balance problem that this awesome weapon could cause in a simple yet effective way. The only "but" I see here is that a weapon with that power should be bigger, but that's just my opinion. Good luck!

Thanks! The team really did a great job on this. We were originally going for an even crazier idea but decided to keep it simple and functional, just like our other guns.

I do agree it should be bigger, and maybe even anchored to big power supply, ala Evangelion style, that would be pretty awesome

Can you make something like the GD-10 variable rifle from canceled game Tiberium? or the main gun used in Star Wars: The Republic Commando.

A sort of multi purpose rifle that you can switch parts around to change its functions. It seems you guys can make something like that with the quality of the weapons you've been showcasing us.

We have a similar idea for such a gun early in the design but have since decided not to proceed, for now. It is definitely a cool idea, a versatile weapon.

It's alright. Also I forgot though what type of game is this, a basic shooter like an arena, or some sort of RPG?

If you can shoot someone in the foot with this thing and still kill 'em... this is the frickin' Golden Gun. ;)
