RFB as the SDAR looks weird
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Replace the model for the SDAR and make it something based on a real underwater rifle. Use the Kel Tec RFB model currently used for the SDAR as a new DMR for the Green Army faction.

I am not a fan of using the RFB as the underwater rifle - it's not an underwater rifle. It's not even a 5.56mm rifle - currently it only comes in 7.62 NATO.

However I somehow doubt it will be changed after all the effort that was put into it.

Effort? All I'm saying take the SDAR model, add some rails, make it a DMR, then you could use maybe an APS Underwater rifle model, just modify it to use the games 5.56 dual purpose and STANAG mags.

Pic of APS rifle:

It's not throwing away "all the effort that was put into it."

It's just using it's model to make a Green Army unique DMR which isn't present currently, and it allows the SDAR to have a more authentically appropriate model. Even if they changed the model they could still use the same code and ballistics. Swapping models isn't terribly involved, just ask any competent modder.

would a speargun for combat divers somehow make sense?

No, I don't think it would.


i have another suggestion:
Make the Kel Tec RFB a "normal" land weapon, which can accept all attachment.
Then make some special attachments that transform the RFB into an underwater weapon: For example a special barrel-attachment that is needed to fire the supercavitating ammo or special underwater-sights, that would be like the back-up-sights but bigger and more open.

this way you would have the nice RFB as realistic land weapon, which could be tranformed for underwater combat, giving it more of a scifi-underwater-gun-look in the process.

what do you think?

Good ideas twistking, although I think the game is a bit too late in development for them. :(

Mass closing ancient tickets with no activity for > 12 months; assume fixed or too trivial.

If this issue is still relevant in current dev build, please re-post.
