    Yup, I'm participating too.. I don't know much about modeling but I'm learning as I go along.

    I'm making weapons/items for the sniper... obviously.
    Currently making my double barreled, bolt action sniper rifle (yes, they exist)

    I used the original rifle as a reference, but every single polygon was created by me!

    And so far I have a hat done!

    Anyway. I need names for these! I suck at naming, and also coming up with stats.. I just don't have that kind of imagination :)
    Luckily that isn't a requirement in the actual contest.


    I record and stream my modeling sessions via livestream. Mostly for my own sake but you are welcome to watch! They should be available in the on-demand library.

    (warning: the 2 most recent ones have terrible audio! my bad)

    Any suggestions are welcome. I'm a noob modeler and take any advice you can give.

    Ooooh! Very nice! Be sure to put smoothing groups on that scope! Also, that hat reminds me of Gaz from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare <3

    What sort of stats are you gonna give it?

    edit: Oh, must have accidently skipped that sentence...

    You could bring back the "leg damage" de-buff from TFC. Sniping someone in the leg reduced their speed by Like 50% or something like that for a short period. It could be a bullet for each knee cap :p the rifle only does 150 head shot damage regardless of charge but shooting people in the knee caps/somewhere in the leg slows their movement by X% for X seconds or something.

    My thought was take 2 shots before reloading but after each shot the scope flails around (more recoil)

    I.E.
    100% Increased Clip Size
    75% More Recoil

    I still don't see the point of a double barrel rifle :p Just go with a two-shot burst /nods

    25% more damage on headshot. (187 damage)
    (will kill all classes on headshot with exception of Soldiers and Heavies.)
    No charging. (multiple shots required to kill Heavies and Soldiers)
    Has 4 magazines each containing 5 rounds. - (Need to reload after each 5 shots.)

    Edit: mini crits on headshot.

    -> "Dat Owlruler: is it just me or does blob not know that rifle shots already crit on headshot?"

    Edit again: Owly's bullied me. -> More damage on headshot. - 187 damage per headshot. (25% more)

    That rifle needs to be called "The Professional".

    Just sayin'.

    It's shaping up nicely too btw.

    EDIT: Much though I'd love to see one like this with iron-sights that scope looks boss too.

    Also found this thread about an unidentified double barrel rifle that looks mean, thought it might serve as a good detailing reference.

    Oh, actually it turns out that both of the above links are guns designed by Fuchs & Szecsei. And no, I didn't make that name up. :lol:

    EDITx2: you couldn't make this stuff up! http://www.fuchs-fine-guns.com/

    If you're wondering about stats, maybe you could make it not have to charge up inbetween the two shots, only for the first.

    Fuck, those mechanics are all boring.
    Make it have two laser dots a small distance apart in the scope, each representing a bullet's end point. Then give the gun a -40% damage nerf... if you're closer you can get two shots in on 1 head, fuck yeah, but it also gives you a bit more room when leading (as you essentially have 2 points on which to connect with each shot, you can afford to lead a little quickly with the right dot and the left bullet may still hit)

    The Simple Man's Suppressor for the hat.

    I don't see why Mangy's getting uppity about the rifle stats. They seem pretty interesting to me. Maybe you can fire two shots with no bolt or unzoom, at the cost of high recoil after each and a longer bolt time.

    -25% damage done
    Can shoot both under one charge
    25% longer charging time**

    I dunno really. maybe each barrel's bullet would do different damage.

    I think it's fun reading all these suggestions :)
    Still can't come up with a name for the hat though.

    I was thinking of "Sportsman's Blasting Cap"
    Though I'm not sure, since a blasting cap is actually something completely different!
