View Full Version : Custom weapons for the Xbox version?!?!
01-14-2005, 01:04 PM
As much as many of us really want this, Iââ‚¬™m thinking itââ‚¬™s in. Why is that?
Look at the screenshots of the weapons from ign. You will notice that the UMP is pictured with a suppressor as another screenshot shows the same weapon without one. Has Ubi and Red Storm finally answered our prayers for the console versions?!?! I sure hope so! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I have another bit of analysis I've picked up from the screen shots. I have been seing a lot of bare weaver rails on the weapons so that would lead me to believe that there will be optics customization.

Being able to customize your weapons like that in Raven Shield would be a sure fire way to pick up a sale on my behalf.
This was one of my biggest complaints with Black Arrow -after all the requests, complaints, and pleadings, we got a sniper rifle of all things.

I think that option is going to be implemented if I read correctly
02-07-2005, 09:25 AM
Yeah. youve got to be right cause the mp5 in the screenshots doesnt have a scope. this does look better but doesnt seem like something that a proffesional wouldnt have available!

what about picking up weapons off of terrorists?
02-17-2005, 11:01 AM
Don't hold your breath guys. While that would be an awesome selling point for the game, it may not be the case at all. Before the release of Black Arrow there were several screenshots and movies on IGN.com that featured the M-8 futuristic design rifles. They were in use and you could even see them shooting it on the maps. They did not make the weapons list for Black Arrow although they did
appear on Ghost Recon 2. So everyone made a very logical assumption that they would be in the final build of the game and were nowhere to be found.

I agree. Never bought the game after the huge disappointment with that 12 page thread asking our opinions for new weapons. I read an interview at gamespot with one of the Lockdown developers today that they're listening to their gamers with this one. They always say this but I have never seen any suggestions from these forums emplemented. What the heck???

if time is any testament to ubi dont expect anything they say or show in the videos

I'd like to see even more customization options for Lockdown than Raven Shield had, but I guess people in Hell want ice water. You know that America's Army's M4 SOPMOD has 3 different kinds of scopes to choose from? Why can't Ubi do something like that?
02-22-2005, 01:07 PM
Uhh, I might not be right, but judging from the pictures, it just looks like you can choose between an M4 with a scope of some kind, and an M4CQB with flip-up rear sights; not an M4 with or without a scope. I'd be cool with that though too. Better than all kinds of guns no one uses.
And for what it's worth, I noticed the G36C had an EOtech looking sight on a RIS. THAT is cool...even if the RIS isn't raised the way it ought to be.

The guy who posted above me asked why ubi couldn't have a M4SOPMOD with 3 scope choices. The answer is that they probably could...but at a price;every option equals one less gun on the gun list. Maybe with the new engine and everything they can get around this, but the reason they didn't do it with Black Arrow is that at the start of every live game, in the time from lobby to 'Go!' the xbox loads all 64mb of its ram. This ram is packed full with the old arsenal, even when everyone chooses the same gun, all of the ram loads. So, as you probably understand, they'd have to take an entire gun out to give one gun an option. As indicated above, I am still in favor of that. Sacrifice some less popular guns to make the most popular guns even better? Works for me. Say goodbye to mac11 primary, M249, P90, silenced sniper, mp5a4, tmp. Say hello to flat-top m16, reflex sight g3a3, etc.

i think they will implement custom weapons in career mode, but maybe not in other game modes.
