Ah yes. "Noob tube." Much like idiot gamers claiming that every game to feature akimbo guns is ripping off Modern Warfare, they can't stop themselves from saying that every grenade launcher out there is a "noob tube." In real life, of course, 40mm low velocity grenade launchers actually take significant skill to use correctly - nobody likes it when their squad's grenadier "bloops" one right into the ground ten feet away because he didn't realize that you have to elevate a M79 or M203 in order to arc the round into the target.

I like your metal shading on this one, it's got a nice sorta "cel-shaded" kinda look to it.

Tell me about it, I have a 37mm I know how to use ,So its most frustrating having kids talk crap when I get 20 40mm kills in a game.
I just keep in mind were high traffic spots are and spare no expense firing rounds off all match long between firefights.
Same goes with Frags and Ammo. Turn the corner shooting and always throw frags were your going. Get scavenger and I can go all day long.
Sure wish they had the 40mm buck shots and other variants around.
Especially a smoke shot - I like running into smoke and poping out in front of them, As well as shutting up snipers.

As for coloring, Is just of the photo at a transparent level.
Several small edits if there are any angle pics, But nothing much.
Toped off with some shading but not so much.

I think Battlefield: Bad Company 2 includes the "beehive" round as an option for some launchers, which essentially turns it into the world's biggest, meanest shotgun at close range. It's like letting off a dozen .22s at once at close range. The beehive seems a little easier on the weapon than a buckshot shell would be; from what I've read, the buckshot 40mm rounds tore the M79 up something fierce so they didn't get much use.

Back in the dinosaur days of war-themed FPS shooting (I mean back in like... Medal of Honor. The original Medal of Honor.) I used to use the term "grenade recon" to describe "figuring out if there is an enemy in that pillbox by pitching in a frag grenade first." It still works in newer games. I always get irritated by people claiming that using explosives or sniper rifles is cheating. They need to get over it when they're been camping the MBT the whole match anyway.

That's a pretty cool shortcut for producing a cool coloring effect, actually.
