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.

niiiice drawing...
and fyi, was called the thumper\blooper by troops in vietnam (when it first debued) because of the sound it makes upon firing a grenade launcher round...

...and onto the many comments and references to CODMW2, i just say this: i effing hate it when some one just travels with a M203 and ONLY and M203, but i respect those who have the decency to kill me with a M79 thumper...

... and i too hate the douche bags that thing they kno everything about guns, using not only call of duty, but all video games as reference - they balance the guns for a reason, cause if they were any MORE realistic, you'd have something as annoying and unsatisfying as Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising!!!

Did this gun come from a time range from around the late 19th century to the 1930s? The reason I'm asking because it seems like something they would use in steampunk movies.

Is more modern 60s - 70s
Basically a single shot Shotgun Super sized to fire the newly developed round

40mm rounds could not have been made sooner The Technology needed didnt exist at the time.
That an materials to make the weapon durable were also not around.

from 1900 - 1930 the advances in firearms included
Now using Bullets instead of pin fire, flintlock Ect

Firearm types made
Automatic pistol
Bolt action rifles
Pump action shotguns
HMG Turrets

Explosives launching devices in form of firearms didnt appear til 1940 +


Steam punk is pretty much everything post WW1 IDK I dont know much about Steampunk besides basics
Having certain technology around and not a equal advance in firearm tech throws me off to what should exist :meow:
Having steam powered robots = Enough technology to make more modern weapons designs not seen in Steampunk But I guess thats half the fun Mixing up things :3

Yeah they toned it down a lot so there wont be a POWER WEAPON in the game , bullshit crap

There a reason why we made that weapon To have a weapon That is far more powerful then anything else
If the added that Grenade revolver thing THEY WOULD MAKE IS SUCK SOOOO MUCH BALLS Just to be fair with everyone

IDK IF THEY KNOW THIS , BUT WAR IS NOT FAIR
were fighting a bunch of poor people armed with $20 AK-47 While we have $18,000 weapon systems and are firing $250,000 missiles at then from multi million dollar jets. Hum do you see a unbalance here that Infinity Ward over saw

O yeah were america If we want a weapon that can blow up 15 people in on spot Well make one
If no one else makes a weapon close to it O Well there lost
Besides everyone can use it so DONT MAKE IT SUCK INFINITY WARD >:3
Im just going to let it go now I dont want to start with there mistakes :iconimdeadplz:

Well the next one is made by Treyarch so it should be better. I do agree with everything you said. One thing is though that the Russians have stuuf as good as our to a point and we still haven't beat the people that have the cheepo weapons. Update too, I just got the ammo for the gun but they got me the wrong gun. I will take a picture of the ammo case but it says 7.62 with some Russian letters behind it.

I hate it when people think they know ALL about guns just from playing CoDMW2.

One time on my school bus, I was ease dropping on some of my ex-friends and they were talking about how the Barret .50 Cal is the best sniper in the world.
I asked them, while they were talking about a different topic, "Do you play Call of Duty?"
They said "Yes."

Pshh. Figures.


Cool gun by the way. I like the textures.

Agree Half the crap on COD isnt even realistic
The Barret can go 2,000 meters tops Made for 1000+
At best in COD Im taking shots at thr furthest of like 300meters and thats rare

Most idiots also thing Bullets hit right on the cross hair every time And are oblivious to how truly deadly the .50BMG round is
2-3 shots not in the head is a kill Realistically anywere you get hit by a 50 is gone and your going to be stopped in spot. Not be able to run off then flank back >:3
That and the 50 cant even go through stuff like cars in the game That 50 would take out the car 10 ppl behind it and a 2nd car

But no a small tree stops it >:3

Yeah lots of flaws and idiots that belive it XC
