    Who said only the police have guns? It's been less than a month since a house across the street was surrounded by armed rozzers because they knew there was an illegal firearm in there. In cities such as Manchester the gangsters have more guns than the police.

    That said, I've never seen anyone pull a gun out in the city during a friendly bar-fight. You get the odd knife but in general we tend to settle things the civilized way... by pounding each other to a pulp with our bare hands. :-)

    Hmm, yes. The Dev Diary is the perfect place for gun control chat. Can we do abortion next?

    Now I was apprenticed as a gunsmith here in south texas in my youth. I did some work on revolvers. In my experience, they just arent as popular or common.
    In 2021 the movie "Dirty Harry" had its 50th anniversary. Being shown again in movie theaters spurned a huge revival of all things Harry. Suddenly it was fashionable again to say "Make my day" to total strangers and have a magnum around the house. Since nobody really used them for anything serious though they can be found in tip top condition in many Arizona households in 2052

    I'll bite. (pun intended)

    How about a pregnant zombie with a gaping hole in her belly from which a malformed fetus reaches out and adds to her close combat attacks? That gives you a new zombie with a lore-friendly special ability and ramps up the horror factor by several degress.

    That's a much better topic of discussion :-)

    it did have a revival? 2021. so you are giving us backstory now? but did the 44 magnum sales jump up, and he went to a 50 cal pistol, because his iconic 44 was no longer the biggest boy, frued would love his need for having the biggest handgun in the world. nevertheless, not as common. MM has been (it seems) te be using realism when he can, and fantasy to make it fun. a 6 shot main weapon, NOT as much fun on horde night as something with a few more rounds. that being said, I just use the smg for the agil build and would appreciate something other than a revolver as the bad ass of the agility build.

    edit: besides, modding a revolver isnt all that great, a flashlight, scope? maybe some new grips, that is about it. a semi auto? mags, silencers, scopes, recoil comps. much more suited to the mods that tfp want us to be able to play with. gun mods, not game mods.

    There are also guns designed to be used under water or in zero gravity...

    Get working. We want all three tiers of those.


    On second thought, we just need the first. Save the second for Minecraft...

    Hey MM, any additional news you can shed on zombies. You mentioned a few pages back the rads would be getting some new art. Any new abilities with it?

    Also a LOONG time ago you mentioned in one of your videos that there was a chance you guys were designing a "boss zed" that raised the dead around them. So if this zed was in your vicinity and you killed a normal zed this boss could bring it back to life.

    Is this still something that may be planned? Or is that idea the way of the Behemoth.
    New rad zombies are a long ways off and nothing specific is planned yet. First we'd figure out the game play we want, then get concepts drawn up. Giant vultures or something that could fly and pick players up on horde night have been discussed a bit, but nothing concrete yet.

    I'd say yes regardless if you implied file size or content.

Plus, the ammo is a lot cheaper to make.

    It was exciting to get my hands on a magnum during my AGI build, but I quickly realized it was just a worse pistol for all the reasons above and more. In particular, you spend more time reloading than shooting, and the firerate seems rather low most of the time. I pretty much only used it for trader discounts from that point on.

    It would be greatly improved and actually see some use with a reduction to reload time (mainly cut out the spinning part, that's half the problem) and an increased fire rate (if it could fire as fast as you pull the trigger that would be pretty fun). Yes it would turn into a burst spam gun but it would have a more distinct role from the pistol, while still requiring discipline due to the ammo cost.
    Maybe the magnum could do some knockback or ragdoll to most enemies, making that limited ammo capacity not be outclassed by spamming 9mm.

    You mean a necromancer?

    I still prefer the pistol though. :P
    Honestly its just one of those personal preference things. If you are a pretty good aim, the magnum is pretty nice. If you want to pray n spray an smg or pistol are better. I keep both on my belt and use the magnum for most situations, and then go to smg when things get nasty, unless I'm stealthing then I use a silenced 9mm.
