    This discussion has been had in other threads, but I think some modern weapons are appropriate. Real world "Retro" guns and retrofuturistic Resource Wars guns are obvious fits, but I think modern guns have their place too, if handled carefully. I think the focus should be on rare modern weapons, one-offs that never made it into production, prototypes etc to show that Fallout wasn't just in a freeze over from 1959 to 2077, but also that their version of our "modern era" was still alternate to our own. Having some weapons from the 70s-2000s gives some texture to the setting in that it shows it has a long history, because much like in the real world we don't disintegrate any technology that isn't current, and old stuff is floating about everywhere. Same would apply to the Fallout world.

    I think there are enough guns from the SPIW and AAI programs to fill that order. would have the 5mm cartridge in the game make way more sense as well. Just look at that these things.

    Yeah that's the kind of stuff I like to see. Like, picture in the Fallout world if the TKB-408 had won out in terms of design versus the AK-47

    • Fallout New Vegas: adds guns "oh cool, nice variety. great job."
    • Fallout 76: adds guns "what the f*ck bethesda?! this isn't cod! FALLOUT'S DEAD"

    New Vegas actually added real life guns into the game as well as retro futuristic guns with effects that made sense in the world of Fallout. 76 just adds bullshit legendary weapons like Borderlands into the game with the type of effects you would see from Borderlands. Fucking Bethfag...

    By the way we don't double post here. Can't wait for Hass to ban you like he has with the other Bethfags that come here from r/Fallout.

    Well... They are not wrong... Fallout is indeed dead in this point.

    But the problem with F76 is beacuse legendary weapons are not legendary at all. Also, the legendary thing is just plain stupid. How bother to create legendary weapons when you can simply make a unique variant of the weapon... You know, like NV and even 3 did. Also, this is the motive why nobody has problems with NV weapons, not only beacuse they are well made and make sense in the context of the game, but when a weapon is UNIQUE, is beacuse it is, none of this legendary crap with generic effects (which dont make sense at all sometimes) in weapons that are not unique in any way, shape or form to be considered a legendary... That is the real problem.

    You want to know the realist of problems in 76, if you weren't playing when the game came out or didn't get lucky enough to get a hold of those broken legendary guns you are essentially outclassed in any pvp fight and can't keep up at all with those using them in pve events to the point you can't even land a shot in to get damage credit for a kill because the guy with gatling plamsa that does explosive damage melted everybody.

    He's not really fundamentally wrong - so long as these games are first person shooters, ideally the shooting should be fun to do, as opposed to Fallout 3 and NV. If you've invested in the proper SPECIAL, skills, and perks, shooting should be fun and smooth, though I think Fallout 4 flattened the difficulty curve way too much - low level players should feel like Fallout 3 or NV shooters, high level players should feel like COD.
