Well damn, I really liked the energy weapons myself. Felt the NV designs for the new ones were weak in comparison. The laser rifle looks very streamlined for field use and like it has all it's sophisticated inner workings housed in an aluminum body or something. Definitely looks like a modular platform. The plasma rifle has more of an emerging/prototype look to it. Really different to the laser rifle, but they contrast/compliment each other nicely. If I were to change it though I might place the plasms "pistons" on the right hand side only. The more I look at them the more I can see why people like the Wattz stuff.
