I full heartedly agree with that. I was just joshin' you a bit about, well, you know, the same thing people have been joshing you about for maybe seven years.

Despite what I said, it's nice to hear that those weapons are in, mainly because the Duke 3d shotgun is my favorite shotgun of all time. The grip, oh baby.

Awesome news georgiporgy!!!
Chaingun was awesome.

So shotgun, double barrel, please say double barrell (and one kill headshots on weaker monsters is always awesome).

Why are some people so opposed to the sniper rifle, always a fun gun, and doesn't seem to out of character. In a properly designed game they don't hurt game balance, and... I'm not getting into the whole multiplayer thing, if you can't play vs a sniper get out of the match

Maybe a hi-tech "sniping" gun like Shadow Warrior's Railgun? Or an alien raygun, I don't know. I just want the main pistol to be accurate, that's all I ever ask of my shooters as soon as I start playing them. The Duke 3D one wasn't very accurate. Then again, I play with autoaim off. Let's hope Duke's new Desert Eagle is a little more precise.

Or hitscan. The 2001 video SR or the one Jedi Knight 2 or Quake 3's laser railgun is a good idea to start with. Not that I didn't enjoy UT's which was my fave.

Remember the sniper rifle in SiN where you had to wait AGES for it to fold out like some strange Bond gadget? I never want to see that again. Duke's sniper rifle would be some high calibre monster usually used to take down elephants or something. It would let out a mighty BANG! as it goes off, sending birds flying from the trees and alien scum ducking for cover.

Im glad all the old traditional weapons are in... nothing worse than an FPS trying to make up all sorts of stupid weapons.. though what 3DR done in Duke3D like shrinkray and the freezing one was awesome.. perfect... is there still more cool weapons to design that work so well?

So they are not allowed to make up weapons, but the shrinkray and they freezer are allowed??

A bit contradictory isn't it.

But I agree that it's good that the old weapons are in

The laser trip bombs were re-confirmed after the 2002/2003 restart? cool. I didn't know that.

I wonder if the chaingun cannon will use the small screen on it to show its ammo number or something this time?

I've been on here for many years, like many of the chosen hardcore. I remember when 3DR was involved in some chat-room where they would answer questions from the fans. I asked if Duke would rock akimbo guns, John Woo style, and they said he wouldn't. Wasn't Duke's style.

Well, its been at least a few years since then, just thought I'd say it again. Duke rocks akimbo guns on the cover art of Duke 3D, yeah baby. 3DR, you know you guys have come around to the akimbo guns idea by now.

Dual fisted, guns blazing action. You know you want it.

Re: DNF, John Woo style...
It would be really cool, as long as it was twin Desert Eagles or twin Magnums or something like that (no tiny pea shooters), but I wouldnt be majorly dissapointed if they were ommited. The most important thing for me would be decent, movie like muzzle flashes and loud, hard hitting sounds.

And please, 3DR, please don't make the view move to simulate recoil (as in, when you shoot an assualt rifle, the actual view camera shakes all over the place), there's nothing more annoying!

Re: DNF, John Woo style...
Well, it is supposed to be realistic and from Duke's Eyes... so I suppose to make it a more realistic experience... you should have a little bit of that... nothing mad like some other games out there... just make it as visually realistic...

I say just have it shake the tiniest bit, but as long as it doesn't screw with your aim...

Re: DNF, John Woo style...
Personally, I like the system where your crosshair gets wider to show the lesser accuracy from weapons with lots of kick. And I like all the shaking to stay on the gun animation, not your screen literally shaking.

Of course, more importantly, Duke rocking two pistols at the same time... thats what we need.

George has stated many times DNF has full body awareness, therefore I assume all the bobbing and recoil stuff is in as it would look silly without it. FBA usually equates to having your view react as your model does in 3rd person.

Well yeah, screen movement is always needed, or you feel like you're on rails. But, having your screen shake all over the place because you're shooting at somebody? Can be annoying if overdone.

More importantly, I'd like to see Duke make like Chow Yun Fat, as Max Payne would say. I mean, sure, a big Desert Eagle is more Duke's style... but why not two for special occasions? Am I right?

Re: Ripper Chaingun cannon
The Ripper Chaingun Cannon should be a real life weapon, It would be a substitute for a Hand Held Minigun, It would be lighter in weight and less bulky too. It seems to be based on the late 19th Century 'Nordenfelt Gun' which was a Gatling Gun rival


It was even being discussed here:

Re: DNF, John Woo style...
Akimbo guns are cool in the games that have it. However I can understand keeping it out of DNF.
For one thing, D3D didnt have it, so thats one good reason.
Besides, it just wouldnt feel right. I cant quite put my finger on why... I mean Duke is all about guns, the more the marrier. So why not akimbo? Just doesnt seem Dukelike somehow.
Come to think of it, every gun besides the pistol takes 2 hands anyway!
That being said, I guess I wouldnt have a problem with akimbo pistols.
If they do chose to put akimbo pistols in, then I hope it works like this:

2 Hands, 1 pistol: Really accurate shooting & very little recoil
2 Hands, 2 pistols: Not so accurate shooting, but faster, and with twice the bullet capacity obviously.

In other words, make it a tradeoff between speed, bullet number and accuracy. So 2 pistols arnt necessarily better than one. Its just a matter of taste. Personally I would probably prefer 1 pistol for accuracy.


And please god keep anything remotely related to 'Jon Woo' style (whatever the hell that means) out of the game!

I believe George's last statement on the matter stands. Cover art is and advertising images are a lot different than actual game play.
