Tamaster's GIANT Weapon addition suggestion Part 1 - Pistols

Recommended Posts

Mikachu    26

Why?

After playing this mod for months and months I am slowing growing tired of seeing the same guns over and over, as well as this I also feel the current weapon list is missing a lot on the civilian side as well as lower end military weapons, things police would use for example.

In this thread I will be suggesting a LOT of new weapons which could be added to RP. Some are already in the files and some are not, they will be sorted by weapon type and I ask everyone to please post saying which weapons they agree/disagree with and hopefully we can get some added.

Oh and adding more weapons has the lovely side effect of making everything else slightly rarer.

P.S. Since I originally started to make this thread I have found so many possible weapons I am splitting the thread into parts by weapon type. This first thread is all about pistols. Enjoy!

Pistols

G17

Weapon_Glock17.png

Link: N/A

Why add it?: the G17 is a standard pistol from ARMA for a reason. It is accurate but relatively weak, has a flashlight (which is sorely lacking from most weapons), and a pretty big magazine. I honestly don't understand why they were removed in the first place and it would be the easiest gun to add.

RP reason to exist: Many, many police forces use the G17 and as such it is logical that the Chernarussian police may have also. Any foreign police which came here would of brought one with them too. The Russian MVD also use G17s and would have brought many into Chernarus.

------------------------------------------------

Desert Eagle + Variations

mkjwzBZ.jpg

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: Frankly because the mod could do with the addition of a rare powerful pistol and the deagle is beastly. It has the stopping power to do a LOT of damage but the accuracy to make it hard to actually hit anything. Adding the deagle and its ammo as very rare spawns at heli crashes and maybe barracks would give a pistol to aspire to. Plus it sounds badass.

RP reason to exist: If located at heli crashes it would make perfect RP sense for one of the passengers of said heli to have been carrying this pistol. It would be very rare just like it is in real life and would only appear at western heli's.

------------------------------------------------

Colt Anaconda

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: The Colt Python and the Raging Bull are already ingame so why not add another revolver? People love the look and feel of revolvers, they suit a post apocalypse setting and hell, no doubt people would own them. It adds some nice variety to pistol loot.

RP reason to exist: It is likely that some civilians would own revolvers as a personal weapon for sport or defence. The police force may also use revolvers. Other weapons like this already exist in RP, it's simply adding a new variant to add some spice.

------------------------------------------------

G18/G19

Q2653aZ.jpg

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: Very similar to the G17 really, the G18 & G19 are variants of the existing glock design. The G18 features a larger magazine and a full auto mode while the G19 features better stability and faster firing speed. The reason to add them is simple. Variation. The more different types of each weapon the better IMO.

RP reason to add: As with the G17 they are commonly used weapons for police forces and security firms around the world. It would make perfect sense for a few of these pistols to be around Chernarus.

------------------------------------------------

Mk22/Mk22SD

81lFJZp.jpg

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: The Mk22 is a nice balanced pistol which comes in both silenced and unsilenced varations. It is a standard pistol which fires in semi-auto and does a reasonable amount of damage. The reason to add it really would be to bring some variation to the pistols which spawn and also to add another SD pistol option.

RP reason to exist: The Mk22 was mostly used by the navy SEALS when fighting in Vietnam and other conflicts of that time period. As such it would not be a common weapon in Chernarus but it would exist from ex-SEALS or current ones bringing them over in a attempt to help against the infection. This would likely mean they only spawn at heli crashes.

------------------------------------------------

PPK

5X7MTmu.jpg

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: The PPK is another nice rounded pistol. It is very well balanced and doesn't excel in any one area but does OK in many. It should be added to have more variation in pistols and also to increase the number of Eastern pistols available.

RP reason to exist: The PPK is widely used by civilian, military and police forces around the world, especially focused in Eastern Europe. It would be very possible for many PPKs to be in Chernarus, from both native owners and also from forces bringing them into the country. It would be a relatively common pistol because of that.

------------------------------------------------

CZ75 + Variants

FBZVciy.jpg

Link: N/A

Why add it?: The CZ75 would be another easy to add pistol as it is part of the ACR DLC from BIS. It is a curious mixture of western and eastern weapon as well as being a pistol with many variations. It should be added to help flesh out the pistols and add a gun which has multiple versions you can find.

RP reason to exist: The CZ75 is a common pistol in Europe and Russia. It is used by police forces in Czech Republic, Poland, USA and Russia. It is also a commonly used sports pistol. Because of these two factors they would be pretty common in a country like Chernarus as they are easy to get a hold of for the native population and forces coming to aid would also be carrying them.

------------------------------------------------

Browning Hi-Power

Jk8dx4y.jpg

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: The Browning HP is a 9mm pistol like the Makarov or it's ilk but with much more punch. It should be added to provide a stronger civilian pistol which is still semi-auto, not a revolver. Plus it sounds awesome.

RP reason to add: The Browning HP is a common gun all over the world. It used to be the go to pistol for armed forces and PMCs and is now a often used pistol for civilians. Because of this Some of the wealthier citizens of Chernarus may well have owned one of these and since the police force uses some outdated weaponry it is likely they also could of carried these pistols.

------------------------------------------------

P226

iwZ4fmk.jpg

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: The P226 is a western pistol which is another all-arounder. It is very well balanced and would provide more variation to western pistols.

RP reason to add: The P226 is one of the most commonly used pistols for american forces. It is also used by special service agencies around the world. As such any US military will have brought a few over and any agencies investigating the outbreak would have also. It would not be super common but it would be a nice pistol to add.

------------------------------------------------

P38

GaqKGt4.jpg

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: The P38 is a much older gun than many on this list, dating back to WW2. It is a good all-arounder pistol but the main reason it should be added is due to it's distinctive shape, history and sound. It would be a good pistol to keep for RP reasons and looks.

RP reason to add: A P38 would not be the most common weapon in Chernarus but at leasta few families would have one as a heirloom or similar. It could be a rare civ spawn and would fit in well for RP.

------------------------------------------------

Ruger Mk2

BrCi0Cp.jpg

Link: RH Pistol Pack Remake

Why add it?: The Mk2 is a very unique weapon compared to any others on this list. It is chambered with .22 and as you can see from the picture looks very odd and special. This specific model is mainly used by the US navy when on operations as it is self suppressed. It would make sense for heli crashes to have a few of these. Really though it should be added just because of how different to any other pistol it is.

RP reason to add: The Mk2 model in ARMA is carried by the US navy when needed a supressed weapon. IT is chambered in .22 ammunition which makes it somewhat weaker than most other pistols, My suggestion would be to have it as a rare heli crash spawn and it is more a status symbol than particularly useful. It would be used to show "I have one of these!"

------------------------------------------------

Stetchkin APS/APB

agRdhgc.jpg

Link: Project '85 Weapons

Why add it?: The APS/APB is a russian pistol which can fire in both semi and full auto. It uses pretty small mags and each shot doesn't do a ton of damage but it would be nice to have a pistol which has both firing modes. The APB is also a silenced variant which would be another great SD choice.

RP reason to add: The APS /APB is a commonly used pistol for russian and other eastern European special forces and agencies. No doubt with the large amount of specifically russian ones in the area many, many APS/APBs would have entered Chernarus if there weren't any already.

------------------------------------------------

P99

7eSbj0P.jpg

Link: P99 Projekt

Why add it?: The P99 is another western pistol which does well at most things. The reason to add this specific pack though is simple. The quality on display here is amazing. The model is great, it has a separate state for no ammo, it has multiple variants of colour and attachments. It would be a great pistol to add to the crafting menu too, you could add a silencer and laser sight to it.

RP reason to add: The P99 is almost exclusively used by US police forces and as such would be very rare in Chernarus. Thankfully in recent years some police forces much nearer to Chernarus have started to buy P99s, Iraq & Poland for example. It is very much feasible that a few of those pistol would get into Chernarus via the black market and no doubt a few PMCs would also bring some in. They wuld be pretty rare still, but could definitely exist.

------------------------------------------------

Mauser HSC

yiZAUjo.jpg

Link: German Weapon Pack 2

Why add it?: The simple reason to add the HSc is that model is nice and the sound is too, it is also a stubby pistol which there are not many of in RP. It would be a nice pistol to use for RP purposes similar to the P38.

RP reason to add: Like the P38 a Mauser HSc would be pretty damn uncommon in Chernarus, only really existing as left overs from WW2. Therefore it would a collector's item and could be either a rare civ spawn or a rare military spawn.

------------------------------------------------

Makarov M

7ROpyUn.jpg

Link: German Weapons Pack

Why add it?: This one is likely the easiest of all. It is a variant of the Makarov PM we all so dearly love and would help spice up the civ loot tables when it came to pistols. Plus another Eastern European pistol can't hurt.

RP reason to add: The Makarov M would be all over the place in a country like Chernarus. The police force would use them, private security would use them, russians would use them, civs would use them. It's basically as common as the Makarov PM.

And that's it for pistols. I hope you like some of these suggestions and I urge you to post which you would like to see ingame and why as well as which you wouldn't. I will post the next thread soon which will focus on another category of guns and in the meantime I apologise for the massive wall of text. o7

I love pistols! Definitely need more, other than the MK22. I really, really hate that one. It just feels horrible to use. I thought the Colt Anaconda was already in?

It may be but I have never seen one, only the raging bull and python.

I agree with all of these more secondaries would be a welcome addition most of them are readily available to the military or police whilst the remaining could easily be found to be owned by a civilian.

Also how much damage is a lot of damage for the desert eagle and the anaconda? considering the raging bull actually does like 2-3k i believe might even be more than that actually.

I think my favourite is the MK22 standard

I would love to see all of these! Especially the Desert Eagle! One of my favourite weapons of all time. They would be especially good for executions.

I'd also love to see the other SD pistols. The only SD pistol I've had in game is the Makarov SD. Also, with the SD weapons it would add more of a variety to heli crashes. Rather than there being a standard M4A1, there could be a P99 SD. Yeah, we don't want people to get the best gear possible instantly. But, a P99 SD isn't going to kill an army exactly.

I love the idea, and would personally love to see all of these guns in-game. Great idea, Tamaster.

I really like the idea Tam. We do need a few other guns for the mod itself... But some of the designs are a bit... Bad. But no to the lazer sighted ones.

A big no from me. We already have enough weapons around that push the probability of viable weaponry and ammunition out of the loot table. Adding these pistols just adds more of an imbalance.

There is no roleplay reason for heaps of weaponry and highly sophisticated guns to be in a dilapidated forest/farming region in a fictional Czech Republic clone.

Would love to know which you think are bad designs?

The point of this thread is hey - heres a TON of possible guns, which ones are good enough to actually put in the mod :)

The majority of these pistols are the opposite of highly sophisticated. They are common russian weapons and would be all over the place in a place like Chernarus. Some of them obviously wouldn't be (Deagle for instance) but don't lump them all together :)

Thanks! Also yes, it's surprisingly difficult to get good pictures.

Looks really good. A lot of civilian/police and sporting weapons on here which makes sense and the ones that are military seem to be no more out of the realm of possibility than high tier military weapons. Making people work for their most specialist, favoriteist gun might also promote an air of trading or even make the game a bit more dangerous if people want to keep lugging around rare and rarer bits of equipment.

If you would like to test any of these guns yourself and know how to install mods and work the editor then simply download them from the link provided, enable both the mod and DayZRP and spawn them in the editor :)

Sounds sadly are not something I can easily place for each gun on the thread.
