Add more Soviet/cold war era weapons

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With Dev's having the ability to add in tons of mods and items I think they should take the time to look at weaponry

I know the AK 74/ and 74U are getting added in June but that's only a fraction of what's available atm.

There's a shitload of sovietstyle civilian and military guns available and considering the lore of chernarus and current groups that are active I think it would be nice to have them IG.

  • A smal list of possible civ guns that would be common in former soviet countries: 
    • TOZ-106/TOZ-34/TOZ-66
    • VEPR-136/VEPR-209/VEPR-101
    • TT-33
       
  • as for military guns the list is pretty endless tbh.
    • AK-100 series : especially the 101/102/108 since it's compatible with 556 nato (making sense RP wise considering the influence NATO had in South Zagoria)
    • AK12 : with the burst option (just because it's nice 🙂 )
    • RPK/RPD: for people like me who miss 74 shots before hitting 1
    • The AS VAL: would make sense RP wise since it's silenced and has acces to Subsonic bullets, making it a very efficient tool to take down infected without agro'ing them
       
  • more soviet style submachine guns (which would be easier to handle by regular civilians without heavy military training) 

I'm pretty sure the DEVs could look at Escape from Tarkov and maybe even Metro for further inspiration

thx to @Ducky for some of the gun ideas

+1 but didn't include the beast that is the PPSh-41, more guns are always appreciated from me

TOZ-34, 66, and 106 for a few interesting russian shotguns.

VEPR-209 for an single fire AK platform that fires .366 Slugs 😉 

VEPR-136 for a single fire AK platform chambered in 7.62x39, very popular brand of rifle for hunting in Ukraine.

VEPR-101 cause we can never get enough 7.62x54 guns, it's good to have an alternative to the Mosin when using that caliber.

 

All these platforms make sense to be on the market atleast.

As for the suggestion above from @DaRsnn?

Nah, PPSh-41 has no civilian application, useless as a hunting rifle compared to the Mosin, SKS or SVT, likely would have been sold or given to a museum.

((The following is for NEW guns that have not previously been in the game.))

Implementing new guns is a lot of work and as Im the only one currently able to make new guns, which I do trough my co-authored external mod "MoreGuns" I am sorry to say tha the decision of which guns will be made is not something the DRP community has any say in.

Many of the weapons you've suggested can at this time not be modded due to lack of original animations, others are just slight variations of eachother but require the same amount of time to make, which makes them not worth doing.

With MoreGuns I am trying to do weapons that are distinctly different from eachother so that they can be used differently, not only a visual difference.

If in the future modding becomes easier or we get more devs on the team that can make weapons, your suggestions might be considered but as it is now, Im sorry to say that wont be the case.

VEPR, ADR15 and M14 will be in a MoreGuns update coming within a few weeks, after that I can't say what more will be done.

Modding for DayZ is not as powerfull nor easy as many would think and making game quality models is not something anyone can pick up in an afternoon. Just putting that out for all you enthusiasts who often comment "I dont see why not" or "should be easy enough".

So what you're saying is an AS50 is possible but it'll take a while?

You mean you just want to port escape from tarkov in dayzrp? 

I tried this type thread and both devs and friends said no. AFAIK, exactly as @Misho said, this stuff is difficult and unlikely as of the current build. Just wait and stuff should start coming through, I'm pretty sure the devs backlist is massive right now.

Do as you like 😛 Join the team or learn to mod DayZ, that would help.

Would be fun! I'm studying right now to become a game artist but I want to specialise in hard edge modelling and specifically vehicles & weapons.

That's great man, send me or JimRP a PM here or on discord if you're interested in joining, we need more modellers for sure. I myself finished school about 10 years ago for the same thing you're doing now.
