SR3 / SRIV Weapon Archive

Included in this weapons archive, are all the weapons from 3 & VI they are not game ready, but are great for mixing and mashing together!

The last feature this release includes is an in-depth modeling tutorial.
There's a fair bit of work to get setup, however once done Saints Rows becomes a sandbox of your creations, it's well worth the effort!

So what are you waiting for?, if you have a mod in development, are now going to kick one off or have an awesome weapon model to show off, add your content here and get promoting.

We will keep you updated on future SDK release's, you can track the updates here!

We are looking forward to seeing what the community can create!
