Hello! Its that time of the month again! V1.0 has been released to the public and they're loving it! With plenty of new and returning weapons to use, youll never get bored! V1.0 does not mark the end of releases. Since V1.0 was released earlier than expected, we have already begun development on V1.1 with overhaul to recoil, weapon mechanics and even 2 new weapons. These will be teased throughout the coming months!
However with the release of V1.0, it does mark the end of returning content! Any old content that hasn't made it into V1.0 will not make it in directly into any future updates. On the other hand, this does not mean it wont make it in in some other form. We plan to get some new models for some old weapons which never got their own model made from the ground up featuring help from the "Relics and Rayguns" Community! Many thanks go out to the community members, which made this project possible!
In the meantime, here is a small video displaying a few new weapons from the 1.0 release of The Ballistic Weapons Complete Collection! Happy Fragging!

EP110 Photon Bullpup
Before the Skrith wars broke out, photon weaponry was declared inhumane by the Neo-Geneva convention due to the effects it had against animal test subjects. It wasn’t until one battle on Gahanna where photon weaponry found it’s value against the Cyron troopers, discombobulating their gyroscopic sensors long enough to turn the tide, living to fight another day. Since then, photon weaponry has been deemed legal to use in both wartime situations and underground blood sports. The EP110 is the latest in this field, a bullpup SMG not only able to clear out enclosed spaces, but it also has a discombobulator field able to disorient and destroy anyone caught in its path.
M575 Ice Guardian Machinegun
In response to not just the regular UTC troops demanding a new LMG, but also the ODST troops finding the M353 to be inadequate in stopping skrith dead in their tracks, Enravion updated the platform into the new M575 Machine Gun. In addition to firing 7.62mm rounds instead of the old 5.56mm rounds, the M575 also has rail support for all the optics one could ever ask for; when the weapon first debuted, it came with a C-All Red Dot Sight along with a 2x magnifier scope. While the M353 is still hanging around, it is slated to be phased by the M575 within 6 months if all goes well.
Y11 Skrith Warthog
One of the more devastating skrith tools of destruction, the Y11 is their answer to the XMV-850 Minigun. Able to spit out a deluge of plasma bolts at a rapid pace of fire, the Y11 can cut down anyone who isn't prepared; such was the case when only 3 skrith warriors were able to mow down a small battalion of UTC troops in the dense forests. Without their armor, the soldiers fell quickly, leaving only a few scarred survivors to tell the tale; calling them 'Warthogs' due to the voracious firepower and speed. Newer models of the Y11 have the capabilities to fire HV Plasma Rockets, making it even more potent against personnel.
