Hello! Ballistic weapons has been soaring ahead with new and returning content over the last few weeks or so! With the Return of Kelly to the project, and taking on new Modellers, Texturers and Sounds Devs, we will be pumping new content for you all to enjoy! We would like to take a moment and thank the community for being super patient and super supportive in the way we wish to take the complete collect, and cannot thank you enough for just being amazing and helping us fix all the bugs we encounter!
I thought i would take this months article in a different direction. Instead of showing you a video of what we have already released, we would love to show you a few of the projects we are getting working, after 5 years of Neglect. We shall be looking at 4 weapons which were planned for release back in 2015, which were never finished yet hyped up by the community. Alot of you may already recognise a few of these weapons, bit of nostalgia.
This is the Phantom HVPC. Released to our eyes back in December of 2012, this never made it into the bonus packs due to the lack of concepts of its function. We will hopefully be seeing its return sometime around August as some sort of energy cannon. More to come in due time.
M575 Light Machine Gun
The M575 Machine Gun. Posted back in 2014, the M575 is a direct upgrade from the M353 and had the intentions of becoming the replacement for the weapon, not only being a higher quality, but being more unique with its hybrid scope and unique art design. The animations are not finished yet, but we hope to see this one very soon!
MG36 Heavy Machine Gun
As part of the last release of SKBP for BWFix, this weapon was unfinished with a scope and a fair amount of bullets. We hope to bring this one back as the first mountable silenced machine Weapon, with 2 different scopes for all situations and a large amount of bullets hidden away in its drum magazine. We hope to see this finished, with new animations and textures, in the following weeks.
As part of the last release of SKBP for BWfix, the Johnson was hidden away in the files, without code, without a purpose and without hope of ever being finished! In the coming weeks, we wish to revive this weapon into a slower firing weapon, similar to that of the bulldog, with the Chainsaw attack for uncomfortable close quarters combat. Really looking forward to playing with this one!

ARC-79 Lightning Rifle
Cant go without saying what kind of new content we have lined up for you! This Rifle is going under alot of changes. Originally made as concept for the UT4 lightning rifle, we shall be seeing this model making an appearance as a sniper rifle able to ARC damage from one player to another. Exciting stuff! For now lads, we will leave you with alot of the returning content from the old packs, as well as a number of new weapons to mess around with! Take care!
