Hey FA:S Community, and sorry for the delay. Today we have two weapons to show you and some information regarding one of our testers recent journal entries. The first weapon we would like to show you is the M60. The M60E3 is our heavy machine gun that comes in at 17 credits. That will allow you to grab a Kevlar helmet, medium armor, and a cheap sidearm. The M60E3 deals a lot of damage, holds a lot of rounds, and comes with a bipod for greater accuracy. As the ideal support weapon, any teammate wielding it will easily be your best friend, but make sure you don't catch yourself amidst the stream of tracers, or you will turn out looking like swiss cheese.

The next weapon we have to show is the G36C. It was recently re-textured by Dr.Hubbler because the old texture was unfinished and out dated. The G36C was brought over by the Incursion team, but has been upgraded to Firearms: Source standards. We added our standard aimpoint and removed the old one, and we gave it a whole new texture. At 11 credits, the G36C is a deadly assault rifle that is excellent in CQC combat. However, if you wish to hit enemy combatants from a far, just turn on single shot or burst fire, and bring up the aimpoint.

Lastly, I would like to talk about a few things that Waisted Menkey mentioned in his June 28th Alpha Tester Journal Entry. If you haven't seen it, I'd suggest taking a look at it. One of the main features that was revealed was our Firearms: Source Award System. The awards system acts differently to Achievements in the Source Games utilizing Steamworks. These awards that you earn in the game can be achieved every time you join a server or new map. Unfortunately, we don't have the ability to save the awards, but hopefully in the future we will be able to integrate Steamworks into Firearms: Source. Below is a list of all of the awards in game. If you have any ideas for awards you would like to see in the game, don't be afraid to suggest them. We already implemented a few awards that were suggested by the community.


The Blue Force's player model is finished, so you can expect to see them in the next update, along with our last weapon which hasn't been shown before. Make sure you stay connected to the Firearms: Source Community by registering on our forums. If you want constant FA:S updates follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

I noticed that the M60 has a rail system on it...will we be able to mount an optic of some sort on it as part of marksman skill?

This mod is far from dead mate. People on IRC all the time; the beta testers are always talking about it. I can't wait for it.

Just a thought, some thumb shadow on the m60 ammo box would be nice :)

I dont understand. every modeller puts guns on safe. How can they operate when safety is activated? please! it should be easy for you. please put the fire rate switch to auto, not to safe.

Obviously it's to prevent accidental discharges while modelling.

Duh...

You guys seem to run a steady ship for quite some time now. At first i wasn't very interested in your work, but i have to admit that - due to your dedicated efforts - you're starting to make me think

"God damn get it done already!"
