RF's Weapon of the Week
10:17 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
It's time once again for Red Faction's featured Weapon of the Week. For those unfamiliar with the title, Red Faction, in development by Volition, is an upcoming FPS that introduces several elements new to the genre, including utilization of the Geo-Mod engine, which allows players to blow up practically everything in the game, walls included.
This week's weapon is the UAP-32/20 Ultor Submachine Gun. Looking somewhat like an MP5 Navy, this weapon has a full-automatic fire mode for those that like the "spray-and-pray" tactic. This weapon is good for short/medium range assaults, though its accuracy degrades past medium ranges. It is able to fire two different kinds of bullets - either 12mm at 30 rounds a clip, or 5.56mm armor piercing bullets at 20 rounds a clip. Its primary and alternate forms of fire correspond directly to the aforementioned kinds of bullets.
The accompanying Screenshot of the Week shows the Submachine Gun in action, with the automatic fire option being demonstrated as various red spots appear on the body of the unfortunate guard being shot. This game isn't for the squeamish, that's for certain.
