    The project is in a semi-playable state, working on content/secrets to keep it interesting. There are currently 10 firearms and each comes with a 5 tier unique upgrade. The 5th upgrade unlocks the gun's full potential and adds a new characteristic (Such as a slow, set on fire, critical, AOE, etc..)


    Finally with the X-Rifle and the upgrade counterpart complete, this is what a Tier 5 X-Rifle looks like in action:

    (The beam is now a lot smoother when it comes to tracking the player's mouse and the rotation of the unit)

    Today I joined this by random chance in battle.net and... dude this is awesome. I am an old player of the Parasite/Zerg Infestation/Metastasis group and I can really appreciate the amount of effort here and how everything is so nicely polished. Awesome work also with the models/sounds everything fits incredibly nice together.

    There is a lot of players out there who love this stuff and I can't until this goes super-popular, very good luck with your project maddeem!
