GaiusFalkus Posted December 7, 2018 Share Posted December 7, 2018 I know a lot of people have opined on the gun parts situation in A15/A16. You would find parts 99% of the time, and people felt that this was wrong or weird, that you'd instead find full guns most of the time. I have a different logic argument, so follow me here. I own several guns, built one from scratch, and have been acquiring various other upgrades to others as my budget allows. So, alongside my complete guns, I do actually have quite a few parts laying about. I've swapped out factory parts with better, higher performing upgrades, and things like that. I really only keep the spares around for if an upgrade doesn't work out, and I need to swap back to factory. Now, if the apocalypse were to hit, my instinct would be to gather up my guns/ammo (and other survival items, of course) and get out of dodge. I would not bother with all the spare parts, because why would I? They're spares and this is an emergency. Therefore, I would argue that you as the 7D2D survivor, scavenging about in abandoned locations, might ONLY find parts for a good long while, because all the full weapons were carted off by their owners or other scavengers soon after the crisis. Sure there might be a pistol on a cop or an SMG on a soldier. But for the most part, those full guns should all be scattered to the wind from where they started. I'd say you'd be very VERY lucky to find a complete weapon just laying around. So hold on to those parts you keep finding, survivor. Eventually, you'll piece together your first ramshackle weapon. I rather enjoyed having to scrounge and build guns in A15/A16. It was part of the game experience and adventure. It was a small victory finally getting a shotgun together, you know? Now, if I loot a bank in A17, I come away with 20 pistols, 10 rifles, 5 shotguns and a mountain of ammo. Apparently, no one keeps money at banks anymore. So you tell me, which you think is more "real". I say they had it right all along. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
