weapon technical lore?
« on: 18 October 2021, 11:56:37 »
hello everyone, I'm new here and was just wondering if theres any writing on the lore behind the various weapons systems. I'm mainly looking for details to distinguish all the various models, like caliber and burst size for autocannons, beam color for lasers, etc.
i know theres some info out there, but on average less than 1/3 of the various models have anything beyond who makes them and where. like, whats the difference between a defiance type J and a Mydron C AC/5?
edit: I'm mainly asking this because I'd like to see if i could potentially fill these in, but before i go asking about that i want to make sure it hasn't already been done

That info isnt being tracked. You may get occasional mentions of such details in older novels, but rarely in recent ones. The differences between different weapons are 0 in gameplay, though various computer games have used brand names to differentiate them. IE in MW5.
The solution is just ignore Paul.
