Fallout 4 New Vegas Mod Team Reveal New Weapon Redesigns

Fallout 4 New Vegas is one of the more ambitious long-term mod projects for Fallout 4; the team behind it are aiming to recreate the entirety of Fallout: New Vegas inside Fallout 4. Moreover, rather than replicate the older title 1:1, the modders are making tweaks and improvements along the way. The team’s latest update gives fans their first look at new weapon redesigns for the upcoming mod.

The Fallout 4 New Vegas mod project is one of the largest around for the Fallout series. In fact, it’s attracted so much attention and support that the team has received the approval of Bethesda themselves. Thus far, the mod doesn’t have a release date. However, the team have been sharing relatively frequent updates to show fans their progress. For instance, they recently shared images of their new skill magazine covers, and addressed fan misconceptions about shadows and image editing.

The latest update from the Fallout 4 New Vegas team concerns the mod’s redesigned weapons; the team has now posted the first of these new renders on their Facebook page. In the post, the team stated; “Unlike Fallout 4, which was focused mostly on the 1920’s-era Thompson, New Vegas is home to a number of different SMGs of varying calibers and features. Among the weapons absent from Fallout 4 is the 10mm SMG, a staple of previous Fallout games.”

The post went on to show off two new images of the mod’s redesigned 10mm SMG; the work of Syn, a 3D asset team member working on the mod. This is the first major look at a redesigned weapon from the Fallout 4 New Vegas team, and gives fans a hint at what stage they’re at. Hopefully, the team will be ready to show off more of their work relatively soon, especially when it comes to weapons, armor, and other major items.
