This maybe is one of my last projects for this year. Itīs a new weapon I designed for
īs OC Jonathan Knight from his Mass Effect fanfic 'Resonance Effect'.
During the creation of the Forge Blade - another weapon for his OC [link]
- we discussed the problem of the weight all the equipment would cause. A Widow, his M12-AA shotgun, A Mattock, a Phalanx and the blade with everything else could be a little bit much. So he came up with the Idea for a new gun which was only as big as an SMG and has the firepower of a carbine or small assault rifle. He sended me some sketches and gave me a lot of freedom, so the result was the gun in the middle.
I called it the MX-35 Chameleon and maybe you can allready see why
. For the gun itself, it is only 76cm long, basically made of carbonfibre, in bullpup-design and can fire 35 rounds with one clip in semi and full auto mode.
During the creation of this one I suddenly hade some more ideas. Why not use the space under the barrel, so the keyword SOPMOD (itīs like Barbie for men
) came to me. I designed several underbarrel attachements for this, which can be changed with the quick change rail system. So I made a foregrip, a shotgun, a grenadelauncher, a special clipholder (which holds 3 additional clips, shows their status and can cool partly used ones down) and the rail protection cover. When these where done I made a flashlight, targeting laser, silencer, flipable Ironsight, a reddot, an AQOC and an IR-scope. All these additional parts and the quick change functions are the reason to call it chameleon.
Some may would say I bring COD, BAttlefiled or/and Crysis to Mass Effect and I only say: Why not
Again I want to say thank you to
for the chance to make this, the freedom during the build and the feedback and of course the cameo in your story. If you want it, you can see it as a christmas present
