Default Barret M82

I had to put my UMP aside, because this one has a due date.

It's supposed to be "kind of near future", so any suggestions on upgrades/fixes would be appreciated.

Lol I'll eventually make something beside guns.
I just love modeling them though. D:

I dunno about texturing though.
I can't do that to save my life.

Nice one. So what's it's for, since it has a "due date"?

A short movie.

A number of people are working on it, so I'm one of the people modeling the weapons.

You also forgot about the handles, and the glass in the scope isn't supposed to protrude...

BTW, very nice models!(all of them)

By handles, just for the modelers reference, are you referring to the Bi-pod on the front of the gun under the forearm?

Ah the famous 92,000 poly model. A little hi res for a model such as this. My hi res characters dont even exceed this poly count. I'd really have a look at where you can optimize the mesh. Post a wire up for some crit on the offending areas.

Cheers

Well I think it's down to about 82,000 now.

I'll try to clean it up a bit more and post a wireframe once I got Maya running.

On your face count its registering 36,633 so where did you get 82k from?

Again still excessive amounts of polys. Alot of which can be terminated into tris. The rifle butt too doesnt need that dense a mesh on the end. The middle part of the rifle is just right, see if you can get the rest to match.
