Retro-futurist armaments - something appropriate for the wearer of the armor posted here --->[link]

I've been designing a lot of weapons lately, so I figured I'd have a go and do some for myself. As always, thoughts welcome.

What SpawnVII said! If you check out JuiceHead on YouTube, you'll see that he's been covering the M2045 alongside your T-51-C power armor! ^_^

I've seen a model of the Murdelizer made for Fallout: New Vegas. Are you the one who made it? if yo are, could we ever expect the other two rifles made for New Vegas?

I didn't make the model you speak of - I just did the art that inspired the mod. The mod was actually made by the very talented AnOneTwo [link], and yes, he did try to make a mod for the Magnum Rifle, but the trick of staying true to my (very flawed) design and making a model that would animate like a gun should left him, and several others, frustrated. Don't know when we could expect the Gyrojet, as these have all been made in his spare time.

Some interesting designs there.

Is there a reason the M2045 has both a cartridge and a Revolver cylinder?

Now, if someone would make a mod for Fallout NV where they used the MK 41 Gyrojet, that would rock on so many levels.

Actually, as an Engineering Student, I can think of at least one way to design a functional clip/revolver ammunition feeding system using springs and wedges. The design in my brain is probably too complex to properly relate through text alone, but I can give the gist of it.

Essentially, the outer part of each revolver barrel has a wedge shape, and is placed using a spring that continuously pushes it forward. Now, in the back part of the feed, a system of wedges exists that, as part of the barrel's rotation, the bottommost barrel has its outermost part peeled back.

Inside the clip, a simple springboard is placed so that it pushes the bullets upward when there is room to go upward. Essentially, if an empty revolver barrel reaches the bottom part of the weapon, where the clip is, the outer part is pulled back, allowing the clip to refill the barrel. As the revolving barrels continue to rotate, the wedges in the rear part of the feed no longer hold the outer barrel back, and the spring pushes it back into place. When it is pushed back into place, the wedge on the outside part of it shoves the remaining bullets in the clip downwards as it makes room for itself.

Granted, this offers little practical advantage over a standard clip or revolving ammo feed, but it could plausibly be done.

I feel immensely validated by your articulate and educated post. I do feel a little let down that you failed to mention the rainbow magic that I previously mentioned fuels the whole mechanism of the rifle, however.

The Rainbow Magic keeps the coefficient of friction down so the system doesn't wear or jam. *Nods*

While I'm at it, the Gyrojet rifle is a perfectly plausible (if probably inefficient) design, and while the Murdelyzer is probably not an effective weapon in real life, the alternate universe that Fallout takes place in has some... ...interesting laws of physics that apply at the nuclear level, meaning that such a device would likely be a devastatingly effective weapon.

Well, the Murdelizer is a disintegrator weapon, so it works by disrupting the forces that hold matter together. Some disrupt intermolecular bonds, causing the target to fall apart into dust or ash. The most powerful, like the Murdelizer, somehow disrupt the nuclear force and tear atomic nuclei apart, causing targets to disperse as a haze of subatomic particles. :) Zap!! As you said, there will have to be some, well, interesting laws of physics at the molecular or atomic level for these weapons to work...

Love the retro-futuristic weapons!! :+favlove: These really suggest an atom-punk 50's style future. I love the Mk 41 Gyrojet .51BMG Rifle's little finned rocket-rounds - they are so cute. :heart: What does the VT-191 "Murdelizer" Meson Neutralizer do, exactly? Does it neutralize the strong nuclear force, cutting along the mesons' lines of magnetic force "so any object simply ceases to exist!!"? That would make it a kind of nuclear disintegrator. Or does it simply project a blast of nuclear particles, incinerating the target? I'm guessing the VT-191 is a nuclear disintegrator based its the name. That is exactly the sort of exterminator of prodigious proportions I need for my trip to the second planet orbiting Alpha Centauri...

calebcleveland Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
The former is correct! The "Murdelizer" does, in fact, project a pleasing yellow ray that dispels the "strong" force, reducing your target to a dispersion of flavorless fundamental particles and a clean skeleton, fit for display or simple looting.

:iconsagittarius-a-star:
Sagittarius-A-star Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Student Digital Artist
That's what I thought!! Now I really want one...

It is a little odd that the "Murdelizer" leaves a skeleton- wouldn't a ray that powerful obliterate skeletal matter as easily as flesh? Perhaps the designers found out how to disrupt the lighter elements like hydrogen, oxygen, etc. while leaving calcium and other slightly heavier atoms intact, or something like that- but who really cares when they have a nice skeleton to display? :D It is always classy for disintegration rays to disintegrate flesh slightly faster than bone (perhaps because the denser atoms that make up the skeleton take longer to disintegrate), so you see the silhouette of your victim's skeleton as they fade away. I suspect a real disintegration ray- if such weapons are possible- would not leave any debris behind, but I do want to see the outline of my enemy's skeleton slowly fade away even as the flesh disperses as various fundamental particles. Is there a radiation hazard associated with using the "Murdelizer"?

:iconcalebcleveland:
calebcleveland Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Again, you are correct! You certainly seem to be discerning regarding your finer particle weapons! Elements heavier than oxygen (O) have larger nuclei and "stronger" gluons, which take longer for our patented Murdelization™ ray to decay.
We appreciate your interest in the Murdelizer's radioactive safety record. Please rest assured that the beam screens, non-magnetic collars, superinsulating cone and thermal screen are tested up to 55k, well within U.S.S.A. regulations for "Family Fun Time". Besides, the pleasing afterglow one embraces after a long day of Murdelizing™ can provide many added bonuses, such as reading the paper in the dark, not needing to shave, and never again needing a "raincoat"!

Well, one of my goals in life is to design exotic and unlikely ray-guns capable of destroying any object made of what we call "matter". :) It makes sense that higher atomic mass elements will take longer to decay. What does the Murdelizer use for ammunition? A miniature nuclear battery?

I have a question about the Mk 41 Gyrojet .51BMG Rifle- can it fire different kinds of rocket ammunition? Say, antipersonnel, armor piercing, biochemical, concussion, explosive, gas, incendiary, marking, netting/binding, smoke, and thermonuclear?

:iconcalebcleveland:
calebcleveland Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Clearly, you are a true American. The Murdelizer uses a patented piezoelectric power plant, much more efficient than your common drugstore atomic battery; it comes with a factory warranty of 25 years, a half-life of 50 years, and a money-back guarantee!

The Mk 41's payloads are as many and varied as the fertile imagination of this country's best and brightest! The individual rockets are available in a variety of different warheads, far beyond the scope of the first primitive gyrojet weapons. The small size of the belted rounds do limit their individual destructive power, but the Mk 41's high rate of fire, colorful contrails, and delightful shffshffshffshffshffPOWPOWPOWPOWPOW sound more than makes up for it! Fire away!

Sorry, the mechanics are fanciful in regards to this particular gun. I was aiming for something ridiculously huge- and powerful-looking, subscribing to Geoff Darrow's design aesthetic for "Hard Boiled".
Basically, just unplug your brain and imagine blasting the heads off Deathclaws with that puppy.
