nah its still in prototype. plus the devs aint *i-need-a-broader-vocab* to do another weapon. we got the sopmod already.
plus, we just want the damn game, not tonnes o' guns which just *i-need-a-broader-vocab* up gameplay, giving that all guns work the same way: shoot, see if he's dead, and shoot again.

Nice weapon, but its a prototype and the G36 looks cooler and is probably better. :P

Plus, the devs make their point.

All XM weapon projects and roll-out plans have been cancelled... The M4 may ultimately be replaced with the SCAR or the some derivative of H&K's M4 work-a-like/derivative the 416... But considering the state of the U.S. economy even that may be decades... The XM·8 is deader then the OICW...

The M4 sucks, in my opinion. I'd much wrather have an AK-47. You could roll in a *i-need-a-broader-vocab* mud pit and still be able to shoot it. And the M4 would get jammed after that first grain of sand entered.

I agree completely Silentcrisis, the M4 would be my last choice of firearm IRL and generally in games just on principle.

Sadly a very large part of the Western 'Free World' uses weapons that are M16/M4 deravatives... So in order to be realistic, a game does need to offer some form of the weapon.

To be fair the SOCOM, and H&K 416 M4 deravitives are really fine rifles; very easy to control, rugged, very accurate, and have the worlds largest after-market of precision parts and accessories.

Though I would agree that even the best M4 still has way too many moving parts for something you're going to hang your life on -- it is a very appropriate weapon for the Urban settings of TC:E with it's low recoil, light weigh, high ROF, and superb accuracy.

I believe they mentioned that the current candidate for the xm8 rifle was a H&k design. but the bad thing about is that the heatsheilds would melt after continuos fire and the gun had alot of bugs. The design does look good an very stylish for a gun, kinda looks like a toy tho. There are still alot of designs from different companies that they are testing out to see which one gets the name M8 assault rifle. Didnt I mention xm8 before? I emntioned it to be an objective where the terrorist will have to steal it from the specops, the catch is they can use it too.

Did you mean the H&K 416 XenoKiLLer?

I hadn't heard anything about heat shield problems but I wouldn't be suprised. There's a nice short barrel CAR version of the rifle too, that would suit TC:E really well...

No XK, the XM·8 is CANCELLED, the weapon above is the H&K 416 that will likely replace the XM project...
