Why don't FPS games have the Desert Eagle anymore?

It may seem "cool" but it's a garbage handgun.

It's large, impractical, and not designed for infantry combat.


He's talking about video games.


My point still stands.

IMO, the fad of it being cool has passed, which is why it's no longer a regular in video games.


No it doesn't. The points you listed only apply to an actual Desert Eagle in real life situations. TC is talking about video games, video games are fantasy. The whole craze of the Desert Eagle in video games was that it's a big ass handgun with a big punch. People using them in games sure as hell weren't thinking "it's large, impractical, and not designed for infantry combat."

Now you calling it a fad and saying it has passed is a different idea and one that I agree with.


Given the obsession with realism in games these days it is indeed a valid point

Even the AK-47 has been taken out of the more recent CoD/BF. It happens.

No, it doesn't. Video games are still fantasy, majority of fps games aren't simulators. The only people calling these games realistic are 12 year olds obsessed with war and guns.

Video games are only using their image, not their real world performance. Otherwise we wouldn't see so many games where the desert eagle is so accurate or how the m4 out damages the ak47. Sooooo realistic.

This pretty much. I heard its so heavy, usually you over compensate and hit the target slightly above where you are actually aiming.

It would be like playing rainbow six Vegas 2 villa (a small cqb map) with a big brutal m60 lmg if you got it on the game. And you do get lmgs btw.

Same thing that happened to katanas and ray guns and mini guns.

The world has regrettably and unfortunately moved onto to more boring and 'realistic' weapons.

That's because it's an antiquated piece of s***. There are much better variants of the original design out there. Such as the AN-94 and AEK-971. Hell, even the AK-74 blows the original out of the water.

If game companies are going for realism then the ak-47 just can't hold its own against modern weapons. The 74, sure, just about although it's still not great. But even Russia has been looking to upgrade from it for the past 20 years.

Its best in Resident Evil games. No other game should have it.

"Even" Russia? You do realize that the majority of the world's AK-47s are NOT in Russia, right?
