The phase rifle got another art pass and might get even another one! Were constantly improving.
The portal system he is talking about I think is our new "cell and portal". It is a pretty major engine update that without getting to technical allows us better streaming techniques and draw optimizations for better frame rate and more complex things on screen!
It is a good thing that the Phase Rifle is getting changed because it does not look good the way it is. When I showed my friends the screenshot with that gun, the first thing they said was "Why does that gun look so crap?" I couldnt help but agree. It looked too.....blocky. Hope you guys can work that out. :)
It has to look more like a sniper rifle. Take something like the Intervention or the Barrett .50 Cal, a modern-looking sniper rifle, then make it look futuristic with things like a bullpup format, a huge futuristic scope, and a good paint job. You have to make it look menacing and long, not fat and blocky.
