Potemkin: Evaporator by ionen Potemkin: Evaporator by ionen
Potemkin Dev Blog: [link]

Another gun concept. The evaporator. On impact it sucks the moisture out of a large area, literally turning anything in the area into dust. Used for flash-destroying vegitation

This weapon works similarly to a grenade launcher or rocket launcher in function, it's the only "heavy" weapon in the game and ammo is exceedingly rare.

More like "dessication" than disintigration.

Hummm... I see this being an peice of repurposed heavy equipment, I like the concept, if you have storage lockers in the game I will definitely place this in there for backup. I see where the inspiration of others comes in but where your own work stands out. I like how it seems very intrustrial and also being in our time to come, future. Love the look, can't wait to see the 3d model.

Oh, this gun sounds freaking awesome! (at least the potential for it does)
Don't go killing off your ammo.

Very interesting concept and design! Both the idea of evaporation as a weapon and the side-loaded cell are new to me. I've been having a hard time finding innovative ideas in fiction lately, so this piece comes as a much welcome breath of fresh air. Kudos!

You know that that's not what evaporation is right?

Evaporation is when a liquid turns into gas.

What you're describing is disintegration.

Definition of DISINTEGRATE
transitive verb: to break or decompose into constituent elements, parts, or small particles

It pulls all the moisture out, which is turning liquid into gas. The solid elements that are left over turn into dust because there's nothing to hold them together.

Disintegration would be completely destroying it. Similar, but different.

I suppose that makes sense, though disintegration ("To become reduced to components, fragments, or particles" from the free dictionary) would also be accurate in my opinion.

Very nice design either way.

Thanks.

I debated calling it a Disintegrator, too, but the general idea is that it'd be for flash-frying vegetation by taking all the moisture out of an area, so evaporator seemed a little more appropriate since its specifically made for living tissues.
