The lightest "weapon" in the game. Sends out a small "staple" of energy that is primarily used for closing up wounds (repeated use however is not recommended). A light handheld tool that acts like an SMG in combat.

Detail-wise it's about as simple as the weapons will get. I dig the design, but had trouble painting it. Not sure if I'm just rusty or it's just kind of "simple".

It indeed reminds me of a staple gun, as well as Dead Space's plasma cutter (the frame without the turning muzzle).
However it also is remminicent of a nail/rivet gun

I don't suppose anyone's mentioned that clips haven't been used for anything but pre-loading magazines since the late 60's?

Most guns have angled primary grips - ergonomically speaking, an angled back strap offers better support to the thumb and palm. Very few have vertical grip angles - the only ones that I can think of are the Borchardt C93 and Uzi. Of course there's a bit of variation when it comes to preferences, you have people who swear by the 1911 grip angle, and others who swear by Glock's.

On the subject of comparisons, to be honest there's a point where it's very difficult to make something that is 100% unique - something that shares no common features with anything else out there. That being said though, most comparisons I see thrown around on this site are far-fetched, or maybe only 10-25% similar at best.

You are correct. I actual used a staple gun as a base for the design. If it's awkward in design when it's being modeled for the character to hold we'll alter it.

While I DO see the resemblance to the main Dead Space gun....it's not that similar. It's only the shape, and beyond that, it looks nothing like the Dead Space gun.
Great job! :)

Very awesome design. I don't see the resemblance to Dead Space. My only quip is that it would be better for industrial application, like light space construction or somesuch, as opposed to trying to seal wounds with MOLTEN METAL. Still, it would be a a totally "brown-town in the downtown" situation if you had to kill space horrors with the future's staple gun. Bravo.

Yeah I've been on the fence about it. A straight up staple gun would be a little too worthless, but some sort of medical or industrial application would make it better. I'm sure it'll develop a bit more as we go! :)

I find this sort of funny, since I've got other people saying it looks exactly like the Plasma Cutter.

I can never seem to get "Potemkin Buster" out of my head. As soon as I read "Potemkin" I was expecting the fist hulking beast of a man. This is pretty cool anyways.

Dead Space 2's plasma cutter looks completely different.

I'm guessing it's the "feel" and color choices. Because they definitely do not look the same.
