Modern Firearms Description
Modern Firearms introduces a LOT of current real world weapons to the game, at this time mostly rifles. 
There are several base 'families' of weapons including the AR15, AK, HK416/7, ACR (Magpul Masada), HK MP5, SG 550-552 and many more, all of which are completely customisable at a workbench, creating variants from suppressed CQB shorties to DMR variants of most. 

Customisation is NOT possible however with only vanilla game components- you'll have to find or buy parts in the game either as single parts or by scrapping the weapons you take from your enemy. It is Idlesheeps belief (a belief shared by his team) that you shouldn't be able to build a military spec rifle from wonderglue and scrapping an iron roof. 

Another point of controversy with this mod is that the damage seems very high to many players, and as it features full level list integration combat is either too easy or too difficult depending on which end of the AR15 you're standing at. The reasoning of Idlesheep (again backed by his team) is that being shot should hurt. Being shot twice should stop the hurt altogether. 

These weapons therefore do not follow the vanilla game balance. They don't scale with level AT ALL, so the damage at level 15 will be the same as it is at level 115. (Weapons are still affected by perks however, and you may find yourself needing those at high levels.) 

The balance is found in your enemy also using these weapons, so combat will be swift and deadly. Another feature of this mod is scripting which allows you to change tactics without using your inventory and we believe that the resulting seamless and vicious combat gameplay is a huge improvement on the vanilla game.
The Firearms

ArmaLite AR 15

The classic AR family you all know and love, featuring customisation as varied as the real world rifles. Different calibers, parts from the best manufacturers and tactical variations possible from CQBR to DMR, complete with optics and attachments including functional underbarrel weapons.

Heckler & Koch 416/417

The H&K refinement of the AR15 platform, as flexible as it's a American cousin, again customisable in any way you like from CQBR to DMR, and compatible with the same wide variety of optics and attachments.

Heckler & Koch G36

Standard rifle of the German Bundeswehr, a modular rifle that can be built as a CQBR, DMR or even an LMG just like the real thing. The usual array of attachments include the G36's unique carry handle optics.
FN Herstal F2000
A bullpup design allowing a compact rifle without reducing barrel length, made by Fabrique Nationale of Belgium.
FN Herstal SCAR-L/H
The Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle, designed to fill all possible roles for a battle rifle- from CQBR through DMR to LMG. Features two caliber variants.
SIG 550 Family
The latest generation of Sig Sauer modular assault rifle. From the DMR/sniper 550-1 model through the CQB 552 commando to the 553 variants designed to use Soviet 7.62 magazines. Fully customisable with the usual attachments.
Magpul Masada ACR
A cutting edge rifle family from one of America's most innovative weapon manufacturers, modular design allowing the range of customisation you've now come to expect of the weapons in this mod. Give me some time to persuade Idlesheep to put in the 7.62 magwell so we can make true Massoud models.
M14 Variants
The early Vietnam war era rifle, too heavy but more accurate and powerful than required for general purpose, now developed into many marksman roles and fielded in a number of configurations both with and without pistol grips. Make it how you like it with our selection of attachments.
Walther Arms WA2000
A bullpup sniper designed to be shorter than a standard rifle and lose nothing in accuracy or muzzle velocity. Due to the expense of producing it only 176 were ever made. Of course it's customisable, but we didn't forget the ironsights- Walther didn't put any on either.
AS50
British made anti material rifle, with lightweight titanium construction and a rear mounted 'leg' or grip for increased stability when bipod mounted. Send 5 rounds of .50bmg accurately 1.5km downrange in less than 2 seconds- if your rig will handle it.
DSR-1
German made sniper/AMR, featuring bullpup design and a spare magazine forward of the trigger guard for quicker reloads. Has achieved 20- 30 cm groupings at 1000 yards with human operators giving an accuracy of only 0.69 Minutes Of Angle. Impressive and deadly.
