Art Effects Update

Our Lead Effects Artist, Bruno, explains the changes behind a number of effects in version 4, in particular the way smoke from smoke grenades behaves and a new approach to depicting muzzle energy.

 

TrueSky Experiments

We’ve been running tests on Truesky for Squad and we’re pleased to say that the results have been stunning. We’ll let these test screenshots speak for themselves.

New Weapons in the Pipeline

We have a number of interesting and unique weapons that are nearing the end of the art pipeline, (their actual implementation into the game is still TBD)

KS-23

A 23mm rifled shotgun originating from the Soviet era, the KS-23 fires shells that are considerably larger than most typical western combat shotguns.

 

PPSH-41

A classic World War 2 era Russian sub-machine gun that has survived into the modern era, the PPSH-41 is capable of delivering pistol-caliber ammunition at incredibly high rates of fire. We are expecting to include two different kinds of magazines when this weapon ships, a 71-round Drum, or a 35-round box magazine.
