SABOT by lonefirewarrior SABOT by lonefirewarrior

The SRS99 from Halo is probably the most scientifically sound and hardcore sniper rifle in any video game. I've put it in the hands of many models over the years and it never ceases to look intimidating and ultra lethal. It was clearly designed by someone who understands why science fiction is a separate genre from fantasy(or at least understood it while he/she made this weapon. Clearly this thought was lost when the other UNSC weapons were created). A great sci fi design is one that has a strong real world influence. In this case, that would be the NTW-20. Even the ammunition it fires is real to an extent. Take the 14.5x114mm round used by the PTRD in WWII for taking down tanks and turn it into an APFSDS(modern tanks fire much larger versions of this) and you've got a projectile capable of punching through most armor or just completely eradicating a softer target with a solid center mass hit(good thing the Geneva Conventions don't say shit about genocidal aliens).


Anyways, here's Sarah Kerrigan about to ruin someone/thing's day on some distant world.

As one that carried this size and weight of weapon system, if she were to fire from that stance with that load she would no longer have a shoulder.  You would have to prop on something and lean into the weapon or lay down and brace.  Really good job on the render

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for GOD has given me the Staff of 14.5mm Divine Intervention to scare the crap out of my enemies. 

Here's a thought: how about making a picture with all the famous snipers you can think of? Or something similar.

Actually, a .50 BMG is 12.7mm.  The Halo sniper fires a round that is 14.5mm, about 2cm bigger.

As a shooter, I really appreciate your understanding of firearms.  I look at a lot of gorgeous renders of weapons that would never be feasible in actual combat with awkward site rails, stocks, ammo placement, etc...anything that makes a weapon actually work ergonomically.

They already exist as I mentioned. You're just not allowed to use anti-tank weapons on a human being that isn't in said tank.

Your ideas behind the technology in your render are pretty cool. I agree with SpartanPrincess, in that I'd like to see your technical thoughts on... well, just about anything else you decide to render.

Totally agree with you about the Halo Assault Rifle, btw. That thing is strange. DMR is more thought out (then again, that thing didn't show up until they were putting way more thought into their weapons).

As for the picture's composition, I like how the gun is perfectly centered, whereas normally in this type of picture you might find the shooter being centered. Nice touch.

Great piece of work. Do you share your ideas on technical accuracies of halo weapons somewhere else? I'd be interested in knowing a little what you mean. I'll just go ahead and ask first: What do you think of the smg? Scientifically sound?

Actually, I think the SMG looks alright. And unlike the other UNSC weapons, we got to see how modular it could be in Halo 3 ODST. One of the weapons I have the biggest problems with is the assault rifle. I'm pretty sure no military, regardless of how much technology advances in the future, would equip the majority of their soldiers with weapons they can't aim properly without a HUD equipped helmet.

While I understand your problem, the problem of the HUD is addressed in the lore. All UNSC personnel are given implants which project a HUD directly into their irises. This is why soldiers can use the scope on the M6D, M6SOCOM, and M6G without a helmet. The HUD can also be equipped on something no larger than a pair of sunglasses. Think of it like our modern day electronic binoculars, but built into a computer chip or glasses. Also, the Assault rifle is supposed to have built in iron sights that can be flipped out for use. Thats how soldiers train with it initially to qualify with the rifle. Just my 2 cents.

Haha true that. What do you think of the ammunition though? Are bullets really still the future for warfare? Okay, lasers are expensive and use up a lot of energy but you know. I was hoping for something at least

So this rifle is just futuristic version of Barret guns :D

Very nice render, but I guess she should set the bipod on this concrete to decrease the weight of the barrel and by this increase the stability of aim. Unless she's much stronger than she looks or the gravity there is weaker than this on Earth.

I know that she's Kerrigan, but that's all I know about her and Starcraft story :XD:

Whenever I think "Sniper Rifle," that is the exact gun that comes to mind, even if the character wouldn't normally use it.
