Also, in my personal opinion... the vast majority of the centered versions of the weapons were pretty ugly and/or made absolutely no sense. Most notably those of the Combat Shotgun, Heavy Assault Rifle, and Rocket Launcher.

Not to mention, you don't get to see as much of the beauty of the complexity and intricacy of the weapons so much.

And also, holding them angled is much more natural than holding them centered, and even looks the part... unless you're taking a careful and precise shot. But even then, it's difficult to naturally be able to hold the weapon truly centered.

I have to agree with you there. I honestly don't get this fetish people have with centered weapons. Don't get me wrong, centered weapons are capable of looking good, but for the most part it just looks strange and akward at best.

Thanks! :D

It's the nostalgia. Because the classic Doom weapons were made that way.

If someone does want to do the centered versions, I'd like that. But there's no reason to ask for it in Necronixxus' thread - someone else can do the honors, if they want.

Some of MetaDoom's sprites are fairly promising for such an endeavor... such as the Grenade Launcher and Lightning Gun. For the Reaper, you just need to take out the Unmaker part and replace that with the finger-like appendages. Though that'd mean using custom graphics (unless you can rip them from somewhere and make it match).

Shivers also shared these on Tumblr, but I wouldn't want people bugging him to finish them when he's probably busy with so many other incredible things.

Might not be the right place for this, but I don't know where else to ask. Did anyone make a mod that just replaces the default doom weapons with these without adding special properties or rebalancing the game?

I believe I saw one the other day on ModDB... but remember, with new weapons always comes rebalancing, no matter how unintentional... unless it merely replaces the weapon sprites, and absolutely nothing else (but that'd be hellishly boring)...

Eh, fair point, maybe Im just boring. Just love having modern day right sided weapons, but also love that useless pistol

Same here, on account of the angled weapons. ;)
