Falcon Fox’s assessments on the Firearms of Unturned:

 

DISCLAIMER:

Please note that these are my own humble opinions, and as such should not be mistaken for the opinions of anyone remotely sane whatsoever, may not in any way represent reality or some semblance therefore and are in fact just some words on a screen.  Use at your own risk, some assembly required, batteries not included. Caution!! Choking hazard! May induce vomiting or extreme discomfort!

 

Ok now that that’s over with, here we go! As you may or may not know ( or indeed care) I play a free Steam Game called Unturned. It's kinda like DayZ had sex with Roblox and this is what turned up. its a fun and silly game that can be played single player or multi-player. any, in the game there are a range of firearms available to find and here is my assessment of them.

 

Shotguns:

 

Double barrel – a side by side break action shotgun with the stock and barrels cut down for close ranged action, and spawns by the arfload at the farms sometimes – massive damage potential at short range but only holds 2 shots and reloads on the slow side – can make a good backup gun, just add a red dot or holo sight and your good to go!

 

Lever action shotgun – as the name states this is a lever action shotgun, holds 4 rounds, reloads on the slow side – many view this as the worst gun in the game and while it is the least powerful of the shotguns it can still do a lot of damage at close range. the sights can be upgraded. – not overly fond of it myself  

  Note: I wish this model was changed from a shotgun to a rifle, and used to replace the Outfield , it could hold 10 rounds, and be reloaded with 1 box of civilian ammo.  It could have the same range as the Outfield, and be able to mount only a scope.  In realistic terms it is a far more common rifle action than shotgun action, and at least in the USA, the lever action rifle is a very popular and common hunting rifle.

 

Novuh – the quintessential 12 gauge pump – best all round shotgun in the game – I can see why this is kept limited to only police locations as it easily outclasses the other two shotguns in usefulness and versatility plus the only one that takes barrel attachments, add a suppressor, red dot or holo sight and tac light for added fun! – My shotgun of choice

 

Pistols:

 

Colt – it’s a Colt .45, nuff said!

Seriously though, this is probably the first pistol you’ll find, its common as dirt, the mags for it are just as common and it does the job – works ok, wish it held more than 7 rounds though, makes it a bit pricy ammo wise, it almost feels like a waste to reload…however you can just collect mags and keep it fed by crafting mags together instead of using civilian bullets

 

Magnum –hard to find and feed - nice damage per round but very pricy on ammo – 5 rounds and the mags (speed loaders) for it are rare as hen’s teeth – Not my choice of sidearm

 

Berette – good step up from the Colt, much better in ammo and does a tiny bit more damage per shot.  The downside is it is rare and the mags are even more so but at 13 rounds per it doesn’t hurt as much to reload one and is much better in the heat of battle - This is my personal sidearm

 

Desert Falcon – Big Boom, hard hitting but rare and also as painful to feed as the Colt. Does the most damage of any handgun but makes a heck of a noise doing it. Too rare for my tastes but at least it uses the same mags as the colt so you can use the same trick of just crafting mags together rather than wasting civilian bullets  boxes on it.

 

Assault rifles:

 

Swissgewehr – only assault rifle without a full auto setting which makes it less effective in PVP close quarters but still a good rifle at range, makes a nice ad-hock sniper or DMR rifle and can use any NATO type mag including tracer and 100 round drums. Downside is the need for Military bullets which are harder to come by than Civilian types

 

Mapelstrike –Full Auto fun that while a very good weapon that many people swear by, I’m not too fond of it myself. As a weapon its fine, good damage, several styles of mags and ammo to use and good range make for a decent all round weapon but shares the Swissgewehr’s same ammo downside. It really is a decent weapon but not my first choice.

 

Zubeknakov – full auto fun on a budget! – This is my Assault weapon of choice. Full auto or semi auto it packs the same punch as the others and doesn’t need the harder to come by bullets to do it, this thing eats civilian ammo which is much more common. The downside is it’s rare as heck and it’s mags are even more so. Add a silencer , foregrip and X6 or X7 scope and your ready to face the zombie hoards and any pesky enemy teammates too.

 

AR32 – new to 3.0, dono much about this one yet but it looks like another AR-15/C7 clone. My guess is it uses the same NATO mags and accessories and is a carbine version of the Maplestrike, possibly shorter range and such. The model looks shorter at least. So perhaps this is the M4/C8 version.

 

Bolt action rifles:

 

Mosen – It’s a Mosin Nagant, with all that implies. Good damage, easy to find as are it’s mags but only 5 rounds and slightly shorter range than the Outfield. It will accept a wide range of scopes and barrel attachments. Pimp one out and you have a good second line type sniper weapon. Another plus is it uses civilian bullets so it’s easy to keep fed, if a bit pricy. Again this is one you can just keep crafting mags together rather than wasting a whole box of bullets on.  – I hardly use one but they work in a pinch. In terms of realism, the Mosin is one arm that is found worldwide, in fact China and the former USSR used to literally throw these things at 3rd world countries  by the boatload if they even looked like they’d go communist, and they have been exported to everywhere in numbers that just stagger the mind!

 

Outfield – another good and easy to obtain rifle, with a tad more range than the Mosen.  It has just about all the same advantages and disadvantages of the above, although for some reason I just don’t like it as much, and I couldn’t really tell you why aside from I like the look of the Mosen more. Good entry level weapon. In real terms this gun is nowhere near as common as the Mosin and if I had to pick one gun to loose in the game this would be it.

 

Timberwolf – a real sniper weapon outfitted with the most powerful scope in the game, and has the longest range but uses Military rounds and is harder to find than the Lost Ark. Its mythical mags may spawn only under a special suspension of the laws of averages and for some odd reason it doesn’t accept a flash hider or silencer, which is bad at anything closer than extreme ranges in PVP. On the flip side it is a massive damage dealer and in the right paws can be deadly. – not my cup of tea

 

Semi auto:

Matamorez – easily my favorite firearm in Unturned,  hard to find but not as hard as the Timberwolf, uses only 1 box of Civilian bullets  to reload a mag(10rds), and the mags are easier to find than the actual gun. Spawns with a X7 scope on it but does better with a X12 or X20.  Does a lot of damage per shot and has its own built in silencer. This makes a damn fine sniper weapon and If you get your paws on one and a couple mags, you’re golden.  

 

SMG:

Note: I don’t use the SMG’s in game much simply because it’s not my play-style, but they do have a place, they make a good defensive arm or raider gun and can chew up an enemy very fast if you know what you’re doing with one.

 

UZY –  in my opinion this is the better of the two, it has a decent rate of fire, can be pimped out like a boss and is easier to find and so are it’s mags. On the flip side it doesn’t have the punch and can only fire full auto so be prepared with plenty of reloads.

 

Proninety – I loath this gun, or rather its RL counterpart so my opinion of it in-game is heavily biased.

Pros- ummm…ok selectable fire is good, it can be as pimped out as the Uzy and…err…yea that.

Cons – harder to find, and its mags are nearly as mythical as the Timberwolf’s.  Plus I just hate it, sorry I just do.

Real instructions at a test station.

“If a popup appears on the screen that says “done, please continue”, then press “continue” this will cause another popup to popup which will ask you to confirm the first popup. Press “confirm”. If the first popup does not popup, a popup will popup telling you the first popup did not popup and will ask if you want to retry or abort. Press “retry”. The first popup will then popup that says “done, please continue”, then press “continue” this will cause another popup to popup which will ask you to confirm the first popup. Press “confirm”. Then a popup will popup asking you to verify the process is complete. If the processes is complete , please press “complete or abort”, press “complete”. If the process is NOT complete, complete the process and then press “complete”. If you cannot complete the process, press “Abort” which will take you back to the first popup."

this is sadly, real.
