Weapon Class?[edit]

So I was wondering if we should begin breaking down weapons by class? We know of at least 8 different weapon classes thus far: Rocket Launcher, Machinegun, Hand Cannon, Pulse Rifle, Scout Rifle, Sniper Rifle, Shotgun & Fusion Rifle. Should we start grouping them by class & maybe add a "Named" or "Notable Exotics" category to each one for the exotics? So far, all we seem to have in the "Weapons" section are the named weapons...But that's just my .02 Glimmer... - DJenser 13:09, 19 June 2013 (EDT)

We break it up into weapon types and whether they're exotic or not, I say. This is craZboy557, signing off. 20:25, 19 June 2013 (ED

A table perhaps? JHWRAITHSHOT I have but one thing to say... Can it shoot FIRE? 20:56, 19 June 2013 (EDT)

You'll need citations for all these, you know that, right?This is craZboy557, signing off. 06:35, 20 June 2013 (EDT)

I know but I don't have time now. Could someone else do that? It's not a problem if you can't. Just don't edit/delete the pages until I've added them.

I'll get to work. These were from E3, right? This is craZboy557, signing off. 07:18, 20 June 2013 (EDT)

Correct. These images were projected on a large display outside the Bungie pavilion at E3 2013. Apparently they cycled every 20 minutes or so. Datto was in line for about 2 hours, & was able to get a total of 9 screenshots, 8 of which were worth a damn. Additionally, the weapon carried by the Titan in the demo appears to be called a Haaken "BS"(?). Not sure what sort of rifle it is at this point... To be honest, I'm not even sure if the model actually says "BS", or if that's just a logo of some sort...But that's just my .02 Glimmer... - DJenser 11:10, 20 June 2013 (EDT)

I think we need to explain how we know about 'Fate of All Fools' and 'Cudgel of Xanthor' a little better. How did we see the names and not any actual weapons? PerseusSpartacus (talk) 18:48, 7 September 2013 (EDT)

They mentioned them in the most recent ViDoc. Always use the DMR. This is craZboy557, signing off. 21:00, 7 September 2013 (EDT)

Listing[edit]

I'm starting to think that it would be better to just list weapon classes and un-categorized weapons rather than making this a master list. Every time a weapon is added, it needs to go in at least two places—its weapon type page, and on its weapon type template. Think it can do without a third.--Hawki (talk) 21:32, 16 June 2014 (EDT)

Variants[edit]

I'm beginning to suspect that there are going to be a bunch of core models for guns with a lot of variants. What I mean by this is that we have a Duke Mk. 10 and a Duke Mk. 44, both appear to use the same model but have different stats. Same for Trax Callum I and Trax Callum II-A, PSI Umbra-I and PSI-Umbra-III, and so on. Same might be true for armor as I'm seeing Type Os, Type 1,s Type 3s, etc. We won't really know for sure until we get to see the full library of guns, but I'm thinking that if that's the case, new articles should focus on the core gun and then list all the variants with their stats. For now I'm just going to go on the safe side and list every name I find, but I wouldn't suggest making individual articles for all of them just yet. OmgHAX! (talk) 10:34, 25 June 2014 (EDT)

List[edit]

Items list, including weapons. Come one, come all. Time's short for me right now I'm afraid however.--Hawki (talk) 05:36, 28 July 2014 (EDT)

More Images Needed[edit]

The wiki needs more weapon images added, specifically one for each name, class and type of weapon so they can be better differentiated between what and which weapon is. I'm already searching for more suitable images that would work for this, but additional help would be appreciated. If anyone cares to help out a little more. --Xamikaze330 (talk) 11:38, 17 September 2014 (EDT)Xamikaze330
