Guns! Glorious guns! Here’s a look at the handcrafted arsenal of Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus (1)

When the apocalypse comes, you can bet that a lot of things are going to vanish. Enjoy driving your car? Well buck up kiddo, because even if you found an entire tanker of fuel sitting out in the middle of nowhere, chances are that the precious liquid within will be more useless than a condom machine at the Vatican as petrol happens to have a shelf life.

Worldwide communication? Say goodbye to the infrastructure supporting that system without a team of engineers to constantly maintain them. Heck, even a fresh loaf of bread will be more valuable than diamonds in that brave new world. One thing that you can count on is having plenty of guns and ammo after the bombs have fallen.

Humanity has a love for guns, there are more bullets in the world than grains of sand on a beach and your new tinfoil hat-wearing neighbor probably has a forge that cranks out ammo on the off chance that you run out of the stuff. Yup, there will be blood in the post-apocalypse, as well as a few unique weapons which showcases humanity’s ability to still find novel ways to murder one another when given the chance.

Upcoming Russian FPS Metro Exodus is well aware of this, and happens to have an entire arsenal of weapons that happen to be based on reliable Jack of all trades icons and more murderous MacGuyvers that were churned out by survivors. See for yourself, in the trailer below. Or the gallery below that, because I’m a nice comrade, da?

For each weapon that we have in the game, I think the creative process goes on for more than a year with each weapon. We’re trying to make these guns out of parts that weren’t meant to be a weapon at all.

Metro Exodus is out on February 15, although it’ll be facing some stiff competition in the form of Crackdown 3, Far Cry New Dawn and Jump Force. Tough opponents, but publisher Deep Silver ain’t worried at all for the future of this franchise at all.

      I would watch it, save for fear of my wife walking in.
      I REALLY should be working, and not be distracted by games words. Curse you critical hit!

      I tend to agree to a point. It is interesting to see what arsenal I will have access to, but at the same time, the take-away for me with the other Metro titles was the environments. You were constantly on edge walking narrow subways and dark side rooms, with limited ammo to push back all the bad things that wanted your warm human flesh!!!

        Yeah, that’s exactly it. I like cool weapons and customization, but Metro to me was never about the weapons. They made ammo a scarce commodity and now it just seems…more like a shooter.

      I disagree.
      Should humanity ever be faced with such a situation, do you think they will keep living in a place until they die, or try to move to better place?
      People have hope, it is one of our best traits, and while people have hope, they will want something better

        Talking about the context of Metro, not really in the general sense. The previous games are set in a post apocalyptic world too with humanity pushed against the rope, but ammo and weapons, being their way to fight back, was scarce making them feel precious and meaningful. It felt believable and because ammo was used as a currency too it really raised the stakes of what it means to fight back…now…it just seems like just another shooter. Go guns blazing and stuff.

          I saw a lot of the classic stealth moves as well, so I’m happy about this

    Do I get this or continue with my love for Fallout 4?

    This article could have been written a few days before it’s release, if you think about it.
    C’mon devs. Where is the Originality!!!

      Old ones like the type 56, AKM and 74.

      BTW the type 56 stamped version and AKM is so easy to make, they can probably manufacture them in a post apocolytpic world with few simple hand operated sheetmetal stamp presses.
