  • Hey there. I know you haven't been all that active but I've got some big news.

    So NWI has announced a bunch of new plans for the game in this news article. There will be a ton of new guns like the PF940 pistol (will most likely replace the M005), the M240, which I've always wanted to see, the MP5 and the VHS-2 assault rifle. They also said that some weapons from Insurgency and even DOI will be returning.

    So this guy found a bunch of hidden weapons in the game, most of which arent completely functional but still are fully modeled. He found a Galil, an L1A1, an RPK and an MP5K, as well as the full length MP5s that were announced in the article that NWI made.

    The most astounding find would be the M26 MASS shotgun, which is actually fully functional in the game right now. It's a magazine fed, bolt-action shotgun which can be run standalone but can also mount to the bottom of the M4A1 like an M203. It's not useable in that configuration though.

    I just felt like this was worth sharing.

    • Hi, man, thanks for the message! Haven't been active here since some time, indeed...

      This game starts to look finger-licking good. I'm happy they took some extra time. I think they make the right decisions at NWI, they know what their fans want. I myself will not preorder the game, however. I don't really play games anymore, I just have other priorities lately. I will play Sandstorm one day, however, because I think it will be one of the best FPS's I have ever played.

      Thanks again for the message, and sorry for replying so late :))

    • Aw, that's too bad, but you know, at the end of the day, real life should take priority over any video game, no matter how important they may seem to you.

      Thanks for the reply! No need to apologize for being late.

  • Did they remove the M005? I still don't have the game, but people are saying they removed it and I haven't seen it used recently in Sandstorm videos. I've heard that Glock has strict copyright rules when it comes to adding pistols that even remotely resemble Glocks. I've also heard that the devs are going to replace it with another pistol. What kind of pistol would you like to see? I hope they add a .40 S&W or another .45 ACP pistol, since there's already like four 9mm pistols in the game.

    Also, another question: how does damage work in this game? There's no more damage model displayed in the official weapon stats. Does the game use a fancy equation that calculates the "damage" of a gun with its penetration and muzzle velocity? That would be really cool.

  • Hi, haven't talked to you in a while. Is this considered spam? Doesn't seem very constructive. The commenter just pasted the Lose Yourself lyrics.

      Loading editor
    • Yup, I call that spam. Nobody comes to this wiki to read lyrics, although I can't deny getting in Em's flow upon reading the comment :)

    • Thanks man, I really appreciate it! It's indeed good to see how the wiki doesn't die. I'd like to see some more activity, though, and I'll look into how to achieve this. Luckily we have FLATtheFISH, who helps incredibly. It's beautiful to see how there will always be someone who wants to help out.

    • Congrats Ysbert! You certainly deserved it after showing me the ropes to this wiki. Cheers! Get ready for all the content piling in from Sandstorm soon.

  • Ah, glad to see that you've come back for a bit. Not much has happened since you were gone. I guess we're all just anticipating IS's release.

    I've changed (almost) all instances of 'x' (letter) to '×' (multiplication sign) for the cartridges (ex. 5.56x45mm has been changed to 5.56×45mm). We've been using both 'x' and '×' in the past, so I just changed it all to the latter for conistency. I probably missed some but whatever.

    Here's some stuff that I plan on doing, but only if I have time:

    • Update the Galil/Galil SAR page because they haven't been updated in a long time. I also plan on adding my own media for the gun's world models and customization menus for pages that don't have enough. I haven't played Insurgency in a long time.
    • I have IMIC, which I might play just so I can collect enough info for those weapons in the game. If not, I'll just watch some Youtube videos.

    Speaking of Steam, can we be Steam friends? :)

    Thanks.

    • I've seen some of it, but not the whole thing.

      I think I saw a scene with a rifle grenade for the FAL, but it could've just been an oversized suppressor.

      Oh, may I add, it looks really good. It honestly looks like it's a prerendered cinematic, or maybe that's because I've been playing the old one for so long. I kinda like the vaulting mechanic.

      EDIT: It wasn't a grenade. It was just a giant suppressor. It wasn't even an FAL. I'm blind.

    • Hey, can you remove this category? Thanks. As well as that, can you remove that category from the RPK page?

  • Found something weird on some the weapon pages (ex. UZI, AKS-74U, M16A2). The categories appear as part of the text on the information section. Everytime I go into edit, they disappear. I even looked in the source editor and nothing's there. Do you know how to fix this?

    On a completely unrelated note, I see that you play Modern Combat. I've played it a few times, but I prefer Sniper Fury :^>

    • Oopss, thanks for noticing! I tried something with the infobox that would make the name of the weapon in the infobox appear in the category of that game, but apparently the trick doesn't work. I'll check out if it's even possible later.

      About Modern Combat: I loved MC3 and MC4, but those aren't playable anymore on the new iOS. I can't stand MC5 and MCV, they're full of bullshit and money-grabbing elements.

      Alright, thanks.

      About MC5, that's understandable when you consider the direction mobile games are heading. I feel the same way, that's why I often prefer indie games/lesser known games over triple-A titles. That is, if the game can even compete.

  • Glad to see you back. Thanks for making some corrections to the pages I've created. I wasn't too sure on the format and stuff.

    I haven't seen any gameplay of IS yet. Does the addition of the L105 and L85 mean that there's a British faction?

    PS: Can the Al-Kadesiah page be renamed to SVD? I know the Al-Kadesiah made an appearance in the series before the SVD, but it seems kinda odd to refer to the page by a clone of the weapon.

    PSPS: Should the Mk18 Mod 1 page be combined with the Mk18 page? I know that there's a difference between a Mod 0 and Mod 1 but I feel like they are similar enough to be lumped together.

    • Hi!

      No there is no British faction, it'll be Security vs Insurgents again, based on what I've seen so far. I recommend you to check out the news section on the main page, I created a post in which two videos and a channel are mentioned.

      Funny you mention the SVD, I went through recent changes and noticed someone put the info on the Al-Kadesiah. I agree with you that we should rename it to SVD. Same goes for the Mk18, indeed. I'll take care of it.

      Thanks for the help!

    • And thank you for the help as well!

      I've only seen a few seconds of the new gameplay, with the new weapons. I'm pretty busy at the moment but I'll take a further look at them after.

    • Sorry for the bother again. I'm wondering about a few more things as well.

      Should the M16A2 be put on the same page as the M16A4, and have the page be named "M16"?

      And should the M14 DMR from IMIC be lumped into the Mk14 EBR page, and have the page be named "M14"?

      I'm not doing any of this until I get your signal. Anyway, I think that lumping too many pages together is quite unessasary and tends to lead to loss of information. I just wanted to know what you thought, since I was planning on making an M16A2 page. Thanks.

        Loading editor
    • The M16 is a tricky one, because it would be the only two items in one game on one page... I'd say we create two pages for them, and later we see if we change it.

      The Mk14 is a whole upgrade over the M14 DMR, just like the M14 DMR was an upgrade over the M14. They're different weapons, so let's just leave that one like it is. The M14 EBR and Mk14 EBR pages were merged because M14 EBR was just a shorter name for the same weapon.

  • Hi, I'm relatively new to this wiki, and I'm a long time Insurgency fan.

    The photo of the MP5 Insurgency: Sandstorm is actually a G3A3. I don't think it has even been confirmed that the MP5 itself will actually appear in Sandstorm. If you want, I can create a page for the G3.

    Thanks.

      Loading editor
    • Thanks a lot, I was hesitating heavily while creating the article! Yes, if you could create the G3 page, go ahead please :)

      No problem! It's very likely that the MP5 will appear in Sandstorm, since it is such an iconic SMG in a military setting. But it's still not confirmed yet.

      I've created the G3 page (not sure 100% sure if it is an A3 model. We can always change it later) but you may want to expand/edit it since I'm not the most reliable when it comes to creating pages.

      This is basically my first major contribution, and I know this wiki hasn't really been all that active, but hopefully with the new game coming out, it will start to pick up some more momentum. I will hopefully stick around and help a bit more :^>

      Thanks!

    • That's very good to hear! You know, people like you are the ones who make a wiki great. I myself am pretty much out of the Wikia game, but if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help!

      Let's hope that the release of Sandstorm gives this wiki a boost, indeed.
