A harpoon gun sounds pretty brilliant to me... it's different enough from the Huntsman yet can fire a very similar projectile. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

wanted to throw up a few name idea's while they're fresh

Hell's Heart: level 64 Wailin' gun - note the spelling it's named not after the intended target but the sound the giant harpoon makes while flying through the air.

the Scurvy Longsword: this oversized cutlass causes it's victims to continue bleeding out when struck until they can heal or die.

was looking for some famouse Aussie Pirates to name the hat after, but according to google they've only got the software kind downunder. so the best I've got atm is Geoffrey's Rush... yeah I know....


re the harpoon, so I'm thinking it should be able to skewer at least two players at a time as long as the first one isn't the heavy. Spy and Scout are skinny enough to fit three. and then the rope and spool are detachable so it could work something like L4D's Smoker, dragging players away from cap points etc.

the Scurvy Scallawag for the cutlass, and the Corsairs Cranial Cap for the hat?

It is a very good model, but I personally don't see how the theme relates to the sniper :O
Care to enlighten me?

just don't think of it as a primarily offensive weapon ;)

ups! layin out some more wippage, scope angle and compressed air tank aren't final. I found having the scope stright on top to be a little boring and the airtank was originally going to plug into the back of the main cylinder, but I kinda like it down under like this. second harpoon is an alternate spearhead idea



and yes now that I've uploaded it I can see the typo

Two N's in Mann.co bro! edit: Nevermind, I fail at reading, twice

This idea is very out there, but the model is shaping up nicely.

Gonna texture this right away or move onto modeling one of the other items?

Now we need a whale skin for the heavy (joke)

Personally I'd rather see the demoman having the pirate theme, but I guess it's okay witht he sniper too :p

I was gonna slap a couple dead whale icons on the side of the main cylinder ;)

haven't finished the model yet but I think I'll probably at least layout the base texture before I start the next stuff, that way I've got something to work with but I don't have to start over if the look is off.

sawed-off, or broken harpoon melee? It currently looks too long for the kukri animation.

there's definatley more of a direct literary reference going on with this version, the cutlass looks better for sure but I like the idea of the harpoon more I'll work on refining it and see if opinions change.

You could go for something more along the line of a billhook.

anything I can do to help the advancement of a single-minded killing machine

so it's seems I can't go five minutes without shuffling names around, The sword - or harpoon - is now going to be Hells Heart (for stabbing at thee), and the harpoon gun will be the White Wailer (again for the sound it makes)
