Guns are ranged weapons that fire bullets or comparable items  as ammunition. In addition to ranged bonuses, bullet-firing guns also benefit from the Shroomite Mask and are compatible with the Rifle Scope.Building Demonstration: Sentry Gun
Possession of any bullet-firing gun or bullets fulfills the criteria for the Arms Dealer NPC to appear. Several other items are referred to as "guns" in-game e. Piranha GunSpace Gunor Water Gunbut none of these fire bullets or gain the above bonuses related to guns, nor will they cause the Arms Dealer to spawn. The best modifier for guns is Unrealwith the exception of guns without knockbackwhose best modifier is Demonic instead.

All rights reserved.A firearm is a gun a barreled ranged weapon designed to be readily carried and used by a single individual.
It inflicts damage on targets by launching one or more projectiles driven by rapidly expanding high-pressure gas produced by exothermic combustion deflagration of chemical propellant. The first primitive firearms originated in 10th-century China when bamboo tubes containing gunpowder and pellet projectiles were mounted on spears into the one-person-portable fire lance which was later used as a shock weapon to good effect in the Siege of De'an in In the 13th century the Chinese invented the metal-barrelled hand cannonwidely considered [ by whom?
Older firearms typically used black powder as a propellant, but modern firearms use smokeless powder or other propellants. Most modern firearms with the notable exception of smoothbore shotguns have rifled barrels to impart spin to the projectile for improved flight stability. Modern firearms can be described by their caliber i. Further classification may make reference to the type of barrel used rifled and to the barrel length 24 inchto the firing mechanism e.
Gatling gun. Shooters aim firearms at their targets with hand-eye coordinationusing either iron sights or optical sights. The term " small arms " generally refers to any kinetic-projectile firearm small and light enough to be carried and operated by a single infantryman. Such firearms include handguns such as revolverspistols and derringersand long guns such as rifles of which there are many subtypes such as anti-material riflessniper riflesdesignated marksman riflesbattle riflesassault rifles and carbinesshotgunssubmachine gunspersonal defense weaponssquad automatic weapons and light machine guns.
As of [update] the Small Arms Survey reported that there were over one billion small arms distributed globally, of which million about 85 percent were in civilian hands. In south africa act 60 of'handgun' means a pistol or revolver which can be held in and discharged with one hand. There are two common types of handguns: revolvers and semi-automatic pistols.
Revolvers have a number of firing chambers or "charge holes" in a revolving cylinder; each chamber in the cylinder is loaded with a single cartridge or charge. Semi-automatic pistols have a single fixed firing-chamber machined into the rear of the barrel, and a magazine so they can be used to fire more than one round. Each press of the trigger fires a cartridge, using the energy of the cartridge to activate a mechanism so that the next cartridge may be fired immediately.
This is opposed to " double-action " revolvers, which accomplish the same end using a mechanical action linked to the trigger pull. With the invention of the revolver inhandguns capable of holding multiple rounds became popular. Certain designs of auto-loading pistol appeared beginning in the s and had largely supplanted revolvers in military applications by the end of World War I.
By the end of the 20th century, most handguns carried regularly by military, police and civilians were semi-automatic, although revolvers were still widely used. Generally speaking, military and police forces use semi-automatic pistols due to their high magazine capacities and ability to rapidly reload by simply removing the empty magazine and inserting a loaded one. Revolvers are very common among handgun hunters because revolver cartridges are usually more powerful than similar caliber semi-automatic pistol cartridges which are designed for self-defense and the strength, simplicity and durability of the revolver design is well-suited to outdoor use.
Revolvers, especially in. Both designs are common among civilian gun owners, depending on the owner's intention self-defense, hunting, target shooting, competitions, collecting, etc. A long gun is generally any firearm that is larger than a handgun and is designed to be held and fired with both hands, while brace against either the hip or the shoulder for better stability. Early long arms, from the Renaissance up to the midth century, were generally smoothbore firearms that fired one or more ball shot, called muskets or arquebus depending on caliber and firing mechanism.
Most modern long guns are either rifles or shotguns. Both are the successors of the musket, diverging from their parent weapon in distinct ways. A rifle is so named for the spiral fluting rifling machined into the inner surface of its barrel, which imparts a self-stabilizing spin to the single bullets it fires.
Shotguns are also capable of firing single slugsor specialty often " less lethal " rounds such as bean bagstear gas or breaching rounds. Rifles have a very small impact area but a long range and high accuracy. Shotguns have a large impact area with considerably less range and accuracy. However, the larger impact area can compensate for reduced accuracy, since shot spreads during flight; consequently, in hunting, shotguns are generally used for flying game.Welcome to the Gun Wiki!

Remembering lives once lost. November 11, by GruntyThe means of projectile propulsion vary according to designs, but are traditionally effected by a high gas pressure contained within a shooting tube gun barrelproduced either through the rapid combustion of propellants as with firearmsor by mechanical compression as with air guns.
The high-pressure gas is introduced behind the projectile, accelerating it down the length of the tube, imparting sufficient launch velocity to sustain its further travel towards the target once the propelling gas ceases acting upon it at the end of the tube.
Alternatively, acceleration via electromagnetic field generation may be employed, in which case the shooting tube may be substituted by guide rails as in railguns or wrapped with magnetic coils as in coilguns. The first devices identified as guns appeared in China from around CE By the 12th century, the technology was spreading through the rest of Asia, and into Europe by the 13th century. The origin of the English word gun is considered to derive from the name given to a particular historical weapon.
Domina Gunilda was the name given to a remarkably large ballistaa mechanical bolt throwing weapon of enormous size, mounted at Windsor Castle during the 14th century. This name in turn may have derived from the Old Norse woman's proper name Gunnhildr which combines two Norse words referring to battle. The first device identified as a gun, a bamboo tube that used gunpowder to fire a spear, appeared in China around AD An early type of firearm or portable gun is the fire lancea black-powder—filled tube attached to the end of a spear and used as a flamethrower ; shrapnel was sometimes placed in the barrel so that it would fly out together with the flames.
In due course, the proportion of saltpeter in the propellant was increased to maximise its explosive power. Breech-loading guns called cetbang were used by the Majapahit Empire during the conquest of Nusantara in — The knowledge of making powder weapons in Java is thought to have originated from the Mongol invasion in One theory of how gunpowder came to Europe is that it made its way along the Silk Road through the Middle East; another is that it was brought to Europe during the Mongol invasion in the first half of the 13th century.
Around the late 14th century in Europe, smaller and portable hand-held cannons were developed, creating in effect the first smooth-bore personal firearm. In the late 15th century the Ottoman empire used firearms as part of its regular infantry.
The first successful rapid-fire firearm is the Gatling Guninvented by Richard Gatling and fielded by the Union forces during the American Civil War in the s. The world's first sub-machine gun a fully automatic firearm which fires pistol cartridges able to be maneuvered by a single soldier is the MP It was introduced into service in by the German Army during World War I as the primary weapon of the Stosstruppen assault groups specialized in trench combat.
It was the first firearm which bridges the gap between long range rifles, machine guns, and short range sub-machine guns. Since the midth century guns that fire beams of energy rather than solid projectiles have been developed, and also guns that can be fired by means other than the use of gunpowder. Most guns use compressed gas confined by the barrel to propel the bullet up to high speed, though devices operating in other ways are sometimes called guns.
In firearms the high-pressure gas is generated by combustion, usually of gunpowder. This principle is similar to that of internal combustion enginesexcept that the bullet leaves the barrel, while the piston transfers its motion to other parts and returns down the cylinder.
As in an internal combustion engine, the combustion propagates by deflagration rather than by detonationand the optimal gunpowderlike the optimal motor fuel, is resistant to detonation. This is because much of the energy generated in detonation is in the form of a shock wavewhich can propagate from the gas to the solid structure and heat or damage the structure, rather than staying as heat to propel the piston or bullet. The shock wave at such high temperature and pressure is much faster than that of any bullet, and would leave the gun as sound either through the barrel or the bullet itself rather than contributing to the bullet's velocity.

Barrel types include rifled —a series of spiraled grooves or angles within the barrel—when the projectile requires an induced spin to stabilize it, and smoothbore when the projectile is stabilized by other means or rifling is undesired or unnecessary.
Typically, interior barrel diameter and the associated projectile size is a means to identify gun variations. Bore diameter is reported in several ways.The Acid Shotgun is a Primary weapon introduced in the It can be obtained in the form of parts in the Super Lottery.
It is a Sci-Fi themed break action shotgun Primary. It shoots regular bullets that inflict the Poison effect when an enemy or monster is hit. At max Efficiency, it is a one shot to the head and two shots to the body if all the pellets hit.
It has a light green canister containing acid, which is connected to two tubes leading to the four barrels of the gun. Each of the four barrels is black with light green accents and light green muzzles. Underneath, it has a grey handguard with a black laser sight emitting a red laser. The weapon is held by both of the player's hands.
It shoots at a moderate fire rate for a shotgunbullets that have instant travel time and are laced with a strong Poison effect that deals high damage. The weapon holds 4 bullets per magazine, and while spawning, the player is given 4 extra magazines.
When reloading, the player flips out the barrel discarding the bullet shells inside and then inserts 4 more bullets then flips the barrel back up.
It has no delay mechanics. It deals very good damage with a slow fire rate, a low capacity, and a bad mobility.
This weapon is a 1 shot kill to the head and 2 shots to the body if all pellets hit. Its Poison damage is also incredibly strong. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. Contents [ show ]. Boom Boom!BB guns are air guns designed to shoot metallic ball projectiles called BB s not to be confused with ball bearingswhich are approximately the same size as BB size lead birdshot — 0. Modern BB guns usually have a barrel with a bore caliber of 4.
These guns usually use steel BBs, either zinc - or copper -plated to resist corrosionthat measure 4. Some manufacturers still make the larger-diameter traditional lead balls that weigh around 0. The term "BB gun" is often incorrectly used to describe a pellet gunwhich fires non-spherical projectiles. Although in many cases steel BBs can be fired from a pellet gun, the reverse situation is not true: pellets usually cannot be fired from a gun specifically designed for BBs.
Similarly, the term is also often used incorrectly to describe airsoft gunswhich shoot plastic balls that are larger but much less dense than metal BBs, and have significantly lower ballistic performance.
The term BB originated from the nomenclature of the size of lead shots used in a smoothbore shotgun. Size "BB" shots were normally 0. Inthe Markham Air Rifle Company in Plymouth, Michigan produced the first wooden-construct spring-piston air rifle design as a youth training gun, and used the BB-size birdshot as the chosen ammunition.
Two years later, the neighbouring Plymouth Air Rifle Company later renamed Daisy Manufacturing Company in introduced the first full-metal airgun that also fired BB shots — the Daisy BB Gun, which became very popular household name due to its successful marketing.
AroundDaisy changed their BB-size bore diameter to 0. They called these " round shots ", but the BB name was already well established, and most users continued calling their guns BB gunsand the projectiles as BB shots or just BBs. Subsequently, the term BB became generic, and is used loosely referring to any small spherical projectiles of various calibers and materials.
This includes bearing balls often utilized by anti-personnel mines. It has become ubiquitous to refer to any steel ball, such as a BB, as a " ball bearing ".
However, BBs should not be confused with a ball bearingwhich is a mechanical component using small internal rolling balls to reduce friction between moving parts of machines. BB guns can use any of the operating mechanisms used for air guns. However, due to the inherent limited accuracy and short effective range of the projectile, only the simpler and less expensive mechanisms are generally used for guns designed to fire only BBs.
Because the strength of the steel BB does not allow it to be swaged with the low propelling force used to accelerate it through the barrel, BBs are slightly smaller 4.
This limits accuracy because little spin is imparted on the BB. It also limits range, because some of the pressurized gas used to accelerate the BB leaks around it and reduces the overall efficiency. Since a BB will easily roll unhindered down the barrel, it is common to find guns that use a magnet in the loading mechanism to hold the BB at the rear of the barrel until it is fired.
Firearms by type
The traditional and still most common powerplant for BB guns is the spring-piston pump, usually patterned after a lever-action rifle or a pump-action shotgun.
The lever-action rifle was the first type of BB gun, and still dominates the inexpensive youth BB gun market. The Daisy Model 25modeled after a pump-action shotgun with a trombone pump-action mechanism, dominated the low-price, higher-performance market for over 50 years. Multiple-pump pneumatic guns are also common. Many pneumatic pellet guns provide the ability to use BBs as a cheaper alternative to lead shot.
Some of these guns have rifled barrels, but the slightly undersized BBs do not swage in the barrel, so the rifling does not impart a significant spin. These are the types of guns that will benefit most from using precision lead BB shot. The pneumatic BB gun can attain much higher velocities than the traditional spring piston types. The last common type of power for BB guns is compressed gasmost commonly the Powerlet cartridges.
These are primarily used in BB pistolsand are capable of rapid firing unlike spring-piston or pneumatic types. However some guns either to stay true to the original gun or to make the trigger pull easier do have a single-action trigger.
Either type of gun may also have blowback action, where CO 2 will push the slide back in addition to firing a BB. When firing, the hammer strikes an internal valve linked to the CO 2 source, which releases a measured amount of CO 2 gas to fire the BB, this also gives it realistic recoil and muzzle report features. Many CO 2 BB guns are patterned after popular firearms such as the Colt Mand can be used for training as well as recreation. Some gas-powered BB guns use a larger source of gas, and provide machine gun -like fire.An example of a weapon Ultimatum.
These items can be obtained through:. There are exactly 63 weapons that exist in both games.
Weapons in both games are generally used to kill players and thereafter win matches. Weapons in each category may act differently.
For example, Primary weapons could deal low damage per bullet but have a high fire rate, and Sniper or Heavy weapons could deal high damage, but with a low fire rate. Instead, they attack at close range. Weapons can retain ammunition if a player picks up ammunition packs often. If a bullet hits another player, that player will take damage, or could possibly die if that player was either low on health, or the weapon is just efficient enough to take out a player in one hit.
Whether the weapon is fully automatic in real life or not, you can continuously fire any weapon by simply holding down the fire button. However, this would decrease accuracy and greatly use up ammunition. Weapons have recoil and bullet travel time, so mind these attributes to increase accuracy. Other weapons are part weapons, where the player needs to get a certain amount of parts in order to obtain a weapon which needs parts.
You can also earn parts from:. You can upgrade weapons with Coins or Gems.
Coins upgrade weapons by one level while Gems upgrade weapons to the max level of the player. Every time the player levels up, weapons get increasingly more expensive to upgrade.
The price of Coin upgrades increase much more frequently because of its availability as opposed to Gems which only scale at certain levels. See the full list of PG3D attributes here.
