Personally, one of my biggest issues with Call of Duty has always been the lack of imaginative weaponry.

Yeah, I know, it's supposed to be realistic so you can't have the arsenal you had in the Resistance series, for example. But even so, I've always wanted to see more guns like this :

Game Informer has introduced us to a variety of technology details concerning Sledgehammer's new CoD effort, and the new futuristic setting lets the developer stretch the boundaries of reality. Take the 3D Printer Rifle, for instance- it's not a gun that was created via 3D printing (which has already been done, believe it or not), but it prints its ammunition on the fly in the weapon's chamber.

That just sounds all sorts of over-powered, so we imagine there's a certain amount of time required to print that ammo. Then there's the plasma rifle, which reminds me of freakin' "Eraser," and some really slick vehicles like the hoverbike and the previously detailed exoskeleton suit.

Perhaps an environment in which the designers can get more creative is exactly what CoD needs…

Once nano technology ramps up we'll be able to 3d print just about anything. I've seen a 3d printed rifle stock. I'm sure the barrel and action could be done, but it would have to be some exclusive tech. If you want to get the rifling up to world class I think you're going to have to wait for better tech.

I'm assuming the on board ammo printer here is smaller and more efficient than a clip? Otherwise why not just carry more ammo?

So weird to see CoD go sci fi but that sounds cool, maybe if it gets really into sci fi I will actually play it.

I've always had this great idea for a gun that does something similar but with an additional controller scheme to make it more fun.

As much as I dislike what COD has done to the gaming world, I respect the amount of research and effort that is done in each game. The stories and whatever terrorist thing that goes on is about as accurate as what goes on in Tom Clancy games. I'll look forward to watching a playthrough on the youtubes.

hahahaha! 3D printer rifle… So instead of picking up ammo from the ground are you picking up reels of metal to feed it?

Maybe you project bullets with sheer will.
