Text on the Gnasher says "Get better soon!".
Something I cooked up in GIMP after pondering on what a bang-up, overused, rusty Lancer would look like. A bit akin to this, hopefully .
Rusted chainsaw spikes, worn-out duct tape holding the bayonet to the gun. Broken lights, defunct iron sight. Inferior by a land-slide to a brand new Lancer, but hey; At least it still works, right?
I also remember Flak, or Cher, dunno which said something about Fans suggesting weapon/character skin ideas to Epic. So, here's my shot. This matches Gears 3's "end of it all" setup. Figure, ammo is scarce, a brand-new gun is probably a lot more of a rare finding so people/Locust are resorting to using "broken" weapons that have been fixed up. I'd die for a skin for MP use where the gun appears heavily corroded and rusty, with tape the only thing holding it together . "Salvaged" as my idea would speak. Epic needs more weapon skins based on cosmetic atmosphere rather then animation in my opinion.
One can hope!
Possible names for skins, "Salvaged", "Rusty", "Erosion", "Rustlung".
