    make a weapon mesh and animation?

    How do I make a 3d model of a weapon in 3ds max including a animation and import it to UT3?

    Do I even need to make a animation of the weapons I make in 3ds Max?

      Do I even have to make the animation for the weapon. Can I just make the mesh and import it?

        in most cases you only need a skeletalmesh for the 3rd person weapon, but you can add anims but they are very rarely seen in game

            Those tutorials didn't help me a lot really. it still misses a lot of information. like, how do you even make the animationset? and things like that.

              @Oblivion2500 ok the anims i did in the video's are for the First Person mesh which you then export via actorx
              yes PS3 can have FP anims but you might have a lot of work doing the arm anims

              @Beastenator, i'm quite sure i covered that as well

                Ok. Am I going to have to make my own arms in 3ds max to create my own first person animation?
                OR
                Can I just make something like, FPS animation but the arms are not showing...Like the flak cannon or rocket launcher? Just the shooting animation, no arms...???

                    Ok. That good. I don't have any weapons ideas that require showing your arms...thanks for the help. Do you have a tutorial on how to make your own explosions/bullets/missiles?

                      For that, you go to the UT3 editor and make a particle system
