Unused Gun-icons Speculation (GTAV)
Hello, so about 30 minutes ago i was digging around some of the textures files in OpenIV, and i found some strange, unused textures in hud.ytd (GTA V / mods / update / update.rpf / x64 / patch / data / cdimages / scaleform_generic.rpf) Here's the first one: As you can see (Circled in red) There's what loooks like maybe an early version of the heavy sniper? But also has some elements of the combat MG. And to the right of that, There's what looks to be a heavy pulse rifle of something? (Once again, just speculation, i might be wrong.) Image 2: Not much in this image, just what looks like an early proximity mine (Maybe?) And what looks to be maybe an AR15? I don't have much fire-arm knowledge so i'm just stating what i think it looks like. Image 3: This one i the most interesting in my opinion, This is just mostly the MK2 weapons. BUT. Look at the red circle... looks like a freaking FLAME-THROWER to me?! And due to the way its formatted, it looks like it was added at the same time as the widowmaker and unholy hell bringer. What do you guys think?! Once again, I don't know if this is common knowledge, plus this is only speculation and my thoughts. But i really want everyone else's. So, what does everyone think of this?!
The flamethrower is used on the Cerberus flamethrower, the other weapons are cut from the game and there's quite a lot of leftovers from them, adding proper models and custom stats basically restores them, worth to mention none replaced anything, they got cut completely
SCAR - Heavy Rifle
HK21 - Assault MG
M4 - Assault Sniper
XM25 - Programmable A.R (rifle class but a grenade launcher)
Thermite Bomb - used in heists but not a weapon
HK21 model was from max payne 3 with edits and M4 was edited GTA 4 M4 Model, turned into a Sniper obviously
These weapons also have their own sounds
Oh, I didn't know any of these things! Thanks for letting me know! I had no idea this was common knowledge at all!
