The apocalypse arrived faster than any of us imagined. I still remember those moments of fear and uncertainty. There were no governments left to protect those who survived on Earth. Humanity had no choice but to start assembling war machines and weapons to protect themselves. People used whatever was left over from old crypto-mining farms and gun shops to create next-generation, electronically-controlled guns. This is how the Gun Factory in the Wasteland was born.
All weapons in War Riders resemble modern-day firearms combined with various electronic components for remote control and intelligent shooting. There are four main categories of weapons that will be produced by the Gun Factory:
- Machine Guns
- Rocket Launchers/Anti-tank Weapons
However, only Machine Guns and Rocket Launchers will be available during the alpha phase. Please stay tuned for updates on the other two categories.
All weapons are standard, tradable ERC-721 tokens that will be released via a Gun Factory smart contract that will produce the deadly weapons. The pre-sale contract is based on loot boxes that you can open using BZN or ETH. We will release more information about gun economics and cost shortly before the sale, which is expected to start in approximately two weeks. The guns are distinguished by main weapons and secondary weapons.
Main weapons are installed on the roof of the vehicle and can rotate 360 degrees. They come with a special gun shield that protects the weapon and gives it a unique appearance. The gun shield may come with a certain skin, which does not provide any special ability and is purely cosmetic. The skin makes the gun rare and desirable. There will be a limited amount of skins released, and some skins will be extremely rare. When a player opens a loot box, the gun will have a random skin or no skin at all.
Secondary weapons are smaller and less powerful versions of main weapons. These weapons are installed on the front of the vehicle, one on each side, and have limited rotation angle (i.e they can only shoot forward). Secondary weapons have no gun shield and are sold as a pair in one NFT token.
The secondary and main guns will also have different types of barrels. There are only four types of barrels that will be released in the alpha phase:
- Carbon (premium)
- Gold (premium)
- Platinum (premium)
Premium barrels are much more rare than regular barrels. When opening a loot crate, the gun barrel will be also be chosen randomly, so the rarity will depend on luck.
The M134C Minigun is a crypto-version of the classic six-barrel rotary machine gun with a high, sustained rate of fire. It features a Gatling-style rotating barrel with electric motor and an old cryptocurrency miner that controls the rotation and automatic firing.
The M2c Browning is a computer-controlled version of an automatic, recoil operated, air-cooled machine gun with disintegrating metallic link-belt that is used to feed the ammunition into the weapon. Traditional spade grips and trigger were replaced with a digital trigger that is controlled by a small, single-board computer.
The M5 MAAWS is the next generation recoilless anti-tank weapon with extended barrels for maximum effective range. Modified with an autoloader, this gun features continuous firing with no need for manual reloading. Three portable computer units with power supplies provide the weapon with necessary power and logic for fully automated firing.
