New Rainbow Vegas 2 weapons list & video of new weapons in action.

There are eleven new weapons being added to Vegas 2.

P99 (Pistol)
Type 05 JS (SMG)
FNC (Assault)
L85A2 (Assault)
AKS-74U (Assault)
M468 (Assault)
500 TACTICAL (Shotgun)
L96 Arctic Warfare (Sniper)
SR-25 SD (Sniper)

The SR-25 SD is a sniper you can put a silencer on. Silencers will increase accuracy but reduce the amount of damage they make when compared to the same weapon without the silencer. And the love-it-or-hate-it noob cannon, aka the XM-26 LSS, has a reduced rate of fire now… will be interesting to see if it will still end up with a perma-ban by most hosts when they start up their new games. And in terrorist hunt you can now have to primary weapons, both for single player and multiplayer hunting.

New Rainbow Vegas 2 gameplay videos & new maps

Okay, all you Rainbow fanboys and fangirls (especially the H20s that constantly ask me!) here are some new videos. They show some conquest battles (in the MLG map that is available through GameStop preorder). I promise I will do another post on what I think of the new game based on the info that has come out so far, but I figured I’d get the videos out to you first for your viewing pleasure.

First, here is an old Raven Shield map Oil Refinery (was also on the original XBox Rainbow Six 3). I compared it to my old version of the map, and it still looks as confusing as I remembered it… and a better server room has been added this time around. The differences seem to be some catwalk type areas that have been added. And the textures look so much better.
