View Full Version : Clone Trooper Long Rifle

06-25-2002, 07:28 AM
I was really wondering if someone is comming out with the clone troopers rifle, it has a scope on the bottom of it wich would make it best used for the sniper rifle in game, just change the weapons red laser to a blue laser, is anyone thinking of doing this because i have resource pictures. Thanks :clone: :charric:

I always thought it would be a really good replacment for the WOOKIE BOWCASTER.

I mean its got a slow fire rate and is powerful. plus it would look the best as a blue sprite

Um yea but the rifle was made with a scope for sniping so the only logical choice would be to go with the sniper rifle.

sniper rifle sounds better to put it on :clone:

But the scope is on the bottom of the gun. Personally I've never seen a gun where you look through a scope on the bottom........ Also none of the troopers in the movie use it as a sniper rifle, if you want a replacement for the sniper rifle you could do Zam Wessels gun.

Correct me if im wrong, but was not Zam sniped by Jango?

She was the "Snipee" not the "sniper".

brb going to get some more refrence pics

at this site http://www.artoosnews.com/episode2/
if you scroll down and click on clonetrooper(red) or 12" clonetrooper you get good pics of his rifle

Ok got some MORE pics, this one here shows that the rifles do shoot blue http://www.starwars.com/episode-ii/news/2002/02/img/artofstarwars_cover_bg.jpg

just another pic of the rifle http://www.thestormtroopers.com/images/other/clonetrooper3.jpg

i went on starwars.com ask section and asked if I could see some closeups of the clonetroopers weaponary, hopfully they will let me

The clonetroopers use a DC-15 Blaster. Which comes in two varieties, the rifle, and the blaster.

The Star Wars Attack of the Clones: The Visual Dictionary has awesome reference pics of both of them in very high detail. If my scanner hadn't been electrocuted by lightning I'd scan them and put them somewhere.

Anyways you can prolly pic up that book at any local bookstore. The cover has a big closeup of Jango's helmet on it.

EDIT: Go here and click Look inside this book. You can see the cover, and the first page has a pic of Zam Wessel's Projectle Rifle on it.
Cover (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0789485885/ref=ase_cgchannel-20/102-0139222-8330508)

Sadly Amazon.com wouldn't let you look at some more of the pages inside the book which include the Clonetroopers =\.

\Snipe\, v. t. 1. To shoot at (detached men of an enemy's force) at long range, esp. when not in action.

Zam was sniped with a poisonous dart.

Boy, Padme sure has a toned stomach.;)

U know what? I'll start modeling the weapon tomorrow.

06-26-2002, 09:05 AM
you can't snipe with a big blue blast... so i agree it should be a bowcaster replacement with a blue blast.

I think it would be better as the bowcaster too

Yeah cool i think it should be the bowcaster thats changed....just think how the bowcaster looks and fires.. youll see its almost perfectly sound to that of the clonetrooper rifle.

plus sounds could be implemented and the blue spirit could be easily done.

If ya want the Zam Wessel rifle as the sniper rifle replacment then you could also edit the scope to look like the one from EP2 that she used..

(oh yeah zam sniped obi wan off the droid-and she was poision darted by jango--but from quite a long distance so i think it was a semi-snipe lol)

If someone does make a clone rifle it should replace the reapeter gun:)

06-26-2002, 02:20 PM
Repeater gun...riiiiight. :D

Seeing as the Clonetrooper rifle looks like it is based on the MG42 machine gun that the Germans used in WW2, there should be loads of reference pics out there.

The Clonetrooper's rifle is infact an earlier version of the Light Repeating Blaster (BlasTech ST-II), this rifle, the repeating rifle, was used by Stormtroopers in ANH. They are the equivilant of M60s (Which is what makes the Clonetrooper army amazing - An army of perfect troopers, entirely armed with M60s)

The ST-II was made by Lucas Props by using an odd teflon grip on a german WWII MG. So, if you need reference pics, try buying some old Star Wars RPG reference books, technoligy and weapons and stuff, and look for the Light Repeater (Or look for it online).

NOTE: The Repeating Blaster in JO is /NOT/ an ST-II.. The Repeater in JO (and JK1, and DF) are simply made up by Raven/LucasArts.

k i have the AotC Visual Dictonary here
The DC-15 rifle has the scope on the bottom is used as a hand hold in assults but for sniping it flips up and the trooper holds the barrel
so the sniper rifle is the odvious weapon for it 2 replace if u redid the weapons.dat so it fired like the a blue laser at a middum rate of fire for standard attack and then used the disruptor rifle scope for secondary fire
The DC-15 blaster looks very like the blasters used on ANH
i will scan u the pics and email them 2 u if u want (PM me)

Steg THANK YOU, it was designed to be detached and put on top of the gun. Okay guys look at the visual dictionary for AoTC and you will see the clone trooper lookes the best with the rifle in an aiming position wich is what position the sniper rifle is in, the bowcaster has it at the side like rambo wich isn't as affective. Whoever wants to start this project with me email me at darthmaul774@hotmail.com and will get to you in about 4 days. One more thing the blast from the bowcaster doesn't look like the dc-11 blaster rifle, and it would be stupid shooting 5 shots at once, and the secondary fire mode reflecting off walls, the sniper rifle is much more accurate.
