SOFIA, BULGARIA—December 4, 2012—Masthead Studios, a leading independent game developer, today released new concept art depicting weapon combinations featured in their upcoming shooter GUNS and ROBOTS.

In GUNS and ROBOTS, thousands of potential weapons will allow players to fine-tune their arsenal. Players will be able to pinpoint enemies with multiple weapons simultaneously. Weapon customization will be provided with sets divided according to durability, damage, energy consumption and ammo supply. The set highlights some extraordinary weapon combinations that players will be able to pick!

The Raygun is a medium-range energy weapon that combines a decent damage output with a high degree of precision. It does not need ammo, but has high energy consumption. If players want to take the Raygun out for a test, they should pick high-capacity batteries. This weapon cuts through the hard metal of the opponent and is one of the most devastating medium-range weapons in the game.

The Machine Gun is the quintessential assault weapon. Its high ammo count and superior rate of fire allow even the most inexperienced players to spray-and-pray with some success. With such arsenal at their disposal players will be able to incapacitate enemies and dominate the battle arenas. This fully automatic weapon is designed to fire bullets in quick succession.

The Railgun Automatic is high-powered, electromagnetic rifle whose projectiles can penetrate walls. The Staccato mechanism provides for fully automatic firing mode, making it much easier to finish off a retreating enemy before he’s out of range.
