Default This page is crap

http://www.imfdb.org/index.php/Perfect_Dark
Most of the guns on there are fictional and I keep on removing them (Example "Dragon & Superdragon) are claimed to be the G36 which they have no resemblance to and are fabrications.
There is also a Magazine fed grenade launcher that is listed as the AG-36.
He also claims that the "Falcon 2" is a AMT Hardballer just because the Scope looks like the laserlock sight from terminator even though it resembles the Colt Double Eagle much more.
There are a ton out there.

I keep on trying to fix the page but some guy "Dongs" keeps on undoing my revisions everytime I try to fix it.

Not to mention the page sounds like it was written by a 12 year old with sentences like
Quote:
It's called MagSec 4 in the game. It's a modified Beretta M93R. It shoots a 3 round burst for an alternate fire mode.
Also literally half the "guns" on there are Alien phaser guns or something

Not anymore. I deleated all of the purly fictional content and I do belive that the 007: Goldeneye page does say that such and such a gun is also found in Perfect Dark so I deleated those enties as well.
I don't want to vandalize the page but you are right it was crap.

Oh thank god. I just noticed it had been really screwed up, so glad that's taken care of.

I mean, come on. Hardballer? HONESTLY?

Yeah, I concur. Let's delete this rubbish.

Just to bring this up since I finally registered an account, that's actually more or less true as per the image I uploaded to compare the two:



Though the Dragon has a flat-top mount rail rather than the higher one there. Granted, it's horribly mutiliated, but Sarge's G36-based gun in the Doom movie actually ends up looking fairly similar to it. For the rest, I apologise; the Falcon 2 is closer to a Double Eagle in terms of the gun itself, I just thought that since a major feature of it was based on a specific movie prop, that should be mentioned instead.

Also re ManiacallyChallenged on the Resistance M5A2, it's actually an M14 EBR with a vertical magazine, the stock of an L96A1 in wood and an M203 fitted. There's a nice thread of someone trying to reconstruct it here.

Yeah, saw that...not convinced. Resistance stays down.

Oh, I wasn't arguing it should be bought back, though I might throw together a page for Resistance 1 [where the Chimeran guns seem a little more based in reality] at some point. Only it'd have images and be any good.

Also, just to clear up: Resistance isn't set before WW2, it's set in an alternate 1950s where America was isolationist during WW1, there was never a Russian revolution or stock market collapse and the Nazis failed to win any support in Germany due to the stable economy.

That is a really crappy comparison, It has not resemblance to the G36 whatsoever.
