I like most of the new weapon visuals to like elite weapons and romulan weapons, I hope the old mk xi and xii weapons get some kind of makeover like how console graphics just did

I know this is kind of an old thread, but I agree I would rather have a canon looking phaser rifle and type 2 phaser then all that extra stuff all over the weapons. I understand they are supposed to look more advanced etc but it just doesn't do it for me.

I agree as well.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

These cell phone jammers are available at a very reasonable price. You can buy this cellular phone jammer very easily. As this service takes nominal charges on the network, so you would need to spend a little amount to get complete peace of mind when you are not willing to get disturbed.

I think part of the issue is due to how bad the scaling in this game is. Some of the Weapons just have too many unnecessary parts added on, but a lot of the time, they're just too big and bulky. The Jem'Hadar rifle is a great example, because it's a relatively small rifle, yet in game, its way too oversized. The Maco sniper rifle as well (while having no canon version) is just too large of a weapon to be carrying around, especially for a sniper.

I do think that the Fleet versions of some (definitely not all though) weapons are a good size and design, but it would be nice to see the weapons in hand before buying them. A preview option would be nice, but it would just be better to let us choose visuals to get the models we want, and fit our characters better.

preview would be great! I bought a set of 4 fleet weapons because i wanted the looks, and i got relatively what i wanted ( the pistol grip style hand phaser aka Widebeam)
but it was a bit of a gamble getting them

Klingon ones still have a bug though, the dual pistols are actually dual snipers

An excellent suggestion; good sir. Might I also suggest in addition (as I believe has been mentioned elsewhere in the thread) that the weapons, like armor, have an 'enable visuals' toggle which would allow folks who don't like the looks of the holographic additions to turn them off.
