Introduction

As with the steady flow of weapon mods being created someone always seems to make something just a little bit better. Thumper has pulled it off with his excellent 7.62 MM Mod.

Content

Sporting over 25 7.62 MM rifle variants and some secondary weapon modifications this mod is packed with perfect weaponry. There are different rifles for the rifleman, support expert and sniper. The rifleman has the most amount of modifications including a suppressor for almost every different rifle. The sniper has excellent weaponry as well including the FN SPRa5-SD with a silenced MP5 for backup, which is my personal favourite. Hours can go by well testing out all of the weaponry that is included in this mod. 10/10

Sounds

Many new sounds come calling with this new mod. The silenced weapons sound extremely cool and are very precise. The sniper rifles make almost no noise and are very fun for shooting your friends from long distances without making a peep. I have heard many of these guns fired before and the sounds come very close to sounding like the real thing. 10/10

Camos

Alas there are no environment camos for the weapons which is a disappointment. The camo already on the guns looks pretty good. The textures look like they were worked on very hard by Thumper. 9/10

Conclusion

This is a very good weapons mod. It could have used some more work in the camo department but overall a very good mod and a must have on anyones mod list. I would like to congratulate Thumper and his colleagues on a job well done. 10/10

wouldn't that average out ot a 9/10? :blink:

I think he should get extra credit in the camo department for all the beautiful realistic skins that went into the m14 dmr's and others.. no basic gun metal grey here, real true blue replicas of the real world, including wooden stocks and such. this mod is easily the "standard upgrade" of the 7.62 NATO caliber.

I give it a straight up 10.

:o -me when I saw my mod got reviewed.

Thanks Iceman for the kind words and review. Believe me, if I knew how to alter weapons skins based on the environment tag, I would. None of the methods I tried before have worked, and I did not want to overwhelm with three different textures for each weapon, resulting in a mod 3 times the size. 7.62mm is not dead, there are more things coming down the road.

FYI: the total installed size (after extraction) is around 30 Mb, depending on file system (FAT32 or NTFS)

Somethings are worth striving for in the beginning, but in the end you either get bored of it or break it.

Sorry, I missed this last post until today while reading the Free Libya string.

As long as the 7.62mm Mod was installed and still there, the v1.5 add-on should have updated several files. When you run GR again with the 7.62mm Mod active, you should see several new weapons, like the XM25, the Troy SOPMOD, and a few others. You will not see a change in any of your screens, since I did not do splash screens or the like to save on D/L size.

Great mod! In fact it was this mod (and the extra firepower within) that gave me the extra edge I needed to complete the original GR campaign; I'm 34 dammit and I need all the edge I can get :lol:! Also, it's been serving wonderfully on my DS campaign -- the XM25 Hathcock is worth its weight in gold on those wide open maps. For night missions, the SR-47 SD and the M14 SOPMOD were my hands down favorites.

Needless to say, when I finally beat DS and start IT, these bad boys are coming to Cuba with me!

Thank you Thumper1518 and keep up the great work!

This is one of the cases when a good review has made me d/l the mod. If you are looking for a hi-quality wep mod, small in size, this mod is your choice.
I guess it must be tramendous fun in MP (haven't had the pleasure yet)..so far I'm having fun with it playing SP missions. Interesting new reticules, great new sounds :thumbsup: and excelent models :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thanks, guys for your kind words. I am working on a Version 2.0 that will add more weapons and tweak some of the older ones. The info is contained in this string. I hope my 2.0 lives up to the above review.

I have no doubt that it will surpass the quality in 1.0. Mmmm, I can see the Camo M1 RAS and un-sd M14 SOPMOD now...... :drool:

did you get the full mod or the upgrades? The full mod should be a zip file to extract to a folder that should read 762mm_mod and place in the mods folder. the upgrades are exe. files so they should already be set to find the mod if its already there, they only work if you have the mod
