1) it was on the previews but why did Valve removed it?
2) Is there any way to make a mod to add it on the game?
1. I think it was something to do with it not serveing any specific purupose. They already had the all purpose machine gun/grenade launcher (smg1) and the heavy machine gun (AR2). The OICW was superfluous.
2. Yes, if someone models one. But i think the .smc and .qc file for it are included in the SDK sample content. Problem is when i tried to comvert it to a MDL it did not work.
the overwatch pulse rifle replaced the OICW. and i think it was more appropriate, cos the OICW is an earth/human based weapon. the pulse rifle is more consistent to combine technology
I didn't make it!
overwatch pulse rifle replaced the OICW
That is not true. The pulse rifle was orignally an automatic flare launcher. It was used to set your enemies on fire. I think the OICW was removed because it was rath redundant. It was just an automatic rifle with a green night video scope on it. It was hardly any differnt than the SMG in the game.
