This is something that annoys me. When you apply a cosmetic to a weapon, the cosmetic is the same for all MK. It means that your weapon will look, sometimes, like an other weapon.
Example of the heavy sword:
As you can see, the cosmetic is from the heavy sword Mk IX, a skin I don’t like (personal opinion).
But, my surprise was, while I prepared to create this thread, that this is not all cosmetics.
Lasgun MG Ia is the common appearance for all cosmetics of infantry lasgun.
Except that MG IV Mortis operative is not following this path.
Same for MG XII.
This is something that makes me thinking that they become lazy. When they created the cosmetics for the imperial edition, they have made correctly the work and worked on every variations. Now, they don’t even try to do it.
Combat axe, tactical axes, braced auto, infantry auto, headhunters… all are is the same bag. Once you apply cosmetic, so you want to make them a little custom, they loose their appearance to become a common weapon.
While they can find excuse for cosmetics nightshade cammo and fire waste cammo (personal opinion, they should not), this also apply to paid weapon cosmetics. And here… let’s say it, there is something really wrong.
So Fatshark, will you give us a finished work instead of the half finished cosmetics?
For the future, I advice you to take care of this. This could seem a detail, but if you want to sell cosmetics, you have to pay attention to details.
I actually started to come back to standard cosmetics cause of this. I hate that my Heavy sword VI looks like an heavy sword IX…
[EDIT - here several examples]
Achlys is here the common skin
Here, Atrox MK II is the common
Columnus is the common
