What would a chainsaw be doing there anyway?

Yeah I wondered that myself. What's even stranger is that there are TWO different chainsaws on the same boat...

Use your imagination...

I doubt thats a chainsaw. Yes, I've looked, and it looks like light streaming across an aliased handrail. But see a chainsaw if you must. What would a chainsaw be doing there anyway?

weapons appeared in ramdom places all the time in earlier games

Prove it.

The proof is in watching 5 secs of HD footage from the trailer at very slow speed... the "reflection" you mention rotates with the chainsaw...

If you can't see it after doing this then we'll just agree to disagree.

Have you looked at the HD footage in slow mo or are you being obstinate for the sake of it? I didn't think it was a chainsaw either until I zoomed in and slowed the speed down...

... but to be honest I don't think its worth having an argument over is it?

I have seen said zoomed HD footage, and I'm not convinced.

And no, it's not.

Yes! You can even see it in the small size they have on the official website, although it's easier if you download a larger version here

You probably need to zoom in on an HD version to actually see what this weapon is. But there is no doubt about it, it's rotating just like the weapons do.

Rewatch that first part...at the end you will see the full figure of a person walking through the hole in the side of the hull.

I'm still not convinced.

EDIT:

There's nothing awesomer and also scarier then seeing a gun on a table, so I love it when they put that kinda realism in games. cool.gif Besides if R* take out airplanes because of realism I don't see why they would keep the glowing circles.

If they weren't floating in a circle and just laying on the ground, they would be hard as hell to find. And i dont want to have to kill all these people just to get some weapons. The circling weapons havent really ever bothered me that much, maybe they can just take away the glowing colors

agree 100%.... but if they are to make em withoutt the floating thing, they have at least make the weapons some sort of visible, something you couldnt miss

Sorry to raise the dead but,
Download the opera browser, go to the official site, zoom in (atleast) 300% and watch that area.

The first shot isn't a gun/chainsaw rotating. Its a guys head as he walks by. You see the head bob and it gets smaller the further it goes. You can also see the body pass through the porthole type hole in the side.

The second one is just light flickering. There is no glow or rotation of anything.

How about if they didnt appear in back alleys and ontop of buildings and you could only get them from ammunation and dead bodys then they wouldnt be so hard to find

ammunation is a certian no return to gta IV mercie_blink.gif

It should be EXACTLY like hitman where if you shoot someone they drop the gun realistically and you press a button when you stand beside the gun and Niko picks it up and puts it in his pocket or jacket.

Small guns he pulls out of his pocket and the big arse guns, pulls out of his shirt or something.

I like the system in Stranglehold when the weapons were on the ground of tabel or whatever and they had a slight glow to them. I noticed them and it wasn't unrealistic.

If the guns are on the ground with no glow in GTA IV, then they'd be unnoticeable. The weapon pickups in previous GTAs had them floating in a colored circle so you can notice them.

I know that Rockstar announced the ability to buy guns off gun runners in the game and I did see the rotating chainsaw, but I'd like to mention the method used in The Godfather. They would have Black Market Merchants langering in alleyways in the city and each one had a particular weapon for sale.

With that said, I'd like to predict that maybe as the game progresses in GTA IV that you'll learn of gun storage containers or underground gun shops (pawn shops). IMO that'll be the best way to do it.

I'd prefer if they were on the ground, but would give off a slight glow, to let the player know that there is a weapon there. It worked well in The Getaway games.
