The assignment here was to concept a weapon from an already established universe. I personally loved the movie District 9 and the style of the alien weapons. After researching the look of the original weapons, I came up with a design of my own: a high powered, automatic sniper.

I wanted the design to feel customizable and give the owner a variety of ways to hold and use it. A retractable stand near the front of the gun can be used to balance it if needed, along with a front grip and a shoulder mount for more on-the-go situations. The sight’s feed can be transferred to a flippable camera on the side for easier viewing when it’s shoulder mounted.
