Golden Guns?

In my opinion I don't like the golden guns in the single player story. They just look out of place in the setting of the Campaign. It takes away the gritty setting and I'm glad I'm able to turn them off.

I gotta agree with you here, even though I've yet to play this game. Golden guns are something that should be earned/unlocked in multiplayer only.

hang on fellas

The golden guns have 10% more damage and hold a few more bullets per clip than the vanilla version. I think they are there to aid us in the harder difficulties later..

Also, if you dig around in the menus you will find the switch to turn the golden effect on/off.

oops, you already knew that...

Are you sure about the bonus's for the gold guns? Where can I find confirmation on this? Thanks

Yep. On the harder difficulties, the extra ammo helps. The golden gun for the first handgun has a clip off 21. Extra damage on the other hand... I can't tell to be honest.

I really don't think a couple extra bullets is worth it. The damage maybe but I still can't find anywhere that says they are 10% stronger.

I would like to know, if you disable the boni of the golden guns as well, when you disable them in the option. Or if it disables just the golden color effect...

I actually like them in the game. Yeah, they do kind of look out of place, but I still think they're pretty cool to have. They also help a lot in the harder difficulties of the game.

Then perhaps you should avoid them...

Just sayin, saounds like you already made up your mind.

But I will say, even if you get an extra 50% to your MAGAZINE, that's still less reloads. Not significant, but it may be good in a pinch.

You don't have Golden Guns from the get-go. You have to unlock them by playing the Story.

In the Story, there will be Golden Guns that are disassembled into 2 or 3 smaller pieces around each level. For example, you have to find all 3 golden parts to the M1911 Pistol in one level in order to unlock the Golden M1911.

Once you have all the parts, that gun will always be gold when you play the Story. As for Multiplayer, you can choose whether or not you want to use that skin for it.

If you need help locating the Golden Gun parts, use this link, my man.

I liked collecting them especially since they can help me in the other difficulties. I understand what you mean though, it is kind of weird that they are gold though, but I didn't think it was that big of a deal.
