Gears of War pseudo fanart. This ain't complete, but I like where I'm at.
My concept for a character inspired by the Navy SEALs and SWCC operators (as well as the much unloved Commando Dom skin) an operator under the COG's Naval Special Operations Command hierarchy.
Being the secret squirrel types, the NAVSOC operators aren't fond of weapons like the chainsaw Lancer, which possesses low stopping power and accuracy relative to other weapons. Here, our guy is equipped with a heavily modified Hammerburst II, with improved optics, a collapsable folding stock, and a forearm mounted grenade launcher (and leaf sight). The magazines are less curved and contain a quad stack system, improving the weapon's capacity to 35 rounds, though it is still capable of accepting Locust manufactured magazines. The receiver is reworked to lower the weapon's bore axis (and improve recoil reduction), while the flash hider is threaded to accommodate a sound suppressor. In addition, the weapon's sear and disconnector have been retooled to allow the operator the choice between semi-automatic and fully automatic fire.
In addition, all lights on the weapon and body armor have been removed and replaced with infrared tabs, which can help NAVSOC operators identify each other during night ops, while using night vision equipment.
So if this were a character skin, you'd actually have quite a few customization options. Headgear, eyewear, many permutations. To list off what I have so far, there's a beanie, boonie hat, helmet + night vision goggles/mount, eight point cover, baseball cap, balaclava, and dive mask (will need a dive rig).
Edit: added two more. NBC protective mask/helmet and stealth/cloaking system compatible helmet.
