Behind the scenes

  • The model for the Appalachian Thunder Pipe skin was by Jonathan Rush.[Non-canon 1]
  • The Gatling Gun is based on the real-world version from the 1860s, as designed by its namesake, Dr. Richard Gatling. The manufacturing plate in-game shows and shares the same form as the real-world versions plates. The only real difference is font, the in-game version uses Impact font which was created in 1965.[2]
