Back when we released the original Gun Heaven last year, we were very pleased with the reception. People seemed to like the large, full-color art for each piece, and the in-character descriptions. But most of all, people liked having more guns (except Bull, who told us there were enough guns in the games, and then he asked us why we didn't focus more on bringing cyberdecks back into the game, but we're used to that from him). So in that light--Gun Heaven 2 has been unleashed and is on sale now (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG)! Here's the rundown:


FRIEND OF THE DESPERATE AND THE HUNTED

The only friend you’ll ever need. The last friend you’ll ever have. Your gun is the one thing in your life that should be dependable, that should always make a nice loud bang when you squeeze the trigger, and should always bring down whoever you think should fall. Of course, if your weapon is going to be that important to you, you’ll need one that suits you perfectly. And to find the right match, it’s best if you have a lot of choices.

Welcome back to Gun Heaven, where your next best friend is waiting for you. Dozens of options await, from the troll-friendly Krime Cannon to the foldable Terracotta Arms Mordred, from the stylish Shiawase Arms K2072 to the true tool of the desperate, the Barrens Special. And on top of that is a new breakthrough in ammo that gives you a better chance to hit your intended target.

Gun Heaven 2 contains fifty new guns for Shadowrun, each with a large, full-color illustration and complete game information and statistics. They’re waiting for you—take a look and find that special friend that fits perfectly in your hands.

Gun Heaven 2 is for use with Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition.

Personally, I think you should have met Bull and I halfway and given us a hold-out Cyberdeck gun.

Just make it a 're-skin' of the Ares Executive Protector that has a customizable Weapon Commlink as a Stock Mod. ;D

Hm
In fact, with Arsenal rules for weapon customization, I cannot see why those are not used when creating new catalog

Nice new piece of light ammo from SK, I like that :)

Everyone loves lasers and there is a lot of telling how it makes Armor obsolette
well, this I dont understand...since Lasers do 1/2 AP, while Gauss riffles do 1/2 -4 to AP...(of course there is that 8 points of availability difference)

A few battle rifles and Sniper rifles, a few fashion line things, well I can hardly see any progress or difference against classics (maybe that this come with pictures)
Saeder-Krupp definitely has the best weapon design in the catalog
Riser, who tells you that every piece on the list is crap (Who the frak is this guy, he is paid by Ares or Azies or something?)

Painfull lack of heavies (maybe 4 new? Like single shot assault cannon  ??? )

Overall for 12 bucks:
6/10 (because of nice pictures)

Quick question. Mostly for my record-keeping.

It says on the "login" page of the book that the current date/time is 23 Nov 2072, 0635 hrs. This seems to be a mistake since the first Gun Heaven's time was 6/15/2073. Should I just mark it as 5/15/2074 (ish) to keep in line with the other books?

Someone changed the time on their CommLink in order to fool some Demo Program they're using?  ;D
