Let me know if anything is unclear about the rules or how to submit your work. Deadline is [B]July 31st 2017 8:00pm UTC[/B]!

the example qc and example submission links are 404. also, regarding "If your item requires replacement of existing files in the game in order to make it work," do sound and particle files, that make the weapon make more sense aesthetically, count as these? i'm guessing in that case we should also let you know which weapon the submission replaces in order to make good use of those replacement sound/particle files?

Sound and particles should be in the "mod" VPK file, that is correct. In that case add to the filename the item that it replaces, e.g. "newweapon_heinous_kritzkrieg.vpk". The example package has a text file that you can also use to write down any additional instructions or comments.
-begone thot-
Good Luck Y'all
Oh this is gonna be fun!
A few random unclaimed things: Browning Auto-5 shotgun for the Engineer, uses widow-maker animations so it doesn't need to be pumped, the [b]Humpback[/b]: [t]https://puu.sh/uu5f3.png[/t] Winchester 1895 styled scatter-gun for the Scout, the [b]Rough Rider[/b]: [t]https://puu.sh/uu5eX.png[/t] Flintlock styled flare-gun for the Pyro, the [b]Firebug's Flintlock[/b]: [t]https://puu.sh/w3zND.png[/t] MP5 styled SMG for the Sniper, the [b]Poacher's Piece[/b]: [t]https://puu.sh/w3zUA.png[/t] Ridiculously Large Knife for the Sniper, the [b]BMFK[/b]: [t]https://puu.sh/w3zUt.png[/t] And I don't know if anyone is too particularly interested in something that would require custom animations, but here's an assault cannon for Heavy, designed to be held similarly to his old concept art and the DOOM 2016 minigun: [t]https://puu.sh/ryaov.png[/t] And a lever action rifle for the Sniper: [t]https://puu.sh/pNcxR.jpg[/t]
I got a few lying around as well, hit me up if your interested in modeling, some of these are a little rough/early/old so I might wanna go over them again before they're ready.

[QUOTE=blaholtzen;52284455] [t]https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/39556064/concepts/Weapons/Lyudovik2.jpg[/t][/t] Lewis/"Lyudovik" machine gun,[/QUOTE] Everything is fair game, and competition is always welcome, but I just figured I'd mention that I also have a Lewis Gun styled mini-gun concept: [t]https://puu.sh/rVI1x.png[/t][t]https://puu.sh/rVI1G.png[/t] It's currently Claimed by Ertz, though time will tell if it'll make it for Arms Race or not. Just didn't want anyone to think there was some toe stepping in the future.
oh yeah I recall seeing that, I think we made them around the same time too, I might try somethign wierd wiht mine so they'll probably turn out pretty different, and no worries on my part ofc, there are only so many cool guns after all :v
Also, here is some claimed concepts, just to see what is ahead: Scottish Resistance styled grenade launcher for the Demoman, the [b]Bouncing Betty[/b]: [t]https://puu.sh/rHK84.png[/t] Claimed by Ertz Bottle melee for the Demoman, the [b]Loch Scotch[/b]: [t]https://puu.sh/w3yUA.png[/t][t]https://puu.sh/w3yZx.png[/t] Claimed by Ertz Liberator styled Grenade Launcher for the Demoman, the [b]Freedom Fighter[/b]: [t]https://puu.sh/uuJ0i.png[/t] Claimed by ZombiePlasticClock Some feedback before any of them are started would be much appreciated.
Few [I]mad[/I] massacre tools up for claim: [B]Captain's Betrayal[/B] [t]http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/concepts/pipantarctic/Captain's%20Revenge.png[/t] Spy Hook, the idea is that underneath the hilt is this little screen that would normally only show up to the user when backstabbing people. [B]Homemade Hybrid[/B] [t]http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/concepts/pipantarctic/Homemade%20Hybrid.png[/t] Pistol with elements of the [URL="https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Samopal_vz_25_TBiU_14.jpg"]Type 23/48[/URL], and a razor. [B]Sub-Syringe Gunner[/B] [t]http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/concepts/pipantarctic/Sub-Syringe%20Gunner.png[/t] Syringe Gun (which has now 100% more sense making barrel placement). [B]Small Scoper[/B] [t]http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/concepts/pipantarctic/Small%20Scoper.png[/t] Sniper Rifle put together from many sniper rifles to look awhole.
Never been much for weapon concepts but this should be fun I've recently finished this idea, an over under shotgun for Demoman inspired by traditional clay pigeon shooting and hunting in Britian. Not sure if it'd work but it could be a cool idea: [img]http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/concepts/tabby/Double%20Barrel%20Shotgun.jpg[/img] Here are all my much older weapon concepts: [B]Garrote[/B] for Spy [t]http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/concepts/tabby/Garrote.jpg[/t] [B]Leather Pliers[/B] for Engineer [t]http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/concepts/tabby/Leather%20Pliers.jpg[/t] [B]Police Battering Ram[/B] for either Heavy or Demoman [t]http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/concepts/tabby/Police%20Battering%20Ram.jpg[/t]
That shotgun is a neat idea and all, but its worth noting that the animation's hinge point for demo's launchers is located much further down: [t]https://puu.sh/w3Fjv.png[/t] So you basically would have to go out of the way to make an extension down to it, otherwise it'll just de-hinge and float all weird.
Im happy ARMS RACE IS BACK!
i was thinking of a spy primary/melee combo sorta like that old fireaxe/shotgun hybrid, akin to Snake's CQC stance in MGS [T]https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/76/60/e9/7660e9cf5524ed84b10b32e93366d1b6.jpg[/T] would take both slots and have custom first and third person animations if someone made a concept I'd be happy to model it, I guess I can see the watch animations being a problem though LMAO perhaps it could take the watch slot as well and have a wristwatch on the knife arm that functions like stock, with the face on the inside of his wrist?

[QUOTE=Slurg;52285405]is the minigun with the backpack supposed to look like the medigun?[/QUOTE] Yeah it will work like minigun I mean when you change weapon your backpack stay on back.
[IMG]https://puu.sh/w7R8v/748a2de990.png[/IMG] [B][I]Bradman's Honor[/I][/B] Well this here's the only item I have that I feel is finished enough More weapons to come!
Since you can now submit Payloads to the contest, here's a payload, disguised as a food cart... [t]https://i.imgur.com/DgzOJHj.png[/t]
So happy to see Arms Race is back, we can use some really good weapon models to show the rest of Workshop how it's done. May the best man win!

Well I guess I'll post some progress on a project me and my friend are working on for the contest. [IMG_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/L3n1rRE.png[/IMG_thumb] [IMG_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/vcumUva.png[/IMG_thumb] Still not finished but I'm glad to be in another arms race again!
[url]http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=935532163[/url] Here is my concept art for pyro secondary. Claimable.
So many great concepts already! [QUOTE=goatking732;52287921]Well I guess I'll post some progress on a project me and my friend are working on for the contest.

[QUOTE=VernoGuy;52286404]Since you can now submit Payloads to the contest, here's a payload, disguised as a food cart... [t]https://i.imgur.com/DgzOJHj.png[/t][/QUOTE] This is a great idea! I'd maybe do something like loose metal plates on both sides, hanging off a bit, so you can see inside and have a larger bomb in there. You know, put a little more emphasize on the bomb aspect. Also make the dynamite "hot dogs" more of a pile so they are better visible. Excuse my quick, sloppy edit but here's the basic idea: [t]http://manschitz.com/projects/tf2/feedback_hotdogcart.jpg[/t] Also the mix of red and blue colors might be an issue.
Okay, Seeing that there are so many amazing weapon concepts in this thread i figured that i'd contribute something as well, its not the best, and certainly not professionally drawn, but i feel like it gets the concept across well enough without being too simple or too complex [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/GomvdmY.png[/IMG] Motorcycle Flamethrower Concept So if anyone Has Some feedback, Or wants to Model this, Shoot me a message on Steam
I've never really tried my hand at doing concept art before, but this concept has been one that's been floating in my mind for over a year now. I wanted to make a sniper based off the HK SL8: [IMG]https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/images/41599.jpg[/IMG] And here's what I have. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/zNUXM4L.png[/IMG] Any feedback is greatly appreciated, and I would appreciate it it if anyone was willing to model this gun ofr the arms race as well.

I updated the concept for the SL8 a bit based on feedback: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Mm0ZzGs.png[/IMG] [url]http://imgur.com/a/3u0wF[/url] And here's a magless version for those who would prefer it [url]http://imgur.com/a/t0Qv8[/url]
