OK, but the lack of illustrations hinders the utility of this product.

The first Bag Full of Guns supplement, it does focus on rifles, but also includes a shotgun and grenade launcher. The weapon quality Modular is introduced, and reflects how many of the weapons can switch between upgrades (each switch is a separate stat line for the weapon - a very cool idea!). The upgrade "Airburst System" is introduced for grenades, as well as the ammo type, providing a more lethal alternative for those wanting to use grenade launchers more often.

Brief descriptions are provided for each weapon, adding more color and history to the weapon choices.

Overall, the weapons are well designed and will be of good use for players looking for assault rifle/shotgun/grenade options, as well as for GMs that want to introduce a few new toys.

The content is not completely indispensable, but at the price it is an excellent buy.

Spycraft This is my Rifle

Spycraft and other modern games that use modern weapons are only as good as the latest information they have published. There are plenty of new guns and new designs hitting the market in the past decade and it can be tough for a RPG to keep up. That is where the Bag Full of Guns series comes in for Spycraft. This is the first PDF in that series and based on what I see here I look forward to seeing more. The small PDF support of Spycraft is nice to see and something I just can not speak enough of.

Bag Full of Guns: This is my Rifle is a PDF for Spycraft by Crafty Games. It is written by Alex Flag and it is very nice to see a consistent voice in the books. The PDF is rather short and comes in two versions. It does not seem like a lot of companies are doing that any more and I am pleased to see Crafty Games doing it. They have the full color version that looks like the main Spycraft book and then they have a simple black and white version that is a lot easier to print out especially for people with personal inkjet printers. The PDF is not that big being only seven pages long but it is book marked.

This Spycraft books deals with a few of the newest rifles and weapons of the United States Military. There is some good information on these weapons and not being a gun expert I am just going to assume it is all accurate. It works well for the game at any rate. One of the weapons is a nice Carbine. There is a shot gun system and a grenade launcher. Each is of course fully stated up in the Spycraft fashion. There is also some weapon qualities presented in the book. I like that not all of them are positives like the Limited Upgrades Quality. There is an upgrade in the book of the Airburst Fire Control System. I imagine a few players will be having a lot of fun with that one.

The weapons in here can also be used by other game systems with a good conversion. There is no conversion advice in here but moving to other games like d20 Modern will be easy while something more like World of Darkness will be a bit tougher. The weapon descriptions though are useful for any game set in modern times

This is a good addition to the Spycraft game. The short PDFs might be the way to go but I hope to see some more with a little more length at some point. It would also be interesting to see some of these that are tied with the cutting edge of weapons like on Discovery Channel?s Future Tech TV show. But I am sure that I am like a lot of Spycraft fans and just really happy to see the game getting some good quality support.


LIKED: Nice up to date information

DISLIKED: a little on the small side

If you are running a classical Superspy game, your agents will probably not requisition these weapons.

However, I consider the contents worthwhile for two scenarios: One, if you are running a more military-themed game (and Spycraft's very much at home in crunchy, tactical combat), this will be pure gold for a near-future campaign. Two, if your spies are going up against high-tech masterminds, their minions will likely be packing some of these guns - a nice way to give them some serious firepower.

I would've added a more in-depth look at Land Warrior, but I guess that would be out of place in a pure weapons supplement. Recommended, overall.

An RPG Resource Review:

This product is designed as the first of a series that will look at a range of different weapons for use in the Spycraft 2.0 game. Naturally it is of particular use if you are the sort of player who likes to go into technical detail rather than just have a handgun or a rifle; but even for those of us who are not 'gun nuts' it provides interesting flavour and detail when planning what your character is going to carry.

The stated specific focus is contemporary US Army rifles, but in fact the featured weapons are rather more experimental and not on general issue. They are the FN SCAR (popular with US Special Forces), the Heckler & Koch XM29 OICW (which is rarely used due to expense and complexity although it's a good weapon) and the Heckler & Koch XM8 Carbine. Combat specialists might well be familiar with them, however, and so it's quite interesting to give them the opportunity of having a rather more unusual weapon.

There are also notes on grenade launchers (the sort you attach to your rifle) and shotguns (surely worthy of their own supplement), and a rather strange 'airburst' system for those wanting to have indirect fire without the bother of calling in an artillery strike.

If you are seeking an unusual and distinctive battlefield weapon, these are worth a look. However, none of these are suitable for the sort of covert action you'd associate with classic espionage adventure – not even as a sniper weapon if you have an assassination planned.

Overall, this is interesting but thin – these would have been better kept for a larger work on firearms in general, too specialist for many people to be really interested in them as a stand-alone work. If you are running or playing in a very military campaign they could be useful.
