Gear Review: M1 Garand

Gear Review: M1 Garand

Hey Guys, Ulquiorra98 here, and today we'll be taking a look at the M1 Garand, ROBLOX's first-ever 13+ Gear item.

Abilities/Effects: The M1 Garand is a fairly decent gun when it comes to close-range combat, when one is jumping around the opponent, hoping to land a few shots on him. If lucky, you'll be able to finish him off after 3 well placed bullets. There is, however, another cool aspect to this gun. Supposing your enemy doesn't know where you are, and you have enough time to aim for a headshot, and then fire, you'll be happy to know he'll be knocked out in one shot. Headshots count as a 1-hit-KO for this weapon. You get 8 bullets per round, and after you've used them all up, it'll take around 8 seconds for another batch of ammo. So, I'd give this gun an 8/10 in this category.

Appearance: There are many things about this gun that appeal to my taste. First off, I'd like to say that the overall design of the gear is very realistic, from the polished wood finish to the small, metal trigger. One thing that ROBLOX has added to this gear is a recoil mechanism, which allows for a much more realistic experience. To keep track of your bullets, a green-and-black counter GUI pops up on the right side of the screen, which I find quite helpful. Yet another neat thing about this item would be the little scope-like-thing they've replace the cursor with, for improved accuracy. When equipping this gear, the neck of your ROBLOXian tilts down to meet the shoulder, and the hands move to hold the rifle in the way that one would hold a gun in real life. When firing, little golden shells pop out of the rifle, which, again, adds to this more life-like experience. There's no doubt that this gear deserves a 10/10 in this section!

Pricing: This gun hit the catalog at a price of R$1,000, which I'd say is a decent price for an item of it's 'caliber.' (See what I did there?) One of the reasons this item isn't selling as well as I expected it too, however, is because it is exclusive to members that are 13 or more years of age. It was the first gear to be released in such a manner, though I can't see what's so different about this gear that members that are 12 and under shouldn't be allowed to buy it. In this category, I'd give it a 9/10.

Overall: 9/10
