As promised, Three Speech was able to get your questions over to the Insomniac team. Here's what they had to say:
1. I would like to know if Insomniac takes inspiration for some of its weapons (especially in Resistance) from real world weapons?
Nathan Fouts, Weapons Programmer: Absolutely. We like taking modern-day weapons as inspiration and building on those. We also like taking physics phenomenon and natural occurrences and trying to blend them with weapons. For instance, the air-fuel grenade was based on real weapons but also on slower fluid dynamics, while the Hedgehog grenade was based on "Bouncing Betty" mines and Cholla cactus. The look of a homing tag locked on the environment using the Bullseye was inspired by the classic Bohr model of the atom (with bullets homing on the tag mimicking swirling electrons).
