The creator of the Simple Guns Mod knows just how many gun mods there are in the Minecraft modding community. He introduces his mod by stating “Another gun mod? Don’t we already have like 50 of those?”
While this may be true, some gun mods are better than others. The Simple Guns Mod is popular because it includes a wide range of old-fashioned and modern guns. There are machine guns, pirate muskets, and everything in between.
It’s important to note that Simple Guns 1.6 doesn’t make the player overpowered. Guns are expensive to craft and maintain, which means players will have to think carefully about each and every round they fire.
Some guns are extremely powerful, while others are weak and inaccurate. Here is a list of some of the most popular weapons the Simple Guns Mod adds into the Minecraft world:
Musket: Just like in real life, the musket in Simple Guns is extremely slow. However, it does feature a reasonable range and high damage and it is relatively easy to maintain. The creator of the Simple Guns Mod suggests that it’s a much better alternative to the bow and arrow.
Revolver gunblade: According to the creator of Simple Guns, the revolver gunblade is designed to be a World War I-era weapon. It looks like a typical revolver, but it has the added bonus of featuring an iron sword on the front. Even better – the weapon doesn’t degrade when used over time.
Blunderbuss: This basic shotgun-type weapon is hardly more than a pistol with a wide barrel. You might recognize it from pirate movies, and it’s able to fire off one round every four seconds.
Bombs: There are 12 different types of bombs included in the Simple Guns Mod. Players can use cloth, clay, iron, or nether to create differently powered bombs. Some bombs are sticky, and will attach themselves to whatever surface they’re thrown at. Others are instant, and will explode upon contact with a solid block. And regular bombs will bounce when they hit the ground before exploding 2.5 seconds later.
Along with adding new weaponry into the game, the Simple Guns Mod adds a range of new recipes and control schemes. Most guns are used by pressing right-click, although some guns – like the shotgun – feature an additional layer of controls. Players can press B, N, and M to switch between different types of ammo, for example.
There are also rifle scopes, enchantable guns, gun racks, and other features included in the Simple Guns Mod. If you’re ready to start blasting apart your enemies with everything from pirate pistols to World War II era machine guns, then you’ll like Simple Guns 1.6
