Carnivores Triassic is a popular, yet unofficial, title in the Carnivores hunting simulator video game franchise. Due to the lackluster response of the series' fourth title, Carnivores Cityscape, many fans of the series treat Triassic as a true sequel to the original three games. Based on the engine used for Carnivores Ice Age, Triassic offers improved AI for prey (dinosaurs and archosaurs in this title), various new anaimals, new maps, and a variety of new weapons. Several of the new weapons are based on the weapons from the previous games, but several completely new weapons appear as well.
The following weapons appear in the video game Carnivores Triassic:
Heckler & Koch USP
Replacing the previous games' pistol is a Heckler & Koch USP. The model seems to be the same model used for the pistol in the previous games (which weakly resembled a Browning BDA), but it has been re-textured in order to make it look like a USP. Though not that powerful, the gun carries a hefty 14-round magazine that can be pumped into any prehistoric beast that's unlucky enough to get caught in the player's line of sight.
Dan Wesson PPC .357
A black Dan Wesson PPC .357 revolver with wooden grips appears as an all new weapon, replacing the series' signature X-Bow weapon. It's more powerful than the USP, but power comes at the cost of only six rounds to fire before having to reload. The reload animation, however, is rather bizarre: After running dry, the Hunter will jerk the revolver backwards, as if trying to eject the spent casings. The thing is, the cylinder doesn't swing out. The Hunter will then lift an empty hand, slap the gun on the back, and call it a day.
Z-M LR 300
A Z-M LR 300 rifle appears as a new weapon, acting as the series' first assault rifle. It has the fastest rate of fire of any gun in the game, and is fairly powerful. However, the weapon is also very loud, and can scare prey away. On the select screen, the weapon is referred to as both a "LR300" and an "M4 Carbine Assault Rifle." The select screen image also happens to show an M4 styled weapon. The weapon in the select screen does not appear in the most recent version of the game, and appears to be a leftover from a cut or removed weapon.
Some kind of M4 carbine weapon appears on the weapon select screen, representing the aforementioned LR 300 rifle. Despite being labeled as an LR 300 in the weapon list, the description refers to the pictured M4, which does not actually appear ingame. Other than the general shape, details are difficult to acquire due to how small the image is, though it clearly boasts some kind of optics.
A new weapon appears in the game, labeled as an FN FAL, which comes equipped with "built in crosshairs." The select screen image, however, is clearly based off of the rifle seen in the previous games, which best resembles a KS-23 shotgun. The ingame model for the FN FAL also seems to be based on the existing KS-23 model, but since we only ever see the weapon from the top, it's hard to tell. Note, though, that the scope is placed on the handguard.
The Remington 870 MCS Entry shotgun from the previous two games appears again in the game's select screen, representing a Remington SP-10 hunting shotgun. Ingame, it's basically an 870 without the rear sights that appeared on the shotguns that appeared before (making it further resemble an 870). The "SP-10" has a leopard camo. There's also a gold 870 on the select screen, called the Golden Lever-Action Rifle (Despite the shotgun clearly having a pump).
The rifle from the first game, which actually resembled a KS-23 shotgun with an incorrect box magazine, reappears in Carnivores Triassic in several different styles. Firstly, the KS-23 is used as a select screen image for the aforementioned FN FAL, but with sights removed and replaced with a crude looking scope. The same scoped KS-23 image from the previous games also appears, but this time the weapon is identified as an M40A3 Sniper Rifle, which it only shares a vague similarity with. Finally, a retextured KS-23 is used to represent the Franchi SPAS-15 (See the next entry).
A SPAS-15 appears in the game as a new weapon - sort of. It's actually the previously seen KS-23 shotgun model, but completely retextured in order to resemble a SPAS-15. One can make out all of the SPAS-15's details, such as the pump, the magazine, and the receiver. The only things that are amiss are the elongated barrel and the lack of a carrying handle. As the pump is only textured onto the gun, the weapon, perhaps rather obviously, fires in its semi-automatic mode.
Sawed-Off Double-Barreled Shotgun
Some kind of generic Sawed Off Double Barreled Shotgun appears in the hands of poachers, enemies who will come to collect you as a trophy if your dinosaur trophy room starts to get really full. These enemies were actually supposed to appear in Carnivores Ice Age, but were cut for unknown reasons. Triassic has re-implemented the poacher.
