GameSpot: The Weird Ways Games Use Calibers


NeoGAFs Kent Brockman

While Call of Duty 4’s iconic Barrett anti-materiel rifle and the loud, flashy Desert Eagle are both 50 caliber, when it comes to firing them in our games, they’re very different. With the help of Keeper of Firearms & Artillery, Jonathan Ferguson, we’ve come to the Royal Armouries museum in the UK to find out what caliber means, and what it tells us about the virtual firearms we’re carrying into multiplayer arenas.

In this episode of Loadout, Dave Jewitt visits the Royal Armouries to talk to Keeper of Firearms & Artillery Jonathan Ferguson to chat about how games tackle the topic of calibers - the big, the small, and the weird.
