The Weapons of Max Payne: The Mini-30 Rifle (New Video, Screens & 360-Degree Renders)

Posted on February 24 2012, 11:30am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Our latest feature on the wide range of high-powered weaponry from Max Payne 3's awesome arsenal focuses on the Mini-30 rifle - a deadly piece of kit that's built like a tank and packs the punch of one too. Whether at a distance via scope or at close quarters, the rapid fire and lightweight nature of this rifle makes short - and messy - work of enemies.

Explore the video module above to see its brutal stopping power, impressive range and precise accuracy in action, along with detailed 360-degree renders that show off all of its individually modeled components and a selection of all-new screenshots.

    Good choice of weapon, Ruger "Mini"-pattern rifles are really under-appreciated, as far as gaming goes. I really appreciate how you guys have modeled an incredible amount of detail into them. Personally, as far as Ruger "Mini"-pattern rifles go, I prefer wood to synthetic, but I guess it'd look too much like an AK, aesthetically, if you did that.

      @tHeTeXan2011 Cheers

      @MeanBob91 Look for soundtrack details coming up closer to the release of the game, and remember that the soundtrack is included with the Special Edition:

        Hi R*!

        I definitely can't wait to play Max Payne 3 as I've been a fan of Remedy's previous installments and I hope it'll be the best R* has ever released. At first I was worried about the way this installment was headed, but now I'm definitely excited!

        Anyway, I have 2 questions regarding Max Payne 3. The first one being a bit long because it involves the original games that are very dear to me:

        1) In many interviews and previews, it's been said that Max Payne 3 has been said to stay true to its roots of the original games with it's gameplay mechanics, narrative, bullet time, and more - to be up to today's standards, which I'm definitely happy about. You guys weren't kidding when you're saying that at all, but one thing that made Max Payne an iconic franchise in my opinion was the music in the 1st and 2nd game - the work of Kartsy Hatakka and Kimmo Kajasto. Are they reprising their music experience with the game or is someone else stepping in? Is the new composer(s) coming in with a new approach with a different feel, trying to stick to what we've heard in the original games, or a bit of both?

        2) What is the lead platform for Max Payne 3?

            @tHeTeXan2011 In Max Payne 3, Max can carry three weapons at a time, including two smaller one-handed weapons and one larger two-handed weapon, check out this edition of Asked & Answered for more details:

            @Genesicity We haven't made any announcements about doing that, keep in mind that we did release "The Art of Grand Theft Auto IV" with the Special Edition back in 2008

              Where does all this anger come from with some trolls, wish Max was here to take care of them XD

              Maybe slightly off topic but regarding those wicked artwork R* artists concoct., could they ever be bundled in a art-book or something , so we can get to see the sketches and development of some of our favorite characters.
              This was not doable maybe a few years ago due to the number of games but the prospect seems like the games are gonna keep piling up , bet you guys have an archive full of cool drawings and concept sketches..please share this with the world :D I would really, really, really build a shrine for a book like that:D

                I wish people would stop asking for GTA V news, haven't they realized that Max Payne 3 is Rockstar's upcoming game, and therefore the one they need to focus on right now? It's annoying...

                @emmi18176860 Many thanks for the infomations man, much appreciated!

                  Hi RockStar, In Max Payne 3, will you be able to have all of your weapons at the same time Like Red Dead Redemption? Or will you only be able to have a set of weapons at a time like in Grand Theft Auto? For example, you can only have the AK-47 and M4 one at a time in GTA. Many Thanks!

                      I like all the news from the games that come so like MaxPayne3. And guy's if you don't like to read all of this go play your games that you have and wait for other news from the games that may come "YES BE PATIENCE". On The Socialclub newswire we have always talked about the new games (For Long Time Now) that would be released so that we get all the food that we want from the great games. We get more and more hungry to get in action for MaxPayne3 and this is all becauce R* gives us the news, screenshots and video's. Sometimes we get some other FUN news what has to do with or without the games (lol) thats also fun to read and to see.

                      So R* let the news come we like it very very mutch.

                      This all THNX to ***Rockstar*** :D:D:D

                        @rockstarTHEBEST, Look we all here respect GTA series as it is something special and creative not just for that reason but also we did not forget that this game is from the most wonderful developers throughout the ages (Rockstar).


                        @ DG simo did not say anything wrong , he is absolutely right as this time is just for Max Payne 3 to shine and after it released then R* will think to give you all what you need to hear about GTA V ( This is the rules before)

                        Believe me i'am also waiting to hear anything about GTA V but we have to be more patient!

                          i think max payne will also die in the end BudgetCross,like in the film LEON were he walks away in slo mo with dramatic music playing and gets gunned down,that film still makes me shed a tear,either that or he will die of a heart atack or something(max has put on a few pounds hasnt he) but i hope he doesnt die that would be sad.

                              @The-Dark-Night I get that creepy feeling that Max is going to die at the end!

                                  @ R* will we be shocked/surprised to how the game ends? please drop a little hint or something.Also what kind of games are you or would like to create in the future? i would really like to see some new IP`s coming out of an awsome and talented company as yours,will u create a new franchise or stick to making sequals to your awsome games like the mighty GTA?

                                      Thanks alot for your prompt reply! I have read the article and wondered - as the article says you will play as Max or Passos - can you use the special edition classic characters pack Max Payne 2 skin as Max? I have already pre-ordered my special edition!

                                      Again, much appreciated,
