Weapons are determined by a combination of doctrine and technology and logistics. Making guns at a large scale is a logistical hassle. Assuming your orcs don't have the logistical support, they might put a premium on reliability and ease of manufacturing. If your orcs are numerous and often rely on sheer weight of numbers, their weapons might be focused on that close combat, favoring bayonets, grenades, shotguns, and submachine guns, closer to Russian automated rifles. If your orcs are few but powerful, the average orc gun might instead be something that favors long-range confrontation and extensive use of explosives - the average orc squad might rely on grenade launchers and extensive support from some self-propelled artillery. If it's a combination of both, orc warbands may feature a few "leaders" armed primarily with shotguns with grenade launchers, a number of grunts with grenades and submachine guns, and rabble armed with shotguns.

It's real-life slugga

Depending on the setting, if there's breech loaders, I'd imagine something large in caliber, single barrel.
Like a blunderbuss, but breech loading. Or just a normal blunderbuss for that matter.
It could vary depending on their logistics. If there's a roaming band of poorly led Orcs, they'd be shooting rocks and sharp sticks.
If there's a troop of seasoned vets, they'd probably have standardized equipment, potential sidearms. Or scavenged equipment from raids.

>> No.76978026

An AK-47 but less reliable in pretty much every metric. Alternatively they just use whatever they loot/trade from other more advanced groups.

Orcs use firearms looted or taken as a payment. Then reinforce them and add choppy and ripping bits to them. So they can also be melee weapons.

Orcs must always do a roll against failure when shooting. As they don't have consistent ammo supplies. Using old ammo and anything that chambers most of the way. Roll a 1 and it explodes. Destroying the weapon and causing hit point loss. 2 will jam the weapon. 3 will just be a failure to fire.

All melee attacks ignore improvised weapon penalties

>> No.76978827

This came out years ago and I'm still pissed off at the author. Pick one damn thing and run with it, orcs invent guns in a fantasy world even though they were losing in every possible way just a panel before? Sure. Why not, they had secret factories somewhere or something and nobody ever knew. Fine, follow that lead. But instead he used fakeout and reveal after fakeout and reveal leaving behind a frustrating and pointless story. Punchline being the whole war turns out to be some kind of joke by the human nobles.

Fantasy orcs, not 40k orks? Maybe something like the very early firearms, something pretty primitive and roughly made, with safety being low in importance. If it explodes, the victim's mates get laugh at him.

Looks like it has a firing pin on the top barrel, so I assume you load 6 shotgun shells to it and rotate each barrel to the top one at the time.

Well, for my own setting it depends on which nation/ethnicity of orcs, also guns are already a thing, so let's talk about modern firearms they might prefer.

>True Orcs
Tend to live in small tribal communities believing in the value of hardwork and action over words. They'd probably go for some kind of shotgun, something simple with versatile ammo payloads for a variety of situations that they could use for fighting or hunting. Likely even go so far as to say they'd basically favor the Winchester 1897 Shotgun or the closest modern iterations of it.

Are basically Rural Slavs so probably a nice hunting carbine. And likely something ridiculously high caliber for their comparatively small size because they feel "animals nor idiots understand warning shots, so don't bother with them. You use one bullet and leave one body."

Are a nomadic people and are seen as liars and thieves. Which is only half accurate because they tend to believe the bullshit they say and are kind of socialists who have this idea of communal ownership. And they are also kleptomaniacs. The point is they'd probably prefer a nice revolver for simple maintenance and something they can keep on-hand at all times.

Redneck orcish people. Expect more huntin' guns with colorful names and evenmore colorful decorations added to it.

Being the largest of the orcish people and the strongest race bar dragons and giants in the setting, on top of being stupidly tough, they tend to eschew weapons of any kind in favor of just 'wrasseling wit' tha boi!'.

>If fantasy orcs made guns what would they be?

A real piece of shit specifically """"designed"""" to be easy to make, inexpensive, and only just good enough so that you can use it to shoot someone else with a better gun and steal theirs. Also often specifically built with a heavy, dense, butt or barrel (can even have spikes) to be used as a club when it runs out of ammunition.
Ironically otherwise extremely tolerant to miserable conditions: sand, mud, snow, water, salt water, filth, sewage, all not an issue- whip it off with your sleeve, pour it out the barrel, dry it out, and it'll be good to go in no time.

Ogres in particular love having Orcish weapons because they make the BIG BOOM and you don't have to be delicate with them- which is difficult when you have fat Ogre fingers. You point. You click. Things turn into hamburger.

>> No.76987343

This is a pretty good angle. The orcs'd develop something that's practical from their perceptive while the other races diverge. They'll eventually see a human sized musket and go "Boom trunk so tiny, how am hit anything am so little metal rock? Me like orc boom trunk, not like human boom twig, me just point and hit! Big boom!" Or some shit like that.
