M4 Inaccuracy Trivia Something I noticed about the Blue Shift Mod weapon for the “M4” is that it’s actually not an M4.

Their legs are strengthened with metal implants, and other synthetic augmentation keeps them alive and behaved.”
The evolution of Adrian’s iconic OP4 look in Reinstated Episodes 1-3 (3 in development). The third will be the final design change as I feel it’s now in a good place to go forward on.
Our first look at Adrian Shephard’s redesigned appearance for the new episode. This took a couple years, and jobs + college didn’t help either, but we got it to work! I’d like to thank Beren Rodgers, Yukon, Mr. Marooned, and the others on my team for making it a reality!
