Hope you all end up loving the set, especially if you're into sci-fi! This is my favorite set the team has released so far (with the Reaver re-release coming close second).

Aesthetics are cool, sounds are cool...no new anims? byeee

It has animated moving parts on the inside (turbines and the mechanism holding the orb).

There are plenty of animations. The reactors spinning, side panels opening up when you pull the gun out, etc. There's just no reload animation.

The orb pulses on reload. We tried something different with this skin with animations since not everyone wants new hand animations for a skin.

Default reload animation? Will that be fixed?

It's not a bug. There are animations on this gun through the spinning turbines and the orb mechanism. We want to try different ways to animate guns since some players want hand animation change (like with Reaver) but others want something that's more based on the gun itself.

Please continue trying different things! I'm a fan of new hand animations, but I love that you're trying different ideas of what a skin set should be.

Also more Frenzy love! Its been underappreciated thus far and there haven't been many great skins for it outside of Glitchpop.

Haha! I had people saying "no more Frenzy skins" after we did Elderflame and Glitchpop!

Sensation has a Frenzy skin. :)

ah. Hand animation is the distinction I was looking for.

I think that was a good choice. Although naturally not everyone will agree.

Since you worked with the animation team, does the front of the Bucky fade to a transparent panel like it does with the Sheriff? It unfortunately goes off-screen, so I can't tell if that detail made it in.

It does! You can kind of see it and you can definitely hear it!

Sorry, I should've clarified: new reload animations.

I was basically waiting for Singularity since release because it's the only Phantom skin with a different reload animation. Even still, that's a bit of a stretch cause the movement of removing the magazine isn't different, but the cocking animation changed at least.

Ah! Well the orb mechanism powers up and down on reload, so it's a different kind of reload animation/effect!
