Yeah it's going to be a strapped-on laser pointer.

Nice, I like the idea of it implanted on the Tau Cannon.Instead of ironsights for it, you would be able to turn the laser on for it.

That reminded me that in Half-Life/Half-Life: Opposing Force you could redirect the enemy rockets with the RPG/Deagle.

I want to see a Tau Cannon model which the internal part of the spin part glows in the dark.

That'd be a nice detail, but you'd have to figure out where the light source is coming from.

To be honest the light source isn't a problem as it can use the same setup as the Sniper Rifle and offset the laser to the position of the pointer.

Looks good W0rf0x, the only problem I have is with the stock, it may be possibly too large. I think the original leak cannon design might be based similar to the grav gun where it had a miniature stock and a possible off-angle side handle rather than a traditional gun handle. I might add a drawing a bit later.

Meh in that case the gun was just built to be held awkwardly, could you imagine having the massive butt against your right upper-arm and then reaching out with your left to hold the handle while having the thing repeatedly recoil into your face?

Presumably, the side-grip helps nullify the end-user recoil.

I thought about that also but as 70%-90% or the world are right handed, nullifying the recoil with the weaker arm wouldn't make sense. This was why I compared it to the design of the grav-gun. The lower handle down the centre helped handle the recoil while the side stalk was used for stability and controlling the gun. It's a concept idea that followed the Gauss Cannon which is why they have similar traits.

I dunno, it looks awkward with the Gravity Gun, but given how far forward it is on the Tau Cannon, it might make sense. Maybe not for reducing recoil, but stability is sort of the same thing anyways. I'd recommend looking at the viewmodel for the Negev in CS:GO for reference.

(Granted, that gun is ridiculously unstable.)
