I feel that one of the strengths of this game is how well it captures the feel of a first person shooter. A big part of that is the variety of weapons and their names. However, it is baffling to me that they spent the time to come up with some great names for secondary modes and other weapon upgrades then failed to print these on the cards. While we did our fair share of trash talking while playing (which really adds to the experience), it would have been even better if we could have referenced secondary modes specifically. Does this omission seem strange to anyone else?

In any case, I decided to print out the names on clear sticker paper and apply to my cards. Found "Ethnocentric" font on the web that matches perfectly. Can't wait to play our next game with these.

Couldn't agree more, Chris. Well done. Would you mind posting your files to the files section?

These are fantastic! And yes please put the files in the file section (and let us know if/when you have).

Do you have a link to the type of sticker paper you used?

Looks awesome! Plus it helps somewhat explain some of the optional/ alternate modes.

I have submitted my MSWord file to the site. Hopefully it will be made available soon.

NOTE: I used Avery clear full sheet labels to print mine (product #18665).

Super thank you! And did you just print on a normal home printer?

Oh my god, thank you, yes, I need this!
This had occurred to me while going through the instructions and I figured it might be so that they didn't have to reprint the cards in multiple languages, however, the name of the gun is on the top, in english, so that's not it. Anyway, I'm eagerly waiting for your files to appear!!!

Ordered some paper from Amazon so should be able to do this soon. I'm lucky enough to have both of the promos - does anyone know what the alternate fire modes for them are called? Maybe Paul can help?

Just printed a set and snickered these up - nice work thank you!

I would also suggest uploading the file as a PDF rather than a word document, so that people don't need to hunt down and install the font.

Just need the names for the promos now, although it would be nice if the primary fire modes had names too!

Thanks again!
