The Gun wiki last edited by noooonottheface on 12/26/17 09:52PM View full history

Overview

GUN was developed by Neversoft (of Tony Hawk Pro Skater fame) and was an Open World game in a Western setting. The plot was written by Randall Jahnson (Mask of Zorro, The Doors) and follows the life of Colton White after he finds out his father isn't really who he claims to be.

Gameplay

The game plays from the third person perspective in which players play as Colton White in a free-roaming environment. Aside from the main story missions spread throughout the world are several types of side-missions and activities including poker games, cattle herding, law enforcement, and hunting. Side missions reward money which players can use purchase upgrades such as additional health slots and speed loaders.

Throughout the game players may gain access to a wide variety of authentic weaponry of the era including six shooters, rifles, shotguns, bows, and thrown explosives. When attacking enemies a "Quickdraw" meter fills up and when activated switches the game to the first person perspective as well as entering a Bullet Time like state in which players can gun down their foes whilst in a state of slow motion.

Colton White wakes up to his father Ned's call. They hunt game together supplying food and furs to steamboats traveling the Missouri river. They board a boat called the Morning Star where Ned meets with a girl named Sadie. She shows him something stored in the ship's safe. A suspicious looking man introduces himself to Colton as Reverend Josiah Reed. Colton follows him the the front of the ship where he hassles Sadie, telling her to tell him where "it" is. When she runs, he kills her with a throwing tomahawk then signals for a group of ambushers to come aboard. Ned and Colton hold them off until the boilers begin to blow. Ned gives Colton a coin for The Alhambra telling him to ask for Jenny. Colton refuses to leave his father behind so Ned grabs him, tells him he's not his real father, and throws him overboard just as the boat explodes - setting Colton on his journey.
