    Don't have anything on me ATM - but you could check online for game screenshots.
    The game is a 3rd person shooter, so you should be able to see at least one leg...

    The truck has them - don't see them on the render...

    For the gun, you might consider getting a cheap nerf shotgun & adding junk to match the on-screen version...

    I'd just make a 3-fingered glove & cut craft foam to the shapes you need...

    I'd suggest doing the backs of the fingers like a Freddy Kreuger glove & you might just wanna paint the details on the insides of the fingers - making the grips out of foam would look cool, but it'd probably render your hand useless...
