    I recently got the fansproject explorer and completed my bruticus upgrade and was disappointed that there was no storage for the anti-matter rifle in combined form. So in just a few minutes I found a way to safely, and securely, attach it to the backpack. All you have to do is transform the gun like you would for vehicle mode, then insert the round peg into the right cavity on the backpack and rest the combined form's handle in the backpack's handle. Refer to the attachment for better instructions.

    Actually, it also stores on his forearms in folded-up mode. I think of it as an arm cannon that supplements his finger cannons. :D

    Is his weapon an Anti-materiel rifle? It does look like one. Does it come with a name in the instructions?

    Sorry, I know I'm being nitpicky, but I have to clear up the seeming misconception. An anti-materiel rifle is very different from an antimatter rifle. Anti-materiel rifles are real-world firearms used to blow holes in things with large-caliber bullets. Antimatter rifles are fictional guns that somehow make use of antimatter (usually it's assumed that the gun shoots antimatter, but since it's all sci-fi, the exact usage of the antimatter doesn't need to be, and usually is not, specified).

    Again, apologies for the nitpicking; I'm not trying to be a dick, just throwing in some unsolicited information.

    Right, which is probably why it takes it's design cues, such as the magazine and muzzle brake, from the Barrett M82, a modern anti-material weapon.

    Materiel =/= Material.

    It isn't a spelling mistake, folks. They're different. ;)
