Cyberpunk 2020 Polymer one shots
Looking at the age of 3D printers and the sheer amount of things you can make with them it's no surprise that some folks are using them to make firearms. Different variations, materials, etc. Some need other parts, some don't, etc. It's all a really neat bit of future tech many thought would be a few more years off yet.
This got me to thinking about Polymer one shots in Cyberpunk 2020.
Instead of having them stocked with a preselected limited variety of plastic firearms. Why not have the entire set up be like a big 3D printer in a box? Complete with a variety of material to make different colored plastics, the needed metal bits (if any) and the ammo to go into them.
A kiosk for these things could have a touchscreen much like the Redbox we see everywhere now. Pick from a huge list of choices in design and look. Add on some graphics, maybe even load up a picture to have printed on the sides. Custom logos could really add some details. Then hit the start button and give it some time and 'kachunk' it drops your new gun into the bin. Of course by this point the printers would be faster than what they are now, maybe even five minutes or less on a good job.
Going to have to crank out some new stats for these along with some variation depending on how much you want to pay. Maybe even some negatives or unknowns in case a shady dealer loaded up cheaper plastic material in there this week.
Don't forget you can find the core book in print and pdf over at Drivethru. Cyberpunk 2020 from R.Talsorian.
