FPS Starter is ideal for weapon artists & animators to test their creations in a familiar FPS environment.

The FPS Starter features basic functionalities known from modern FPS games. This includes logic for animations in all situations (Idle, Sprint, etc.), combined with weapon functionalities (Shooting, Reloading, etc.) to smoothly work together. 

The Animations use a custom Rig for the Mannequin Character. You can get the 3ds Max file for free Here

This package contains 2 weapons (SMG & Pistol) and simplified animations.
