At EVA, we are constantly refining our products to be better according to our user’s experience. Today, we are so excited to be able to share with you our latest 3D printed gun shell design and how it works!




The EVAgun is composed of a metal base for durability and 3D printed parts.  It is generally black with a slick and futuristic design, as well as line designs in either white or orange to identify the different teams. To ensure that it is on brand, there is also an EVA logo engraved and printed on the sides of the gun. 




As you may have noticed, the EVAgun design is very stylized so that it doesn’t resemble a real gun for kids to play with. It is composed of a metal base and 3D printed parts. It weighs 1.4 kg when it's fully equipped to keep the perfect balance for it to be carried around easily, while keeping the real feel or carrying a gun around. 



Some 3D printed guns are incredibly light, which make it very easy to be swung around. However, we felt that a competitive esports game should have a more realistic feel to maintain a competitive gameplay. The length of the gun is around 80cm long, it is designed to be held with both hands and braced firmly against the player's shoulder via a buttstock for stability during shooting.

The EVA gun also has a strap bound to the player, allowing them to rest when they are 'dead' in game instead of having to carry the gun around. 




The EVAgun is also designed for the operators to be able to switch out the controllers easily with minimal time. The secondary controller is attached to the head of the gun for tracking purposes. To switch it out, all you need to do is to slide it in and out of the bracket. 


On the other hand, the primary controller acts directly as the trigger handle of the gun. The control holder is designed specifically in a way so that it won’t disrupt tracking while preserving the fragile crown of the controller.



EVA full hardware


As shown in the image above, all our EVA guns as well as other hardware are neatly tucked away at the side of the arena so that the players can equip themselevs while the other game is ending. The key is to reduce the turnover time in between games so that we the EVA arena is fully optimised. 



We hope you've enjoyed this little piece of article and we can't wait to open EVA's doors to you guys once the confinement is over!
