I'll be doing a live broadcast modeling and texturing the [Laser Beam Sword](http://gamebanana.com/concepts/77 "") so feel free to give it a look!
Part2.2: Normal Baking, Texturing, Shaders:
That was it guys! I hope you liked this quite long but great progress with creating this Laser Beam Sword! A big thanks to [Yogensia](http://gamebanana.com/members/1328950) for the help with compiling it for L4D2!
I'd say move the rods down to the grip to form some sort of guard for your fingers, but if they rotate to generate the beam, you're going to break your hand if you did that...
Anything that blocks the beam as a design on the weapon is going to make it useless as a weapon
