Ancient Warfare 3: Players Can Now Create Custom Equipment in Update 0.38

Update 0.38 for Ancient Warfare 3 is now available. This patch introduces custom equipment creators that allow players to make their unique items.

Part of the charm of Ancient Warfare 3 is that players can customize almost every aspect of the game. In Update 0.38, custom equipment creators have been added that allow players to make the following types of items:

  • Melee weapons
  • Ranged weapons
  • Shields
  • Grenades
  • Helmets
  • Chest Plates
  • Arm/Leg Plates
  • Face Equipment
  • Middle Equipment (new slot for static equipment which is attached to the body of a unit)
  • Backpacks
  • Attachments (Sights, barrels, grips, laser/lamps, bayonets)

There are a few things to keep in mind about this new feature. First, items created using the custom equipment creators can be used anywhere in the game - be it custom battles, prefabs, etc.

Second, players do not need to download additional files as everything they need is already available in the battle/prefab/unit file.

And lastly, custom items are protected, meaning that only the owner/creator can modify the equipment, no one else can. However, the creator can opt to upload it on the game’s Steam Workshop page for others to use.
