Simulation games have always been a genre that is popular in gaming. Recently there have been a few titles released that have been interesting and fun. Now we have a title that requires the player to run a gun repair and customisation business, much along the lines of PC Building Simulator and Car Mechanic Simulator 2021. Gunsmith Simulator is in early access, so there are going to be a few issues and stuff before it leaves early access but let us take a look below at how it is shaping up.

Gunsmith Simulator is a game where you must earn your living by working on guns. You take over the shop from your grandfather and your first job you are giving is restoring his Colt M1911 that is not in the best condition. You have a computer in the shop which is used to read emails as well as accessing the websites where you can buy gun parts, take part in auctions and access the board where you can see available jobs that you can accept to earn your living.

The worked required to complete the guns vary from job to job. While some will require having to have new parts purchased to restore them, others may just require a simple cleaning as they have rusted or something. No problem as in your workshop you have various benches which have different tools for the tasks. Others might want some mods done, like adding a laser sight to it, which means going on the computer and ordering the new part and fitting it when it arrives.

The nice thing with this simulator is that when you are disassembling the guns, you get to see the parts laid out on a mat and each part is labelled. This is fun as it allows you learn what parts are what and see how they are attached and where they belong. This was the best part for me as I like seeing how things work and get an understanding. After you have completed the job and returned the gun back to the owner, you get paid and XP points so that you can level up and get newer jobs.

When you have finished the gun you are working on you have two options to either return to customer or go to the shooting range. The range is available so you can test out your work and see how it fairs. You can shoot either standard targets down range or clay pigeon shooting, both add a bit of fun to the game. The visuals in Gunsmith Simulator are very clean and looks very detailed. Every part is detailed and looks good as if it was real. The sounds were realistic and are easy on the ear to give you a feel of shooting a gun as if you were at the range.

Longevity at the moment is not great but this might be due to being early access. As you progress you will find yourself working on the same gun later on, but this will probably be sorted when more content is added as it works towards coming out of early access.

Final Thoughts

Gunsmith Simulator is a fun game to kill an hour or two while waiting for something. The gun range is fun and learning about the various guns and how they work through disassembling is interesting. More content and guns are required, but this will probably be sorted later on. At the moment it is shaping up to be a great title.
