@Didikins - You're completely missing the point. Weapons like the HG-40 and the FFAR exist because they're "fan-favourite" weapons, so to speak. It's just futuristic homage to popular weapons from the previous games. It's got nothing to do with Treyarch being out of ideas - they've made original new weapons too, like the L4 Siege, the Marshal 16 and the RSA Interdiction. Granted, none of those weapons are exactly lookers, but the principle is the same.
