    Title says it.

    Are Guns a deadly weapon,
    or would a shopkeep generally feel no so threatened by a robber with a gun

    if you can take a Porto Cannon Sniper Headshot by using Aura to stay Perfectly Fine ?


    Most hero weapons have Guns Mode.

    Most hero guns are pretty much worthless, including the porto cannon Crescent Rose.

    (Did Ren's guns bother the snake at all??)

    well all the atles soldiers use guns and so does iron wood, so yes they work.

    --SPOILERS: --


    We see BigJim use his magnum after an Atlas robo-trooper unloads into a grim and get ripped in half by that un-bothered grimm. 20rnd rifle burst at In-Yo-Face range should do more than 'nothing'


    Pyrrha tells Jonny that Grimm dont have souls or Aura,

    yet we see grimm take serious firepower without being bothered. (Ren-Snake, BigJim-Beo, 2Teams-Nevermore, everyone-soulessMechRobo)

    I think it's possible that Grimm may sort-of anti-auras that work similiar like normal auras but are sort of twisted like the Grimm

    we see the atlas troops killing lots of ursa,

    ruby mowing down beowolfs in the red trailer with just the rifle,

    iron wood destroys bots and grim with a few shots,

    and coco rips apart grim with a gun.

    Deadly to things without Aura yes.

    But things with Aura can probably close the distance between the firer and themselves without dying so that they can bring melee weapons to bear on their foe, hence rendering the gun useless. Which would explain why almost every gun can transform into a melee weapon, its the failsafe for this eventuality.

    I'm very curious to see how a military engagement unfolds in Remnant. Is everyone just the same as real world military personnel but with Aura acting like a personal force field, or its it just a crazy mass of people in different uniforms running at each other shooting wildly?

    Please rewatch the whole show. There are plenty of Grimm and one or two people (like Tukson) who get shot in this show. Yes, guns are deadly. Of course you would need bigger calibres to kill a Death Stalker or Goliath, because they are giant and heavily armoured. You can't destroy a tank with a pistol afterall. The only character that uses the proper size would be Junior with his rocket launcher/ bat. Oh no, Yang broke it. LOL


    EDIT: Don't worry. I'm pretty sure, we'll see a lot of people and Grimm die in many different ways (getting shot included) in volume 4.

    I don't think they are as deadly as one would think.The fact that they use dust instead of gunpowerder makes them a multi hit weapon, and a side weapon at best!

    You also have to keep in mind that they use the guns for more than just killing. Ruby uses it to quickly traverse the battlefield/negate falls, we see people initiate fights with their guns to force the enemy to evade and throw off their positioning, use the terrain to their advantage, and a lot of the time they're used to try to weaken tougher enemies. Kind of like filling the gaps between combo attacks with gun fire or just doing damage before their enemy advances into melee range.

    You dont shoot a deer a bunch of times to weaken it for a sword attack.
    You shoot a deer with one bullet to kill it.
    You shoot a buffalo with one bullet to kill it.

    You shoot a rhino with one bullet to kill it.

    You shoot a tank with one DUDart to kill it.


    Just what enemy was the Atlas military built to fight,

    if their guns were not designed to be efficient against grimm?


    3 robo troopers unloading battle rifles at point blank to take down one ursa...

    Remnant guns are not consistently deadly.

    BigJims gun was so weak he had to shoot the floor to knock a Beo over rather than just kill it with 2 in the chest from his magnum. Yet later we see him go gun-kata to 1-shot a bunch for "This area is secure" .


    Remnant guns are only as deadly

    as they plot needs them to be AT THAT MOMENT.

    Physics in Remnant are not consistant.

    RedTrailer showed Ruby reloading a magazine into her gun: On her belt are complete ammo cartridges with the tip, and it rained short empty brass after she shot.


    Pretty indicative of 'bullets' being a tech they got

    Maybe they do have the same physics as us. You have to remember that everyone who uses these overpowered guns has an aura. maybe it offers some protection from the recoil and the extra weight these weapons have. it would explain why the robots and some of the white fang only use average fire arms like in our world while hunters have more powerful ones. Not to even mention we don't know how exactly dust would alter the physics of a bullet. Dust is basically a source of magic in remnant so who knows what it could do.

    A 15 year old girl being able to handle the recoil

    You talking about the recoil she uses to propel herself across the battlefield, or launch herself into the air?


    What keeps those floaty transport ships and battlecruisers in the air? The ability of Dust to overcome Newtonian physics? A simple hand wave by the writers and all guns in Remnant use dust to dynamically negate recoil... none when you dont want it yet plenty of recoil when you are falling and use porto canon blasts to abate your fall

    And yet I shot a deer from about 40 ft. w/ a .50 cal. black powder rifle, Lung - lung, knocked it to the ground watched it jump right back to it's feet. Thought I missed. chased it about 200 yards before it collapsed. Getting a kill with a gun is hard enough even with a supposed proper caliber and time to line up your shot. Now try that while both you and your target are moving around well things just get harder.

    As for your little girl handling a .50 cal. comment - look up Michelle Chestnut.

    Heres a rifle that could use a lil more power from Dust

    Where is the Remnant version?

    BigJim would TOTALLY have Atlas make him one


    EDIT:

    Seems now we get editor wysiwyg Youtube embed working,

    but then it dont show in the actual post

    of course it's deadly.

    There are reason the character still trying to dodge gun shot.

    And team RWBY is a group of prodigy inside the school for the best of the best. They still feel the need to dodge gunshot even if the damage isn't visible. What can a normal shop keeper do?

    Best of The Best?

    Time and time again we see the badguys
    be better than the 'best of the best'.

    If someone in Remnant wanted to REALLY be the best,

    they should go to Villain Camp not huntclub

    The villain are older and more experienced than them, and while they lose they still can keep up with the villain.

    Beacon in-series as the school for talented huntsman that prove how exceptional team RWBY are.

    The Villain Camp? Oh look who is the so panicked that he got swallowed by Grimm? Roman for all the talk he got consumed by fear that the Grimm just swallowed him.

    And Cinder? For all the power she got, she almost get defeated by a first year student with magnet power. And she has full power of the maiden.

    Emerald and Mercury while do jot have unconfirmed age, Mercury do lose to Yang even it wasn't if he is holding back or not. And Emerald is only dangerous because of her illussion hax.


    The only one truly dangerous here are Adam because of the nature of his semblance. Bit he also older than team RWBY.


    Remember the good guys are first year student. And the bad guy has trouble with them.

    Mercury losing to Yang?

    You do remember him beating Coco and Yatsuhashi almost by himself, two people who have proven to be quite a bit stronger than Team RWBY when we first saw them in Breach. Also let us not forgot Neo, who has never once actually been hit herself...

    Almost by himself? He and Emerald needed to split both of Yatsuhashi and Coco with Emerald illusion hax.

    He did not Solo team CY.

    And it was never stated that team CFVY are stronger than RWBY. The Deathstalker and Nevermore in the 'Breach' are smaller and possibly younger than the one in the 'Player and Pieces'.


    In the fight against Neo Yang is already tired from the previous hunt and frustrated. I won't say Yang would win but if she were in fresh condition the fight would not be that one sided.


    I admit that the villain are currently stronger than the hero(which is justified as the hero are first year). But they aren't as overpowered as you made it out to be.
