Because the vanilla Desert Eagle just wasn't cool enough.
Adds two new pistols, being two fancy Desert Eagle variants, to the game for you to play around with. The scaling on the vanilla Desert Eagle has always been a little funky, and the model/textures have always looked a little weird on top of that, so when I got my hands on some fancy new Desert Eagle assets courtesy of Leon it was only natural that this happened.
The L5 variant is a more practical weapon, which can be made into another 70-odd damage pistol if desired or kept at its 100-damage tier and buffed through pistol skills or Berserker Aced.
Meanwhile, the Mk. XIX variant is an absolute behemoth that melts everything in its path and shows no mercy to anything that breathes. You're gonna love it.
They're also both fully skinnable, and both come with custom firing/handling sounds for maximum blammo. Oh, and they also have customizable waifu grips, because why not?
...Okay, in retrospect, there are several good reasons why not, but still. Humor me, okay?
Requires Custom Attachment Points (or WeaponLib).
Requires Extra Attachment Tweak Data (or WeaponLib).
Requires Weapon Painter (not really, but you need it to get the waifu grips to work).
Goes in mod_overrides.
Spoiler!* Unfuck the magazines - they should be custom models instead of the vanilla deagle mags, but for some reason model tool implodes on me when I try to replace them.
* Add an "Extras" module, with unique sights, stocks, muzzles, and sound kits.
* Add a .44 Magnum Case-Hardened Desert Eagle - GermanTacos was going to be contributing this, but life happened. Or something. I dunno. Sorry.
* MOAR waifus.
Spoiler!* Because I was forced to use the vanilla mags with their awkward proportions, the XIX's reload has some minor wonkiness. At least it's minor enough to be tolerable...
* There might also be some minor slide lock wonkiness on some computers because CAP part_attach_bruh is weird like that. Whoops.
