GTA IV - Shark-O-Matic gun mod

This mod brings a gun inspired by Saints Row 3 Shark-O-Matic gun that will make a crazy shark break the ground and "eat" the victim :)


If you want share or make videos of this mod, please use the following link as reference in description:


Installation: This mod uses OpenIV Package Installer, see how to install here


Don't install the mod in the same GTA more than one time or you will generate wrong entries in beauty.ide (duplicated lines) that will make the game unable to create the models :)


Insert - Show mods menu

You can change the hotkey in the self-generated .ini file

Press insert, select the Shark-O-Matic option, then select option to equip the gun, you can set a hotkey to equip the gun in the mod .ini file :)

Known issues

Object animations don't appear in video editor :)

Sometimes the shark animation isn't synced with the victim animation.

The gun model was made based on pictures, so, it don't look so good as the original.
