Default Important Question

How do I put weapons on my xv8 crisis battlesuit so that I can switch around the weapons? I know your not suppose to super glue them on so u can switch them, but how else can i get them to stay on without super glueing them?

umm if you put thick paint in the sides of the cradle they hold by froction but a better way is with small magnets, or some people use locking mechanisims with wire.

Get two small magnets. Chissil out a small space on the suit and the weopon. Glue the magnets in place and then whala. Snap on, snap off weopons. or a small strip of velcro might work to if you dont want to chisil.

a chisel while inventive is inferior to a powerdrill the same size as the magnets ;D, simply glue in and viola swappable WS just like that

Most of the time you don't need magnets, for mine, after its undercoated and painted, its just a pressure fit into the mount.. and most of the time you can't really find magnets that small either..
