Make Bullet Shrapnel Identifiable by Microscope


Recommended Posts

What it says on the tin! Make it so forensic techs can put bullet shrapnel in a microscope slide, and then into their microscope - which will then print off a report giving the class of bullet it came from.

This will make investigating shootings far more fun, and allowed forensics to interact with surgeons more on autopsies and such.

perhaps have it simply say what gun it was fired from? May not be the most realistic but would be more practical (as in saying it was fired from a shotgun, or revolver, modified revolver, etc.)

The type of bullet already tells you this. A slug came from a shotgun, a 9mm came from a pistol or SMG, 5.56 came from an automatic rifle, and 7.62 comes from sniper rifles usually. It’s deductive reasoning.

Thread name and proposal do not seem to match upon initial inspection. Is this meant to represent bullet grooving, at which point you'd get a "fingerprint" of a gun; or is it meant to identify the gun type, which can perhaps already be done by shift-clicking the bullet?

This is for shrapnel, which you sometimes get from bullets - or at least I thought you did. I'm working under the assumption that sometimes when doing surgery, you don't always extract a full bullet. If you do always extract a full bullet, this can be ignored and we can pretend it eeeever happened.
