It sounds great to me!

Though I think it should have a stormy name to go with the whirlwind.

Whirlwind ----> Hurricane.

ShadedExalt -----> TwistedShadows

Depends on if I was an evil ruler that transcended into a twisted shadowbeast, or a twisted, insane spectre who transformed into the shadowy ruler of the ghost realm.

Whirlwind-->Typhoon

Whirlwind-->Maelstrom

I like Maelstrom Heavy Gatling most. Has a nice, deadly, ring to it.

There's already a typhoon heavy flak.  I like maelstrom the best so far.

That is a good name, but I don't think it would be a Gatling. It should be a quad machine gun.

Maybe... But just "machine gun" doesn't really tell you anything about it.  Gatling is more descriptive.

Gatling is a specific type of machine gun. I was thinking this would be a single barrel box or drum loader, circa WWI-II, with some sort of barrel cooling like a Vickers or Browning.

Here is a remake of the first mockup using modified and enlarged Vickers machine guns. I forgot to add the ammo count layer back in.

Nope. Linear reciprocating motion.

What if, instead of four barrels, it is just a giant galling, and you are looking from the middle of the ring of barrels when you are shooting?

...I dunno.

I don't think that'd be very practical.

That would not really increase the fire rate, and would look a bit silly from outside. Like a giant hamster wheel.

All it would really do is increase the time it takes for barrels to wear out.
