Ugly definately ugly. Alien weapons should look like alien and imo aliens are ugly
I strongly disagree on that, the alien weapons should look scaringly hyper-advanced, sleek and beautiful in a bizzarre way! If they look ugly then the illusion of facing a enemy so advanced it can sacrifice artistic talent even into weapon design!
Pardon the engrish,

Make the gun look like it could work and then if possible w/o taking from the functionality make it aesthetic.
There should probably be a mix of designs IRL some guns are just plain beautiful and others are simple and functional.
If I remember correctly the higher the civilization the more time there is to make an object aesthetic instead of just functional. Eg. simple post and lintel door frames versus carved arches.

On the other hand, I think distinctive looks can be created based on the weapon tech being used, so while each series might be ugly compared to alien tech (which is intentional IMO), we'll be able to look at the battlescape, see a weapon on the ground, and know what it is/whether it's worth spending TUs to pick up.

Why would the guns not look streamlined?
The weapons in Interceptor were nice and streamlined but still liked like they could kick the Aliens buts back to their own dimension.
Oh, and more importantly, they did kick the old enemy in to a bloody pulp.
Green blood! YUCK!!!

I think that alien guns should be sleek and strealined and human ones should be more chunky, but not too chunky.
