This is an abandoned game from the 2000s which still runs via a private server.

Unfortunately no one is able to produce new in-game weapons because the devtools don't exist anymore.

Is there a way to replicate how these designs were made?

That looks like 3D pre-rendered sprites.

pre-rendered. What is nice about this style, is you don't need to have clean 3d models for it to look good so you can go quickly and use cylindrical mappings instead of unwraps. No need for skinning either, just link the limbs on the bones and animate away.
Textures can be done quickly too, no need for too much detail there.
