Choosing the right weapon is sometimes vital. Depending on the team’s strategy and your own preference and skills, it’s essential to practise with different types of weapons, master them and get to know their strengths and weaknesses.

In the single player campaign, you can find Parsis weapons and ammo in specific locations, but forsaken weapons can only be taken by force. In multiplayer however, you have access to all weapons, so prepare and size up your weapon of your choice!

This free or do you need Unreal Tournament 3 for this? Appearantly', you need UT3 on steam for UDK.

- UDK is a standalone toolset, no need for UT3.
- UDK is NOT a modding tool.
- Projects made with UDK work standalone, no need for your players to have UDK installed.
- It's basicly Unreal Engine 3 (the full thing), but binary only.

For some reason UDK games lag like hell on my computer, even though games like Modern Warfare work without lag on the highest quality.

They are currently working on Unreal Engine 4, and have you seen the demonstration for it? It looks like real-life!

I also heard that everyone who is legally licensed to use Unreal Engine 3 to develop their games will get free access to Unreal Engine 4 when it is released.
