A Mutator that re-balances the lower tier weapons in Unreal Tournament 2004 in order to make them more competitive.
I felt that the lower tier weapons in UT2004 were very underpowered. Being stuck with an assault rifle or bio-rifle, for instance, is pretty much a death sentence against someone using a flak cannon or rocket launcher -- no matter how good you are. Knowing this, I rebalanced these weapons to make play more forgiving with these weapons.
Download and install WinRar (shareware) to extract the files in the supplied archive.
Download this archive and extract the files into your UT2004\System folder. For retail users, that's usually C:\UT2004\System. For Steam users, it's C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\unreal tournament 2004\System. That's it! The mutator should now show up under your list of mutators when starting a game.
Players joining your server will not be able to join your server unless you add this mutator to your server packages (unless they already have it, of course). To enable download functionality, add the following line to your System\UT2004.ini under the [Engine.GameEngine] heading: ServerPackages=MutBalancedWeapons. It does not have to be listed last, but it should be listed after all of the packages that come with the game.
