Ballistic Weapons replaces UT2004's wepaons with a batch of new, realistic, high quality weapons using an enhanced weapons sytem with reloading, aiming, firemodes, improved damage behaviour and much more to give the game a more tactical style. All the items have also been replaced and the mod uses totally original sounds and effects. The entire mod is implemented through a mutator so it is compatible with all gametypes and many different mods. It also comes with a melee mutator to play using only the melee weapons. Decent bot support has been included, allowing the bots to use all the new weapons. The mod has also been designed to be very mod friendly so as to serve as a base for other mods allowing most features and systems to be implemented using just the default properties of new weapons. A manual is included with the mod as well.
This long awaited, publically designed but RuneStorm developed bonus pack, includes 8 more high-quality weapons, that differ mostly from the usual BW style. These weapons were not designed to be new BW weapons, rather as seperate weapons based on Ballistic Weapons systems and implementable through BW. This pack contains some strange and devastating weaponry, including old-west style armaments, to mythical alien staves and destructive futuristic cannons. As well as the new weapons, the brand new vehicle, the "Thor" Assault Tank, has been included.
