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.
Every month we bring a few new guns to the table, and in this update we explain how in Soviet Russia, gun shoots knife!

We're keeping the content flowing with not two, but four weapons this time around! And because four is such a small number, we've also taken the liberty of piecing together a full length HD video of the previously announced guns in action!
This month we're covering the two previously announced firearms, the AK490 and X8 Ballistic Knife, as well as two newbies, the STREAK Rocket Launcher and the FALLSCHIRMJAGERMASCHIENPISTOLE 2012.
To avoid scaring the neighbors with our shouts, this gun is now colloquially known as the FMP-2012. Keen eyes may recognize this as an MP40, and that's because that is what the talented modeler Luchador designed it as! However, since this is the future, we'll be putting a couple twists on this classic firearm. What special features will this have, you ask? We have no clue.
Our second uninvited guest is the MDX-40 STREAK Rocket Launcher! This quad-barreled rocket launcher was modeled by the razor sharp contributor Blade Sword, and will pack quite the punch! Current BW rocket launchers are woefully single-barreled, and this weapon corrects that flaw. This gun can spit out all four rockets with a single trigger pull and will lay incendiary waste to absolutely everything in its path. Have fun reloading. ;)
This, comrades, is the AK-490 Battle Rifle. It's one helluva sturdy gun. This Russian beaut was modeled by Sergeant Smash and it will certainly give the M50 wielding capitalists a run for their dirty anti-proletariat money. Because shooting people is sometimes not enough, skilled Soviets commonly mount X8 Ballistic Knifes on the front. Others go the more direct route and smack people silly with its sturdy Soviet stock.
Now this, comrades, is the previously advertised X8 Ballistic Knife! This ultra sharp eating utensil can be launched from its casing to spear faraway prey, can be attached to our AK490 as a bayonet, or can simply be held in the hand for social occasions. Be careful not too launch all of your blades though, because we've found that attacking with the hilt is a good way to get shot.
The earlier videos we uploaded only offered fleeting glances at the new V10 weapons, so this month we're uploading a special full-length HD video that features only the brand new firearms. Enjoy!
