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.
Fuel-air explosives, massive shoulder mounted plasma cannons, quad-barreled rocket launchers... What more could one ask for?

First things first! We're steadily working on prepping the first weapon drop for you folks. The first release will be announced in advance, so you'll be sure to know when the first pack will hit. Onto the news!
This month we've come to the important conclusion that weapon recolors are far more boring than actual new weapons! The two weapons on showcase today are highly upgraded versions of old classics. It's been a hectic month here, with old team members leaving and new ones joining, however the net result has been positive as we got a kick-ass plasma cannon out of it!
This here is the "Phantom" variant of the High Voltage Plasma Cannon Mk5. This heavy-duty blaster, modeled by Azarael, is the military grade version of the old HVC Lightning Gun-based design made by mad scientists back in the day. This sleek piece of art has many improvements over the original, including but not limited to, guidable plasma bolts, new firemodes, more power, and a slightly reduced chance to completely blow up in your face!
These little cute guys are the new highly-flammable variants of the G28 Medical grenades of V9. The FMD G28 Medicinal Aerosol grenades, modeled again by Azarael, are a dual purpose weapon that serve both as BW's first fuel-air explosive and as a portable healing device! Players can either toss this at their feet to heal with its potentially cancer-causing fumes, or toss it at an enemy and fire at it with an incendiary weapon to watch the fireworks.
To finish off our November update, we have some exclusive ingame shots of the new AT40 STREAK Launcher and the tactical LK05 carbine!
