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.

Post news Report RSS Sergeant Kelly's Pack - October Update

We've got a massive update this time with details on our new content release system! Also, a shoutout to the Ballistic Weapons devs!

Posted by on

This month we're introducing WEAPON DROPS!

What are WEAPON DROPS, you ask? Weapon drops are quantized beta releases for all you folk to enjoy and give feedback on, and which will give you a taste of what the full V10 package will be like! We'll be releasing batches of weapons individually over the coming months, aiming to release the first batch at some undefined point in the future!

The first pack will include some new weapons as well as updates and upgrades to the old favorites. The entire core of V9 will be released in the first pack, with three of the new guns making their debut. Check them out below.

Version 10 - SK-410 Shotgun

The SK-410 Assault Shotgun is the explosive automatic shotgun that will be replacing the legacy M781. (Note, the special ops version of the M781 will be released at a later date.)

Version 10 - TC9N Hammer Pistol

The T9CN "Hammer" is a fully automatic pistol that will be replacing the V9 GRS1.

Sergeant Kelly's Weapon Pack - Version 10

Lastly, the RS04 .45 Compact will be filling the shoes of the older RS04 .45 Handgun.

We hope you'll appreciate a gradual stream of new toys to play with - keep an eye out for the first release!


Additionally, we know how hard it can be to kick ass when swarmed with irate and unprofessional groupies, so we developed a brand new weapon to help you out there. Presenting the CX61 "Spectre" Precision Rifle!

Version 10 - CX-61

Perforate your enemies with the flechette burst primary fire or make use of the secondary gas system, which can release streams of healing G28 gas to assist your allies or incinerate your foes by igniting it!

Yes, we're serious. That G28 gas you have been huffing this whole time is highly flammable. We're talking no more facial hair for years flammable.


We'd also like to take this time to help our favorite modders and game developers, RuneStorm, for their creation of pretty much every UT2004 player's favorite mod, Ballistic Weapons. Without their hard work, this very mod wouldn't even exist. So again, we want to say thanks RuneStorm!

And because we are such big fans of RuneStorm, we want to help them out with their current project: Rook's Keep. They recently submitted it to Steam's Greenlight and need YOUR help to get it approved! It only takes a minute of your time to click that button and doing so will help ensure RuneStorm will be able to keep releasing kick ass stuff!

hah, looks like i'm first to comment :D
Spectre looks sweet and i like the idea of healing/flammable gas
How is it going to work with the friendly fire enabled?
And finally, you're actually going to release something.
Though i don't get why release it as an updated V9 if we can download that version separately?

Because V9 is part of V10, just like how V8 was part of V9. The older guns are always updated and included.

if your going to release the new guns like addonce why can't you use diffrent files so we only need to install the new guns that we just downloaded?(asumming there will be more gun packes l8ter)unless you want to improve the code of the weapon pack iteslf?or is it to replace the older weps with new once?

We'll be making bug fixes and performance improvements the whole time. We'll be adding whole version updates (and maybe patches) that will add the new weapons/change old ones and implement code changes that will be installed over the old version.

This makes keeping up to date easier, rather than presenting a bunch of files that you have to keep track of.

Just been informed by Sgt. Kelly that my facts are skewed. Either way you will be getting two guns out of this sucker, more or less.

Personally I liked the old brown M781 auto shotgun. Despite being mostly a recolor of the M731 shotgun, it somehow felt just right when using it.

Maybe leave the old version in, but have the new auto shotgun be slightly more different, like having a more focused spread and longer range?

I feel the same way, it's hard to describe, I guess it just feels versatile and well-balanced to me. I would definitely prefer if they don't overwrite that one.

You're basically getting two weapons from this one. It's split into one that is more oriented for close quarters and another that, well, isn't.

Stock BW puts us in a position where, due to the existing shotguns' insane power, the only way our guns could compete with them was simply make it even more powerful than the others. We're trying to step away from that and make the weapons have a more unique style to them and fill more specific roles rather than directly compete with stock.

I'm pretty sure you'll like what we did with it (them).
