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

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