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.

As of v2.1 and BWBP4, the mod features 41 weapons, numerous customizable options, dozens of features for the weapons, gametypes and more, and an elaborate blood an gore system. V2.5 will update the roster of weapons to 47 in total.

Animated pickup animations

Far Cry 2 inspired pickup animations now featured in Ballistic Weapons! Each BW weapon can be picked up with a beatiful animation. 9 different Animations are present and all of the stock BW weapons are setup to use the new animations. The pickup system is entirely mod ready. Different Bonuspack guns can be easily added to an external ini located in 2k4s system folder without writing any line of code. Further, each weapon, even the stock ones, can be configured individually. If you dont like the way a gun is picked up, you simply change the animation number, rotation and the location offset yourself.

If you picked up an item, it will be equipped automatically.

Here are a few screenshots:


• Fixed client physic emulation
• Fixed client gore effects
• specific Neck break- and heartbeat sound for robots

This is the most marvelous mod for UT2004, and I can't wait for the V10 for massive mayhem!

Some weapons that I would like to see in the future:
- A vortex cannon
- Models like FAL, SCAR-H, Pancor Jackhammer and/or M60
- A heavy harpoon gun and/or a large nail gun
- An assault rifle w/ depleted-uranium rounds
- A railgun like Mag-Charge from TimeSplitters 3
- A crystal gun, as used by Dark Eldar Scourgers of WH40k
- Radioactive grenades
- An explosive-rounds sniper rifle
- An ice gun, like the ice beam from Metroid Prime
- Some steampunk models! :D
- A slowdown field
- A crossbow, like the crossbow from GoW
- Disruption grenade launcher
- A parasite weapon that drains life
- A micro-rocket launcher minigun
- A low-frequency laser assault rifle
- A noise shockwave cannon
- A weapon like Death Spinner as used by Warp Spiders (WH40k too)

I know that these stuff already exists in another mods, but I mean to see them with the BW system.

What about a plasma/laser futuristic bow? Like magical bows in some rpgs where the arrows are created when the user draws the string.

Ethereal arrows, sounds good!

I would like to see heat-seeker and/or EMP 'ethereal' arrows, that temporally deactivate vehicles, launched by a steam-powered automatic crossbow :3

I know what you mean. Having multiple download options really helps.
Btw, there is nothing wrong with your English, it's not bad at all.

I'd really love help with a problem here. The BW Vehicles won't appear in Onslaught, I've tried both BW version and non-BW version of Onslaught, but in vain. I really need help with this.

I've tried both of them, neither of them worked, so that's why I'm asking for help.

Ok, so I tried the mod more than a year ago and tried the latest version today, and have to say this is in my top10 mods ever.

The weapons are freaking awesome, and there is so much of them. The animations and the "feel" you get out of them is great !
Great Fun.

Thanks to all of you who are making this mod live.

Guns, grenades, knifes and swords... I was wondering if you could add a bow with retrievable arrows (like with the throwing knife) too?

there's a nice bow, with arrow types and stuff like that, in the Unreal4Ever mod

TakeOutTheTrash Feb 21 2013, 9:35pm replied:

That bow idea is great, with some arrow types, like pierce, flammable, explosive, poisonous, etc.

I'd like to see some nailguns, with the impaling effect over walls or ceiling when I kill an enemy, or a high frequency weapon with sonar resonance, capable to shoot through walls.

A momentum mine that deflects the trajectory of some weapons like rockets (though I think it must be difficult to program)

An injector with tranquillizer darts that slow or stun enemies

I really like to see an ice gun; stalagmite-crystallized bursts of 'fire' would be great.

This mod brings an entire new scope to the creativity of Unreal2k4, and keeps me playing to this day! Excellent mod with a fantastic arsenal and incredible level of customization to fit any player's style.
