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.
This is an extremely high-quality mod for UT2004. You have to remember that the people who made this did it for free. And let me tell you, this is definitely not a free-quality type mod. It pretty much takes the normal UT2004 gameplay style and completely replaces it with totally new experience. Lots of time was put into this mod and it's just exploding with content. Though, I hope they put the weapon drop links back up or else I'll be very sad :(
