"Arsenal Overhaul is a full weapons conversion for S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of Pripyat, created by E.Nigma42. It features 100 new weapons, 24 new ammunition types and 6 new suits. All vanilla weapon models have been replaced with high quality versions. All weapon sounds have been replaced with new original sounds and more variation in stalker NPC's."
Originally created by E.Nigma43, AO3 for CoP was ported to Call of Chernobyl by an anon from the Stalker Games General thread on /vg/.
Start with a clean installion of Call of Chernobyl that's been modded to 1.2.24.
Then unpack the archive into your Call of Chernobyl install directory, or just copy and override its contents (gamedata).
--Things to Note--
Seems like a very stable port so far. It's compatible with basically what you'd expect it to be, I'm using it as my base mod with another ~8 sitting on top with no issues.
Almost without exception I would place AO3 in your gamedata first, if you wish to merge in more mods then its generally safer work around your big mod first than drop it in at the end and have to deal with multiple overwrites - it's easier to leave out a small mod or two that would damage compatibility than to get to the end and realize that by merging your main mod you would completely break the game.
