Deus Ex was a successful and very customizable game. But what about the fact everyone had the same exact type of pistol, assault rifle, shotgun, etc. What about the fact that some ammo types were completely under powered compared to their real life counter parts. Now you can enjoy Deus Ex with a more modern arsenal of weapons, including revamped and updated vanilla weapons. Enhanced AI, some maps are revamped, new weapons (More assault rifles, pistols, snipers, and explosives than you can shake a stick at.) , new ammo types (includes unique ammo types such as flame rounds, Armor Piercing and high yield explosive rockets).

Getting Started- Make a copy of your Deus Ex folder, though it may not be ideal. You will be dragging the mod files and replacing everything that conflicts, Make a back up of your Map and System folder for this reason.
I would strongly suggest the newest Shifter, New Vision, HDTP, and Updated Deus Ex Renderer/Textures all avaliable on Mod DB. The Enhanced pack fixes the scope size.

Any errors or bugs? Please report them if possible. Go to the thread viewtopic.php?f=36&t=11435 and feel free to post or PM me. Captain_Destro is my user name. Also let me know if you enjoy it, or if any weapons seem over/under powered.

Finally I would like to thank the offtopicproductions and alpha communities for all the help they have given me. I wanted to thank Naveos, Jonas, Miguel and DDL for the help so far, answering my stupid questions, etc.

Thanks to the authors of the Cassandra Project, Thanks to Clyzm for his model work @ Alpha Labs, and further more I want to thank the HDTP/TNM staff for their enhanced models/code. TNM Pistol/Rifle Upgrades are functional.

You can expect new weapons (old weapons are touched up to support fast paced combat.), new ammo types (and more types branching off those, hollow points, incidinery rounds, high yield explosive rockets, etc), a few revamped maps, more secret items, the ability to give more NPCs items.

The AI on enemies has been greatly enhanced, stealth is still possible but much more difficult. The Alert times is also increased, I tried making it some what realistic so that AI doesn't have the short term memory of a gold fish.

Expect a mini mod for TNM. It won't remove weapons as drastically as this did for Vanilla DX. But it will modify existing ones and add better AI/Introduce more weapons.

Coming soon are two new releases for Modern(ish) Combat. One release will be compatible with Biomod while the other takes a step back and is compatible for plain Deus Ex.

"Destro why would you bother taking a step back on your mod?". The explanation for that is simple, the vanilla release is Gore Mod Compatible, also some people just want to get back to basics. I'd like to thank DXVentura for all his hard work and effort on improving Deus Ex's dated and some what laughable blood and guts engine. Currently Gore Mod doesn't run with shifter or biomod, but the solution is in the works. In the mean time if you are dying to give the modern weapons pack a try with the Gore Mod. Please pay DXVentura a visit at and try the vanilla release when it is authorized. The man has worked hard and deserves a huge thanks and pat on the back. Unfortunatly some weapons may be bugged or a bit odd with the Vanilla DX release so bare with me, I will revamp everything when it is possible. I need to apologize for losing the tactical sniper rifle in this release.

If playing with Biomod is your cup of tea please stay tuned for the download file. All weapons in the biomod edition will function just like the Shifter version. Thanks for your support and any advice you guys have given in the past month.

Keep an eye on the download section folks.

Very important- I forgot to add the Deus Ex.ini for the 2 most recent releases. Go to your Deus Ex System directory and add the following under Edit packages.


This should solve the issue. A fix is being worked out for the vanilla mod's weapon glitch.

Okay so I just replicated this quite easily. ModernCombat.u is not in the system directory apparently. I did this by cutting the file to My Documents and running the game. I got the same error you did when the map liberty island failed to load. Placing the moderncombat.u file back into the system fixed this. So double check your system files.

Is edit packages a factor?

I think it only matters for Unreal Editor but for example in Deus Ex.ini


Not sure.

No way.. That gives the same issue. Go to DeusEx.ini and add ModernCombat to it by giving it an editpackages line.

Did a clean install from steam. Installed Modern Weapons, and installed the newest bio mod no issues.
