Welcome to my mod. Since I've been playing Vegas 1 & 2 I've heard people complain that certain weapons in the game just aren't realistic. So I researched the weapons in the game and found... They were right! While I haven't adjusted characteristics like the steadiness (or lack thereof) of the weapons when being held or fired (yet, I just might later), I have changed just about everything else. WARNING!!! This mod increases the realism of the game, i.e. it is even more difficult. But since the game has been out for a while I thought people might be up for a little more of a challenge. I adjusted all the weapons to have characteristics closer to the real ones. Most weapons now have slightly better penetration. Weight and fire rate is also now proportional to the real weapon's. I took away unlimited pistol ammo. Movement speed is now proportional to the weapon's weight. Ammo carrying ability is also more realistic. Weapons feature realistic fire select options. Realistic silencers & more.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is one of the July 2016 Games of the Month on XBox. XBox Gold members can get it for free. So I've been playing it (along with a lot of other people out there too). Even in it's unmodded form, it's still one of my all time favorite games. But... I'm reminded of why I made the Vegas 2 Realism Mod in the first place. All the guns are very similar, iron sights are all way out of wack, accuracy issues, bugs, and just that the game lacks that polished feel. So I went back to my mod and I found a bug. I couldn't let that slide. So the Vegas 2 Realism Mod v2.4.3 Patch will fix the bug where some menus don't appear correctly. Hey, even if Vegas 2 doesn't have that polished feel, at least my mod can. Happy Gaming! -Also, don't forget you can play my mod online with your friends using Tunngle. Check out my previous article to learn more.

Loving the mod. Definitely deserved a good review.
I have encountered some issues though.
If I have armour on and pull out my pistol, I suddenly turn into Usain Bolt. Feels a bit weird, and I often have to stop myself from abusing it.
Sometimes I also have inconsistent speed when running with average armour and and smg.

I also agree that the shotguns are overpowered. They've been causing a lot of problems for me.

But all in all this mod is brilliant.

I'm going to be honest, the shotguns are completely overpowered. Realistically, most forms of armor (from the light level IIa to the heavy level III which are the levels I supose are on Vegas 2) can stop buckshot, however on the mod is one shot kill even on heavy armor. Buckshot also has poor penetration due to their shape and low velocity. Maybe making the shotguns use slugs, but I don't think is posible that change. The XM8 is actually the Malasyan version made for Malasyan Special Forces, despite not being acepted by the US. The bigger the accuracy number, the more inaccurate a weapon is, how the FAMAS is less accurate than the MP5 is beyond me, unless it is like the auto aim variable and the bullet spread is what adjusts accuracy. The X95 doesn't have 3 round burst as far as I know. Also, there is a subsonic round that the SR25 called .338 Whisper, which would be the same as your 7.62x51mm subsonic round, but with the proper name. It would take an armorer to chage the SR25 receivers and use the .338 Whisper round, but if they can make an USP40 be a USP .357, they can make that change. Also, there is no way to make the tangos not having unlimited reserve ammo?

Can you disable the infrared/night vision? I want to use the default helmet with the goggles down and not have to have the overlay visible. THX!

There used to be a bug that would do this, but it may have been taken out in the update. I do not have access to the part of the game that would let me make that change. Sorry.

This game is the most realistic tactical shooter ever made. Kevlar Vest and other protections help you out against a few bullets but you die very quickly...especially when you take a headshot after sneaking from a corner for example.Ennemies are incredibly precise and dangerous (and funny too :p ) This game lacks modern grafics, why do modders don't get more focused on this awesome game? With actual grafics it would be really awesome!

Unfortunately it looks like they did not want to make this game mod friendly. They used Unreal engine 2.something and it isn't supported by the modding software for Unreal 2 or 3 as far as I know or at least last time I checked. They also locked away a lot of content. It could have been to prevent cheating online, but there could have been easy ways to accommodate modding for online by making it a part of the host setup so only people with that mod could join that game. This game could have been HUGE if they had let people mod, with just content mods alone. Think of all the different weapons and gadgets there could have been, not to mention armor! And even better with a level editor. Could you imagine all the Multiplayer maps there could have been? I used to really like multiplayer in this game by the way, but shotguns were way too accurate and had way too much range. [Last time I checked snipers didn't use shotguns.] And sub-machine guns were way too powerful, almost as powerful as the rifles, which made them pretty much useless. And the order that you unlock weapons was flipping ridiculous. That's why I decided to create this mod.And modded levels for single player would be awesome as well. Just the first level alone would be so much better if there were alternate paths to the final destination. But sadly it will never happen. We can only hope that someday game creators will actually think of and listen to their fans.

I just added a version of my mod for PS3. Now I don't have a PS3 to test it out on, so I would appreciate feedback that anyone has to offer. I am also curious if you can play multiplayer online with my PS3 mod installed. Might make it worth getting a PS3 off Ebay or Amazon!

You should really consider making the enemies have less health. It honestly seems like they can kill me with shots to the chest easily with an M11, but when I use an MP5N it takes an entire magazine to kill someone

Unfortunately that part of the game I cannot mod. If they are killing you with a MAC11 then you either are not wearing any body armor, or they are shooting you in the head. That is one thing about this game that I will give the game makers credit for is that the enemies are pretty decent shots, where most games they couldn't hit you if you ran into their bullets!
I just uploaded version 2.4 of my mod. Check it out!
