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.

  • I updated the weight of the guns to be more accurate. Thanks go to Gabester on moddb.com for noticing the discrepancy in the pistol weights. I went back and reviewed the weight of all the weapons and updated them. I then had to update all the properties that the weight of the gun affected: movement speed, recoil, etc. This also led me to notice some other discrepancies.
  • The weapon lengths have been changed in the game to be proportional to the actual weapon lengths. This lets you get closer to obstacles with shorter weapons.
  • So I’ve noticed some disturbing properties to the game. When you walk your accuracy increases tremendously, when you are crouched your accuracy remains the same, and when you use a laser sight your accuracy decreases a lot! This appears to be a mistake made by Ubisoft when they went from Vegas 1 to Vegas 2 because Vegas 1 doesn’t have this problem. I’ve fixed this so:
  • The walking modifier is now proportional to the gun length and weight. It is easier to maintain accuracy with shorter lighter weapons where as longer heavier weapons you are better off standing still.
  • The crouching modifier is now proportional to the gun length and weight. It is easier to maintain accuracy with all weapons when crouched but more so with longer heavier weapons.
  • The laser sight now gives you a small increase in accuracy.
  • I fixed the ACOG and rifle scope sighting problems! Now the ACOG is available on most submachine guns and all assault rifles, shotguns, and LMGs, and even some sniper rifles. The rifle scope is also available for most submachine guns and assault rifles and all LMG’s and shotguns. The sniper scope is an option for all assault rifles that don’t have the rifle scope option.
  • The ratings in the gun selection menu have been updated to reflect these changes.

Don't forget to check out my Vegas Realism mod for the original Rainbow Six: Vegas. I took my Vegas 2 Realism Mod and adapted it for the original, so now you can go back and play Vegas reborn! - Just click on my name IdeeasMan on the right of this page and then select the Mods tab under and to the right of my name and then Vegas Realism Mod.

Just downloaded it and tested a bit, and it made an impression,
it's the best realism mod for R6V2 now.
Now I can play some more Vegas 2 with my friends =D
keep up with the good work! ;)
