Expert UT is a server-side mutator that attempts to focus the game more on "deep skills", and less on other techniques such as item-grabbing or chance-shooting. Actually the concept has been tested for years with Expert Q2, a cult mod that is still one of the best reasons to play Q2.

Basically, it balances the power of different UT weapons, reduces the damage so that no weapon will kill with only one shot, and removes powerups and spam weapons.

This means that to frag your enemy you have to engage him on a fast and furious combat, and be better at it than he is. Lame tactics such as camping the powerups, blind spamming or respawn killing won't take you far. And even if you are targeted by a aimbot, at least you can hit back...

All you need to do is to add the "Expert UT" mutator, along with any other mut you want. Or just join a server that runs Expert UT, you don't even need to have Expert installed to play it online.

To configure the mod, go to the mod menu, and choose the Expert UT item. You can choose between two pre-configured option sets (UT-Style and Q2-Style), or just save your custom settings.

Admin note: when setting up a Expert UT server, keep in mind that deaths are much less frequent that in regular DM, so you should set a low fraglimit, good values are between 15 and 20. Otherwise matches will last too long and casual visitors will leave the server.


  • No weapon will kill you with a single shot
  • Reduced ammo and damage for most weapons
  • No Powerups
  • No Redeemer, Ripper, GES-BioRifle
  • Sniper and Minigun can be disabled to discourage aimbots
  • The Rocket Launcher works in single-rocket mode and has a higher fire rate
  • You get all weapons and some armor at respawn

The Grapple
Expert UT also comes with a cordless grappling hook that can be used to climb walls and disembowel people. The grapple looks like the translocator, however it shoots a magnetic grapple that will embed in walls (and other players) and pull you to its location. Of course, it's an optional feature, and is disabled by default to prevent horrid CTF games.

To shoot the grapple just press fire, and release when you are on destination. You may use the grapple as a weapon too, a grapple hit makes the same damage of a Enforcer hit.

simple but brilliant. I give it a 9. If it had added some new feature to encourage skill it would get a 10. However, they just reorganized things.

A fairly simple concept, very well applied. A great mod after all...

Concentrating on skills is cool to show your skills. Skills are cool.
