The Special Ops mod aims to open up Blacklist to the player, giving you many new options for tactics and customization, while removing many of the handicaps that made the game easier and less rewarding. You'll find it's much harder for the player to control the battlefield and track enemies. A fully stealthy approach is even more difficult than before, and getting spotted can give you a quick end if you're unprepared. You'll have to use a much wider range of tactics to evade and eliminate hostiles rather than striking from the shadows over and over - preparation is key. Hostile guards are sharp and deadly, and enemy commandos are a force to be reckoned with.

There are more options available now than the original game ever offered - I've done my best to expand customization, balance weapons and gadgets to make everything useful. Many ops suits have been modified, optics have been modified, additional playable characters and suits are available and gameplay has been tuned and tweaked in countless areas.

This mod is intended to be played on the 'Realistic' difficulty level. Each difficulty level must be individually modified in the game files, and the only difficulty I modified was Realistic. The reason I did this was because when I started making the mod just for myself I used realistic, and it would be far too time consuming to go back and replicate the changes to the other difficulty levels.

In creating this mod I tried to honor the original Splinter Cell games (from Chaos Theory and before) the best I could. If you equip a fully stealth suit and try to "ghost" an entire mission, you'll have to use a lot of gadgets (such as the drone for surveillance and sticky cams) and have a lot of patience. However on the flip side, I also cater to the Rainbow Six types, because the game allows me to. As much as I love the original Splinter Cells, I also like to shoot terrorists, and shooting the place lone wolf style up is a very viable albeit equally difficult way to achieve victory.

There are hundreds of changes, but here's an overview:

Most weapons and gadgets are now viable. There is no clear "best" - everything has strengths and weaknesses. Assault Rifles, Shotguns and SMG's all have a different feel. Weapon attachments have more distinct and noticeable effects. The tazer and both crossbows are all unique from one another. Most gadgets have been modified in one way or another.

Difficulty: Enemies are tougher and more aware. They will spot you more quickly and are far more deadly than before. If you're face to face with an opponent, whoever shoots first may very well win. Crouching is also no longer a magical way of muting your footsteps - if you're creeping up behind someone, they may hear you. You better be on your toes ready to pounce (or have a gun pointed at their head) if they decide they heard something behind them.

Expanded customization: Choose from several different characters and additional ops suits. Merc suits, a spy suit, Briggs, Kestrel, Paladin Sam and the balaclava from Site F are all playable in the 4E missions. Make sure you check the included text files before trying to equip merc or spy suits in single player.

Much more, including modified camera angles, optics, and countless minor gameplay tweaks. The included changelog is more specific.

Be sure to look over the included text files; they are 'somewhat' important.


Although I'd like to be able to take requests and I've been able to fulfill many of them in the past, life has become extremely busy - much more so than when I first created the mod - and I won't be able to honor them. I hope you understand.

Armory

Feature


These are the complete stats for all the weapons, attachments and ops suits in the mod. As I've mentioned before, I can't change anything in the in game menus, including the weapon/ops suits names, and the stat display bars that accompany them. So I made this so you actually know what's going on with your gear, because the original stats weren't even that accurate to begin with. Now you know exactly what you're working with.

I've cataloged each and every weapon and armor stat in the game so you can configure your gear the way you want. Most of the numbers I've used come directly from the game files.

Does not apply

The stats in the armory screen no longer apply; I cannot change them, for accurate stats use the info on this page!

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


WEAPON ATTACHMENTS


A couple keywords for attachments:

Precision Range = Range at which the crosshair turns red. When the crosshair is red, a precise hit is almost assured.

Dispersion per shot: After every shot the weapon loses a bit of accuracy for a second. This is what causes the crosshair to get larger if you fire multiple shots consecutively. This is called dispersion per shot in the game files.

Dispersion recovery: How fast the crosshair returns to normal size.
___________________________________________________
---------------------------------------------------

Scope2
OPTICS

[HoloSight]
Greatly increases accuracy while moving.

[Red Dot]
Decreases maximum dispersion at the cost of precision accuracy. Great for CQC where rapid body shots are more effective than a precise head shot. Also increases accuracy while turning.

[ACOG Sight]
Weapon accuracy improved by 60%, precision range (range at which crosshair turns red) increased by 20% (change to 50% in new version). Takes longer to recover after shooting.

___________________________________________________
---------------------------------------------------

Rails
RAILS

[Laser Sight (SMG, Rifle)]
Improves weapon recovery speed after each shot.
Note that the pistol laser no longer gives any bonus; it's there for aesthetics only.

[Angled Foregrip]
Reduces upwards recoil by 40%.

___________________________________________________
---------------------------------------------------

Muzzle2
MUZZLE

[Pistol Silencer]
Reduces pistol damage by 30%.

[SMG/Rifle Silencer]
Reduces damage by 20%.

[Rifle MuzzleBrake]
Lowers dispersion per shot(crosshair gets larger more slowly during full auto firing)

[SMG MuzzleBrake]
Increases accuracy while moving, improves automatic fire accuracy.

___________________________________________________
---------------------------------------------------

Bullet
AMMO

[Match Grade Ammo(Pistol, SMG)]
Improves weapon accuracy by 10%, and the weapon has a 30% longer precision range (range at which the crosshair turns red)
{Designed for stealth missions where you need to land a headshot from a bit further away}

[Match Grade Ammo (Rifle)]
Precision range doubled
{Helps you land precision shots at range, but won't help you in close quarters.}

[HollowPoint Pistol Ammo]
Increases weapon damage by 30%, reduces precision range by 60%.
{Great for close quarters when precision shots aren't viable.}

[HollowPoint SMG Ammo]
Increases weapon damage by 20%, reduces precision range by 40%.
{Same as pistol hollowpoint, good for close quarters when you don't have time to line up a headshot.}

[AP Ammo (Pistol, SMG]
Increases weapon damage by 10%.

[AP Ammo (Rifle)]
Increases weapon damage by 15%.

___________________________________________________
---------------------------------------------------
INTERNAL

[Bolt Blueprinting]
Reduces dispersion per shot by 10% (crosshair doesn't get as large after each shot)

[Weight Balance]
Weapon is more accurate while turning.

[Match Grade Trigger]
Dispersion recovery reduced by 15%.

[Tuned Recoil Buffer]
Reduces upwards recoil by 10% and horizontal recoil by 25%

[Accurized Barrel]
Increases accuracy by 10%.

WEAPONS

These values are taken directly from the game files. I know these numbers are confusing, but I wanted to take the numbers directly from the game files so you know what you're dealing with. As far as accuracy is concerned, lower means more accurate. Moving and automatic accuracy are just modifiers of the stationary accuracy.

[Weapon]
Damage: Simple, how much damage the weapon does
Rate of Fire: How fast the weapon shoots. This is not an actual number related to RPM - it's just the number the game uses to determine how fast the gun shoots. Lower means faster.
Accuracy Rating
-Stationary: This is how accurate the weapon is when standing still. Again, the number doesn't have an actual meaning, it's just what the game uses to determine how precise the weapon is. A lower number means more accurate
-Moving: Add this number to the stationary accuracy to determine how accurate the weapon is while moving. Example: A weapon has 1.0 stationary accuracy and 1.5 moving accuracy. 1.0 + 1.5 = 2.5 accuracy while moving. Again, lower is better.
-Automatic (per shot): This is how accurate the weapon is using full auto. The weapon loses this much accuracy after each shot. You can see the crosshair get larger when you hold down the trigger. Lower is still better.

Damage values with (suppressed) next to them means the weapon is suppressed by default, and therefore has lower damage. To find the suppressed damage of regular weapons, take the damage and multiply it by .7 (for pistols) or .8 (for all weapons besides pistols).

Rifle
----------------- [ASSAULT RIFLES]-----------------

Assault rifles are different than any other weapon group because they actually do MORE damage the farther you are from the target. I did this to further differentiate them from SMGs, and give the player more of a reason to select a SMG over an AR for close quarters.

Remember, if you are using a Merc suit, you only need the Merc torso and the Upper Echelon Suit Gloves and boots. You can wear whatever pants you want.

Also, boots and gloves all have the same exact stats, they are nothing more than cosmetic. You can pick whichever one you like.

this doesn't open up options to the player, this limits them to the authors weird balance changes that essentially ruin the game's nature and makes it a simplistic shooter.

Thumbs all the way down.

Pretty much every weapon and suit is viable and stealth is much more difficult. As I mentioned a couple times, SC Blacklist wasn't a real Splinter Cell game and this mod isn't supposed to make it one.

If you check out the description you'll see a lot of the reasoning behind the decisions I made :)

Regarding the AI it was quite attentive so I had to rely extensively on slow walk as they can see from far away even while being crouched,noisemakers just to sneak past them and creating shadows using EMPs(in vanilla I neved had to used EMP at all) and the snipers are way too relentless it made me cry literally but as you said they provide an overwatch of an area so it's pretty normal.Coming to weapons,I now actually felt an difference among rifles,SMGs and pistols(I said this only on basis of the range they deal damage and the types of bullets so I don't know about the other stats).The changes in camera angles and optic visions(NVG and thermal) is quite appealing to me.
