Description: A WAD for rebalancing the weapons in Doom. Primarily intended for DM, but could be used for single player or co-op as well.

The purpose of this rebalance is to shift the focus of the weapon balance away from single player and towards DM, and to reduce the difference in power between several of the weapons. Most importantly, this should reduce the effectiveness of mindlessly spamming the rocket launcher or plasma rifle.

Chainsaw: * Doubled the damage output to make it more useful. Should still be very hard to kill someone with, but at least it's more likely.

Pistol: * Increased rate of fire to make it slightly more useful.

Shotgun: * Decreased downtime between shots to make it less overshadowed by the Double Barrelled Shotgun.

Chaingun: * Increased rate of fire to keep weapon balanced with Pistol.

Rocket Launcher: * Increased the speed at which rockets fly through the air to make the speed of rockets seem more appropriate, and to eliminate the possibility of outrunning your own rockets. * Decreased the rate at which rockets could be fired to keep weapon balanced with previous change.

Plasma Rifle: * Reduced Maximum Cells to 150 (300 with Backpack) to reduce the length of time someone could use it before needing more ammo. * Increased the recharge time inbetween bursts of firing to increase the vulnerability of someone using the Plasma Rifle.

BFG9000: * Reduced Maximum Cells to 150 (300 with Backpack) to reduce the length of time someone could use it before needing more ammo. * Increased the number of cells used per shot to 50.
