Look for anything else that ends in _X, too.
Misc. Author Info : I am hopelessy addicted to doom. I also like playing
the saxophone. Not really much else to say.
Description : This is a complete weapon conversion that changes
many weapons into sniper-like ones, most specifically
the sniper rifle and railgun. The behavior has been
altered quite a bit, and most guns are not at all
similar to their doom equivalents. For example, the
fast shooting chaingun has been replaced with a
gun resembling a rapid-fire shotgun, and the plasma
rifle now shoots alot slower, but the bullets do much
more damage than that of the original (plus new
graphics and sound). It may be fun in Single Player,
but this weapon set really shines in DM, with the
different styles of weapons merging different tactics
together. For example, one guy may sit with the sniper
rifle, waiting to pick off enemies from afar, while
another may enjoy close-combat battles with the
Spreadfire cannon. Well, I hope you have fun with this!

* New Weapons *
1-Knife- Yeah, Right. You Probably Have A Better Chance Tickling Them To Death.
1-Chainsaw- Still the same, only now you swing it, like the dude on Texas Chainsaw
Massacre, just like the Doomguy should have done int he first place.
2-Double Pistol- Double the pistols, Double the fun! Still kinda weak, but good for
a first weapon.
3-Sniper Rifle- Pick off baddies from afar with this baby, it's single bullet is more
powerful than a shotgun blast, and it can sometimes go right through an enemy into the
next one! Use this alot.
3-Railgun- Like a sniper rifle, only pumped up like a Muscle Man on steroids, only
without the dangerous side-effects. The best part is, the shot will keep going until
it hits a wall, no matter how many enemies are in the way! Very useful indeed.
4-Spreadfire Cannon- The UAC has taken a normal machinegun, and has enhanced it so that
several bullets are fired at one time! However, it now shoots a bit slower, but it's
still an awesome force to be reckoned with, especially in close-range battles.
5-Chainsaw Launcher- A standard UAC rocket launcher, only it's been modified to shoot
chainsaws! The chainsaws will slice through enemies until it hits a wall, but then it
breaks, so it can't be used again.
6-Plasma Type III- A new model of the UAC plasma rifle, it's much quieter, less blinding,
and the shots do more damage. However, the firing rate has been lowered a bit to reduce
the risk of overheating.
7-The Gun- Anything that gets even remotely close to one of these shots ends up like
fried chicken put in the deep-fryer too long (ie, burnt to a crisp). This gun is also
the easiest way in the game to kill yourself. Don't say I didn't warn you.
* WARNING *
If you play DM with a map with a BFG in it, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT put infinite ammo
on, as the dude who gets the BFG is virtually invulnerable unless he kills him/herself.
Failure to abide by these rules results in instant vaporization. You have been warned.
