Description : Well, I (Xaser) juse love weapon replacements, and
after doing Necro's Revenge, Acid Dreams (Unfinished),
Sniper of Insanity, and Close-Up, I started to run

together and make a Masters of Insanity weapon Wad!"
So therefore, P0WER WEAP0NS was born. Well, see below

* Weapons *
1: SELF DEFENSE GUN
The Self Defense Gun is a wimpy pistol which should only be used as a last resort.
It has infinite ammo, though, so you might want to use it is you're an ammo saving
Graphics by Scuba Steve. Dehacked work by Taranis.
1: ATOMIC RAILGUN
The first of the two railguns, this baby uses negatively charged atoms to form
a laser burst that travels insanely fast. It deals pretty good damage, is
perfectly accurate, and can go through multiple enemies at one time. Overall,
a pretty good weapon.
Graphics from Skulltag (Recolored by Trinity). Dehacked work by Trinity.
2: COBRA 66 PISTOL
The Cobra 66 shoots a powerful, fast, and accurate shot at the enemy. It's
good for a first weapon, but is dwarfed by most of the other weapons.
Graphics from the internet (somewhere). Dehacked work by Xaser.
3: RIOT GUN
The Riot gun is sort of like a hyperactive auto shotgun on steroids. It shoots
shells pretty fast and has a huge ammo capacity. Use this alot.
Graphics from blau.wad (I think they were originally from Shadow Warrior).
Dehacked work by Xaser.
3: P0WER RIFLE
Just think of it this way: Automatic Double Barrel. ^_^
Graphics taken from some screenshot of an obscure game (I don't even know the name!)
Sprite Modifying and Dehacked work by Taranis (With a little touching up by Xaser).
The Pulsator's Dual Barrels use a special mechanism that moves the weapon in a
pulsating motion while firing to minimize weapon recoil. Did I also mention that
it's rapid fire mows down enemies like nobody's business? I thought so.
The graphics are actually from A Quake2 Mod called SOG (Some Old Games). The sprites
are taken from the "Quake 1 Nailgun" model.
Sprite "Creating" and Dehacked work by Xaser.
5: SPIKE LAUNCHER
The Spike launcher is a Deadly weapon that shoots a barrage of spikes at the enemy,
impaling them with massive force. However, that was the older model. The newer
Spike Launcher now shoots EXPLOSIVE Spikes. Heh. We didn't call this "P0WER WEAP0NS"
for nothing. :)
Graphics from Doom Raider. Dehacked work by Taranis.
6: ELECTROMAGNETIC DISCHARGER
The Electromagnetic Discharger combines Static Electricity with a Powerful
Electromagnet that sends out bursts of electricity at whatever poor
scumbag you set your sights on.
Gun Graphics From TICSONIC.WAD, Hand Graphics from Duke Nukem 3D (Pasted together
by Xaser). Dehacked work by Trinity.
7: ELECTROMAGNETIC RAILGUN
The Second of the 2 railguns, this gun uses electromagnets to accelerate
a particle which moves at blinding speed. It shoots much faster than the
Atomic Railgun, but it uses more ammo and doesn't go through the enemies
like the Atomic Railgun's shots do. Also, the particle is unstable and
it may be hard to aim. However, it's Extremely powerful, and is an awesome
weapon. Don't say I didn't warn you. ;)
Graphics from Skulltag. Dehacked work by Trinity.
