Description : I have always loved Action Doom's weapons.
Unfortunately, due to all the other dehackiness
of the wad, I was unable to use the weapons with
any other wad. I finally got so sick and tired
of that feeling that I started this: a port of
all of Action Doom's weapons in a form that
can be used on anything. Now, I finished the
darn thing. Some of these guns are the
same as the original ones, while others are
modified a bit. Of course, I added a few new ones,
as always, but they act quite a bit differently
than Action Doom's guns. Sure, this may seem like
a simple rip-off, but I had to painstakingly re-
create each and every one of these weapons by
hand. Anyway, I think that this weaponset is one
of the coolest I've ever made. I hope you
agree as well. :P
Also look for an update to Warzone in the future.
Additional Credits to : Scuba Steve!!! Almost all the weapons were based
off his guns for Action Doom, and he did all the
weapon graphics except for one weapon which uses
ripped Dark Forces graphics. The sounds are from
a variety of wads, mostly Daniel's Armas series
and his 99weap.zip. Thanks alot!!!
Special thanks to MasterOFDeath for Betatesting
and stuff! Heh. :P

* Weapons *
Action Doom's Knife with that cool motion blur. Yay!
2: ACTION PISTOL
A pistol that is actually powerful! It uses its own ammo type and can be a
dependable weapon to fall back to. Taken from Action Doom.
3: SPREAD GUN
A gun that shoots out a spread of 5 plasma shots that do a considerable amount
of damage. Use this alot. Taken from Action Doom.
4: HEAVY ASSAULT RIFLE
A fast weapon that rips through baddies quickly, but also does the same to ammo.
Taken from Action Doom.
5: MISSILE LAUNCHER
Ouch. This thing has an extremely wide explosion radius that can take out most
baddies in a couple of shots. It loses most of its effectiveness on boss enemies,
though. Taken from Action Doom.
Burn, baby, burn! This thing is powerful as hell, but doesn't shoot very far. :P
Taken from Action Doom.
7: BFG 8080 PROTOTYPE
Hell yes! It shoots out a bunch of deadly blasts that fly around, ripping apart
anything in its path. It uses its own ammo supply that is dropped by certain
bio-mechanical monsters. Taken from Action Doom (although the original didn't
do much of anything. :P).
8: PLASMA RAIN INDUCER
Fires a slightly-homing projectile that calls forth a deadly plasma rain storm
upon impact. Very useful indeed. Graphics from Dark Forces.
9: ENERGY GUN
Shoots out a beam of energy that melts baddies up close. It's not an Action
Doom weapon, but it still uses Scuba Steve's graphics.
