Misc. Author Info : I really don't care about realism.
Description : Weapons changeout. Fewer guns than the original
4th release. Consider it kind of a greatest hits
collection. Also changed out some graphics, modified
some attacks and threw in alternate deaths for the Shotgunner,
Imp, Demon, Zombie and SS. And yes, they frickin' work. I've
tested that up and down.
Slot 1) Knife
Standard issue combat knife
Chainsaw. How it wound up on Mars is a complete mystery.
Slot 2) Magnum Clipsize: 12 rounds
Standard issue pistol; quite powerful but relatively small clip size.
Double Magnums Clipsize: 24 rounds, secondary fire - fire both guns at once
Double your gun, double your fun. Twice as many bullets to shoot off
and you can fire both at the same time for twice as much damage.
Slot 3) Riot Shotgun Clipsize: 8 rounds, secondary fire - slug
Standard military issue pump action shotgun. You can fire it is fast
as you can pull the trigger and pump (well, the pump isn't manual, but it's
quick). The slug is a more powerful single shot, but the round has to be chambered
first, so it takes a second or two to actually fire. Short range, obviously,
best used in tight confines on primary and at long range with secondary.
Semi-Automatic Shotgun Clipsize: 15 rounds
Less powerful than the pump shotgun, but has a larger magazine and you can shoot it faster.
Again, mostly useful in close combat
Slot 4) SMG Clipsize 30 rounds
Uses pistol ammunition and fires at a very high rate. This weapon is only dropped
by Wolfenstein SS guys.
Slot 5) Assault Rifle Clipsize 30 rounds
Starting weapon, standard issue automatic rifle. Not too powerful or too weak, high rate
of fire. Decent crowd control with weaker monsters at medium range.
Battle Rifle Clipsize 50 rounds, secondary fire - Grenade Launcher Clipsize 5 rounds
More powerful, larger clipsize AND higher rate of fire than the assault rifle.
This upgrades the assault rifle, so once you got it, it's the Battle Rifle or nothing. Grenades
are fired on arc and explode on impact.
Slot 6) Minigun secondary fire - higher rate of fire
Standard issue heavy machinegun. Has two rates of fire; high and blistering. You'll want to save it
for boss encounters because of damage limitations of small arms. When used on lesser opponents,
it'll clear a room within seconds.
Slot 7) Rocket Launcher secondary fire - Incendiary rocket
Primary fire is pretty standard stuff, although the rocket now travels twice as fast. Secondary is
far from standard, however. It'll burn for several seconds and will do massive damage. Very useful
on Hell Barons and anything beneath them, but a waste of ammo on a Cyberdemon or Spider Mastermind.
Slot 8) Flamethrower
Very useful for close proximity crowd control; but don't get too close or you'll cook yourself. Very,
very quickly, I might add.
Slot 9) Plasma Rifle
Different in more than just visuals. It's more powerful and the shot does splash damage on impact.
Not for close encounters, better used at medium to long range
