Description : Weapon and gameplay modification with some lesser RPG aspects.
There are 20 character levels that are reachable. Each grants you more powerful melee,
a higher health maximum that you can regenerate to and more ammo. Some levels will grant improved weapons, as well.
Slot 1) Knife
Standard issue combat knife
Stealth Knife Secondary attack: Stealth field
Given to you at Level 4, secondary attack activates a short Partial Invisibility powerup. As you level up, it will improve, and at certain plateaus will give you a longer powerup.
Slot 2) Magnum Clipsize: 7 rounds
Standard issue pistol; quite powerful but small magazine capacity
Dual-wield Magnums Clipsize: 14 rounds
Upgrades over single; behaves as upgrade
Dual-wield Magnums, Extended magazine Clipsize 24 Rds.
Upgrades Dual-wield Magnums.
Slot 3) Tactical Machine Pistol Clipsize: 40 rounds
High rate of fire, low damage.
Dual-wielded Tactical Machine Pistols Clipsize: 80 rounds
upgrades over single, doubled rate of fire.
Slot 3) Riot Shotgun Clipsize: 8 rounds, secondary fire - Airburst Shell
Pump-action shotgun, quite powerful. Secondary attack fires a shrapnel
bomb that detonates in mid-air.
Automatic Shotgun Clipsize: 10 rounds
Less powerful than the pump shotgun, larger spray, much more damage over time,
though due to its higher rate of fire. Terrible at long range.
Automatic Shotgun, Extended Clip Clipsize: 20 rds.
Earned at level 15, upgrades Automatic Shotgun
Slot 4) Assault Rifle Clipsize 30 rounds, secondary fire Sniper Shot, Zoom
Good rate of fire, good damage. Has a zoom scope, and secondary fire will kill
all humanoids in a single shot
Flechette Rifle Clipsize 50 rounds, secondary fire - Grenade Launcher Clipsize 5 rounds
A little more powerful than the assault rifle, but fires overpenetrating projectiles
that explode on impact. Grenades are fired on an arch with a bit of bouncy goodness
Enhanced Flechette Rifle Clipsize 50 rds. Secondary fire - Shrapnel Grenade launcher
Secondary Clipsize 5 rds.
Earned at level 20, grants more powerful shots and the grenades unleash shrapnel in a circular pattern.
Upgrades Flechette Rifle
Slot 5) Rocket Launcher Secondary fire - Incendiary rocket
Primary fire is pretty standard stuff, although the rocket now travels much faster.
Secondary attack is a very powerful incendiary explosive that burns for several seconds
Slot 6) Minigun Secondary fire - higher rate of fire
Has two fire rates, normal (~600 RPM) and high (~1300 RPM).
Features wind-up and spin-down and the primary attack can be
re-initiated instantly on the spin-down (thanks Dartmerc!)
Slot 7) Flamethrower
It is what it is, it overpenetrates through enemies and does pretty serious damage,
but only at close range
Slot 8) Plasma Rifle Secondary fire - spread-shot
Fires volatile orbs of energy at a high fire rate or a spray of ten of them for secondary attack; all shots do splash damage.
Railgun Clipsize 15 rounds Secondary fire - EMP blast
The railgun fires three over-penetrating metal slugs per second that cause enough damage to kill most base monsters in one hit. The secondary attack taps into the plasma battery for a devastating EMP attack that will destroy or severely injure cybernetic opponents, but is completely useless against organic oponents.
