About This File

Hello, this is my first mod. Please don't bite.

This is really a simple mod. Two of the biggest complaints I've had with Hexen is that A: the classes don't feel like actual people or characters, and B: for having so few weapons, none of them feel very fun to use. The game quickly became tedious. So, because I really wanted to play Hexen, I decided to make a new class. Enter Terry Holtzer the Ranger, a gunslinger woodsman with a snarky attitude. While many would disparage an inclusion of guns in Hexen, and for very good reason, I tried my best to make the guns have an archaic or medieval feel to them. There's no rapid-fire gatling rockets, no BFG energy weapons that spray ion proton neutrons or other science stuff, it's strictly early black powder, kinetic energy, a lot of historical inaccuracy, and a little magic.

Hopefully it works, and hopefully this helps other people to enjoy the underrated game that is Hexen. Thank you very much for your time. Please, have fun.

A huge part of Hexen is the grim, bleak atmosphere, and I understand if this complaint is common and perhaps whiny; but the wisecracking animu-ness of the Ranger really doesn't fit at all in Hexen, he comes off as more annoying than badass. While gameplay-wise it isn't that bad (the caltrop flechette is genius) I really can't recommend this simply because of how out of place the character feels.

Very good. Just seems a bit out of place and it was a bit confusing on how to work the GodCannon.

its totally unfitting in hexen's dark gameplay, if you want to do modding then go for doom and get out of hexen.

Not bad at all. It's an enjoyable mod that almost feels like the beginning to an official addon. It fits well, except for the Duke Nukem Pistol hybrid sprite. He also doesn't feel medevil enough. Maybe some plate armor for his chest and a helm that doesn't show his face, and he'd fit right into the Hexen world. 4/5 for such a fresh idea, we need more class mods!

I like the player sprite and new weapons(except the HUD works like ammo instructors for ZDooM one), and it looks and plays so cool and fun, even it's a little weird to fit the Hexen world, but whatever, nice try, I would like see make a Hexen mapset for this new class if possible... :\ 3.5/5 -playerlin

It's not the first attempt at incorporating guns in Hexen. Wolfen comes to mind. Nice idea, actually, if somewhat hard to pull off.

It's a good weapon mod for Hexen, I promose! The GodCannon is worth the download alone --75

The weapons and the character feels wildly out of place with the Hexen universe. That being said, the animations and quality of the sprites are above and beyond other mods. One major gripe that I have is that I couldn't get weapon 4 to work. 3/5 -FoH

Meh. Dosen't fit Hexen, and there is no attempt to make it fit Hexen, which is very possible although that is not what we have here.

0 stars, this doesn't fit in Hexen. The author should retire from Hexen modding.

People who play Hexen can generally be divided into those who like it for what it is, despite its flaws, and those who find it lacking and wish it was something more (or at least something else). Those in the second camp might appreciate this, but those like me who actually enjoy Hexen probably won't. It feels pretty out of place, and not very balanced. But if Hexen bores you then give it a try. --plums

Makes BORING HEXEN far more enjoyable, I just can't get over how satisfying the claw weapon is. It makes me feel like Shin. 6/5

This mod makes me want to play HeXen once again... Don't be fooled by the above, IDGames is choked full of these - they serve no purpose on Earth, yet they allow themselves to condemn without understanding a bit. Good stuff - 4/5 -- rsl

for a first release, this is pretty good. there's not a lot of hexen weaponsets and even less char classes, so this covers both. it's still the same typical shotgun/pistol/rapid -fire weapons, though, and you can't change your skin gender or color. 4/5

This is pretty much the best HeXen mod I've seen before.

      Awesome megawad. Great gameplay and visuals. New monsters... super coherent. Cheers :)

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.

      Conceptually a pretty cool map, have a nice retextures of wall using the ice floor, giving more context to the main theme of icy cavern present here, the layout is good, some room design are pretty good for the age it was done (especially the starting area) but it's unfortunately ruined by two things: excessive slippery floors and a no exit lava pit, as well as the random nature of switches placement that activates something... somewhere. Where is not given to you to known, the same things happens for a secret (mandatory) corridors areas that connect the said grave. But despite this, is not that bad, actually!

      Meh, conceptually is not a bad map but in reality is really boring. Lots of squares and platforms, lacks of powerful guns and a boring gameplay. Also how the exit can be activated? The teleports are shitty as well.

      Not a bad DM map, have a nice layout with many height variation but no textures variations unluckily, even the end is set on a random unmarked wall that is not even in the exit room. Gameplay is pretty neat, i like it even playing with the bots.
