The following things are changed with the Grenade Weapons Patch installed:
Rocket Launcher -----> Hand Grenades. Work Very Nice. First you need
to find the Grenade Trigger. (a little box you
stick the grenades in to arm them) Then aim and
throw. Once thrown, they only last about 3-4
seconds before exploding. The little red light
on the grenade will 'turn on' about a half second
before the grenade goes off. enjoy :) You can
also "pummel" the enemies with them, although it's
more humerous then effective. I like watching
them jump and scream as it hits them even though
it hardly does any damage---I think it just scares
Plasma Gun -----> Pistol Crossbow. This weapon works very nicely.
Also, the crossbow bolt can be seen from all
angles. It looks neat when it sticks in
Barrels -----> Respawns!
Sargeants -----> Now you can blow their legs off with grenades! >:)
Sprites -----> About 25 new sprites.
Targets! -----> Crossbow targets (items 73 and 74)
E3M9 -----> Now a Target Range
DEMO1 -----> Demo of the Target range. Watch it!

no modifications. You may distribute this file in any electronic
format (BBS, Diskette, CD, etc) as long as you include this file
* For those of you who haven't seen the patch yet.... *
I suggest ALTDEATH on LEDGESI.WAD. You can stand up high on the top of the
tall elevator, and throw a grenade all the way across to the other side and
land it on another ledge. Very Cool. Another neat thing is to go get the
Blur Sphere, sneak up behind your buddy, and throw a grenade right next to
him while he is hiding. Then watch his guts crumble >:)
The grenade looks especially neat when you throw it up at an enemy and it
lands at his feet and blows up.
* Side Effects *
The following are side effects that I would be impressed if somebody could
1. There is no sound when the grenades explode. This would require a hack
into the main program.
2. The grenades just throw straight out unless your throwing up at a monster.
It would be neet if a hack to the program could make the grenades alway
launch upward a bit.
* Liability *
I am not responsible for anything. :)
I am not responsible for my grenade patch, my actions, etc...
