Deadly Weapon Tweaks


Makes the weapons more deadly and realistic.

After I started playing I was quite disappointed by the weapons. The bullets seemed too slow and did little damage. With this mod guns are actually dangerous. For example:
  • The damage of all firearms has been boosted. For example, the assault rifle does 16 damage. The LMG, does more damage and is really deadly, but has a lengthy cooldown time.
  • All weapons are way more accurate at close ranges, what's up with close/touch range inaccuracy in vanilla anyway..? Long weapons like rifles are not as accurate at close ranges but are way more accurate than pistols at long ranges and vise Versa.
  • All bullets/projectiles fly a lot faster now. And most automatic weapons have a higher rate of fire. At the same time, some(Like the heavy SMG) have lower.
  • The Shotgun is a lot more effective at CQC, instead of firing one projectile, it now fires 10 projectiles, each dealing 6 damage, but has a relatively short range.
  • Explosions are really deadly now. Rockets dealing 40 damage, grenades 50.
  • Neotholic weaponry was nerfed, does less damage and lower range.
  • Melee weapons are not touched.
  • Other changes.
Using cover is crucial when using this mod. Most firearms have one shot KO/Kill potential when hitting crucial organs, snipers are especially deadly.

Keep in mind that this mod is focused on realism and it may not be balanced. If you find any illogical values, report them in the mod comments.
