Chaos Deathmatch v1.11 Manual - Weapons Part 1
 

The Bastard Broadsword

Our first guest here is something for everyone who always wanted to play a little bit of "Conan" in a game like Quake2: It's The Bastard Broadsword! Your big disadvantage while using this little devil will be that you have to get very close to your opponent, without getting killed....but once you're close enough you'll be able to kill most enemies with a single swing! So don't think of the broadsword as a kind of  "Rambo" weapon....it's more for the thieves and sneakers amongst us who like to catch their unaware victims from behind! (But of course you can also use it in a fit of attempted suicide running down the hallway towards a rocket shooter....makes the whole thing even funnier.

Another feature: you now can do real swordfights with it. If an enemy swings with a sword at you and you are also currently holding one of these, he only has a very little chance to hit you. Most times you can manage to block his swing. But if you also attack at the same time, either of you has a fifty percent chance to hit the other. Of course, this only works if you are facing each other. Remember: your back is still unprotected!
Additionally you can try to block and reflect "slow" flying projectiles like a Buzzsaw blade, Hyperblaster shot or an arrow!

The Chainsaw

Like Slade from Telefragged already said: This "will bring back memories of  Texas Chainsaw Massacre." :) Looks like this baby will get the award for the most extreme close combat weapon seen in a Quake2 mod so far! Just use it like the broadsword....it's still very powerful, like the sword, but has some disadvantages. First you only cut in the direction you're facing (and not through your complete field of view like swinging the broadsword). And the second: Everyone hears when you walk around with a  running chainsaw ("pot-pot-pot-pot" :) so you may want to forget about sneak'n'hide tactics!

The Explosive Super Shotgun

Not a new weapon, but a funny enhancement of an old one: Just look out! This weapon,    and it's ammo, is spread sparsely through the levels, so use it wisely! Take the normal Shotgun-Shells and add explosive heads...voila! Very useful to burn campers out of their holes. I could start crying every time I see their confused faces when they realize that their dark hideout just became an exploding inferno! Try it! Like it!  BTW: Just a note for everyone who's wondering what happened to the old Shotgun. I made a little opinion poll and it looks like no one is really  using this weapon. So, due to the fact that we want to keep the whole item and weapon selection of chaos clear and not too overloaded, we just kicked it! Bye-bye! :)

The Ancient Crossbow

For those of you who want that 'Medieval' feeling in this high-tech game. Don't underestimate this little baby, 'cause about three shots, and your unprotected enemy gets nailed! Great to use in combination with the telezoom! Ever get those panic thoughts after hearing an arrow come from nowhere and crash right above your head into the wall?

The Poison Crossbow

The extra kick! Causes the same damage as the normal arrows, but if the opponent is hit, he also gets poisoned for about 5 seconds, making him an easier target!

The Explosive Crossbow

Like the name says, they're arrows with nice explosive heads. These boys are rare....and extremely valuable! Silent and mighty...

...the dream of every sniper! Imagine a projectile which is more dangerous than a rocket but flies slower and leaves no smoke trail. I'll bet everyone who likes shoot & hide tactics will love it! ;)
