Nah, EriGuns episode 3, based on the 3rd Episode of Demon Eclipse. :D

I've been testing this mod on some regular Doom 2 levels, but I've noticed something odd. Eriguns 1 features an auto shotgun, a chaingun, a double missile launcher and a grenade launcher, but the only way to aquire these is with the IDKFA cheat. They never spawn in vanilla maps.

For additional weapons to appear you have to select the Extended Weapon Set at the start of your game. Chaingun, but rather the Gatling Gun, is dropped by Spider Mastermind, and Missile Launcher is dropped by Cyberdemon.

But there's still two weapons left unobtainable without cheats, the auto shotgun and the grenade launcher.

I actually had selected the Extended weapon set, but I had not yet encountered any Cyberdemons or Spider Materminds during my tests. It seems that the mod does need a little adjustment though, if there are still weapons you can only get through cheating.

The auto shotgun and grenade launcher are just the result of me having some fun with Eriance's sprites. There was never any concrete plans to add them to the game for real (and the GL is unfinished anyway), so they're an easter egg, more or less.

I suppose I could do what Eriguns2 does and have some CVAR switches that swap out the SSG and RL with these, though it may be a while before I get back 'round to tinkering with the mod.

With the Eriguns0 idea I mentioned on the previous page, I was thinking the Cyberdemon could drop the Pyro Cannon or Devastator (another thing to decide through CVAR?), the Spider Mastermind could drop the Repeater, and finally the flamethrower could go to the Arch-vile. Even then I still think there'd be a few left over, but maybe some of the ones I'm thinking of weren't actually in DE at any point in its development, but made for Stronghold and/or UTNT.

Why is the mauler the chaingun instead of the nailgun?

After playing with some other mods, I decided to return and test out Eriguns2. I love the weapon designs, but I've noticed that the Hellforge and the Hydra are unobtainable without cheats. Perhaps these were just experimental as well, but the Hydra actually looks quite familiar. I've seen a custom enemy for Doom called a Behemoth which has arm cannons that look just like it.

If you ever get around to tweaking this mod, I would suggest completing and adding the unfinished weapons, but also creating a slightly altered "compatible" version of the Eriguns mods, where all the weapons spawn from pickup spawn points instead of being dropped by enemies. This would make the mods more compatible with monster mods, like Colourful Hell and DoomKrakken's Monster Randomiser, since monster mods often alter the vanilla enemies and eliminate any pickups that the Eriguns mods would make them drop.

Oops! Missed that. Thanks for the info.

I still think that a compatible version of both mods should be made, though. If you don't have to rely on monster drops for any of the new weapons, then it would make them more compatible with monster mods.

The weapon drops use a custom system, rather than the native "DropItem" functionality, precisely to make 'em work with mods that replace monsters. Give it a try.
