Spoiler:I am currently trying to give The Trooper a Zandronum-compatible version - if this interests you, the reader, follow either this link or this other, RDND-compatible link. The Zandronum versions are current to The Trooper 0.2, lacking zoom features and quick-melee.
The Trooper is a simpler, more relaxed project compared to Project Operation Unthinkable or Helsturm; it's not heavy on mechanics nor boasts a massive (theoretical) arsenal - it's just you and these ten guns, plus a knife and sword (which you can quick-melee with using User1 and User2, respectively):
Surfeit Torment - A powerful explosive revolver originally belonging to Unthinkable's Sergei, this thing puts down most weaker enemies in one or two shots. If you're not willing to get too close to the explosive death, altfire launches a highly accurate spread-shot. A copy of the gun exists, somewhere...and if you find it, can be dual-wielded via the Zoom function.Complete - it does almost everything!
Avtomat Sokova, model of 1946 - Lightweight, cheap, and durable, the AS-46 is a reliable workhorse weapon, suitable for most enemy types. It can also fire a highly explosive grenade. Complete, ready to lock and load!
Pulsar-D - A burst-fire weapon chambered in the heavier 6x60mm Hildebrand round, the Pulsar-D takes out enemies with greater range and precision than the AS-46. Paced bursts are ideal; rapid firing can mute the advantages of using this burst rifle. Can be aimed using the Zoom key. Complete, ready for field issue!
Gehiron M83 GPMG - A general-purpose machine gun chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, the M83 has a reputation for both high accuracy and recoil force. It can also load armor-piercing ammunition. Complete - don't have too much fun!
Sturmman M97 - One of few in its class, the M97 is a double-barreled automatic shotgun...that is, ridiculously powerful and nearly impossible to control. Still, it offers unrivaled damage output at close range, making this a monster you'll be coming back to often. It can fire slugs as well as shells. Complete - help, it knocked me over and I can't get up!
KSR VSK7 Nightshade - A versatile, semi-automatic shotgun with considerable stopping power, superior handling, and a tight spread. Can be used to fire explosive shells. Complete, already spent all of my shells in testing.
UAC Prototype Model 302 "Last Salvo" Handheld Explosive Railgun - Exactly what it says on the tin, this weapon fires a massive explosive slug at incredible speed, carving a bloody pathway between you and your target. Can fire perforated slugs that spread after firing. Complete, just don't fire at close range, it WILL kill you.
Lost Guardian DGA-3 - A prototype design, this directed energy weapon fires seven powerful beams in quick succession. Best used at close to medium range, as the beams lose coherence at longer ranges. With the right battery, it can be configured to fire single beams that maintain coherence much more properly... Complete, does need a new muzzle flash, though.
Aries Sharpshooter Prosthesis - The literal arm of an alien machine, this powerful beam rifle deals massive damage at any range. Kicks like a bionic mule. Can be scoped-in with the Zoom key. Complete, could do with a more effective explosive radius...or a smaller explosion.
Crimson Spectre - A massive antimatter cannon with no apparent function or purpose other than pure, unadulterated destruction. IFF tags of unknown manufacture prevent this beast from vaporizing its wielder via collateral damage from its main blast, though the leftover bursts of matter annihilation can't be good for you. I wouldn't fire this thing while standing on any sort of narrow platform, if I were you. It can also turn its antimatter cores into shootable mines - just remember that the mines don't care if you're friendly. Complete - that humming sound it makes, that's completely normal.
Extra weapons - sometimes you need a little more gun:
