UPDATE: Added an assault rifle that the zombie guys randomly drop. In order to keep things balanced, they're now a little better at shooting rifles.
UPDATE 10/7/2013: Smoke effects have been added, the shotgun and rifle can be zoomed in for better accuracy, and I've tried to add a laser sight on the zoomed in rifle, but it's so buggy that I may end up taking it out.

Spoiler: ORIGINAL POST
I know the number of weapon mods using the exact same, run-o-the-mill resources is on the higher side, and I'm not claiming to unleash anything groundbreaking with this small project. If I've violated anything, someone let me know so I can make it right.
I started out by combining sprites, sounds and code from wads like Beautiful Doom, Brutal Doom, Realm667 and a handful of Weasel's mods (as well as some coding from Ed the Bat), and while some aspects are almost verbatim to the source material, I've hopefully added enough tweaks, bends and breaks to make something new that you might have fun with. My goal was to give a little more punch to vanilla style gameplay. Nothing massive, just an edge. I've spent countless hours refining everything to keep the sight, sound and gameplay as balanced as possible. So if any part of this could be improved, let me know.
