Been looking for some weapons that are a little more unorthodox compared to the number of contemporary options available out there?
Look no further.
>>>>>GRAB IT HERE ON MY ITCH.IO PAGE<<<<<
Thanks to HyperUltra64 for providing the excellent art used on the magazine cover!
(Thank you Skelegant for the lovely boxarts used here!)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WILL ONLY WORK ON THE NEWEST 3.0 VERSIONS OF ZANDRONUM.
GZDoom works as well!
Glad you asked, in the coming updates I'll be adding more weaponsets and crate weapons, hopefully a few other surprises as well!
(If you want to send me a little support for this, I got a paypal.me and a Ko-fi. I'm not gonna twist your arm over this though. These updates are coming regardless, this'll just help keep my sorry ass fed.)
+Fixed a weird bug where playing on Zandronum would make your air control worse, this was due to a custom air control ACS script interfering with how Zandy does air control. This DOES mean air control is different between GZDoom and Zandronum, but that's how it'd be in "vanilla" between the two engines.
=Altered how certain weapons are undroppable, using +INVENTORY.UNTOSSABLE, this doesn't really effect you as the player but it cleans things up on my end for code and stuff.
=tweaked a few decals so they look better in Zandronum
+Made the projectile of the secret attack pass through players
+Sharpshooter rivets properly pass through players now
+Fixed a typo in the Scavenger laser pulse for the Vulture SMG, this was causing an error in jump states
+Fixed a severe oversight that let the hitscan attack of the Cyclops Cannon hurt teammates
=Renamed the class name to Artificer proper for Zandronum online
=Fixed an infinite loop warning for the rebounding rivets from the sharpshooter when playing on Zandronum online
=Hopefully fixed an issue of the Blackjack and Cobalt Mace not reacting when hitting monsters and walls when playing on Zandronum online
=Slightly changed the name of the projectile for the secret attack
=Slighty adjusted the timings on the hitsparks for the Whiplash so it doesn't play the hit and miss animations at the same time in Zandronum online
-Made the Zoom in/Out animation of the Cyclops cannon one tic longer, hopefully this helps with the weird flickering when using the zoom on Zandronum online.
+Fixed an oversight where the Ranger grenades wouldn't pass through players
+Made hot Defiance casings pass through players
+The flames that fly out from the secret attack's bomb no longer hurt players, fixing a team damage issue, the explosion can still hurt the player who launched the bomb though
=Fixed an oversight where some weapons could be fired while overheated during the equip animation
=Fixed an infinite loop warning with the Defiance Machine Gun's Casings
+Kame Bombs now have +MOVEWITHSECTOR when they're armed, so they should follow elevators
+Shortened the lock up time if you run out of ammo while shooting the Moon Beam
+Shortened the lock up time if you run out of ammo while shooting the Pearl Laser
=Fixed a small glitch with Kame bombs touching the sky when exploding, if this happened it'd fall to the ground unscathed and un-exploded.
=Fixed a bug where you could light Mini Artis on fire with the Leech Fire magic
=Fixed a bug where it'd print fire boomerang and peril beam pickup messages before you hit those tiers of upgrades when playing Zandronum online
=Fixed an infinite loop warning with the big casing ejected from the .100% tactical pistol
-Pocket Revenants now equip slightly slower, this is done as a compromise for Zandronum online to prevent other Revenant types to be a normal Revenant for a few frames as it raises up. This sucks.
+Fixed the vanilla berserk heal CVAR not working properly on the other classes besides the default, whoops
+Fixed Crate weapons not being taken away when pistol start CVAR is enabeled
=Added more lore stuff for the weapons inside the files
=Fixed a sprite name conflict with Rampancy's robot shrapnel and Artificer's Cyclops Cannon
==BLASTMASTER Mk 2==
=Fixed a small issue with Blastmaster's Fission Sweeper not alerting monsters
+Fixed Tech Monk weapons not being taken away while the pistol start CVAR is enabled
+Moon beam combos now have a much bigger window, making it easier to chain attacks
+Striker Beam now charges faster
+Striker Beam lasts longer, about an extra 6 seconds or so
+Emergency attacks from the Striker Beam when out of energy now drain more meter, meaning you can return to the fight even faster if you're aggressive
=Swapped out the firing sound for the Pearl Laser, hopefully making it feel punchier
-Augmented Hand Beam shots are now weaker
+Fixed a really busted glitch where putting candles flames on a somaria block and then detonating it with the wave magic causes an near endless loop of magic flying everywhere. Cool, but too strong, sorry guys
+Arti dupes are now more aggressive, with a higher fire rate
-Arti dupe sword beams are a little weaker now
=Updated the Miscreant sprites to use separate spinny cube sprites, so if you play a WAD that replaces those cubes, there shouldn't be any problems
+Arti now has a HUD face! Get a rough idea of how he's doing with just a glance at his mug!
+Arti now has unique player sounds! (Still has the classic HEH HEEENNNHHH for his taunt)
+Updated glow frames for the skull keys (thanks Skelegant)
+Tweaked the all map pickup sound to be less harsh at the end
+Arti properly has infinite air time now
+New customization screen: the pistol start CVAR is here now, along with a DAKKA style option (Reset your ammo, keep your weapons!)
+add a crate contents CVAR, now you can choose what exactly you get out of crates!
+Some weapons have fancy brightmaps
+There's now a visible meter timer for the rad boots
=Changed up the fullscreen HUD to be similar to the standard HUD, just with forcescaled
!CRATE WEAPONS NO LONGER HAVE INFINITE RELOADS. In fact, they don't even reload anymore! They now use a new resource: Crate Energy packs, which can be found near any cell based pickups. Infinite reloads and crate curse sucked anyway.
+Plakanomicon buffed, primary fire is now always a wall cast, secondary now opens a portal to the brick dimension
+Particle Smasher buffed, primary fire is now similar to a vanilla BFG, secondary fire is now a beam that detonates immediately, good for sniping Cyberdemons
+Pocket Revenants buffed, primary fire now always throws them, secondary deploys a rally flag to summon any active Skellies to the point, added more variants in the box (they all behave the same)
+Icarus Launcher buffed, primary fire shoots faster, rockets now home in and bounce off walls, secondary's rocket spread gun now bounces off walls too, improved firing sounds
+.100% Tactical Pistol buffed, primary's fuller auto is now hitscan, secondary is now hitscan
+Crates no longer give you duplicate weapons (I can't promise the next weapon you get after that won't be a weapon you just had though)
=Crates no longer can be shot open, you now open them by walking into them like any other weapon
!OVERHAULED THE ENTIRE SET. Nearly everything has either been polished, improved or just flat out replaced
+Berserk upgrade is now a heavy hitting mace
+Lilk's Axe now has lifesteal when using power attacks
+Whiplash's primary fire is now hitscan
=Set has been renamed to Artificer

-Sharpshooter caltrops produce less shrapnel when detonated with the altfire
==BLASTMASTER Mk 2==
!MOST WEAPONS GOT A NEW PAINT JOB. Everything now has more vibrant colors, helps make each weapon look more distinct!
!ICE BEAM OVERHAULED. It's now a constant beam of freezing energy, drains fast, recharges fast
!VENT ATTACKS OVERHAULED. Old awkward system of one shot -> scatter shot -> exploding shot refined into flamethrower -> machine gun -> exploding shot
+Improved heat gauge feedback, meter now easier to read, includes pips and audio feedback to tell you how hot you're running
=Heat gauge now cools off passively differently. After a five second delay heat starts to decay, growing faster over time
+Added the Tech Monk set
+Added the Past Linked set
+reduced blood particle spawns so hopefully it's less framerate destroying now
+Fixed Revenants not dropping bones and a skull when gibbed, whoops
+Revenants need to be closer to have a check for rage
+Mini Revenants no longer rage
+Lingering Mancubi fires damage slower
+Lingering Mancubi fireballs burst against walls instead of bounce off them
+Close range Imp fireballs travel slower, no longer arc upwards on initial throw and no longer bounce off walls
+Close range Hell Noble fireballs travel slower, no longer arc upwards on initial throw and no longer bounce off walls
+hitscanning enemies can now fire grenades from their weapons
+Fixed cacodemons not making their death rattles when they die (whoops)
+Archviles have a new attack, they can now summon Miscreants, horrible cube monsters heavily inspired by the Putti from Hideous Destructor
+Arachnotrons have an additional new attack, a powerful explosive charge shot, don't get shot by this
+all monsters have a few special death animations when killed with specific weapons from Combined_Arms
=all former humans have slightly louder idle sounds

=Revenants and Lost Souls don't leave blood decals on the walls now
=Renamed to Malefactors
=Altered the death rattle for the Archies, readded the vanilla scream into it
=Altered how deflated Cacos fall, should properly hit things like trees and lamp posts now rather than just getting stuck mid-frame
=Fiddled with a few offsets of the former humans so they look a little better when attacking
=Cacodemon charge shot replaced with a string of smaller projectiles that weave like Bishop shots
=Pinky demons now only have +THRUSPECIES when dashing, reduces the odds for them getting stuck in stuff
=Arachnotrons have a new charge shot, now they fire a burst of twin plasma bolts, don't get shot by this either
