For some reason sprinting doesn't make your character move faster, pretty frustrating for getting past crusher hallways in some levels (like in MAP02 of Plutonia), also there's a minor graphical glitch with grabbing on a ledge whilst sprinting, otherwise great work as usual!

Congrats on the release. I have one question to ask. I remember seeing a pipe-bomb weapon that could change modes. Is this still in the game?

Yep! The pipe bomb is one of four grenade types
To select it, press the Swap Grenades key at any time, or press dual wield while grenades are selected

Nuke definitely needs a rework
It only spawns in the test level and some mapsets, but I plan on also having it avaliable as a bfg spawn in the Addons section

Compared to the latest version of Dox's addon, (which I already loved and was my go-to addon) I love the changes. (though I kinda wish sprinting was toggleable just because when using the 'Ultimate Doom Visor' HUD mod with this, sprinting does nothing but make the screen bob more) I don't know why, but my favorite thing so far is the tweaked Rifle. I just love how it looks compared to the usual sprite (which I've seen used countless times) and I REALLY love the reload animations for some reason. So from what I played, this may be my go-to addon whenever I feel like playing BD!

Also THANK YOU for keeping the secret reloading animations :P

Haven't seen much of the code from the inside, but just asking here for future reference: Are there any plans to port over the headshot / limbshot system over to ZScript? iirc the old Decorate implementation was quite the resource hog on mapsets with more than 400 monsters, given that the headshot / limbshot targets hitboxes were actors, that spawned alongside each and every single enemy in a level.

That's one of my main priorities next to a zscript port of brutalweapon
I actually have another mod that has zscript headshots, it just takes some time to port it over

When that happens, some weapons will also have better headshot bonuses than others (pistol, smg, mp40, rifle, railgun)

Nice! Looking forward to that then! I always wanted to play around Brutal Doom and it's mechanics without the resource intensiveness, so this is definitely a plus so far.

As for the different headshot bonuses: That sounds really neat, actually. Perhaps "higher caliber" guns can deal the most headshot damage, and even have a chance of blowing the monster's heads up? Though, completely your call, just throwing a few ideas here :P

So tried sunlust out with this, great mapset, but it breaks the sprites in this mod. i reported this and it was sort of a mystery, but sunlust includes a full sprite set of doom monsters and other doom wad content things for whatever reason.

Just thought of a feature request: Could there be text that appears to let you know what grenade you selected? (ie you press Switch Grenade and you get a message in the center saying "Cryo Grenade Selected") The reason is this would help for people that like using custom HUDs like the Visor mods, HXRTC Hud, etc. Currently you can use them, but its impossible to know what grenade you have without throwing them, and I imagine this would be a lot easier than having each HUD author or other modders add support for the grenade types.

Good point, I'll go ahead and add that
