The goal of this mod was originally to make the weapons behave more realistically. Since then, the author has added other features that make the combat more realistic in general, including changes to the AI, mutants, and getting shot effects. He then later decided to replace all of Nimbles's guns with guns that are "Artifact Mods" instead; not because they are realistic (well, not anymore than an artifact itself anyway) but because they are a ton of fun.NOTE: THIS MOD IS INTENDED FOR MASTER DIFFICULTY. On lower difficulties it will be less realistic due to the player being able to take more damage from just about everything. Shooting in the open will get you killed fast.
