This little mod changes the handgun to seem more "realisitic". It's a good simple little mod, just right for you when you think the handgun needs a little more power ;)
Following the assumption that army issue handguns in the far future might be more comparable to high calibre weapons along the lines of the modern Desert Eagle as opposed to the unerpowered, generic 9mm type weapon we see in the Vanilla Doom 3 game I have decided to modify the weapon myself. The .PK4 file i have included should be put in your Doom 3/Base/ Directory. Then simply play the game to see the changes. If you want it gone, delete it. That simple There are new sounds, which make the gun sound more powerful and give it that extra bit of UMPH. Additionally, the refire rate is slower (but still much faster than the shotgun, so as to avoid making the other weapons obsolete) It does much more damage than the original now, and it will actually knock the target back a good distance. In short, it has some serious stopping power, and more importantly, it FEELS like a powerful weapon. It is still not something you want to take on a Hell Knight with, but basic zombies should go down VERY quickly, especially if you aim for the head. Hopefully this mod will give the people who thought the pistol was very wimpy something more to play around with. Keep in mind that it now only caries 8 bullets to realistically account for the larger calibre of the ammunition. Enjoy!
