FlockGun - A mutator for Unreal Tournament 2003 =============================================== Author: Jeff Wofford Date: November 8, 2002 Ver: 1.0 url: http://www.jeffwofford.com/flockgun.html email: firstname.lastname@example.org This software is (C) Copyright 2002 Jeff Wofford.

FlockGun ======== The FlockGun is a mutator for Unreal Tournament 2003 which makes the LinkGun rather more interesting. The fire button shoots out LinkGun energy projectiles, but instead of travelling in a straight path, they behave like ravening birds. I've incorporated flocking AI into the projectiles. The result is a sight to behold. Installation ============ 1) Unzip FlockGun.zip to your UT2003/System directory. 2) Run UT2003. 3) When setting up a multiplayer or instant action game, switch to the "Mutators" tab and add the "Flock Gun" to the list of enabled mutators. 4) Play! Any LinkGun pickup in existing maps will be converted to a FlockGun pickup when this mutator is enabled. Tips and Strategies =================== The alt fire sends out a "tracking beam" which the flock is attracted to. It also gives the flock a speed boost. The strategy here is: shoot out several projectiles, get a nice flock going, then send them racing toward your victim with the tracking beam. Flock projectiles are green when they are not attacking you, and yellow when they are. Your own projectiles may even turn on you if they get bored. Don't fire your FlockGun while you're alone! When a player dies, his flock dies. When an enemy flock is coming your way, you can either run, go invisible, or kill their creator. There's no other way of getting rid of the enemy projectiles. Running isn't a bad idea, actually - you can just outrun the flock unless they are actually being "targetted" at you. Notes ===== The UT2003 console command "loaded" is ordinarily used to give the player every weapon and full ammo. However, when the FlockGun mutator is enabled, loaded will *NOT* give you a FlockGun, but a bog standard old LinkGun. You must find a FlockGun pickup to obtain a FlockGun. If you have both a LinkGun and a FlockGun, you can swap between them by hitting the "5" key repeatedly.
