<b>The Name Game</b>
UWar isn't exactly a mutator about war, rather it's about powerups. The name might be deceiving, but it doesn't really matter. What does matter is that UWar is a fun and addictive mutator.

<b>Letter Wars</b>
The concept of UWar is quite simple. You must pick up letters left behind by the people who have been killed. These letters (M,V,S,Q) each boost some aspect of your character. M (might) boosts your character's damage dealing power, S (shield) boosts your character's defense, Q (quicken) boosts your character's speed, and finally V (vitality) gives your character a certain amount of health every few seconds.

UWar is one of the few mutators that add a lot of depth to Unreal Tournament. The bots play well and almost always pick up the letters left behind by dead people. It is quire rare to see a bot not pick up a letter, which is quite amazing. Given it's small size, UWar is a worthy download that will add a whole new level of depth to Unreal Tournament.
