    You are going against someone in a one-on-one DM match. The map is Deck 17. Standard item placement, except there are no guns or ammo whatsoever on the map. No translocator

    Instead, you'll choose from and spawn with one of three classic weapons from 3 separate, famous weapon packs.

    One from UT2004 itself. The Shock Rifle.

    One from Ballistic Weapons. The M50 Assault Rifle.

    One from U4E. The BFG.

    You will get unlimited ammo for the weapon you choose. Although, once you choose a weapon, that's the weapon you will have for the entire match. The M50 will not have any recoil from firing or aim shifting from walking or running, and the goal score will be to 15.

    So, the question is, which weapon will you take with you?
    I think I know what most people are going to say as a knee-jerk response. The BFG of course!

    Heh, but the BFG has some major disadvantages though. I'll just list the pros and cons of each weapon.


    - Primary fire homes in really nice especially when the opponent is in an open area.
    - Secondary fire, if it even comes near the opponent, is pretty much a guaranteed frag.

    - Shots are perhaps too easy for the opponent to avoid past a certain range.
    - Easy to suicide with the secondary fire.

    M50 Assault Rifle

    - Primary fire on full auto is nasty at pretty much all ranges.
    - Secondary fire is great for weeding out enemies from certain spots or as a good finisher.
    - A camera can be placed to watch areas.

    - Reloading.
    - Your aim will shift out of focus for every time you are hit.
    - That camera can be destroyed VERY easily.

    Shock Rifle

    - Shock taping.
    - Shock combos.
    - Ball spam.

    - As compared to the two other weapons in this competition, the primary fire and secondary fire separately for this gun may be rather weak in comparison.
    - You have to know what you're doing with this gun or you'll be eaten. Plain and simple.
