    is this possible, the weapon and the projectile probably are, but the animation of the characters and the head explosion?

    i know with the sniper rifle the head also explodes, but i also need the stunning effect. so that the player cant move for 3 seconds and his view will stutter and blood.

    is this possible? my coding skills is very very low, im more a copy paste coder.

    Yes, it is possible for what you anticipated (the weapon and projectile), but the stunning effect is a little trickier.

    Back in the original UT, the player models all had a "jitter"/electrified animation (if I recall correctly, player when they were hit by the pulse gun's beam). I'm not familiar enough with the UT3 player animation set to know if they have a similar animation available to use. You can force the player, hit with the cerebral bore projectile, to a stop by setting their groundspeed to something near zero (pawn.groundspeed = 1.0 etc.), and if the 'shakeview' function is available in the PlayerController that could be called to jitter the player's view around. I wish I could help you more but I only really spend my time with UT2k4 these days.
