Jump to navigation Jump to search
  • WEAPON.NOAUTOFIRE
Does not fire when selected automatically and the fire button is still pressed. Used to prevent dangerous weapons from firing accidentally.
  • WEAPON.READYSNDHALF
The ready sound is played only with 50% probability.
  • WEAPON.DONTBOB
The weapon sprite does not bob.
  • WEAPON.AXEBLOOD
This weapon spawns the special AxeBlood type when hitting something that bleeds. This only has an effect for hitscan and melee weapons.
  • WEAPON.NOALERT
Does not alert nearby monsters when being fired.
  • WEAPON.AMMO_OPTIONAL
Tells the engine that this weapon doesn't require ammo to work.
  • WEAPON.ALT_AMMO_OPTIONAL
The same for the alternate attack.
  • WEAPON.AMMO_CHECKBOTH
The weapon can be selected if either the primary or the alternate fire have enough ammo. Both weapon properties Weapon.AmmoUse1 and Weapon.AmmoUse2 must have a positive value for this flag to work correctly.
  • WEAPON.PRIMARY_USES_BOTH
The primary attack uses both ammo types.
  • WEAPON.ALT_USES_BOTH
Like WEAPON.PRIMARY_USES_BOTH, makes the AltFire (secondary) attack use both ammo types.
  • WEAPON.WIMPY_WEAPON
A small weapon with limited capabilities. If ammo for something better gets picked up the game will automatically switch weapons unless the weapon to switch to has the NOAUTOSWITCHTO flag set.
  • WEAPON.POWERED_UP
This is a powered up weapon. Powered up weapons cannot exist by themselves. They always are linked to a normal weapon via the weapon.sisterweapon property and are only activated by using Heretic's Tome of Power or another artifact based on PowerWeaponLevel2.
  • WEAPON.STAFF2_KICKBACK
Uses the special kickback formula of Heretic's powered up staff. Unlike normal kickback this is a fixed thrust value.
  • WEAPON.EXPLOSIVE
Signifies to bots that the weapon fires explosive projectiles.
  • WEAPON.MELEEWEAPON
Signifies to bots, and to monsters with the AVOIDMELEE flag, that the weapon is a melee weapon.
  • WEAPON.BFG
Signifies to bots that the weapon causes a lot of damage.
  • WEAPON.CHEATNOTWEAPON
Weapon is not given by the 'give weapons' cheat.
  • WEAPON.NO_AUTO_SWITCH
When the player picks this weapon up, they will never automatically switch to it.
  • WEAPON.NOAUTOSWITCHTO (New from 4.7.0)
A weapon with this flag set cannot be switched to automatically upon obtaining ammo for it. Typically, if the player had run out of ammo for a weapon, and the weapon that was automatically switched to as a result is a weak weapon, obtaining ammo for the other weapon automatically switches away from the weak weapon and back to it, provided the player had not manually switched weapons in the interim, and the other weapon has a higher selection priority than the weak one.
  • WEAPON.NOAUTOAIM
A weapon with that flag will not adjust the aim of an attack, no matter the player's autoaim settings. This is intended to be used only for projectiles affected by gravity, such as grenades, where the player will usually want to aim higher than in a straight line, though it does also affect hitscan and railgun attacks.
  • WEAPON.NODEATHDESELECT
The weapon will not jump to the deselect state when the player dies.
  • WEAPON.NODEATHINPUT
The weapon cannot act on any input if the player is dead.
