Now then, onto weapon talk.
I’m sure that almost everyone agrees that the weapons that were defaulted into Red Eclipse aren't bad, and maybe even accurately imported to not be too overpowered, but not incredibly difficult to use, so i wont be criticizing the weapons to assume that they are terrible, because frankly, they are not. Rather, how to improve them to be more fun to use. Now this goes without saying, but, you can use this knowledge in two ways:
1. Make ultra OP weapons that no one ever has a chance of getting past, making the game fun for you, but annoying for others, or
2. Making them more fun, or more reliable, and better suited to giving an equal chance in gameplay.

( This is a list of the weapon commands we will be discussing here. )
So, the file above contains configuration commands for the pistol in Red eclipse. However, All weapons have these commands, and can be edited with the same guidelines, by changing the word “Pistol” to “Rifle”.
Here is a list of the current weapon choices available: (DO NOT INCLUDE CAPITAL LETTERS)
Now then, just to be sure that we are all on the same page here, you’ll need to learn a few words and what they mean in game terms.
Player - The person playing the game from their own point of view.
Target - Another player, or bot, that the player encounters or targets.
Weapon - The current weapon held by the player, or targeted by a command.
Projectile - The bullet fired directly from the weapon.
Frag - The “Fragments” or shrapnel left over by the “death” of a projectile.
(Primary) - The primary projectile type fired when player shoots (Left click)
(Secondary) - The secondary projectile type fired when player shoots (Right click)
( -- Integer -- or -- Float -- ) If instead of a definition in the command file, this is listed, it either means that there was no game based definition i could find, or i didn't care about figuring out what id did. However, if you figure these out, (which i strongly recommend you attempt) then feel free to add definitions to the list, so that you dont forget. Remember, this is strictly to help the player, which you might be, and i wont be able to do everything for you. :)
Thats pretty much it, however there's one more that can get a bit complicated for some people, so i will provide a link, and an image for the HEX color format codes.
