There are a total of 32 weapons in PAIN! They are sorted into 8 categories by
type and four classes by power. The types are the normal keys 1 through 8 and
types are (from best to worst) A through D. New weapon classes are gained by
gaining different colored armor (green=C, yellow=B, red=A). You begin with the
shotgun and the hammer, both class-D weapons. Weapon classes can be cycled with
impulse 123 or by selecting the same weapon more than once. The following is a
table of all the weapons in PAIN sorted by class and type followed by a
detailed description of each.
Max ammo has also been increased along with ammo gained from some enemies:
Axes(50), Shells(200), Nails(200), Rockets(100), Cells(150)

Use this to hang from ceilings, walls, or your enemies as you rip them to
shreds! Hold down to attach, pull, and hold. Let go to drop. You can change
weapons while using the hook, but you must be on the hook to let go.
This can also be used to hang from ceilings and walls, but unlike the grappling
hook it will pull your enemies towards you!
"Chop it up!"
You will gain five health for each successful hit with this axe, but I wouldn't
try this on any undead.
Lob your axe across the room at someone, then go pick it right back up again.
Cost: 1 Axe

Torch your enemies! Throw burning axes that will light up any party... or

Fire huge spikes right into his forehead!
Cost: 1 nail
Twice as fast, twice as deadly.
Cost: 2 nails
Fire a tiny
dart into your enemy and watch them die slowly. The effects of poison are
cumulative, so the more darts, the faster they die. If you get poisoned, grab
some health fast! It may cure you.
Cost: 10 nails
little device. When fired this orb will fire nails at anything it passes. If
the orb runs into something it can damage, it explodes in a shower of nails. If
it hits a wall, it will stay there, firing nails at anything that passes by.
The spike trap only has a total of 20 nails to fire, and if it sits dormant for
too long, it will just shoot them all off and die.
Cost: 20 nails
Have a pineapple. They're from Hawaii =)
Cost: 1 rocket
Toss a couple out and wait for someone to walk by, then hit "B" to Blow them to
Cost: 3 rockets
Stick one to a wall and run. They will arm with a warning "beep beep" and then
explode if anything moves near it. Try sticking one of these on your friend's
back instead of a "kick me" sign.
Cost: 5 rockets
Multiple Independent Reentry Vehicle. Toss one out and watch it blast off and
explode into ten smaller grenades that shoot out in all directions! Then again,
maybe you shouldn't stay to watch.

apart before finally exploding.

Will follow you almost anywhere. While it may be difficult,
it's definitely possibly to avoid these homers. Run behind someone else and let
them get chased, run around a couple corners until you're out of it's "sight",
fire off a flare in it's direction, or just turn on auto-flare with impulse 20.
Cost: 8 rockets
Elemental Energy Guns
Note: Cells now recharge if you have the EEG, at least one cell, and no more
than enough cells for the BFG.
AKA The Lightning Gun. Electrocute those sons of bitches! But don't fire this
underwater; bad things will happen. Of course you could fire INTO the water and
watch the gibs fly out!
Cost: 1 cell
AKA The Air Fist. Fire huge blasts of compressed air sending enemies flying
through the air!
Cost: 5 cells
AKA The Flame-Thrower. Anyone for some toasted shambler? Mmmm Mmm Good. Catch
your foes on fire. If you get torched, find some water or a teleporter to get
put out. This makes a nice bubble-blower underwater.
Cost: 2 cells
AKA The Freeze Gun. Completely freeze your enemy for ten seconds, plenty of time
to blast them into tiny chunks of ice! Firing this underwater is almost as
stupid as firing the Lightning Gun underwater.
Cost: 8 cells

thirty seconds, but a ring power will last until death. The ring can be worn

be activated. Only ONE player may hold the mystic rune or the mystic ring at a

will be respawned. If you die, your minions are set free. Undead will
automatically attack anything you attack or anything that attacks you. You may
only have five followers at a time. If you try to resurrect more than that, you
will automatically sacrifice your old followers.

BTW - No, not ALL the modifications are completely original, but the ones that
aren't are generally re-coded beyond recognition (or close to it). However, I
don't want to be accused of ripping code, so if ANYONE has a patch that they
think I used, just mail me and tell me you want your name here and what the
patch was and I'll put you on my credits page.
