    Random Weapon Mutator

    I don't really hold a great hope for this, but it's such a simple mutator that would be very useful to have.

    I sometimes play a very short game (6-7 minutes) using a weapon arena (vs bots). It is a short, quick practice at particular weapons. Once the game is over I'll try a different weapon and focus on that.

    It is, essentially, weapons training.

    The problem is that you can't do this online because it requires a new game start each time. It would be great if a "Random Weapon Arena" mutator was created by the Epic team - hopefully allowing the option to tick which weapons to include.

    Each map would then randomly pick one of the weapons (excluding the one used on the last map) and the game would being. At the end of the map a new weapon is selected.

    It's pure weapons training but with a short game length it could be very fun and useful.

    Ah ...sounds like Dynamic Arena for UT99. It's also great fun in a regular match because player are forced to be flexible. One minute you get the Sniper the next minute you got suddenly the Impact Hammer.

    Oh ...now I reread your post you mean random weapons for each map start. Not random weapons after a time interval in the actual running match.


    then.... never mind.

      They're not far off the same thing. The point is to force everyone to practice a particular weapon.

      I guess dynamic arena might not give enough time to get a grip of the current weapon, but after a few maps you'd have played all weapons a good amount.

        In Dynamic arena you can set up the time limit to what ever you like ...say half an hour when you know this map get played usually not longer than 15 minutes and you get a random weapon every new map start.

        But yes I know there exists a Random-Arena for UT99 which fulfils your requirements. A customizable list of weapons (even mixes with mods are possible) disabling certain picku-ps or turn all of them into ammo for the random weapon or give unlimited ammo... etc.
        It's a mutator and I think it must be possible to achieve something similar in UT4.
