Actor >> Inventory (UT) >> Weapon

The thing you use to shoot stuff and kill monsters and other players with.

Sometimes you can hurt yourself very badly with it too ...use with caution.

Remember: Guns don't kill people. Bullets do.

Wormbo:Usually this is true. But in Unreal/UT some weapons don't use projectiles, so here really the guns kill the people. ;)

Should the above page be moved to a subpage of this one?

Wormbo:The information of that page should be moved to the respective classes. e.g. DoubleName is a property of the Enforcer class and not available in any other weapon class.
