Weapon (UT)

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. ;)

The weapon is responsible for setting and clearing bMuzzleFlash whenever it wants the MFTexture drawn on the Canvas. Usually bMuzzleFlash++; is enough.

float FlashO
This is responsible for the horizontal positioning of the MFTexture. (multiplied by the weapon's default FireOffset.Y and Canvas.ClipX/2, also multiplied by -0.2 when Handedness=0 or multiplied with Handedness in all other cases)
float FlashY, FlashC
Responsible for the vertical positioning of the MFTexture. FlashC is only used for Handedness=0. In this case it is added to FlashY. Finally the value is multiplied by Canvas.ClipY/2.
float FlashLength

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.
