Rail Arena for Quake II
Rail Arena is a Quake II deathmatch mod by SumFuka in which all the
weapons are replaced with the famous railgun, and accuracy is at a premium.
Normally in Quake II, the railgun does 100 points of damage, enough to kill any
player who has no armor and hasn't had his health pumped above 100. Rail Arena spices
things up a bit, though, as its railgun does only 25 points of damage, but players score
not just for fragging opponents, but for scoring hits with the railgun.
The real fun of Rail Arena comes when a player scores five hits in a row without a
miss. This is a difficult task, but if a player achieves it, he is (usually) richly
rewarded with one of the following powerups:
At the end of the level, the server will give out awards for the most points, the
longest streak, and the most accurate player. It is left to players to decide which is
the most important.
Rail Arena is a relatively simple but fun mod, as players don't need to
download any additional files (the mod is server-side only) or develop any intricate
strategies. Rail Arena simply asks players to put those little white crosshairs
on opponents and pull the trigger.
