Insane Weapons Mod: The most insane Quake II mod ever!

Insane Weapons Mod: The most insane Quake II mod ever!

Insane Weapons Mod is a mod that brings new, creative and insane weapons into the Quake2 world. Keeping in mind that this is an early weapons test, there is not much new in terms of features and gamemodes, but many of them are awaiting implementing! There are many weapons, features and items that you will need to deal with, but it’s not a problem since everything is kept simple and managable.

Simple Configuration

A base configuration file, autoexecuted file and a default bindings configuration file is included. Each of these are executed when you start IWM. Please note that these are the default binds for arrow key configuration; we recommend you change these to your own settings and binds to your own keys.

You can contact me, Paril, the programmer of the mod at, or SkiesOfBordom, the modeler/sound finder/etc at You can email either of us for mod problems, but I recommend using carbon copy (cc) to send the message to both of us. Either way, we’ll both get the message

If you’d like to chat, we both use MSN Messenger at the same address. SkiesOfBordom uses Yahoo Messenger at the same address, and we both use AIM aswell (You can email us for that information). If you use teamspeak, you can join in at “”, SkiesOfBordom’s teamspeak server.
