It's 007 meets Quake 2! 007Q2 is the perfect mod to bone up on your skills at the weapons spies use. Weapons like the PP7, AK-47, and ZMG 9mm are what get the killing done, and a plethora of other guns and explosive toys to eliminate the threat were thrown in for good measure. Need to lay a trap for that enemy you just can't seem to kill? Try some proximity mines or maybe a remote controlled one, just to be extra sure. Gotta go somewhere high real quick? The handy dandy grappling hook will get you there on time!

This blog post is dedicated to Christina and Eliot, big fans of the retro games. I remember getting to the 10th "eggwave" (beyond level 50) in 2 player Joust with Eliot. Its totally possible we got way farther than that but as one of my proudest gaming achievements I do not want to overstate it. Thank you for supporting my Quake 2 gaming history videos on Patreon!
