There is no control to change or select weapons. Weapons spawn at different points on the map, and you'll see them hanging there in the air.

You don't so much 'change', as use up one and grab another. Some weapons are leftovers from players that got fragged, so they don't have full loads of ammunition.

Some weapons reload much more slowly than others, so it gets a little frantic sometimes waiting for the weapon to reload, so you can fire the last shot, while drooling over the Shadowkeeper just waiting there for you, and watching another player approaching!

Have I missed anything guys?

You have one weapon you can use: It is either the bolton weapon (one you picked up) or your main tank gun. If you have a bolt on you cannot use the main tank gun until you exhaust the main tank gun's ammo.

The only way of dropping a weapon is to exhaust the bolton weapon's ammo.

Each waepon has a reload time that is different for each and based partly on the damage the weapon does so that each weapon can kill in approximately the same time with a few exceptions.

Check out the for tips on weapons.

Your mileage may vary on the Mining server

I think we were refering to unmodded servers here

One other thing: If you get so far off the map you don't think you're getting back this year, Alt-K is the suicide key, but you lose a frag.

alt-k is also a good way to get rid of that weapon you just picked up
