Overview

The weapons in No More Room in Hell are meant to reflect a varied assortment of civilian, law enforcement and military firearms as well as obvious and unique melee weapons for close combat. Weapons are usually common in and around the opening areas of a level, to equip players initially. Weapons become less common place and more rare as the levels go on, forcing players to search high and low from obvious places such as gun shops to the less conspicuous areas such as behind a knocked over book shelf.

During Gameplay

Weapons can be equipped from the Radial Inventory, by clicking on the weapon with Mouse1. Clicking Mouse2 on the weapon will drop it to the ground for another player to pick up. Weapons can also be equipped by scrolling with the mousewheel.

By default, pressing and holding Mouse2 will shoulder the firearm to ironsights mode for more precision. Your movement and field of view are more constrained while in ironsights. Releasing Mouse2 will return you to hip firing.

All weapons and equipment have an assigned mass that will affect the player's mobility and agility. A encumbrance of inventory will also result in a faster stamina drain.

Bashing

The ability to bash, to shove back an opponent, is a key gameplay mechanic to NMRiH.

The "bash" function in action
Zombies can grab players preventing any further movement and massively increase the risk of infection. Bashing (sometimes referred to as "shoving") a zombie will push them out of your way by a couple of feet and break any hold on you that they may have had. Generally speaking bashing does not do much damage, but some weapons such as the SKS (which features a bayonet) do substantial damage when bashing.

Melee Weapons

Melee weapons are by far the most common place of all weapons in NMRiH. They can be found all over the place and vary in size and speed. Some melee weapons are one handed, which allows them to be used with the flashlight. Most melee weapons do not have this ability however, as many are large and cumbersome.

Charged Attacks

All melee weapons feature a "charged" attack which can be accomplished by pressing and holding Mouse1 (default) and given a few seconds the attack should be fully charged. Winding up with a charged attack is a sure way to deal a massive blow to any hostile, but keep in mind that charged attacks drain stamina in chunks.

Tools

Tools in NMRiH are used in two capacities. The first is behaving more or less like a traditional melee weapon (except the flaregun, which behaves like a pistol). The second capacity is the special functionality of each, filling a certain roll that is unique for each tool.

Welder

Fire Extinguisher

Flare Gun

Barricade Hammer

Maglite

Special Applications

As listed above each tool has its own unique abilities. Many of these are used to complete objectives (extinguishing fires, cutting through doors) while others augment the gameplay (barricading doors, signalling for a supply drop). By default if the player uses Mouse2 (default), this will activate the Special of the tool. This applies to all except the flaregun, whose functionality is only achieved if fired in to the sky at an angle at or greater than 75 degrees.
