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.
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.
The ability to bash, to shove back an opponent, is a key gameplay mechanic to NMRiH.SKS (which features a bayonet) do substantial damage when bashing.
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.
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 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.
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.
Round in the Chamber
In No More Room in Hell, Firearms have two sets of default capacities. The magazine capacity and a round in the chamber. Magazine Capacity tells how many bullets are within a magazine, while a round in the chamber tells whether a round is loaded into the guns barrel or "chamber" itself, ready to fire.
For example, the Beretta M9 has a magazine capacity of 15 rounds but can hold 16 rounds in total with a round chambered. This would look like this, 15+1. To achieve this goal, simply reload while still having rounds in the magazine. Most weapons have this by default and will be listed with the original magazine ammo count and a plus to say whether the weapon can accept a round chambered. There are only certain exceptions of this rule where weapons do not receive this feature.
Almost all firearms, as well as the Flare Gun and Chainsaw can have an Ammo Check. By holding down Reload (R by default), the player will initiate a small animation which the player will check the weapons total ammunition count. As of the 1.05 update, Characters will play an audio cue to how many rounds are remaining in their current magazine.
In the case of Handguns, Shotguns and some Rifles with capacities below 15 rounds, the player will give an approximate number of the remaining rounds left in their weapon. For weapons such as the MP5A3, M16A4, MAC-10, Beretta M9 and Winchester 1892 will refer to a rough approximation of the number of rounds left in the magazine such as "Magazine is full", "Over Half", "Half a Mag" and "Almost full", only until the weapon drops below 15 rounds will an exact number of rounds be stated. In the case of the Beretta M9, the term "Magazine is Full" refers to a fully loaded magazine plus a round in the chamber.
Iron sighting is possible with all firearms, and can be done by holding down Mouse2 (default) for the desired duration.
Pot Shot Mode
Some firearms will allow you to enter a 'focused' aiming mode, which will double your damage and give you a 75% chance to knock a zombie back. To activate this mode, simply enter Iron Sights mode and stand still for 3 seconds. If done correctly, your vision will have a sanguine tint and a Depth of Field effect, along with your character holding his/her breath. Currently this only affects Handguns.
