Daggerfall’s a game for a grognard’s grognard, no two methods about it. It is received the most important map of any Elder Scrolls by an order of magnitude, nevertheless it’s largely empty. Daggerfall has probably the most abilities, but when they don’t seem to be borked, they’re nonfunctional (yeah I am a Thaumaturgy and Centaurian language important). It is a key a part of Bethesda’s historical past, however God rattling is it onerous to return again to. Fortunately, the Daggerfall Unity source port is right here to easy out operating the game on trendy {hardware}, in addition to introduce as many (or as few) trendy niceties as fit your fancy. The port additionally impressed an expansive modding scene.

Enter Future Shock Weapons by spamtrooper on NexusMods. Spamtrooper’s venture not solely upholds the sacred custom of including incongruous AKs and ACOGs to Bethesda’s fantasy and retro-futurist worlds, but additionally celebrates one of many studio’s lesser-known video games. In-between Enviornment and Daggerfall, Bethesda launched The Terminator: Future Shock, a Doom clone-era FPS set on this planet of James Cameron’s post-apocalypse. As of late you possibly can’t even get Future Shock on GOG, nevertheless it does dwell on as abandonware on websites like (and you will want its belongings for spamtrooper’s mod to work).

As for the mod itself, nicely, it is a bunch of weapons in an Elder Scrolls game, so it is humorous as hell. “Ten(!) new, very unfitting and un-lore-friendly weapons have been added,” spamtrooper boasts within the mod’s description.

The weapons have infinite ammo however restricted sturdiness, and amusingly depend on your archery talent to land hits⁠—Daggerfall was peak “motion RPGs ought to be the worst of each worlds between motion and RPGs,” so the aiming’s dealt with solely below the hood with talent checks and cube rolls.

If you wish to attempt Future Shock Weapons (or simply play Daggerfall like God meant), you are going to wish to download the game without spending a dime from Bethesda’s web site and get the newest model of the Daggerfall Unity source port. Glad adventuring, and check out to not get caught in any world geometry when you’re at it.
