Primotech has posted a rundown of the new Half-Life 2
mod, SMOD: Tactical
. This mod-of-a-mod transforms geeky Gordon Freeman into a Counter-Terrorist super-soldier, who can slow time and put down baddies with a few well-placed shots.
most striking elements are the remodeled weapon set and hip visual effects. You'll blast through City 17 with new toys like the 1911 .45 caliber pistol, M4 carbine with EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights, and Artic Warfare Magnum sniper rifle. The experience is heightened by depth-of-field and screen-blur effects and the aforementioned "bullet time" feature.
