This is a weapon stats modification für GTA:San Andreas! The weapon stats have been improved and are a bit more realistic now. I have tested these weapon stats with missions like 'Just Business', 'Reuniting The Families', 'Los Desperados', 'End Of The Line' and also with some gang wars. It's more difficult than ever before to survive and you've to proceed more tactically if you want to survive the shootouts. Well, to install this mod, you've to put the 'weapon.dat' file into the 'data'-folder which is in the folder of the game. Usually the place where you've to put this file is C:\Programs\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas\data

I recommend you, that before you are going to install this modification, to back up the original weapon.dat file!
But if not then it's not a problem since I have added the original file to the archive as well.
It would be nice if you write your opinion about this modification and of course write down what I could improve!
