About Urban Terror
Available weapons are less accurate when fired while moving and require a reload after it has been spent. The number of weapons and other equipment that can be transported is limited.
The damage is also realistic, based on dividing the player's objective into discrete areas. In addition to the damage system, wounds require bandages and injuries sustained to the legs or feet significantly slow down the player until they are bandaged.
As well a resistance system is present and is exhausted by activities like running or jumping; Squatting allows the resistance bar to recover faster.
Depending on the map being played, external environments are also more realistic and may include weather effects such as rain or snow.
Game modes include:
- Free for All.
