exVest Realism Mod for Call of duty 2 – XVR v0.6.0

BaloonsAs I announced a 2 weeks ago, the latest “piece of software” made by Blue 3 Systems. Mod for the game Call of Duty 2. The point of this mod is to enhance realism and fun of multiplayer game mode for the Call of Duty 2. Primarily, the idea was to remove some “glitches” or “features” that just didn’t belong in this game like jumping+aiming+shooting while being accurate a big bwahahaha, throwing grenades across the whole map, etc. Modifying weapon properties and balance was also necessary, grenade cooking, etc. Anyway take a look at the features, and see everything included in the mode.
