Rahnman's Weapons Mod
Added: 16/01/10 05:19:20
Description: New version released 8 August 2011.

Rahnman has released v4.01 of his coop_kits.

This version includes minor updates and bug fixes, check the readme file for more information.

Delete any old versions and replace with v4.01.

Rahnman’s Weapons Mod v4

This version differs from the previous versions (v2 and v3) in that I have been able to incorporate Brettzie's L85A2 and Susat scope. I have also increased the number of kits, so there is a much greater variety of choices. Like v2 and v3, most of the primary weapons are available for use as secondary weapons. This means that if you want an M16 (with an ACOG, silencer, and GL) for a primary and an M99 for a secondary, you can have it. The possibilities are endless!

Here are the "NEW" weapon/ sight combinations (these are in addition to the regular weapons):

2) M416 ACOG, Reflex, Short Dot
3) SCAR's ACOG, Reflex, Short Dot, M96_Flashlight
4) G36 ACOG, Reflex
5) M1014 Shotgun Reflex, Aimpoint
6) MP5SD/A4 Reflex, M96_Flashlight
8) Mk18 Aimpoint, Eotech, ACOG, Silencer
9) Sig552 Aimpoint, Eotech, ACOG, Silencer, M96_Flashlight
10) Mk14 Aimpoint, Eotech, ACOG, Sniper Scope, Silencer
11) M16 Aimpoint, Eotech, ACOG, Silencer, GL
12) M4A1 Aimpoint, Eotech, ACOG, Silencer, GL
13) SAW Reflex, Aimpoint
14) M14 Aimpoint
15) L85A2 Susat, Silencer

Although this mod was primarily intended to be used for coop play it can also be used for Campaign and TvT play. A complete description and installation instructions are included in the "READ ME" file. Please do yourself a favor and read this file before installing the mod.

Reporting crashes or issues:
If you have any problems using this mission then please use the Discussion link below which will redirect you to the release thread in the Ghost forums.

I would like say a huge “THANK YOU” to both Brettzie and SnowFella for allowing me to use their amazing work. I would also like to thank all the beta testers who contributed to the testing of this mod as well as to the discussions in the forums. They are:

The TAW (The Art of Warfare) “Maverick/Sabre Squads” – Goose, Reddog, SSwannabe, Zero, Cherry, Doc, MexicoBob, Pokey, Kuhl’Ka, Brildayr, GhostShadowCoral, BeerCrazy, and DirewolfFive, ABG Viper and the rest of his guys at “A Gaming Brotherhood”, JohnTC02, Anthony, Jody, =WBG=Ron, Light, kaapo (Klaus and Erika), and Chocko.

A lot of thanks for your great job.

Amazing mod on our coop dedicated server Tongueout

Posted By Rahnman on 18/01/10 12:25:01

1. Make sure the "bundle" file goes in the "mods" foler

2. Drag "context" file to GRAW2 folder (delete the "standalone_context" file, its for server admins)

3. Drag the "batch" file to the GRAW2 folder (double click on it to start the game).

4. Rename your "English" folder (or whatever language you are using) to something else

5.  You could try renaming your "local" folder also.  Try "local 1". Sometimes, if you have override files in the local or English folders they will cause the game to crash.

The game should run if you do these things.  I don't know of anyone else who's had problems.


Posted By Rahnman on 18/01/10 21:03:33

Hello again,

 I would get this type of error due to conflicts with my "English" folder inside my "local" folder.  Try renaming these folders and see if that fixes the problem.

Posted By Rahnman on 19/01/10 10:08:14


If you are still having problems after doing these things, it may be best to delete the mod files and download the mod again.  I have had difficulty with some missions I have downloaded. They would not load correctly.  I deleted them and did another download and it fixed the problem. 

If you have any further questions, please post them in the "Public Release Thread".  The link is under the screenshot above.  SYOTB, Rahn.

Hallo an alle,

kann das Spiel mit MOD starten, kann allerdings keine Waffen auswählen, ist nach wie vor Standard. Wenn ich Hoste mit Pack, können andere Spieler meinem Spiel beitreten, sobald jemand eine Waffe auswählt, stürzt das ganze Spiel ab.

Kann mir evt. jemand helfen.

Posted By Rahnman on 29/03/10 21:32:25

If you have a problem with crashes, try downloading the "unbundled" version of the mod.  Find the link above entitled "Public Release Thread".  The link for the unbundled version will be in that forum.



Posted By Luca on 30/04/10 04:32:24

I don't have a "mods" file .. should I just create one? it keeps showing an error screen ... is it about the version I'm using? How do I know which version I have? Does it work on a saved game or do I have to start fresh?

Posted By TAW_Rahnman on 01/05/10 19:53:52


The "Mods" folder (not file) should be inside your main GRAW2 folder.  Look for it there.  If it is not there then, yes, I would try creating one. If you are still getting crashes then you may need to use the "unbundled" version.  To find it look underneath the picture above for the link to "public release thread".  Inside that thread on post #9 you will find the link for the unbundled version.  Make sure to read the "read me" file that is included.  As far as saved games are concerned, you must start fresh.

I'm [RAW]Fera456 in GRAW 2 does not know if I ever saw me playing but I really liked your mod, I'm playing better with this mod like weapons of support with the sights, sniper 5 / 20 shooting, the sniper secondary maybe we will see in GRAW 2 thanks for the mod

Posted By update on 27/07/10 01:21:27

update to v2.4 please

Posted By dont run on 27/07/10 01:23:33

dont run in version  spanish

Posted By TAW_Rahnman on 03/08/10 22:21:49

Version 2.4 is a beta version that is currently under testing.  It is not available for release at this time.  When the beta testing is complete it will be released as version 3.0.

You shouldn't need a "Spanish" or an "English" folder to run this mod.  In fact, I recommend renaming the Spanish/English folder to something else so that it doesn't conflict with the mod (usually "English_REAL" or "Spanish_REAL").  Try that and see what happens.




Posted By Daniel on 13/08/10 09:25:50

Sorry to bring up a dead topic but i tried the unbundled and bundled version for yours and brettzies. Unfortunately, both came up with this:

Crash in application version: 29980.2562

rahman i done all what i need and when i want get in game ist beyng chrashed i can say whats readed

Crash in application version: 0.3048Could not load context.xml 

Posted By shrex on 03/10/10 14:52:26

cool mod dude!


btw, is there any mod which gives the realistic scope behaviour? i'm annoyed that scope always stands still even when you move...there's no sway effect.

Posted By TAW_Rahnman on 21/10/10 19:36:08

Unfortunately, no.  There are 'sway' variables.  I don't know for certain but I think the creaters originally intended for there to be sway in the scopes but never wound up implementing it.

Posted By H_David on 28/12/10 05:19:19

Nice Job Rahnman

Posted By H_David on 28/12/10 05:20:02

You are very nice programer

Posted By Best Mod yet! on 29/12/10 07:10:25

Just wanted to say: This is my all time favourite mod for Graw2.  Love the weapons choice/combo's in all coop maps.  Even in single player mode its grand.  Would be cool if you could incorporate even more weapons from Bretzies pack. Even though he has other weapons, I don't much like the load out limitations and/or the weapon combo's he's put together.  His weapons are great though...

 All in all - keep up the good work - it's people like you that ensure the longevity of a game like GRAW2 and make it more fun to play.

I'm glad you like the mod guys!

Good job Rahnman; I like the mod and it worked perfect for me.

 Anyone else been having this problem, or know how to fix it?

Posted By TAW_ThadAnt on 23/02/11 11:23:38

This mod is Great!  Nice job TAW_Rahnman.  I had to play the hole game over again. 

Posted By Joe VVA on 24/02/11 05:44:25

Hello Rahnman,I just installed your coop kit V3 and I like it. No probs with the PC or the gameor the weaps. There is an occasional crash during the Water Treatment missionif I throw 2 grenades to take out the VBL's before I fox the Havoc, however, I reckon this is because I also updated to the latest version with Ubi's 1.05 updater. Thanks much for a good choice of weapons! Maybe...just V3.1 you could get Mitchell, Ramirez, Beasley, Brown et say something like..."Hey Boss, I'm bustin for a shit." or "Hey Boss, who was that babe I saw you with in Galveston?" or some other humorous banter becauseout in the field it does happen between teammates.Perhaps there is a way to get to Ubi and tell em to change Mitchells voice froma near feminine one to a more masculine voice in the Welcome to Juarez andfinal mission; in Juarez, at the market, his voice cracks and the same thing happenswhen he gets to the missile in the silo and rambles on about the launch sequence.A great game would be much better if just those two voices were changed....Cheers from Thailand,JoeViet Vet...1971-75

Posted By Cadex on 27/03/11 01:02:10

I just loaded this and I get the following crash message...

Crash in application version: 0.3048Could not load context.xml

Any help would awsome.  I am stumped (not hard to do)





Posted By TAW_Rahnman on 27/03/11 21:24:07

Hey Cadex!

I would make sure that the context.xml for the mod has been placed in the GRAW2 folder (main directory) along with the batch file.  The FOLDER "rahnman's coop kits v3.0" should be located in "Local" folder.  I would rename or remove the "English" folder from within the local folder.  Once this is done, double click on the batch file and you shouldn't have any problems.

Refer to the "Read Me" file that was included in the download for detailed instructions.  Let me know if you have any further problems.

Cheers,    Rahn

Posted By Cadex on 28/03/11 18:11:31

Thanks RahnCool...I failed to put your context.xml into the GRAW2 folder.  It came up now. 

See ya in game.

Any help on this??



Posted By TAW_Rahnman on 30/03/11 17:30:23

Nope!  LOL!  It looks like just one of the many different types of crashes you can get when you run the mod.  Is it something that is preventing you from using the mod or does it just happen occasionally?


Posted By Cadex on 31/03/11 18:01:58

It happened once the map was loading.  I will try it again on a different map.  Let's hope it works.  I want to be able to put your hard work into action.




Posted By Mille_RS on 11/04/11 11:45:48

Hi RAH....

your mod is more than excellent, especially the number of grenades, RX4HP or any other HP weapon, really excellent job. My only wish is if you would put and AK-47 or Zastava-M70AB2 (that is restyled AK 47, could be found on the Internet), since Us have quite a lot who would like to see something like that. For example in some of the following versions. I hope that this game will last for a long time and that you will have a still to deal with this MOD, so that you can surprise Us with something new and better.

Best regards for the MOD-MAN and good luck in the the following work......

Posted By Inncubus on 07/05/11 06:18:47

Top mod.

Posted By on 09/05/11 19:32:02

Is this mod usable with Online Campaign? My bro keeps crashing.

Posted By TAW_Rahnman on 15/05/11 09:35:07

We tried that in the beta testing period and it worked.  But testing was only cursary.  I will test it more thoroughly in the next version.



Posted By Sledge on 01/08/11 16:28:01

Hi Rahnman!  My buddies and I love your mod - I've got them all using it now. We play accross the Net using Hamachi twice a week until the wee hours.

I keep checking to see if you've made any more modifications to the weapons bundle...


 Just a thought:  Saw 'future weapons' on DMAX the other night and saw a few weapons that would certainly have a high 'fun' factor - the Dillion M134 Minigun in all it's variations is one.  I can just imagine the mayhem that would create... Made to be mounted on choppers/boats/vehicles etc -  but there's also a hand held version that would be devastating.

<evil grin>

Another cool assault rifle I saw there was the Masada - an amazing weapon - you can mod it to fit any combat situation - long/short/medium barrel, AK47 mode etc. All done withing seconds as it is fully modular, and able to be done by 'exspurts' like us with minimal training.  It can use Nato as well as AK47 ammo - incredibly versatile - not exactly sure how that would translate into the game, or if it were even possible, but maybe food for thought?

 Keep up the good work!  Much appreciated!


Posted By -=Brigand=- on 05/08/11 05:40:37

Thank you, merci beaucoup !!! Smile

Posted By Sledge on 06/08/11 14:54:04

Null? As in no further mods?

Posted By TAW_Rahnman on 08/08/11 07:42:38

Lol, my post must have not been ........ uh ....... posted.  If you like the masada weapons you might want to check out SnowFella's mod.  He did a whole set of those along with some new weaponsights.  I especially like his shortdot and reflex sights, which I have incorporated into this mod.  I didn't use the masada weapons thought since they were very similar to the SCAR in the way they looked.

As far as new weapons are concerned, I do not have the software to be able to create them so I use weapons that have been made by those who do.  3DSmax7 costs over $3500!! Don't have that kind of cash laying around, LOL.

Glad you like the mod! 



Posted By Sledge on 09/08/11 03:16:13

Ouch - Damned expensive!  I can understand why...

And yes - I also thought the Masada looked awfully like the Scar.  I'll check out Snowfella's stuff, I'm intrigued now. :)

I do have some 3d modelling software - what kind of files do you require - I could try to make you a chaingun..  I just need to know what format you need and then I'll know if I can make you some.



Posted By Sledge on 09/08/11 03:20:02

Oh - and perhaps we can continue this conversation elsewhere... Probably not the ideal spot for it...


Posted By Rico686 on 11/08/11 18:56:55

Good mod Rahnman!!! Worked perfectly in Harry Lee 2056 Enemies. The Avatars are funny.

You seem to be a gun enthousiast, would it be possible to bring in some new high tech weaponry in the mod? For example a Cheytac Intervention M200 Sniper Rifle instead of the old M99. I know it's alot work to change such a thing, but wouldn't it be a challenge to come up with a better and more up to date gun in GRAW2 before GRFS is released? Why stick to the old guns when you have the knowledge to bring in other and more up to date guns into the game. The MRC is in fact a non-existing weapon. Instead of the MRC you could switch it for the FN P90. I know, I know, alot of work but I'm sure everyone would like it.

Anyway, I like what you've done with the mod. Keep up the good work!

Posted By Vtelmo on 13/08/11 05:10:32

Great mod me and my friends use it all the time. Love the semi-auto M99 Wow. Have you done any maps or campains? if they are some would love to try them.

Ok, thanks for the wepons mod and hope there are people still doing mods for this game its a great game and hate to see it die.

Posted By TAW_Rahnman on 15/08/11 08:18:13

Hey Rico, I'm glad to see that you got it to work!! LOL!  I don't have the software that is required to make new weapons.  It is very expensive, so I can only use what has been made by others.  Sorry about that. Vtelmo, I'm glad you like the mod.  No, I don't do campaigns or missions.  I'm strictly a weaponhead, LOL!

Posted By 3D models on 16/08/11 15:47:08

Rahn, Here's a Minigun 3D object I've been working on:


Posted By Sledge on 17/08/11 02:38:45

Oooops - forgot to slap my name on the above post again...



Just trying out your Mod 4 - droool droool maniacal grin....

I checked out the pics of the minigun ........ AWESOME!!!!!
