Welcome to the Tactical
Tactical Ops is a Realistic Unreal Tournament Teamplay
modification, where a Special Forces team will battle to the death
with a group of terrorists. Once one team has been wiped out, both
teams will be given cash. With this money you can buy new weapons,
items and inventory. At the start of a game you will be asked to
select a team, either "Special Forces" or
"Terrorists". If you choose the elite Special Forces team,
you will have to stop the terrorists from killing hostages and
escaping to certain points of a map, but, on the other hand, you
could choose to be the low down dirty terrorists and stop the
Special Forces from rescuing hostages and preventing you from
escaping! Either team, its a fight to the death. Throughout the
game you can also pick up evidence, such as cocaine and bundles of
money, which if you are a member of the Special Forces can be used
against the Terrorists in a court of law and if you are a
terrorist can be given back to your gang leader, either way you
will be rewarded.
This mod is still at "beta" status. The mod is not
might still be bugs and glitches in it, which we will fix in later
betas. As well as fixing new bugs, we will also add, more levels,
game play elements and of course more guns! As the mod progresses
you will see some big and some small changes, but both will bring
you a better and less buggy mod. The new beta's of Tactical OPs
will always be announced first on the Tactical Ops Page, so be
sure to check there regularly, apart from new beta news and
releases, the site also features exclusive shots of new weapons,
maps and more!
If you find a bug could you please report it to the mod's lead
beta tester, Bloodknight,
if we have not heard of the bug, he will pass it on to Shag. We greatly appreciate bug submissions due to the fact it will help
the Tactical Ops community and help bring a better mod for all of
Please take your time to
browse this manual and we hope you enjoy the manual and the mod!

are not. (When your crosshair is moved over a player, if it goes
red, they are an enemy and if it goes green, they are friendly.)

Those are just
a few tips, you will develop many new skills and tactics as you

The Tactical Ops weapon have been divided into
into 5 main categories, Explosives (found in items section of
manual), Pistols, Sub Machineguns, Shotguns and Rifle's (Assault
and Sniper). Each have big differences and are used in very
different manners. At any one time you can carry a maximum 4
weapons, your knife, a pistol, a sub-machinegun or shotgun and a rifle.
You can also carry 1 grenade at a time. You should try to find out
good combinations of weapons, for instance, a sniper might want to
carry a sniper rifle for long range and if they find them self in
close combat, have a shotgun waiting on there back.
small and sleek design of this knife make it extremely portable,
the small size dose not make it less deadly, also bare in mind
that this weapon is very quiet. When your blade gets bloody, use
secondary fire to wipe the blood off. You can also buy more
knifes and throw them.
||The Glock 21 is based around a semi-automatic slider and .45 ACP rounds; it is one of the most well rounded pistols available to buy. The Glock 21 has a good power/accuracy compromise. Although this weapon was developed in Austria and used by
it's army, it is manufactured in the USA.
||The Desert Eagle was designed, and is used by Israeli Forces. It has a massive .50
caliber, which makes it an extremely powerful sidearm and a valuable addition to the Special Forces and terrorists
armory. The Desert Eagle is also very accurate and operates around a semi-automatic slider mechanism.
||This combat shotgun has been a useful addition to the US
government's armory for a few years. The M3, being a shotgun is designed for close encounters, if you are fighting over a large area it is not advisable to use this weapon because the shell will spread and has a high chance of missing the target.
||The Mossberg shotgun is a small yet capable shotgun. It uses standard 12guage cartridges and can hold a maximum of 8 shells at a time. It's power is around the same is the M3?s because both shotguns use the same type of ammunition although the Mossberg has a shorter barrel length so the spread will be greater.
||The MP5, seen as the worlds finest Sub MachineGun was adopted by the US navy and configured to their
need's to produce the MP5 Navy. It is a well-rounded gun, which has a good compromise of accuracy and power.
The rates of fire available are single shot, three round burst and full automatic.
Mac10 is probably the most infamous gangster weapon in the
world. Mainly because it is a sub machinegun which can be held
single handily. It fires .45 ACP rounds in a fully automatic
fashion, which can be deadly if used correctly. After a few
shots from the Mac10, it will become extremely inaccurate.
||The AK-47 has been the Russian
Army's standard issue assault rifle since World War 2. It uses 7.62mm rounds which when fired in full automatic are very deadly. The biggest problem with this rifle is that it is near useless after 300feet. Today this weapon is becoming increasingly popular in
gang's and terrorist organizations.
||The Steyr Aug is another Austrian made gun, which is also used by their army. Its sleek futuristic design allows better
maneuverability than most other assault rifles. The weapon comes equipped with a scope and ergonomic handgrips. It fires standard 5.56mm NATO rounds.
||One of the most futuristic looking weapons available in the game, the FA-MAS is a French built assault rifle, which uses 5.56mm rounds that can be disbursed at full automatic, burst fire or single shot rates of fire. The FA-MAS has an unusual clip size of 25 rounds, which will be quickly wasted in a few seconds of fully automatic fire.
(Objective Individual Combat Weapon) is said to become the standard weapon of the US and NATO forces in
2006. Its primary weapon is a 20mm cannon, which is mounted above a 5.56mm
rifle similar to the
G36K. Although it looks bulky and heavy it is still a prototype,
the weight is actually about the same as the M16A2 with all accessories!
||The SR9 is a semi-automatic weapon, with a simple pistol styled grip. Featuring a large barrel and massive 7.62mmx51NATO rounds, the weapon combines power and accuracy, with a stable rate of fire, although it is a sporting rifle, it has been banned in the US!.
||The PSG1 is the most accurate off the shelf semi-automatic sniper rifle available to police and Special Forces
unit's. One of the biggest advantages of the weapon is that it uses massive 7.62mm rounds, which can rip straight through body amour and eliminate a target in one or two shots, but the PSG1 can only hold 5 7.62mm rounds in one clip.
||Being a bolt-action rifle, the PH-85 has a very low jamming rate and the 7.62mm rounds that are used with the weapon can cause heavy amounts of damage. This weapon was manufactured about 14 years ago in a small country called England. It
holds a maximum of 10 7.62mm rounds.
Although everything here is not an
it item, this is the best place to categorize it. Some things here
are evidence, which, if picked up, you will be rewarded with money
providing you keep it until the end of the level. Other things are
run of the ill items, such as Nightvision.
||The HE grenade is designed to create
a small yet powerful blast that will badly damage if not kill
your enemies in one go, but if thrown wrong, could bounce back
and kill you!
Flashbang releases a bright flash
of white light that can be temporarily used to blind your opponents.
Clumsy use may lead to self-blinding.
||When a concussion
grenade is thrown, and the fuse is burnt out, the grenade will explode
and release a deadly spray of shrapnel.
||This brick of cocaine would have a street value of thousands of dollars. Cocaine is very addictive so the terrorist drug dealers use that fact to an advantage and make tremendous profits.
||These three bags of Marijuana leaves have not yet been dried meaning they are not ready to smoke, unlike the blunts, below
||Blunts are rolled up versions of Marijuana which are smoked. This is one of the most common illegal drugs in the world due to the fact its cheap and not addictive.
larger bundle of money is used as evidence against the terrorists
for proof of drug profits, when picked up this is NOT added to
your personal amount of money.
player carries a bundle of money similar to this. When a player
is killed, this money is dropped and may be picked up by another
Night Vision Goggles (NVG) can be used to illuminate dark areas,
when equipped. When bright lights are present they can
make vision hard if you still have the NVG's turned on.
Kevlar Helmet, Vest and Pads are designed to slow the
penetration of bullets down, meaning that when a player is shot,
the bullet will not hurt as much and will not do as much
