Guns that are customizable in every aspect, and a lot more. Toss grenades at enemies. Deflect melee and ranged attacks with riot shields, Call of Duty® style. Guard your property with land-mines that explode when walked into by mobs or players, struck with fists or items, or when shot by projectiles. Call in airstrikes to bomb a designated area. Place or throw explosives that you can remotely detonate from any world, from any position on the map. Items that generate explosions when picked up, shot out of dispensers, or when the chest containing the item is opened. When a booby trap is placed in an item frame, all pressure plates within 4 blocks will generate an explosion whenever they are stepped on. Dual wield your weapons. Also known as "Akimbo". Release explosive bomblets upon detonations. Add attachments to your weapons. Create all kinds of melee weapons, ranging from simple combat knives to chainsaws. Fire instant projectiles that can pass through multiple enemies.

Known issue

  • Minecraft visual bug:
    • Projectiles that are launched at high velocities (>40) may follow a warped flight path. Generally, they will appear to either curve to the left or to the right. Do not be fooled though, as the projectiles will always be spot-on despite what you see!

Planned updates

  • Explosives - Completed (v0.8 - v0.9)
  • Overkill - Completed (v0.94)
  • Mechanics - Ongoing (v0.9 - ...)

    That's very possible, you just need to check the backstab node on:

    The team fortress 2 spy has a knife, and if he stabs/hit's someone in the back with the knife it will play a PLING sound and the victim will instantly die. I would prefer if someone could make me this in crack shot.I'm using the latest version of Bukkit . I'm also using latest version of crack shot. Thank you

    @checked01: Go

    I did something similar while messing around, I used mcpatcher to read the symbols ( "■ □ _" ) in the name to make reloading/bolting animations.

    Here, use this as an example just pop it in your resource pack "\assets\minecraft\mcpatcher\cit\.......",

    Hello, I am trying to make a texture pack for this plugin that will use either the item name or the lore to differentiate textures using mcpatcher, this works with regular items but when I try it on a pistol or any other weapon it fails. Do Crackshot guns have a different lore or name than would be specified in the Custom Item Textures part of mcpatcher?

    I just recently added the "Spectators_Staff" and now whenever i do /shot config reload is says "the fly defeaultWeapons.yml is not correctly configured please look in console and fix it" i have no clue what to look for what to do etc. So here is a copy of my crackshot.

    this is the console error.

    @marc771122: Go

    Mark, I suggest you go to this link: Resource Pack

    Now I wonder why your asking now: Why'd you give me the default resource pack? Well your guns are using SPECIFIC item ids. Whatever you wanna do, it depends on the type of item. And even better, if you look at this resource pack you can easily discover how resource packs work (look inside the folder). For items, such as guns, use a pixel-editor to replace the .png images in the assets/minecraft/textures/items folder. Good luck making a good resource pack!

    I love this plugin and it works perfectly. I see so many complaints in this chat meanwhile I am just sitting here waiting patiently for more default explosives and weapons (and ones that introduce more mechanics)
