{{quote|quotation="Just like the name states, it's a modification for Blood which allows using custom weapons. From revolvers to new bloody shotguns! Of course since Blood's modding is limited, the mod only allows replacing current weapons, but aren't you bored playing the same weapons for years? Maybe you want to play fun mode by installing Triple DZ or maybe Hardcore mode by choosing PowerSlaver revolver? The choice is yours! DosBox is recommended to play this mod, but BloodGDX supports this mod too, since GDX uses BLOOD.RFF and SOUND.RFF. Sadly, some hacks will not work since GDX does not use Blood.exe. Nevertheless it's possible to use custom weapons too."|attributedTo=NoOne}}

===Version 3===
  
The Weapons Mod mostly [[List of Mods for Blood#Weapon Mods|replaces weapons]] with their ''[[Blood Alpha]]'' versions, save for the [[Tommy Gun]] which gets replaced with the Riot Shotgun from ''[[:wikipedia:Shadow Warrior (1997 video game)|Shadow Warrior]]'' and the inclusion of the twin pistols from ''[[:wikipedia:PowerSlave|PowerSlave]]'' (''Exhumed'') over the [[Tommy Gun]]. It was released on [[Fact Timeline#2012|November 17, 2012]], and features an [[:wikipedia:Batch file|batch file]] to allow for the installation of each particular weapon (noting that the alpha and riot shotguns are mutually exclusive). It was packaged with ''Final Alone in the Dark''.

===Version New===
  
The mod was later reissued as a version 1.2. It changed the double revolver into a single revolver, as well as other slight tweaks to their characteristics. Version 1.3 added tweaks to the [[Life Leech]]. A version 2.0 was later released on [[Fact Timeline#2016|September 16, 2016]] that brought the roster up to 12. All versions were made by NoOne (aka Dimon), and a version is included with the ''New Alone in the Dark'' modification. Version 3.0 was released on [[Fact Timeline#2017|September 6, 2017]] bringing the roster up to 18.

"After one and a half years of work we are ready to officially introduce you this addon. For a long time we've been thinking of how to preserve the atmosphere of this game loved by all of us, but at the same time to extend the existing limits, bring up new gameplay and experience. This time we've gone far beyond simple fan map-making and are going to prove to you that Blood is not this hopeless even without source code.
