Go To

"Seven bullets I'll give to God when I go to heaven, when he asks me to answer for my sins. I'll empty them all into his head, and ask him to answer first."

Set 12 years after the events of the original game, Seven Bullets again tells the story of Jones, an USM commando who solely survived the Skaarj onslaught on planet Xidia. Now Jones is sent do planet Na Pali to retrieve a data tempelate from downed ISV Kran, which is now overrun by the Bloodpack Skaarj clan.

Seven Bullets is a single player mod for Unreal Tournament made by Team Red Nemesis. It features several revmaped classic maps along with few made from scratch. Classic UT weaponry got redesigned, including more lethal versions of the Enforcer sidearm, Ripper, and even adding working Quadshot from beta versions of Unreal.


The mod includes following tropes:

  • A Space Marine Is You: Averted. This time Jones is not another space marine clone, he is an actual character.
  • Air-Vent Passageway: There are lots of these built into hull of the downed ISV Kran and the base of Dead Scorpions.
  • Back from the Dead: The Scarred One, a Skaarj Praetorian who was deadly injured in a battle, was brought back to life with the use of nanomachines, probably by the Mercenaries.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: The Scarred One and Drago both form this.
  • Bottomless Magazines: Unlike the original game many guns have limited clip capacity and thus have to be reloaded.
  • Darker and Edgier: Towards the original Unreal.
  • Deadly Rotary Fan: There are two inside the Bloodpack Skaarj outpost.
  • Difficulty Spike: The infamous battles with terran pirates are purely Nintendo Hard.
  • Advertisement:
  • Disc-One Nuke: The XP Chaingun, which you start with on Easy and Medium. It can kill enemies very quickly, and you can even beat the Scarred One in under three seconds with it. It also carries 400 rounds.
  • Elaborate Underground Base: The Bloodpack Skaarj rebuilt the downed ISV Kran into this. Also the Dead Scorpions compound.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: The Scarred One, just as his name suggests, and this is definitely one evil scar.
  • Hand Cannon: The Quadshot. Its recoil can even injure the user.
  • Halfway Plot Switch: When leaving ISV Kran with the data template Jones' squad is ambushed by Terran pirates known as the Dead Scorpions, Jones himself is later attacked and robbed.
  • MacGuffin: The data template from ISV Kran.
  • More Dakka: Chaingun XP, which is basically minigun on steroids, its alternative fire shakes the screen a lot, but can gib regular mooks in fractions of seconds. Does not appear on higher difficulty levels. The MachineMag also counts.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: The Scarred One with the exception of final battle, where you are supposed to kill him once for all, justified by nanomachines healing his wounds.
  • No OSHA Compliance: Dead Scorpions compmound is this.
  • One-Man Army: Again, Jones is the embodiment of this trope as his extraction squad was killed by pirates.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: The mission was a success but Jones is badly injured and his extraction squad is dead, along with his best friend.
  • Set Swords to "Stun": The Shock Rifle would normally kill a human after up to three shots but the pirates somehow only manage to stun Jones with this kind of weapon.
  • Shotguns Are Just Better: The Quadshot is even more powerful than the infamous Flechette Cannon.
  • Suddenly Voiced: Unlike in Xidia Gold and Na Pali Haven Redux, Jones actually talks.
  • The Faceless: Drago wears a mask due to burns inflicted during the crash landing of Vortex Rikers.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: As mentioned above, the Chaingun XP shreds enemies to shreds in no time. Another example is the Quadshot, which deals massive damage up close when all four barrels are fired.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Jones utters the word "shit" whenever something goes wrong or he is surprised by enemies.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Previously a corporal, Jones is now a Special Ops Commando.
  • Title Drop: Jones mentions "Seven Bullets" during the course of game several times.
  • Unique Enemy:
    • "Infiltration Of The Kran" has several Broods, giant Pupae that were featured in Xidia Gold. Also, on Unreal difficulty, there are several Praetorian Broods, which are orange-colored. One vent also features a group of Larvae.
    • The last Dead Scorpion in "The Situation At Noork's Elbow" uses a GES Bio Rifle. Sadly, he doesn't drop it when killed.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Jones blows up hull of the ISV Kran after firing a Redeemer missle into dozens of Bloodpack Skaarj, which results in such a response from Crowley.
  • Your Head A-Splode: The way The Scarred One dies.

How well does it match the trope?
