Console Commands

 

To bring up the UT2003 console, press the ~ (tilde) key. To close the console press the ~ key again. You can type a range of commands in the console to perform tweaks, change settings or look at information. I have included a full list of console commands below, with a brief description of what each does. Note that many of these commands can be changed using the in-game settings screens and also in the .ini files.

 

Note that as of patch version 2166 Demo recording/playback has been enabled in UT2003, using the console commands shown below. Older versions do not allow demos.

Adrenalin and Special Moves

 

UT2003 introduces a range of special moves which can be performed by your character under certain circumstances. Some require that you have 100 Adrenalin. Others, like the Dodging moves require that you have the Dodge setting ticked (See In-game Settings section). A list is provided below:

 

Adrenalin

 

You can get Adrenalin by picking up the red and white pills scattered throughout the levels, or by achieving kills. Once your Adrenalin reaches 100, you will be allowed to perform one of the following special moves, the effects of which will only last for a while:

 

Speed - forward, forward, forward, forward

 

Regen - back, back, back, back

 

Invisibility - right, right, left, left

 

Berserk - forward, forward, back, back

 

Special Moves

 

These can be performed at any time, but require a fair bit of practice and skill to master. Remember, you need to activate the Dodge setting to use the dodge moves.

 

Double Jump - Jump and then press jump again in the arc of the jump.

 

Dodge - Tap Left, right, forward or back twice.

 

Dodge Jump - Perform a dodge, and jump just before you lose your air.

 

Wall Jump - Run alongside a wall, dodge (double tap) into it and as you're about to hit it, quickly dodge away from it.

 

Goo Jump - Shoot some goo from the Biorifle, get a shield up using the shield gun, jump just when goo explodes (You can also use the shield gun to bounce energy weapons, break your fall and of course block normal weapons.)

 

Lift Jump - Jump while on a lift to get an extra boost.

 

Death from Above - If you jump from a great height and land on someone you'll cause them damage.
