Gamepost heeft een preview van Q3 Arena in elkaar geplakt. Hier heb je een stuk:
When a shot is fired that does damage to an enemy, an unobtrusive, yet very noticeable sound is played to alert you that your shot hit home. Centre your cross - hairs on a player and their name is displayed on your HUD. Very useful to find and prey on the last-placed player, and to avoid the top player. When you frag someone a message appears on your HUD in a large font, notifying you who killed whom. Whenever you switch to a different weapon, a list of icons appears on the lower half of your HUD showing you all the weapons you currently possess. You will also see if you have ammo for that weapon. You will also be able to cycle through the weapons in a similar way to task switching using alt/tab in windows 95/98/NT. When your console is lowered or you are typing a message, a small chat icon appears above the head of your player. This alerts other players that you're typing, and hopefully stops them trying to kill you at that point.
