This tutorial shows you how to display weapon ammo details on your weapon itself using Scaleform and UnrealScript. With this technique you can create Doom 3 style ammo display.
First video shows Ammo count and maximum ammo amount showing on the weapon model (This can be used to create something similar to Doom 3 Weapon Ammo Display) using Scaleform. Second video is a very simple technique that shows In-Game video and External Video being played in weapon model (Using BINK).

In this example i have opened Actor.uc file. Once i select the word Actor and right click anywhere inside code editor i get extra 4 options.
When clicked on “Find files extended from Actor“, Unreal X-Editor will list all files extended from Actor.uc file. Double clicking on any name will open that file in new tab.
When clicked on “Find references for Actor“, Unreal X-Editor will list all references found for Actor.uc with line number. It will also show you the number of references found. Double clicking on any line number will open up that file in new tab and automatically navigates to the selected line.
When clicked on “Find usages for Actor“, Unreal X-Editor will list all usages found for Actor.uc with line number. It will also show you the number of usages found. Double clicking on any line number will open up that file in new tab and automatically navigates to the selected line.
In this tutorial i will show you how to create a weapon with Reload function. I will also show you how to create a ammo pickup that will add clips instead of ammo. Then we will create a custom Inventory Manager to track our ammo and tells the weapon to add clips if the maximum clips is lesser the current clips.
So lets get started.
