The night before all-night Call of Duty 2 and you might be wondering about party favors, what you are going to bring to the dance. What I have for you is a list of the weapons and their descriptions. Chose wisely for some weapons will suit your situation better than others:
- M1903A4 Springfield: A powerful American bolt-action sniper rifle, slow to reload.
- Lee Enfield No.IV Mk.I: a British bolt-action rifle with good accuracy. Also comes in sniper (scoped) configuration.
- Mosin Nagant M1891/30: a highly accurate Soviet bolt-action rifle. Also comes in sniper (scoped) configuration.
- Mauser K98k : German bolt-action, slow-loading. Also comes in a sniper configuration.
- Tokarev SVT-40: Soviet magazine-fed rifle; fast rate of fire and reload, but less accurate.
- Gewehr 43: German magazine-fed rifle; fast rate of fire, but like the SVT-40 less accurate. Also comes in a sniper version.
- M1 Carbine: American magazine-fed rifle; underpowered in multiplayer, but with the highest magazine capacity and good accuracy
- M1 Garand: American clip-fed rifle; powerful. In-game, it cannot be reloaded unless the clip runs empty; real Garand rifles could be reloaded mid-clip, although it required engaging two functions of the rifle at once.
- Winchester M1897 Trench Gun: Powerful 12 gauge shotgun, available to all armies in multiplayer mode only, though frequently banned on PC servers.
Submachine & Machine Guns
- PPSh-41: Basic Soviet heavy submachine gun; powerful but inaccurate at range but very high rate of fire. The drum magazine makes the ammo supply in this weapon comparatively large; excellent for room-clearing and fans of the "spray-and-pray" school of marksmanship. Uses pistol ammo.
- PPS-42: Soviet submachine gun, more accurate than the PPSh.
- M1A1 Thompson: American submachine gun also used by the British. Very powerful but inaccurate at range. It has a 20-round magazine. Two or three rounds can kill, trying to make up for the magazine size.
- Sten Mk.II: British submachine gun. Not as powerful as the Thompson or PPSh, but more accurate with less kick.
- Bren: British support/light machine gun. Very powerful with good accuracy, but ammo is rare, and many players commit "Friendly Fire" to pick up ammo. Slow to reload and also to recover from a melee attack.
- M1918A2 BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle): American support/light machine gun; very powerful, relatively accurate, but ammunition is uncommon.
- MP40: German submachine gun. Relatively powerful with longer range and better accuracy than other SMGs, and a sight very easy to use. This gun is easily found and ammo is plentiful.
- Sturmgewehr 44: German support gun/"assault rifle"; very powerful, but ammunition is not as plentiful as for the MP40.
- TT-30: Soviet semi-automatic Pistol. Fast reload.
- M1911A1 Colt .45: American semi-automatic pistol.
- Luger P08: German semi-automatic pistol. More commonly encountered than other pistols.
- Webley Mk.IV: British six-shot revolver, extremely slow reload. One shot should ensure a kill. Ammo is extremely scarce.
- Mod.24 Stielhandgranate: German stick Grenade, relies on blast rather than fragmentation
- No. 36 Mills Grenade: British fragmentation hand grenade
- Mk.2 ‘Pineapple’ Grenade: American fragmentation hand grenade
- RGD-33 Grenade: Soviet fragmentation hand grenade
- Smoke grenades: Smoke grenade; provides cover
Come back Saturday night as I will be blogging the All-Nighter for as long as I can hold out! See you there!
