    1. Using This Guide
    ===============================================================================
    
    The primary function of this guide is to give you a listing of all the weapons
    (And other pieces of equipment in the game) and their capabilities. The weapons
    are separated into five categories, Rifleman Weapons, Support Weapons, Sniper
    Weapons, Demolitions Weapons and Secondary Weapons. The first four categories
    divide the weapons into which class can use them in _multiplayer_ and not
    single player, who can use each weapon in single player is listed under the
    info for each weapon. Secondary weapons are weapons that are in the secondary
    slot in a kit, who can use them is listed for each weapon. Under each weapon's
    name is the ammo capacity, which is how many bullets each magazine holds for
    that weapon, magazines which is how many total magazines you get for that
    weapon (Note: On Recruit you will get infinite), the fire modes for the weapon
    (The differences between them will be explained later) and who can use it. If
    the weapon has a grenade launcher attachment that you can use, which only the
    M16, OICW and AN-94 do, the grenade launcher's name will be listed next to the
    name of the weapon that uses it and the grenade capacity (How many grenades
    that can be loaded into it at once) and grenades, which is the total amount of
    grenades that come with it will be listed. For the sniper rifles the amount of
    zoom levels they have is listed, which is how many levels of zoom they have for
    clicking the right joystick. Information for secondary weapons will be listed
    in a similar way with notes on the weapon as well. Now, for a basic description
    of the fire modes: 
    Semi-auto/Semi-automatic - Fires one shot every time you pull the trigger
    Burst - Will fire a small burst of shots if you hold down the
    trigger, pull and release quickly to only fire one or two shots
    Automatic - Will fire as long as your have the trigger held down, provided that
    you have ammo, of course
    Bolt-action - Only on certain sniper rifles, after each shot your soldier has
    to operate a bolt on the rifle to clear the empty shell casing preventing you
    from firing multiple shots in succession

    5. Unlocking The Secret Weapons
    ===============================================================================
    
    At any time you can check your Dossier from the main menu to check to see which
    weapons you have unlocked and what you need to do to unlock the rest. What I
    have provided here is a list of the requirements for each weapon straight from
    the Dossier. Just start a Quick Mission on the mission and difficulty listed,
    complete the mission and at the end a message should tell you that you have
    unlocked the weapon, be sure to save afterwards!
