***************************
I. I N T R O D U C T I O N
***************************

I really, really wanted to write a Complete FAQ/Walkthrough for Max Payne, and
I had even started it. But as there were a lot of other guides already out, my
chances of getting it posted were slim. So I began including a lot of details 
in the walkthrough, and as the game is already so big, the guide became even 
bigger, and so, I gave up writing.

Then I realized that all the information that I had written up for the weapons
could well be made into a weapons guide. So that's how this guide came into 
existence. My aim is of course to somehow get my name associated with Max 
Payne, which IMHO is the greatest game ever.

Now, I must warn all you people that I am no expert on weapons. So, I would 
not be able to tell you about the real life name, history, model etc. of the 
weapons. I would just be giving you some plain info about the weapons as they
appear in the game, and what I think about them. 

I must warn you again, that this FAQ contains some horrible ASCII by me. Don't
read further if you think your eyes might melt. Also, please send in any info 
you think should be here, so that this guide gets better.

==============================================================================

******************
II. W E A P O N S
******************

Max Payne carries a wide variety of weapons under his coat (I wonder how it 
all fills in there). His weapon arsenal consists mainly of different types of
guns. The maximum ammo that he can carry for each weapon is limited. The 
efficiency of each weapon increases many times if used at the right place. 
Also, shoot the enemies in the head, it always does way more damage. The 
weapons in Max Payne can be divided into the following six categories. I will
describe each weapon in the following format:

ASCII Representation: A pathetic try to draw the weapon.

Clip capacity   : The ammo in clip used in with weapon.

Max ammo        : The maximum total ammo that can be carried at a time.

Ammo type       : The type of ammo used in the weapon.

Range           : The preferred range of use (its a matter of opinion)

RoF             : The rate of fire (slow/moderate/fast/very fast)

Shoot dodge     : The availability of shoot dodge.

Description: The appearance of the weapon.

Use: The way the weapon is meant to be used.

Found: Where the weapon is found (usually just the first appearance)

Notes: Anything special I want to say.

Reader's notes: Anything you send to me.

==============================================================================

*******************************
III. M E L E E   W E A P O N S
*******************************

These are to be used up close to the enemy, but in this game, you won't find 
many places where you will be able to sneak up on an enemy. These are powerful
weapons nonetheless, and can take out the enemy in a single hit. They are best
used to break open small crates and boxes, which may hold ammo or other stuff.
Your enemies will not commonly use these, with the exception of a single thug 
in Part 1, Chapter 7. These weapons are equipped by pressing 1.

Ammo type       : N/A

Range           : Very short

RoF             : moderate

Shoot dodge     : No

Description: This is a piece of metal, which Max can swing to kill his enemies
or to break open small boxes of ammo.
 
Use: It can only be used to kill someone by being very close to him, and to 
do that, they should not be aware of your presence.

Found: You automatically have one in Part 1, Chapter 1.

Notes: It is weaker than the Baseball bat, and so I use it only when I don't 
have the later.

Range           : very short

Rof             : moderate

Shoot dodge     : No

Description: Its made up of wood, its cylindrical, and the dia of the handle
is less than the dia of the body.

Use: It can be used to play the American sport of Baseball, apart from 
knocking bad guys in the head. Max swings the bat twice when used, and is 
enough to take down any enemy, excluding the bosses of course.

Found: You can get it in Part 1, Prologue, and then again in Part 2, 
Chapter 1. 

Notes: I prefer it over the Lead pipe, because it seems to do more damage.

These includes various types of handguns, and are effective over short, medium
and long ranges, thus making them an all purpose weapon. Their ammo is easily
available and these guns would be available to you right from the beginning of
the game. Later on, when the enemies become tougher to kill, you would like to
use other bigger, better guns, but you can always trust the handguns when the
ammo for other guns is scarce.

Ammo type       : Beretta ammo

Range           : short-medium-long

Rof             : fast

Shoot dodge     : Yes

Description: It's a 9 mm handgun which is black in colour.

Use: It does the least damage among all the guns. But what it lacks in power, 
it makes up in terms of accuracy. It's very accurate and useful in all ranges,
and the ammo is available in plenty.

Found: You have it from the start. Max draws it out first in Part 1, Prologue 
and then again in Part 1, Chapter 1.

Notes: You won't be using this much, not because its not good, but because 
twice of this goodness is available (see below).

Ammo type       : Beretta ammo

Range           : short-medium-long

Rof             : very fast

Shoot dodge     : Yes

Description: You carry two of the Beretta's, one in each hand.

Use: Apart from all the advantages of the Beretta, the dual Beretta also has 
what is called suppression fire (I am not being very original here). What it 
means is that you can hit a larger number of enemies and also continuously hit
them without, giving them any chance to shoot you, until they are dead.

Found: In Chapter 1, Prologue you can pick up another Beretta from a junkie 
you killed to get the dual Beretta's.

Notes: This weapon rules. It's very effective and the bullets are easily 
available, not to mention that Max looks ultra cool while firing them.

Ammo type       : Desert eagle ammo

Range           : short-medium-long

RoF             : fast

Shoot dodge     : Yes

Description: The Desert Eagle, looks like the Beretta, but is silver in 
colour.

Use: The most powerful and accurate handgun, it sends the victim flying 
backwards. Too bad the ammo is not easily available and also the Max ammo 
carrying capacity is also too little. It is very accurate even at long ranges

Found: Part 1, Chapter 1. Kill the two thugs at the beginning and they will 
drop it.

Notes: This would have been my most used weapon, had it not been for the 
scarcity of ammo.

V. S H O T G U N S
*******************

The shotguns are usually my favorite weapon in all the games. They represent 
power and are really fun to use. But in this game, they are not my favorite 
weapon. You can read below to find out why. Note that the shells which these 
shotguns use spread in the air, so they should not at all be used at long 
ranges, it would be a wastage of ammo.

Ammo type       : Shotgun ammo

Range           : short-medium

RoF             : moderate

Shoot dodge     : Yes

Description: It's a small shotgun and is pretty close to a handgun itself. Max
uses it with one hand, just like the handguns.

Use: It can only hold 2 shells at a time, which means you will have to reload 
after 2 shots. Now this could be very dangerous if you are facing more than 
one enemy, which is mostly the case.

Found: Part 1, Chapter 1. Can't remember the exact location though. 

Notes: As the Pump-action and Sawed-off share ammo, I think its wiser to use 
the former. Although, against single enemy, you should go for Sawed-off.

Range           : short-medium

Shoot dodge     : Yes

Description: Now this is the shotgun most of us know. It's long and double 
barreled.

Use: Very nice gun, pretty powerful. Although it can hold 7 shells, Max still
needs some time between two shots. This is not much of a problem otherwise, 
but it surely is not an ideal weapon to use while shootdodging, as you would 
only be able to shoot once or twice.

Found: Part 1, Prologue in the closet in the room with the phone. Again in 
Part 1, Chapter 1, you find it on many enemies.

Notes: My most used shotgun, because you get the Jackhammer late in the game.

Description: Does not looks like your usual shotguns, but the design is still

Use: The best shotgun, as you get to fire 12 shots non-stop. Especially good 
against the bosses, they won't even be able to react as you fill them with 
lead. The downside is that you get it late in the game and also the ammo is 
not really plentiful. Save it for the time you really need it.

Found: You first get the Jackhammer in Part III, Chapter Four: Backstabbing 
Bastard, from the guy that comes towards you after he gets out of the crashed 
sports car that B.B. was in before, which is also on the same floor that B.B. 
is on when you have to kill him.

These contains two guns, Ingram and colt commando. Both are great guns, but 
you don't get much of them in Part 1 and 2. Good thing that so does your 
enemies. In Part 3, you will find the Colt being used by most of the enemies.
I don't really know why they are called automatics. If someone knows, I would
be glad if you tell me. 

Many people answered this. Choose the one you like best ^_^.
 
"NeoSquid2" <NeoSquid2@aol.com> 
They're automatic becuase they automatically load the bullet into the chamber.
(allowing you to hold down the trigger.) Manual would be cocking the hammer 
back. Semiautomatic is when you pressing the trigger puts the next bullet into
position. (fires faster than manual, but you can't hold down the trigger.) 

"Chad Nash" <caine1900@hotmail.com> 
It's because they fire automatically the moment you pul the trigger instead of 
having to repeatedly pull the trigger you pull and hold and it 
"automatically" 
fires the weapon.

"Stephen Rintoul" <SRintoul@nc.rr.com> 
An automatic weapon's trigger does not need to be repeatedly pressed for 
multiple shots, making them shoot faster.  This is only consequential to 
players of Max Payne in that the automatic weapons have a higher rate of 
fire.  Max's fingers don't have to repeatedly pull the trigger for every 
individual bullet that is fired.

"Will Russell" <BronzeFish609@msn.com> 
Weapons like the Colt and Ingram work with mechanical firing mechanisms that 
fire continuously when the trigger is pressed down: they fire automatically. 
Hence the title "automatics." The difference from Semi-Automatic weapons is 
that the trigger must be pressed for a bullet or burst of bullets to be 
released.

"Ray" <rac@sympatico.ca>
The term "Automatic" has meant different things for firearms through-outthe 
years.  The first incarnation I can find for it is to describe themechanism 
for what was later called "Double-Action" Revolvers (That isRevolvers that did 
not require the hammer to be cocked before pulling thetrigger to shoot, it was 
"Automatically" cocked by pulling the trigger.).The next time it was paraded 
around, was for "Automatic Loading" weapons,what are now called "Semi-
Automatic", the primitive predecesors of theBeretta and Desert Eagle in Max 
Payne (Which included everyone's favoriteGerman Pistol, the Luger P'08!!!.).  
After the development of the MachineGun (And, later, Sub-Machine Gun, Machine 
Pistol, and Assult Rifle), theterm "Automatic" now is meant as the short form 
of "Fully Automatic", whichmeans that, as long as the shooter has his finger 
holding down the trigger,the weapon will fire until he runs out of ammo, or 
until he releases it.

    In addition, the Pancor Jackhammer is classed as a "CAWS" (Close 
AssultWeapons System, a Fully-Automatic Shotgun in other words), the Ingram's 
are"Sub-Machine Guns" (Or SMGs, which are Fully-Automatic Weapons that 
firePistol Cartridges), and the Colt Commando is an "Assult Rifle" 
(Well,actually, an "Assult Carbine" due to it's barrel length, but close 
enough.).

Clip capacity   : 50

Max ammo        : 300

Ammo type       : Ingram ammo

Range           : short

Rof             : fast

Shoot dodge     : Yes

Description: It's the same as the Uzi (made famous by a British Pyramid 
roaming, Tomb raiding female video game character). 

Use: The suppression fire effect, explained under the dual Beretta's is at 
work in this gun too. It is very inaccurate over long ranges and you would be 
wasting your precious ammo if you use it that way.

Found: You find the ingram first after the barfight as you kill Rico Muerte,
Chapter 4 part 2 to be exact.
(thanks to "Mo Niehaus" <mjniehaus@comcast.net> for this info)

Notes: Why would you use one when you can use two?

Clip capacity   : 100

Max ammo        : 300

Ammo type       : Ingram ammo

Range           : short

RoF             : very fast

Shoot dodge     : Yes

Description: Just like the dual Beretta's, Max carries one Ingram in each 
hand.

Use: Suppression fire at its peak. It fires a really large number of bullets 
in a short period of time. But this also means you could be out of ammo soon,
so reload often. The only reason not to use it over the Ingram is that it 
seems the Ingram has slightly better accuracy then the dual Ingram's.

Found: After you pick up another Ingram, you would be able to select the dual
Ingram. 

Notes: I love this weapon very much.

Clip capacity   : 30

Max ammo        : 150

Ammo type       : Colt Commando ammo

Range           : short-medium-long

Rof             : fast

Shoot dodge     : Yes

Description: It is the equivalent of guns like M16 etc. Looks great.

Use: All the positive things of the Desert Eagle, but with a better RoF and 
higher clip capacity, this gun is truly a gift from God. Very accurate and 
well suited for long ranges. Aim for the head.

Found: Part 2, Chapter 3. You get it after you have killed Boris Dime. 

Notes: My favorite weapon of the game.

*****************************************

The Molotov and the grenade are the two throw able weapons of the game, and 
they are best suited to take out either enemies not directly in your line of 
fire or those which are grouped together. You don't really throw the M79, but
you do use it to throw a grenade. All these weapons are not to be used close 
to you, or you will be hurt.

Ammo Type       : N/A

Range           : far away from you

Rof             : N/A

Shoot dodge     : No

Description: Its a dark, glass bottle with a cloth coming out from the top.

Use: Max throws the bottle, which explodes when it comes in contact with 
anything, and the fire spreads. Good for taking out enemies in a group and in 
closed areas. Of course, its a projectile, so use it carefully, it might 
collide with something close to you and explode.

Found: Err, can't remember. I would write it the next time I play the game, or
if someone sends it to me.

Notes: Toasty!

Shoot dodge     : No

Description: Its your usual hand grenade, round and black.

Use: Its great to use against hidden enemies, or enemies waiting for you 
around the corner. Just throw it diagonally, and it will rebound off the wall 
(remember, angle of incidence=angle of reflection, acc. to Physics) and may 
land straight at the enemies feet.

Found: Err, can't remember. I would write it the next time I play the game, or
if someone sends it to me.

Notes: BOOM!

Reader's Notes: 
"Joshua Overmiller" <joverm1@gl.umbc.edu> 
A good use for the grenade is for clearing the laser tripwire mines that you 
cannot shoot directly. For instance, throwing a grenade around a corner to 
disarm a mine.

Ammo type       : M79 ammo

Range           : far away from you

RoF             : very slow

Shoot Dodge     : Yes

Description: Unlike the usual RPG's, it has thick barrel and a wooden handle.

Use: Use it against either a group of thugs or a single boss which are far 
away from you. The grenade travels straight and slow, and you don't get to use
it much. I think this weapon just does not belongs to the game.

Found: Part 2, Chapter 5, in the Don's Manor. 

Notes: Nothing looks better than the grenade flying in slo-mo.

What shooting game would be complete without a Sniper Rifle. Although there 
are not too many places to use it, but then you also don't have too much ammo
for it anyway.

Ammo type       : Sniper rifle ammo

Range           : very long

Rof             : slow

Shoot dodge     : No

Description: A sniper rifle, with a long barrel and a scope.

Use: Of course this is used to snipe people far away from you. Use the 'Use' 
key to activate the Zoom feature of the Sniper Rifle, and keep it pressed to 
zoom further. The coolest thing about this is the 'Bullet Cam', which is 
activated when you successfully shoot a target. 

Found: Part 2, Chapter 3. I think you find it next to the note saying 'Mayor'.

Notes: This is my favorite Sniper Rifle in the game. Hey wait! This is the 
only one. ^_^
