    Yup, this section is what this guide is all about, weapons! I'll cover as much 
    as I can about the weapons in the game. Not much else needs to be said... 
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    a. Semi-Automatic Rifles                                                 [0006]
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    Rifles that fire a large caliber bullet, have above average accuracy, and have 
    good range. A semi-automatic rifle can fire round after round without the need 
    for cocking. This is because of Newton's Third Law, for every action there is 
    an equal and opposite reaction. When the bullet is fired it cocks the rifle.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I. M1 Garand                                                             [0007]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    The standard rifle of the U.S. infantry during WWII. This rifle has good power,
    range, and accuracy. It is only semi-automatic, however, it still has a 
    perfectly capable fire rate. Use this rifle for any long range gun fight. It 
    can be used at close range if you can press the fire button quickly. Its only
    fault might be its 8-round clip, but that's ok for a rifle.
    
    Many believe the M1 Garand was one of the biggest contributors to the allied 
    victory of World War II. It was first designed by John C. Garand, a Canadian 
    who lived in the United States, and eventually proved itself enough to be mass 
    manufactured for immense use by US forces. It was used through both WWII and 
    the Korean Conflict until eventually being replaced by the M14 and the M16.

    Upgrade locations:
    ==================
    - (06) A Sallow Grave - As you jump out of the plane parachute towards the 
    windmill targeted with green smoke. If you land on top there will be an upgrade
    right there in front of you. If you don't land on top there is no other way to
    get the upgrade.
     
    
    - (09) Endgame - Parachute on top of the windmill targeted with green smoke and
    kill the German soldiers as you work your way out. When you get out head 
    towards the part of the beech marked with green smoke. look around and you will
    find the upgrade near a plane's wreckage.
     
    
    - (10) The Crucible - As you work your way through the tunnel kill the German
    soldiers and head straight. disregard the tunnel to your right and just head 
    straight. You will reach a dead end resulting in a room. The upgrade will be 
    right there in the small room. 
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    b. Bolt-Action Rifles                                                    [0008]
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    A rifle that requires you to cock it after each round fired. They have 
    excellent accuracy and great range. They also fire a large bullet. These guns 
    are most useful for sniping, not close quarters. 
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I. Kar98                                                                 [0009]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Another German rifle, but this one is bolt-action. Bolt-action rifles are great
    for accuracy and precision, but they lack the fire rate that a mobile soldier
    needs. Use this rifle for long range sniper situations. Just don't use it for
    assaulting an enemy position, it won't help much. It also can only hold 5 
    rounds a clip, which means more vulnerable reload sessions.
    
    First produced in 1898 by the Germans, the Kar98 was an aging, bolt-action
    rifle, being outclassed by semi-auto and assault rifles. It was used through 
    both World Wars. It was extremely accurate, but at the cost of a bolt-action
    loading system. It may also be known as the Mauser 98, Mauser being the 
    producer.

    Small guns that can fire in full auto. You can see them as pistols that can 
    fire in full auto or as small machine guns. These guns are great for unloading 
    on groups of enemies. They don't have much range, accuracy, or power, but they
    do have high fire rates so use them for close quarters combat.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I. Thompson                                                              [0011]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    The famed American sub-machinegun is, of course, in another WWII FPS. Its an ok
    weapon in this game. Its got all the standard abilities of a sub-machinegun, 
    but with more power. I love using this weapon just because I love it in real 
    life. Its great for taking out clumps of enemies from their flank. 
    
    John T. Thompson began his company by buying John Blish's design of the soon to
    be M1A1 Thompson in 1916. The first Thompson experimental submachine gun 
    appeared in 1919, and first production model appeared in 1921; it was 
    manufactured under contract by Colt Firearms Manufacturing Co, as well as later
    M1928 models. Production of M1928A1 and M1 submachine guns were carried out by 
    Auto-Ordnance and Savage, and some licensed copies were manufactured by B.S.A. 
    in Great Britain. The first Thompson gun to see some military use was Model 
    1928, used by the US Navy during its expedition in Nicaragua. This military 
    test proved the Thompson to be a very useful weapon.

    Round Size: .45 caliber
    Rounds Carried: 30/120 or 50/100
    
    
    Upgrade Locations:
    ==================
    - (01) Off Target - As you fall out of the plane immediately head left and land
    on the cliff. Once you land kill the Italian soldier "guarding" the upgrade and
    pick it up. If you don't land on the cliff by parachuting, there will be no 
    other way to get the upgrade.
     
    
    - (02) Der Bunker - When you get close to a big building guarded by snipers and
    MG42s you will come upon a small building in front of it. Go inside and you 
    will see the upgrade on top of the counter. When you get inside there won't be 
    any German soldiers, but MG42 fire will be coming through all the windows so 
    try to crawl to the upgrade.
     
    
    - (07) Haunted - At the middle of the level you will come across a large cement
    bunker guarded by MG42s and has AAA on top. Enter the bunker and kill the  
    German soldiers. Before you head up stairs to the top, go to the front of the 
    bunker where the MG42s were mounted and look to your right and you will see the
    upgrade.

    II. MP40                                                                 [0012]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    The standard German sub-machinegun, its got very high fire rate capabilities, 
    but at the cost of a low powered bullet. Good though, with its 32 round 
    magazine. Use it only at close range because it really lacks at power at a 
    close range. Good weapon, but be aware of its advantages and disadvantages.
    
    Before the start of WWII, Germany was in need of a compact sub-machine gun. The
    MP40 was the solution to this problem. First produced by the German gun company
    Erfurter Maschinenfabrik Gmbh (Trade name Erma), it was called the MP38; M for 
    machine, P for pistol, and 38 for model of 1938. The improved version came out 
    in 1940, being called MP40, obviously. This weapon was mainly given to officers
    or vehicle operators because of its compact size.

    ===============================================================================
    
    
    Guns that fire rifle bullets in full auto. They are great for mowing down 
    squads of enemies. They are very useful in all situations. 
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I. BAR                                                                   [0014]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    This is a very powerful, American automatic rifle. The BAR, aka Browning 
    Automatic Rifle, is a great weapon in this game. Its probably the third best 
    weapon in the game. I love its power for a machine gun, it far out classes any 
    sub-machine gun in this game. Use it in any situation, it'll work anywhere.
    
    The Browning Automatic Rifle was designed by the famous American arms designer 
    John Moses Browning late in the First World War, on the request from the US 
    Expeditionary corps in Europe. It fired the large caliber 7.62x63mm round, as 
    used in the M1 Garand. This machine gun weighed twice as much as the Garand
    though, and had a tremendous recoil, making it hard for the weapon user to 
    manage in combat.

    The best weapon in the game, in my opinion, is the StG44. Developed and 
    manufactured by the Germans, this is the first assault rifle to ever be
    produced. It uses a bullet in between the size of a pistol and a rifle. I would
    use it on any mission you get the option to. Its just a great weapon, use it, 
    love it.
    
    This weapon, known as a world's first assault rifle, was developed in Germany 
    during the Second World War. Hitler first did not approve of this new class of 
    weapons, so it had to be tested under the name of MP, or Machine Pistol (In 
    English). Once a first prototype was constructed, it was tested in front of 
    Hitler, and to make a long story short, he was dazzled and ordered them to make
    more.

    The MG42 was the standard LMG of the Germans during WWII. It has very good 
    capabilities and a crazy high rate of fire. They are mounted to sandbags, 
    barrels, boxes... so you can't carry them. Use them if you find them.
    
    With adoption of the MG34 machine gun the Wehrmacht had the weapon that was 
    certainly capable in combat. The MG34 bears the distinction of being the first 
    practical, general purpose machine gun. While the MG34 was good, it certainly 
    was not ideal. German experts wanted their machine guns to fire faster, while 
    being simpler and less costly. A high rate of fire was desirable both for AA 
    applications and for flanking fire against targets moving through the 
    battlefield. The answer was the MG42; cheap, powerful, blazing fire rate, and 
    user friendly. The MG42 soon became the primary machine gun and saw combat 
    until the war's end.

    This is your multi purpose rocket launcher. It can take out tanks, troop 
    emplacements, anything that needs to be destroyed. It takes about 3 to 4 rounds
    to take out a tank. You'll know when to use it.
    
    The bazooka weapon was one of the first anti-tank weapons based on the HEAT 
    shell to enter service, used by the United States Armed Forces in World War II 
    and the Korean Conflict. It was nicknamed "bazooka" from a vague resemblance to
    the musical instrument of the same name. In addition to an actual bazooka, the 
    term bazooka is often used to refer to all shoulder mounted tube weapons such 
    as RPGs.

    Rifles that fire a large caliber bullet, have above average accuracy, and have 
    good range. A semi-automatic rifle can fire round after round without the need 
    for cocking. This is because of Newton's third law, for every action there is 
    an equal and opposite reaction. When the bullet is fired it cocks the rifle.

    The standard rifle of the U.S. infantry during WWII. This rifle has good power,
    range, and accuracy. It is only semi-automatic, however, it still has a 
    perfectly capable fire rate. Use this rifle for any long range gun fight. It 
    can be used at close range if you can press the fire button quickly. Its only
    fault might be its 8-round clip, but that's ok for a rifle.
    
    Many believe the M1 Garand was one of the biggest contributors to the allied 
    victory of World War II. It was first designed by John C. Garand, a Canadian 
    who lived in the United States, and eventually proved itself enough to be mass 
    manufactured for immense use by US forces. It was used through both WWII and 
    the Korean Conflict until eventually being replaced by the M14 and the M16.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    This German semi-automatic rifle is very similar to the M1 in many ways. Its
    great overall and it can hold two more rounds per clip. May not seem like much,
    but trust me, it comes in handy. 
    
    The Gewehr 43 was the first German semi-automatic rifle to be put into service.
    Hitler wasn't interested in the production of a semi-auto weapon, he was more
    towards the Kar98 and other bolt-action rifles. Because of this, it became 
    mainly a German specialists weapon during the War. Those who used this weapon 
    were highly trained, and knew this weapon head-to-toe.

    Small guns that can fire in full auto. You can see them as pistols that can 
    fire in full auto or as small machine guns. These guns are great for unloading 
    on groups of enemies. They don't have much range, accuracy, or power, but they
    do have high fire rates so use them for close quarters combat.

    The famed American sub-machinegun is, of course, in another WWII FPS. Its an ok
    weapon in this game. Its got all the standard abilities of a sub-machinegun, 
    but with more power. I love using this weapon just because I love it in real 
    life. Its great for taking out clumps of enemies from their flank. 
    
    John T. Thompson began his company by buying John Blish's design of the soon to
    be M1A1 Thompson in 1916. The first Thompson experimental submachine gun 
    appeared in 1919, and first production model appeared in 1921; it was 
    manufactured under contract by Colt Firearms Manufacturing Co, as well as later
    M1928 models. Production of M1928A1 and M1 submachine guns were carried out by 
    Auto-Ordnance and Savage, and some licensed copies were manufactured by B.S.A. 
    in Great Britain. The first Thompson gun to see some military use was Model 
    1928, used by the US Navy during its expedition in Nicaragua. This military 
    test proved the Thompson to be a very useful weapon.

    The standard German sub-machinegun, its got very high fire rate capabilities, 
    but at the cost of a low powered bullet. Good though, with its 32 round 
    magazine. Use it only at close range because it really lacks at power at a 
    close range. Good weapon, but be aware of its advantages and disadvantages.
    
    Before the start of WWII, Germany was in need of a compact sub-machine gun. The
    MP40 was the solution to this problem. First produced by the German gun company
    Erfurter Maschinenfabrik Gmbh (Trade name Erma), it was called the MP38; M for 
    machine, P for pistol, and 38 for model of 1938. The improved version came out 
    in 1940, being called MP40, obviously. This weapon was mainly given to officers
    or vehicle operators because of its compact size.

    This is a very powerful, American automatic rifle. The BAR, aka Browning 
    Automatic Rifle, is a great weapon in this game. Its probably the third best 
    weapon in the game. I love its power for a machine gun, it far out classes any 
    sub-machine gun in this game. Use it in any situation, it'll work anywhere.

    My favorite pistol ever, the M1911 was first manufactured in 1911, and is still
    seen in use today. That proves something about how good it is. Its got above
    average abilities in every category for a pistol, and it has excellent power 
    for a pistol. Use it like any other weapon, it can do the job.
    
    The Colt .45. Also known as the M1911 (Pronounced Em - Nineteen - Eleven). The 
    M1911 was made in 1911 by John M. Browning. It was standard issue from 1911 to 
    1985, and is still used today by some U.S. forces. The M1911 was one of the 
    first semi-automatic pistols. It uses the recoil of the bullet fired to eject 
    the shell and load in the next round. The M1911 fires the .45 ACP round, which 
    is favored for its high stopping power. It has a muzzle velocity of 800 ft/s 
    and is effective up to 75 yards.

    ***** Got any questions? If you do you can E-mail them to me and I will answer
    them in this Guide. ***** 
    
    
    Q: Is every weapon on every level?
    A: No, some weapons are on different levels.
     
    
    Q: Do the weapons carry on to the next level?
    A: No.
     
    
    Q: How do I acquire the "Weapon Expert" medals?
    A: Obtain all the weapons in each level.
     
    
    Q: To get the "Weapon Expert" medal do I have to use each weapon?
    A: No, you only have to pick it up. Then you can change it back.
     
    
    Q: May upgrades be placed on rifles other than the ones specified?
    A: No, they are only available on the Thompson and M1 Garand. 
     
    
    Q: How long do the upgrades last?
    A: They last until the end of the level, then they get reset.
     
    
    Q: Are the upgrades available on every mission?
    A: No, they are only available on certain missions.
     
    
    Q: Do I have to find the upgrades, or are they available from the start?
    A: You have to find the upgrades during a mission. 
     
    
    Q: Are the upgrades hard to find?
    A: It depends, some are hard and some aren't.
     
    
    Q: Your guide says the upgrade is on the tower/cliff, why can't I get to it?
    A: Sometimes the upgrades can only be acquired by parachuting to it.
     
    
    Q: You say I have to parachute to it, but I don't understand how to?
    A: It took me a while to understand also. Just practice a few times.
     
    
    Q: I got the scope for the Garand. How do I take it off?
    A: Simply press directional button down. 
     
    
    Q: I took it off, but how do I put it back on?
    A: Just press directional button up.
     
    
    Q: How do I make the scope zoom in?
    A: Hold L1 and press directional button up.
     
    
    Q: How do I make the scope zoom out?
    A: Hold L1 and press directional button down.
     
    
    Q: I got the drum magazine for the Thompson, can I switch it back?
    A: No, it is permanent until the level ends.  
     
    
    Q: I found an upgrade that you don't have, what do I do?
    A: Please e-mail me. But really it is up to you, you don't have to.
     
    
    Q: Are the upgrades needed to acquire the "Weapon Expert" medals? 
    A: No, the upgrades are only there for, "performance enhancing" reasons.
    
    
    Q: Why can't I get the Thompson on the mission: (06) A Shallow Grave
    A: This is kind of a glitch... When you reach the area where you pass the 
          house, but haven't gone into the trench leading to the windmill, look 
          around and you might see a Thompson, the reason you won't see it 
          sometimes is because one of your men has to die. When he dies he drops 
          his Thompson and that's why it doesn't work most of the time -- If it 
          doesn't work there is nothing you can do other than to start the mission 
          over.
