   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
1) ^^^^^^^^^^ Using your weapon ^^^^^^^^^^
   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 
Before you read my FAQ I suggest you get to know how to use the weapons.
 
Click -R3- to use the iron sights. Press -R1- to fire your weapon. Press -[]- 
to reload. Press -O- to perform a melee attack. Press -R2- to switch weapons
(you can only carry two weapons at a time). Press -/\- to throw a grenade. 

 
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
1a) ^^^^^^^^^^ Weapon tactics ^^^^^^^^^^
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 
It is also good to know when to use the right kind of weapon.
 
Use bolt action rifles and semi auto rifles to suppress the enemy or snipe 
them. When they become suppressed switch your weapon to a sub-machine gun or 
infantry heavy machine gun. Then go to their flank and fire like crazy. Use 
grenades when you can't flank the enemy.

    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
----------------------
----- Grease Gun -----
----------------------
 
Pros:
- fully automatic
- high fire rate
 
Cons:
- not accurate
 
Bullet size: .45 caliber
Bullet capacity: 20/140
 
Notes:
Effective at flank attacks, but only 20 rounds causes you to run out of ammo 
quickly. Try to use it at close range. It is only available during one mission 
later on in the game (assuming that your "brothers" never die during the story)
 
--------------------
----- Thompson -----
--------------------
 
Pros:
- fully automatic
- high fire rate
 
Cons:
- not accurate
 
Bullet size: .45 caliber
Bullet capacity: 20/140
 
Notes:
Very similar to the Grease Gun, but is available more often. It has double the 
rate of fire and is a bit less accurate
 
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
2b) <<<<<<<<<< Semi-automatic rifles >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
----------------------
----- M1 Carbine -----
----------------------
 
Pros:
- semi automatic
- high fire rate
- accurate
 
Cons:
- small rifle bullet
 
Bullet size: 7.62x33 mm
Bullet capacity: 15/75
 
Notes:
Them M1 Carbine is a semi-auto rifle that has a higher rate of fire than a lot
of automatic machine guns. The quicker you can repeatedly press the -R1- button
the more rounds you can get off, but don't treat it like a machine gun or 
you'll be out of ammo quickly. It has good accuracy also. The only let down is 
that the enemy can take a few rounds before they die.   
 
---------------------
----- M1 Garand -----
---------------------
 
Pros:
- semi automatic
- good fire rate
- accurate
 
Cons:
- nothing, one of the best guns in the game
 
Bullet size: 7.62x63 mm
Bullet capacity: 8/88
 
Notes:
Ahh, the famous M1 Garand. This is my rifle of choice throughout the hole game.
The fire rate is good for a rifle and its more accurate than the M1 Carbine. 
The bullet is large so it takes the enemy out relatively early. If I was in 
WWII, this would be the weapon I would take. 
 
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
2c) <<<<<<<<<< Infantry heavy machine guns >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
---------------
----- BAR -----
---------------
 
Pros:
- fully automatic
- good fire rate
- semi accurate
 
Cons:
- nothing, one of the best guns in the game
 
Bullet size: 7.62x63 mm
Bullet capacity: 20/240
 
Notes:
By the time The U.S. entered WWII this weapon was already 40 years old, yet, it
is one of the best machine guns you could have. It uses the same bullet as the 
M1 Garand, but can go full auto. This gun is going to stop anything in your 
path. In the game a combination of the BAR and Garand makes you a force to be 
reckoned with.
 
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
2d) <<<<<<<<<< Mounted heavy machine guns >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
---------------------------------------------------
----- Browning .50 caliber (mounted on tanks) -----
---------------------------------------------------
 
Pros:
- fully automatic 
- high fire rate
- endless ammo (it says 400 hundred, but it is endless)
 
Cons:
- can't take it with you
 
Bullet size: .50 caliber
Bullet capacity: endless
 
Notes:
Endless ammo, .50 caliber, and mounted on a tank. What else needs to be said.
When you have a tank get on it, but then exit the .50. Now stay on top and 
order you tank to go somewhere. Its a mobile MG nest.  
 
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
2e) <<<<<<<<<< Grenades >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
---------------------------
----- A1 Mark 11 Frag -----
---------------------------
 
Pros:
- good blast radius
 
Cons:
- enemies can run away from them
- if you are next to the blast you get wounded
- no crosshairs
 
Notes:
I barely ever used grenades in the game. The only time to use one is if the 
enemy cannot run away from it. Throwing them in a mortar hole infested with 
the enemy works well though.

    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
3a) <<<<<<<<<< Sub-machine guns >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
----------------
----- MP40 -----
----------------
 
Pros:
- fully automatic 
- high fire rate
- large bullet capacity
 
Cons:
- very inaccurate
 
Bullet size: 9x19 mm
Bullet capacity: 32/224
 
Notes:
This is the least accurate weapon in the game, but it makes up for that with a 
high fire rate and 32 rounds per mag. Stand ten feet away from a wall and 
shoot. The bullets spread 3 feet wide. Great weapon for flanking because of 
this.
 
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
3b) <<<<<<<<<< Bolt action rifles >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
---------------
----- K98 -----
---------------
 
Pros:
- extremely accurate
 
Cons:
- bolt action
- slow fire rate
 
Bullet size: 7.92x57 mm
Bullet capacity: 5/65
 
Notes:
This German bolt action rifle was used in both World Wars. In contrast to the 
MP40, the K98, often called the Kar98, is the most accurate weapon in the game.
If you want to make some head shots or there is no flanking the enemy, snipe 
them with this. 
 
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
3c) <<<<<<<<<< Infantry heavy machine guns >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
----------------
----- MP44 -----
----------------
 
Pros:
- fully automatic
- high fire rate
- semi accurate
- first assault rifle ever
 
Cons:
- smallish bullet
 
Bullet size: 7.92x33 mm
Bullet capacity: 30/210 
 
Notes:
This weapon is a mixture of a rifle and a sub-machine gun. It is often called 
the first assault rifle ever. Its a good all around weapon.
 
----------------
----- FG42 -----
----------------
 
Pros:
- fully automatic
- high fire rate
- semi accurate
 
Cons:
- nothing, one of the best guns in the game
 
Bullet size: 7.92x57 mm
Bullet capacity: 30/200
 
Notes:
This weapon is quite similar to the BAR. They both have similar bullets, fire 
rates, and accuracy, but the FG42 holds 10 more round per mag. That feature can
make a huge difference. The downside is you don't see it for a while.
 
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
3d) <<<<<<<<<< Mounted heavy machine guns >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
----------------
----- MG42 -----
----------------
 
Pros:
- fully automatic
- high fire rate
- endless ammo
 
Cons:
- can't take it with you 
 
Bullet size: 7.92x57 mm
Bullet capacity: endless
 
Notes:
Like the .50 cal, but has a smaller bullet and is more often shooting at you.
Also its not mounted on a tank that can move.
 
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
3e) <<<<<<<<<< RPGs (Rocket Propelled Grenades) >>>>>>>>>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
-----------------------
----- Panzerfaust -----
-----------------------
 
Pros:
- takes out tanks
- kills men behind cover
 
Cons:
- hard to find
 
Bullet size: 149x50 mm
Bullet capacity: 1/5
 
Notes:
The Panzerfaust (Tank fist) is the only weapon in the game that can take out a 
tank. The problem is that a tank or MG42 nest is usually guarding it. Use it on
an enemy behind cover and save a life or two.
