Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault
General Boxart
Release Date: November 4, 2004
Developer: EA Los Angeles
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Series: Medal of Honor
Platforms: Microsoft Windows
Genre: First-Person Shooter

Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault is a first-person shooter developed by EA Los Angeles and is the second entry to be set chiefly in the Pacific Theater of World War 2 after Medal of Honor: Rising Sun. The game is based on films like Pearl Harbour, The Thin Red Line and Gung Ho!. The player takes control of young Private Tom Conlin and follows him from Pearl Harbour, to the Makin Island raid, Guadalcanal Island and finally to Tarawa Island.

The following weapons appear in the video game Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault:



Colt M1911A1

The M1911A1 is available to the player at several times during the game. It is also seen as one of the two primary weapons of the squad's Corpsman. In-game, the M1911A1 is customized with bright wooden grips.

Nambu Type 14

Japanese officers and corpsman carry Nambu Type 14s as their sidearm and it's usable to the player periodically. It comes with an 8-round magazine but with slower rate of fire and damage.

Smith & Wesson Model 1917 Revolver

Marine Raiders in the early part of the war sometimes carry M1917 revolvers as their sidearm; the player character uses one during the first few missions as well.

Submachine Guns

M1928A1 Thompson

In Basic Training, the M1928A1 Thompson appears with a 50 round drum. In the Pearl Harbor mission, the Thompson has a 30 round stick even though 30 round magazines weren't available until 1942 when the M1/M1A1 Thompson came out, and later in the game, it comes with a 50 round drum magazine again.

Type 100

The 1944 model of the Type 100 submachine gun is available for the Japanese faction. So the first appearance of the Type 100/44 in the Makin Raid (1942) and later on Guadalcanal Island (1942/43) missions are anachronistically. Thereafter, it will be available in small numbers during the rest of the campaign.

The Reising M55 (which appears in-game with a 20 round magazine) makes its first appearance on Makin, and is available off a dead marine on Tarawa.

Arisaka Type 38

The majority of Japanese troopers use Arisaka Type 38s as their primary weapon. Like the Garand, it is never seen without a bayonet. It fires 6.5×50mm rounds from a 5-round stripper-clip. The rear sights automatically fold out when aiming the rifle.

Type 38 reloading. Note: The receiver has only one case rupture port and the receiver says "99 Type" in Japanese written horizontally. If this was modeled off of a Type 38 it should have two case rupture ports and should say "38 Type" in Japanse written vertically

Arisaka Type 44

A few Japanese troops are seen with Type 44 Carbines in a few levels, most notably near the end of the Tarawa level. It's heavier than the Type 38 and is always equipped with an unfolded bayonet.

Arisaka Type 97

The only Japanese rifle without a bayonet, the Type 97 is used in the Lunga River mission to take out snipers hidden in the trees. The Type 97 sniper rifle was basically an Arisaka Type 38 fitted with a side-mounted sniper scope. The difference between the Type 97 and the Type 38 is that the Type 97 has a very sluggish rate of fire, a lighter stock, and a side-mounted telescopic scope. One of the unique features of the Type 97 that also appears in-game is that the 6.5x50mmSR Arisaka the rifle fires has no muzzle flash due to the small cartridge and the length of the barrel, making it difficult to do counter-sniping activity with a sniper using this weapon.

Note: In-game, it is called a Type 97 sniper rifle, but the model shows that it's actually a Type 99 sniper rifle based off of the Type 99 short rifle in 7.7x58mm, not the Type 38 long rifle in 6.5x50mmSR. This is indicated by the anti-aircraft fold out wings on the rear sight and the full-length stock, both of which the Type 38 and Type 97 did not have.

Boys Mk I

The Boys Mk I appears in one of the missions near Henderson Airfield and on Tarawa Island. Being an anti-tank rifle, it deals a tremendous amount of damage; as a trade-off, the rifle can't be used without being deployed on its bipod.

M1903 Springfield

The M1903 Springfield is used in Basic Training without a scope, and with a scope appears as "Springfield M1903/A5". It is the primary weapon of Willy Gaines, the squad's sniper. Available in Tarawa, can be found in one of the LVTs.
