Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines (1998)

Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines is a single-player real-time tactics video game developed by Pyro Studios and published by Eidos Interactive in 1998. Beyond the Call of Duty is its stand-alone expansion, released a year later by the same developer and publisher. The expansion added new weapons, mission and enemies.

The following weapons can be seen in the game Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines and its expansion Beyond the Call of Duty:

Usable Weapons

Smith & Wesson 4506

The Smith & Wesson 4506 with wooden grips is the pistol of choice of the Commando team. This is the only weapon that can be used by the whole team (the only exception being the Dutch Contact, a character added in the expansion). Three shots can bring down an enemy soldier. Has a short range, comes with unlimited ammunition and fires as fast as one can click the mouse button. Appears as "Gun" in Behind Enemy Lines, and as "Pistol" in Beyond the Call of Duty. The weapon is heavily anachronistic, considering that the game takes place in the second World War, but the S&W 4506 was produced from 1988.

Early model Smith & Wesson 4506 - .45 ACP. This was an actual screen used pistol that was used by Ving Rhames and Bruce Willis in Pulp Fiction.

M3 Grease Gun

The Grease Gun appears as "Submachine Gun" in the game. Only the Driver can use it of the Commandos. Has a small range and is always fired in short bursts. Usually 10 or 20 shots can be fired from it before it runs out of ammo.

M3 "Grease Gun" .45 ACP. The later model M3A1 would eliminate the crank lever for cocking the bolt, and instead used a simple hole in the bolt for the shooter to use their finger.

Mills Bomb

The Sapper's standard fragmentation grenade is the Mills Bomb.

Duke's Sniper Rifle

Probably a Springfield variant, it is impossible to tell because only the scope can be seen in the inventory menu. Each hit grants instant kill. The remaining bullets are shown in the backpack.

Lee-Enfield Rifle

The Driver's new weapon in Beyond the Call of Duty is a Lee-Enfield rifle. Only part of it can be seen, so it is impossibly to determine the exact variant. Appears as "Rifle", and has limited ammunition.

Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I - .303 British. This was the main battle rifle of British and Commonwealth forces during World War Two, however, it was supplemented heavily with the older Lee Enfield No.1 MK.III. First placed in service with the British military in 1941.

Various Generic Weapons

Unfortunately the weapons the German troops use during the missions are not detailed enough to determine the exact variants. Here is what's certain: German officers are always using a pistol (probably Luger P08 or a Walther variant) in the game. Most of the Wehrmacht guards are armed with rifles, possibly Kar98k's. The Machine Gunner soldier are using what appear to be the MP40. Several emplaced machine guns can also be seen, probably MG42s or MG34s.
