Contract J.A.C.K. (2003)

Contract J.A.C.K. (Just Another Contract Killer) is a first-person shooter video game, a prequel to No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy In H.A.R.M.'s Way. The game was developed by Monolith Productions and released by VU Games in 2003.

The main protagonist is a contract killer named John Jack, who gets recruited by H.A.R.M. to sabotage a rival criminal organization called Danger Danger. Unlike NOLF and NOLF2, this game does not involve sneaking.

The following weapons can be seen in the video game Contract J.A.C.K.:

Pistols

IMI/Magnum Desert Eagle Mark XIX

The nickel Desert Eagle Mark XIX is the default handgun in the game. While it is called ".50 Handgun", in reality it is the .357 Magnum variant, noted by its fluted barrel and 9-round capacity. The gun operates in DAO (instead of the correct SA), and the slide locks back automatically when a reload is initiated. The pistol fires continuously if the fire key is held.

The game takes place in the 1960s, which makes the Desert Eagle highly anachronistic: the Mark I variant was not introduced until 1982, and the Mark XIX was not developed until 1995.

Thompson Center Arms Contender

The Thompson Center Arms Contender appears in the game as the "Bakalov Corrector." The in-game version fires High Explosive bullets (known simply as "HE") and is fitted with a scope. Ammo for it is very scarce.

Beretta 82FS "Cheetah"

Interestingly, ".32" caliber bullets can be found throughout the single player campaign, but the Beretta 82FS "Cheetah" is only accessible via cheats. The 9-round capacity and the .32 ACP ammo indicates that it is the 82 variant from the Cheetah series, while the "combat" trigger guard (also seen on the majority of 92/96/98 models) points out that it is the F/FS variant. (Please note that imfdb does not differentiate the F and FS models, since the differences are not visible during casual inspection.)

The 82FS fires modified bullets filled with cyanide, that produce hallucination after impact. Volkov is also seen with a Beretta 82FS pistol in the outro of the game.

This pistol is also anachronistic, as it was not introduced until 1976.

Beretta 81FS Pistol - .32 ACP

Shotguns

Ithaca 37

The sawed-off Ithaca 37 appear in the game as "Combat Shotgun". Despite having a sawed-off barrel (and tubular mag), the gun somehow manages to hold 8 shells at max. Can fire normal and phosphorus shells.

Submachine Guns

Colt M1921AC Thompson

The M1921AC Thompson returns from NOLF2, this time called simply ".45 SMG". Fires in 2-round burst when the mouse is clicked. Used by elite Danger Danger operatives. This is easily the most powerful weapon in the game, excluding the two fictional guns; the Plasma Cannon and Pulse Rifle.

Sterling L2A3

The Sterling L2A3 appears as "9mm SMG" in the game, and is used by possibly every faction, including Czechoslovak soldiers, Danger Danger troopers, mobsters and everyone else. Holds only 30 rounds instead of the correct 34, and fires in 3-round burst when the mouse is clicked.

Sterling L34A1

The Sterling L34A1 is known as "Silenced SMG" in the game. Holds only 30 rounds instead of the correct 34, and fires in 3-round burst when the mouse is clicked, just like the non-suppressed variant.

Rifles

AK-47 (Hybrid)

The AK-47 is used by Czechoslovak soldiers. Fires in 2-round burst when the mouse is clicked.

It is modeled with open AK-style front sights and the stamped receiver and smooth cover of a Norinco Type 56. The default ammo for it is labeled as "7.62". Can also fire "7.62x39" rounds, which are incendiary rounds with high damage that can set targets on fire.

Steyr SSG 69 PII

The Steyr SSG 69 PII is known in the game as the "Sniper Rifle". It is modeled with standard 5-round magazines, which hold 10 rounds. (10-rounder magazines were available, but are now discontinued). The ammo for it is known as ".308", so that players do not confuse it with the AK-47's "7.62" ammo.

This gun is also likely anachronistic, as the PI variant was not introduced until 1969 (hence the designation) and the game takes place in the mid-sixties.
