Release Date: March 23, 2017
Developer: New World Interactive
Publisher: New World Interactive
Platforms: PC
Genre: First-Person Shooter


Day of Infamy is the standalone version of the Insurgency mod Day of Infamy, and is set to be the spiritual successor of Day of Defeat. The game is set in the Western Front of World War II, and objectives involve capturing and defending objectives to increase territory and spawn waves. Aiming for more realism than most first person shooters, many UI elements such as a health bar and crosshair has been omitted. However, compromises with realism has been made for the sake of gameplay, which explains some anachronistic weaponry in the arsenal. Teams are split into various classes, namely:

  • Officers, who can call in radio support
  • Radiomen, who can capture points faster with their radio
  • Riflemen, who have a sway reduction bonus
  • Assaults, who have faster movement speed
  • Supports, who can carry more ammunition
  • Engineers, who have increased weight capacity
  • Flamethrowers, who can equip flamethrowers for area denial
  • Machine gunners, who have increased suppression resistance
  • Snipers, who can hold their breath longer

Players can customize their loadout to select different equipment, such as attachments (eg bayonet for a Karabiner 98k) and binoculars or choose to ignore it. This is done by supply points which players need to spend in order to purchase equipment, and can be earned by killing opponents and capturing objectives to aid the team.

Allied forces consist of the Commonwealth and the US Army and Axis forces consist of the Wehrmacht. Each team has different equipment that promotes different playstyles. As of the game's full release, it also includes custom "units" that players can unlock via progression so as to increase the aesthetic variety in each game. To keep this in lieu with realism, maps will only allow for units that have served there. For example, Ortona will allow for Canadian units to be equipped, while Dog Red will disable the selection of US Paratroopers.

The game spawned a WW1 mod, called Screaming Steel: 1914-1918.

The following weapons appear in the video game Day of Infamy:

Contents


Weapons of the Wehrmacht

Handguns

Walther P38

The Walther P38 is available to all classes except the sniper and the officer.

Luger P08

The Luger P08 is available to the officer and machine gunner. Its windowed magazine is scripted to show the correct number of rounds in them, but this can only be caught by the most attentive and alert players during reloads.

Mauser C96

The Mauser C96 is available to the officer and flamethrower and holds 10 rounds in its internal magazine. Bizarrely, it can be reloaded mid-clip, with the player pulling the bolt back and watching the unspent rounds fly out one after another in a fantastic and otherworldly fashion before adding a fresh clip. In an early iteration of the test branch of the game a "broomhandle" stock was available but it has since been removed

Rifles

Karabiner 98k

The Karabiner 98k appears in game as the "Karabiner 98k" and is the standard issue bolt action rifle for the Wehrmacht. It is available for the officer, the radioman, the rifleman, the engineer and the sniper. Only the rifleman can equip rifle grenades. It holds 5 rounds in its internal magazine. Like the other bolt action rifles in game, when reloading the round that is ejected from the ejection port is not accounted for. It can be reloaded with both stripper clips and single rounds.

Karabiner 98k with ZF-39 scope

Equipping the "7x scope" will convert the Karabiner 98k to the sniper variant with a ZF-39 scope. The 4x scope's magnification has been increased to 7x for gameplay purposes. This attachment is only available to the sniper.

Karabiner 98k with ZF-4 scope

Equipping the "4x scope" attaches a ZF-4 to the Karabiner 98k, complete with a side-swept mount exclusive to the Karabiner 98k. However, the model is scaled slightly too small and it is missing the eyecup usually seen with it. This attachment is only available to the sniper. Previously this was preceded by the ZF-41 in the test branch.

Karabiner 98k with 30mm Schiessbecher grenade launcher

The 30mm Schiessbecher also called as Gewehrgranatgerät is available only to the Wehrmacht rifleman, even the engineer has no access to it. When the game was in alpha, to equip it the character would load in a blank before loading the grenade in. To reload you would chamber another blank prior to loading the next grenade. To de-equip you would remove the blank and remove the grenade launcher. As of beta, this animation has been simplified such that blanks are no longer loaded. The grenade launcher can be fired and aimed from a standing position.

NOTE: When equipping grenade launchers the player is no longer able to melee bash with them.

Gewehr 43

The Gewehr 43 appears in game as the "Gewehr 43" and is available to the officer, radioman and sniper. It holds 10+1 rounds.

FG-42

The FG-42 is available to the support class and holds 20 rounds in its box magazine. The FG-42 in-game is based on the early pattern and can equip a ZFG-42, and hence the Wehrmacht support is consequentially the only non-sniper class that can equip a magnified optic of any form. The weapon fires from an open bolt on both fire modes. The weapon's bolt does not lock back after the last round despite being able to in real life (on semi-automatic, that is). The weapon can also be deployed with its integral bipods.

The weapon is limited to maps where the Fallschirmjägers are available, and is available to any player in the support class, regardless of whether he has the unit unlocked. This is to make faction loadouts more realistic, but maps like Crete set in 1941 have them available as well consequentially.

StG-44

The StG-44 is available to the support class and holds 30+1 rounds in its detachable box magazine.

Like the FG-42, it is limited to maps where it was used such as Bastogne, a map set in 1944.

Mauser C96 Carbine/M712 Schnellfeuer/M1917 Trench Carbine hybrid

A hybrid of the Mauser C96 Carbine, Mauser M712 Schnellfeuer and M1917 Trench Carbine was introduced on September 29. It appears to be a C96 Carbine combined with the select-fire capabilities of the M712 Schnellfeuer in a bid to resemble the Trench Carbine, and is referred to in-game as the "C96 M1932", despite neither none of the three. It is available to the assault oddly and holds 20+1 rounds in its magazine. The extended magazine option adds the 40-round magazine that is iconic of the Trench Carbine.

It is unlikely for such a configuration to be used by the Wehrmacht. The M1917 Trench Carbine was designed and rejected as a possible weapon for the Sturmtruppen of WWI, the C96 Carbine was for exports only, and if anything, the slightly more fathomable situation would be a rich officer owning an M712 with a broomhandle stock, even then he would use a 20 round magazine, not a 40-round one.

Machine Guns

MG-34

The MG-34 is available to the support class and holds 50 rounds in its assault drum. Unlike the MG-42 the machine gunner uses, its iron sights are usable even when its bipod is not deployed, however it's not recommended to do so, as it suffers from harsh recoil. It can fire on both semi and fully automatic modes from an open bolt.

MG-42

The MG-42 is available to the machine gunner class. As with other machine guns available to the machine gunner classes, it can only be aimed when deployed. It has a 250 round belt and only fires from an open bolt.

Flamethrowers

Flammenwerfer 41

The Flammenwerfer 41 is the flamethrower of choice for the flamethrower class. Equipping it attaches a fuel tank to the back of your character. Shooting this tank would lead to fuel leakage and possibly an explosion of the tank. Like its Allied counterparts it holds 500 "ammo" and can light up the surroundings with its flames. Flamethrowers are the only primary weapons that cannot be used to melee bash.

Einstossflammenwerfer 46

The little-known Einstossflammenwerfer 46 goes by the name of "Einstoss 46" in Day of Infamy and is available to the support and engineer as an area denial weapon. It holds 15 "ammo" (it should only really be able to fire once) and it leaves a flame behind that effectively holds off enemy advancement. A point to note is that this was not issued to the Wehrmacht Heer, but to the Volkssturm and the Fallschirmjäger in the later part of the war.

Launchers and Explosives

Panzerfaust 60

The Panzerfaust 60 is available to the Engineer as a 4-point, single shot launcher. It is referred to simply as the "Panzerfaust"

RPzB 54 Panzerschreck

The Panzerschreck is available to the Engineer as a 5-point rocket launcher with 2 rockets available, inclusive of one in loaded into the launcher. The model in-game is the RPzB 54 variant with its blast shield.

Nebelhandgranate 39

Model 24 with Fragmentation Sleeve

A variant of the Model 24 Stielhandgranate with a fragmentation sleeve appears in Day of Infamy as the "Splitterringgranate" and is available to all classes except the radioman, engineer and flamethrower. It is heavier than the default stielhandgranate and can be thrown only up to a shorter distance but has a larger blast radius. It has custom visual effects.

Weapons of the Commonwealth

Handguns

Webley Mk IV

The Webley Mk IV appears in Day of Infamy simply as the "Webley" and is available to all classes except the sniper. It is chambered in .38 S&W and fires 6 rounds in double action. There is a secret draw animation where the character spins the revolver about his right hand.

The Browning Hi-Power is available to all classes and holds 13+1 rounds of 9mm in its magazine. Previously in the test branch of the game a wooden stock was planned but was later removed, similar to the C96. It has animations similar to those of the M1911A1.

Welrod Mk IIA

The Welrod Mk IIA appears in Day of Infamy simply as the "Welrod". It holds 8+1 rounds in its magazine and is available only to the sniper and officer classes as a bolt-action, suppressed pistol. It is worth noting that the Welrod was never made for the Commonwealth forces but only for the British Special Operations Executive (SOE).

Welrod Mk IIA - .32 ACP

Rifles

Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I

The Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I appears in Day of Infamy as "Lee-Enfield No 4" and is available to the officer, rifleman, radioman, engineer and sniper classes. It holds 10 rounds in its box magazine. That on top of it having the highest rate of fire among all three rifles makes the Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I arguably the best bolt-action rifle in this game, however this advantage means nothing in the face of automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons.

The Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I is capable of equipping the No 4 spike bayonet and the anachronistic No 9 Mk I bayonet. Oddly enough, only the rifleman has access to the No 4 bayonet, while everyone else is stuck with No 9 bayonets. This can be easily rectified with mods.

Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I (T)

Equipping the "4x scope" adds a No 32 scope and a cheekpad to the Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I, essentially converting it to a Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I (T). This is only available to the sniper. As its name suggests, the 3.5x scope's magnification had been raised to 4x to match its contemporaries.

Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I (T) with Winchester A5 scope

Equipping the "7x scope" mounts a cheekpad and a Winchester A5 (?!) scope, hence replacing the more accurate and realistic No 32 scope. The Winchester A5 has been seen on many weapons, including the venerable SMLE No 1 Mk III, but the No 4 Mk I (T) just happens to not be one of them. This is to make the scope used closer in magnification to the stated magnification in-game. This attachment is only available to the sniper.

This unlikely attachment is an odd choice for a game where attachments are highly specific to the weapon itself, with the Karabiner 98k having a specific ZF4 mount, the M1 Garand and M1903A3 using separate grenade launcher models, and the No 4 Mk I using anachronistic Energa grenades simply because they were more plausible than the idea of No 4 Mk Is with SMLE cup launchers.

Lee Enfield No 4 Mk I with Projector Mk 5

Equipping "Rifle Grenades" will add a Projector Mk 5 mount for Energa anti-tank rifle grenades which are highly anachronistic, being developed only in the 1950s. This attachment is only available to the rifleman class. Like the cup grenade launcher for the Karabiner 98k, the player no longer loads blank rounds into the rifle prior to loading the grenade.

Submachine Guns

Sten Mk II

The Sten Mk II is available to the assault and engineer classes. It holds 32 rounds in its magazine and fires from an open bolt. It is worth noting that unlike most other shooters, the player holds the Sten Mk II the right way.

Sten Mk V

The Sten Mk V is available to the officer class and can equip a No 9 Mk I bayonet. Like the Sten Mk II it holds 32 rounds in its magazine, fires from an open bolt, just that it lacks its select-fire capabilities. It is worth noting that Sten Mk Vs were issued mostly to airborne units rather than generic foot soldiers as the game seems to portray. It is also the only submachine gun in the game that is capable of mounting bayonets, but alas, it is the post-war No 9 bayonet.

M1928A1 Thompson

The M1928A1 Thompson is available to the officer and assault (only on coop) classes and has a 20-round magazine by default, firing from an open bolt. It can equip a 30-round extended magazine or a 50-round "L" drum, the latter only available to the assault class on cooperative gamemodes. The M1928A1 also used to be the placeholder submachine gun of choice of the US Army until it was replaced by the more historically accurate M1 and M1A1 Thompson.

Owen Gun Mk I/1942

Added into the Aussie Update for Day of Infamy is the Owen Gun Mk I/1942, available to the assault class and officer on maps where Australians are available to play on. It feeds from a 33-round magazine and fires from an open bolt, not to mention it has a relatively fast rate of fire compared to its contemporaries.

A point to note is that the Owen Gun mainly saw service in the Pacific rather than the West, and the variant shown is the older version with an entirely solid housing (around 12000 made) whereas the more common variant would be the Mk I/1943 with lightening cuts along with a wooden stock. The parkerised finish is also post-war, and wartime Owen guns had their yellow/green camouflage painted on in the factory itself. It would only be after the war that the camouflage be scraped off and replaced.

Lewis Gun

The Lewis gun is available to the support class. It holds 47 rounds in its pan magazine and fires from an open bolt. It has an oddly mounted anti-aircraft rear sight mounted to the volley sights. As with the MG-34, it can be aimed even when undeployed, and is probably the most dated gun in the game.

Vickers Mk VI

The Vickers machine gun appears in game as "Vickers" and is available for the Commonwealth machine gunner. It resembles a Mk VI or a Mk IV B with the bipods of a Mk VII and was based on a rare version seen in Malaya. Since both Vickers shared many parts it may be possible to use the bipods on a Mk VI. It is the "heavier" alternative that can only be aimed when deployed. It fires from a 250-round belt and is open-bolt. A point to note is that the Vickers Mk VI was mainly a machine gun to be mounted on tanks that was replaced early in the war by Browning M2s and Besa machine guns and it would be unlikely to see them carried by troops on the Western Front late into the war.

Note that the belt vanishes instead of passing through the left side of the receiver, this is done intentionally to reduce the polycount, as the compiler is unable to compile models that exceed the polycount limit.

The Ithaca Model 37 appears in Day of Infamy simply as "Ithaca" and is available to the Commonwealth radioman and assault. It comes equipped by default with an extended magazine tube that contains 7 rounds. It is fed with 00 buckshot with 9 pellets per shot.

Day of Infamy is one of the few games where the shotgun is still lethal without you needing to see the whites of the enemy's eyes.

Ithaca Model 37 with M1912 Trench Gun barrel

Equipping the bayonet attachment would attach a M1912 heatshield and bayonet lug to the Model 37 along with the bayonet. The Ithaca Model 37 has a Trench Gun configuration that comes with a heatshield and bayonet lug as well, but it's not long enough to accomodate a 7-round tube. The bayonet is only available to the radioman class.

Flamethrowers

No 2 Portable Flamethrower

The No 2 Portable Flamethrower appears in Day of Infamy simply as "flamethrower" and is available to the flamethrower class. It holds 500 "ammo" as with its contemporaries. Shooting the fuel tank would lead to leakage of fuel or an explosion.

Launchers and Explosives

PIAT

The PIAT launcher is available to the Commonwealth engineer. It has atrocious range and requires the player to aim extremely high to hit anything past the tenth meter. To compensate it can carry up to 3 rounds, one more than the M1A1 Bazooka and the Panzerschreck, with the third rocket only being available should the player equip the "heavy kit". The PIAT has its monopod removed since the developers decided it was not important nor useful.

Mills Bomb

The Mills Bomb is available to the officer, rifleman, support, machine gunner and radioman classes. It has a 3 second fuse which is considerably shorter than the 5 second fuse on the stielhandgranate and Mk 2 grenade and hence gives enemies less time to throw the grenade back.

No. 69 Mk. I High-Explosive Grenade

The No. 69 Mk. I High-Explosive Grenade, which has an impact fuze, is available to the rifleman, assault and engineer classes. It has a smaller blast radius than the Mills Bomb.

No. 79 Mk. I Smoke Grenade

The No. 79 Mk. I Smoke Grenade appears in Day of Infamy as the "No 79 Smoke", and is available to all classes except the engineer. It is depicted as an impact smoke grenade, replacing the previous inappropriate No. 77 as a smoke grenade.

Handguns

Colt M1911A1

The Colt M1911A1 is available to all classes as the "M1911" and holds 7+1 rounds in its magazine. It shares the same "first draw" animation as the Browning Hi-Power where the player switches off safety and racks the slide.

A point to note is that the trigger is a bit too large on this model, and may have been based on the trigger of the original M1911.

Smith & Wesson M1917

The Smith & Wesson M1917 appears in Day of Infamy as the "Model 1917" and is available to all classes except the support, radioman and machine gunner. It fires on single action only, with the player manually cocking the hammer after every shot. Half moon clips are an upgrade for one point.

Smith & Wesson M1917 models as well as late Colt models are capable of firing rimless .45 ACP without half moon clips, However the ejector-rod cannot engage them and they hence have to be poked out or shaken out of the cylinder. In the game, when using single rounds, the player shakes them out without engaging the ejector-rod, but uses the ejector rod to do so with half moon clips equipped.

Rifles

M1 Garand

The M1 Garand is available to the officer, radioman, rifleman and sniper (only on coop) class. It fires from an 8-round en-bloc clip and like in Red Orchestra 2: Rising Storm, can be reloaded when the gun is still loaded, however doing so is lengthier than an empty reload and will lead to any rounds in the en-bloc clip being lost. In a nice detail, if reloaded mid-clip, the ejected clip will accurately reflect the amount of rounds remaining; a very rare treat on top of the already uncommon sight of being able to reload a non-empty Garand.

M1C Garand

Equipping the "4x scope" mounts an M82 telescope and a cheekpad on the M1 Garand, converting it to the M1C Garand. This upgrade is only available to the sniper in coop, as with his M1 Garand.

M1 Garand with M7 Grenade Launcher

Equipping the "Rifle Grenades" attachment attaches an M7 grenade launcher to the M1 Garand, which the player loads M9A1 anti-tank rifle grenades onto. This attachment is available to the rifleman class alone. To equip it the player ejects the clip of live rounds and loads a clip of blanks before fitting the rifle grenade on.

M1903A3 Springfield

The M1903A3 Springfield appears in Day of Infamy simply as "Springfield 1903" and is available to the rifleman, engineer and sniper classes. It has the C-type pistol grip stock typical of one built by Remington. It holds 5 rounds.

M1903A4 Springfield

In the past, equipping the "7x scope" attachment removes the iron sights and replaces the bolt of the M1903, and mounts a Weaver Model 330 scope, essentially converting it to an M1903A4 variant. This attachment is only available to the US sniper. The Weaver Model 330 has since been removed temporarily as with the No 32 on the No 4 Mk I (T), and is slated to return to the game again as the "4x scope" at a later date to rival the ZF-4.

Looking through the Weaver Model 330 - Note the incorrect crosshairs. Like the Winchester A5 and M82 telescope, the Weaver Model 330 uses a single post reticle.

M1903A4 Springfield with Unertl 8x scope

Equipping the "7x scope" now removes the iron sights and adds a Unertl 8x scope to the M1903A3, essentially converting it into a bastardized M1903A4. The Unertl 8x has been seen on a sizable number of weapons such as the M1903A1, but sadly the M1903A4 is not one of them. As with the Winchester A5 on the No 4 Mk I (T) the model was chosen for its closer real-life magnification to the game's 7x magnification.

M1903A3 with M1 Grenade Launcher

Equipping the "rifle grenade" attachment mounts a M1 grenade launcher to the M1903A3. Like the M1 Garand it uses M9A1 anti-tank rifle grenades.

M1 Carbine

The M1 Carbine is available to the officer and radioman and is depicted as the late-war variant, sporting adjustable sights and a bayonet lug. However, it has the dark walnut furniture of the common WWII variant. It has a magazine capacity of 15+1. The officer gets the option to equip the more historically accurate "L" peep sight. Both classes have access to the bayonet for it.

It has a magazine capacity of 15+1.Both classes have access to the bayonet for it. Unlike the M1 Carbine it does not have the option for a "L" peep sight.

The M1A1 Carbine is limited to maps where the Airborne Divisions were present, and can be used by all players with the right class, regardless of whether they have unlocked the 82nd or 101st Airborne Divisions. However it is unavailable on Foy, despite the 101st Airborne being available.

Submachine Guns

M1A1 Thompson

The M1A1 Thompson is available to the officer and assault classes, replacing the M1928A1. It uses 30-round stick magazines and fires from an open bolt as with most automatic weapons in-game.

M3 Grease Gun

The M3 Grease Gun is available to the assault and engineer classes. It holds 30 rounds of .45 ACP and fires at 500RPM from an open bolt, which makes it very controllable, both in recoil and ammo conservation.

Previously it was an M3 that was mocked up to resemble the M3A1 simply by removing its charging handle, but this has since been rectified. The M3 was also said to be a conscious decision over the M3A1 so that it would fit with the time setting with most of its map, where the M3A1 would be otherwise anachronistic.

M1918A2 BAR

The M1918A2 BAR appears in Day of Infamy simply as "M1918 BAR". It is exclusive to the support class and holds 20 rounds in its magazine, firing from an open bolt. Its factory bipods are removed by default but can be equipped for 2 points (almost like an Electronic Arts game), and has its slow-fire and fast-fire modes.

The M1A1 Bazooka appears in Day of Infamy as simply the "Bazooka" and is exclusive to the engineer. The player can hold 2 rockets as with the Panzerschreck, inclusive of the one loaded. It is capable of firing white phosphorous rockets (dubbed "WP Rockets") for 1 point, and this also speeds up the draw of the Bazooka.
