Handguns

Beretta 92SB

Secondary weapon for all Joint Ops classes. It is a stand-in for the military M9. Called "M9 Baretta" ( note incorrect spelling, possibly a confusion between the American manufacturer Barrett and the Italian manufacturer Beretta ) ingame. This substitution also appears in Call of Duty's Modern Warfare series.

Beretta Model 92SB - 9x19mm (note rounded trigger guard and flat bottom magazine).
Note the rounded trigger guard, telltale of a 92SB. Also note the upside-down safety. The grip is correct of a M9.

Colt M1911A1

Secondary weapon for all classes. Called "Colt 1911A1". Both sides can use it.

World War II Colt M1911A1 - .45 ACP. This was an issued U.S. Army pistol with parkerized finish, thus the official designation of M1911A1
Aiming and reloading. Note the engravings on the side that match the M911A1.

Glock 17

Secondary weapon for all Rebel classes. Added with the Escalation expansion pack.

Generation 3 Glock 17, 9x19mm
Here the slide stop doesn't align with the notch in the slide.

Smith & Wesson Model 686

Called the "Smith & Wesson .357". Secondary weapon for all Rebel classes.

Smith & Wesson Model 686 4" Barrel - .357 Magnum
Exactly how the player reloads the revolver is unknown because it has neither a cylinder latch nor an ejector rod.

Submachine Guns

FN P90

Part of the Escalation expansion pack. Available to the Medic, Rifleman and Engineer as a primary weapon for both sides.

Fabrique Nationale P90 5.7x28mm
JO E - P90.jpg

Heckler & Koch MP5/10

Primary weapon for Riflemen and Medic class of both sides. Is also available suppressed. Appears as "MP5-10" and "MP5 Suppressed". Both MP5s have the curved 30rd magazines.

The MP5 is featured in multiple shelves in the armoury.

Rifles

Colt Model 654

The Colt Model 654 appears in the armory. It is probably the only weapon in the entire game to make an appearance and be inaccessible to the player at the same time.

Colt Model 654 - a Model 653 designed for export - 14.5" barrel and no forward Assist - 5.56x45mm
The Model 654 on the right is found among the weapons in the armory. Note the elongated 10-round magazine.

FN FNC

Brought into the game with the Escalation expansion pack. Available to the Rebel Medic, Rifleman and Engineer classes.

FN FNC 5.56x45mm

Primary weapon for all Joint Ops classes. Available with and without the M203 grenade launcher to the Rifleman class. Called "M16" and "M16/M203" respectively.

M4A1

Primary weapon for the Joint Ops Riflemen, Medic and Engineer classes. Available with and without the M203 grenade launcher to the Rifleman class. Called "M4" and "M4/M203" respectively.

Colt M4A1 Carbine with M68 Aimpoint reflex optic and Knight's Armament RAS railed handguard and vertical forward grip - 5.56x45mm
The M4A1 comes with standard red-dot sight, free floating handguard and an ANPEQ laser pointer.
The world model of the M4A1 exhibits multiple inaccuracies such as the absence of a shell ejection port or the lack of a forward assist and the fact that it was modeled with a 16" barrel.

Norinco Type 56

Primary weapon for all Rebel classes. Available with and without the GP-30 grenade launcher to the Rifleman class. Called "AK-47" and "AK-47/GP-25" respectively Although it appears as the AK-47, the version in-game clearly has a hooded front sight.

Type 56 assault rifle aka M22 - 7.62x39mm. Rather than having the under-folding pig-sticker Bayonet assembly, this has the standard bayonet lug underneath the gas block as the AKM and later variants.
The front sight is waaaaaay to short on this rifle to be actually useful.

Norinco Type 84S

Primary weapon for all Rebel classes. Available with and without the GP-30 grenade launcher to the Rifleman class. Called "AK-74" and "AK-74/GP-25" respectively. Like the alleged AK-47, this actually is a Norinco Type 84. Oddly, the magazine appears to be 5.45x39mm, which would be correct for the AK-74.

Norinco Type 84S - 5.56x45mm
The Norinco Type 84S is equipped with a non-removable Kobra red-dot sight by default. It also lacks the holes in the foreguard.

Shotguns

Remington 870

Secondary weapon for the Riflemen, Gunner and Engineer classes of both teams.

Remington 870, 12 Gauge
The Remington is, like many other weapons in the game, reloaded off-screen. Note the rifle sights and the misplaced rear sight.
The Remington 870 next to a Colt Model 654. It has a pistol grip, folding stock, extended magazine tube and heat shield; none of those appear to be on the first-person model except for the magazine tube.

Launchers

FGM-148 Javelin

FIM-92A Stinger

The only anti-air weapon, available only to the Engineer classes of both sides. An oddity during a short time after the release of the game (the developers reacted to the community criticism later on) was that the Stinger was close to obsolete over short distances; it required two missiles to take down an aerial vehicle, while the AT4 only needed one. Called "Stinger".

FIM-92A Stinger, 70mm
Interestingly, this and all the other shoulder-fired launchers use the same reticule.

GP-30

Available for the AK47 and AK74 as an attachment. Standing in for the GP-25. When it is equipped, the "/GP-25" name is added to the end of the gun.
