The following weapons appear in the video game Project Reality:

Project Reality (2005)

NOTE: For the original game, see Battlefield 2.

Contents

Pistols

Beretta M9

The Beretta M9 is the main sidearm for the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) and U.S. Army factions in the game. It should be noted that unlike Battlefield 2, where every class has a sidearm as a backup weapon, only the Officer, Pilot, and Sniper classes are issued handguns in Project Reality, and there are no suppressed versions.

Browning Hi-Power

The Browning Hi-Power serves as the sidearm for the Canadian Armed Forces in the game under the British "L9A1" designation with synthetic grips and newer sights and spurred hammer design. The in-game Hi-Power is somewhat anachronistic for the real-life Canadian Armed Forces, as they use the older Inglis Hi-Power instead of the newer Hi-Power model as depicted in the game. A Hi-Power with wood grips and ring hammer design is used by the African Resistance faction and the Iraqi insurgent officer.

Glock 17

The Glock 17 appears in the game as the standard sidearm of the British Army and Royal Netherlands Army factions. For the British, it replaced the older L105A1 (British designation for the SIG-Sauer P226) used in previous versions of the game. This mirrored the adoption of the Glock 17 by the real life British Army, who chose the Glock 17 as their new sidearm in early 2013.

SIG-Sauer P226R

The SIG-Sauer P226R was introduced in the v1.0 update and appears in the game as the Middle-Eastern Coalition (MEC) faction's sidearm. The original P226 was used by both the MEC and British Army (under the "L105A1" designation) in previous versions until v1.0, when the MEC got the P226R and the British got the Glock 17.

Makarov PM

The Makarov PM pistol is the main sidearm for the Russian Army, and former sidearm of the Iraqi Insurgent, Taliban, Hamas (The Tokarev TT-33 replacing these 3 factions' sidearm), and the Militia (replaced by the Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion) factions in the game, replacing the Iraqi insurgents' Browning Hi-Power and the inaccurate MP-444 "Baghira" from previous versions and finally eliminating the MP-444 from the game altogether.

Norinco QSZ-92-5.8

The Norinco QSZ-92-5.8 is the sidearm of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) in the game. Up until v1.0, the 9x19mm version from BF2 was used, but it has been replaced by the 5.8x21mm version.

Heckler & Koch P8

The Heckler & Koch P8 appears in the game as the main sidearm of the German Bundeswehr faction.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

The Heckler & Koch MP5A3, fitted with a Navy trigger group, is the main weapon of the the MEC's Vehicle Crewman class and is also used by some Hamas classes. An interesting thing to note is, like with the G3, the Hamas faction's reload is different from the MEC's reload for the weapon. The MEC soldier will pull back the paddle and lock it in place, change mags then slap the paddle whereas the Hamas insurgents simply pull it back and let it rock forward after changing mags.

PPSh-41

The PPSh-41 submachine gun appears being used by the Taliban and Militia factions equipped with a 71-round drum magazine, and is probably one of the most dated weapons in the game, though it is not rare for militia forces to use old and outdated equipment.

MAT-49

The MAT-49 appears in the game as an available weapon for the African Resistance faction.

The Heckler & Koch MP7A1 appears in the game being used by the German Bundeswehr. As of 1.4, the MP7A1 is only available with iron sights (previous versions came with a Zeiss Z-Point red dot sight).

Rifles

Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk.III*

The Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk.IIII* appears in the game, used by the Taliban faction, replacing the No.4 Mk.I variant from previous versions of the game. It is perhaps one of the oldest weapons in the game, and rather out of place for a game that focuses on modern, cutting-edge weaponry, though it is not rare for militia forces to use old and outdated equipment.

SKS Rifle

The SKS rifle appears in the game, used by the Taliban, Militia, African Resistance, Free Syrian Army, and Iraqi Insurgents factions (Note the SKS used by the Iraqis has no bayonet). A variant of the SKS with a PU scope is also available.

The AK-74 used by the Militia faction can be fitted with a PSO-1 (same used by the Dragunov) and a PGO-7 (same used by the RPG-7) as well, depending upon the class. The newer AK-74M appears as the main weapon of the Russian Army faction, and can be fitted with a GP-25 grenade launcher as described below, as well as a 1P29 scope and a bayonet. Note the smooth receiver cover.

Heckler & Koch G3A3

The Heckler & Koch G3A3 appears in the game as the main weapon of the MEC faction and in the hands of some classes of the German Bundeswehr faction, with an optional Zeiss Z-Point red dot sight, Hensoldt Model 2 scope, bayonet, and HK79 grenade launcher, as well as RIS rails ontop of the weapon. It also appears in the hands of the Cell Leader class of the Taliban, minus the RIS rails. An interesting thing to note is, like with the MP5, the insurgent, Hamas and factions reload is different from the MEC reload for the weapon. The MEC soldier will pull back the paddle and lock it in place, change mags then slap the paddle whereas the insurgent factions simply pull it back and let it rock forward after changing mags.

Heckler & Koch G36

The Heckler & Koch G36 appears in the game as the "G36A1", and is the main weapon of the German Bundeswehr faction with an optional AG36 grenade launcher as mentioned below. As of v1.0, the player can use either the red dot or 3x magnification components of the G36's ZF 3x4° dual sight system, whereas the player could use only one of these optics per class and kit. Along with the CTAR-21 and G36K mentioned below, it is only one of three infantry rifles in the game that do not have iron sights.

The Heckler & Koch G36K appears in the game as the "G36KA1", and is an alternative weapon for most of the German Bundeswehr faction's classes. It also appears as the main weapon for the German Fallschirmjäger on the map "Silent Eagle". As of v1.0, the player can use either the red dot or 3x magnification components of the G36K's ZF 3x4° dual sight system, whereas the player could use only one of these optics per class and kit. Along with the CTAR-21 and G36, it is only one of three infantry rifles in the game that do not have iron sights.

It comes equipped in-game with a Grippod foregrip, optional ACOG or SUSAT scope, bayonet, and underslung Heckler & Koch L123A2 grenade launcher as mentioned below. Version 1.0 added a small red dot backup sight ontop of the ACOG for close-quarters engagements where the ACOG would be impractical.

The Hamas faction also use the M16A1 with a scope mounted atop the carry handle (referred to in-game as the "M16A1 DMR") as a main weapon for the Spotter class and an alternative weapon for the Designated Marksman class. As of the latest version (1.4), the IDF faction can use a designated marksman variant of the M16A1, the M16A2E3, fitted with a bipod and a Trijicon ACOG.

It always appears fitted with an M68 Aimpoint sight (a 3x magnifier is also available), a Grippod foregrip, and a polymer magazine. The C7NLD (and the C8NLD mentioned below) are also the first M16-pattern weapons in the game to use polymer magazines instead of the normal metal STANAG magazines.

M4/M4A1 Carbine

The M4 carbine is the main weapon of the U.S. Army faction. The M4 is also used by the Officer, Vehicle Crewman, Corpsman, and Anti-Tank classes of the USMC faction, the Hamas faction's Marksman class, and the IDF's Medic and Grenadier classes (as well as an alternative to the Tavor CTAR-21 for other IDF classes). The in-game M4 uses conventional iron sights as well as optional M68 Aimpoint red dot & ACOG scopes (either TA31F or TA31RCO models), ITL MARS, Meprolight, & EOTech red dot sights, RIS or Grippod foregrips, Harris bipod, and M203 grenade launcher as mentioned below, as well as the ability to engage an opponent in melee combat by striking them with the butt of the weapon or a mounted M9 bayonet depending on the faction and class the player chooses. For the United States Army & Marines in Project Reality, the 3-round burst is used instead of a fully-automatic fire mode to match its use in the actual United States military. However, for other factions the full-auto M4A1 is used. The M4A1's used by the IDF faction and Hamas Designated Marksman are the only ones that do not use an RIS handguard.

M231 Firing Port Weapon

The M231 Firing Port Weapon appears in the game. The weapon can only be fired through the two firing ports in the rear troop door of the M2A2 Bradleys used by the U.S. Army faction (the ports on the sides being blocked by armor). The weapon also has the same reloading sounds as the other M16-based weapons in the game, further reinforcing this.

The Tavor CTAR-21 appears as the main weapon of the IDF faction, complete with ITL MARS red dot sight as well as an optional 4x magnifier mounted behind the red dot sight for some classes. Like the M4A1 mentioned above, the CTAR-21 can also be used as a melee weapon in an emergency, giving a careless enemy a hard smack with the butt of the rifle. The CTAR-21 is one of only three non-sniper rifles in the game that do not have iron sights, the others being the Heckler & Koch G36 and G36K mentioned above.

M24 Sniper Weapon System

The M24 Sniper Weapon System is the main weapon for the U.S. Army & IDF Sniper classes, listed as the "M24 SWS" in-game and equipped with a Harris bipod and either the regular black coloration or an overall desert tan paint. The M24A3 model from BF2 was originally used up until version 0.95 (identified via the removable 5-round box magazine), but was replaced with the M24 due to the A3 model being anachronistic to real U.S. Army & IDF snipers.

It features a camouflage paint scheme, Harris bipod, and a Unertl 10x magnification scope (capable of variable-magnification in previous versions, but fixed to 10x magnification in version 0.91. However, as of v0.981, the variable zoom has been brought back).

Like the CTAR-21 mentioned above, the player can also use the butt of the STAR-21 to strike an enemy in melee combat. It is also capable of automatic fire for use in CQB situations, like the original Tavor TAR-21 (However, as of v1.0, the fire selector has been removed and the STAR is limited to semi-automatic fire).

Heckler & Koch G3SG/1

The Heckler & Koch G3SG/1 appears as part of the game, being used by the MEC & Bundeswehr factions' Marksman classes and supplementing the SVD Dragunov for the Taliban Marksman, featuring the weapon's proprietary bipod and Hensoldt ZF6x42PSG1 or Hensoldt Model 2 scope. It is one of the few DMRs in the game that feature an automatic fire mode, retained from the Heckler & Koch G3 the G3SG/1 is based upon. (However, as of v1.0, the fire selector has been removed and the G3SG/1 is limited to semi-automatic fire)

Heckler & Koch HK417

the Heckler & Koch HK417 appears in the game as the primary weapon of the French, Dutch, & German Designated Marskman classes, fitted with a Harris bipod, 20-inch barrel, and the option to use either SCROME J8 or Leupold Mark 4 scopes or an EOTech red dot sight. It should be noted that the HK417 is only used by special forces units in the Dutch military, not by regular units of the Royal Netherlands Army as seen in the game.

Shotguns

Benelli M4 Super 90

The Benelli M4 Super 90 semi-automatic shotgun appears in the game mainly used by the USMC and British Army factions, referred to as the "M1014 JSCS" and "L128A1" by the U.S. and British factions, respectively, the L128A1 being fitted with an EOTech red dot sight and loaded with both solid slugs and buckshot while the M1014 uses iron sights and buckshot only.

Mossberg 590

The Mossberg 590 appears in the game as the "Mossberg 590A1" in the hands of the U.S. Army (replacing the M1014 JSCS for that faction) and French factions (The French version fitted with a heat shield).

Norinco 982

The Norinco 982 shotgun appears in the game being used by the PLA, Russian Army, Taliban, and Hamas factions. The Hamas faction will have the Norinco 982 as a secondary weapon for some classes, loaded with breaching rounds (distinguished by the white shells versus the red shotshells of the other shotguns' buckshot).

Remington Model 870

The Remington Model 870 shotgun appears in the game being used by the Iraqi Insurgent, African Resistance, Hamas, Canadian Armed Forces, IDF, and German Bundeswehr factions. It features an 8-round magazine tube as well as synthetic or wooden furniture and is very accurate and powerful at close ranges, although relatively slow to reload. Previous versions of the game included the original BF2 version of the weapon as the "M11-87", complete with the inaccurate pump-action instead of semi-automatic fire mode, but this weapon was finally eliminated in version 0.91.

Saiga-12K

The Saiga-12K semi-automatic shotgun, fitted with an AKS-74 style side-folding stock and cheekpad, is the secondary weapon of the MEC Rifleman Specialist. Relatively weaker than the pump-action shotguns, but is semi-automatic, making it faster to fire and has somewhat longer range and accuracy. It is also the only shotgun in the game to use a box magazine, making it quicker to reload than the other shotguns.

Machine Guns

M249 SAW

The paratrooper version of the M249 SAW appears in the hands of the USMC and U.S. Army factions, equipped with optional ACOG and M145 MGO scopes respectively as well as the Product Improvement Package which replaces the old tubular telescoping stock with an M4-style stock and adds a RIS foregrip and heat shield over the barrel. It has an extreme rate of fire, good for close quarters combat, but inaccurate for long ranges in full auto (except when being used for suppressing fire), making short 1-4 shot bursts more effective. The player can also deploy the SAW's bipod to increase long-range accuracy. It also ejects spent shells directly to the right instead of ejecting them at a downward angle. The full-size M249 SAW appears in fixed defensive positions at U.S. bases, though is fitted with the tubular telescoping stock for some reason. The non-fixed versions of the SAW have been updated with 100-round woodland camo cloth ammo bags instead of the 200-round plastic boxes used in previous versions.

FN Minimi Para

The FN Minimi Para, the paratrooper version of the original FN Minimi, appears in the game as the primary weapon for the British and French Army's Automatic Riflemen class and is fitted with a 100-round, DPM-camo cloth ammo bag. The French variant is either fitted with a EOTech red dot sight or SCROME J4 scope. The British variant is the "L110A1" and can be fitted with an optional SUSAT scope. The L110A1 also can be found in fixed defensive mountings at British positions, with a 200-round ammo drum instead of the 100-round soft bag. When fitted with a SUSAT the weapon becomes an L110A2, adding a 19mm dovetail rail for the mounting of the SUSAT and removing the rear sight.

FN C9A2 Light Machine Gun

The FN C9A2 light machine gun appears as part of the game, used by the Canadian Armed Forces faction. It features an M4-style telescoping stock and optional ELCAN scope as well as a 100-round woodland camo cloth ammo bag. It can also be found in fixed defensive positions at Canadian strongholds (with a 200-round plastic drum and full-length barrel) and serves as the primary armament of the Canadian G-Wagen light vehicles, fitted with a Transparent Armor Gun Shield (TAGS) in front of the weapon to protect the gunner from enemy small-arms fire.

FN MAG 58

The FN MAG 58 appears in the game as the primary weapon of the IDF and Canadian Machine Gunner classes, the Canadians using their "C6" designation. It is also used as the secondary armament on the Canadian LAV-III APC in a coaxial mounting next to the main gun, and door-mounted on the Canadian CH-146 Griffon transport helicopter with spade grips and butterfly trigger. Oddly, the FN MAG has the L7A2's markings and carry handle.

M240 Machine Gun

The game features four different versions of the American M240 machine gun; the M240B and M240G appear in the game as the primary weapon of the US Army & USMC's Machine Gunner classes (though the USMC's M240G uses the Army's M240B designation in-game), with an optional M145 MGO scope for the Army and an ACOG for the Marines. The M240D appears as an optional defensive armament on the US Army and IDF's UH-60L Blackhawk and USMC's UH-1N Huey helicopters, and the M240C coaxial version serves as a secondary weapon mounted alongside the main gun on M1A1 and M1A2 Abrams tanks, LAV-25 APC's, (though this weapon is not externally visible unless firing, with the exception of a dark spot next to the main armament as seen below), the U.S. Army's M2A2 Bradley APC, the IDF's Merkerva Mk IV tanks, and the British Army's Scimitar light tanks (designated "L37A1" on the Scimitar). Oddly, the M240B, M240D, and M240G have the L7A2's markings and carry handle (most likely a developer oversight).

L7A2 Machine Gun

The L7A2 machine gun appears as part of the game, serving as the primary weapon of the British Machine Gunner class, as well as mounted on the front passenger seat of British & Dutch Land Rover jeeps. Version 0.96 added an L7A2 mounted in a remote-controlled CROWS system on an Iveco LMV, similar to the one used by one of the Humvee models. Strangely, the French Army's Machine Gunner class incorrectly uses the L7A2 despite the FN MAG (their actual GPMG) being in the game.

MG3 Machine Gun

In some of the maps, the player can control Canadian and German Leopard 2A6 tanks which use an MG3A1 machine gun coaxially mounted next to the main gun, as well as on the Loader's hatch (though it is usable by the Tank Commander in-game as the Loader position doesn't exist). The MEC faction's Automatic Rifleman uses the original man-portable MG3 with 75-round ammo drum and optional ELCAN scope. The MEC and German factions also uses the MG3 as the primary weapon of their Machine Gunner classes, with a 125-round ammo box and ELCAN scope for the MEC and EOTech red dot sight for the Germans. It also appears in fixed positions at MEC and German bases, feeding from a 125-round ammo box. A Norwegian Army soldier can also be seen carrying an MG3 on his shoulder on a billboard showing a recruitment advertisement for the Norwegian Armed Forces seen on the Dovre map.

Heckler & Koch MG4 Machine Gun

The Heckler & Koch MG4 appears in the game as the Bundeswehr's light machine gun, equipped with either a Zeiss Z-Point red dot sight or a G36V-style 3x scope/carry handle assembly. It also serves as a coaxial weapon on the Puma infantry fighting vehicle and the primary armament on their G-Wagen light vehicles.

Norinco QBB-95

The Norinco QBB-95 is the main light machine gun for the Chinese PLA. It has average accuracy and damage. It can also be found as a stationary turret and mounted on Fast Attack Vehicles for the front passenger on some maps. The game also gives the player the option of using this weapon with the standard iron sights or a Y/MA 95-002 scope. It can also operate in semi-automatic mode, allowing for greater long-range accuracy, especially when using the integral bipod.

L86A2 Light Support Weapon

The L86A2 Light Support Weapon appears as part of the game, being used by the British Army faction and fitted with an optional SUSAT scope. Despite the L86A2 technically being a squad automatic weapon, the L86A2 is issued as the main weapon of the British Army's Designated Marksman class, as in the real-life British Army. As of v1.0, the L86A2's fire selector was removed, limiting the weapon to semi-automatic.

IMI Negev

The IMI Negev appears as part of the game, used primarily by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) faction. It features a 200-round cloth ammo bag and optional ACOG scope. An interesting note about the Negev is that it is one of only two machine guns in the game with a semi-automatic fire mode (and the only belt-fed machine gun with this ability) which, when coupled with the ACOG scope, gives it the ability to act as a makeshift Designated Marksman Rifle when used with the bipod deployed. However, as of v1.0, the variant with the ACOG scope has been removed from the game along with the Negev's select fire capabilities.

PKM/PKT Machine Gun

The PKM machine gun appears in the game, being used by the Machine Gunner classes of the Taliban, Hamas, Free Syrian Army, Iraqi Insurgent, and African Resistance factions as well as in fixed defensive positions in Iraqi Insurgent, Hamas, & Russian Army strongholds. The BTR-60, BTR-80, BTR-80A, MT-LB 6MB, BMP-1, BMP-2, BMP-2M, & BMP-3 APC's, BRDM-2 scout vehicles, as well as T-62, T-72, and T-90 tanks also use PKT machine guns in a coaxial mounting next to the main armament. The BMP-3's coaxial PKT is not externally visible unless firing, but the vehicle does feature a pair of externally visible PKT machine guns bow-mounted in the hull as shown below, usable by the front two passengers. The PKM is also mounted on pickup trucks used by the Militia, Iraqi Insurgent, Hamas, African Resistance, and Taliban for the front passenger to fire through the windshield, replacing the RPK-74 used in previous versions. The MT-LB APC used by the MEC and Russian Army use the PKT as their primary weapon in a small turret on the front-right corner of the vehicle's roof. It should be noted that the PKM is one of only two light machine guns in the game that is not equipped with any kind of optic, using the standard iron sights instead (the other being the M60). Also, the in-game PKM uses disintegrating link belts instead of non-disintegrating links like the real PKM.

PKP Pecheneg

The PKP Pecheneg appears in the game as the primary weapon of the Russian Army and Chinese PLA's Machine Gunner classes, fitted with an optional PK-A scope. The developers have stated that the PKP issued to the Chinese faction is a placeholder pending introduction of the Norinco QJY-88 at a later time.

M60 Machine Gun

The M60 machine gun appears as the secondary light machine gun of the Militia faction, supplementing the PKM in this role. It also appears mounted on the bow of the RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats), replacing the M249 SAW. Like other machine guns in the game, the M60's bipod can be deployed to increase the weapon's accuracy. Along with other alternate kits, it can be picked up by right clicking the desired kit in the supply crate.

RPK Light Machine Gun

The RPK light machine gun appears in the game used as a secondary automatic rifle, used by the Iraqi Insurgent, Free Syrian Army, African Resistance, Hamas, and Taliban factions. Note that the Iraqi Insurgent and Taliban factions use a version with a standard AK-style stock, representing the Iraqi-manufactured "Al Quds" variant (an Iraqi copy of the Zastava M72).

The Type 85 heavy machine gun appears as the Chinese heavy machine gun, mounted on Type 98 tanks, some WZ551 APC's, Fast Attack Vehicles, door-mounted on Changhe Z-8 helicopters, and in Chinese HMG nests. It should be noted that the game uses both early and current-production versions of the Type 85.

Mauser BK-27

The Mauser BK-27 appears in the game as the secondary armament of the British and German factions' Eurofighter Typhoon and Tornado IDS. Since PR reuses the Typhoon model from BF2, the BK-27 is mounted in the wrong location on that aircraft.

Browning M2HB Heavy Machine Gun

The Browning M2HB heavy machine gun is mounted on most U.S. Army & Marine Corps land vehicles including the M1A1 & M1A2 Abrams and the Humvee, the USMC Humvee having a gun shield mounted in front of the M2HB to protect the gunner from enemy small-arms fire (some Humvees replace the manually-fired M2HB with a CROWS remote mounting). The M2HB also ejects the shells towards the right instead of downwards from the bottom of the gun. The M2HB equips several other vehicles, including the Merkerva Mk IV tank and M113 & Namer Armored Personnel Carriers of the Israel Defense Forces faction, the African Resistance & Free Syrian Army's Technicals, the British Army & Dutch factions' Land Rover jeeps, the British Challenger 2 tank (despite the real-life Challenger never being equipped with this weapon), the Dutch faction's Boxer APC, the USMC's AAV7A1 Armored Personnel Carrier, and the U.S. Army faction's M1126 Stryker Armored Personnel Carrier. The Stryker, Namer, AAV7A1, and some Humvees are the only vehicles in the game that do not have the M2HB manually-operated by the player, instead using the vehicle's remote weapon station to operate the M2HB from within the safety of the vehicle. The British, Canadian, IDF, German, and both U.S. factions can set up machine gun nests furnished with a tripod-mounted M2HB. It should be noted that unlike BF2 where most fixed and vehicle-mounted automatic weapons have infinite ammo supplies, Project Reality gives them a limited ammo supply, though automatic weapons are still subject to overheating and becoming temporarily inoperable if the player fires in prolonged bursts. It should also be noted that all the machine gun nests in the game will have a heavy machine gun sitting on the M2HB's M3 tripod, regardless of whether that particular gun is compatible or not.

The LAV-25 APC's and M2A2 Bradleys used by the Marines and U.S. Army factions and the Canadian Armed Forces' LAV-III come equipped with an M242 Bushmaster chaingun as their primary weapon. The M242 can kill infantry with one shot but requires prolonged fire to take out bigger targets like APC's and tanks. As with the machine guns in the game, the player must take care to fire in bursts lest the weapon overheat and become inoperable until it cools down. The M242 is able to switch between APDS-T (Armor-Piercing Discarding Sabot, Tracer) and HEI-T (High Explosive-Incendiary, Tracer) ammo.

Heckler & Koch AG36 Grenade Launcher

The Heckler & Koch AG36 grenade launcher appears mounted on the German Bundeswehr's G36, the Royal Netherlands Army's C7A1, and the L85A2 of the British Army. The British version is incorrectly designated as "L17A2"; this is actually the designation for the AG-C used on British versions of the Diemaco C8, the version for the L85A2 being L123A2. As with the other grenade launchers, the AG36 can also fire HE, smoke, and illumination rounds.

Mines

M15 Anti-Tank Mine

One of several land mines in the game is the M15 anti-tank mine, used by the USMC, U.S. Army, British Army, Canadian Armed Forces, Chinese PLA, and German Bundeswehr. Though designed to explode when run over by any vehicle, it's possible for them to be knocked aside without detonating. In previous versions of the game, hitting an anti-tank mine would be instant death for main battle tanks, but now it only causes critical damage instead, giving the crew several seconds to bail out before the tank explodes.

TM-62 Anti-Tank Mine

The TM-62 anti-tank mine appears as part of the game, used by the Russian Army and MEC factions, with the same properties as the M15 mentioned above. TM-62 mines can also be seen in weapon caches in the insurgency game mode.

M18A1 Claymore

One of two anti-personnel mines in the game is the M18A1 Claymore, used by the USMC, US Army, British Army, Canadian Forces, IDF, and Bundeswehr factions. The Chinese PLA faction uses a domestic copy of the Claymore, the Type 66. Both the Type 66 and M18A1 in the game are command-detonated as opposed to automatically detonating when sensing enemy troops in their kill zone as in BF2. Version 0.95 also gives the player the option to plant several anti-personnel mines and select which one to detonate.

MON-50 Anti-Personnel Mine

The MON-50 anti-personnel mine appears as part of the game as the anti-personnel mine of the Hamas, Taliban, Free Syrian Army, Militia, and Russian Army factions. It functions in-game the same as the M18A1 Claymore above.
