M1 Garand

The M1 Garand is the main battle rifle for the U.S. faction. It can be upgraded with an M7 bayonet at Level 25. The second upgrade at Level 50 gives the player the option to fake the famous ping noise, to fool enemy players in addition to an M1905 16 Inch Bayonet.

M1 Carbine

The M1 Carbine can be used by specialized U.S. troops (Officers, Squad Leaders and Engineers and can be unlocked for use by the Flamethrower role). It can be upgraded to fit a twin magazine pouch, and an anachronistic M4 bayonet. The weapon in-game behaves very similar to a pistol, with little to no kickback and high accuracy but you forgo the effective damage over range.

Grenades

Type 97 Hand Grenade

Japanese soldiers can be equipped with the Type 97 Hand Grenade, which can also be planted as a booby trap where it will detonate when a players steps on the grenade due to a percussion cap.
