Order: 1886, The
Work In Progress
The Order: 1886 is a video game set in an alternate history London that follows the exploits of a group of legendary protectors of the British realm named 'The Order'. Members of 'The Order' are disciples of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur himself and are tasked with protecting the people of England from a multitude of threats including 'Half-Breeds' which is the name they use to describe werewolves and vampires.
Several of the weapons featured are highly anachronistic, but they are generally given a steampunk makeover to make them look appropriate in the alternate history setting.
The following weapons appear in the video game The Order: 1886:
Webley .455 Mk I
The first weapon you will find in the game is a Webley .455 Mk I Called the Mk 1 Service Revolver in game. This weapon is anachronistic by approximately 1 year.
The Borchardt C-93 is seen as the standard issue for Knights of 'The Order', and is called the 'C-78 Autoloading Pistol'. This weapon is anachronistic by approximately 7 Years.
The Colt Dragoon appears in the later half of the game as the 'M4 Dragoon Revolver' and is the strongest handgun in the game, killing most enemies with a single round. The weapon is a fictional top-break (as the Webley revolver) version of the Colt Dragoon 3rd model; as stated in the game, "this revolver was built as an upgrade to the older M3 Dragoons", which implies that the 'M4 Dragoon Revolver' is a further development of the Colt Dragoon 3rd model in the game universe. It is worth noting that although it is technically cartridge converted, the revolver in the game is still modeled on the basis of the original percussion model with a cylinder with cap slots (which would actually make it incompatible with metal cartridges), and with a loading lever. Any cylinder latch is also missing.
A Mauser C96 with an M712-style detachable magazine appears in game as the 'C-81 Maschinepistole'. It is modeled with the hammer of the early C96 prototype, and is select-fire despite not having a fire selector. It is anachronistic by about 10 years, though detachable magazine versions appeared even later.
The 'Duelist Revolver' is a fictional double barreled revolver with a 10-round cylinder, seemingly based on a Lancaster-made Howdah Pistol. Conceptually, it appears to be inspired by actual double-barreled revolvers such as the Lefaucheux double-barreled revolver or the Henrion, Dassy and Heuschen revolver. In-game, it fires two shots sequentially in a short burst per trigger pull, rather than two at once as one might reasonably expect, or one shot per trigger pull like the real double-barreled revolvers.
British 1756 Light Dragoon Pistol
A British 1756 Light Dragoon Pistol is seen in Lord Hastings Showcase.
Bergmann MP35/I (hybrid)
Chiappa Triple Threat
The 'Three Crown' Coach Gun in game appears to be based on the Chiappa Triple Threat shotgun, the in game version fires all 3 barrels at once. It is anachronistic by over 100 years.
The Browning Auto-5 appears as 'RA-5 Repeating Shotgun'. It is anachronistic by about 19 years.
"Essex M2 Falchion"
The 'Essex M2 Falchion' is the standard issue automatic rifle for Knights of 'The Order' and appears to be based on the Molot Vepr with a compressed air "Launcher" attached to the bottom. The magazine seems to be from a Browning Automatic Rifle and the rear sights from a Mauser Gewehr 1898.
Lee-Enfield No. 5 Jungle Carbine
The 'M84 Marksman Carbine' is a Lee-Enfield No. 5 Jungle Carbine. It serves as the game's sniper rifle. It appears with both suppressed and unsuppressed versions.
The Pedersen Rifle appears in the game as the 'M82 Selfloader Carbine'. This weapon is anachronistic by about 34 years.
The grenades in the game, (both frag and smoke use the same model), are based on the Model 24 Stielhandgranate, with a few cosmetic alterations such as an unusable blade attachment. The spoon safety is from the earlier Model 15 Stielhandgranate.
The Smoke Grenade is also based on the Model 24 Stielhandgranate but with a different warhead.
The Thermite gun is, rather loosely, based on the Maxim LMG 08/15 "Spandau" with elements of a Lewis Gun and a Vickers K machine gun. It sprays a cloud of thermite that can then be ignited with a flare launcher attached to the underside of the weapon.
TS21 Arc Induction Lance
The 'TS21 Arc Induction Lance' is a completely fictional weapon that appears to have been built out of spare rifle parts by Nikola Tesla.
The 'TS-17 Detonator' is also a ompletely fictional weapon.
The 'TS-29 Cannon' is based on the M18 Recoilless Rifle.
The Crossbow in game is called the 'Repeating Arabalest' and is always scoped, rather than have the bolt loaded one at a time it takes a drum attachment that holds 5 bolt at a time in a similar fashion to the one seen in Van Helsing.
During the last fight Nikola Tesla is seen with a fictional weapon. Sir Galahad takes the gun but is disarmed by Alastair.
