Commandos 2: Men of Courage (2001, 2002, 2010)

Commandos 2: Men of Courage is a critically acclaimed World War II real-time tactics video game. It was released in 2001 for the PC, and ported a year later to the Xbox and PlayStation 2. In 2010, it was also released for the Mac OS X along with its sequel, Destination Berlin as part of the Commandos Battle Pack. In 2020, a remaster was released, titled Commandos 2 - HD Remaster.

The missions in the game were inspired by famous World War II movies. The mission "Saving Private Smith" was clearly based on Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan. In the mission "The Bridge on the River Kwai", the Commandos must destroy the bridge, as in the film of the same name. Other references include the movies such as The Great Escape, Is Paris Burning?, and The Colditz Story.

The following weapons appear in the video game Commandos 2: Men of Courage:

Allied Weapons

Colt M1911A1

The M1911A1 is the standard sidearm of every member of the team in the game. Has unlimited ammunition and isn't reloaded. Appears as "M1911A".

The 3D pistol in the remaster, the exact texture/model size depends on the character model but it seems to generally be a 1911-ish pistol.

M1903A4 Springfield

The M1903A4 Springfield is used by Duke and Lips. This weapon has the best range and one hit will always kill targeted enemies. It erroneously shares ammunition with the G43 and Type 97.

Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk I

The Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk I is used mainly by Allied soldiers. Has unlimited ammo and cannot be reloaded.

M2-2 Flamethrower

The M2-2 Flamethrower is a devastating weapon, but finding "ammo" for it can be a big problem. Only Inferno is capable of handling this weapon.

Mills Bomb

The Mills Bomb is the standard frag grenade of the Commandos. In this game, only the Sapper can throw frag grenades, just like in Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines.

The PIAT incorrectly appears as "Bazooka" in the game and only Inferno can use it. Can be used to destroy tanks or kill groups of enemies.

German Weapons

Luger P08

The Luger P08 is the standard weapon of the German officers and is also used by snipers occasionally. It has the exact same stats as the M1911A1, however it does not have unlimited ammo.

Luger P08 - 9x19mm

MP 40

The MP 40 is the only submachine gun in the game. It has medium effective range and packs decent firepower. All of the Commandos can use it. The MP 40 is the perfect choice when dealing with groups of enemies, however it can only be fired in short bursts.

Gewehr 43

Wehrmacht snipers use the Gewehr 43. It is one of the poorly-modeled weapons in the game, because the in-game inventory image doesn't really look like the rifle at all, despite this it is still called "G43".

The inventory icon of the Gewehr 43 appears to be a hastily modified version of the one used for the "Karabiner98k", evidenced by the presence of a bolt-action the Gewehr 43 most certainly does not have.

Mauser Gewehr 1898/Kar98k hybrid

The "Karabiner98k" is actually a Mauser Gewehr 1898/Kar98k hybrid. It is incorrectly portrayed with a box magazine instead of a five-round fixed magazine. It is used by German patrols and all of the Commandos can use it too. It has long effective range, but the ammunition is limited to 15 rounds per soldier.

In a glaring error in the remaster, the German and Japanese rifles are reversed and as a result, the German rifle is used by the Japanese.

Tellermine 35 (Stahl)

The Tellermine 35 (Stahl) anti-tank mine can be used by Inferno to set up deadly traps for vehicles. If the enemy laid it, only Inferno can detect and disarm it with the mine detector.

Flak Gun

Anti-Air Flak Guns appear as mounted weapons in "Das Boot Silent Killers" where they can also be destroyed as part of an optional objective.

Japanese Weapons

Type 94

Japanese snipers and officers always have one Type 94 pistol in their inventory.

Japanese Type 94 Pistol - 8x22mm Nambu

Arisaka Type 38

Arisaka Type 38s are used by Imperial Japanese Army soldiers in the game. It is incorrectly shown with box magazine instead of the five-round internal magazine.

Arisaka Type 38 rifle - 6.5x50mm Arisaka

Arisaka Type 97

Japanese snipers use Arisaka Type 97 rifles. Only Duke can use it of the Commandos. This weapon is also incorrectly shown with a box magazine instead of the five-round internal magazine.

Arisaka Type 97 with scope - 6.5x50mm Arisaka

Type 93 heavy machine gun

The Type 93 heavy machine gun appears as a mounted machine gun and is oddly used by German forces. Like other mounted weapons in Commandos 2, only the Sapper can use them and they have absurdly short range presumably in an attempt to balance them for a stealth game.

Type 96 AT / AA Gun

Japanese Type 96 25 mm AT/AA Gun appears in "The Guns of Savo Island" as a mounted weapon.

Japanese Artillery

Other/Unusable Weapons


Several PPSh-41 submachine guns can be seen in the intro of the game.

Arisaka Type 2

The Arisaka Type 2 Paratrooper rifle was added in the remastered version. The rifle was likely intended to replace the basic Arisaka, however, in a glaring error the German and Japanese rifles were reversed resulting in the Type 2 being erroneously used by the Germans.

Mosin Nagant M91/30

In a frankly bizarre error, the Mosin Nagant M91/30 appears as the Japanese(!) sniper rifle in the HD Remaster. Seemingly whoever was in charge of the weapon icons saw the ushanka-like cap on the Japanese sniper uniform and assumed they were Russian instead of making a Type 97 icon for the inventory.
