Delta Force: Black Hawk Down
Delta Force: Black Hawk Down is a first-person shooter video game and the sixth installment of the Delta Force series, developed and published by NovaLogic and released on March 2003 for the PC, Mac OS X, PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
The storyline takes place in the year 1993, during both Operation Restore Hope and Operation Gothic Serpent, as part of the Somalian Civil War. On the first missions, the player takes the role as Task Force Ranger and 10th Mountain Division soldier, later as a Delta Force operator.
On January 20, 2004, an expansion pack called Delta Force: Black Hawk Down - Team Sabre was released, featuring two new single-player campaigns taking place in Colombia and Iran, also introducing a few more weapons and vehicles.
The following weapons appear in the video games Delta Force: Black Hawk Down and Delta Force: Black Hawk Down - Team Sabre:
An indistinct model of the Beretta 92, identified as the M9, is the main sidearm of Task Force Ranger and the 10th Mountain Division, featuring a 15-round magazine and higher accuracy than the M1911A1 in exchange for less power per-shot. Delta Force operators are seen with M9s in leg holsters. Despite its in-game name, the actual base 92FS model that had been issued as the M9 is not present; the inventory image shows it with the shortened barrel and slide of the Centurion. The in-game model likewise appears to be a hybrid of the earlier 92S and 92SB, featuring a rounded trigger guard, with the safety/decocker only modeled on the left side like the 92S, but with its reload animation suggesting the magazine release button is at the base of the trigger guard like the 92SB.
The M1911A1, called "Colt .45" in-game, is the main sidearm of Delta Force. It is more powerful than the Beretta but less accurate.
Remington Model 870
The Remington Model 870 is the only available shotgun in the game. Not accurate but very powerful. Can be found under the secondary weapon category.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
A Heckler & Koch MP5A3 with a tri-lug suppressor simply appears as the "MP5" in-game. It is the only submachine gun featured, and is specific to the Delta Force CQB class. It has a rather oddly-modeled handguard, size-wise resembling either the wide "tropical" or SD style of handguard with the stippled pattern of the early "slimline" forend.
Rifles / Carbines
Colt Model 727
The Colt Model 727, incorrectly called "CAR-15" in-game, is the main weapon of Delta Force, featuring Aimpoint CompM2 red dot sight and available only to Delta Force. A version with M203 grenade launcher is also featured in-game. Of note is the in-game weapon model is that of a Model 727, while the selection screen shows a GAU-5/A carbine (AKA the Colt Model 610 - The U.S. Air Force adopted version of the XM177) for the standard rifle. A 727 is correctly shown for the M203-mounted version.
The GAU-5/A appears as the selection screen image for the Model 727.
The M16A2, called simply the "M16" in-game, is the main weapon of Task Force Ranger and 10th Mountain Division soldiers, and can be fired on semi-auto and 3-round burst. A version with an M203 grenade launcher is also featured in the game. Note that the standard M16A2 has an incorrect 14.5" barrel like the Colt Model 727, though the M16A2/M203 combo version has the right 20" barrel. Another note of interest are two modeling mistakes: The first one is that the M16A2's right side is actually the mirror of the left, meaning it lacks the forward assist, brass deflector, ejection port and its dust cover and magazine release button, and the second one is while the NPCs are firing their weapons on 3-round burst, their fire selector switch is set on semi-auto.
Heckler & Koch G36E
The Heckler & Koch G36E, called "G36" in the game, is a new assault rifle added in the Team Sabre expansion pack.
Heckler & Koch G3A3
The Heckler & Koch G3A3, called "G3" in the game, is a new battle rifle added in the Team Sabre expansion pack.
The AKM is used by Somali militia and Pakistani UN soldiers. Also used by Iranian soldiers and Pablo cartel gunmen in the Team Sabre expansion pack.
The M21 is one of several sniper rifles available in the game. It has the highest ammunition capacity, but is the weakest sniper rifle in the game.
The M24 Sniper Weapon System is one of several sniper rifles available in the game.
Heckler & Koch PSG-1
The Heckler & Koch PSG-1 is another sniper rifle available in the game - Added in Team Sabre expansion pack.
McMillan MCRT Tactical
The McMillan MCRT is one of several sniper rifles available in the game. With a 4-round magazine, it has the lowest ammo capacity of all the sniper rifles in the game.
The Barrett M82A1, called "Barrett" in-game, is one of several sniper rifles available in the game.
The M249 SAW, called "SAW" in-game, is one of several individual machine guns available in the game.
The M60 machine gun is one of three available machine guns. A modeling mistake shows the weapon without its bipod or, more distressingly, its front sight. The M60 is also mounted on Iranian VBL APCs in the Team Sabre expansion pack (however, the real life counterpart features a DShK heavy machine gun as basic armament).
The M240B is one of several individual machine guns available in the game.
Dillon Aero Minigun
The Dillon Aero Minigun is mounted on both MH-60 Black Hawks AH-6 Little Birds. Also mounted on MH-53 Pave Lows and used by Iranian soldiers in the Team Sabre expansion pack.
The M136 AT4 is available in the game - It is the standard anti-tank rocket launcher.
The RPG-7 is used by Somali militiamen.
Mk 19 Grenade Launcher
Introduced in the Team Sabre expansion pack for the Columbia and Iran missions, the Mk 19 grenade launcher has a slow rate of fire that is compensated for by shooting a highly damaging grenade round.
M67 Hand Grenade
The M67 is the main fragmentation grenade of the game.
M18 Smoke Grenade
The M18 is the main smoke grenade of the game.
The M18A1 Claymore is the main anti-personal mine of the game.
