Söldner: Secret Wars
Söldner: Secret Wars (sometimes spelled Soldner) is a multiplayer FPS game developed by Wings Simulations and released originally in 2004. The original release was flawed by many bugs, and continuous updating was severely hindered by financial shortcomings of distributors JoWood, who would later drop the developers. In 2011, the most recent version of Söldner was made freeware, including all improvements of the patches.
A add-on called Marine Corps was released in 2005, but it only added new vehicles and items to the game and no new weapons. A US edition of Söldner was released under the subtitle Semper Fidelis.
- Detailed stats about each weapon can be seen at 
- The free download of the "Community Edition" can be obtained at 
The game still introduced several new elements into multiplayer FPS games, like the "Commander" mode, fully customizable player models and weapon configurations and a giant single map of several 1000 kms width and height. Besides that, the game is still renowned for its giant arsenal of weapons and vehicles in the game.
The weapon system of the game is divided into 5 slots:
- Slot 1 holds the knife as a melee weapon.
- Slot 2 holds a pistol.
- Slot 3 holds any weapon categorized as a "rifle". This also includes several SMGs and grenade launchers.
- Slot 4 holds grenades and explosives.
- Slot 5 holds rocket launchers.
Any weapon has to be bought at the base of the player's team.
The following weapons appear in the video game Söldner: Secret Wars:
The Calico M950 again appears in the pistol layout, but converted to full-auto. Costs $950 ingame, but is moved to the "Rifle" slot.
The M1911A1 costs $350 ingame.
Desert Eagle Mark XIX
The Desert Eagle Mark XIX is simply called Desert Eagle ingame and costs $700. The gun is chambered in .50AE (noted by the absence of the fluted barrel), but holds an incorrect 8 rounds, like the .44 Magnum variant.
Original model of the FN Five-seveN, recognizable by the absence of the accessory rail. Costs $550 ingame.
Freedom Arms Model 83
The Freedom Arms Model 83 is the only revolver in Söldner. Costs $1150, is fitted with a scope and even more powerful than the Desert Eagle.
A 3rd-generation Glock 18, allows selectable full auto and featuring an extended 31-shot magazine. Costs $1400 ingame.
Heckler & Koch Mark 23 Phase II Prototype
The Heckler & Koch Mark 23 is again featured in the popular Phase II Prototype design. Is available with ($500) and without ($450) silencer.
Heckler & Koch P2000
The Heckler & Koch P2000 in Söldner holds an unrealistic 16 shots in the magazine. Costs $400 ingame.
The Norinco QSZ-92 is one of the cheapest available handguns, priced $350.
SIG-Sauer P250 Compact
Although called SIG-Sauer P250, this is the "Compact" version. Chambered in 9x19mm, as the magazine capacity of 15 induces. Costs $400.
The Sphinx 3000 costs $400.
The FN P90 costs $3400 and hence is the most expensive SMG ingame.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
This is obviously the Heckler & Koch MP5A3, as the receiver looks like this variant and the selector shows positions for single and auto fire. The ingame weapon however also allows a burst mode, so this could be another point to discuss. Costs $1400 and is simply named HK MP5 ingame.
Heckler & Koch MP5SD3
Just as with the the A3 variant of the "normal" MP5, this is the Heckler & Koch MP5SD3, since the selector only shows two selectable modes (in addition to the "safe" position) and the gun has a retractable stock. Costs $1500 and is simply named HK MP5 Silenced.
Heckler & Koch MP7A1
Just a plain Heckler & Koch MP7A1, however the shown magazine doesn't comply with its capacity of 40. Named HK MP7 ingame and is priced $2600.
Heckler & Koch UMP9
Judging from the magazine shape, this is in fact the Heckler & Koch UMP9, though such a magazine would actually hold 30 instead of 25 rounds, as the ingame weapon does. Named HK UMP.45 and costs $1600.
This is a Intratec TEC-9, though the game calls it KG-9. Despite the shown short magazine, it still holds 32 rounds. Costs $700 and is the cheapest SMG.
Izhmash PP-19 Bizon-2
The PP-19 Bizon-2 costs $2300. It should be noted that the depicted PP-19 holds 53 rounds in the magazine, indicating that 9x19mm Parabellum may be used.
A somewhat accurate depiction of the Ruger MP9 appears in Söldner, including the extended stock and the 32-round magazine. Costs $1000.
With the Armsel Protecta, the developers again omitted the manufacturer's name and called it simply Protecta. Priced $1700.
Benelli M4 Super 90
The Benelli M4 Super 90 holds incorrect 8 shots and costs $1500.
The Daewoo USAS-12 model shows the drum magazine, but mentions a capacity of only 10. Some kind of flaw for this $2000 shotgun.
The ingame Franchi SPAS-12 (again the game name omits the manufacturer) has its stock removed, but works fine otherwise. Also a cheap one, costing only $850.
Just as with the SPAS-12 (and many other guns in Söldner), the Franchi SPAS-15 shotgun is called only by its model designation. This one costs $1600.
For some reason, the NeoStead 2000's in-game designation lacks the numbers. Costs only $950.
The Pancor Jackhammer's ingame designation is simply the latter word of its name, and it costs $2100.
The Remington 870 is the only "classic" shotgun in Söldner. The silver finish of these $800 gun hints that it is the Marine Magnum version.
Assault / Battle Rifles
The 5.56A-91 is a combination of assault rifle and grenade launcher, the latter is referred to as M20 ingame. Costs $3200 ingame.
Of course a game like Söldner would be nothing without a AK-47, which indeed is very cheap with a price of $1400. A large magazine version (called "Big Mag" with 100 shots) is also available, but costs $3600.
Called AK-74, but is in fact the modern AK-74M version. Costs $1800.
The AKMSU appears as "AKS-74U", with an odd two-tone silver and black finish, and without the folding stock. It is also shown with a milled receiver. Costs $1300.
Bofors Ak 5D
The Bofors Ak 5D costs $3600 and features a scope/carrying handle.
Colt M16A1 w/ A2 Handguards
Söldner includes the M16A1 with A2 handguards in two versions: One fully-automatic, designated M16A1 ($2400) and one 3-round burst version named M16A2 ($1500), the latter mimicking the M16A2's fire control group.
Colt M4 and variants
There are no less than five versions of the Colt M4 available in Söldner: The stock M4 ($2500), the M4A1 version including scope, silencer and (unusable) tactical flashlight ($4000), a one called AimPoint ($3500), a SOPMOD version including scope, foregrip and silencer ($4000) and one plus the M203 grenade launcher called M4 / M203 ($3300). The best thing about this: They all look like actual M4 carbines, however the M4A1 version appears in odd silver finish.
The Enfield L85A2 is simply called L85 A2 ingame and costs $3900.
The FAMAS G2 costs $2600.
The FN F2000 appears along with a grenade launcher, which is (just as with the A-91) called M20. Priced $4200.
Oddly, just the L version of the FN SCAR made it into Söldner. Obviously a first generation model, comes with a scope and foregrip, which grosses up to a price of $3800.
Heckler & Koch G3A3
This is the slimline handguard version of the Heckler & Koch G3A3, priced $2100 and called HK G3 A3. Holds correct 20 rounds and is also available with a scope (named HK G3 A3 ZF) for the price of $3600.
Heckler & Koch G11 K2
The Heckler & Koch G11 K2 holds 45 bullets and costs $4500. Of course, the game version also retains the scope of the original rifle.
Heckler & Koch G36
A Heckler & Koch G36 is included in Söldner, which also includes the original barrel and optics. Costs $3800.
Heckler & Koch G36C
A plain Heckler & Koch G36C costs $2200.
Heckler & Koch HK53
Heckler & Koch XM29 OICW
The Heckler & Koch XM29 OICW appears ingame under the name HK OICW and costs $4400. The grenade launcher is again designated M20 and the sight is the same as with the FN F2000.
Heckler & Koch XM8 Carbine
The Heckler & Koch XM8 Carbine costs $3700. It should be noted that this one uses G36-like magazines.
IMI Galil AR
Things get messed up with the IMI Galil AR (wooden handguard), which has its magazine capacity lowered to uncommon 25. However this is one of the more cost-efficient assault rifles, priced $2300.
IMI Tavor TAR-21
The IMI Tavor TAR-21 costs $3500. It retains the scope of the original model.
IMI Micro Tavor MTAR-21
The IMI Micro Tavor MTAR-21 is simply named Tavor MTAR 21 inside the game. A dotsight is included for the price of $3500.
The Norinco QBZ-95 is yet another cheap ($1900) and light bullpup AR.
The OTs-14-1A-02 Groza is one of the smallest and cheapest bullpup rifles in Söldner. It only costs $2000, but features no special equipment like scopes etc.
SIG SG 551
The SIG SG 551 features a scope for the price of $3800.
SIG SG 552
The SIG SG 552 is available for $3500. As the SIG 551, it also features a scope, but is inferior in damage and range.
Steyr AUG A2
The Steyr AUG A2 costs $4300. Though called Steyr AUG ingame, this is the A2 version, as the scope is rail-mounted.
Heckler & Koch HK21E
The Heckler & Koch HK21E is depicted with bipod and a 80-shot ammo box. Costs $4800.
Heckler & Koch MG36
The Heckler & Koch MG36 is called HK 36 LMG and costs $5800. It retains the sight of the G36, but the bipod is not included.
Judging from the design of the rear sight and the stock, this is the M249-E1 SAW. Costs $5000 and is called M249 SAW.
Nothing special is to say about Söldner's M60, except that it's misidentified as the M60E3, though its heat shield and design of its carry handle are indicative of the original model. It's priced at $5500.
The MG3 appears in Söldner by its manufacturer's name as Rheinmetall MG 3 and comes with a bipod for the price of $5800.
The PKM Machine Gun costs $5200. Judging from the flash hider, it's a more recent model.
Accuracy International Arctic Warfare
The Accuracy International Arctic Warfare is incorrectly called AWM in the game. Costs $5800.
Söldner's naming of the Barrett M82A1 rules out the brand name and instead mentions the $6800 rifle by its designation and nickname as the M82 A1 Light Fifty.
Cheyenne Tactical M-200 Intervention
The Cheyenne Tactical M-200 Intervention appears under its usual abbreviated name CheyTac LRRS M200. Costs $7000.
Heckler & Koch PSG-1 A1
The Heckler & Koch PSG-1 A1 makes its appearance in Söldner as the HK PSG1. The price is $4900, and the A1 version can be figured out by the handguard.
The Izhmash SV-98 appears without a bipod and also without the brand name. One of the cheaper sniper rifles, priced $5100.
The Mechem NTW-20 is simply the most devastating firearm the player can carry in Söldner, being able of inflicting more than twice the damage of a M82A1 and even more than some rocket launchers. This also explains the price of $8500.
PGM Hecate II
The PGM Hecate II is also as effective as the M82A1, but has slight disadvantages in accuracy. Hence you save $200 over the latter, paying only $6600 for the Hecate.
The Saiga 308, called Saiga .308 ingame, is the very special case of the only un-scoped semi-automatic rifle in Söldner. This might also explain its price of only $1100.
SIG-Sauer SSG 3000
The SIG-Sauer SSG 3000's designation in Söldner oddly drops the "Sauer" out of the name. Appears with a bipod and costs $4600.
Steyr HS .50
The Steyr HS .50's name also gets messed up totally in Söldner, where it appears as the Steyr .50 HS. Yet another of the .50 BMG rifles, just as effective and worth $7000.
The SVD Dragunov makes its almost unavoidable appearance as the SVD Dragunow. Quite a good buy for $4800.
The VSS Vintorez is also quite cheap, costing only $4200.
Walther WA 2000
The Walther WA 2000 costs $5300.
Zastava Arms M93 Black Arrow
The rare-seen Zastava M93 Black Arrow appears also under omission of the manufacturer's name. Costs $6650 and is incorrectly attributed as a Russian-produced weapon. Almost equal in performance to the M82A1.
The C90-CR (M3) is available in the versions "Anti Bunker" ($3000), "Anti Personnel" ($4000) and "Anti Tank" ($5000). Each version comes with three missiles in total.
The double-barreled FHJ-84 exists in the versions "Anti Personnel" ($4500), "Anti Tank" ($3700) and "Smoke" ($500).
The FGM-148 Javelin appears in Söldner under the simple name Javelin. Note that the player can only carry two missiles for the launcher, which is quite costly for $7100.
The accurately shown (and named) LAW 80 is such a massive weapon that the player can carry only one shot with this launcher. However, it only costs $1250.
The M136 AT4 includes a scope and three missiles for the price of $3800.
The famous M202 FLASH appears ingame under the name M202A2 MRL, but the four barrels of the launcher are always shown extracted. Incredibly, the player carries a complete reload for all four barrels with himself. Costs $5500.
The Milkor MGL is a grenade launcher and therefore placed in the "Rifle" slot. Called MGL-MK1 ingame, features a scope and costs $4000. It is incorrectly reloaded by swapping out the entire cylinder.
The Panzerfaust 3 is one of the cheaper rocket launchers. Available in standard AT ($2700), "Bunkerfaust" ($3000) and Panzerfaust 3-T ($3800) version. All of these carry three missiles in total.
By far the cheapest rocket launcher. The PF-89 costs only $1150, but carries no reloads.
The RG-6 is another grenade launcher and thus also placed in the "Rifle" slot. Costs $4000.
The RPG-18 carries two reloads plus one loaded missile (three in total) and costs $2200. In real life, the RPG-18 is a single-shot, disposable missile launcher, and cannot be reloaded.
The RPG-29 is a more advanced unguided AT missile launcher, also with three missiles in total. Costs $4300.
The FIM-92 Stinger is the only MANPADS in Söldner. Also carries three missiles and costs $3500. For some reason, the weapon is called Stinger Weapon System ingame. It is shown with a fictional optical sight rather than the iron sight the real weapon uses.
Alhambra Frag Grenade
M15 Smoke WP
M18 smoke grenade
The M18 smoke grenade is available with blue, green, red and yellow smoke.
The MK3A2 is usable in the game.
