Splinter Cell: Conviction (2010)

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction is the fifth installment in the Splinter Cell video game series. It was developed by Ubisoft Montreal with the help of Ubisoft's Rainbow Six: Vegas team. The game takes place three years after Splinter Cell: Double Agent and tells the story of a renegade Third Echelon agent searching for truth and revenge.

The game was released on 13th April 2010 for the PC, Mac, X360, iOS and Android operation system.

The following weapons appear in the video game Splinter Cell: Conviction:


Conviction uses a truly unique weapon system, because in this game pistols acts as primary weapons. All other guns are optional, "alternative weapons". The game also uses a highly realistic health system (1-2 shots from a pistol grants a kill), which really makes the other big guns only secondaries, and not necessary ones. What is not so realistic is that the handguns follow the popular "magic slide" rule of having the slide lock back when a reload is initiated.

In addition to this, ALL pistols have unlimited ammo in any game mode, story mode or co-op.

FN Five-seveN

Sam's main weapon and sidearm like in the previous games is the FN Five-seveN, although this time it has a two-tone black and flat dark earth frame, a built-in compensator-style suppressor and is appearing as the new USG model. Called "FIVE-SEVEN" in the game. Can be upgraded with a C-More style reflex sight (making it the only weapon to allow four marks to be targeted for "execution" one-hit kills), a laser aiming module and match grade ammo.

Kestrel surprises an enemy guard from behind. Only suppressed weapons are being fired during close-quarters takedowns. This is one of the reasons the pistols have unlimited ammunition.

Heckler & Koch USP45

The Heckler & Koch USP45 appears in Conviction as a usable pistol, it holds 12 rounds. Can be upgraded with a reflex sight, a laser sight and hollow point ammo. Called "USP.45" in the game. It is the preferred weapon of the Washington PD and the Secret Service.

Heckler & Koch Mark 23 Mod 0

The Heckler & Koch Mark 23 appears as "MK.23" in Conviction. It is Sam's personal defense weapon of choice and is his default pistol unless the player equips another handgun from a weapon stash. Can be upgraded to hold 18 rounds from its starting 12. Can also be equipped with a laser sight and hollow point ammo. It is suppressed by default and is the most powerful pistol in the game. The only drawback is that only two enemies can be "executed" with it at the same time. The presence of front grip grooves and a slide lock would indicate that it is a Phase I prototype model.

Anna: Here. Just make sure to aim it at the right people.
Sam: Oh I will...

Izhmekh MP-446 "Viking"

The Izhmekh MP-446 "Viking" appears as "MP-446" and is always suppressed. Holds 17 rounds in the magazine. Can be equipped with a reflex sight, a laser sight and match grade ammo. It has moderate range, stopping power and accuracy. The Viking is the sidearm of the Third Echelon cleaning squad sent after Fisher during the Lincoln Memorial level. So far, this is the one and only video game to feature the MP-446.

Walther P99

The Walther P99, with an olive drab frame and longer barrel, can be obtained through the Extras menu. Can be upgraded with extended magazine (+4 rounds), laser sight, and match grade ammo. It is probably the .40 S&W version because it holds 12 rounds.

IMI/Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark I

The second weapon Fisher can pick up in the game is the Desert Eagle Mark I handgun. Many thugs carry it during the Malta level. It holds 7 rounds implying it is chambered for .50 AE, but the Mark I was never offered in that caliber. Can be upgraded with a reflex sight, laser sight and match grade ammo. It looks to be the exact same model from Rainbow Six: Vegas, and like in Vegas it is incorrectly portrayed as DAO.

SIG-Sauer P226R

The SIG-Sauer P226R is the preferred sidearm of the Russian guards in the game. Is used by Black Arrow mercenaries as well as Tom Reed, Grim, Colonel Jeremy Prentiss and Major Shawn Robertson, two high-ranking Black Arrow Officers. Cannot be suppressed but can be upgraded to hold 20 rounds from it's starting 13. Can also be equipped with a laser sight and match grade ammo. Despite being called a "P228" and having a 13-round magazine it is quite visibly a full size SIG-Sauer P226R, which is evident by how the slide protrudes further out from the frame.

Submachine Guns

Submachine guns offer good accuracy, moderate range and stopping power. Some SMG's are classified as Machine Pistols. MP's have one advantage, that they can be fired when hanging from ledges, windows, pipes or while holding a human shield.

Česká Zbrojovka Vz. 361 Skorpion

The CZ Vz. 361 Skorpion appears in the game as "SKORPION" and is classified as a machine pistol. It can be upgraded with a better stock for improved accuracy, a reflex sight and hollow point ammunition. Is very accurate, but holds less ammo than the majority of the guns.

TsNIITochMash SR-2M Veresk

The TsNIITochMash SR-2M Veresk appears correctly as "SR-2M" in the game with the fore-grip removed. Can be upgraded with a gun stock, a laser sight and a reflex sight.

SR-2M - 9x21mm

Machine pistols can be fired while hanging from pipes, but the accuracy is terrible due to the one-handed grip.
Fisher executes a guard with an impressive (but not impossible) move.

Heckler & Koch MP5N

The Heckler & Koch MP5N appears as "MP5-N" in Conviction. Black Arrow soldiers use it as their primary weapon in the early levels of the game. Can be upgraded with a laser sight, reflex sight and hollow point ammo.

Heckler & Koch MP5SD-N1

The Heckler & Koch MP5SD-N1 appears in Conviction as "MP5-SD3". Can be upgraded with a gun stock, a 2x scope and hollow point ammo. The M68 Aimpoint reflex sight appears to be mounted backwards on this and several other submachine guns and rifles. The MP5SD-N1 is also used by the Navy SEALs during the intro to the Diwaniya, Iraq flashback level.

Heckler & Koch MP5SD6 - 9x19mm
The weapon in an early trailer.

Vic: My kids never draw me pictures or write or anything.
SEAL: They don't write 'cause you can't read, man.
Vic: Laugh it up. But when I get out of here-
Sam: You're going to kindergarten?
SEAL: You know I hear that they've got entrance exams in kindergarten now, Sam... I dunno if Vic's gonna make it in.
View through the 2X Scope of the MP5SD-N1. The characters always fire short (3 rounds) burst when using a gun while aiming down a scope. This enables to maintain accuracy with practically no recoil at all. This also applies to guns equipped with ACOGs.

Heckler & Koch MP7A1

The Heckler & Koch MP7A1 can be unlocked in the Extras menu. Can be equipped with a reflex sight, match grade ammo and an extended magazine, giving it 40 rounds from the original 20. It is the only suppressed machine pistol in Conviction. (NOTE: Because this weapon is suppressed and can be fired one-handed, it will be used during hand-to-hand takedowns, but because it does not have infinite ammo, no ammo will be lost from the magazine.)

Heckler & Koch UMP45

The Heckler & Koch UMP45 is carried by Third Echelon guards and members of the Washington Police. Called "UMP-45" but holds 30 rounds like the .40S&W version (UMP40). Can be upgraded with a suppressor, a laser sight and hollow point ammo.

Fisher reloads the UMP45 while taking cover. During reloads while taking cover the characters always change mags with the hand that is on the trigger. All the playable characters are ambidextrous shooters.

Assault Rifles & Battle Rifles


The SC3000 (an improved version of the SC-20K seen in the previous Splinter Cell games) is a heavily modified FN F2000 Tactical. The biggest difference can be seen in the weapon's magazine; instead of the F2000's STANAG mags the SC3000 uses new, horizontal magazines. The round control on the side and magazine design could suggest that the modifications were inspired by the Crye Associates MR-C caseless bullpup assault rifle (a mock-up of a never-produced rifle seen in two other Tom Clancy titles, namely G.R.A.W. and G.R.A.W. 2), which had a similarly extremely high rate of fire, magazine design, and a rotary cocking handle. The high stopping power remains even if it's suppressed. It also lacks any sort of ejection port, including the F2000's patented forward ejection port system, suggesting that this weapon uses caseless ammunition, but is not.
The SC3000 is carried by several Third Echelon Splinter Cells. Can be upgraded with a better gun stock, suppressor and hollow point ammo.

Barrett M468

The Barrett M468 is another usable assault rifle in the game. It is correctly referred to as the earlier M468 direct impingement model as noted by the fully shrouded HK style front post and its distinctive ARMS SIR bi-level free floating handguard. Carried by Third Echelon agents and Black Arrow mercenaries. Can be upgraded with a reflex sight, a suppressor and hollow point ammo.

TsNIITochMash SR-3 Vikhr

Referred to as "VIKHR", the SR-3 Vikhr is a compact assault rifle that can be unlocked in the Extras menu. Also seen in CO-OP in Kobin's hands when he's getting in the cargo plane. The Vikhr can be upgraded with 2X scope, gun stock and match grade ammo. Incorrectly appears as a submachine gun in the game.

Heckler & Koch G36C

The Heckler & Koch G36C is often used by Black Arrow mercenaries, Third Echelon guards during the climax and also by Kobin in the single player campaign. Can be upgraded with a 2X scope, a laser sight and match grade ammo.

The Fabrique Nationale SCAR-H CQC can be obtained through UPlay. It erroneously holds 30 rounds like the "L" variant. Can be upgraded with an ACOG (which appears as "4X scope" in the game), a laser sight and match grade ammo. The SCAR-H has the highest range of all weapons, but only two enemies can be executed with it. The trigger unit (pistol grip, trigger guard, and fire selector area) is modeled from a First Generation SCAR-H.

Fisher pulls the charging handle of the SCAR-H CQC. All the assault rifles and submachine guns use the same generic reload animation, where the characters imitate the pulling of a charging handle, which is always on the front parts of the gun. In this and some other cases, it would be much more easier and practical to hit the bolt-catch release button.
Kestrel holds a SCAR-H CQC fitted with a "4X Scope".
Round One. FIGHT!
Fisher clears a room with the SCAR.


The FAMAS G2 is another unlockable weapon in the game. It is one of the best assault rifles in the game due to it's high rate of fire and superb accuracy. The only disadvantage is that the FAMAS G2 cannot be suppressed. It can be upgraded with a 2X scope, laser sight and match grade ammo.

Izhmash AK-47

The AK-47 appears in the flashback level as Vic's primary weapon. Can be upgraded with an extended magazine (55 rounds), a 4X ACOG (which is anachronistic to the Desert Storm period), and match grade ammo. During the flashback level, it has unlimited ammunition. The model itself appears to be the same AK-47 from Rainbow Six: Vegas.

Archer wonders why does Black Arrow keep crates of AK-47's at their secret base in Salt Lake City, UT. The AK never appears in the hands of Black Arrow PMC's in story mode, or Deniable Ops.

Izhmash AKS-74U

The AKS-74U appears in the flashback level and in CO-OP. Carried by several Iraqi insurgents and mercenaries. Can be upgraded with a laser sight, extended mags, and hollow point ammo. It is also incorrectly a submachine gun in the game.

Benelli M3 Super 90

The Benelli M3 Super 90 shotgun appears as "M3" in the game and can be unlocked in the Extras menu for free. Holds 8 shells, is very effective in close quarters but is limited to pump-action fire-mode. Not very common among Black Arrow soldiers, because they prefer the automatic weapons, mainly the M468 and MP5N.

Mossberg 500 Cruiser

The Mossberg 500 Cruiser appears in the game as a usable shotgun. It is the only shotgun available in the standard edition of the game. Holds 8 shells like the Benelli M3 Super 90 even though it only has an 5-round mag-tube. Referred as the "M-500". Can be upgraded with a laser sight, a reflex sight and match grade ammo.

Franchi SPAS-12

The suppressed Franchi SPAS-12 can only be obtained if someone pre-orders the game. Can be upgraded with a gun stock, a 2X scope and match grade ammo. Appears in semi-automatic mode only.

Machine Guns

FN M240D

The FN M240D machine gun makes an appearance in the game as a mounted turret with auto-tracking capability. It is seen equipped with a heat-shield. The M240D is the stationary version of the M240 General Purpose Machine Gun.

SIG-Sauer P228

The inventory icon of the "P228" is a real SIG-Sauer P228. This could indicate that the weapon was planned to be the compact variant, but ended up as the full sized P226. The P228 also appears on the P.E.C. (short for Persistent Elite Creation) Challenge "Advanced Close Combat".

Beretta 92FS

Fisher is seen using a Beretta 92FS during the recapitulation of the events of the previous game. Note that him using a Beretta is a goof, because Fisher was using a Luger P08 in this particular scene in Double Agent.

And then fires the gun and kills his former boss and friend.

Glock 17

A Glock 17 can be seen on the Laser Sight upgrade's icon. The developers probably wanted to choose a "neutral" gun for the image of this upgrade, that's why they've selected a unusable pistol.

General Dynamics GAU-17/A Minigun

GAU-17/A Miniguns can be seen as part of turrets the Black Arrow teams use. One is set up at the EMP bombsite, the second one is seen at the White House. A Minigun is also seen on the helicopter during the chopper battle at Michigan Ave Reservoir, but it is strangely mounted as a nose turret.

Other Weapons

Mosin Nagant Rifle

A possible Mosin Nagant rifle with bayonet can be seen on several communist posters at the Yastreb Complex and at the Russian printing press.

Archer stops for a second to examine this vintage commie poster.

Toy Gun

Several Toy guns can be seen at the carnival at the Washington Monument used to shoot at targets. The guns resemble the M1928 Thompson submachine gun.

Fisher looks at the toy gun. He could kill some dudes with that toy gun too, probably.

Lever-action Rifle

A man is seen holding a lever-action rifle at the carnival when Sam meets Victor Coste. The rifle is probably a toy gun, maybe a prize he's won in a carnival game.

The man holds the rifle.


Fisher, Archer and Kestrel can use various equipment in the game to surprise the enemy or escape from a hot situation. The EMP grenade can be used to temporarily disable cameras, lights and the flashlights of the enemy guards. It can also stun the enemies just like a flashbang. The remote and proximity mine can stick to any surface and kill any enemy that comes near. The sticky camera can be used to observe areas and tag enemies, or lure guards into their death using its ability to play loud music. When an enemy hears the music, he will start to investigate and can be blown up when he moves close to the camera.

The available equipment in the game. From left to right: EMP grenade, frag grenade, flashbang, remote mine, sticky camera and proximity mine.


The firing technique Sam Fisher and the other playable characters use is called C.A.R. (Center Axis Relock). This system allows the operator to engage and disengage very quickly, while maintaining maneuverability and stability, and negating most of the recoil. The system was invented mainly for handguns, but works well with all kinds of weapons, small arms, longer guns or even melee weapons and OC sprays.

The close-quarters takedowns seen in the game (only the ones that involve using guns as melee weapons, the rest are Krav Maga moves) are also parts of the C.A.R. system. Due to the unique, bladed stance the C.A.R. shooting system enables extremely fast reloads, which are also seen in the game.

The C.A.R. technique was invented by Paul Castle, Chief Instructor of Sabre Tactical Training and Research, Inc. Paul Castle (born 1959) passed away on September 14th, 2011 after a long battle with cancer. Rest In Peace, Paul.
