Medal Of Honor: Breathrough features 38 weapons in total, each and every one effective and of some use in certain parts of the game.


Colt 45 (Allied)
The Colt 45 had to undergo some modifications before it was accepted by the US Army, but after that it was the most reliable pistol they used during the war and instantly became the weapon of choice for many U.S. troops. Regardless of a law that stated infantry were forbidden to use the Colt 45, it was never enforced, and many men still carried the Colt. The weapon carries seven rounds in each clip.

Walther P38 (Axis)
The P38 was designed as a replacement for the Luger but was never fully circulated due to a shortage in production It's a smaller pistol than the Colt, but still just as useful as a back-up weapon. Production was halted when French troops overran the Mauser factory were they were produced.

Webley Revolver (Allied - British)
The Mark I Webley Revolver was used by the British as a standard pistol for over sixty years. Armed with .455 caliber ammunition, this servers as an excellent side arm in battle. Just remember that it takes considerably longer than the Colt 45 to reload.

Nagant Revolver (Allied - Russian)
The Nagant Revolver holds seven 7.62x38mmR rounds and was used by the Russians during World War II. Designed by the Nagant Brothers of Liege, Belgium, the Russians adapted to it and it became a standard sidearm for troops and officers.

Beretta (Axis - Italian)
The M9 Beretta pistol is the standard Army sidearm. It replaced the M1911A1 pistol in .45 caliber. It is basically a Beretta 92F pistol and fires the 9mm NATO round. A semiautomatic, double-action pistol, the M9 is more lethal, lighter, and safer than its predecessors. The M9 is carried by crew-served weapon crewmen and by others who have a personal defense requirement, such as law enforcement personnel and aviators. It replaces the M1911A1 .45 caliber pistol and the .38 caliber revolver.


M1 Garand (Allied)
The M1 Garand, with it's very distinctive "ping", replaced the Springfield '03. as the standard issue Allied rifle. With a long range and powerful caliber, it made an excellent rifle, although not without its problems. This weapon cannot be reloaded manually -- you have to empty a clip before the rifle automatically reloads.

Springfield '03 Sniper Rifle (Allied)
The Springfield '03 Sniper Rifle was replaced by the M1 Garand in 1936 as an infantry rifle, but stayed on as a sniper rifle. With a combination of long range, accuracy and power, it is an ideal weapon for dealing with many situations. Some missions will require you to use this weapon almost exclusively -- one head shot from this rifle will kill most enemies, so rely on the Springfield to scope out areas for enemies, and thin out opposition before they spot you.

Kar-98K (Axis)
While reloading was slow to the bolt-action reload mechanics, the German Kar-98k's accuracy was more than enough to make up for it. Due to this accuracy a sniper version was soon introduced, and was the standard issue rifle of the German army.

Kar-98 Sniper Rifle (Axis)
The Kar-98 sniper rifle retains the same attributes as the Kar-98k, adding a telescopic sight for sniper capabilities. With its already reliable range, the Kar makes an excellent long-range weapon. Be wary when traveling through the forest and cities of Europe of enemies carrying it -- some of the best snipers in the Axis forces may be patrolling there.

Lee-Enfield Rifle (Allied - British)
Used by the British during World War II, this ten round, .303 cartridge, bolt action rifle serviced thousands of British troops. Weighing about 3kg, it was light and could be used by any type of regiment. The big ten round clip was also a plus.

Lee-Enfield Sniper Rifle (Allied - British)
Used by the British during World War II, this ten round, .303 cartridge, bolt action rifle serviced thousands of British troops. Weighing about 3kg, it was light and could be used by any type of regiment. The big ten round clip was also a plus.

SVT 40 Sniper Rifle (Allied - Russian)
This semi-automatic sniper rifle was created by the Soviets to give them an upgrade from the Mosin rifle. The barrel is 24.6 inches and had 7.62mm ammunition. Holding a ten round clip also gave the Russians the edge they needed in the war.

Mosin Nagant Rifle (Allied - Russian)
Originating from Russia, this bolt action rifle carried a 7.62 x 54R Russian Service cartridge, which held five rounds, and fired 7.62mm ammunition. This rifle was used by many of the Russian troops during World War II, but was later substituted by the SVT 38 and 40.

Carcano Rifle (Axis - Italian)
The Carcano "Balilla" rifle, with same caliber and manufacturing than the MODEL 91 and derivatives, was actually a bolt-action carbine, a shorter version of the M-91 rifle. It was intended as a training rifle and for the "Fascist Youth", but it also found use with the regular troops, due to its good accuracy, reliability and maneuverability.

Delisle Silenced Rifle (Allied - British)
Invented by William De Lisle in 1942, consisted of a heavily modified Enfield 303. The rifle used Colt 1911, 7 shot magazines and had an integral silencer. Was virtually silent at ranges over 50 yards and very accurate.


Thompson Submachine Gun (Allied)
The Thompson would have to be the most recognized SMG of the war; its unique design and construction made it a distinctive and powerful weapon. It carries 30 powerful .45 rounds per clip, and while it's real-life counterpart was a little heavy, it was still a very trustworthy weapon.

MP40 Submachine Gun (Axis)
The Maschinenpistole 40, most commonly known as the MP40, is a good match for the Thompson in spite of using a smaller 9mm round. While an accurate and dependable SMG, it's best used in close quarters, not long range attacks.

Sten Mark II (Allied - British)
Used by the Chinese Communists in the Korean War, the British also adapted to this submachine gun due to its simplicity. Firing 9mm Parabellum ammunition and carrying a thirty-two round detachable clip, this was an ideal weapon and a definite success to the war.

PPSH SMG (Allied - Russian)
This close quarters combat weapon was used by the Russians during World War II. It carried a thirty-five round stick magazine firing 7.62X25mm TT ammunition. Made in a hurry, it survived the cold weather of Russia, and was later used in Korea and Viet Nam.

Moschetto (Axis - Italian)
This weapon was designed after the Villar Perosa. It was a semiautomatic or automatic weapon, and it had 2 different triggers for selecting the fire. Barrel was fixed and the bolt was recoiled by gases. They could use different loaders: 10, 20 or 40 magazines, and these could be loaded by hand or by specific tools. The first 500 MAB38 had also a bayonet.


Browning Automatic Rifle a.k.a. "BAR" (Allied)
While the BAR was used during World War I and many were in service during World War II, a newer version was introduced that boasted a high rate of fire and a more powerful caliber. The BAR carries 20 rounds per clip, and can mow down enemies in a hurry.

StG44 Sturmgewehr (Axis)
The German StG44 was in fact the very first assault rifle ever made, and aided in the design of the modern assault rifles we see today. While Hitler turned away the StG44 at first, it proved to be a very effective weapon on the Eastern front against the Soviets and was immediately put into service. It may not be a match for the American BAR in terms of range, but its high rate of fire makes the StG44 an exceptional weapon.

Vickers-Berthier (Allied - British)
This machine gun was produced from 1929 to 1945. It consisted of a 30 round box magazine that could fire 500 rds/min. This weapon was a big advantage to the British, Allied forces during World War II.

Breda Heavy Machine Gun (Axis - Italian)
The Breda used a tray which was pulled through the mechanism akin to the Hotchkiss strip feed. Unlike the strip feed though, the spent cartridge cases were replaced in the tray after firing, for no apparent reason whatsoever.


Mark II Frag Grenade (Allied)
This was the standard issue grenade for U.S. soldiers, and could inflict lethal damage to anyone within 50 yards. An excellent choice for killing at long range.

Stielhandgrendate (Axis)
The "Stick Hand Grenade" of the Germans could cause damage both from the explosion as well as shrapnel from its shell. Like the Frag Grenade, these are extremely effective for inflicting damage at long range, especially when faced with groups of enemy soldiers.

Mills Grenade (Allied - British)
The No. 36M anti-personal fragmentation grenade was used by British troops during World War II. It had a .22 caliber rimfire cartridge, a very short fuse, and a detonator. Shrapnel could kill enemies up to eighty yards away, which is why it was used during the war.

F1 Grenade (Allied - Russian)
The Russian F1 Fragmentation Grenade was used by the Russians during World War II. Effective up to 200 meters away, this was definitely one of the weapons that lead the Russians to victory.

Bomba A Mano Grenade (Axis - Italian)
This was the standard-issue hand grenade that all Italian soldiers used throughout World War II. It was effective up to 200 meters away.


Bazooka (Allied)
One of the earliest rocket launchers, the bazooka was basically a tube that fired a rocket-propelled grenade through the air at long range. You won't use these often, but you'll be glad to have one if faced with heavy artillery blocking your way.

Panzerschreck (Axis)
The German answer to the bazooka, the Panzerschreck was a larger version of the Panzerfaust (seen in Return to Castle Wolfenstein). A shield in front of the weapon has a small hole cut out allowing you to put the target directly within your sights.

PIAT (Allied - British)
The PIAT was a simple, short-range infantry anti-tank weapon made possible by the development of hollow- or shaped-charge projectiles. The PIAT round was propelled by a huge spring and spigot which ignited a cartridge within the tail of the projectile. Heavy and awkward to handle, it was difficult to load and kicked violently when fired.

Winchester Shotgun (Allied)
Your basic pump-action shotgun, the Winchester will do an immense amount of damage when used at close range.


M1919A4 .30 Caliber Mounted Machine Gun (Allied)
The air-cooled M191A4 is an American machine gun that was perfect for attaching to jeeps just before heading out on patrols. While no match for the German MG42's, they were still used on the front lines when a reliable machine gun was needed. When you get your hands on one of these, you'll be happy to see they come with an unlimited supply of ammo and never need to be reloaded. MG42 Mounted Machine Gun (Axis)
The German MG42, with a rate of fire 3 times greater than any U.S. machine gun, was a highly feared weapon out on the front lines. It uses a unique delayed blowback firing system to archive it's high rate of fire, and when used in the right situation, can deliver a devastating blow to enemy forces. Like the M1919A4, any mounted MG42's you come across will have unlimited ammo and never need reloading.

Granatwerfer (Axis)
Used by the Germans during the war, this heavy-grenade launcher was used to shell enemy camps, regiments, sqauds, and sometimes even tanks.

Modello (Axis - Italian)
This was the Italian's artillery during World War II. It could fire up to a range of 13,675 yards and had a shell that weighed 13.9 lbs.

Bohler (Axis - Italian)
Used by the Italians during World War II, this mountable gun proved very useful against enemy infantry and even vehicles.
