Battlefield 2 US Weapons

Here is a full list of all the US weapons in Battlefield 2.

US Combat Knife

The soldier's best friend, the combat knife has been in use since the earliest days of human conflict. Next to the rifle, the knife is the primary tool in any soldier's kit and is relied upon in many situations: combat, self-defense, and survival. Most modern knives are equipped with a seven-inch, ever-shrap stainless steel blade and a lightweight resin handle, and some versions contain a small survival kit which includes items such as a compass, fishing line, and matches. While antiquated in the company of other 21-st Century weapons, soldiers in all of the world's armies are still taught knife combat skills in basic training. There are numerous variations of the combat knife. Most, however, include a curved one-sided blade and hand guard.

M24: 7.62mm Sniper Rifle

As a sniper you can move quickly when you need to, but the key to your deadliness is staying still. Wearing camouflage allows you to remain concealed in a good hiding spot so you can pluck off enemies from a dstiance without being spotted. Or sneak through tall grass and plant claymore mines for unsuspecting enemy troops. The claymore explodes when somebody walks in front of it.

Predator - Anti-Tank

The Predator is a short-range, one-man, portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missile system designed to defeat current and future main battle tanks. Used extensively by the US Marine Corps since its introduction in 2003, this weapon gives a single Marine the ability to engage and destroy the most advanced tanks at short range—between 17 and 600 meters (50 ft. to 1/3 mile). The system has a “soft launch” capability for firing from enclosures and weighs only 20 lbs, which makes it easy to transport and shoulder-fire. The Predator’s deadly advantage is its top-attack mode, whereby the missile overflies its target and fires its warhead directly onto the more vulnerable armor at the top of a tank.

M9 Berrtta: 9mm Pistol

In the early 1980s the US Military began looking for a new sidearm to replace its inventory of aging WWII-era pistols and revolvers and the various types of ammunition used by these sidearms. Serveral rounds of pistol trials were held in 1983 and 1984 between select foreign and domestic firearms companies until the Joint Services Small Arms Program awarded a contract to Beretta for their model 92FS in 1984. Bearing the new designation M9, the pistol and its 9mm ammuniation quickly became the standard for all US forces. It's lightweight, durable, and can fire its 15-round clip in seconds. During its introduction, the M9 was surrounded by controversy. Some Americans didn't want Italian made guns, while others felt that the older .45 cal bullet was superior to the M9's 9mm. The safety and magazine release buttons were reversible, allowing left-handed users to easily operate the M9.


Developed by the US Military during the Vietnam War, the Claymore is a directional fragmentation mine designed to be used as a defensive weapon against enemy infantry. Unlike most mines that lay prone and explode upward, the Claymore stands vertical and projects its blast forward. Rectangular in shape and slightly curved, the mine's small 8" x 3" plastic casing contains C4 explosive which, when detonated, fires shrapnel in a large fan-shaped pattern to produce a casualty radius of up to 100 meters. While the Claymore is normally fired on command with a handheld electric inititaor, it can be also configured to detonate by tripwire. A non-lethal version of the Claymore, known as "modular crowd control munition," is currently in use with the military police force in Iraq. Instead of firing lethal shrapnel, the weapon fires rubber balls.


Defibrillator, device that delivers an electrical shock to the hear in order to stop certain forms of rapid heart rhythm distrurbances. The shock changes a fibrillation to an organized rhythm or changes a very rapid and inneffective cardiac rhythm to a slower, more effective one. In a typically hospital defibillator, voltage stored by the defibrillator pushes electrical current through the chest to deliver a muscle-contracting jolt to the hear; the current is transmitted by means of electrodes or paddles placed on the chest. Automated external defibrillators are now available for use by persons with minimal medical training in emergencies when medical professionals are unavailable, and miniaturization has led to the development of implanted internal defibrillator (also called an internal cardioverter).

C4-Detonator and Explosives

C4 is a common variety of military plasitc explosive specifically designed for demolition. Soft and malleable, C4 can be applied to irregular and/or curved surfaces in order to efficiently cut structural beams and girders-or used to breach steel or armor-reinforced doors and entryways. Requiring a detonator for use, C4 is relatively safe on its own. It's immune to bullets and open flame and can be stored or planted safely in any type of climate. C4 is commonly packed in one-lb block charges and only a few are needed to destroy an enemy building, bridge, or ship. C4 was developed during WWII and was used primilary by army engineers to demolish buildings and bridges. In the late 20th Century, terriorsts used C4 during various attacks on civilian targets in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.

G3: 7.62mm Rifle

When NATO adopted 7.62mm small arms ammuniation in the mid-1950s, West Germany was forced to rearm its soldiers with weapons that could accomodate the new standard. Unbale to produce its own combat rfile at the time, the West German government settled on a design from Spain - one which was actually derived from an unrealized WWII German assault rifle known as the StG. 45. In gernal, the G3 is known to be a reliable and versatile general issue wepaon. It is easy to maintain, easy to manufacture, and can be equipped with a bipod or various detachable scope mounts.

G36C: Compact Assault Rifle

The G36C was developed during the early 1990s by Heckler and Koch Inc., the famous Germany firearms manufacturer. The company set out to develop a new standard assualt rifle for the Bundeswehr (German Army), and succeeded in creating a flexiable, reliable, exportable rifle. Based on conventional rifle designs, the G36C is largely constructed from steel-reinforced polymers to achieve its light weight of 2.6kg (6lbs) and features a shortended barrel and folding stock for use in confined firefights. Its 5.56mm ammunition is fed from a 30-round box magazine and its firing options include single shots, two- or three-round bursts, or full automatic fire. The G36C was offically adopted by the Bundeswehr in 1995. In 1999, Spain adopted its slightly modified exsport version as its standard infantry rifle.

Mk3A1 Jackhammer

The Jackhammer is one of the world's first fully automatic 12 gauge shotguns. Patented in 1987, the weapon has undergone almost ten years of research, development, and refinement. Even today, it has yet to enter full production and very few have been fielded by the US Military. Constructed mostly of Rynite (an advanced plasitc) to reduce weight, the Jackhammer is fed by a 10-shot, detachable cylinder called an "ammo cassette," which functions much like the cylinder in a six-shot revolver; it is hand- or factory-loaded, attached to the body of the weapon, and it rotates automatically during firing to align the next shell with the barrel. The Jackhammer's ammo cassette is compatible with standard, magnum, and steel slugs shells.

M4A1 Carbine

In the early 1990s the US military establishment decided to develop a new firearm for use by specialized units. What was needed was a lightweight, comfortable weapon that would be easier to handle and carry than M16A2 rifle yet had more close-quarter dropping power than a handgun. In 1994 the US military adopted the Colt M4A1 Carbine. Essentially a modified version of the M16A2, the M4A1 is ligther, shorter, and can be set to either single or full automatic fire. Modifiable with a laser sight, night vision, or a silencer, the M4A1 is an ideal weapon for units such as the US Navy SEALS or the Army's Delta Force. Not exclusive to special operations units, the M4A1 is also used by non-infantry troops such as vehichle crews, clerks, and staff officers. A vertical foregrip can be attached under the barrel of the M4A1. In combination with its collaspible stock it provides more control in close-quater firefights.

M203: Rifle Gernade Launcher

The M203 grenade launcher is a breech-loaded, single-shot, pump-action weapon that attaches to either the M16A2 assault rifle or M4A1 Carbine. Essentially a high-powered accessory, the M203’s assembly is fitted underneath the barrel forward of the ammunition clip and includes its own trigger mechanism, which allows the M203 to be operated as a completely independent weapon. The launcher was fielded in 1970 to replace the Army and Marine Corp’s older M79, a weapon that had to be carried in addition to a soldier’s assault rifle. Firing a variety of 40mm ammunition types including explosive, illuminating, and signaling rounds, the M203 provides the individual assault team with the firepower of several mortars without the weight of additional equipment.

M240 Machine Gun

Produced by Fabrique Nationale, a Belgian firearms company, the M240 is a medium machine gun which can be vehicle-mounted or carried by individual infantrymen. Introduced into service in the late 1990s, the M240 is based on the time-proven mechanics of the WWII-era M1918 BAR. It’s extremely rugged and reliable in harsh battlefield conditions, and at 21 kg (40 lbs) it can easily accompany an infantry squad during assault or suppression missions. The M240 is belt-fed and air-cooled, and its rate of fire can be switched between 650 and 950 rounds per minute. In the late 1990s, the US Army selected the M240 as a replacement for the Vietnam-era M60 machine gun.The M240 has seen extensive use with American forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. It’s currently the standard mounted weapon on the M3 Bradley fighting vehicle.

M249 SAW

Light Machine Gun: The M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) is a powerful, accurate, and mobile base of fire weapon whose purpose is to support small squads during offensive operations. Adopted by the US Army and Marine Corps in 1983 to replace the heavier M60 machine gun, the SAW is capable of producing a large volume of fire with accuracy and handling approaching that of a rifle. With a simple flick of a switch the SAW’s rate of fire can be set to 750 or 1,000 rounds per minute and it has a maximum range of approximately two miles. At 15 lbs, it can be fired from the shoulder, hip, or underarm position. In terms of firepower, one SAW is equivalent to 15 additional riflemen.While the SAW’s standard ammunition feed is by a belt, it is also capable of firing ammunition from an M16 magazine inserted into the bottom of the weapon.

US Mine

After the tank's apperance in WWI, the landmine was developed to counter its effectiveness and dominance on the battlefield. The weapon proved a success during that war and it was further innovated during WWII, when millions of mines were planted on various European and North African battlefields. Modern landmines are smaller, lighters, and technologically superior to these older models, and they can be set to immobilize a tank or vehicle or completely destroy it. To comply with international treaties, most possess self-destruct or self-neutralization features in order to prevent friendly and non-combatant casualities. Landmines are emplaced by vehicle-mounted launchers, or dopped by helicopters or fixed wing aircraft.

MP5 Sub-Machine Gun

Developed by a German firearms company in 1966, the MP5 submachine gun is one of the most famous and widespread weapons of its class. It has been adopted by law enforcement, security, and military units in more than 50 nations, and has spun off numerous clones for the civilian gun market. Weighing six lbs and measuring only 13 inches, the MP5 has considerably low recoil and can be easily hand- or shoulder-fired. It is highly accurate despite its short barrel and features single fire, two- or three-round burst, and full automatic modes. The MP5’s design allows for a variety of accessories, such as night vision, which allows the weapon to meet any mission requirement. The MP5 has never been adopted by the German Army. Instead, it chose the famous Israeli Uzi 9mm as its official submachine gun.

Remington 11-87

The Remington 11-87 was introduced to the military and law enforcement community in 1987 as an improved and more durable version of previous combat shotguns. Designed to fire the powerful three-inch magnum shell, the 11-87 offers better range and packs more stopping power than its predecessors. It fires non-lethal munitions such as beanbags or rubber ball projectiles in addition to traditional buckshot rounds. The magnum shell, containing more pellets and gunpowder than traditional shells, increases the 11-87’s accuracy by creating a larger blast pattern. Gas operated and semi-automatic, this weapon is devastating in any firefight.The 11-87’s semi-automatic functionality allows it to fire after every pull of the trigger.

Smoke Gernade

A smoke grenade produces either white or colored smoke for short periods of time. Although similar in design to the fragmentation grenade, the smoke grenade has no explosive potential. Smoke is produced from a delayed chemical reaction within the grenade. Troops typically use smoke grenades to conceal their movement from the enemy, such as instances when they must cross open ground or charge a defended position. Smoke grenades are also effective as a ground-to-ground or a ground-to-air signal and a target or landing zone marking device. During the Vietnam War, injured American soldiers relied upon colored smoke grenades to signal medical evacuation helicopters.
