I repeat, DO NOT steal this FAQ and claim it as your own. It is called 
plagiarism. This is a quick way for you to lose some money. All weapons 
are copyright of Electronic Arts.

(3)Introduction

In my FAQ I'm going to give the weapon descriptions as told by the game 
book. I will tell you my opinion of the gun. Then I will then give you 
the weapons damage, fire rate, and reload rate. Damage will be scored 
out of 5. Fire rate and reload rate will be scored out of slow, decent 
and fast. Also included it where to aim at on your enemies.

(4)Weapons

---Monkey Wrench--- 

"A plumber's best friend, the monkey wrench is surprisingly effective 
in close combat and it essential for opening manhole covers."

My Opinion: Surprisingly the monkey wrench is a powerful weapon. A few 
swings with this and the Russians will go down. The only downside is 
that you have to be close to use it. Aim for the enemies chest area.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 4/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Decent|
|Reload Rate| N/A   |
|Clip Size  | N/A   |
|-----------|-------|

---Revolver---

"This six-shot revolver is an American classic that packs a sizeable 
wallop.

My Opinion: More powerful than the pistol but the revolver lacks in 
clip size compared to the pistol. I wouldn't recommend this over the 
pistol due to the clip size. Aim for the enemies chest area.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 3/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Decent|
|Reload Rate| Slow  |
|Clip Size  |  6    |
|-----------|-------|

---Pistol---

"The Soviet standard sidearm fires 17 semi-automatic rounds per clip."

My Opinion: I prefer the pistol over the revolver due to how much 
larger a clip it has. The damage is not as good but if you can go for 
headshots you won't have a problem. Aim for the enemies head.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 2/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Fast  |
|Reload Rate| Fast  |
|Clip Size  | 17    |
|-----------|-------|

---Shotgun---

"This semi-auto shotgun it a close-range weapon that spreads it's blast 
over a wide area. The magazine holds 8 shells."

My Opinion: The shotgun is powerful at close range. Don't bother using 
it from far away because you won't hit anything. It can kill 
adversaries in one hit if your close enough. Just remember, the closer 
you are the more damage you do. Aim for the enemies chest area. 

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 4/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Decent|
|Reload Rate| Slow  |
|Clip Size  | 8     |
|-----------|-------|

---Assault Rifle---

"The most commonly used rifle in the Red Army. This basic but effective 
weapon holds 30 shots and does the job in most firefights."

My Opinion: The assault rifle used is similar to a modern AK-74, which 
replaced the AK-47 before the fall of the USSR. You may also notice 
that the AK-47 looks like the CV-47, the Chinese licensed version of 
the AK-47. You will be using the assault rifle a lot since that's what 
most of the Soviet's use during the course of the game. It's a good 
overall gun to use. Aim for the enemies head.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 4/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Decent|
|Reload Rate| Fast  |
|Clip Size  | 30    |
|-----------|-------|

---SMG---

"The sub machine gun used by the Soviet Special Forces fires it's 40 
round clip in the blink of an eye. Light and fast, this weapon is 
inaccurate but devastating.

My Opinion: The SMG is a good primary weapon to use if you don't like 
the assault rifle. Extremely fast and powerful, it also boasts a fairly 
big clip. However you will have to get close to use it because it is 
terribly inaccurate. Aim for the enemies chest.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 5/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Fast  |
|Reload Rate| Fast  |
|Clip Size  | 40    |
|-----------|-------|

---Sniper Rifle---

"Accuracy and power define the 7.62 mm Red Army sniper rifle. This 
weapon is equipped with a telescopic zoom that can zero in on human 
targets several blocks away.

My Opinion: Find a high vantage point and use the sniper rifles scope 
to stay out of danger. It's your fault if you miss a shot because the 
sniper rifle is deadly accurate. Never use it close up during a fire 
fight and always make sure you have a back up weapon. Aim for the 
enemies head.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 5/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Slow  |
|Reload Rate| Slow  |
|Clip Size  | 7     |
|-----------|-------|

---Molotov Cocktail---

"A crude incendiary weapon consisting of a glass bottle filled with 
flammable liquid, usually gasoline, and a rag stuffed in the mouth of 
the bottle. The rag is lit before throwing the bottle at the target. 
The bottle shatters on impact, spilling the burning liquid over the 
target." 

My Opinion: Very dangerous, and it can even hurt you if you are caught 
in the blast radius. Keep your distance and throw it. It's very 
powerful and will set foe's on fire. Toss a few where enemies are 
grouped together. If possible get up high before you can throw it since 
it goes in an arc. Aim for the enemies feet.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 5/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Decent|
|Reload Rate| N/A   |
|Clip Size  | N/A   |
|-----------|-------|

---Fragmentation Grenade---

"A simple but deadly device, the fragmentation grenade consists of a 
cast iron ball packed with black gunpowder. A short fuse it activated 
by pulling the pin before throwing the grenade. The resulting explosion 
hurls shreds of hot iron in every direction."

My Opinion: Equally as deadly as the molotov cocktail. Be sure not to 
be caught in the blast radius. Anything near it when it explodes will 
be hit with shrapnel. The fragmentation grenade is even capable of 
blowing up enemies into the air. As with the Molotov, use the 
fragmentation grenade on bunched up enemies and get a high vantage 
point if possible due to arcing when thrown. Aim for the enemies feet.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 5/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Decent|
|Reload Rate| N/A   |
|Clip Size  | N/A   |
|-----------|-------|

---C4 Plastic Explosives---

"This innocent looking stuff, similar to the appearance of gray 
modeling clay, packs enough punch to destroy entire buildings. C4 is 
highly prized and can be hard to obtain."

My Opinion: You can't use the C4 when you want to, only on mission 
objectives you have to blow up. Be sure to be far away when this stuff 
goes off. If caught in the blast you will take damage or die.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 5/5   |
|Fire Rate  | N/A   |
|Reload Rate| N/A   |
|Clip Size  | N/A   |
|-----------|-------|

---Mounted Machine Gun---

"The Red Army machine gun is a great weapon-if standing behind it. It 
provides constant long range area fire while partially shielding the 
operator."

My Opinion: Grab this bad boy when you get the chance. There are 2 
version of this weapon, mounted and un-mounted. You can find this in a 
bunker or some of the heavily armored Soviets carry it. Both act the 
same except one is moveable. The machine gun can inflict heavy damage 
and has a big clip but is inaccurate and slows you down. Use it to take 
out groups of enemies. Aim for the enemies chest.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 5/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Fast  |
|Reload Rate| Slow  |
|Clip Size  | N/A   |
|-----------|-------|

---Rocket Launcher---

"The RPG 7V grenade launcher is no peashooter. This unwieldy weapon is 
heavy, ugly and inaccurate, but it makes up for all it's shortcomings 
with one redeeming feature: the ability to penetrate armor."

My Opinion: Just like the machine gun, pick up the RPG whenever you 
can. The RPG shoots basically grenades except they are propelled and 
can go farther than you can throw a grenade. Use it to take out groups 
of enemies. Aim for the enemies feet due to splash damage.

|-----------|-------|
|Damage     | 5/5   |
|Fire Rate  | Slow  |
|Reload Rate| Slow  |
|Clip Size  | 1     |
|-----------|-------|
