Assault Rife

7.62x51mm assault rifle is designed for close-quarters combat, utilizing a shortened barrel and 'bullpup' design for increased maneuverability. An additional underhand 20mm HE launcher increases the rifle's effectiveness against a variety of targets.


A portable flamethrower that discards the old and highly dangerous backpack fuel delivery system in favor of pressurized canisters of napalm. Inexperienced agents will find that a flamethrower can be difficult to maneuver, however.

Guided Explosive Projectile (GEP) Gun

The GEP gun is a relatively recent invention in the field of armaments: a portable, shoulder-mounted launcher that can fire rockets and laser guide them to their target with pinpoint accuracy. While suitable for high-threat combat situations, it can be bulky for those agents who have not grown familiar with it.

Sniper Rifle

The military sniper rifle is the superior tool for the interdiction of long-range targets. When coupled with the proven 30.06 round, a marksman can achieve tight groupings at better than 1 MOA (minute of angle) depending on environmental conditions.

Combat Knife

An ultra-high carbon stainless steel knife.


The mini-crossbow dart is a favored weapon for many 'wet' operations; however, silent kills require a high degree of skill.

The mini-crossbow was specifically developed for espionage work, and accepts a range of dart types (normal, tranquilizer, or flare) that can be changed depending upon the mission requirements


crowbar. Hit someone or something with it. Repeat. <UNATCO OPS FILE NOTE GH010-BLUE> Many crowbars we call 'murder of crowbars.' Always have one for kombat. Ha. -- Gunther Hermann

Lighweight Attacks Munition (LAM)

A multi-functional explosive with electronic priming system that can either be thrown or attached to any surface with its polyhesive backing and used as a proximity mine. <UNATCO OPS FILE NOTE SC093-BLUE> Disarming a proximity device should only be attempted with the proper demolitions training. Trust me on this. -- Sam Carter <END NOTE>

Sawed-off Shotgun

The sawed-off, pump-action shotgun features a truncated barrel resulting in a wide spread at close range and will accept either buckshot or sabot shells.


A rather nasty-looking sword.

Assault Shotgun

The assault shotgun (sometimes referred to as a 'street sweeper') combines the best traits of a normal shotgun with a fully automatic feed that can clear an area of hostiles in a matter of seconds. Particularly effective in urban combat, the assault shotgun accepts either buckshot or sabot shells.

Stealth Pistol

The stealth pistol is a variant of the standard 10mm pistol with a larger clip and integrated silencer designed for wet work at very close ranges.

Plasma Rifle

An experimental weapon that is currently being produced as a series of one-off prototypes, the plasma gun superheats slugs of magnetically-doped plastic and accelerates the resulting gas-liquid mix using an array of linear magnets. The resulting plasma stream is deadly when used against slow-moving targets.

Scrambler Grenade

The detonation of a GUARDIAN scramble grenade broadcasts a short-range, polymorphic broadband assault on the command frequencies used by almost all bots manufactured since 2028. The ensuing electronic storm causes bots within its radius of effect to indiscriminately attack other bots until command control can be re-established. Like a LAM, scramble grenades can be attached to any surface.

Throwing Knives

A favorite weapon of assassins in the Far East for centuries, throwing knives can be deadly when wielded by a master but are more generally used when it becomes desirable to send a message. The message is usually 'Your death is coming on swift feet.'

Riot Prod

The riot prod has been extensively used by security forces who wish to keep what remains of the crumbling peace and have found the prod to be an valuable tool. Its short range tetanizing effect is most effective when applied to the torso or when the subject is taken by surprise

EMP Grenade

The EMP grenade creates a localized pulse that will temporarily disable all electronics within its area of effect, including cameras and security grids. <UNATCO OPS FILE NOTE JR134-VIOLET> While nanotech augmentations are largely unaffected by EMP, experiments have shown that it WILL cause the spontaneous dissipation of stored bioelectric energy. -- Jaime Reyes <END NOTE>

Gas Grenade

Upon detonation, the gas grenade releases a large amount of CS (a military-grade 'tear gas' agent) over its area of effect. CS will cause irritation to all exposed mucous membranes leading to temporary blindness and uncontrolled coughing. Like a LAM, gas grenades can be attached to any surface.

Pepper Gun

The pepper gun will accept a number of commercially available riot control agents in cartridge form and disperse them as a fine aerosol mist that can cause blindness or blistering at short-range.


The PS20 is a disposable, plasma-based weapon developed by an unknown security organization as a next generation stealth pistol. Unfortunately, the necessity of maintaining a small physical profile restricts the weapon to a single shot. Despite its limited functionality, the PS20 can be lethal at close range.

Dragon's Tooth Sword

The true weapon of a modern warrior, the Dragon's Tooth is not a sword in the traditional sense, but a nanotechnologically constructed blade that is dynamically 'forged' on command into a non-eutactic solid. Nanoscale whetting devices insure that the blade is both unbreakable and lethally sharp.

Light Anti-Tank Weapon (LAW)

The LAW provides cheap, dependable anti-armor capability in the form of an integrated one-shot rocket and delivery system, though at the expense of any laser guidance. Like other heavy weapons, the LAW can slow agents who have not trained with it extensively.


10mm ammo

With their combination of high stopping power and low recoil, pistols chambered for the 10mm round have become the sidearms of choice for paramilitary forces around the world.

12-Guage Buckshot

Standard 12 gauge shotgun shell; very effective for close-quarters combat against soft targets, but useless against body armor.

20mm HE ammo

The 20mm high-explosive round complements the standard 7.62x51mm assault rifle by adding the capability to clear small rooms, foxholes, and blind corners using an underhand launcher.


A gyroscopically stabilized rocket with limited onboard guidance systems for in-flight course corrections. Engineered for use with the GEP gun.

Prod Charger

A portable charging unit for the riot prod.

WP Rockets

The white-phosphorus rocket, or 'wooly peter,' was designed to expand the mission profile of the GEP gun. While it does minimal damage upon detonation, the explosion will spread a cloud of particularized white phosphorus that ignites immediately upon contact with the air.

Tranquilizer Darts

Tranquilizer Darts A mini-crossbow dart tipped with a succinylcholine-variant that causes complete skeletal muscle relaxation, effectively incapacitating a target in a non-lethal manner.


Its high velocity and accuracy have made sniper rifles using the 30.06 round the preferred tool of individuals requiring 'one shot, one kill' for over fifty years.

Flare Darts

Mini-crossbow flare darts use a slow-burning incendiary device, ignited on impact, to provide illumination of a targeted area.

Plasma Clip

A clip of extruded, magnetically-doped plastic slugs that can be heated and delivered with devastating effect using the plasma gun.

12 guage sabot shell

A 12 gauge shotgun shell surrounding a solid core of tungsten that can punch through all but the thickest hardened steel armor at close range; however, its ballistic profile will result in minimal damage to soft targets.

Napalm Canister

A pressurized canister of jellied gasoline for use with flamethrowers. <UNATCO OPS FILE NOTE SC080-BLUE> The canister is double-walled to minimize accidental detonation caused by stray bullets during a firefight. -- Sam Carter <END NOTE>

Pepper Cartridge

'ANTIGONE pepper spray will incapacitate your attacker in UNDER TWO SECONDS. ANTIGONE -- better BLIND than DEAD. NOTE: Keep away from children under the age of five. Contents under pressure.'


Thermoptic Camo

Integrating woven fiber-optics and an advanced computing system, thermoptic camo can render an agent invisible to both humans and bots by dynamically refracting light and radar waves; however, the high power drain makes it impractial for more than short-term use, after which the circuitry is fused and it becomes useless.


A disposable lockpick. The tension wrench is steel, but appropriate needles are formed from fast congealing polymers. <UNATCO OPS FILE NOTE AJ006-BLACK> Here's what they don't tell you: despite the product literature, you can use a standard lockpick to bypass all but the most high-class nanolocks. -- Alex Jacobson


A disposable electronics tool. By using electromagnetic resonance detection and frequency modulation to dynamically alter the flow of current through a circuit, skilled agents can use the multitool to manipulate code locks, cameras, autogun turrets, alarms, or other security systems.

Ballistic Armor

Ballistic armor is manufactured from electrically sensitive polymer sheets that intrinsically react to the violent impact of a bullet or an explosion by 'stiffening' in response and absorbing the majority of the damage. These polymer sheets must be charged before use; after the charge has dissipated they lose their reflexive properties and should be discarded.

Hazmat Suit

A standard hazardous materials suit that protects against a full range of environmental hazards including radiation, fire, biochemical toxins, electricity, and EMP. Hazmat suits contain an integrated bacterial oxygen scrubber that degrades over time and thus should not be reused.

Tech Goggles

Tech goggles are used by many special ops forces throughout the world under a number of different brand names, but they all provide some form of portable light amplification in a disposable package.


COUGHING NAILS -- when you've just got to have a cigarette.
