History Channel Civil War: Secret Missions (2008)

History Channel Civil War: Secret Missions is the sequel to The History Channel Civil War: A Nation Divided, it introduces a few new weapons, but shorter missions. In this game you can only carry two weapons at a time as opposed to all of them.

The following firearms were featured in the video game History Channel Civil War: Secret Missions.

Colt Army Model 1860

The Colt Army Model 1860 returns from the first game and is virtually unchanged, one difference with the 1860 Army and 1858 Remington is that, the player no longer fires and cocks the hammer with his off hand in free aim in this game, he just cocks it with his thumb when not using the iron sights.

Remington Model 1858

The Remington Model 1858 is the same as it was in the first game no changes.

Allen & Thurber Pepperbox

The Allen & Thurber Pepperbox was the precursor to the common day Revolving Pistol, instead of one cylinder with multiple chambers it had a cluster of barrels with multiple caps, and loads. It was very dangerous, as it had a defect similar to the Colt 1855 Revolving rifle, whereas one barrel could cause a chain explosion. It is a new weapon in the game, and is not very common, it is shown as being reloaded by inaccurately pulling the barrel of and swapping it with a new preloaded barrel one, also like all the guns in the series percussion caps are never replaced.

Sharps 1859

Both the Sharps 1859 Sniper Model and the Bayonet Model Field Gun return from the first game

Colt Model 1855

The Colt Model 1855 Revolving Rifle returns and is basically the same as it was in the first game, though it is more accurate this time.

Henry 1860

The Henry 1860 returns once again, same as the first game, though when reloaded it has a looped reload animation, where even if you fire the gun till its empty, the player will only reload 2 or 3 bullets, but yet the gun will be fully reloaded.

Springfield M1861 Musket

A Springfield Musket appears as a hidden weapon in the game. It can first be seen in the mission 'Doctor Gatling's Secret Weapon', located in some bushes near the wagon just outside the farm where the Gatling Gun was stationed. It uses the same reload animations as the Whitworth Sniper Rifle, and has a bayonet attached which can be used for melee.


Whitworth Rifle

The Whitworth Rifle appears in the game as the "Whitworth sniper rifle". The Whitworth Rifle was one of the more popular and more accurate sniper rifles during the civil war, and like all other guns in the game, it is reloaded without placing a percussion cap.

Percussion Shotgun

The Percussion Shotgun appears in the game as the "Double-barrel shotgun".

9 lb. Howitzer

The 9 lb. howitzer is the main artillery piece of the game and can be manned by the player in various levels. Interesting note is how the gun can be fired, reloaded, and fired very quickly by only one person when in reality, a whole crew would be needed.

Coffee Mill Gun

A Union "Coffee Mill Gun" appears during the mission 'Captain Blazer's Scouts.' It fires an infinite number of rounds, however it is possible for the weapon to "overheat", making it unusable.

Gatling Gun

The Gatling Gun was the world's first practical machine gun and saw great usage during the civil war. It has a rather slow firing rate and infinite ammunition.

Colt 1865 Gatling Gun - .44 Rimfire.
