Bodycount is a 2011 first-person shooter video game for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, developed and published by Codemasters using the proprietary Ego engine. While touted as the spiritual successor to Black, the lead designer of the latter game, Stuart Black, departed Codemasters partway through production. The plot concerns a soldier called "The Operative" who works for an agency known as "The Network," as he goes on a series of missions in war-torn nations to take down an enemy simply known as "The Target."
The following weapons appear in the video game Bodycount:
Bodycount features a standard two-weapon system, though with the twist that the player cannot simply pick up weapons they find; the only way to get new weapons is at drop points typically located at the start of each level. Weapons are unlocked as the player progresses through the story, with more powerful guns becoming available in later levels.
The game features a single generic pickup for all types of ammunition; precisely how this is possible is never gone into. As with Black, the "iron sight" function actually just zooms the screen in slightly without using the sight itself; in Bodycount's case there are no exceptions to this rule, since the game features no weapons with scopes or working iron sights.
A suppressed SIG-Sauer P226R is the fourth weapon available to the player and the only suppressed weapon in the game. It is shown with a 15-round magazine, and follows the common videogame "magic slide" rule of having the slide lock open by itself when the magazine is released.
Heckler & Koch USP Tactical
A suppressed Heckler & Koch USP Tactical pistol icon appeared in an old version of the HUD in one of the gameplay trailers. This could be either a severely incorrect icon for the final game's P226R, or a weapon which was scrapped during development. The final HUD design has a radar where this icon was shown.
Beretta 87FS Target Pistol
A fictional heavy pistol called the "CQB.45" is unlocked once the Africa missions are completed, it closely resembles a Beretta 87FS Target Pistol but with the slide-mounted safety of a Beretta 92FS. It has a 10-round magazine and can kill most regular enemies with a single shot; slightly odd behaviour, since even the game itself only claims it's a .45 and has a .45 SMG which doesn't do anything like as much damage - never mind the real thing is a .22 target pistol. In addition, the firing sound is closer to a cannon than a .45 pistol. As with the SIG, the CQB has a magic slide which locks open by itself when the magazine is released.
It appears to be copied from the "Redtail pistol" seen in Dead to Rights: Retribution, minus the chunky LAM-like front end.
Heckler & Koch MP7A1
One of the weapons initially given to the player, the Heckler & Koch MP7 is shown as good for "shredding" cover, but has limited range and is not particularly powerful or accurate. While it is modeled with 30-round magazines, it holds an impossible 55 rounds.
The TDI Vector, called the "KRISS" in game, becomes available once the Africa missions are complete. It is shown with a 50-round magazine, despite the game claiming it has a "low ammunition capacity."
The second starting weapon in the game, the Benelli M4 is called the "Super90" (with no space). The weapon is shown with side RIS rails mounted either side of the barrel ahead of the front grip, and the stock is shown collapsed. The M4 is correctly shown as semi-automatic; it does surprisingly little damage to scenery for a shotgun. It is shown with a 9-round tube magazine instead of the correct 7+1 (6+1 for 3" shells) for a military version, and ejects to the left.
Heckler & Koch G36K
The G36K is available from the beginning of the second level; the weapon is shown with the rail top carrying handle, but has four vents in the handguard, meaning it is not a G36C. As with the G36C in Black, the weapon fires in fullauto with the fire selector on semi-auto, and the reload features the traditional pointless pull of the charging handle. Like the MP7, it has a 55-round magazine.
Heckler & Koch G36C
Enemies carry the Heckler & Koch G36C as well as the G36K, seemingly with a preference for the shorter version.
IMI Tavor CTAR-21
An IMI Tavor CTAR-21 is the fifth weapon available, fitted with a RIS rail mounting iron sights. Despite being the compact version, it is described as the longest ranged assault rifle. The CTAR is able to fire in single-shot mode with a short pull of the trigger; a longer pull will fire in fullauto, but the weapon will stop firing after three rounds.
DSR-precision GmbH DSR-1
Exclusively used by enemy snipers, the DSR-precision GmbH DSR-1 is shown equipped with a bright red visible laser as per the standard videogame tradition of highly visible snipers. It is relatively difficult to get a shot of this weapon up close, as Bodycount has no weapons with magnifying scopes and snipers will switch to an MP7 if the player gets close to them.
FN Minimi SPW
The FN Minimi SPW, noted by the shorter barrel, retractable butt-stock, and missing carrying handle and STANAG adaptor, is the last weapon made available to the player, and is called the "Minimi" in the game. As with the real weapon, it has a 100-round belt box.
Handheld Browning M2
African "heavy" enemies carry an enormous HMG loosely based on the Browning M2, with the barrel shroud extended to almost the entire length of the barrel and an overhead grip / horizontal trigger layout similar to that used in the fictional M56 Smart Gun from Aliens.
Chinese "heavy" enemies instead carry what appears to be a handheld DShK heavy machine gun, with the same modified grip as the Browning; in addition, the ammunition box has been switched to the right-hand side.
GE M134 Minigun
In one of the Target bases, fictional attack helicopters are seen suspended from futuristic gantries, armed with GE M134 Miniguns in their chin installations. They are scaled up to around 20mm, and feature twin exposed ammunition belts. Such a twin-belt layout is used on some aircraft cannons to return spent casings to the ammunition drum instead of ejecting them, but both belts are shown with casings visible; there would only be ammunition in them at all if the helicopter was being readied for takeoff, and even then there would not be spent rounds on board.
RGD-5 hand grenade
The on-screen icon for grenades shows an RGD-5 hand grenade.
M18 smoke grenade
The grenade ammo pickup and the in-game grenade model are thick, cylindrical devices seemingly based on the M18 smoke grenade. Grenades in Bodycount can be thrown in timed or impact mode; Target soldiers have an additional impact version which produces a large blue-white explosion, presumably just to look futuristic since it is the same as the regular grenade in terms of damage and mechanics. Grenades are notable by their absence during the "throw grenade" animation.
