Call of Duty 3
Call of Duty 3 is the third entry in the Call of Duty first-person shooter series, and the first COD title by Treyarch. The game takes place during World War II, like its predecessors. The game was released only for the consoles.
The singleplayer campaign is about the Battle of the Falaise Pocket, where the player can fight as an American, a British, a Canadian and a Polish soldier.
The following weapons are used in the video game Call of Duty 3:
The M1911A1 is the standard sidearm of the Allied Forces. It is only available in multiplayer.
The Walther P38 is the standard sidearm of the German Forces, available only in Multiplayer.
The FG 42 is seen on German soldiers in the second mission and scoped versions can be found in a few levels.
The Gewehr 43 is a German semi-automatic rifle. Only seen in the 2 forest levels.
The Karabiner 98k is the service rifle of Axis forces. The scoped version is only available in 'The Island' level. Note that in multiplayer levels, the safety is always depicted in the "ON" position, which obviously should render the weapon unable to fire. There is a modeling error where in third person the front sight appears to be hooded, but when its picked up there is no hood over the front sight in first person.
The Kar98k appears also with a scope.
Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk I
The Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk I is the service rifle of British, Canadian, and Polish forces. A unique sniper version is used by Private Cole in the Laison River level.
The main rifle of American forces is the M1 Garand. Used in almost all of the American levels. There is a modeling error in first person where it is all wood with the exception of the trigger group on the bottom of the stock when there should be the bottom of the internal magazine.
The sniper rifle of the Americans is the M1903A4 Springfield. Available in The Forest and Chambois levels. Used by a soldier to snipe a German radio op in the cutscene to 'Crossroads'.
The Sturmgewehr 44 appears in the game as the MP44. Used by German support gunners, mostly seen in the last missions of the game.
The MP40 is the submachine gun of German forces.
Sten Mk II
The Sten Mk II is the main SMG for the British and Canadian armies. When idle, it is held from the assembly in front of the trigger guard, but when aiming down the sights it is held from the handguard. Either way, this is the first Call of Duty game where the Sten is held properly instead of being held from the magazine.
The Thompson Submachine Gun is used in almost all of American levels. Uses an incorrect 20 round magazine (20's were issued to paratroopers). Note that the Thompson in the coverart at the top of this page is actually a M1928A1, a common trope of WWII shooter games.
Winchester Model 1897 "Trench Gun"
The Winchester Model 1897 "Trench Gun" is used by the American and British forces. Interestingly, in an empty reload, the player character loads five shells, racks the pumping handle and then inserts a sixth extra shell, while during mid-reloads he just loads the shells required appropriately. This was the only game in the entire series until Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) to feature the correct reloading process of pumping the handle exclusively during empty reloads. The weapon is incorrectly modeled with the ejection port mirrored to the left side.
The Bren gun is used by the British, Canadian and Polish forces.
The Browning M2HB is used once in the campaign, in the beginning of the Falaise Road level.
The Browning M1919A6 is used by support gunners of the Allied Forces in Multiplayer Mode and as an emplaced machine gun in the last two levels. The M1919A4 is seen mounted on Sherman tanks.
M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle
The Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) is used by American support gunners; it is available in in The Island and Chambois levels. The bonus materials label it as the M1918A2 version, even though the menu image and the first-person model depict the earlier M1918. However, the third-person model during gameplay does actually show the M1918A2 variant.
The MG34 is used by support Gunners of the Axis Forces in Multiplayer mode; it is also Mounted on Tiger and Panzer tanks. It can be used in 'The Mace' level. The game's bonus materials incorrectly refer it to as a light machine gun; it is actually a general-purpose machine gun.
The MG42 is the standard mounted machine gun of German forces, and is used frequently by Allied troops as well. The game's bonus materials incorrectly refer it to as a light machine gun.
The Vickers K is seen mounted on SAS jeeps.
The M9A1 Bazooka is the anti-tank weapon of the American Forces.It is usable at the end of the campaign, to destroy armored cars and tanks in the Chambois level.
The anti-tank weapon of the German forces is the Panzerschreck without the distinctive blast shield. Used in the levels Falaise Road and The Mace.
Gewehrgranatengerät rifle grenade launcher
The Gewehrgranatengerät Rifle Grenade Launcher is issued to the Wehrmacht Rifleman in Multiplayer, used on the Karabiner 98 Kurz.
M7 rifle grenade launcher
The M7 Rifle Grenade Launcher is used briefly by Dixon in campaign to open a path in the mission The Crossroads and is available to the US Rifleman class in multiplayer.
Mk 2 hand grenade
The Mk 2 hand grenade is the standard hand grenade of the Allies in the game.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
The Model 24 Stielhandgranate is the standard hand grenade of the Axis forces.
Model 39 Eihandgranate
The Waffen SS soldier that attacks Nichols in Crossroads is dispatched with his own Model 39 Eihandgranate. It is never usable outside of this quick time event.
No. 74 Anti-Tank Grenade S.T.
The "Sticky Bomb" in multiplayer is a British No. 74 Anti-Tank Grenade S.T. "Sticky Bomb" grenade.
AN/M8 HC smoke grenade
The AN/M8 HC smoke grenade can be used for concealment.
8-cm Granatwerfer 34
A Granatwerfer 34 Mortar must be used in the mission "The Forest".
8.8 cm FlaK 37
Several FlaK 37 88mm antiaircraft guns, appear in the in-game description as FlaK 36/37, are seen during the "Night Drop" and "Laison River" missions. The 37 was the more dedicated antiaircraft variant of the infamous 88mm FlaK guns, equipped with an additional gun-laying system with pointer dials. The same models were reused in Call of Duty: World at War.
8.8 cm Pak 43/41
At the end of the final mission (Chambois) you can use a 8.8 cm Pak 43/41, in addition to the M9A1 Bazooka, to take out German tanks and armored cars.
15 cm Nebelwerfer 41
Two 15 cm Nebelwerfer 41 multiple rocket launchers can be seen in the mission "Mayenne Bridge".
Hitler Youth Knife
In the mission "Crossroads" a Waffen SS soldier ambushes you with a surprisingly detailed Hitlerjugend knife.
