Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2
Nice, but where's the trigger?
This article or section is incomplete. You can help IMFDB by expanding it.
The following weapons can be seen in the video game Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 and its expansion pack Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge. Note that even though is a real-time strategy game, guns can be seen in gameplay, concept art and several cutscenes.
The Colt M1911A1 is seen a few times in the game. First in the hands of an American Officer at a Nuclear Missile Base in the Intro, who draws his weapon on the other Officer after falling under the mind control of Yuri. In the intro for Allied Mission 10, General Carville (Barry Corbin) holsters two custom 1911A1s with pearl grips before he is killed by a Soviet "Crazy Ivan" suicide-bomber.
In the Allied Ending Cutscene, Special Agent Tanya (Kari Wuhrer) is seen holding two SIG-Sauer P226s when she and a team of Allied Soldiers storm Premier Romanov's office.
In the intro Cutscene for Soviet Mission 09, the Soviet officer that finds General Vladimir (Adam Gregor) is armed with a Makarov PM.
Although it is unknown in-game, the concept art shows that Spectre M4 is the standard weapon of the Allied GIs when they are not deployed.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
The MP5A3 is the standard weapon of the Allied Navy SEALs and chrono commandos. The MP5 in-game appears to have a retractable stock, as well as the earlier handguards (not angled), thus it is an A3.
Despite the Navy SEALs and chrono commandos using the aforementioned MP5, their icons show them holding Uzis instead.
PPSh-41 is the standard weapon for the Soviet conscripts.
Thompson Submachine Gun
A Thompson submachine gun is seen in a concept art for the Sniper unit.
In the opening for Allied Mission 8, Tanya (Kari Wuhrer) is seen checking and loading a captured AKM rifle. For unknown reasons, the rifle lacks the dust cover.
An AK-type rifle appears as the main weapon of the Soviet hero unit Boris in Yuri's Revenge. Judging from the concept art, it has a receiver and a pistol grip seemingly inspired by a Type 1 AK-47, and a slightly longer barrel. It also has an RPK's stock, and a handguard shaped similarly to it. Due to extensive training and battlefield experience, Boris is very accurate and can dispatch most infantry with a single burst of fire from long range. This weapon also deals an appreciable amount of damage to vehicles.
Some of the Allied Soldiers that storm Romanov's office with Tanya have M16A2 rifles. This is also the standard weapon of the Allied Guardian GIs in Yuri’s Revenge when they are not deployed.
Accuracy International Arctic Warfare
Accuracy International Arctic Warfare is the standard sniper rifle of the British Sniper.
Two Allied Soldiers that are with Tanya are seen holding M60 machine guns. This is the weapon Allied GI's are armed with when deployed.
One of the Allied Soldiers accompanying Tanya is armed with an M249E2 SAW.
Yuri's Virus unit is armed with a "Virus Dart Gun" which is represented by an MG34 in concept art.
FGM-148 Javelin is the standard weapon of the Allied Guardian GIs in Yuri's Revenge when they are deployed.
Mk 2 Hand Grenade
In the briefing on Allied mission 10 General Carville (Barry Corbin) places what appears to be 2 grenades in his briefcase, and in the Allied ending of Yuri’s Revenge, another grenade can be seen sitting on his desk.
Model 1883 Gatling Gun
General Carville (Barry Corbin) points angrily with a miniature replica of an M1883 Gatling Gun in a campaign cutscene.
General Carville (Barry Corbin) has some pistols hanged on the wall of his office. The guns appear to be a Philadelphia Derringer and a Tap-Action Flintlock Pistol.
In Yuri’s Revenge, three action heroes parodying real life actors can be commanded in the mission "Hollywood and Vain", and are immune to mind control. While the weapons in their sprites aren't very detailed, their general shape, function, and use by each specific actor somewhat give away their identification:
- Arnold Schwarzenegger is parodied as "Arnnie Frankenfurter", though he was later renamed to "Hero" after a patch. His weapon is intended to pass for a Handheld M134 Minigun, as used in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, although it is represented by some sort of cannon in the in-game sprite.
- Clint Eastwood is parodied as "Flint Westwood", later renamed to "Cowboy". He is armed with a handgun, which he reveals to be a Smith & Wesson. His quote ".45 in the holster", combined with his cowboy attire, could imply that his gun is a Smith & Wesson Schofield revolver, which Eastwood used in the Western movie Unforgiven. That said, many of his other quotes are references to other of his movies (in which he used different S&W revolvers), most notably as Dirty Harry.
- Sylvester Stallone is parodied as "Sammy Stallion", later renamed to "Bodybuilder". His weapon is an M60E3, which Stallone used in Rambo: First Blood Part II.
