Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault
General Boxart
Release Date: November 4, 2004
Developer: EA Los Angeles
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Series: Medal of Honor
Platforms: Microsoft Windows
Genre: First-Person Shooter

Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault is a first-person shooter developed by EA Los Angeles and was released exclusively for Windows and, like the previous console game Rising Sun, from which some single-player missions were reused, deals with the Pacific Theater of World War II. It is based on the Havok physics engine and was released in November 2004. The game's plot is inspired by films like Gung Ho!, The Thin Red Line, and Pearl Harbor. The player takes control of young Private Tom Conlin and covers the battles of Pearl Harbor, Makin Raid, Guadalcanal, and the fighting on Tarawa.

The following weapons appear in the video game Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault:


Colt M1911A1

The M1911A1 is available to the player several times during the game. It is also seen as one of the two primary weapons of the squad's Corpsman. In-game, the M1911A1 is customized with bright wooden grips.

Nambu Type 14

Japanese officers and corpsmen carry Nambu Type 14 transition models as their sidearm and it's usable to the player periodically. It comes with an 8-round magazine but with a slower rate of fire and damage.

Smith & Wesson Model 1917

Marine Raiders in the early part of the war sometimes carry M1917 revolvers as their sidearm; the player character uses one during the first few missions as well.

Submachine Guns

M1928A1 Thompson

In Basic Training, the M1928A1 Thompson appears with a 50-round drum. In the Pearl Harbor mission, the Thompson has a 30-round stick even though 30-round magazines weren't available until 1942 when the M1/M1A1 Thompson came out, and later in the game, it comes with a 50-round drum magazine again.

Type 100

The 1944 model of the Type 100 submachine gun is available for the Japanese faction. So the first appearance of the Type 100/44 in the Makin Raid (1942) and later on Guadalcanal Island (1942/43) missions are anachronistically. Thereafter, it will be available in small numbers during the rest of the campaign.

Arisaka Type 38

The majority of Japanese troopers use Arisaka Type 38s as their primary weapon. Like the Garand, it is never seen without a bayonet. It fires 6.5×50mm rounds from a 5-round stripper clip. The rear sights automatically fold out when aiming the rifle.

Placing a 5-round stripper clip on top of the chamber, the clip is pushed in with the cartridges. This incorrect reload is done on all bolt action rifles in the game.
Note: The receiver has only one case rupture port and the receiver says "99 Type" in Japanese written horizontally. If this was modeled off of a Type 38 it should have two case rupture ports and should say "38 Type" in Japanese written vertically.

Arisaka Type 44

A few Japanese troops are seen with Type 44 Carbines in a few levels, most notably near the end of the Tarawa level. It's heavier than the Type 38 and is always equipped with an unfolded bayonet.

Note: The model has two case rupture ports like a Type 44 should, but they are too far apart and too far forward. And, just like the Type 38, the model of the receiver says "99 Type" horizontally in Japanese, not "44 Type" vertically as it should say.
Performing a melee attack with the spike-type bayonet.

Arisaka Type 97

The only Japanese rifle without a bayonet, the Type 97 is used in the Lunga River mission to take out snipers hidden in the trees. The Type 97 sniper rifle was basically an Arisaka Type 38 fitted with a side-mounted sniper scope. The difference between the Type 97 and the Type 38 is that the Type 97 has a very sluggish rate of fire, a lighter stock, and a side-mounted telescopic scope. One of the unique features of the Type 97 that also appears in-game is that the 6.5x50mmSR Arisaka the rifle fires has no muzzle flash due to the small cartridge and the length of the barrel, making it difficult to do counter-sniping activity with a sniper using this weapon.

Note: In-game, it is called a Type 97 sniper rifle, but the model shows that it's actually an Type 99 sniper rifle based on the Type 99 short rifle in 7.7x58mm, not the Type 38 long rifle in 6.5x50mmSR. This is indicated by the anti-aircraft fold-out wings on the rear sight and the full-length stock, both of which the Type 38 and Type 97 did not have.

Note: The anti-aircraft fold-out wings on the rear sight and the full-length stock. It is actually a Type 99 sniper rifle that the developers incorrectly called a Type 97.

Boys Mk. I

The Boys Mk I appears in one of the missions near Henderson Airfield and on Tarawa Island. Being an anti-tank rifle, it deals a tremendous amount of damage; as a trade-off, the rifle can't be used without being deployed on its bipod.

Springfield M1903

The M1903 Springfield is used in Basic Training without a scope. The scoped variant has a mounted Winchester A5 telescopic sight and is the primary weapon of Willy Gaines, the squad's sniper. Available in Tarawa, can be found in one of the LVTs.

Machine Guns

M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle

Gunnery Sergeant Frank Minoso uses an M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle in all the missions he appears with a screw-on compensator. It is also used by the player, and it is noted that Frank has scratched "Minoso" on the buttstock.

M1941 Johnson

The M1941 Johnson machine gun is usable only on the last stage of "Bloody Ridge," and only if you have the Director's Edition of the game (the Johnson is special content unique to that version of the game). It appears as a starting loadout in some of the missions.

A mobile Type 92 light machine gun (a Japanese version of the Lewis Gun) with a 47-round pan magazine appears as a mobile machine gun that can be carried around by machine gun crews and the player and placed on a large, even space on the ground. It has no reload animation.

M2 Flamethrower

A US Marine can very briefly be seen wielding an M2 Flamethrower during the Tarawa landing. It is also a cutout weapon that did not make it into the game as a playable device; except when using a cheat code.
