The following weapons appear in the video game IGI 2: Covert Strike:


Colt Anaconda

The Colt Anaconda is only available in multiplayer. It is referred to as "Magnum", which is contradicted by the buying menu stating that it is chambered in .45 Long Colt.

Reloading; the casings still have bullets in them. Note also how the weapon model lacks the ejector rod required to remove the rounds.
Melee attack.
In third person, an ejector rod is appropriately present.

Desert Eagle Mark XIX

The Desert Eagle Mark XIX appears in the game, referred to as "D-Eagle", and used by Zaleb Said and his guards in the Libyan missions. It is one of the most powerful handguns in the game.

Desert Eagle Mark XIX - .50 AE

Glock 17

The Glock 17 is the starting pistol in the Russian levels and comes with a suppressor; it is referred to as the "G-17 SD". It provides accurate but weak firepower.

Heckler & Koch Mk 23 Mod 0

The Heckler & Koch Mk 23 Mod 0 is referred in-game to as the "Socom" and comes with a suppressor and a usable LAM unit. It provides suppressed but effective shots; it is used by David in the Libyan mission, and Anya holds one in the last cutscene of the game. In multiplayer, it is erroneously stated to be chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum.

The Heckler & Koch Mk 23 Mod 0 being held. The hammer is never in cocked position, even though after firing the first shot it should be.
Reloading gives a good view of the left side. The presence of an extractor on this side, combined with the lack of a slide-release or decocking lever, would indicate that the whole weapon has been mirrored...
...except getting a look at the right side, as when racking the slide after a reload, shows that it still looks like it should, meaning the texture artists prioritized the side of the gun we're not supposed to get a good look at.

Makarov PM

The Makarov PM is used by Russian guards, and also by Russian and Chinese scientists as a backup weapon. Despite firing the 9x18mm round, it is attributed with a higher damage than the Glock 17. Wu Xing uses a Makarov PM (presumably standing in for the Type 59 Chinese copy) in the intro cuscene of the "Secret Weapons Lab" mission, where it uses the Desert Eagle's firing sound, likely due to the more dramatic sound of the Desert Eagle.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

The player starts the game with the Heckler & Koch MP5A3. It incorrectly offers a 3-round burst option, which would be the case for other variants like the MP5A5.

Heckler & Koch SMG II

The Heckler & Koch SMG II, a canceled MP5 program, is available in the game with its integrated suppressor. It is David Jones' secondary weapon in the missions set in China.

The IMI Uzi is used by Libyan guards. Dual-wielded Uzis can only be found in multiplayer.

IMI Uzi with stock removed - 9x19mm
Like in the first game, the Uzi is incorrectly shown as a closed bolt weapon, and the first-person view depicts the player character as using it one-handed...
...while in third-person view, it is seen used with two hands. The same applies to the MAC-10.
Cocking the Uzi.
Melee attack.

Ingram MAC-10

The Ingram MAC-10 is used by Russian guards. In multiplayer, the buying menu states that it is chambered in .45 ACP, which contradicts the 32-round magazine used in-game.

Ingram MAC-10 - .45 ACP

Reloading. The ejection port is erroneously on the left side, and shows that the weapon is incorrectly treated as a closed bolt weapon.

Type 64

The integrally suppressed Type 64 SMG is used by Chinese special forces.

Assault Rifles

Colt M16A2

The Colt M16A2 is a starting weapon in the Russian missions, equipped with an M203 grenade launcher. It is used by the IGI special forces in the last cutscene of the game. It incorrectly fires in fully-automatic mode (like an M16A3) instead of three-round burst.

The M16A2 in third person. The longer barrel and adjustable rear sight can be easily seen, showing that it's a genuine M16A2 rather than an XM177 with a fixed stock to sort-of pass as one.

Heckler & Koch G11 K2

The Heckler & Koch G11 K2 is used by General Wu Xing in the "Secret Weapons Lab" mission, and is available to the player afterwards. It only fires in fast 3-round bursts, and it offers a scoped view.

Heckler & Koch G36E

The Heckler & Koch G36E is only used by David in the Libyan missions. It incorrectly offers a 3-round burst option; the optional burst setting on real G36 variants is 2-round burst, nevermind the fact that the in-game weapon is modeled with an S-E-F trigger group, which lacks the burst function.

Heckler & Koch G36E - 5.56x45mm

Type 56-1

The Type 56-1 appears; like the Zastava M70B1 from the first game, it is wrongly referred to as an AK-47. It is used by Russian and Chinese guards and Libyan special forces. In multiplayer, it is incorrectly listed as being chambered in 5.45x39mm.

Type 56-1 - 7.62x39mm

Benelli M4 Super 90

The Benelli M4 Super 90 appears under the US nomenclature "M1014" (even though US forces don't even appear in the game), and is used by Libyan and Chinese special forces.

Pancor Jackhammer

The Pancor Jackhammer returns from the previous game, its appearance again being incorrect since the real Jackhammer never entered production. It can be found in the Libyan missions, and is also used by Priboi and Zaleb. Once again it has an erroneous cylinder capacity of 12 rounds instead of 10.

Sniper Rifles

Barrett M82A1

The Barrett M82A1 is used by Chinese special forces. A version with a thermal vision scope is also available as the "M82A1-T" in "The Ancient Temple" mission.

Heckler & Koch PSG-1

Hybrid SVD Dragunov / PSL

Like in the first game, the "SVD Dragunov" (as referred to in the text when picking up the weapon) is a hybrid of the SVD Dragunov and the Romanian PSL Sniper Rifle.

The Browning M2HB is available mounted on various platforms.

Sentry guns also consist of M2HBs, as opposed to the rotary guns used in the first game.

FN Minimi

The FN Minimi is used by Chinese guards, and can also be found in Libyan missions. Like in the previous game, it is simply reloaded by changing the belt box without actually inserting the belt into the feed tray.

The M203 grenade launcher is attached to the M16A2. Contrary to most the rest of the returning weapons from the first Project IGI, in this game the M203 is reanimated to properly depict it as a single-shot, break-open weapon that must be reloaded after every shot, rather than some sort of shotgun pump attachment that launches grenades so long as the user has any on their person.

LAW 80

The LAW 80 is only available in multiplayer.

The RPG-7 is available in the game with a PGO-7 scope. It is first seen in the mission "Ambush", where David Jones takes one from a Russian convoy to destroy an APC. The RPG is also used by Libyan special forces and Chinese guards.

Stun Grenade

Stun grenades (referred to as Flashbangs in-game) are used by Russian, Libyan and Chinese special forces in singleplayer, but are only available to the player in multiplayer.
