Red Orchestra 2: Rising Storm is a standalone expansion for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, and is set in the Pacific Theatre of Operations, with players being able to control U.S. Army or Marine infantrymen in the fight against the Imperial Japanese Army. Apart from new factions, weapons, and settings, it includes new features such as banzai charges, booby traps, and grenade launchers. Otherwise, it remains true to the gameplay of the main game.

The game received a direct sequel called Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, set in the Vietnam War.


The following weapons appear in the video game Red Orchestra 2: Rising Storm:


Allied Weapons

Sidearms

Colt M1911A1

The Colt M1911A1 is the sidearm for the U.S. faction. Each upgrade awards the weapon with 1 extra magazine and a new visual finish - a blued finish and brighter wood grips at level 25, and pearl grips and a nickel finish at level 50.

Rifles

M1903A1 Springfield

The M1903A1 Springfield is available in-game for U.S. forces, as an alternative to the M1 Garand. It can be upgraded at Level 25 with an M1 10-inch Bayonet and at Level 50 with an M1905 16-inch bayonet. The player can choose to perform either a full reload with the five-round stripper clip or a partial reload with loose rounds. On the Guadalcanal map, to reflect historical accuracy, only the M1903A1 and not the M1 Garand is available to the Marine faction.

M1903A4 Springfield

The M1903A4 Springfield is used by the U.S. sniper class. It is fitted with a Model 330 Weaver scope by default, which was in fact used on the Springfield alongside the more well-known M84. It can be fitted with an M73B1 2.5x scope at Level 25. Reaching Level 50 changes the rifle to a Marine M1903A1 with an 8x Unertl scope. Unlike the Type 97 and Type 99 sniper rifles, neither variant of the Springfield has backup iron sights.

M1 Garand

The M1 Garand is the main battle rifle for the U.S. faction. It can be upgraded with an M7 bayonet at Level 25. The second upgrade at Level 50 gives the player the option to fake the famous ping noise, to fool enemy players in addition to an M1905 16-inch bayonet.

M1 Carbine

The M1 Carbine can be used by specialized U.S. troops (Officers, Squad Leaders, and Engineers and can be unlocked for use by the Flamethrower role). It can be upgraded to fit a twin magazine pouch and an anachronistic M4 bayonet. The weapon in-game behaves very similar to a pistol, with little to no kickback and high accuracy but you forgo the effective damage over range.

Submachine Guns

M1928A1 Thompson

The M1928A1 Thompson is the submachine gun for U.S. troops in-game, with 20-round stick magazines. Early gameplay trailers showed it with simplified L-shaped sights, but as of the beta release, it features box-shaped sights. It can be upgraded to fire 30-round stick magazines and receives a Cutts compensator, and the final upgrade turns it into the M1928 Thompson with a 50-round drum magazine and vertical foregrip.

The M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle is used by the U.S. automatic rifleman class. It can be upgraded to mount a Thompson-esque vertical foregrip and a bipod for stabilizing the weapon. Like the real Browning Automatic Rifle, the weapon can fire in both Fast and slow fire modes.

Flamethrowers

The M2-2 Flamethrower is usable by the U.S. faction in-game. Like real-world flamethrowers, they quickly use up most of their fuel reserves with long bursts.

Axis Weapons

Sidearms

Nambu Type 14

The Nambu Type 14 transition model is available to the Imperial Japanese faction. Each upgrade awards the player with an additional Magazine at Levels 25 and 50 respectively. To reflect its real-world counterpart, the Type 14 is noticeably weaker than the 1911A1 and has a number of achievements tied to it.

Submachine Gun

Type 100

The Type 100 Submachine Gun is available to the Japanese faction. Extremely rare in reality, the in-game weapon serves as a balance to the Thompson submachine guns of the U.S. troops. The start variant is the late war 1944 model. At level 25 the weapon becomes the early Type 100/40 variant and receives a reduction in recoil and improved adjustable rear sighs. A Type 100 bayonet will be received at level 50.

Type 97 Hand Grenade

Japanese soldiers can be equipped with the more common Type 97 Hand Grenade, which can also be planted as a booby trap where it will detonate when a player steps on the grenade due to a percussion cap. The grenade itself has a rather long timer before it will explode. To reflect historical accuracy and for gameplay balance, Japanese soldiers who commit suicide with the Type 97 hand grenade will not cause their team to lose any reinforcement tickets if they successfully gain a kill in the ensuing "Kamikaze" blast.

Mounted Weapons

Nambu Type 92

The Type 92 heavy machine gun is used as a fixed machine gun by the Imperial Japanese Army. It counters the US M1917 by having a faster reload time however it only has a magazine size of 30 rounds and is extremely accurate.
