Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is a critically acclaimed 2005 stealth action video game, the third in the Splinter Cell series. It was released in 2005 for the PC, Xbox, PlayStation 2, and GameCube.
Players once again control Sam Fisher (voiced by Michael Ironside), an elite agent operating for the National Security Agency's "Third Echelon" covert ops branch. Set in 2007, Sam is tasked with preventing a war between China, North Korea, South Korea, and Japan as tensions in Asia run to an all-time high. He learns that unknown parties are manipulating events behind the scenes with the aid of a digital superweapon and that the true enemies may be closer than he thinks.
The following weapons appear in the video game Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory:
Referred to as the "SC Pistol", the FN Five-seveN is Sam's standard issue sidearm. It is said to beintegrally silenced in-game and appears to be the original model. It is also fitted with an "OCP device", which temporarily disrupts electrical equipment, like cameras and lights.
The Beretta 92FS is used by The People's Voice revolutionaries and Panamanian guards.
Heckler & Koch Mark 23
The Heckler & Koch Mark 23 is used by New York Army National Guard soldiers, as well as JGSDF soldiers. In real-life, the US military used the Beretta M9 as their standard sidearm when this game was made, and the JGSDF uses the Minebea P9 (a Japanese license-produced SIG-Sauer P220) as their standard sidearm, while the Mark 23 was hardly used by anyone at all because most found the pistol too large and ungainly, especially with its suppressor and LAM attached.
Desert Eagle Mark XIX
The Desert Eagle Mark XIX is used by Doug Shetland at the end of the bathhouse level and by General Jung, who is only seen in co-op mode. It clearly features the scope mount and taller cocking serrations of the Mark XIX model.
The Yarygin PYa can be seen in the hands of North Korean soldiers. While not completely unreasonable in the context of the game's setting, in reality, a Makarov PM or Tokarev TT-33 would have been more appropriate. This is notably one of the earliest appearances of this pistol in popular culture, and the pistol had been released only two years before the game's release.
Heckler & Koch MP7A1
The MP7A1 is used by the Displace International mercenaries and some I-SDF soldiers as their standard "handgun".
Heckler & Koch UMP9
The UMP9 is used by some Displace International mercenaries. They are usually equipped with C-More Systems red dot sights.
FN F2000 Tactical
Sam's standard issue rifle, the FN F2000 Tactical returns from previous games as the "SC-20K". It can be fitted with either a 40mm launcher, a shotgun, a "20mm Sniper attachment", or an ordinary handguard. Sights are usually a C-More red dot sight, changing to a standard F2000 sight with the "sniper attachment". Like the Five-seveN, it is said to be integrally suppressed. Unlike the real weapon, the one in-game one has an adjustable stock, as well as a two-stage trigger.
The AICW is used by People's Voice revolutionaries; Sam mentions how strange it is they have access to them, especially considering the weapon did not see any large-scale production. The AICW is basically a Steyr AUG with an integrated, three-shot grenade launcher developed by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation, Metal Storm, and Tenix Defence Systems. The in-game version has a longer grenade tube and barrel.
Norinco Type 56
The Norinco Type 56 is used by People's Voice revolutionaries and North Korean soldiers.
STK SAR 21
The STK SAR 21 is used by I-SDF troops.
Heckler & Koch G36C
The Heckler & Koch G36C is the standard rifle of the Displace International mercenaries, usually equipped with a C-More Systems red dot sight.
Heckler & Koch G36KV
The Heckler & Koch G36KV is seen in the hands of multiple Displace International mercenaries and one of Hugo's bodyguards.
Heckler & Koch XM8
The Heckler & Koch XM8 is used by South Korean soldiers and some New York Army National Guard (ARNG) soldiers. In real-life, South Korea uses the Daewoo K2, and the US Army and ARNG use the M4 carbine.
Howa Type 89F
The Howa Type 89F is used by JGSDF soldiers standing guard at the Kokubo Sosho I-SDF headquarters.
The Ruger AC556 is found in the hands of Panamanian guards at the bank.
Heckler & Koch XM29 OICW
The Heckler & Koch XM29 OICW is used by a few New York Army National Guard soldiers, and seen next to the corpses of a few South Korean soldiers.
A FIM-92A is used by a North Korean soldier to take down a US Navy EA-6B Prowler in the cutscene preceding the second half of the Seoul level. It would make more sense for a North Korean soldier to be using a Soviet-made AA launcher, such as a Strela or Igla, unless the Stinger was captured from South Korean or US forces in the field.
An unidentified shotgun can be mounted under Sam's F2000.
It appears to be a modified Franchi SPAS-12 with the grip and stock removed, as the barrel and foreend bears a strong resemblance to the SPAS-12.
The barrel of an M60E3 can be seen sticking out of a box of weapons in the first mission.
The RPD can be seen used by some North Korean special forces soldiers during the North Korean invasion of Seoul.
GE M134 Minigun
The GE M134 Minigun is seen mounted in the turret of the fictional North Korean IFVs and on helicopters.
A Phalanx CIWS is seen as part of the armament of the USS Clarence E. Walsh (CG-80).
The XM307 ACSW is used as part of Displace International's automated sentry guns. The in-game weapon seems to have a higher rate of fire than the real one, and does less damage than you would expect from a .50 BMG weapon, killing the player no faster than any other automatic weapon in the game.
M67 hand grenade
The game's resident frag grenade is the M67 hand grenade.
