Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (2015)

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a first-person shooter developed by Machine Games and Bethesda Software, released in 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It is a direct prequel to 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order, and is set directly before the events of that game, unlike the more serious tone of the New order, the old blood is more dramatic with its theming including supernatural elements and zombies,

The following weapons appear in the video game Wolfenstein: The Old Blood:

Hand Guns

Luger P08

The Luger P08 returns from The New Order under the same name "Handgun 1946" and is the standard sidearm of the Nazi regime. It is primarily wielded by enemy officers. It retains the ability to be dual-wielded and suppressed. If the player finds all gold bars in each level, they unlock the Golden Pistol. When enabled, the standard pistol becomes golden.

The Kampfpistole Z pistol appears in-game with some modifications as simply the Kampfpistole. While it does tremendous damage, it is only single shot, slow to reload, and has a limited ammo supply where only a few dozen rounds appear in game. It is incorrectly shown as breech-loaded with unitary grenade rounds; while flare rounds worked this way, the grenade round modification for the Kampfpistole (the Sturmpistole) were more like rifle grenades and had to be inserted into the muzzle.

The main assault rifle used by both the Nazis and BJ is the "Assault Rifle 46T", which is similar in appearance to the real steel StG-44. It maintains many similarities from The New Order's Assault Rifle 1946, differing only by having a burst firing mode instead of a semi-automatic mode. As in The New Order, it also features a folding grip underneath the barrel, which only enemy soldiers will unfold (apparently to give it a profile more similar to the distinct one of the MP40). Upon being dropped, it folds back in.

The Bombenschuss (literally "bomb shot," but can also refer to an unstoppable shot, being the equivalent of "crack shot") is an entirely new rifle in the series. It has the overall appearance of a heavily modified Mauser 1918 T-Gewehr with some features of a Karabiner 98k and FG 42, such as the side loading magazine containing five rounds; it also has an AK-style trigger guard, complete with the mounting hardware for a paddle magazine release that it quite notably lacks. In addition, a scope can be attached to the rifle, which can be folded to the side so that either the scope or iron sights can be used for combat.

...and with the scope in place. As seen, the scope is held in place on the right of the receiver until the lever behind the magazine release is operated, and it swings into place. Note that oddly, the magazine is marked as 7.62mm to the left of the last viewing window: while .30-06 Springfield (7.62x63mm) was around at the time, it is rather curious for a German rifle to use it over 7.92mm Mauser.
Here we see the bolt being worked to extract a spent round from the rifle. Note the three holes at the back of the magazine, through which rounds in the mag are visible; while not shown in this image (due to the extended magazine upgrade, which as typical does not physically change the magazine model), as the weapon is fired the rounds inside the mag will gradually be cycled out of the magazine and through the chamber, leaving all three holes visibly empty once there are only two rounds remaining in the magazine.

Double Barrel Shotgun

The Double Barrel Shotgun returns from The New Order, and sees much more use, especially in the crypt. The full-length model is usable in the prologues only combat section, and much later on in Wulfburg, when BJ saws down the barrels of a second shotgun in a shed before dealing with the shamblers, which is a faint reference to the Evil Dead series. (He doesn't say "Groovy" this time, though.)

Sawed-off Shotgun

A Sawed-off shotgun is gained after BJ Sawed down Kessler's double-barrel shotgun after its barrel is bent in Wulfburg, unlike its longer barreled variant it suffers from an even shorter range but deals heavy damage to shamblers.

BJ reloads the shotgun with new shells. The shotgun uses yellow shells, which are more common in the crypt, but are not shared by the Schockhammer.


The Shockhammer appears as a semi-automatic shotgun and is most likely the precursor to the automatic shotgun seen in Wolfenstein: The New Order. It is the main weapon for heavy troopers, though Nazis would not use combat shotguns in real life. Interestingly, the Shockhammer does not use the same shells that are used by the double-barreled/sawed-off Shotgun, hinting at different gauges or possibly an entirely different round (the ammo is even called 'slugs'). Shells are stored in a 10-round detachable drum magazine, which can be upgraded to hold 16. The Shockhammer can also be dual-wielded, however this greatly increases the reloading time.

Machine guns

Heavy Machine Gun (MG46)

Returning from Wolfenstein: The New Order, the MG46 is a bulkier MG42 with a minigun assembly made of four barrels with MG42 barrel shrouds and conical flash suppressors. It feeds from a 250-round drum magazine, and has a rotating four-barrel system with a very high rate of fire. It appears to be the main weapon of choice for the super soldiers, and can be obtained right away after the prologue chapter. The MG46 is also mounted on boats and turrets in later levels; the boss fight with Rudi Jager has him don a power suit fitted with 2 MG46's.
