I hope you find this guide useful and refer back to it when needed. Section 1.2: Legal Info All Information here comes from in-game experience with these weapons. Any comments by me on these weapons is purely my opinion. Do not copy or take information from this guide without directly crediting me as the source. Section 2.1: Mk.II Frag Grenade Often called the "Pineapple Grenade", the Mk.2 was used by the allies all throughout WW1 & WW2 in every Theater of Operations. Also served in Korea and Vietnam before being replaced with the modern "Baseball" grenade. Carried by allies throughout the game. Up to 14 can be carried by the player. Hold down the R2 button to cook any kind of handheld grenade. Section 2.2: Stick Grenade Used by Germans in both World Wars, the Stick Grenade could be thrown like a fetching stick, hence the name. Carried by the player and enemies all throughout the game. Up to 14 can be carried. Hold down the R2 button to cook any kind of handheld grenade. Section 2.3 Gammon Grenade Not much is known about this weapon outside of MOH Airborne, but it was actually used in WW2 against german tanks. Also called the Gammon Bomb. However, I would appreciate any additional historical info you can give me. Used solely by the player as an Anti-Tank/Demolition grenade. Can easily clear a medium-sized room or area. Throw the Gammon Grenade under a moving Tiger Tank to immobilize it. Hold down the R2 button to cook any kind of handheld grenade. *Note: Press the X button, when close enough, to kick grenades away. Works on all grenade types. Section 3.1: Composition B Plastic Explosives Used for structural demolition in WW2. There were two ways of detonation, one of which was the use of a "Hellbox" wire-connected detonator, the other method was the use of a timed fuse. Used by the player and a few allies during cutscenes. When you see a red box on an object/structure, press the X button to place a charge there. Once a charge is placed, SPRINT AWAY!!!!! Section 3.2: Grenade Launchers Equipped on many types of rifles in WW2, Grenade launchers were essentially light mortars. Commonly used to take out hard-to-reach enemies and clear rooms from a distance. Used solely by the player on the M1, Springfield, Kar 98, and G43. Tricky to use, as the grenade might not even fly over your cover object/structure. Use only when your fire path is unblocked. Section 3.3: Fuel Barrels Ah, ye olde Fuel Barrel. If you played MOH Frontline, you'll know what to do here. Shoot these to clear out multiple enemies. Note that these barrels also kill any friendlies near them. Section 4.1: Panzershreck The German equivelant of the Bazooka. Could easily take out a Sherman tank if shot in the right spot. Could also be used to make wall clearings. Used by the Player and Panzergrenadiers in certain levels. Can be used to take out large clusters of troops, and of course, Tiger Tanks. !!!!CAUTION!!!! DO NOT USE AT CLOSE RANGE, OR WHEN YOUR FIRE PATH IS NOT CLEAR. Section 4.2 M18 Recoilless Rifle Not much is known about this weapon outside MOH Airborne. I would greatly appreciate any additional historical info you can send me. Used solely by the player in Operation Neptue. Used in the same fashion as the Panzershreck. !!!!CAUTION!!!! DO NOT USE AT CLOSE RANGE, OR WHEN YOUR FIRE PATH IS NOT CLEAR.
