"I'm ready, man. Check it out! I am the ultimate badass! State of the badass art! You do not want to fuck with me. Check it out! Hey, Ripley, don't worry. Me and my squad of ultimate badasses will protect you! Check it out. Independently targeting particle-beam phalanx. WHAP! Fry half a city with this puppy. We got tactical smart missiles, phase plasma pulse rifles, RPGs. We got sonic, electronic ball-breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharp sticks..."- Private Hudson, Aliens

The Colonial Marines are equipped with the best equipment around, well with what a couple thousand credits can buy, at least. They have a load-out of a lot of equipment.

Standard Marine Weapons

The marines get the choice of five weapons. They range from pistol to a heavy M41A. The marines get equipped with guns for any situation they encounter, no matter what the threat will be.When using any weapon it is best to aim for the chest this is because in case you accidentally hit a marine with a stray bullet they will take less damage,On a side note aiming for the head only increases damage against ravagers so unless you are 1v1ing a ravager aim at the chest always because aiming anywhere else results in an accuracy penalty (that stacks with other ones). Armor Piercing ammo is unique in that it does moderately less damage overall in exchange for increased armor piercing. It is only effective against armored foes, using it against unarmored foes will result in a large drop in damage instead. It also has a very high chance to break bones and rupture internal organs, which is ineffective against xenos but extremely deadly against humans.

M4A3 Pistol

M4a3.png
M4A3 Service Pistol
Description: This is one of two pistols that the marines have a choice to take. It is a reliable fall back weapon and it uses 9mm pistol ammo with the magazine holding 12 bullets. A very small item, it can fit in almost any slot possible. Armor piercing, Incendiary, squash head, and extended magazines are available for use as well.


M44 Revolver

44magnum.png
M44 Combat Revolver
Description: This revolver is the standard side arm for military officers but is also available as a alternative sidearm for marines. Unlike the M4A3 the Revolver is heavier and cannot fit inside pockets or small containers, but it deals significantly more damage per round. It uses .44 rounds and holds 7 bullets. Marksman ammunition has better armor penetration at the cost of overall power.


M39 SMG

M39.png
M39 Submachine Gun
Description: This is the standard sub-machine. A mediocre firearm that serves usefully for support marines, such as medics, engineers or specialists with heavy weapons, as well as being used in conjunction with a riot shield. It uses 9mm special rounds, and holds 48 bullets. This weapon can also load armor piercing, extended, and incendiary ammunition. Has Burstfire capabilities

This weapon will also display your ammo count in your text screen, thanks to the inbuilt ammo indicator.


M41A Pulse Rifle

M41a.png
M41A Mk2 Pulse Rifle
Description: This is the standard issue pulse rifle used by many military forces around the universe. A reliable, robust and overall effective standard issue longarm. The M41A must be held in two hands to fire. It uses 10mm special rounds and holds 40 rounds. Unlike the M41A Mk1 which holds 99 rounds the Mk2 only holds 40 rounds but offers the user greater capabilities to customise their weapon with attachments.

There are also extended magazines available. Has Burstfire capabilities It is pre-equipped with a 2 shot grenade launcher which can't be reloaded once all shots are used.

This weapon will also display your ammo count in your text screen, thanks to the inbuilt ammo indicator.


M41A Magazine

M41amag.png M41A Magazine -- Standard Mag. Forty (40) 10mm rounds.

M41A Armour Piercing Magazine

M41amag.png M41A AP Mag -- Armour Piercing Mag. Forty (40) 10mm AP rounds. Has better armor penetration, but lower overall damage.

M37 Shotgun

Shotgun.png
M37A2 Pump Shotgun
Description: Shotgun utilised by USMC Marines, a powerful in close quarters combat that is capable of killing even the strongest of hostile targets, this is in addition to its good chance to outright stun enemies if you fire at them at very close range. However it is difficult to use as the shotgun has to be cocked after ever time its fired, as well as ammo management being difficult.



It uses shotgun slugs or buckshot shells and holds 8 rounds. You can take out a handful (5) shell into your hand and use these to rapidly reload your shotgun. Its highly recommended you set up a macro to use your space key to pump your shotgun.


Slug Rounds

Slugbox.png Slug Rounds -- Single Slug Projectile. Effective in ranged combat. Armor piercing. Lesser damage.

Buckshot Rounds

Buckbox.png Buckshot Rounds -- Multiple Projectiles. Powerful in close range. Massive damage, Rapid damage fall-off at range. 4 meter range, fires in a 15 degree radius.

Incendiary Slug Rounds

Incinbox.png Incendiary Slug Rounds -- Single Slug Projectile. Effective in Ranged Combat. Deals burn damage, very effective on Xenomorphs. Rare, found in Sulaco Armoury & some Planet bound shotguns.

M11 Combat Bayonet

Knife.png
M11 Combat Bayonet
Description: A sharp cutting tool that can be hidden in your marine combat boots. Very useful for cutting through materials, but it should only to be used as a last resort against enemies. In case of being devoured it can be used to cut your way out of an Alien. Applying cable coil to its grip allows the knife to be used as a regular Bayonet Attachment.


Specialist Marine Weapons

These marine weapons are weapons, or weapon systems, that only the Specialist has access to.

M42A Scoped Rifle

M42A Scoped rifle.png
M42A Scoped Rifle
Description: Specialist only. A high power sniper rifle, this weapon deals a considerable amount of damage per bullet and is capable of attacking and hitting targets at extreme ranges. It comes equipped with a high power scope allowing the user a wide range of vision. This weapon is limited to ten rounds per magazine, a very obvious and loud firing noise and that it is ineffective in close range combat as bullets fired too close to the user will miss.


M92 Grenade Launcher

GrenadeLauncher.png
M92 Grenade Launcher
Description: Specialist only. A midpoint between a shotgun and the rocket launcher, the grenade launcher is a two-handed weapon that can hold and fire up to five grenades of any variety. This weapon also has a inbuilt auto-lock system preventing the fired grenades from detonating if they hit a target that is too close to the weapon handler.


SADAR

SADAR.png
M83A2 Shoulder-Launched Active-Homing Disposable Anti-Tank Rocket
Description: Specialist only. A reloadable, single shot, rocket launcher. This weapon carries the most powerful and deadliest ordnance available to marine infantry in the form of either High Explosive, Armor Piercing, or White Phosphorus rockets. Where HE rockets are effective against tight groups of hostile targets, the AP rockets deal little actual splash damage but they deal immense damage to a single target. Unlike the grenade launcher SADAR ammo is more scarce, as well as the SADAR being more unwieldy to employ. Its not actually homing and its reusable. Start's pre-loaded with a HE rocket. It cannot be fired on the Sulaco.
SADAR Ammunition

SADAR HE.png High Explosive (HE) -- Deals damage and stuns in a 4 meter wide area. Deals little additional damage on direct hit with a target. Ineffective against heavily armored targets.

SADAR AP.png Anti-Armor (AA or AP) -- Deals massive damage to any target hit directly by rocket. Deals very little to no splash damage. Rocket MUST hit a target directly to do damage. Very effective against heavily armored targets.

SADAR PHS.png Phosphorous [PHS] -- Generates very high heat levels on target. High Heat will generally kill any Alien hit directly, as well as deal heat damage to anyone nearby for a extended period, Human or otherwise. Effective against heavily armored targets.

M56 Smartgun

SmartGun.png
M56 Smartgun
Description: Specialist only. The most complicated weapon available to a marine. Sadly the Smartgun lacks any auto-tracking capabilities. However it has a impressive 250 round ammo pool to draw from, a inbuilt infrared sensor allowing great visibility in low-light conditions, it deals a good amount of damage per bullet with a high rate of fire, an automatic reloading system and the coup de grace being that due to the gun's toggle-able complex targeting algorithms each bullet will not hit any fellow marine. This allows a smartgun operator to fire freely through a group of allied marines without fear of hitting any of them. The Smartgun requires a special harness to even lift and will automatically retract to the harness suit storage when the user is knocked down.


Restricted Marine Weapons

These marine weapons are uncommon and usually are only used by specialists, high ranking marine officers or select personal.

M4A3 Commander Pistol

M4a3.png
M4A3 Commander Pistol
Description: Unique varient of the M4A3 issued and only used by the Commander. Has a unique sprite but is otherwise identical to a M4A3. It starts loaded with hollow-point rounds and an AP magazine can be found in the Commander's quarters.


88 Mod 4

88m4.png
88 Mod 4
Description: A powerful sidearm issued mainly to Weyland Yutani response teams, but also issued to the USCM in small numbers, based on the original vp70 more than a century ago. Fires 9mm armor piercing rounds and is capable of 3-round burst. Typically used by Sniper Specialists employing the usage of the Recon kit, or the Executive Officer for self defence.


Tactical Shotgun

Wytacshotgun.png
MK221 Tactical Shotgun
Description: A unique Weyland-Yutani semi-automatic shotgun with a rapid fire rate and have a attached Underslung Grenade Launcher underneath of it.
Can be found in the Military Police armoury, Command Gun cabinet, and Sulaco's Armoury.


M240 Incinerator Unit

Flamethrower.png
M240 Incinerator Unit
Description: Capable of shooting flames by lighting welding fuel or the custom napalm manufacturers mix to fuel it, this weapon is capable of dealing massive damage to Xenos and Marines alike who stand in its fires. Unlike bullets, this weapon doesn't stop on the first mob hit, it can pass through metal grilles and girders, and can light narrow hallways ablaze, potentially damaging multiple enemies. Beware friendly fire and make sure you have a Medic equipped with Kelotane or Dermaline if you decide to go this route! Fire protection is definitely something to consider as it lessens the effects of the burning liquid but it'll still hurt. The longer the enemy stands in the flames, the more they are damaged and have a chance of being set alight. Furthermore, the flamer has a high chance to set both humans and aliens on fire, forcing them to roll to put themselves out. Be careful using this weapon around friendlies, lest you doom them to a fiery grave.
In the right hands, however, this is a powerful weapon. The tank can be refueled only with welder fuel after you use up all of the napalm mix which came straight from the manufacturing line.
Currently, two flamers can be found in a Squad Leader's personal vendor. More flamers can be ordered from cargo and the only attachments it takes are a mag harness and a rail flashlight.


M41AE2 Heavy Pulse Rifle

M41ae2.png
M41AE2 Heavy Pulse Rifle
Description: Currently undergoing field testing, the M41AE2 is similar to its smaller M41A cousin. Armed with 100-round box magazines, the M41AE2 fires the same 10x24mm caseless ammunition as its relatives, albiet at a slower rate of fire, meaning it is also capable of loading their (smaller) magazines in a pinch.
Currently a single rifle can be found in the Sulaco's secure armoury for emergencies. More can be ordered from Cargo via the WY Weapons Crate.


M4RA Battle Rifle

M4RA.png
M4RA Battle Rifle

Weapon Attachments

Marines can acquire attachments for weapons. Most attachments must be acquired via the Requisitions Officer located on the east side of the Sulaco. Most ROs usually only give one or two attachments to most marines, though some may grant more to squad leaders, medics, engineers, or specialists. Being polite to the Requisitions staff might get you extra stuff. Say please and thank you.

Most guns have three attachment locations: the rail, under barrel and the muzzle. Each location allows only one attachment at a time. Most attachments offer an advantage and some disadvantage.

The statistics for attachments are subject to change and will most likely change often. Until they do change, this page will be up to date on the statistics on each attachment.
