1) Intro/Overview

Welcome to my Goldeneye equipment FAQ.  This is my first time writing an FAQ.  I have been looking all over the internet for a totally complete, -thorough- explanation of -all- of Bond's equipment.  Yes, -equipment-, not just weapons.  

The game itself is awesome, even though the storyline is stretched a little from the movie.  The weapons are great, the sound and graphics are smooth.  I would give this game a 10.  Now on to the FAQ.

2) Update History

Version 1.0
I added everything there is on this FAQ.

3) Weapon List

Hunting Knife - A good weapon, takes a few hits to kill though.  Can only be used in close range.  Available with the All Guns cheat only.

Throwing Knife - Use these knives in hand to hand combat.  They should also be used in relatively quiet,
interior areas that tend to have alarm buttons or soldiers every five feet.  Some say the throwing knife is better than a
KF7 Soviet - an archaic weapon that comes in handy in a pinch.  Found in:  Bunker 2.

PP7 Special Issue - Standard pistol that holds six rounds at a time.  This is Bondís weapon of choice, starts
almost every level with one.  Also available with a silencer.  Found in:  Archives, Bunker 1.

*Silenced PP7* - Definitely worth mentioning.  A great weapon for environments where there are a lot of
enemies and silence is necessary.  Bond starts missions frequently with this gun.  Found in:  Bunker 2.

DD44 Dostovei - A sleek, silver, Russian-made .44 magnum that packs a  real punch.  Fewer shots are
needed to do the job with this super powerful weapon.  Getting hold of two gives a real feeling of power. 
Found in:  Dam, Bunker 1, Bunker 2, Archives, Train.

Klobb - A machine gun that shoots quick, multiple bullets.  Not so effective against a crowd of enemies,
unless you have two.  Holds 20 shots per clip, which is one good point of this gun.  Found in:  Surface 1,
Surface 2, Bunker 1, Bunker 2, Archives.

KF7 Soviet - Russian made automatic rifle.  Standard issue to Russian soldiers.  This weapon has a few
good points, like its scope and power, but itís really loud.  You'll have no trouble getting your hands on one.  Found in:  Almost every level.

ZMG 9mm - Possibly the coolest machine gun youíll find, and certainly the most powerful.  Better than the
Klobb and the D5K because it has bigger rounds and can shoot faster with more force.  Hand held.  Holds
32 bullets per clip.  You can start with one in the Caverns level.  The ZMG will take out a small army when
used efficiently.  Found in:  Train, Cradle. 

D5K Deutsche - A brilliant automatic machine gun.  Holds 30 shots per clip.  Great for large groups, as
displayed in the Depot and Frigate levels.  Doesn't shoot too quick, though. With the silencer attached, this gun could very well be the best silenced weapon in the game.  Found in:  Frigate, Train, Depot. 

Phantom - A good, effective gun, similar in sound to the KF7, very loud, but can carry a lot of bullets in one
clip.  Found in:  Frigate.

US AR33 Assault Rifle - A fairly noisy automatic, but it's very  effective.  Has a good scope.  When there's the opportunity to get two, make sure you do. 
Found in:  Jungle, Caverns, Cradle.

RC-P90 - Emits more bullets per round than any other gun, and has a near bottomless magazine.  Very, very
powerful - possibly the best sub-machine gun in the game.
Found in:  Train, Jungle, Caverns.

Automatic Shotgun - This awesome shotgun blasts back your opponents with serious muscle.  Holds five
shots at a time.  Found in:  Statue.

Sniper Rifle - A fine specimen of a rifle with an extraordinary long sight range.  Furthermore, itís silenced. 
Use to pick off opponents from far away.  Perfect for some levels, but not many.  Shoots only one bullet at a
time, so itís not recommended for heavy combat.  Found in:  Dam, Surface 1.

Cougar Magnum - This weapon is very powerful, can kill enemies in one shot.  Although, it has very high
recoil and is slow loading.  Comparable to the DD44.  Found in:  only available with completion of game on
easy setting.

Golden Gun - Only available in one level, the Golden Gun kills opponents with one shot.  Although, there is
only one bullet per clip.  Found in:  Egyptian Temple.

Silver PP7 - Sort of a cross between a Magnum and a PP7.  Has the same sound and feel of a PP7, though. 
Usually kills in one-two shots; automatically aims for the head.    Found in:  only available with time cheat.

Gold PP7 - Sort of a cross between the Golden Gun and a PP7.  Kills in one shot.  Found in:  only available
with time cheat.

Moonraker Laser - Unlimited ammo.  Sometimes kills in one shot.  Not very effective by itself - pick up a second
to make it worthwhile.  Found in:  Aztec Complex.

Grenade Launcher - Better than throwing grenades, the Grenade Launcher is perfect for cleaning out areas
you canít see, but in which you know somebody is hiding.  Itís range is about 30 feet.  Uses standard
grenades.  Found in:  Surface 1, Jungle.

Rocket Launcher - Great for taking out soldiers or automatic guns from a distance.  Has very long range. 
Totally devestating to human targets.  Keep your distance from the explosion.  Found in:  Depot.

Grenades - Timed hand bomb that explodes into hundreds of burning metal pieces.  Usually causes more
injury than death, although potentially lethal.  Use these when you need to clear out an area of enemies or
machinery.  Can most often be obtained from fallen enemy soldiers.  Found in:  Jungle, Cradle, plus many

Timed Mines - Portable explosive that detonates between five and ten seconds after planted.  Found in:  Surface 2.

Proximity Mine - Scary.  Simply scary.  Proximity mines test the true cunning (and memory) of the
professional spy.  Lay one down and watch an enemy walk near it.  The soldier is blown sky high!  The mine is set off by nearby movement. 
Just donít place one and forget where you put it down.  Found in:  Depot, Caverns.

Remote Mine - Same power as the other types of mine, but can be detonated manually by using the watch
detonator.  Found in: Facility, Jungle, Control.

Taser - Mostly just a novelty item, because itís difficult to aim, doesnít do much damage, and isnít very
effective against more than one enemy at a time.  Found in:  only available with certain cheat.

Tank - Equivalent to the rocket launcher, the tank has incredible range and stopping power.  Can be used
without a tank itself with the all guns cheat.  Found in:  Runway, Streets.

7) Weapon Tricks

Double mixed weapons - here is a cheat that is all over the Ďnet.  You probably know it by now, but here it is anyway---Obtain two sets of paired weapons that appear next to each other inyour weapon list and some ammunition for each gun. (For example, inthe Military Archives level, obtain two Dostoveis and two Klobbs).Then, cycle through the weapons until two of the second set of weaponsare ready. Now, quickly press the following set of buttons: Hold Abutton, then before the weapons cycle forward, press Z(2).  Release A,then press A once Press Z to fire two or three times while the weaponsare cycling. If done correctly, firing the weapon will lock one of the weapons during the cycle, allowing a mixed set.
