The Shoulder Fired Multi Purpose Assault Weapon is a missile launcher used widely through the Syphon Filter series.

Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain

The SMAW can first be seen and used in Belarus 2, where a CDP thug brings down Alima's helicopter. It is ineffective against the tank, and the player must use anti-armour grenades, although Stone's version somehow works.

This weapon was also used in Tokyo to shoot Lian and Gina down, but the latter brought the copter under control quickly enough to land safely.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

The weapon was used by ZP troops against Gabe Logan, and a modified version that fires anti-tank rounds was required to destroy the tank which Zivmovic hijacked.

It was also used by Yemeni insurgents to attack Stone when the latter assassinated al-Hassan.

Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow

The SMAW first appears during the attack on the St. Helens, when a Somali pirate fires at Alima, killing her. Gabe Logan resolves to sink the boats that raid the US Naval supply ship to send any stolen launchers to the depths of the Indian Ocean.

It is used a second time during the fight with a Spetsnaz gunship, when Maggie Powers is told by Gabe to fire on the Russian chopper.

It appears again when Logan rescues Lian Xing from al-Jamil's bunkers. In this case, Bitar's thugs fire it at an M1 Abrams working with Gabe. It is then shown another time when Gabe is assaulted by a goon working with Malak, causing him to be knocked to a lower level.


  • The SMAW is supposed to appear in the hands of a Japanese goon in Tokyo, but for some reason whatsoever this weapon is unavailable.
  • Although it can be used in The Omega Strain and Dark Mirror, the Logan's Shadow version can never be acquired.
