The weapons used in Syphon Filter: Combat Ops are as follows.

General Overview

Although multiplayer modes have existed in the previous Syphon Filter games, this title is so far the only game that solely contains multiplayer activities, in other words, it has no storyline whatsoever. Players can select five different slots, a convention first started in The Omega Strain.

  • Special - this is a unique weapon. All players will ONLY have the choice of a sniper rifle that can fire regular bullets as well as 'darts' that can be triggered to fire at any point.
  • Back - this contains assault rifles, carbines, machine guns, shotguns, launchers, sniper weaponry etc, and therefore has the largest quantity of options available.
  • Sidearm - this is obviously a pistol category
  • Auxiliary - referring to submachine guns, and short rifles or certain carbines.
  • Grenade - explosives or other area denial weapons, such as smoke canisters, containers which have a gaseous agent etc

More options are available as a player ranks up. A default weapon all the participants of a match receive, regardless of rank or faction, is the long-range taser (EPDD) available from the original Syphon Filter, which made the franchise so infamous.


Heckler & Koch Mark 23 SD

As in the Logan's Shadow multiplayer, the standard weapon of Gabe Logan can be used by everyone.

The SPA-12 returns in Combat Ops and still isn't a Franchi SPAS-12. It is also not Browing Over and Under shotgun, but rather is a TOZ-34.

Sawed-Off Shotgun

This exclusive weapon to the multiplayer of Dark Mirror and Logan's Shadow returns also in this multiplayer-exclusive title. It is better than the Sawed-Off Pistol, but is an auxiliary weapon, so can't be dual wielded.

Shoulder-launched Multi Purpose Assault Weapon (SMAW)

Unlike Dark Mirror single player appearance the SMAW can used by any player.


Milkor Multi Grenade Launcher (MGL) Mk

The MGL has a 4 grenades-per-cylinder capacity, so you can't have a fully loaded MGL once again.



Using the model of Omega Strain, this is actually a true M79.

Over Under

The Logan's Shadow new weapon appears also in Combat Ops. It is based on a Colt M16 that fires only in three round bursts and the M203 grenade launcher attached on the rifle fires grenades that explode on the impact. The weapon in-game mostly seems to resemble the M-16A2.

C8 Rifle

The Heckler and Koch MSG90 returns incorrectly referred to as the "C8 rifle" as was the case in The Omega Strain. It shares the same model as the "MB-150", but was infamous in TOS for having a 50-round drum magazine allowing it to be used at will as an assault or sniper instrument. Despite its callsign, it does not bear any relation whatsoever to the true Colt Canada C8.

DSC-1 Thermal

The thermal version was fully usable in Omega Strain in the Minsk mission, like any other weapon of Omega Strain returns in the multiplayer mode of the later games and if a player found it will be helped by the thermal scope, due the lack of thermal googles.
