The ``deadly dozen'' will have an impressive arsenal of weapons to assault or defend themselves against the enemies including a machete, Colt 45 pistol, M1 Garand, Thompson MI, M1903A Sniper Rifle, BAR, flamethrower and Bazooka. Enemies will be attack with a Nambu automatic pistol, an Arisaka Bolt-Action Rifle, Type 99 light machine gun, Samurai swords and more.
