Homefront Guide

Weapons

There are a variety of weapons to choose from in Homefront’s multiplayer. While creating a class, you can only choose one gun and one special explosive from this weapon category. You will always have a M9 pistol as your sidearm.

I had to do rough estimations for the damage values for each weapon. I was not able to find the PC code to know the exact values. Therefore, I do not know how fast (RPM) these weapons shoot. I will list the weapon, the fire mode (full auto/semi auto/burst fire), the ammo capacity, the damage per bullet, and the reload time. According to my calculations, Headshots add 2.1x damage to each bullet, while Flak Jacket reduces bullet damage by 25% (.25x). Damage also drops off at distance. The M9 bullets do 15-30 damage. This means they will kill with 4 bullets up close and up to 7 far range. Headshots will kill an enemy quicker, while flak jacket keeps an enemy alive longer.
