“I shot my answering machine today. Took out the old twelve gauge my father left me, and blew it to pieces. A silly, futile gesture, I know, but it illustrates my present state of mind, I think.”– Paul F. Wilson, ‘The Barrens’ (1989)

Investigator Weapons for Call of Cthulhu in the Modern Day era is a comprehensive collection of weapons available to stalwart investigators of the Cthulhu Mythos and their crazed cultist opponents.

Investigator Weapons 2 covers handguns, rifles and assault rifles, shotguns, submachine guns and personal defence weapons, machine guns, grenade launchers, rocket launchers, melee weapons, explosives, and special ammunition; and gathers together all the spot rules for injury, environmental conditions, and firearms combat in one place, as well as introducing many optional rules for enhanced play. It is particularly suited for settings using Chaosium’s Cthulhu Now, Pagan Publishing’s Delta Green, and Cubicle 7’s The Laundry.

Hans-Christian Vortisch (author of Investigator Weapons 1: The 1920s and 1930s, GURPS Covert Ops, GURPS High-Tech, and GURPS Tactical Shooting) has selected many dozens of the most typical or iconic weapons available to the discerning shooter today. These range from the famous Glock 17 pistol, H&K MP5 submachine gun, and Kalashnikov assault rifle to many lesser known but even more widespread firearms – as well as specialized designs developed for assassins, combat divers, and special forces.

Each weapon is illustrated and described in detail, as are numerous variant models. Significantly, each weapon’s operation is described, allowing Keeper and players to convincingly portray its use and effect. Finishing each weapon description is the movie use of the weapon – so that you can see and hear it in action – and a comprehensive statistics bar.

Keepers are not forgotten either. Typical weapons for non-player characters are suggested, as are likely weapons for cultists from around the world. A Keeper’s chapter examines the consequences of magic on firearms and ammunition, and the effect of firearms on Mythos creatures.

Investigator Weapons 2 – The essential modern weapons book for Keeper and players of all editions of Call of Cthulhu.

Now available as PDF and POD from this site.

This is what some reviewers had to say:

“The book is so much more than just a collection of fire arms that I’d consider it indispensable to anyone running a modern game.” ‒ Chad Bowser (Cthulhu Invictus, Victoriana)

“They have lots of nice details, photos, and even suggestions for films in which each weapon can be seen in use. I’m not a gun guy, but these sure look like the bees’ knees to me.” ‒ Kevin Ross (Cthulhu by Gaslight, Escape from Innsmouth)

Really good thing. Unfortunately it's lacking some of most important Eastern Block weapons. But for investigators working in US of A it's a must have. Also - some older weapons should be reprinted (I'm mostly playing in 1990, but some weapons included [...]

Like volume 1, this volume provides detailed rules and discussions on a wide variety of firearms, this time running from roughly the period of World War II to the present day. The purpose of the book is to provide Keepers and Investigators alike with [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
