Investigator Weapons, Volume One

by on Mar.28, 2012, under Investigator Guides, Investigator Weapons, volume 1 - 1920-30s, Source book

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

Investigator Weapons covers handguns, rifles, shotguns, submachine guns, machine guns, flamethrowers, 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.

Hans-Christian Vortisch (author of Cthulhu – Waffen-Handbuch, GURPS High-Tech, GURPS Martial Arts: Fairbairn Close Combat Systems, and GURPS Tactical Shooting) has selected several dozens of the most typical or iconic weapons available to the discerning shooter in the 1920s and 1930s. These range from the famous Colt M1911 and Thompson submachine gun to lesser known but more widespread firearms.

Each weapon is illustrated and described in detail, as are variant models. Significantly, each weapon’s operation is described, as are its typical malfunctions. Finishing each weapon description is the movie use of the weapon – so you can see 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 – the essential weapons book for Keepers and players of all editions of Call of Cthulhu.

    This sourcebook is really great! I was wondering if you were going to publishing it hard copy or make it print on demand through Drivethrurpg or Lulu?

    Thank you!

    We are working on the dead tree version now and it will be released via Chronicle City later this year.

    To all concerned:

    This volume looks like a great addition for my thirty year old collection. However, I am no fan of the PDF format. In which month of 2012 do you expect to put out your hardcover edition? Will you all place me on your mailing list and send me an announcement when it arrives? Thank you,

      No, but there is advice in Investigator Weapons 2 for CoC 7e.
      We are considering adding the same advice to IW1 in any future reprints.
