Just what the Helghast needs to defend themselves against the ISA.

StA-18 Pistol

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Side arms
Sights: Iron sights

The Helghast counterpart of the M4, the StA-18 sacrifices some power and accuracy for a higher rate of fire.

VC8 Shotgun Pistol

Faction: Helghast/Visari Corp.
Class: Side arms
Sights:
Iron sights

The VC8 offers good stopping power at short range, but quickly becomes less accurate over larger distances.

StA-2 Battle Pistol

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Side arms
Sights: Iron sights

As a sidearm the StA-2 is only really useful in close quarters battle, where its tremendous power can fell most targets in a single blast.

StA-52 Assault Rifle

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Rifles
Sights: Iron sights

The StA-52 assault rifle is the mainstay of the Helghast army. Although it lacks the accuracy of its ISA counterpart, the M82, it makes up for this with a higher rate of fire and larger ammo drum size.

StA-52SE Assault Rifle (Suppressed)

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Rifles
Sights: Iron sights

The suppressed version of the StA-52 assault rifle fires in bursts to minimize recoil. Although it reduces the fire rate, the suppressor keeps the player from showing up on enemy radar when firing.

StA-14 Rifle

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Rifles
Sights: Reflex sight

Fitted with a reflex sight, this powerful low-recoil rifle is the best suited for mid- to long-range engagements. While it lacks the extreme accuracy of the VC32, it has a much higher fire rate.

VC32 Sniper Rifle

Faction: Helghast/Visari Corp.
Class: Rifles
Sights: Illuminated 2x and 5x zoom telescopic sight

Two different zoom levels allow the VC32 sniper rifle to be used in mid-range and long-range combat. For optimal accuracy, the weapon should be fired from a crouched position.

StA-11 Submachine Gun

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Close quarter firearms
Sights: Iron sights

The StA-11 SMG boasts low recoil and a high fire rate, and does tremendous damage at close range. It is ideally suited for ‘run & gun’ type tactics.

StA-11SE Submachine Gun (Supressed)

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Close quarter firearms
Sights: Iron sights

The suppressed StA-11 SMG keeps the player from showing up on enemy radar while firing. The state of the art suppression mechanism does not sacrifice fire rate or accuracy.

StA-3 Light Machine Gun

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Machine guns

The StA-3 is an LMG with a sizeable ammo drum and a tremendous fire rate. It is unmatched in its suppressive capabilities, especially when fired from a crouched position.

StA-62 Minigun

Faction: Helghast
Class: Machine guns

Originally intended for stationary defense, the immensely powerful StA-62 can be dismounted and carried around, although the weight of the weapon slows down the operator.

VC9 Rocket Launcher

Faction: Helghast/Visari Corps
Class: Rocket launchers

The VC9 is ideal for taking down enemy vehicles and entrenchments. Although it lacks the homing capabilities of the W.A.S.P. Launcher, it has a relatively fast reload rate.

StA-X3 W.A.S.P. Launcher

Faction: Helghast
Class: Rocket launchers

Like the StA-62, the StA-X3 can be dismounted and carried. The weapon fires a volley of homing missiles in primary fire mode, and a targeted ‘bunker buster’ strike in alternate fire mode.

StA-X6 Jetpack

Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Vehicles

The StA-X6 comes equipped with a belt-fed submachine gun based on the StA-11 design. The range of the weapon has been upgraded to allow the wearer to fire from great heights.

PXM199 Proximity Mine

Faction: Both
Class: Explosives

The proximity mine tracks the proximity of enemies and explodes when one enters within a two meter radius. Unless the target is extremely well-armored, this is usually enough to neutralize any enemy.

VC116 Sentry Turret

Faction: Helghast/ Visari Corp.
Class: Special

The VC116 is an automated defense turret that can be deployed by Helghast Engineers. It has excellent detection range, but only average firepower and accuracy.
