The Type 38 rifle is a Japanese bolt action rifle used by Imperial Japan in World War II. It is featured in Medal Of Honor: Pacific Assault and is seen in Medal Of Honor: Rising Sun, though in Rising Sun it is not a usable weapon. The Arisaka was adopted in 1905 and served until 1945. The Type 99 rifle was meant to replace the Type 38 but due to the outbreak of the Pacific War never allowed the army to replace the Type 38 and the two rifles served together.
