Abstract: In an intercomparison exercise, the Monte Carlo codes most commonly used in gamma-ray spectrometry today were compared with each other in order to gauge the differences between them in terms of typical applications. No reference was made to experimental data, instead, the aim was to confront the codes with each other, as they were applied to the calculation of full energy peak and total efficiencies. Surprising differences between the results of different codes were revealed.
