These are the weapons which appeared in the video game adaptation of Quantum of Solace.
The Walther P99AS appears in game as Bond's standard sidearm, using its correct name. This is the current-generation P99, instead of his usual 1st generation that he has carried since Tomorrow Never Dies. The gun fires 9x19mm Parabellum rounds and can be equipped with a suppressor. A gold-plated version is available in multiplayer.
The Glock 17 pistol appears in the game as the GF17. This of course is a reference to the film Goldfinger. It can be equipped with a suppressor. The Glock 17 was featured in Tomorrow Never Dies and Casino Royale
Glock 17 converted to full auto with chrome slide
In the Wii version, the there is no G18/17. They are replaced with a Glock 17 (Converted to Full Auto). This is called the GF18.
Smith & Wesson SW1911
Smith & Wesson Model 500
This revolver is a Smith & Wesson Model 500. It only holds 5 rounds, hinting that it shoots .500 S&W rounds. It is called the LTK Super Magnum in the game, an obvious reference to the Bond film "Licence to Kill". The reload animation depicts Bond emptying out all the chambers in the cylinder, retaining the live rounds and tossing the empties, and then replacing each chamber with a fresh round.
A gold-plated Smith & Wesson Model 686 is available only in the multiplayer. Notably, it fires explosives bullets that behave more like grenades. Unlike previous cinematic and video game Golden Guns, it is a revolver, not a single-action pistol. The Golden Gun in the novel The Man with The Golden Gun, was however a revolver, albeit a Colt SAA instead of a Smith & Wesson.
Although never seen or used in the game, the silhouettes of the bond girls at the main menu screen are seen holding Walther PPK pistols.
The MAC-10 is referred to in-game as the Mantis (a small submarine in For Your Eyes Only). It can be upgraded with a laser, and is one of the most common weapons in the game. The gun appears in these levels: Siena, Science Center, and Venice.
Heckler & Koch MP5A2
The Heckler & Koch MP5A2 appears as the SAF 9mm. It comes with tri-rail handguards and a forward pistol grip. The gun can also be modified with an ARO red-dot scope and a suppressor, and a gold-plated version is available for multiplayer use. This gun appears in the levels Siena, Miami, Airport, and Casino Royale.
Heckler & Koch UMP
The Heckler & Koch UMP makes an appearance in this game. It can be equipped with a suppressor and laser. It's called the SAF .45, even though it clearly has the curved magazine only present on the 9mm UMP. The UMP made several appearances in the film Casino Royale, and is prominent in promotional artwork for Quantum of Solace. This gun appears in the levels White´s Estate, Bregenz and Train.
A Calico M950 pistol is used in this game, appearing in the Science Centre and Bregenz stages. Also, in the ship level the name it is given is the TLD22, after the film The Living Daylights. Calicos were also used by Carver security guards in the Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Though the "22" in the name may lead players to think the weapon is a .22 Calico, it is in fact a 9mm. This gun appears in the levels in Bregenz, the Science Center, and the Barge.
The Colt M4A1 appears in this game as the TND-16. It fires 5.56mm NATO ammunition and comes standard with a R.I.S.-styled rail handguard and vertical foregrip. It can be outfitted with a suppressor, an EOTech sight, and laser sight (in single player missions only). This weapon is named after the film Tomorrow Never Dies. Strangely, in the campaign, after inserting a new magazine, Bond feels inclined to rack the charging handle on the M4A1, even though a round is in the chamber already. No round will be extracted at this point, in fact, the bolt doesn't even move. Even if he is reloading on an empty magazine, he could just use the bolt catch instead of cocking it. This gun is used in the levels Bolivia, Airport and Venice.
Beretta CX4 Storm
The Beretta CX4 Storm although not directly in the game, the VKP-08 bears a strong resemblance to the CX4. The VKP-08 actually features a bullpup design and fires rifle rounds, as opposed to the CX4 Storm's pistol rounds, and has a longer barrel. The similarities are marked, though.
The first generation FN SCAR-L assault rifle appears in the game as the MKIII LLD. The name of the weapon is a reference to Live and Let Die. The game version is the SCAR-L, noted by the STANAG magazine.
The Steyr AUG appears in the game as the A3 Raker. It is only usable in three levels, Siena, Casino Royale, and Eco Hotel. However, it is shown in an in-game cutscene during the Siena level. It appears in multiplayer modes as the "A3 Recon". This weapon is named after the film Moonraker. Despite the A3 designation present in the in-game name, this AUG is actually an A1.
An AKS-74U makes an appearance in this game during the Madagascar and Barge stages. Called the FRWL in the game after the film From Russia with Love. The Kalashnikov series of rifles has been represented in a majority of Bond films and video games, the AKS-74U in particular was used in the movie Goldeneye.
The M14 Rifle appears in this game, simply called the M14. The version in game has a Sage EBR stock, though the actual buttstock resembles a Magpul PRS. It is also given a vertical foregrip as standard, and can be modified to use a scope, suppressor, and/or A.R.O. red dot scope in multiplayer. A scoped variant can also be used in the Sink Hole level, which seems to do twice as much damage as later unscoped M14's.
FPK / PSL Sniper Rifle
A FPK / PSL Sniper Rifle with some features of an SVD Dragunov appears in the game as the V-TAK. The name comes from the film A View To A Kill. It can be outfitted with a night-vision scope, laser and suppressor. Strangely, in Multiplayer and Online, it is called the WA2000, even though it's not.
Walther WA 2000
The Walther WA 2000 sniper rifle is used in this game, under its actual name. It is notable that all Walther firearms actually are referred to by their correct names in this game. The Walther WA2000 was previously used in the film The Living Daylights by Timothy Dalton during the sniping sequence.
A fictional box-magazine fed shotgun is referred to in-game as the A4 Hutchinson.
A Remington 870, with an S & J Hardware rail system (the AR15-870 CQB MKII) to give the shotgun its distinctive look in the game. Used on a number of levels, usually as a perk to exploring. The 870 in the game does have a fiber optic sight on the front of the rail system, unlike the real-life rail system. Also of note, the name 'Hutchinson A3' is given to it by the weapons designer for the game, who has the last name of Hutchinson.
Winchester 1300 "Defender"
The Winchester 1300 "Defender" is only seen in the Wii version's Multiplayer, under the name "1300 AUTO".
M60 machine gun
The M60 machine gun appears in the game as the 8-CAT. It is often found in hidden containers as a bonus for exploration. The weapon's name is of course a reference to the film Octopussy. Stamper (Götz Otto) used one to kill British sailors in Tomorrow Never Dies.
Milkor MGL Mk 1S
The MGL Mk 1S rotary grenade launcher appears in the game under the name of the D.A.D. System, after the film Die Another Day. It appears in the Sink Hole, Science Center and Airport stages. Has a similar reload animation as the S&W 500, and thus holds the dubious honor of "Longest Reload Time".
This weapon is used during the Venice stage, where it is used to kill Gettler, similar to the film Casino Royale. In the XBOX 360 and PS3 versions of the game, the player is rewarded for shooting Gettler through his blackened lens, mirroring his death in the film.
Various grenade types
In-game, you can use fragmentation, flashbang, and smoke grenades, all of which have different forms.
