Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands is the latest installment in the Ghost Recon franchise. It was announced during the Ubisoft E3 2015 Conference, and was released on March 7th, 2017. It is set in a massive and responsive open world, with the whole campaign playable either solo or with up to 4 friends.
The following weapons were used in the videogame Ghost Recon: Wildlands:
A Cartel member can be seen with a Beretta M9A1 in the "Fight for the Wildlands" trailer. During gameplay, the Beretta is found in a locked weapons box in the Villa Verde province and is simply labeled as the "M9." The Beretta starts with a standard issue 15-round magazine, and can be modified to accept 25-round extended magazines, various tactical laser sights, and a detachable suppressor. A unique M9A1 called "El General" is awarded to the player when they capture General Baro, a UNIDAD general. It sports a black paintjob with brown grips.
The weapon is also the default sidearm of Nomad, who will always draw a black M9 in cutscenes, regardless of the player's currently-equipped sidearm which, amusingly, will still appear inside its holster on his/her leg even in cutscenes. Agent Karen Bowman, the Ghosts' CIA contact, also uses an M9 handgun during several cutscenes.
A Colt Python with a 6 inch barrel is part of the western-themed "Last Chance" Ghost pack. It is referred to as ".357 Joker".
FN Five-seveN USG
The FN Five-seveN USG can be recovered by the player in a locked weapons box during gameplay. It starts with a standard 20-round magazine, and a weapon mod allows it to carry 30 rounds. It can be fitted with various tactical lasers and has a detachable suppressor. A customized but unmodifiable Five-seveN called the "Lady Killer" can be acquired by defeating a certain cartel buchon.
The weapon boasts decent overall performance, has the highest magazine cap for semi-automatic pistols (20 default and 30 upgraded) and the highest armor penetration stat of any sidearm, but hampered by its low rate of fire.
In the debut trailer, Midas is seen using a suppressed FNX-45. 'White Hat', a drug dealer and member of the Santa Blanca cartel, is seen wielding an un-suppressed version in trailers. The FNX-45 is the player's starting pistol in the game labeled as the P45T.
Due to it's status of being a starter weapon; it has low damage, but high handling, even compared to other sidearms.
Heckler & Koch USP45 Tactical
IMI Desert Eagle
A highly stylized Desert Eagle is seen in the debut trailer. It is indexed as "D-50" as per most recent Ubisoft titles, and is found at a UNIDAD FOB in northwestern Libertad. A unique D-50 called "La Novena" is awarded to the player when they defeat El Gato. It features an Aztec themed paintjob and engravings with a gunmetal grey and gold two tone.
Due to the lack of a threaded barrel (and general difficulty of silencing large-caliber handguns), the weapon cannot accept a silencer.
The Luger P08 is available in the "Veteran" Ghost pack. It has custom details and white grip panels with the writing S.P.Q.R on them. S.P.Q.R. is an initialism for the Latin phrase Senātus Populusque Rōmānus, literally translated as Roman Senate and People but more freely as The Senate and the People of Rome, and thus is the motto of the Roman Republic.
An M1911A1 with gold plating and ornate engraving can be seen in the Cartel Cinematic trailer. A standard issue M1911A1 with a railed frame can also be recovered in a locked weapons box on a cattle ranch in the southeastern part of the Ocoro province, simply labeled as the "M1911." The M1911A1 starts with an 8-round magazine, and can be modified to accept 15-round extended magazines, various tactical laser sights, and a detachable suppressor.
The Ruger LC380, an updated version of the Ruger LCP, is given to the player upon completing the El Emisario chapter in the Ocoro province. It is referred to as "The BFF," despite apparently being a licensed model with detailed trademarks.
The SIG-Sauer P227 can be found in a Santa Muerte house in north-central Malca and is labeled as the "P227." The P227 starts with a 10-round magazine, and can be modified to accept 15-round extended magazines, various tactical laser sights, and a detachable suppressor. This is the first appearance of this SIG P220 variant in any media.
SilencerCo Maxim 9
Available for real currency from the in-game shop is the integrally-suppressed SilencerCo Maxim 9, as part of the "Silent" Ghost Pack. Referred to as the "Whisper" in-game. This is the first major media appearance of this handgun.
Orion Flare Gun
The Orion Flare Gun appears as a unlockable skill in the Item skill tree where it can be used to attract enemies. Nomad can be seen firing the flare gun into the air in the "Fight for the Wildlands" trailer.
In one of the released screenshots a Ghost operative can be seen with a Remington ACR slung on his back, it is also the default weapon of Nomad during in-game cinematics, where it sports a collapsible stock and tan finish. The ACR can be found in a locked weapons box in the village of La Loma in the Media Luna province, which contains a UNIDAD combat outpost. It starts out with a standard 20-round magazine, and can be modified to accept 30 or 50-round magazines, various tactical laser sightings, various optical scopes, underbelly foregrips, and the M203 grenade launcher or AG36 grenade launcher.
In the debut trailer a member of the cartel can be seen dropping an M4A1 through the eyes of a scope. Midas can also be seen with one. A unique version, dubbed the "M4A1 Tactical" is given to the player after defeating Carl Bookhart. It has a brown paint job, Aimpoint Compm4 sight, vertical grip, and can only be fired on semi-auto despite its fire selector switch.
A standard M4A1 can be recovered from a locked weapons box during gameplay. The M4A1 starts with a 20-round magazine, and can be modified to accept 30-round extended magazines, or a 50-round casket magazine based on the SureFire 60-round magazine, various tactical laser sightings, various optical scopes, underbelly foregrips, and the M203 grenade launcher or AG36 grenade launcher. Some mid-level sicarios also carry M4A1s.
The AK-47 was first seen on the table opposite the Desert Eagle, and also in the hands of one of the cartel members in the trailers. In the final game, the AK47 can be found in the Libertad province. It is also the primary weapon of rebel riflemen, where it sports a camo-green stock and 20 round magazine.
The AK47 in game uses stock factory parts, so it cannot use rail-mounted handguard parts like grips or laser sights, except for the GP-25 grenade launcher.
However, 2 special AK variants can be unlocked by completing the main story missions in the Itacua province where players begin the game. They are referred to "His AK47" and "Her AK47," belonging to morbid lovebirds; El Polito and La Yuri, Santa Blanca's chief medical officers, who also happen to be their chief interrogators/torturers.
An AK-12 can be seen in the hands of a Cartel member in the "Fight for the Wildlands" trailer. The AK-12 can be found in a locked weapons box in Tobacal. A unique AK-12 called "Ritmo" is awarded to the player when they defeat DJ Perico, another variant of the AK-12 called the "GR Network" is available if players has connected to the Ghost Recon Network and tagged 10 Ghost profiles. Some mid-level sicarios also make use of AK12s.

It is indexed as "805 Bren A2". A unique CZ 805 called "El Comandante" is rewarded to the player when they defeat the UNIDAD commander in the Unidad Conspiracy missions. It has a Magpul D60 drum magazine which cannot be found in the open world.
Indexed ingame as the "G2", the FAMAS G1 is stashed away in a remote mountain hut in the southwestern corner of the map, within the mountainous Inca Camina province. It can only fire in full-automatic or single shots; for some reason there is no trigger pack with the three-round burst fire setting. The weapon also lacks damage, but makes up for it by having high RoF.
Holt can be seen with a suppressed FN SCAR-H in a pre-release screenshot and is his weapon of choice in the main game. The SCAR-H can be found in a locked weapons box in the UNIDAD-ridden province of "Flor de Oro" and is labeled as the "Mk 17." The SCAR-H starts with a 20-round magazine, and can be modified to accept 30-round extended magazines, various tactical laser sightings, various optical scopes, underbelly foregrips, and the M203 grenade launcher or AG36 grenade launcher.
Heckler & Koch G36C

Knight's Armament Company PDW
The Knight's Armament Company PDW appears in game as the "SR-635" (which is actually the name of another KAC product, a normal short-barreled AR15 design chambered in 6x35mm), and is classified as a submachine gun by the game. Midas is carrying the SR-635 as his weapon of choice equipped with a Kobra sight. It is located in a coca paste factory in the northern edge of the Ocoro province.
The L85A2 is one of the game's unlockable assault rifles. It comes with a 20-round STANAG magazine by default, an optic rail, a Daniel Defense railed forend, and Troy back-up sights. The L85 is found in the basement of La Santera, next to her chapel in Espiritu Santo.

Remington R5 RGP
The Remington R5 RGP appears in the game as an unlockable weapon, stored in the abandoned Agronomic Center in northern Monte Puncu. In-game it is the standard carbine of UNIDAD, a corrupt Bolivian Army special forces unit, who uses the standard configuration with an attached Eclan Spectre scope.
The SR-3M can be found in a cartel-controlled town in the Agua Verde province. Its also used by some sicarios, but its the main weapon of choice for rebel squad leaders, who can be seen brandishing green-colored SR3Ms.
SIG-Sauer SG 556xi Russian
The SIG SG 556xi Russian can be found in a dump in the rainforest region of Caimanes. It is indexed as "556xi", similar to the version in Rainbow Six: Siege. A variant called "SIG556 Llama" is awarded to all players who have participated in the open beta, but can be bought from the store.
The IWI TAR-21 is another assault rifle available in the game, found in the town of Choza Padre in the Montuyoc province.

By default, it is actually a CTAR-21 with the 64cm barrel, but can be turned back into a normal TAR-21 with the long barrel modification.
The POF P416 appears in Ghost Recon Wildlands as the first assault rifle available to the player. Its description refers to it as a "high end update" to the M4, but due to it being one of the game's three starting weapons (along with the MP5 and FNX-45), its stats are abysmally low. A variant called the P416 "Micteca" was awarded to players who completed Season 2's challenges.
War Sport LVOA-S
The War Sport LVOA-S from The Division is part of a thematic Ghost pack available for free for any player that owns both The Division and GR:W.

Serbu Super Shorty
The Serbu Super Shorty shotgun based on the Remington 870 variant is usable in the game. Because guns cannot hold an extra round in the chamber when reloading in Wildlands, the Super Shorty can only hold two rounds, essentially making it even more redundant than a sawed-off double barreled shotgun as the Shorty has to be rechambered between shots. It is stored in at a UNIDAD FOB where an early main story mission occurs in Itacua. A unique variant, "El Cuentista", is awarded to the player when they defeat El Wey. It has a custom red paint with its foregrip folded down.

The same custom Saiga-12K from Rainbow Six: Siege appears in Wildlands, with the same "SASG-12" moniker that several recent Ubisoft games have used for some reason. The Saiga-12 can be unlocked from a weapon crate located in an outpost in the far northeastern corner of the Agua Verde (this province contains several Russian weapons, for some reason). A unique variant of the SASG-12, "¡SILENCIO!", is awarded to the player when they defeat El Sueño.

It has significantly more damage than the standard HTI, it comes with a unique hexagon camo and detachable suppressor.
The HTI is the most powerful firearm in the game, capable of destroying a helicopter with a single, direct hit (while other bolt-action rifles needs 2 hits).

Knight's Armament SR-25 ECC
The SR-25 is seen in the official GRW website.
Mosin Nagant "Archangel"
Classic Mosin Nagant rifle in a modern stock made by Archangel Manufacturing. Known simply as the "M1891". It can be found in a crate on a makeshift runway in La Cruz, near the eastern town of Santa Elena. The weapon is also the only sniper rifle in the game that cannot mount a silencer (a bit odd since it has a threaded barrel that can accept an upgraded compensator).
Mk 14 Mod 0/1 EBR
The Mk 14 EBR appears in the game as the "Mk 14". It is fitted with the stock of the Mk 14 Mod 1 by default, but the Mod 0 stock in both extended and collapsed form can be unlocked.

Weaver is carrying the Mk 14 as his weapon of choice equipped with a G28 scope.
The Remington MSR is the sniper rifle of choice for UNIDAD marksmen. The MSR can be found in a rather dangerous mining tunnel in the Montuyoc region, towards the western boundary of the map, which also happens to be the base of Carl Bookhart, Montuyoc's buchon.

CZ Skorpion Vz.61
The original Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion is also featured in the game. As with the MAC-10, it is a very common weapon used among regular cartel hoodlums; and as with the M10, the only modification for the Vz.61 is the option to extend or fold the stock. Additionally, both weapons are classified as sidearms due to their small size. It can be unlocked in the Remanzo province.

One of the most common guns used by lower-level Santa Blanca Cartel gangsters is the Ingram MAC-10. Although the player can pretty much pick one up an any time from a cartel goon, it can be unlocked for use in the inventory from a quarry in Pucara. For whatever reason, the only modifiable element of the M10 is the option to extend or collapse the stock. As with the other recent Ubisoft titles, it appears as the "SMG-11". It is also carried as a sidearm, in the player's pistol slot.
Izhmash PP-19 Bizon-2
The Izhmash PP-19 Bizon returns from the previous game; it was first seen in the "Fight for the Wildlands" trailer. The Bizon is a fairly popular weapon carried by cartel goons. It is found on a barge serving as a cocaine lab floating in eastern part of the massive lake in Agua Verde, rounding out the arsenal of it and the Saiga-12 and SR-3M that some Russian must've lost in that province. A unique variant of the Bizon, "Residuos", is awarded to the player when they defeat El Pozolero. It has a dirty and rusty look with a white and black two tone and only comes equipped with a Kobra sight.
Izhmash PP-19-01 Vityaz-SN
Another weapon carried over from Rainbow Six Siege, the PP-19-01 Vityaz is an SMG available for the players arsenal. It's stored in a fairly massive Santa Blanca stronghold in the Inca Camina province. A unique variant of the PP-19, "¡UY!", is awarded to the player when they defeat El Chido.

The Patriot Ordnance Factory PSG is stored in a cartel stronghold in the San Mateo sector. The PSG is the pistol-caliber carbine counterpart to the POF P416.
The SIG-Sauer MPX is another SMG available in the game. It can be found in a weapon crate in the Mojocoyo province. Some higher level cartel sicarios also use the SIG MPX.
Named "Vector .45 ACP", as it has been in Ubisoft shooters since Far Cry 3. The Vector is stored in a very well defended UNIDAD base in the northern half of Media Luna. By default it uses 15 round magazines; 25 rounders must be unlocked from an accessory box. A unique variant of the Vector, called the "Mendeleyev" is awarded to the player when they capture Marcus Jensen. It has a carved skull over the magwell and sports a white paintjob.
Krytac Trident MK II (Ares-16 AMG)
The Krytac Trident MK II LMG, an airsoft gun based on the Ares Shrike is available in the game, under the odd designation of "MK249" despite not being based on the M249 SAW or any other FN Minimi derivative in the slightest. It is the weapon of Unidad heavy soldiers.
It is stored in a weapon box in a cartel outpost in the Malca province. A unique variant called the "Llamativo" is awarded to the player after they have interrogated Carzita. It has an EXPS3, a foregrip and sports a black and gold paintjob.
A heavily engraved Bren Gun is the primary weapon of the "Veteran" Ghost Pack. It's missing both the carry handle and the bipod, the latter of which is replaced with a vertical wood foregrip.
Heckler & Kock HK121
The Heckler & Koch HK121, indexed in game as the "MG121," can be found fairly early on in the game, at a cartel outpost in the starting province of Itacua. It is modeled with a 50-round drum magazine that is incorrectly given a capacity of 90 rounds. It also has a three-round burst mode that the real HK121 lacks.
Knight's Armament LMG A1
Nomad is armed with a Knight's Armament LMG A1 machine gun in the "Stealth Takedown" trailer. It is referred to as the "Stoner LMG A1" in game, and it is the only light machine gun that can be fitted with a sound suppressor. The KAC LMG can be found in the fortifications around El Sueño's massive mausoleum in Pucara.
Mk 48 Mod 0
In the debut trailer, Nomad is seen using a Mk 48 Mod 0 to great effect. Cartel gunman are seen using them in the "Fight or the Wildlands" trailer. It is located at a Santa Muerte pilgrim house in eastern Espirtu Santo.
The PKP Pecheneg is the standard machine gun used by the heavy soldiers of both the Santa Blanca cartel and the Katari's 26 rebels. As with other Ubisoft titles, it appears as the "6P41." It also has the railed forend of the Zenitco bullpup conversion. The PKP is stored in weapon crate in a large UNIDAD base in Media Luna. Strangely, it cannot mount an underbarrel grip, despite clearly showing that it has rails on the underside capable of supporting such attachments.
A unique variant called "El Bastón" is awarded to the player when they defeat Madre Coca, which sports a wooden stock and grip, making it a look like a pseudo-PKM.
Known in game simply as the "Type 95", the QBB-95 also returns from the previous game and is stored in a UNIDAD forward operating base in the Remanzo province. Although the menu icon and several official images shows it loaded with the standard drum magazine, the Type-95 uses a extended magazine that somehow carries 75 rounds. It also uses 5.56x45mm rounds, making it the export version of the QBB-95.
A heavily customized RPK is available as DLC or as part of the Deluxe Edition. It has a custom RIS handguard/scope mount combo and Magpul PRS stock, and somehow manages to cram a whopping 175 rounds into a normal 75-round RPK drum magazine. It is named incorrectly as "UNIDAD's RPK-74".
Mounted Machine Guns
GE M134 Minigun
GE M134 Minigun appears as the most commonly mounted gun in the game, largely fulfilling the role of the game's heavy machine gun. It has an unusually (if not unrealistic) wide-spread availability, given that everyone from UNIDAD, to SB sicarios, to even the Bolivian rebels use M134s as their mounted guns of choice.
The AH-1W Cobra attack helicopters used by UNIDAD have rather short-looking M197 Vulcan guns mounted in the chin turret, although they behave similar to the M134 Minigun mentioned above.
M203 grenade launcher
The M203 grenade launcher appears as an underbarrel accessory for a number of assault rifles such as the M4A1, SCAR-H, and others. Judging by the style of RIS mount, it appears to be based on an airsoft model.
Heckler & Koch GLM
The Heckler & Koch GLM appears as the "Standard Grenade Launcher". It is only available on certain rifles, namely the AR15 pattern weapons and the SCAR-H. It is incorrectly shown as breech-loaded like the GP-25.
The stand-alone FN EGLM appears as an underbarrel accessory for certain assault rifles. Rather confusingly, it shares the name "Standard Grenade Launcher" with the aforementioned GLM. It is incorrectly depicted as breech-loaded like the GP-25; the EGLM is loaded similar to the M203 in real life, by sliding the barrel forward.
GP-25 Grenade Launcher
The GP-25 grenade launcher appears in Ghost Recon: Wildlands as the "GP-25 GL", and is the Russian counterpart to the M203.
