Rainbow Six: Vegas
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas is a highly acclaimed first-person tactical shooter based on the Rainbow Six Universe created by Tom Clancy. It is the fifth installment in the Rainbow Six series. The game introduces numerous new features, including the regenerative health system, dynamic covers, deeper weapon customization and the ability to blindfire from covers. Players are also allowed to toggle the suppressor on their weapons anytime. The game correctly tracks the +1 round in the chamber and most weapons feature usable fire-mode selector switches.
The following weapons appear in the video game Rainbow Six: Vegas:
Handguns act as tertiary weapons in the single-player campaign or terrorist hunts, and as secondaries in multiplayer. Unlike in most video games, pistols can only be swapped for other pistols. They can also be used in conjunction with a riot shield, or while rappelling on a rope. All pistols have unlimited ammo in all game modes.
The Beretta 92FS appears in the game as the "92FS", can be modified with suppressor, laser sight and high capacity magazines (+3 rounds) like the other pistols. It can also be found on an L.V.P.D. officer's body in one of the levels. The safety on the 92FS is always on.
The Glock 18C appears in the game and can be modified with a laser sight. For some fairness, the magazine size is limited to 10, whereas the standard Glock 17/18/34 magazine holds 17 rounds. Can fire in semi-auto and full-auto modes. Appears as "Glock 18", however the compensator cuts can be seen clearly on the barrel.
Heckler & Koch USP40
The H&K USP appears in the game as the "USP40", can be modified with sound suppressor, laser and high capacity magazines like the other pistols.
Heckler & Koch Mark 23 Mod 0
The H&K Mk 23 Mod 0 appears in the game as the MK.23. Can be modified like all the pistols. It is the most popular pistol on online servers. It has front cocking serrations like the Phase II Prototype of the Mark 23.
IMI/Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark I
The Desert Eagle Mark I appears simply as "Desert Eagle" in the game. It can be modified with laser sight and high capacity magazines, but cannot accept a sound suppressor. It incorrectly holds 7 rounds (suggesting that it is the .50AE Mark XIX), despite this particular model being only chambered in .357 Mag and having a 9-round capacity. The pistol's recoil is greater than all other sidearms except for the Taurus Raging Bull. The Raging Bull and Desert Eagle often get one shot kills with a less than perfect shot.
Taurus Raging Bull
The Taurus Raging Bull revolver appears in the game, it can only be modified with laser. Some terrorists carry the Raging Bull as a secondary weapon. The one used in the game is most likely chambered for .480 Ruger due to its 6-round cylinder capacity and massive power.
Submachine Guns & Personal Defense Weapons
Brügger & Thomet MP-9
The Brügger & Thomet MP-9 appears in the game as "MP9", and it replaces the Steyr TMP of the previous R6 games. Can be modified with every attachment. Fires in full-auto and semi-auto, and holds 30 rounds.
FN P90 / P90TR
The FN P90 appears in the game with and optional 3-round burst fire mode, even though the real weapon cannot fire in that mode. It can accept all attachments.
The P90 turns into a P90TR once a reflex sight or rifle scope gets mounted on it.
Heckler & Koch MP5N
The Heckler & Koch MP5N is the starting submachine gun in the game. Can be modified like all weapons in the game. The selector is correctly modeled as of the MP5N (safe/semi/auto), yet the gun can fire in 3-round burst mode, although the real MP5N does not have that fire mode.
Heckler & Koch MP7A1
The Heckler & Koch MP7A1 with a 40-round magazine is in the game, and can be modified with everything. The suppressed MP7A1 is the secondary weapon of Jung when he isn't using a G36C and of Walter when he isn't using a Mk.48 machine gun.
Heckler & Koch UMP45
The H&K UMP45 appears in the game as one of the most powerful submachine guns. It is always fitted with a vertical fore-grip and can be modified like the other SMG's. Its "2-round burst" trigger group enables semi-auto, 2-round burst and fully automatic fire. The weapon has a high overall rating, the only drawback is the 25-round magazine.
The Ingram MAC-11 appears in the game with 32-round magazines and like the other weapons, it can be modified. Fires only in fully automatic. It is incorrectly shown firing from a closed bolt instead of open-bolt.
Assault Rifles & Battle Rifles
The AK-47 is used by enemies in the Mexican levels, it can be modified with a laser sight, ACOG, reflex scope, suppressor, and rifle scope. Interestingly, it is modeled with the less curved 5.45mm magazine of the AK-74 despite being a 7.62x39mm weapon.
FN SCAR-H CQC
The First Generation FN SCAR-H CQC appears in the game as "SCAR-H CQC" and is fitted with a non-removable vertical fore-grip. Can be modified with everything.

Heckler & Koch XM8
The Malaysian version of the Heckler & Koch XM8 appears in the game as the "M8", assuming that in the Rainbow Six universe the U.S. Military has adopted the rifle and thus dropped the "X" prefix. It can be modified with everything. Very popular weapon on multiplayer servers.
IMI Tavor TAR-21
The Tavor TAR-21 is in the game as the "MTAR21" even though the MTAR-21 is actually the micro version (see the cut weapons section below for why it was named as such). It can be modified with everything, however choosing no attachments will still put an ITL MARS sight onto it, because iron sights are not available. It is very popular on online servers due to their high rate of fire. Players who have taken a liking to the Tavor have often been called "MTARDs".
SIG SG 552
The SIG SG 552 appears in the game as the "552 Commando" and can be modified with a reflex scope, ACOG, laser sight or rifle scope. It features a full-length rail on the top for mounting optics. It is modeled with 20-round magazines, but holds 30 rounds.
Steyr AUG A3-CQC
The Steyr AUG A3-CQC is in the game as the "AUG A3" and can be modified with everything. It is portrayed with a selector (with semi and auto fire modes), while the real AUGs have no selectors, but two-stage triggers instead.
Benelli M3 Super 90
The Benelli M3 Super 90 appears in the game as the "M3". It can be modified with laser sights, rifle scope and reflex sight. It is portrayed as a pump-action shotgun, although the real-life one is select fire pump-action/semi-auto.
C-More Systems M26 MASS
The M26 MASS (Modular Accessory Shotgun System) appears in the game as "XM-26 LSS" (LSS standing for Lightweight Shotgun System) and is only used in a stand-alone configuration. In reality, the M26 is more often used as a under-barrel mount system for M16/M4-type weapons. The actual weapon is a manually-operated straight-pull bolt-action shotgun and does not have a semi-auto or automatic capability as depicted in the game. It can be modified with a laser sight, a rifle scope, or a reflex sight.
The Franchi SPAS-12 appears in the game, it can be modified with laser sights, rifle scope and reflex sights. Just like the M3 Super 90, it is restricted to pump-action mode.

Unlike its counterpart in the Ghost Recon series, the MG36 in the Vegas spin-offs lack the select-fire capability (semi, 2-burst, auto) of an actual MG36.
AN/M14 incendiary grenade
The AN/M14 incendiary grenade appears in the game as the "incendiary grenade", and can set enemies on fire with an orange "mist", but disrupts thermal vision.
Breaching charges are used to quickly open closed doors. The explosion can kill the enemies behind the door at extremely close range.
The C4 charge can be used to set up ambushed and kill enemies from a safe distance. It can also be used as an improvised breaching charge, with a larger kill radius but without disorientating any other occupants of the room.
M18 Smoke Grenade
The M18 smoke grenade appears in the game and can be used to conceal the movements of the player and the team, the team being able to use thermal imaging to see through the smoke. Some enemies will also use these as well on occasion.

The M84 stun grenade appears in the game being used by members of the Rainbow team during "flash and clear" dynamic room entries, being tossed into a room to disorient enemies so they can be eliminated. Enemies will occasionally use them as well.
Other / Unusable Weapons
A nickel plated M1911A1 can be seen on the weapon customization menu.
IMI Tavor MTAR-21 Prototype
The TAR-21 shows up as the MTAR-21 Prototype during the weapon selection quick-menu. Since the TAR-21 appears as "MTAR21", this weapons was probably planned but changed to the full variant before release.
In some scripted events, the terrorists fire rockets at the player. It is unknown what weapon model being is used, because only the rocket coming towards the player can be seen. One of the team members says that it is an RPG.
