Nice, but where's the trigger?

Resident Evil 6 (known as Biohazard 6 in Japan) is the eight numbered installment (counting Resident Evil Zero and Code Veronica) in the Resident Evil video game series.
The game features four intertwining playable story scenarios, all of which can be played in co-op. Leon's story has the player take control of US Secret Service agents Leon S. Kennedy and Helena Harper, who are caught in a new C-virus zombie outbreak in the US city of Tall Oaks, which zombified US president Adam Benford. Leon and Helena must escape from Tall Oaks alive and track down the perpetrators of the zombie outbreak.
Chris's story has the player take control of Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA) members Chris Redfield and Piers Nevans, the sole survivors of a disastrous operation to contain a C-Virus B.O.W. attack in the war-torn Eastern European country of Edonia Republic. Chris goes into a self-imposed exile over his failures, and is called back into action by Piers to deal with a new B.O.W. attack in the Chinese city of Lanshiang.
Jake's story follows mercenary Jake Mueller (son of Albert Wesker) partnering with US government agent Sherry Birkin (daughter of William Birkin) trying to escape from Edonia. Sherry is sent on a mission to find and extract Jake, whose blood contains antibodies that could become a cure for the new C-Virus outbreaks. Sherry and Jake are in pursuit by a giant B.O.W. named Ustanak, and must escape from Edonia and try to defeat the hulking Ustanak.
Ada Wong's story chronicles Ada's actions across the entire story. When playing in co-op, a featureless character known as "Agent" takes the role of Ada's partner, who has zero interactions with the story and zero personalities.
The following weapons are seen in the video game Resident Evil 6:
WARNING: MINOR SPOILERS
The "Wing Shooter" is Leon's handgun. It is primarily based on the H&K VP70 with elements of the Walther P5, but longer than both, with the magazine release of a Walther P99QA. Leon carries two Wing Shooters, and can toggle dual-wielding by using the alt-fire command. When using it during quick shot, Leon will alternate firing each weapon left and right. The Wing Shooter has a magazine capacity of 18 rounds, and has an underbarrel laser sight.
The Wing Shooter appears to be one of the main weapons issued to Secret Service agents at Tall Oaks. One can be found on the floor beside a deceased agent towards the beginning of Leon's first chapter. As an interesting note, the Wing Shooter can apparently accept 909 magazines, as Leon can be seen taking one from the chest rig of a dead BSAA operative. It's also possible the BSAA fields this handgun as well.
As an interesting bit of trivia, in the first scene of Leon's campaign, where he is forced to kill his old friend, US President Adam Benford, Leon can be heard "staging" the trigger. This is a feature of the real VP70, where the user can partially pull back the trigger without firing, and then immediately fire by applying a bit more force to the pull, like a double-action revolver.
IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX
Returning yet again as the "Lightning Hawk", it is based on the same custom Desert Eagle with wood grips that appears in previous games, altough this time it has some fictional design aspects like a slide bulging at the bottom, the barrel having a squared end and the accessory rail has been replaced with compensator cuts. It appears in Chapter 4 of Leon's campaign in the cockpit of the plane. Holds 7 rounds, and uses .50 AE magnum ammo (distinct from the "Elephant Killer's" .500 S&W magnum ammo). As in Resident Evil 5 the weapon's hammer remains cocked with each shot, unlike most games, which feature the magnum firing in double-action only mode.
Helena's primary sidearm appears to be a Steyr M9. Ada Wong is also briefly seen with one in the opening cutscene of her campaign, however she never uses it in-game. The Imposter Ada also wields one in her brief tag-along section in Chris' campaign. Oddly, it also appears in Chris' holster, even though the gun he pulls out is a "Nine-oh-Nine". The M9 is called the Picador in game, named after the lancers in traditional Spanish bullfighting. The handgun has a 16-round magazine and is amongst the most powerful in the game, prompting many gamers on the PC to use her Mercenaries loadout via inventory managers.
Several Picadors can be found in the Gun Shop in the first chapter of Leon's story (though aside from Helena's none can be used). This suggests the weapon is a fairly popular 9mm in the Resident Evil universe, and not a custom gun.
Both Chris Redfield and Jake Mueller carry Taurus PT909s, which are called "Nine-oh-nines" in game. Has a 15-round magazine. Some appear in the hands of survivors of the Tall Oaks Biohazard toward the beginning of Leon's scenario, suggesting it is the main handgun of Tall Oaks PD. An early cutscene shows Leon taking a 909 magazine from a dead BSAA operative, suggesting it can share magazines with the Wingshooter.
Sherry's primary sidearm is called the "Triple Shot". It appears to mostly be a Frankenstein gun that appears to be a combination of the SIG-Sauer P220 Sport and Beretta 93R. It has a red dot sight above the slide and a select-fire mode, allowing the player to alternate between single shots and three-round bursts. As with the previous game's 93R's burst fire, the full three-round burst is fired only when the trigger is held down. A careful trigger finger can allow for single shots or 2-shot bursts.
The Elephant Killer is loosely based on the Smith & Wesson Model 500 For the first time in the series it gets to chamber the correct ammunition, .500 S&W, rather than the generic magnum ammo from RE5 and the misnamed .5 caliber ammo from Re4. As an interesting side note, the M500 is depicted as being a hinge-opening revolver, as opposed to have a swing out cylinder as it does in real life. It does, however, feature the correct five round capacity of the real revolver.
BSAA member Piers Nivans carries a Heckler & Koch UMP9 with extended side rails and an upper rail. Its in-game designation is "MP-AF", which stands for "Machine Pistol-Accurate Fire". Its fire mode can be toggled between single shot and full auto. Holds 30 rounds and uses 9mm rounds.
Some enemies are armed with guns mainly based on the Ruger MP9, with elements of the Cobray M11/9. Ada Wong carries this weapon in her campaign. It holds 50 rounds. Called the "Ammo Box 50" in game. Much like in Resident Evil 4, Ada will hold this weapon from the hip.
FN Tactical Police
The "Assault Shotgun" is primarily based on the FN Tactical Police. It can be found and used by Chris, Piers and Ada; several can be found inside the Gun Shop in Tall Oaks during Leon's campaign, but none can be used. It holds 7 rounds. Despite the presence of a pump, it incorrectly fires in semi-auto; however, when reloading, the player character will work the pump as if it were a pump action.
Due to its fast rate of fire, the weapon is especially popular in the PvP DLC "Survivors" (a mode first introduced in the previous game); when paired with the "Rock Steady" skill, which decreases recoil, it's possible to juggle an enemy player until either they die or you run out of ammo. This is frowned upon in polite gaming society.
The fictional, triple-barreled Hydra shotgun from Resident Evil 5 makes a return. Helena carries this weapon at the start of Leon's campaign. However, it doesn't fire 12 gauge rounds like the regular shotgun or assault shotgun, but rather, specialized 10 gauge rounds that are hard to find. When firing quick shots, Helena will dodge acrobatically in the direction of her target, allowing her to both obliterate the target if close enough and dodging other enemy attacks.
Ithaca 37 "Stakeout"
A pump-action shotgun that resembles the Ithaca 37 makes an appearance with a pistol grip, wooden pump, a heat shield/rails combo, and red-dot sight.
A composite rifle that does not seem to be based on anything in particular. Elements of Resident Evil 5's SIG-Sauer SIG556 HOLO, the DSA SA58 OSW, Remington ACR, and many other Western-developed rifles can be seen. Comes with a 40mm grenade launcher as standard armament. Unlike the "Grenade Launcher", this weapon can only use the HE grenade.
"Assault Rifle For Special Tactics"
A composite rifle that has apparently been adopted by the BSAA to replace the G36s and SIG556 HOLOs they originally carried. It is similar to an ACR, However it has a carry handle and charging handle similar to the FAMAS. The weapon has on its right side an AN/PEQ-15A laser sight and a 30-round magazine. The game states it is chambered in 5.56mm. One can be seen in the hands of a survivor at the gun shop in Tall Oaks during Leon's story, suggesting the weapon is available to civilians, or was in use with Tall Oaks PD.
A rifle most closely resembling the AEK-971 is also usable. Outfitted with a bayonet and side-folding stock. Listed in-game as the "Assault Rifle RN".
SIG-Sauer SSG 3000
In Jake's and Ada's campaigns, a sniper rifle similar to a SIG-Sauer SSG 3000 or a Steyr Scout can be used. A scopeless version of the rifle, apparently with wood furniture, can also be seen at the Tall Oaks gun shop. As with every other gun present, it cannot be used.
"Anti Materiel Rifle"
Piers' main weapon in Chris' campaign is a massive fictional sniper rifle called the "Anti-Materiel Rifle" which appears to be a cross between the Mechem NTW-20 and the Barrett Model 98 Bravo. The weapon is a straight-pull bolt-action, using the large NTW-style carry handle as a charging handle, with a 10-round magazine of 12.7mm ammunition. It features a two-setting magnifying scope, with the alt-fire toggling between standard and thermal scope modes.
"Semi Automatic Sniper Rifle"
Leon and Helena acquire one at the Tall Oaks Cathedral; Chris and Piers find one aboard a People's Liberation Army aircraft carrier co-opted by Neo-Umbrella.
Piers also uses one in all his alternate loadouts in the Mercenaries; Ada's unnamed partner "Agent" also uses one, as does Ellis from Left 4 Dead 2 in No Mercy.
Light Machine Guns
Hybrid Machine Gun
The fictional M249-RPD-PKM hybrid machine gun from Resident Evil 5 reappears again and is seen being carried by some J'avo. Similar to Resident Evil 5, this weapon is only used during the car chase sequence in Chris's campaign.
The RPG-7 appears in-game being used by some J'avo. Leon uses one at the end of his campaign. Chris uses one in The Mercenaries game with his alternate costume, as does Coach.
Unlike previous versions of the weapon the RPG-7 is not discarded when empty, but instead held onto. Furthermore, reload animations exist for the weapon, suggesting at one time the weapon was supposed to play a more major role in the story mode. In No Mercy, it is the only "power" weapon which doesn't spawn ammo.
Fictional Grenade Launcher
Sherry's "Bear Commander" assault rifle is seen with a fictional tip-down barrel grenade launcher attached underneath the barrel.
Grenade Launcher hybrid
A grenade launcher that appears to be a cross between the two main grenade launchers of the Resident Evil series, the ARWEN 37 and the Milkor MGL makes an appearance in the game as being usable by Chris or Piers. Fires three different kinds of ammunition: Explosive, Acid and Nitrogen. It holds six 40mm rounds.
During Chris' campaign, a BSAA cleanup crew armed with M2 Flamethrowers is seen destroying J'avo pupae in the wreckage of an apartment block. The flamethrower model is lifted directly from the Uroboros Mkono fight in Resident Evil 5.
Browning M2s in remote weapon stations can be seen mounted on BSAA APCs during Chris' campaign.
During a crossover event in both Chris and Jake's campaigns, the characters have to fight off waves of enemies and two giant bosses while sabotaging a series of vintage Flakvierling 38 anti-aircraft guns that are being used to attack BSAA helicopters.
The GAU-19 hybrid that was seen in Resident Evil 5 makes its return appearance. Two are mounted on the back of BSAA Hummvee in Chapter 5 of Leon's campaign. Chris can use one in Chapter 2 of his campaign to fend off a large B.O.W. Two are mounted on the rear door of the BSAA Chinook in Jake's campaign in Chapter 1. Ustanak, the creature that pursues Jake and Sherry throughout the campaign, at one point has three of these weapons mounted on a platform that connects to his right arm. As in Resident Evil 5, all of these guns have unlimited ammo but will overheat from continous fire.
During a remarkably silly battle in Chris' campaign, he and Piers must face off with a parked aircraft armed with three giant GE M134 Miniguns.
M230 Chain Guns are seen mounted on an attack helicopter seen in Chris' campaign and, rather strangely, the small helicopter Leon and Helena use to escape at the end of their campaign, the latter with no clear source of ammo.
A rather strange railway gun seen during Chris' campaign mounts a replica of the 80cm "Schwerer Gustav" railway gun with the front section of the barrel removed. The carriage shown is implausibly small and somehow self-propelled without having any kind of visible engine.
