Okay, yes, I know, this is an old article, which was deleted in June 2012 due to lack of effort at the time. I remember looking at it eons ago ; it didn't feature screenshots, or if it did, they were of poor quality. But I have the capability of making decent screenshots, as well as access all of the game's weapons. I think this PS2 game has too many guns NOT to be included on IMFDB, and it deserves justice. This is the first article I intend to completely build from the ground up, so if I'm doing anything wrong please let me know here or on my own talk page. Due to the sheer amount of weapons in the game, this will be a multiple-day effort. This is quite evidently a work in progress, the page is FAR from complete, but I will be coming back to this article as regularly as possible. Please bear with me!

How are you getting screenshots? PS2 titles don't exactly have "HD resolution" visuals if they haven't been officially remastered. Anyway, is there any chance you could go back through the earlier Syphon Filter titles and screencap the Air Taser, the series' most infamous weapon? --Mazryonh (talk) 21:50, 9 January 2017 (EST)
I am using an emulator to get these screenshots. Turns out this title runs perfectly well on PCSX2! The resolution is arguably not the native one, rather it matches that of my monitor; I hope that is not an issue, native resolution is something around 640x450. As for your air taser screenshot request, here you go, from Syphon Filter 3. SU Tempest (talk) 22:33, 9 January 2017 (EST)
That's one of the advantages of emulators, since we can get higher-resolution screenshots from older games (pity nothing can be done about the models' polycounts and textures without remastering, though). Anyway, make sure to include entries for the various taser models in the Syphon Filter series. I left a placeholder on the Taser page here just for the Syphon Filter series in general, since it's probably one of the first "Lethal Joke weapons" that became popular in a major game series. Why Sony hasn't remastered Omega Strain is anyone's guess. A remake of the first 3 games would also be welcome.--Mazryonh (talk) 00:07, 11 January 2017 (EST)
I'll happily include the EDT and the EPDD, Omega Strain's tasers, on the page, as soon as I get to them. SU Tempest (talk) 10:54, 11 January 2017 (EST)

Unidentified weapons

Combat shotgun

Tentative guess is Remington 11-87 with extended tube, but I'm really not certain. The front sight blade throws me off. Here are extra screenshots, if anyone can tell me what that is? SU Tempest (talk) 23:37, 9 January 2017 (EST)

My guess is that it is a Beretta 1201FP semi auto shotgun: --Flavio (talk) 11:38, 10 January 2017 (EST)
Good eye! I think that might be it. SU Tempest (talk) 19:18, 10 January 2017 (EST)
