F2P First-Person Shooters That Are Not Team Fortress 2
a.k.a. Online FPS.
Of particular note is a very interesting East Asian pattern for such games, featuring hefty doses of microtransactions and player customization, aesthetically atrocious weapon variants (were talking about slapping a 3D dragon on the side of a gold AK here), aesthetically atrocious everything, waifu bait, outdated engines, and are so oddly consistent you'll swear that they might be reskins of each other. Japan doesn't like FPSs, so Korea started it, China copied it, and now they're everywhere in Asia. They will be automatically added to this list if they are even tangentially related to Tencent, Nexon, or some other Sino-Korean gaming megacorp.
The Eastern European model is noted as being unusually hardcore.
There are a few more TF2-esque Western models down here though.
In no particular order:
- Alliance of Valiant Arms
- Arctic Combat
- Call of Duty Online (did you know that Tencent locked the first character with its own killstreak ability behind a loot box? The character can use the Sparrow from COD BO3, but you need to get loot boxin to get her, and it's not any loot box, it's Tencent lootbox. Time-limited loot boxes using Tencent's own Tencent funbucks.)
- Combat Arms (lots of guns without parent pages and generally a mess)
- Counter-Strike Online
- Counter-Strike Online 2 (Gave up. If you want to complete it you can do it by taking screenshots of videos of people demonstrating the weapons. Also here's a demonstration of all the weapons ported into GMOD. Except for the aiming down sights part and weird weapon FOV everything is as they were in the base game, including all the janky reload animations.)
- Cross Fire (AR-57, QBU-09/10, RSh-12, Pindad SS2, Pindad SS2 bullpup named SS3)
- Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex First Assault
- Operation 7 (2006)
- S.K.I.L.L - Special Force 2
- Warface (clean up mateogalaisms but cannot play game at all)
- Contract Wars
- Dirty Bomb (done... mostly. Got lazy at the end.)
- Glorious Missions (Civilian version)
- Ghost Recon: Phantoms (third-person shooter)
- GunZ 2: The Second Duel (Korean Online TPS)
- Battlefield Play4Free
- Battlefield Heroes
- Heroes & Generals
- Metro Conflict: The Origin (closing in June)
- Black Squad
Seburo & Posiedon things
Seburo (Japanese: セブロ) is a fictional arms company created by Japanese science fiction mangaka Masamune Shirow. The company and its products have appeared in multiple works by Shirow (Ghost in the Shell, Appleseed, New Dominion Tank Police, Black Magic M-66, etc).
Despite being entirely fictional guns not based on any real weapon, the cyberpunk design of the guns were popular enough to inspire some "defictionalization" recreations. Dai-Nihon Giken Poseidon is a notable Japanese studio that produces airsoft conversion kits and model replicas for anime and manga weapons, including Seburo weapons, as well as other Anime-inspired original creations, such as the CQB TYPE-0 "RAISEN" conversion kit seen in Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries (2003) or the Seburo Type 06 IkaZuchi conversion kit that led to the creation of the Jing Gong Thunder Maul.
This list primarily documents creations Dai-Nihon Giken Poseidon. It is likely that other Seburo weapons not covered by Poiseidon will have their own replicas done by other studios. Some of the following products may no longer be available. Most are not available outside of Japan anyways.
Also: Trident Works. Distributor for custom models? Including Poseidon?
Multiple Japanese (and a few English) sources I read specify the in-universe caliber as the 5.7mm Compact round, based on the 5.7x28mm used on the P90. The weapon was also described by these sources as holding 30 rounds in universe. I am not sure if these originate from an official source from Shirow or somewhere else.
Type 06 IkaZuchi
Grader Single Hand 2043
Earth Federation Force Standard Issue Pistol
Chinese weapons are a fucking mess, in short. And I don't mean design-wise, I mean when it comes to documenting, categorizing, or even simply identifying them. We're talking one gun with three different names kinda mess.
Here's me trying my best to comb through Chinese military forums to scoop up any new info I can gather so I can paint a clearer picture of the entire Chinese weapons production spectrum. Do not expect anything for a while.
- When we're talking about export, the primary buyers seem to be second and third world countries like Myanmar, Rwanda, and Sudan.
- Research is difficult and unreliable.
- Not a complete list by any means.
- I'm only including weapons from post 1949 mainland China in this list. I might do another list for the other side of the straight some day.
- "W-number" weapons may be written with or without a dash, as far as I know.
- AFAIK, the three letter designations all refer to individual “descriptors” that describe properties of the firearm and serve classification purposes. The descriptors are individual words/phrases and are not whole names. QBZ for instance stands for three words in Chinese, light weapon, rifle, automatic, and should not be translated into lightweight automatic rifle.
- Type X names are still used in Chinese to refer to the three letter named weapons. E.g.: QBZ-95 or Type 95 assault rifle. Either should be OK.
Type 56C (a.k.a QBZ-56C, Type 56-3)
Type 84S (Type 84s are all intended for export)
Type 95 Family
Standard-issues being issued standardly.
"Type 97 Family" (I probably came up with this name)
Export model of the Type 95 rifles. In Canada you'll find the Type 97 NSR, a civilian variant of the QBZ-97 with 5 round mags (via the mag screw), semi-auto only. They're made and exported by Norinco under the Emei (or EMEI) brand, named after the Emei mountain in China.
Also, recent news suggests that some Chinese companies (or China) rebranded a bunch of export 95s/97s as NQZ-03A/Bs. No idea what they mean or how do they differ.
- Type 97
QBZ-97 (genuine QBZ-97 image not found, will be uploading one)
"Type 95-1 Family" (I definitely came up with this name)
Improved variants of the Type 95, in Chinese 95改 (95 Gai), "Type 95 modified". Differences are the removal of the front grip, putting the selector on the grip instead of on the stock, and new redesigned handguard, among other less visible changes.
Type 82 (clone of Polish PM-63)
QCW-05, also known as the Type-05
CS/LS3 is a Chinese clone of the MP5.
Early model CS/LS06 (a.k.a CS/LS6, Chang Feng 9mm SMG, CF-05)
W-85 heavy machine gun (W prefix indicates export)
QJC-88 (vehicular MG variant of W-85, used on Chinese MBTs)
Chinese clone of Browning M2HB. There are a lot of CS-slash weapons, anything from 2-11. It's gonna take a while if I want to cover all of them.
Other Rifles/Assault Rifles
Type 56 Carbine ("Type 56 semi-automatic rifle" in Chinese, compare Type 56 assault rifle)
Norinco Model 311 (a.k.a. Norinco CQ)
There are a few oddities with little info, some of which can be found on Gun wiki. We also seem to be really into anti materiel rifles these days.
NDM-85 (more research needed, not sure what are its differences with the NDM-86)
Norinco NDM-86 - 7.62x54mm R
NSG-85 / CS/LR19 (now this I have absolutely zero idea and zero reliable sources. Some said that it was made by Norinco, but other sources said that it was made in a collaboration between multiple companies, conveniently without mentioning Norinco. It also disappeared for a while only to reappear with the new name in another police expo... I don't even know.)
AMR-2 (intended for export?)
M99 (intended for export? not to be confused with Barrett M99)
Semi-automatic M99? There are a lot of mentions of different M99 stuff out there on Chinese internet.
No page on IMFDB but I still want to mention this thing. 12.7mm AMR.
I mentioned a QBU-09/10 in the F2P documentation above for Cross Fire. It is a Chinese 12.7mm anti-materiel semiauto sniper rifle. QBU-10 is the finalized version of QBU-09. Cross Fire is considered to be one of the biggest F2P MTX messes on the planet however, so I won't be touching that thing with a 10 foot pole.
Anti materiel rifle prototype?
Most Chinese official names use the name "Riot Gun" to refer to shotguns. They are most commonly used by police forces after all. They also use 18.4mm to refer to the 12 gauge chambering.
Hawk 372 Shotgun (U.S. import name: Interstate Arms 372)
QLZ-87 (earliest design named W-87)
Type 51 (clone of M20 Bazooka)
QBS-06 - Chinese version of APS Underwater Rifle
We have two images that can be seen below. Chinese OICW-like system. a.k.a. ZH-05 (media sources say that this is a misnomer), official name is QTS-11.
Notes to self
- The Fliegerfaust can be seen in Gearbox's early footage for Brothers in Arms Furious 4.
- Guns for The Hunter and other hunting games.

- HK MG images with drum, Brenner 21 HK11A1
- Red links and pageless guns on Operation Flashpoint games (mainly Chinese guns)
- There was an old shitty Wii First-Person Shooter I played once called Red Steel that had some real guns.
- Cannons without parent pages across the whole site (e.g. BF1918)
- The Smith & Wesson 22A, currently a black link (a term I coined myself, a piece of text where a link would be but the page isn't there yet) on the S&W page (but with a MPM2008 image), is found in the recently released Co-op FPS Earthfall.
- Is this gun CZ-584 or CZ-581?

Gun Images Without Pages
These guns often do not merit having proper pages due to not having any proper appearance in any media form (most are uploaded to this site as reference images when a weapon in a media resembles but only resembles the particular real weapon). This is not a call to make pages for them and is instead simply a storage place for easy access when we want to make pages for them. If they are legit appearances, then you won't see them here and you should be expecting me to be working on a page for them right now. If an image has a storaged writeup that is in the talk page (e.g. Talk:Colt SCAMP), you won't see them here. If an image is a variant of some other weapon with a page I'll be moving it to the talk page.
Note that this list is not complete in anyway and is more of a passion project. I might exclude some talk page only gun images and some grenades or toy guns.
Possible: Colt Defender shotgun image. It is not uploaded to this site yet, but it is possible that somebody will upload it as a reference image for the LJ-10 Volleyjet in Depth.
I used to also maintain a list of guns of fictional origin and with real replicas but are never used as props (tl;dr: anime guns), but I figured that we're unlikely to make any pages on them.
The Rheinmetall MG 39 Rh is an experimental general-purpose machine gun that was meant to replace the MG34. (this image is on MG 34 talk page right now, but would warrant a split into individual page should it ever get a proper appearance)
Such rifles were (and still are) produced by various manufacturers in Europe and America; They are often referred by the German term Kipplaufbüchse.
