An average gamer and internet enthusiast from China. Not an expert on firearms, but would liked to help with building the wiki by providing images or fixing typos.
Sorry for all the justifying edits in advance. I have problems with anxiety and sometimes takes things the wrong way.
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talking about slapping a 3D dragon on the side of a gold AK here), aesthetically atrocious everything, waifu bait, outdated engines, and are so oddly consistent you'll swear that they might be reskins of each other.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
- Combat Arms
- Counter-Strike Online
- Counter-Strike Online 2 (I might work on this, but the servers are shutting down in May so most likely I will do it the H3VR way, i.e. taking screenshots of videos of people demonstrating the weapons since there's actually quite a bit of it here in China) (AR-57 PDW)
- Cross Fire (AR-57 and RSh-12)
- Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex First Assault
- Operation 7 (2006)
- S.K.I.L.L - Special Force 2
- Warface (clean up mateogalaisms)
- 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
- Ironsight (I'm interested mainly because they have a LWRC submachine gun)
Seburo & Posiedon things
Seburo (Japanese: セブロ) is a fictional arms company created by Japanese mangaka Masamune Shirow. The company and its products have appeared in multiple works by Shirow.
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 circle that produces airsoft conversion kits and model replicas for anime 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.
Some of the following products may no longer be available. Most are not available outside of Japan anyways.
Type 06 IkaZuchi
Grader Single Hand 2043
Earth Federation Force Standard Issue Pistol
