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talking about slapping a 3D dragon on the side of a gold AK here), aesthetically atrocious everything, waifu bait, outdated engines, and are so oddly consistent you'll swear that they might be reskins of each other.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:

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

Type 06 IkaZuchi airsoft gun. This is a conversion kit for the Tokyo Marui M4A1 airsoft gun. This is an original design from Dai-Nihon-Giken Poseidon. The Jing Gong Thunder Maul is based on this design.

Chinese Guns

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.

Notes

  • 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 56

Type 81

Type 84

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 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.

Handguns

Submachine Guns

Machine Guns

Other Rifles/Assault Rifles

Sniper Rifles

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.

Shotguns

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.

Grenade Launchers

UBGL

Rocket/Missile Launchers

Others

Notes to self

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.

Savage 1861 Navy - .36 caliber
Bergmann No.5 - 7.8mm Bergmann
DP-64 grenade launcher ("anti-saboteur weapon") - 45mm
Brazilian home-made SMG seized by police - probably 9x19mm Parabellum
QTS-11, the rumored "ZH-05" - 5.8x42mm & 20mm Grenade. Tested by PLAN.
QTS-11 system.
TP-82 - 5.45x39mm & 12.5x70mm (32 gauge)

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)

Rheinmetall MG 39 Rh - 7.92x57mm Mauser
Monolith Arms P-12 shotgun with FN P90 for comparison.
USFA ZiP Gun - .22 LR
OTs-38 Stechkin - 7.62x42 mm SP-4
OTs-01 / TKB-0216 / RSA "Kobalt" revolver (Russia)
Franchi SAS-12 - 12 Gauge
Safir T-17 - 5.56x45mm
Cosmi Deluxe Lusso
Alka M-93 - 9x19mm
Russian four-barrel percussion cap pepperbox revolver.
OSSh-42 Flare Pistol - 26.5mm
RS-31 - 5.6mm Gevelot small caps
Italian S.I.P.E. hand grenade
Turkish Type 2 hand grenade
Star Second Model I - .32 ACP
modern replica of M1857 Württembergisch .54 Caliber Percussion Musket by Pedersoli

Such rifles were (and still are) produced by various manufacturers in Europe and America; They are often referred by the German term Kipplaufbüchse.

Savage Model 219 - .30-30. A good example of top-break single shot rifle, similar to the screen guns.
German manufactured Martini Action Schuetzen Rifle
1880s Belgian manufactured Auguste Francotte Pistolet de Tir de Salon pistol - 9mm Flobert rimfire. The screen gun is very similar to this sample.
