Handguns

Beretta 92FS Inox

The first weapon Burik can acquire is a Beretta 92FS Inox with black grips, and controls. Because the pistol uses the same texture on both sides, it has an ambi takedown lever and slide release. Has unlimited ammo. The Beretta cannot be swapped away.

Desert Eagle Mark XIX

Felipe Lial carries a black Desert Eagle Mark XIX pistol in .50 Action Express in the first parts of the game. Later he switches to a Beretta 92FS Inox.

Desert Eagle Mark XIX - .50 AE. The newer Mark XIX models are most distinguishable by the scope rail mount above the barrel, clearly visible here. This is the version of the Desert Eagle popularized by The Matrix, and the most common in current movies and TV shows.

Felipe points the Desert Eagle at Burik. Burik is calm because he knows the Desert Eagle is a single action handgun, and Felipe cannot shoot him without cocking the hammer first.

SIG-Sauer P228

Burik holds a P228 on the cover of the game. The same image is seen during the installation menu of the PC version of the game.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A5

The Heckler & Koch MP5A5 is known as the "SMG". The selector switch is always on safe. The MP5A5 fires in full-auto only, the semi and burst modes are decorative only.

"Wheelman" reloads his MP5A5. Just like in San Andreas, the main character only "imitates" a reload, but does not change magazines at all. Usually, NPC's aren't even bothering to reload.

Uzi

The Uzi appears as the "Machine Pistol" and holds 32 rounds.

Rifles

AK-47

A large, floating icon of an AK-47 (Type III with a weird front sight) is used to mark the weapon caches.

AKM

The AKM is known as the "Assault Rifle" in the game, and can be described as a hybrid AK; as it has a milled receiver but lacks the strengthened receiver cover, and has an AK-47 style front sight (which is probably the result of a lazy modeling). Miguel Delgado is seen holding an AKM on his character photo.

Burik tries to kill a cop with his AK. Interestingly, the game will not punish the player for killing civilians or policemen (except of the wanted level), even though the main character is supposed to be an undercover agent.

Colt Model 727/723 Hybrid

The "Carbine" is basically a Colt Model 727 with the A1-type barrel of a Model 723.

Shotgun

SPAS-12

Wheelman is yet another game to feature the SPAS-12 as the resident pump-action shotgun.

Machine Gun

FN Minimi / M249E2 SAW Hybrid

The machine gun's overall model resembles the current (2012) FN Minimi (it has a flat sided handguard with textured panels, a cone-shaped flash suppressor, no heat-shield), however minor details (such as the pistol grip with a thumb relief, shape of the trigger guard) are from an M249E2 SAW.

Grenade Launcher

M79

The M79 grenade launcher is known as the "Grenade Launcher" and is capable of destroying most vehicles with one shot. This is the last weapon that can be unlocked by completing the most Hot Potato deliveries. During the reload, Burik imitates putting a grenade into the muzzle of the M79, even though it is break-action.
