World War Z is a third person shooter developed by Saber Interactive that is loosely based on the book of the same name and set in the same universe as the movie it shares it's name with. In a style similar to Left 4 Dead, players play 4 different survivors spread around various locations such as Moscow, Jerusalem, New York City and Tokyo dealing with massive hordes of zombies as well as various objectives. The guns in-game are broken into 4 different tiers with a few basic types of gun such as shotguns, semi-auto rifles, burst fire rifles and so on within each tier.


Tier I

Colt M1911A1

The M1911A1 appears as the "Pistol" although the story calls it the "1911 Protector" The M1911 is the starting Secondary Weapon of every class unless upgraded. The pistol also comes stock with a suppressor which is good as it allows you to be stealthy and pick off zombies from the horde.

Glock 17 MOS

The Glock 17 MOS appears as the "Machine Pistol" in the menu and the "Geist 17MP" in the story. It is likely intended to pass for a Glock 18 machine pistol, except that it shown firing in 3-round burst mode rather than full-auto.

Remington 870

Although it is named the "M500", the Tier 1 shotgun is really a Remington 870 with only a scant resemblance to the Mossberg with the squared off trigger guard. It is one of the other starting weapons.

Remington 1100/Benelli M4 Super 90 hybrid

The "Combat Shotgun" or "S890" is a bit of a mix of influences, seemingly based on the Remington 1100 but fitted with parts from the Benelli M4 Super 90, namely the collapsing stock and top rail/rear sight.

Remington Model 1100 Tactical - 12 gauge. This version has a slug barrel, rifle sights, and oversized charging handle.

Fostech Origin-12

The Fostech Origin-12 appears as the "Assault Shotgun", with the lore name "Taiga 12", the latter being based on name of the Saiga 12, which was the weapon the Fostech Origin-12 was based on. It also comes complete with a full stock instead of a brace and non-standard length barrel and handguards.

Unknown Crossbow

A crossbow appears simply as the "Crossbow" although the story in the game calls it the "Repeater X". Unlike most real world crossbows, the in-game one seemingly uses explosive bolts, most likely for balance reasons as it would not be all that useful as most weapons in-game can acquire suppressors rendering the crossbow's advantage a tad moot.
