World War Z (2019 VG)
Work In Progress
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.
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 the Glock 18 machine pistol, except that it shown firing in 3-round burst mode instead of full-auto.
The "Machine Pistol" can be customized with a long slide, making it resemble a Glock 40.
The Ruger AC556 appears as the "Scout Rifle" or "Mini-21" as one of the three starting primary weapons for certain classes.
The IMI Uzi appears as the "Compact SMG" as well as the story name of "Gal-9" as one of the three starting primary weapons.
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.
Colt AR-15A3 Tactical Carbine
The Colt AR-15A3 Tactical Carbine appears as the "Sporting Carbine" or the in-game story name of the "PAC-15". This is a possible upgrade over the Scout rifle for certain classes. By default, it is fitted with a fixed stock instead of a collapsible one.
The AK-103 appears in-game both as the "Assault Rifle" as well as the lore name "ARK-103".
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
A slightly modified Heckler & Koch MP5A3 appears in the in-game world as the "SMG" or "TMP5".
Knight's Armament SR-25
The Knight's Armament SR-25 appears in the in-game world as the "Sniper Rifle" or the "MK110".
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.
There is also a modified version of this Remington/Benelli hybrid as a secondary weapon, known as the "Compact Shotgun" which appears to just be the "Combat Shotgun" that someone sawed the barrel down on.
ST Kinetics CPW
The ST Kinetics CPW appears as either the generic "PDW" in-game or the "Senjata PDW" in the lore (Senjata is Indonesian for "weapon") as a full auto secondary weapon.
Heckler & Koch HK416
The Heckler & Koch HK416 appears as the "Assault Carbine" although the lore name does call it a "HW416".
The FN SCAR-H appears as the high-tier semi-auto rifle as the "Battle Rifle" or "HAMR-17".
IMI Tavor TAR-21
The IMI Tavor TAR-21 appears as the "Bullpup Rifle" or the "XTAR-95 as the high-tier 3 round burst rifle.
The KRISS Vector appears as the "Advanced SMG" or the "Keris V10" presumably as a reference to the Kriss K10 prototype.
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.
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.
Heavy Weapons (Tier IV)
M79 grenade launcher
The M79 grenade launcher fitted with pistol grip appears as the "Grenade Launcher," although the lore name calls it a "Thumper GL."
The Barrett XM109 appears as the "Payload Rifle," referred to in game as the "BF25 Sniper Rifle." It fires explosive rounds.
Heckler & Koch MG4
The Heckler & Koch MG4 appears as the "Machinegun," although the lore name calls it a "MAG5."
RG-6/Milkor MGL hybrid
Emplaced Browning M2HB turrets appear throughout the game and are player-usable against the horde.
