Yakuza 5 (龍が如く5 夢、叶えし者, Ryū ga Gotoku 5: Yume Kanaeshi Mono, lit. "Like a Dragon 5: Fulfiller of Dreams") is a videogame by SEGA released in December 2012 in Japan and December 2015 in the rest of the world as a digital download for PlayStation 3. A remastered version was released in Japan in June 2019 for the PlayStation 4, with a worldwide release scheduled for just prior to Valentine's Day 2020. It features five playable characters in five different cities.
The following weapons appear in the video game Yakuza 5:



Beretta 92FS

Making a return from Yakuza: Dead Souls is this Beretta 92FS model. The shape of the safety catch and hammer are different compared to the real life model, and there is also a large "step" on the slide like the earliest variants of Beretta 92.

Makarov PM

This handgun has appeared in every Yakuza game since Yakuza 3. It retains its same differences from the real Makarov as it does in all these other games; those being an extended barrel and ring hammer. This also appears in-game as the "9mm automatic pistol," as well as a multicoloured version called "Mr. Random."

Baikal-442 - 9x17mm Browning/9x18mm Makarov/9x19mm. It is a Canadian market import model of the Makarov. It features an long barrel, not seen on the military Makarov pistol.

Modified SIG P230

A very customized version of the SIG P230 with a bronze finish and a differently-shaped trigger guard appears as the "Dragon Special" pistol. Why they decided to recycle this highly inaccurate model from Yakuza 3 rather than reuse the much more accurate model from Yakuza: Dead Souls is unclear.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

A Smith & Wesson Model 36 with a custom handgrip and 2.5" barrel is purchasable as the "Double Action Revolver," which wrongly holds 6 rounds. It also does not appear to be modelled with a cylinder release.

Baikal MP-133

The Baikal MP-133 shotgun can be purchased as the "Broken M1985." This name may be a reference to the questionable build quality of these weapons.

Coach Guns

A number of different Coach Guns are used as part of Taiga Saejima's hunting sidequest. These are referred to as "rifles" in the game, so are likely fitted with rifled barrels and firing slugs for bear hunting. This would classify it as a rifle in many countries, but the IMFDb definition of a shotgun is a weapon that is chambered for shotgun cartridges.

Submachine Guns

Minebea M-9

Another returning player model from Yakuza: Dead Souls is a submachine gun based on the Minebea M-9, a Japanese licensed variant of the Uzi submachine gun. It is seen in a scene where yakuza men open fire on the Theater Square. These guns are fitted with what appear to be suppressors, but the gunfire sound is not actually suppressed.

Unknown Rifle

The weapon dealer van model returns from Yakuza 3, complete with these strange looking rifles. They almost resemble an Armalite AR-10, except with a misshapen sight/carry handle and an odd front grip.
