Fictional Handgun

During a flashback of the first game in the port's extended opening, AMS agents Thomas Rogan and "G" use a fictional handgun called "AMS EATER Custom", the main weapons of House of the Dead 1. According to the first game's guide book "The House of the Dead Official Guide", it is a heavily modified unknown handgun converted from 9×19mm to 50.AE. It is also equipped with enlarged ambidextrous safety lever, magazine release and single-column 6 rounds magazine. The render's official artwork resembles a custom M1911, similar to a Colt Mk IV Series 80 Combat Elite. In-game, Rogan's pistol seems to resemble a Glock 17, while G's resembles a Colt M1911, though.

Submachine Guns

The Intratec TEC-9 appears as the "Machine Gun" in the port's Original Mode. It hold 6 rounds (rifle rounds no less, as seen in the ammo HUD), which are fired automatically in a single discharge.

Ithaca 37

A pump-action shotgun with an extended tube magazine appears as the "Shotgun" in the port's Original Mode. Although the render clearly depicts a pump-action shotgun, the in-game shotgun is actually a double-barreled shotgun, which can hold only two rounds. Judging by its overall design, the Shotgun appears to be based mainly on an Ithaca 37, with the horizontal line ports (holes drilled in the barrel to prevent muzzle jump) of a Mossberg 500A Field Gun.
