Phantom Forces is a multiplayer first-person shooter developed by StyLiS Studios. The game, which is available on the Roblox platform, was first made available on June 2nd, 2015 for consoles and August 31st, 2015 for PC. It is a modern shooter heavily inspired by the Battlefield franchise, specifically Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4, with some of the maps and weapons of 4 and the heads-up display of 3 making a near-identical appearance in Phantom Forces. The 4-class system of the Battlefield games is also present, but without the unique gadgets and abilities of those classes.

Phantom Forces sets itself apart with an extremely diverse selection of over 180 firearms ranging from black powder revolvers to the most modern military rifles. Each and every weapon may also be extensively modified to suit a player's needs, with available attachments including optical sights, suppressors, foregrips, extended magazines, caliber conversions, alternate ammunition types, and lengthened/shortened barrels.


The following weapons appear in the video game Phantom Forces:


Overview

There are 4 classes in Phantom Forces, which, due to the lack of Battlefield-inspired gadgets, differ only by the types of primary weapons that they have access to. The first class, Assault, can equip Assault Rifles, Carbines, Battle Rifles, and Shotguns. Support, the second class, has similar weapon offerings, except they use Light Machine Guns instead of Assault Rifles. The Scout class has access to Personal Defense Weapons, Carbines, Shotguns and Designated Marksman Rifles. The final class, Recon, has access to Sniper Rifles, DMRs, Battle Rifles, and Carbines.

Each class can equip one primary weapon, one secondary weapon, one grenade, and one melee weapon. Primary weapons are split into several categories, which are Assault Rifles, Battle Rifles, Carbines, DMRs (intermediate and full-power semi-automatic rifles), LMGs (and GPMGs), PDWs (submachine guns and a few carbines), Shotguns, and Sniper Rifles. Secondary weapons, which are shared across all classes, are categorized into Pistols, Revolvers, Machine Pistols, and a catch-all "Other" category. Grenades are divided among three categories, those being Fragmentation, High Explosive, and Impact. Weapons can be unlocked by increasing one's personal "rank", which is done by gathering XP awarded by eliminating other players or completing objectives, or pre-bought with Credits, an in-game currency that is acquired by ranking up, selling in-game skins, or spending real money.

Every gun in the game can be modified in the loadout menu to add (or remove) various parts, which are unlocked on a per-weapon basis by accumulating kills or spending credits. Most weapons can use one "optic" attachment (includes iron sights, holographic sights, and scopes), one "barrel" attachment (suppressors, muzzle devices, changing barrel length, shotgun chokes), one "underbarrel" attachment (grips, flashlights, lasers), one "other" attachment (side-mounted lasers and flashlights, alternate/remove stocks, extended magazines, canted sights), and one "ammo" attachment (hollow point, armor piercing, overpressure, slugs, flechette, conversions). Although many attachments are available to all weapons (with some exceptions), many guns feature modifications that are unique to that weapon or weapon class. Some unique modifications change the weapon in such a way that it becomes another firearm entirely; for example, the Kel-Tec KSG has access to the unique "KSG-25 barrel" modification, which transforms the shotgun into the KSG-25 both functionally, by extending its barrel and magazine tubes, and literally, by changing the weapon's name to "KSG-25" in the loadout menu and killfeed. This will be taken into account when considering if a weapon appears in Phantom Forces.

Pistols

Pistols in Phantom Forces are split between automatic pistols (and some single-shot pistols) and machine pistols. They can be equipped in the secondary slot and are available to all classes.

AMT Automag III

The AMT Automag III was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) and is unlocked at rank 109. Chambered in .30 Carbine, it has a very high base damage (68 at point blank) and good torso/headshot multiplier at the cost of a low magazine capacity (8+1) and very high recoil. The Automag III features two unique modifications, those being a .45 Winchester Magnum conversion and .50 Action Express conversion, which convert the pistol into the Automag IV and Automag V respectively.

AMT Automag IV

Equipping the ".45 WinMag" ammo conversion mod for the Automag III transforms it into the AMT Automag IV. This greatly increases its headshot multiplier, range and the maximum total ammo the player can carry, but reduces its general damage and firerate.

AMT Automag IV - .45 Win Mag.
Load your Automag with .45 Winchester Magnum. This makes your Automag III into the .45 caliber Automag IV. A more traditionally performing handgun cartridge with a lot of power still by comparison.

AMT Automag V

Equipping the ".50 AE" ammo conversion mod for the Automag III transforms it into the AMT Automag V. This vastly increases its damage, allowing for a one-shot kill to the body at close range. The Automag V's immense firepower is offset by its reduced magazine capacity of just 5 rounds, however, and its heavy recoil makes quick follow-up shots very difficult (not that one is needed, if you're using it correctly).

AMT Automag V - .50 AE.
Load your Automag with .50 Action Express. This makes your Automag III into the .50 caliber Automag V. There were only 3000 of these models produced using a 5-round magazine. Featuring stopping power similar to other .50 caliber handguns.

AMT Javelina Longslide

The AMT Javelina Longslide, a variant of the 1911-pattern AMT Hardballer chambered in 10mm Auto and with an extended barrel, was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) and is unlocked at rank 84. The pistol is known as the "Hardballer" in-game and is capable of dealing above-average damage per shot, with its main strength being its ability to three-shot an enemy player to any part of the body at any range. This long-ranged power is counterbalanced by a low magazine size of only 8+1 rounds, mediocre close-range performance, and somewhat high vertical recoil. The Javelina Longslide has access to the "Short Barrel" mod, which shortens the handgun's barrel and slide to that of a standard 1911, and a US Marine Corps. folding shoulder stock. The Javelina is also unique in that it is the only firearm in the game to lack a kill requirement for the fictional "AMT Terminator" optic, which, along with the weapon's in-game description, is an obvious reference to 1984's The Terminator.

AMT Javelina Longslide - 10mm Auto
Strong ranged performance at the cost of somewhat high recoil - It may not be a phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range, but this pistol still packs quite a lot of punch with every shot.

Arsenal Firearms AF2011-A1

The Arsenal Firearms AF2011-A1 was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) and is unlocked at rank 201. Holding the (dubious) honor of being the secondary weapon with the highest unlock rank in the game, the AF2011-A1 was the first double-barreled non-shotgun firearm added to Phantom Forces. It features very high damage at close range (due to it firing two .45 ACP rounds per trigger-pull), high recoil, a low magazine size, and a long reload. Unique modifications for the AF2011-A1 include a Monarch Arms "Rifle-ette" stock and a "Double Dart" conversion which turns it into a dart gun like the OSS "Bigot" M1911 mentioned below.

Arsenal Firearms AF2011-A1 - .45 ACP
A double barrel design based off the M1911. Features two of... well, everything! Features great damage in close range as you are firing two rounds at once but suffers range performance due to recoil and a slow reload.

AWS 1911

The AWS 1911 was added on Christmas 2018 as part of update 4.0.0 (2018 Winter Update 1) as the "MP1911" and is unlocked at rank 106. The version depicted in-game is select-fire and feeds from double-stack magazines, meaning that it is based on the later "AWS Model-2" prototypes. It comes pre-equipped with the shoulder stock from the Colt 1911 machine pistol prototype. The AWS 1911 is classified as a machine pistol and fires .45 ACP at an astounding 1000 RPM in full-auto, offering a potent close-range self-defense tool for a player in a pinch, featuring high damage and controllable recoil due to its foregrip and stock. Its 15-round magazine, however, is one of the smallest in its class. It can be modified to remove its pre-fitted stock and shorten the barrel, which increases the weapon's responsiveness in CQC at the expense of worse recoil and range. The AWS 1911 also features a 9x19mm conversion which increases its magazine size (20 > 15 rounds) and firerate (1300 > 1000 RPM) while decreasing its damage.

AWS 1911 - .38 Super

Beretta 93R

A Beretta 93R with wood grips was added during the game's Alpha and is unlocked at rank 26. It feeds from a 20 round magazine, is classified as a machine pistol, and is the only secondary weapon in the game to feature a burst-fire. The 93R is capable of killing a full-health player with one three-round burst at close range, but its high vertical recoil can make the weapon hard to use effectively beyond close range. The machine pistol can also be fired sem-automatically, which can also be useful when single, more accurate shots are desired. The Beretta 93R's only unique modification is a recoil-decreasing shoulder stock known as the "Raffica Stock".

Beretta M9

A Beretta M9 with brown StyLiS-branded grips was added during the game's Alpha and is one of the two sidearms unlocked by default. The M9 is a "jack-of-all-trades" pistol that is exceptionally average in almost every characteristic. It can be fitted with an extended 20-round magazine, an extended barrel/slide, and the 93R's "Raffica Stock" in addition to the standard suite of weapon attachments. The Beretta M9 features a unique texture, name, and viewmodel when the "Osprey Suppressor" is equipped, which is a reference to the "Luison" pistol from Rainbow Six Siege.

Colt M1911A1

A two-toned Colt M1911A1 was added during the game's Alpha and is unlocked at rank 8. The pistol is seemingly a custom model as it has an 8-round magazine, wooden grips embossed with a golden StyLiS logo, full-length guide rod, a M1911-style main spring housing, and an oversized hammer. The M1911A1 is accurate, quick to reload, and has impressive stopping power, making it a deadly sidearm at any range. At the same time, the classic handgun's jumpy recoil, low muzzle velocity, and low magazine size heavily discourage firing too quickly. The M1911A1 can be equipped with a folding shoulder stock to aid in recoil management and has access to a unique cosmetic "Engravings" attachment.

Nickel-plated M1911A1 with brown plastic grips - .45 ACP

M1911 .22 LR

Equipping the M1911A1 with the "Ratshot" ammo conversion transforms it into the "M1911 .22LR". This turns the weapon into a pseudo-shotgun, allowing it to fire four extremely weak pellets up to 10 times before reloading. A joke attachment first and foremost, Ratshot has some dubious utility in point-blank engagements as it is technically capable of a one-hit kill if all four pellets score a headshot (4 pellets x 9 damage x 3.0 headshot multiplier = 108 damage), but the shotgun-pistol's somewhat wide spread, low pellet count, and miserable damage to the body add up to a weapon that is a straight downgrade in almost any situation compared to the .45 ACP M1911A1.

OSS "Bigot" M1911A1

Equipping the "Dart" ammo conversion transforms the weapon into the experimental clandestine OSS "Bigot" M1911. A high-risk, high-reward weapon, the "Bigot" launches a large, slow dart projectile that deals heavy damage to the body and kills instantly to the head at any range. It is incapable of scoring a one-shot against a full-health opponent without a headshot, however, so the "Bigot" is best used as an instant, silent eliminator of distracted/stationary enemies (provided one becomes familiar with its arcing trajectory) or as a finisher against opponents that are already injured.

Colt M45A1

The Colt M45A1 CQBP was added in January 2018 as part of update 3.5.1 and is unlocked at rank 34. Before update 5.7.0, the weapon lacked the distinctive grip panels, tan finish, and ambidextrous grip safety of the M45A1, which made it a Colt Rail Gun. It has a threaded barrel, feeds from a 10-round extended magazine in its default configuration, and is otherwise similar performance-wise to the M1911A1. The M45A1 features a few unique mods, including a 15-round extended magazine, a generic polymer shoulder stock, and the same "Dart" conversion as the M1911A1.

FN Five-seveN

An FN Five-seveN Mk2 with a flat dark earth (FDE) frame was added in May 2019 as part of update 4.4.0 and is unlocked at rank 57 (go figure). The Five-seveN has a lot of positive qualities, including incredibly good long-range performance, low recoil, very high penetration, and the highest magazine size in-class (20 rounds). Unfortunately, the Five-seveN deals relatively low damage per shot and has a mediocre headshot multiplier, meaning that anywhere from 3 to 5 shots are required to eliminate a full-health opponent, which can be a death sentence in a hectic CQC battle. Its only unique modification is an extended 30-round magazine, which further increases the pistol's already impressive ammunition capacity at the expense of total rounds carried and reload speed.

FN Five-seveN Mark 2 FDE - 5.7x28mm

Glock 17

A 3rd Generation Glock 17 with a tan frame was added during the game's Alpha and is one of the two sidearms unlocked by default. Compared to the M9, the Glock 17 has a larger magazine size (17 rounds) and is more controllable but has worse ranged performance. The Glock 17 can equip a FAB Defense GLR-440 stock, 33-round extended magazine, "Long Barrel" (which transforms the pistol into the Glock 17L), and a "G Switch" attachment that converts it to full auto but dumps the entire magazine when firing.

Glock 17L

Equipping the "Long Barrel" attachment on the Glock 17 transforms it into the Glock 17L. This improves the pistol's ranged performance and muzzle velocity while increasing the time required to aim down sights.

Glock 18C

A 4th Generation Glock 18C was added during the game's Alpha and is unlocked at rank 17. It has low vertical recoil (for a machine pistol) and a very high rate of fire, which allows the Glock 18C to be used to great effect in close-quarters. It has some of the worst damage falloff in the game, however, so the 18C is best used only at an arm's length. The Glock 18C can be modified to add a 33-round extended magazine, extended slide/barrel, and an FAB Defense Cobra folding stock, which can be used either unfolded or folded (as an ersatz foregrip). Prior to update 5.7.0, it lacked a fire selector, which made it a Glock 17C.

"G18L"

Equipping the Glock 18C with the "Long Barrel" attachment transforms it into the fictional "G18L". A longslide version of the Glock 18C, the cuts in the top of the slide have been extended and the handgun appears similar to other (real) longslide Glocks, such as the Glock 40, albeit with a fire selector.

Glock 21

A Glock 21 was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 and is unlocked at rank 21. It features an OD green frame and a threaded barrel. The Glock 21, alongside the many other Glock-series pistols featured in Phantom Forces, was once available only through an ammunition conversion for the Glock 17. With 2022's "Return to Spring" update, however, the great Glock split transformed these conversions into their own unique pistols. Firing .45 ACP, the Glock 21 deals high close-range damage and features an impressive 13-round magazine. It deals less damage than other .45 handguns, however, and is not very effective at range. It can be modified to add a 26-round extended magazine, a FAB Defense GLR-440 Tactical Stock and a G Switch.

"G21L"

Equipping the Glock 21 with the "Long Barrel" attachment transforms it into the fictional "G21L". The pistol's closest real counterpart is the Glock 41, which is also a longslide (albeit not as long as the 21L) Glock chambered in .45 ACP.

Glock 21 (with .50 GI conversion)

A Glock 21 with an aftermarket .50 GI conversion kit was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 and is unlocked at rank 50. Designated as the "G50" in-game, this pistol has the lowest capacity of the Glock series (8+1 rounds) but the highest damage per shot and a very healthy x2.0 headshot multiplier. Although unable to score a one shot kill (1SK) against a full health player, the G50 maintains a 2SK to the body or head at close range, making it the perfect sidearm for a player with a traditionally long-range primary weapon such as a sniper rifle or DMR.

It can be modified to add an FAB Defense Cobra folding stock and an extended "Heavy Barrel", which changes the pistol's name to "G50L", a fictional designation.

Glock 23

A Glock 23 with an FDE frame and threaded barrel was added April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) and is unlocked at rank 23. Chambered in .40 S&W, the Glock 23 is a servicable all-rounder sidearm. It can deal decent damage at range or up close, and its 13-round magazine somewhat compensates for missed shots. A "jack-of-all-trades, master of none" pistol, the Glock 23 can do well in any situation but loses out to more specialized secondaries in specific areas. It can be fitted with a 22-round extended magazine, FAB Defense GLR-440 Tactical Stock, a G Switch and aftermarket extended barrel (which inexplicably changes the weapon's name to "G23L").

Glock 40

A Glock 40 was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) and is unlocked at rank 40. It is much more long-range focused than the other Glock pistols, with a high headshot multiplier, punchy cartridge, and very high muzzle velocity. Although it can dish out large amounts of damage in close-quarters, the Glock 40's somewhat high recoil and below-average firerate make it slightly harder to manage compared to other handguns. The Glock 40 can be modified to add a FAB Defense GLR-440 Tactical Stock, G Switch and a 30-round extended magazine. It also has access to the "Short Barrel" attachment, which transforms the pistol into the Glock 20.

Glock 20

A Glock 20 can be created by equipping the "Short Barrel" attachment on the Glock 40. It has a dark grey frame. The Glock 20 is notable for having one of the fastest walkspeeds in the game, allowing a player wielding the sidearm to move very quickly. This is most likely an oversight caused by the weight reduction given by the "Short Barrel" attachment (which is typically only available for long-barreled primary weapons, where the weight reduction is less radical).

Guncrafter Industries Model 1

The Guncrafter Industries Model 1 was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) and is unlocked at rank 73. As one could expect from this souped-up 1911 derivative, the "GI M1" (as it is known in-game) hits extremely hard in close quarters but has high vertical recoil and poor ranged performance. Unique modifications for the Model 1 include a longslide conversion (which improves the handgun's poor ranged performance) and a recoil-reducing Sarco. Inc lightweight stock.

IMI/Magnum Research Desert Eagle L5

A Desert Eagle L5 chambered in .44 Magnum was added during the game's Alpha and is unlocked at rank 18. The L5 is a powerful magnum pistol and one of the earliest available sidearms that can kill a player with a single headshot at close range. Its in-game role can be compared to that of revolvers, with the Desert Eagle having a superior capacity (8+1 rounds) and firerate (400 RPM) than most. The L5 has very high recoil and is much less effective than most revolvers at range, however, with it becoming unable to 1-shot-kill to the head at 50 'studs' (approx. 46 ft). The Desert Eagle L5 can equip a unique "Extended Barrel" mod, which increases its damage at range at the expense of the time required to aim-down-sights. It can also equip either a .44 Special or .357 Magnum conversion, the former decreasing recoil while lowering the damage dealt at range, and the latter increasing the handgun's controllability, reload speed, and magazine size while decreasing overall damage. Some of its reload sound effects are borrowed from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

A modern version of the iconic Israeli-American pistol. This specific model has been lightened as well as upgraded with dual Picatinny rails and a much-needed muzzle brake. Very high damage with the capacity to instantly kill to the head up close, with rough recoil.

IMI/Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark XIX

The Desert Eagle Mark XIX chambered in .50 AE was added in December 2019 as part of update 4.11.0 (Israeli Weapons) and is unlocked at rank 102. Although the version depicted in-game is an older production model with a chromed finish and lacking rails on the barrel, it features the throwback "teardrop" safety design of the newer production models. The weapon's grips have been stamped with the StyLiS Studios logo. The Desert Eagle Mark XIX is, not unexpectedly, a weapon of extremes. It can score a one-shot kill to the body at an impressive range, but its low capacity (7+1), dismal reserve ammunition (21 rounds), lethargic firerate (200 RPM), horrible muzzle velocity, and monstrous recoil leave a lot to be desired. Overall, the one and only Desert Eagle Mark XIX is best suited as a "second primary" of sorts rather than a more traditional all-rounder backup pistol. The Mark XIX can be modified to add a 10" extended barrel and converted to fire (exceedingly rare) .440 Cor-Bon ammunition.

Finally, a gun that lets you make a statement. This semi-automatic hand cannon is chambered in .50 Action Express. It'll probably pulverize your wrists with its recoil, but hey, you can't argue with the stopping power. And you've got the king of mayhem...

Following this, the loaded magazine is pulled out (as with the Desert Eagle L5), but the player lets it drop.
A new magazine is then inserted...

Keeping the property values low. The Mark XIX is (as of writing) one of the few weapons to feature an experimental dual recoil scheme, in which the game applies both "body" recoil (which moves the point of aim) and "head" recoil (which simply shakes the player's camera around, leaving the point of aim unaffected) when firing. The player's crazily tilted view in this screenshot is caused by a hefty portion of the latter.
Seven wrist-agonizing shots later and the pistol's ready to be reloaded. The Mark XIX shares reloading animations with the L5.

Desert Eagle Police Carbine

Equipping the Desert Eagle Mark XIX with the "Police Barrel" and "Police Stock" mods transforms the magnum handgun into the rare Desert Eagle Police Carbine. The real Police Carbine was only available in the Mark I model of the Desert Eagle, making its appearance here in .50 AE a strictly "what-if" affair.

Intratec TEC-DC9

The Intratec TEC-DC9 appears both as the fully-automatic "TEC-9", which was added during the game's Alpha, and as the semi-auto only "KG-99", which was added in July 2021 as part of update 5.6.0 (Independence Update 2021). Both weapons are unlocked at rank 50. They can be distinguished from the actual TEC-9 and KG-99 due to their lack of sling mounts on the side of the barrel shroud and receiver.

The "TEC-9" holds the honor of having the highest sustained firerate in the game, spitting an astounding 1500 rounds per minute in full-auto only. This offsets its low base damage, allowing the machine pistol to rack up kills very quickly in close-quarters. Unsurprisingly, the "TEC-9" has very high recoil, with the weapon's point of aim "walking" uncontrollably when firing. It can be fitted with an extended barrel/barrel shroud or the short barrel of the TEC-9 Mini, a 32-round extended magazine, and the wire stock from the Interdynamic KG-9.

"KG-99"

The "KG-99" is a semi-automatic version of the "TEC-9". Although considered a separate weapon from the TEC-9, the model is identical, except for using a different texture and the TEC-9 Mini "Short Barrel" being default. It deals more damage than its full-auto brother to balance the fact that it is semi-automatic only. The "KG-99" is accurate, fast-firing, and high-capacity, although it is held back by its abnormally low headshot multiplier. Like the "TEC-9", it can be fitted with a "Long Barrel" mod (which reattaches the regular-length DC9 barrel), a 32-round extended magazine, and the KG-9's stock.

LAR Grizzly Mark V

The LAR Grizzly Mark V Pistol in .50 AE was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) and is unlocked at rank 144. Known as the "Grizzly", this oversized 1911-pattern handcannon is similar to the Desert Eagle Mark XIX in both form and function, with the former possessing more reserve ammunition (28 vs. 21 rounds) and a higher firerate (350 RPM vs. 200 RPM) at the cost of worse mid-range damage. The Grizzly's three-hexagon "LAR" slide marking has been replaced by a three-tiled StyLiS Studios marking, presumably for copyright reasons. The LAR Grizzly Mark V's only unique modification is a so-called heavy barrel, which attaches the barrel of the Grizzly Mark I Long Slide to the weapon; this would not work in real life, as one could not simply fit the barrel and slide of the .45 Winchester Magnum Grizzly Mark I to the frame of a .50 Action Express Mark V without... serious repercussions.

Laugo Alien

The Laugo Alien was added in May 2022 as part of update 5.7.3 (May Update) and is unlocked at rank 179. As with most other weapons (except the Glock-series pistols, for some reason), the handgun's markings have been genericized, with "RIPLEY" supplanting the "ALIEN" writing on the left side of the slide. This, alongside the weapon's unlock rank, are a clear reference to 1979's Alien. As with other competition or target-shooting weapons in Phantom Forces, the Alien rewards well-aimed shots with a very high headshot multiplier, great ballistics, and strong close-range performance. It lags behind other sidearms, however, with its sharp damage drop-off and low minimum damage. It features a unique "Olympic Target Sight" low-magnification optic as a free modification.

Makarov PB

The Makarov PB was added in July 2021 as part of update 5.6.0 (Independence Update 2021) and is unlocked at rank 91. The PB (or "Izhevsk PB", as it is known in-game) is the first and, at the time of writing, only integrally-suppressed pistol in Phantom Forces. The PB's safety is always in the "safe" position, which should prevent the weapon from firing; however, this is not the case. It feeds from an 8-round magazine, but 12-round extended and 84-round drum magazines (underloaded to 80 rounds) are also available. The PB is somewhat unique as it deals very high damage (to the point that it kills a full-health enemy with a single headshot) up to 20 studs (~18 feet) but has very sharp damage drop-off, with the pistol dealing only 40% of its base damage after 50 studs (~46 feet). This makes it a very effective backup weapon in close-quarters.

Interestingly, the PB, although being integrally suppressed, has a higher muzzle velocity compared to its unsuppressed counterpart (1800 studs/s vs 1700 studs/s). This actually (sort of) makes sense, since in real life, some suppressors act like longer barrels if the bullet doesn’t come into contact with the suppressor, while suppressors that make contact with a bullet do reduce bullet speed.

Makarov PM

The Makarov PM was added in July 2021 as part of update 5.6.0 (Independence Update 2021) and is unlocked at rank 92. The in-game weapon has a slightly longer barrel than standard military-issue Makarov pistols, a feature seen on Canadian import models of the PM and PMM. Like the its suppressed brother, the PM feeds from an 8-round magazine and can use either aftermarket 12-round extended or 84-round (underfilled to 80 rounds in-game) drum magazines. The PM also features an obnoxiously long "Extended Barrel" modification, which roughly doubles the pistol's barrel length. In-game, the Makarov is a very agile pistol with an emphasis on CQC, featuring very little recoil, a fast aim-down-sights time, and a quick reload. Its largest weakness is its low magazine size, however, and it deals subpar damage at range.

MBA Gyrojet Pistol Mark I

The MBA Gyrojet Mark I rocket pistol was added in July 2023 as part of update 8.0.4 (Independence Day update) and is unlocked at rank 122. Although its projectiles do not gain speed as they fly, puttering along at a constant, apathetic 1000 studs/sec (919 ft/sec), they do gain damage, dealing only 30 damage at 10 studs (9 ft) before eventually reaching a respectable 48 damage at 175 studs (161 ft). The Gyrojet pistol has a high base torso and headshot multiplier as well, scoring a one-shot headshot at any range and a one-shot bodyshot towards the end of its damage curve. It can be frustrating to use the Gyrojet in its intended long-range role, however, as the rockets deviate slightly from where the player is aiming. The Gyrojet Mark I features a number of unique modifications, which is somewhat unsurprising considering the weapon's unique nature. These include both a snubnose and extended barrel as well as a fictional full-auto modification.

Gyrojet Pistol Mark 1 Model B - 13mm
A failed 'pistol' from the 1960s produced by MBA. Due to how the rockets in this weapon function, the damage model is reversed, doing more damage across longer ranges. The system, quite literally, failed for being light years ahead of its time.

They are more accurate and fly faster than the Mark I's 13mm rockets but deal less damage.

RARAN 1130

The one-off RARAN 1130 was added in July 2021 as part of update 5.6.0 (Independence Update 2021) and is unlocked at rank 126. The curious machine pistol, which the loadout menu classifies as a PDW, is designated in-game as the "RAMA 1130", a misnomer derived from a mistranslation of the Russian academy where the weapon was designed. The RARAN 1130 feeds from 84-round drum magazines (underloaded to 80 rounds in-game) and incorrectly has a slightly longer barrel than the real weapon, a feature seen on Canadian import Makarov PMs. Despite the fact that it fires 9x18mm Makarov at 950 RPM from a rather short barrel, the RARAN has low recoil and decent damage range but low overall damage per shot. Unique modifications for the RARAN include an impossibly long barrel (a modification it shares with the Makarov PM) and a .380 ACP conversion, which increases the pistol's damage but reduces the magazine capacity to a paltry 12 rounds.

Serbu GB-22

The Serbu GB-22 was added in January 2021 as part of update 5.5.0 (New Years Update 2021) and is unlocked at rank 99. The GB-22 depicted in-game is slightly larger than the real weapon, fires from an open bolt and, true to its nature as a homemade weapon, features a crude wire-wrapped grip and custom extended barrel. The GB-22, although nowhere near as infamous as the game's other .22-caliber pistol, is mostly a joke weapon, as it deals very low damage and has nigh-unusable iron sights. Despite this, it instantly kills to the head at any range and possesses above average ballistics, making the single-shot pistol an extremely risky yet powerful weapon.

The GB-22's unique modifications include a "Cut-down Barrel" and lengthened "Sporting Barrel" as well as three ammunition conversions. The first, 10mm Auto, substantially increases the pistol's muzzle velocity and torso damage while lowering the rate of fire, while the second, .50 AE, puts the "blaster" in "ghetto blaster" by turning the GB-22 into a potent single-shot handcannon. The final conversion is 12 gauge "minishells", which turns the pistol into a powerful breech-loading shotgun capable of launching 9 pellets of buckshot per trigger pull. None of these conversions, however, change the physical model of the cartridge loaded into the weapon.

SIG-Sauer P320-M17

A SIG-Sauer P320-M17 (identifiable as such due to the rear sight) was added in July 2023 as part of update 8.0.4 (Independence Day update) and is unlocked at rank 13, called the "M17". As with other military-issue pistols, the M17 is an all-rounder. It has good accuracy, low recoil, and moderate damage, allowing it to function well in close-quarters or at range. It has a 17-round magazine by default, but an extended 21-round magazine is available as a unique attachment.

Springfield Armory M1911-A2 SASS

The Springfield Armory M1911-A2 SASS was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) and is unlocked at rank 132. Classified as an "Other" secondary weapon and known as the "SASS 308" in-game, it is chambered in .308 Winchester and is fitted with a 14.9" barrel by default. Unique modifications for the single-shot pistol include a .358 Winchester conversion and a shortened 10.75" barrel. The M1911-A2 SASS is a powerful "pocket sniper", with great ballistics and high damage. Of course, this comes at the cost of frequent, lengthy reloads.

STI DVC Tactical 2011

The STI DVC Tactical 2011 was added in April 2022 as part of update 5.7.0 (Return to Spring Update) is unlocked at rank 150. It is known as the "M2011" in-game and features a garish color scheme and many custom parts, including what appears to be a titanium nitride-coated barrel and a blue-finished slide-mounted charging handle. Firing 9x19mm, the 2011 is a versatile handgun that can perform well at both long range, thanks to its above-average headshot multiplier, and when up close, due to its spam-friendly 20-round magazine. However, it deals below average damage to the torso and limbs and has somewhat rapid damage falloff, which both can limit its effectiveness when poorly-aimed. The DVC Tactical 2011 can be modified to add an extended barrel and a Monarch Arms "Rifle-ette" stock, which can also be fitted to the AF2011-A1.

STI DVC Tactical 2011 - .45 ACP
A colourful race gun chambered in 9x19mm with a large double-stack magazine. While the damage up front is poor compared to other pistols, it packs a very high headshot multiplier and the accuracy to make use of it.

USFA ZiP .22

The USFA ZiP .22 was added in October 2017 as part of update 3.1.0 (Halloween 2017 Update) and is unlocked at rank 61. Designated as the "ZIP 22", it is a joke weapon, dealing extremely poor damage and feeding from a tiny 10-round Ruger 10/22 box magazine. The BattleZiP Survival SBR stock is automatically fitted to the pistol whenever an optic is attached, but it provides no stability benefits (as it exists only to provide a believable mounting point for attachments). In addition, the ZiP .22 can use 50-round ProMag Ruger 10/22 drum magazines (referred to as "Pro Mags" in-game), which provide a welcome increase in magazine size, and ".22 Ratshot" ammunition, which transforms the pistol into a compact "shotgun" of questionable utility.

USFA ZiP .22 with magazine removed - .22 LR
A modern American 'pistol' with questionable quality. Abysmal damage, but with deep reserves and a high headshot multiplier. A weapon so bad it killed a million dollar company.

Walther GSP Expert

The Walther GSP Expert was added in June 2021 as part of update 5.6.3 (Pacific Cold Front Update Part 1) and is unlocked at rank 131. Despite being chambered in .22 LR, it incorrectly has the larger charging handle of the .32 S&W Long version of the GSP (also sometimes known as the GSP-C, for 'centerfire'). The GSP performs similarly to a magazine-fed version of the Serbu GB-22, providing a one-shot kill on headshot at the cost of very poor bodyshot damage. The GSP's 5-round magazine offers much more flexibility against multiple targets (or when one misses a shot or two) than the GB-22, but the GSP can only score a 1SK to the head up to 65 studs (60 feet) while the GB-22 can do it at any range. A number of unique modifications are available for the GSP Expert, including a barrel weight, which decreases felt recoil at the expense of walkspeed, a .32 Smith & Wesson Long conversion which doubles ammo capacity and provides more conventional pistol performance, and a .22 Ratshot conversion.

Walther GSP Expert - .32 S&W
A single-action, precision targetshooting pistol made in Germany. It was introduced on the world market in 1968 and was chambered for .22 Long Rifle.

Revolvers

Revolvers make up their own category of secondary weapons in Phantom Forces and are available to all classes. Most revolvers have access to a "speedloader" modification, which speeds up reload times when reloading from an empty cylinder at the cost of slowing down partial reloads.

Mateba Model 6 Unica

The Mateba Model 6 Unica was added in September 2018 as part of update 3.13.0 and is unlocked at rank 29. Appearing as the "Mateba 6", it is chambered in .44 Magnum and equipped with a 5" barrel. The Model 6 Unica has the joint highest firerate (600 RPM) but shortest effective range in-class, which allows for very quick follow-up shots, especially in close-quarters. Unique modifications for this revolver include a 3" "Snubnose" barrel, an 8" "Cowboy" barrel, and .454 Casull ammunition which greatly increases damage and recoil but reduces firerate and range.

Mateba Model 6 Unica, 5" barrel - .357 Magnum
An Italian semi-automatic revolver. High close-in damage with better ranged performance, fast drop-off, fast rate of fire and unusual recoil.
The Model 6 Unica with the "Snubnose" attachment equipped, which gives the revolver a puny 3" barrel. More agile, but less effective at range.
The Model 6 Unica with the 8" "Cowboy Barrel" modification attached. More damage at range, worse handling.
Holding the "Mateba 6" on the vertigo-inducing Elevation map.
Inspecting the left side of the Italian semi-automatic revolver.
No, that wasn't a typo. The Model 6 Unica's upper frame actually recoils slightly after firing, cocking the hammer and indexing the cylinder. The result? Semi-automatic fire!
Aiming down the Unica's simple glow sights.
Firing the revolver. Note that the muzzle flash appears near the bottom of the weapon's frame, which is actually not an error; to reduce muzzle climb, the Mateba Model 6 fires from the bottom chamber in the cylinder as opposed to the top cylinder like most other revolvers.

Equipping the "Speedloader" attachment causes the player to actually use a speedloader when reloading the Mateba, although the animation is otherwise unchanged.
Closing the cylinder with a snap of the wrist. Considering the rarity (and price) of Mateba revolvers, this is a dubious decision at best.

MP-412 REX

The MP-412 REX was added during the game's Alpha and is unlocked at rank 4. The REX features a 6" barrel in its default configuration, which is most likely a reference to the revolver's depiction in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and like other revolvers it incorrectly has the ability to mount a flash hider attachment, which would not work in real life due to the cylinder gap. The MP-412 REX performs similarly to the Unica, serving as a "jack-of-all-trades" revolver with a high firerate and low minimum range. The REX has a few unique modifications, including a shoulder stock, "Snubnose", "Short", "Cowboy", "Carbine", and "Integral" barrels, the latter functioning as an integral suppressor (which apparently functions by greatly reducing tolerances and the cylinder gap) and renaming the gun to "Monarch".

MP-412 REX - .357 Magnum
A break-open revolver prototype from Russia intended for export. High close-in damage and headshot multiplier with low ranged damage and a fast rate of fire.

Inserting an imaginary speedloader of .357 Magnum.
When the "Speedloader" attachment is equipped, the player will utilize speedloaders, which (despite leaving the actual animation unchanged) drastically speed up reloading when all six rounds in the cylinder have been fired.

Remington 1858 New Army

The Remington 1858 New Army was added in January 2018 as part of update 3.4.0 and is unlocked at rank 58. It has a brass frame and is reloaded by swapping cylinders, giving the New Army a surprisingly fast reload (for a revolver). The 1858 New Army can neutralize an enemy with a single headshot out to a surprisingly long range and has rather controllable recoil, but it also has lots of drawbacks. These include a slow firerate, low muzzle velocity, and hard-to-use iron sights. The 1858 New Army can be modified to use either an extremely short 3" barrel or an extended 12" barrel. It also features a ".36 Caliber" conversion, which transforms the pistol into the Remington 1858 Navy, and "Snakeshot" ammunition, which allows the 1858 to function as a compact scattergun.

Remington 1858 New Army with 12" barrel - .44 ball
The 1858 New Army with an extremely long 12" barrel. Better damage at range and improved muzzle velocity but worse handling.

One-handing the 1858 while aiming down its iron sights. This was, after all, the style of the time.
The 1858's alternate aim mode is, of course, a fan-fire. This increases its firerate from an OK 190 RPM to an impressive 350 RPM.
Pulling back on the New Army's hammer after firing a shot. It is done, in an incredible feat of dexterity, with one hand, although it's hard to judge seeing as the player lacks thumbs.
Reloading the 1858 New Army is a multi-step process, although it is nowhere near as complex as inserting individual powder charges, projectiles, and percussion caps. To begin, the player cranks down on the reloading lever.
This allows them to flick away the empty cylinder.
A new (full) cylinder is then inserted...
...and the reloading lever is returned to its rightful home. This is followed by a quick pull of the hammer. Notably absent is any interaction with the cylinder axis pin; on the real revolver, this has to be pulled forward to allow removal of the cylinder (and pushed back in to lock a new one in place).

Remington 1858 Navy

Equipping the 1858 New Army with the ".36 Caliber" ammunition conversion transforms it into the Remington 1858 Navy. This improves its firerate and muzzle velocity but reduces its damage.

Ruger Redhawk

The Ruger Redhawk was added in June 2019 as part of update 4.5b and is unlocked at rank 83. Firing .44 Magnum, the Redhawk deals high damage per shot (especially on headshot) but has high recoil, incentivizing single, accurate shots. The Redhawk has several unique modifications. Two of these modify the revolver's barrel, those being a 2.7" "snubnose" barrel and a very long "cowboy barrel" modeled after the Smith & Wesson Model 629 Stealth Hunter's barrel. The Redhawk also has access to the so-called KAC shoulder stock, which is taken from the game's Knight's Armament Revolver Rifle model (which is itself based on an airsoft reimagining of the revolver carbine with custom wooden furniture), and a .45 Long Colt conversion, which vastly increases the revolver's damage at the cost of restricting it to single-action only.

Putting a .44 caliber hole in the concrete across the way with the Redhawk.
After firing six shots (or was it five?) the Redhawk has to be reloaded, no surprises there. This begins with the player grabbing the cylinder to swing it out. The animation does not appear to show the player operating the cylinder release, meaning that this is done with pure brute strength (and most likely breaks the revolver).
Smacking the ejector to free the spent casings.
Inserting a not-speedloader of fresh rounds.
The speedloader reappears, courtesy of the "Speedloader" modification.
Flicking the cylinder closed.
With the .45 Long Colt conversion equipped, the Redhawk must be manually re-cocked after every shot. As with the 1858 New Army, the animation is somewhat scuffed, although this can be excused by the player's lack of thumbs.

"Toy Gun"

The Redhawk model is also the basis for the "Toy Gun", a melee weapon that can be obtained by rolling a Legendary on a case. Although a melee weapon, it can fire darts, which are fired after swinging the weapon to attack, inspecting it, or spotting enemies with it; these do not interact with the world, passing through walls, dealing no damage to players, and are deleted shortly after leaving the barrel. The weapon can fire an infinite number of darts. Aside from the texture, the only difference the Toy Gun has from the regular Redhawk is the barrel. The design of the Toy Gun is more akin to a cap gun than a dart blaster, as it has no room for an air compressor or spring-loaded priming mechanism, and its barrel is completely solid; this is most likely the result of it being made out of the model for a real revolver.

Taurus Judge

The Taurus Judge was added in July 2019 as part of update 4.8.0 and is unlocked at rank 113. Firing .410 bore, the Judge is one of the few available shotgun secondary weapons in Phantom Forces (and the only true 'shotgun pistol', barring weapons such as the ZiP .22 or 1858 New Army that have shotgun-type ammunition conversions). It is a powerful backup weapon, dispersing 4 highly-damaging pellets per trigger-pull at a respectable 300 RPM. As one could expect, however, its poor damage at range and somewhat wide spread limit the Judge's effectiveness beyond close range.

As a shotgun, the Judge has access to flechette, birdshot, rubber pellets, and slug ammunition. It can also equip the "Taurus Stock" and "Taurus Barrel" mods, which are the shoulder stock and extended barrel/handguard of the Rossi Circuit Judge respectively, albeit made of a black polymer instead of carved wood. This means that the Rossi Circuit Judge technically appears 3 different times in Phantom Forces: once by modifying the Judge, once by modifying the Raging Judge (which has access to the same pair of modifications), and once as a standalone primary weapon, the "Jury", which can be found in the Rifles & Carbines section of the page.

Taurus Judge - .45 Long Colt/.410 Bore
A compact Brazilian revolver firing .410 shotshells. High per-pellet damage with moderate spread and fast fire rate.
Rossi Circuit Judge - .410 Bore/.45 Colt
The Judge, now appearing in a much less compact form. It appears extremely similar to the reference image, except with polymer furniture instead of wood.
The player finds themselves armed with the Judge at the top of a very tall building.
Inspecting the left side of the almost cartoonishly-proportioned revolver.
The right side.
Aiming the Judge towards the horizon. It (the handgun, not the horizon) features an unusual purple front post, for no other reason than that it looks cool.
Swinging the cylinder of the Judge out for reloading. Notably, the player does not appear to operate the cylinder release, which is incorrect.
An instant later, all 5 of the revolver's shotgun shells (fired or unfired) mysteriously vanish! With .410 prices being what they are, this is simply unacceptable.
Reloading the Judge is done by punching the now-empty cylinder repeatedly, with the animation implying that the player is inserting individual shells into the weapon. However, the player seems to insert all of the shells into the same chamber, which, safe to say, is not how revolvers work.
After having been suitably abused, the Judge relents, and 5 new .410 bore shells magically reappear in their proper places. Wonderful.
Not content to have left the revolver with just a black eye, the player gives the Judge some severe whiplash by flicking the its cylinder back into place.
Using the "Speedloader" modification fixes many of the Judge's reloading flaws. For example, the player actually operates the ejector and visibly inserts all 5 shells into the cylinder.
The freshly-sat shells can be seen in the cylinder when the player removes the empty speedloader.

Taurus Raging Judge

The Taurus Raging Judge was added in June 2019 as part of update 4.8.0 and is unlocked at rank 137. It is known as the "Executioner", which is a reference to the Raging Judge XXVIII's appearance in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The "Executioner" moniker also works to complete the idiom "judge, jury, and executioner" alongside the standard Judge and the "Jury" (the Rossi Circuit Judge). The Raging Judge fires .454 Casull rounds and can equip the "Taurus Stock", "Taurus Barrel", and speedloader unique mods. Comparable to the Desert Eagle XIX, the Raging Judge is the most powerful (and sluggish) revolver available, offering a single-shot kill at an impressive range at the cost of heavy recoil, poor handling, and low reserve ammunition.

Taurus Raging Judge - .454 Casull
A full-size Brazilian revolver, loaded with .454 Casull for incredible stopping power. Massive damage up close with a high headshot multiplier, with harsh recoil and slow recovery.
Rossi Circuit Judge - .410 Bore/.45 Colt
The Raging Judge transformed into a powerful (if unwieldy) revolver carbine. Note that, although the Rossi Circuit Judge is incapable of chambering of .454 Casull rounds (having been based on the standard .45 LC/.410 bore Judge), fitting the stock and barrel of one to a Raging Judge is technically possible and should not, at least in theory, cause any significant issues.
First-person view of a player holding the Raging Judge.
Taking a look at the left side of the revolver.

Aiming the Raging Judge. The purple front post seen on the standard Judge has been swapped for a boring (but sensible) red.
The Raging Judge is reloaded the same way as its shorter brother, which is to say that the revolver's cylinder is throttled repeatedly.
Ta-da! Six rounds of .454 Casull reappear in the cylinder after the gun has received enough punishment.
Shoving an invisible speedloader of rounds (depicted incorrectly as shotgun shells) into the revolver. This animation is used when the player has the "Speedloader" modification unlocked, and it reloads the Raging Judge's entire cylinder at once in contrast to the default "one-at-a-time" method.
Flicking the revolver closed. This provides a good view of the Raging Judge's 6-round cylinder, a notable departure from the standard 5-shot Judge.

Submachine Guns

ASMI

The ASMI was added in May 2022 as part of update 5.7.3 and is unlocked at rank 97, marking the weapon's first known media appearance. The ASMI uses 33-round Glock magazines and is distinctive for being one of the few submachine guns to be classified as a secondary weapon, with the other being the PP-2000. Unlike other sidearms, it has access to most standard grip attachments (under the "Other" slot). It serves as a more versatile and controllable alternative to the game's machine pistols, although it has a slight bit of trouble scoring kills quickly.

ASMI - 9x19mm Parabellum
A Machine Pistol developed for the Indian Army, made with 3D printing technology as part of its construction. Possessing a relatively low rate of fire and low damage, however this is made up for it with a high magazine capacity and an above average headshot multiplier. Serving as a good jack-of-all-trades secondary.
The ASMI's only unique modification, "Retract Stock", does as it says on the tin.
The player, on the outskirts of the sandy Desert Storm map, holds the ASMI.
Taking a look at the left side of the modern Indian submachine gun...
...followed by the right.
Looking down the ASMI's default irons. With a top-mounted Picainny rail, however, the possibilities for customization are practically endless!
Reloading the ASMI is a somewhat cumbersome process, especially without a round in the chamber. It begins, not unlike the MP5, with the player locking the submachine gun's bolt to the rear.
The empty magazine is then removed...
...and a fresh magazine, of the 33-round Glock variety, is then inserted.
Finally, the bolt is pushed forwards. The taking of names can then continue as planned.

Coharie Arms MP-10

The Coharie Arms MP-10 was added in March 2016 as part of update 0.7.0 and is unlocked at rank 66. It has the ability to fire in semi-automatic or full-auto (at 850 RPM), which is incorrect, as the MP-10 was produced exclusively as a civilian carbine (and is therefore semi-auto only). The MP-10 (known in-game as the "MP10", not to be confused with the Heckler & Koch MP5/10) is the only weapon in Phantom Forces to feature an integral flashlight, although many weapons have access to an underbarrel flashlight as a free modification, making this less of a boon than it may seem. With high minimum damage, low damage falloff, and a high rate of fire, the MP-10 is an especially potent weapon at range, in contrast to most other submachine guns. It is let down, however, by its sluggish reload and poor maximum damage. Unique modifications for the weapon include a 16" barrel and a "Flashlight Off" attachment.

Colt MARS

The Colt MARS was added in December 2022 (replacing the Colt SMG's 5.56x30mm MARS attachment from earlier versions) as part of update 7.1.0 and is unlocked at rank 36. It has high armour penetration and muzzle velocity but suffers from high recoil and low range. It has access to a 9x30mm MARS conversion which improves close-quarters performance but worsens range and recoil even further, and reduces the magazine capacity to 28 rounds.

Colt MARS - 5.56x30mm MARS
Colt-designed PDW from 1997 based on the AR platform firing the unique 5.56x30 Mini Assault Rifle System (MARS) Cartridge. Higher RPM and penetration with lower damage, coupled with high multipliers.

Colt Model 633

The Colt Model 633 was added in July 2016 as part of update 0.13.6 and is unlocked at rank 49. Before the June 4th 2020 update, it was incorrectly called the "Colt SMG 635". The Model 633 has a high firerate (1000 RPM), decent magazine size (32 rounds), and a speedy reload, making it a powerful SMG for close-quarters combat. Its high vertical recoil, however, makes sustained fire from the Colt SMG hard to keep on target, especially at longer ranges. The Colt SMG 633's collapsible stock can be retracted or removed (to improve walkspeed) or replaced with an M16-style fixed stock.

Colt Model 633 - 9x19mm Parabellum

The Colt Model 635 as it appears in-game.

Colt Model 639

The "Burst Grouping" attachment transforms the weapon into the Colt Model 639, which fires in three-round bursts instead of fully-automatic. The player is able to equip the Model 633 with this modification (and therefore change its name to "Colt SMG 639") without also equipping the "Long Barrel" attachment, which is technically incorrect.

Colt Model 635 - 9x19mm Parabellum. The Model 639 is externally identical to the Model 635, bar the "Burst" setting instead of "Auto" on the fire selector.
The Colt Model 639 as it appears in-game, kind of. For the true 639 experience, the "Long Barrel" modification must also be used.

Daewoo K7

The Daewoo K7 was added in December 2020 as part of update 5.4.0 (Winter Update 2020) and is unlocked at rank 84. Known simply as the "K7", this SMG fires quickly (at 1100 RPM, to be exact), is integrally suppressed (although this limits its ability to use muzzle devices), and has the fastest reload speed in-class. The K7 lags behind in the damage department, however, and has the lowest muzzle velocity among all of the SMGs. It features one unique attachment, a 5.56x45mm conversion that essentially transforms the weapon into an integrally-suppressed Daewoo K1A rifle.

Daewoo K7 - 9x19mm Parabellum
A South Korean SMG variant stemming from the K1A rifle. It has fast handling, a high firerate, and is very stable, however this stability is a tradeoff for its poor range performance... What do you mean you want to use muzzle devices on it?

FN P90 TR

The FN P90 TR was added during the game's alpha (as the "P90") and is unlocked at rank 24. Its firing sound is taken from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and its reload sounds are from COD4 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Possessing a high rate of fire, impressive magazine capacity, and, most notably, very high penetration, the P90 is extremely effective at taking down enemies at close range, especially if they are utilizing cover. Unique modifications for the P90 include 30-round magazines, which increase walkspeed, handling, and reload speed, and the 16" barrel of the FN PS90, which increases damage at range and muzzle velocity but reduces close-range damage.

Heckler & Koch MP5A2

The Heckler & Koch MP5A2 was added in February 2016 as part of update 0.5.0 and is unlocked at rank 40. It is known simply as the "MP5" and serves as a versatile, modular submachine gun with an unusually high muzzle velocity. The MP5A2 can equip the extended barrel of the Heckler & Koch HK94 as a unique mod and, alongside the rest of the MP5 family, lacks a kill requirement to equip the Hensoldt Z24 scope.

Heckler & Koch MP5A2 - 9x19mm Parabellum
A German PDW with a roller-delayed blowback system. It is one of the most popular weapons in the world. Middle-of-the-road performance in every respect.

Heckler & Koch MP5A2 with Hensoldt Z24 scope - 9x19mm Parabellum
The MP5A2 with the Hensoldt Z24 scope equipped. While not unique to the weapon, the scope can be equipped for free (as opposed to requiring a certain number of kills with the weapon to unlock) on all MP5 and G3-series weapons in Phantom Forces.

Firing a spray of rounds, which (assuming the target is the ground) all hit their mark exactly.
On an empty reload, the player will lock the MP5A2's bolt to the rear before removing the magazine. This is not done on a tactical reload, which (at the expense of preserving the round in the chamber) makes inserting a fresh magazine much harder.
Afterwards, the player pulls the gun up and flicks it downwards, flinging away the empty magazine.
A fresh magazine is then inserted...
...and the bolt is battered home.

Heckler & Koch MP5A4

Equipping the "Burst Grouping" attachment for the MP5A2 transforms it into the Heckler & Koch MP5A4, albeit without the ability to fire in full-auto. This also (somehow) increases the weapon's headshot damage and changes its damage profile to be more focused on close-quarters combat.

Heckler & Koch MP5A4 - 9x19mm Parabellum
The MP5A4 as it appears in-game.

Heckler & Koch MP5K

The Heckler & Koch MP5K was added during the game's Alpha is unlocked by default. It has the ability to attach muzzle attachments, meaning the weapon is likely modified with a SP5K barrel, which can accept muzzle attachments. As a default weapon, the MP5K is easy-to-use, possessing manageable recoil, high firerate, rapid reloads, and excellent walkspeed. The submachine gun's damage drops off fast at range, however, which limits its versatility on larger, more open maps. The MP5K has access to a few notable modifications, including the carbine-length barrel of the Heckler & Koch HK94, the stock of the Heckler & Koch MP5K-PDW, and free access to the Hensoldt Z24 optic.

Heckler & Koch MP5KA4

The Heckler & Koch MP5A4 can be made by equipping the "Burst Grouping" mod on the MP5K. The MP5KA4 has a slightly higher firerate (924 > 900 RPM) and better torso multiplier (1.10 > 1.00) than the base MP5K at the cost of not being able to fire in full-auto.

The MP5KA4 as it appears in-game.

"MP5K/10"

Equipping the fictional "10mm Auto" conversion for the MP5K transforms it into the "MP5K/10". While MP5s converted to fire 10mm Auto do exist (see Heckler & Koch MP5/10), they are exclusively of the full-length variety. The "MP5K/10", owing to its much punchier cartridge, possesses significantly increased damage and recoil.

The "MP5K/10" as it appears in the loadout menu.

Heckler & Koch MP5SD2

The Heckler & Koch MP5SD2 was added in February 2016 as part of update 0.5.0 and is unlocked at rank 60. Known simply as the "MP5SD", this submachine gun offers great handling characteristics, a speedy reload, and a potent integral suppressor, which prevents the player from being revealed on other players' minimaps when firing. The MP5SD2 has a few downsides, however, most notably its subpar ranged performance and lethargic muzzle velocity. It also, due to the suppressor, lacks the ability to equip muzzle devices. The MP5SD2 can equip a "Long Barrel" attachment that increases muzzle velocity and improves damage at range but reduces close-range damage and decreases handling.

Heckler & Koch MP5SD2 - 9x19mm Parabellum
An integrally suppressed version of the MP5 for special operations forces. Reduced range and velocity compared to the MP5, but with better recoil control.

Doing the thing that must always be done when reloading an MP5. There are no exceptions.

Heckler & Koch MP5SD5

The "Burst Grouping" mod transforms the weapon into the Heckler & Koch MP5SD5, swapping the gun's ability to fire in full-auto for a three-round burst and a slight increase to long-range damage.

Heckler & Koch MP5/10

The Heckler & Koch MP5/10 was added in March 2016 as part of update 0.7.0 and is unlocked at rank 74. Offering a substantial damage increase over the base MP5 and dealing respectable damage at range, the MP5/10 is a potent weapon in almost any situation as long as one considers its jumpy recoil. Not unlike the other members of the MP5 family, the MP5/10 can equip the carbine-length barrel of the Heckler & Koch HK94 and Hensoldt Z24 optic as unique modifications. Also available are the "Burst Grouping" conversion, which allows the weapon to shoot in three-round bursts (that deal increased damage, for balancing purposes), and the "Retract" and "Remove Stock" mods, which grant increased mobility at the expense of recoil control.

Heckler & Koch MP5/10 with 3-round burst trigger group and retractable stock - 10x25mm Auto
An MP5 variant introduced in 1992 chambered in 10mm Auto and intended for use with police. Possesses somewhat unstable recoil with high damage and penetration for a PDW.

The MP5/40 as it appears in-game.

Heckler & Koch MP7A1

The Heckler & Koch MP7A1 was added during the game's Alpha and is unlocked at rank 9. Known simply as the MP7, the PDW has access to a unique extended 40-round magazine. When equipped with the joke "Loudener" attachment, the MP7A1's firing sound is changed to that of the Heckler & Koch PDW from Half-Life 2. The weapon's high rate of fire (950 RPM), high close-range damage, and powerful cover-penetrating performance make the MP7 extremely effective in close-quarters combat. Its low minimum damage and above average horizontal recoil make it less useful at range, however.

Heckler & Koch MP7A1 with Zeiss Z-Point red dot sight - 4.6x30mm
A compact German PDW with a unique ammunition type, intended as a competitor to the P90. High fire rate and wall penetration, moderate range, poor ranged performance.

Heckler & Koch MP7A2

Equipping an underbarrel attachment on the MP7A1 transforms it into the Heckler & Koch MP7A2 (sans the tan finish).

Heckler & Koch MP7A2 with RAL8000 finish - 4.6x30mm
The MP7A1 with a Magpul AFG equipped. This replaces the A1's foregrip with an underbarrel rail, making it (technically) an MP7A2.

Heckler & Koch UMP45

The Heckler & Koch UMP45 was added during the game's Alpha and is unlocked at rank 5. It has a sole underbarrel RIS rail as opposed to the tri-rail setup seen in the picture below. Its reload sounds are from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The UMP45 can equip the carbine-length barrel of the Heckler & Koch USC as its only unique modification. As is to be expected from a submachine gun firing .45 ACP, the UMP hits very hard but fires somewhat slowly and has poor muzzle velocity.

Heckler & Koch UMP45 with RIS rail - .45 ACP
Designed as a replacement to the MP5, the UMP45 is a heavy-hitting low recoil-oriented platform that lends itself to consistently good performance. With great damage, great mobility, and decent recoil, the UMP is a good choice for all purposes.

IMI Micro Uzi

The IMI Micro Uzi was added in December 2019 as part of update 4.11.0 (Israeli Weapons update) and is unlocked at rank 68. It is classified as a machine pistol (and lacks a stock in its default configuration) in-game. When using a optic, the charging handle is replaced by a vaguely Uzi Pro looking charging handle, which extends out to the left. Some of its reload sounds are taken from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The Micro Uzi has two unique mods: a shoulder stock, which reduces recoil and walkspeed, and special "Strike-3" ammunition which transforms the Micro Uzi into a compact full-auto scattergun. Similar to the other available machine pistols, the Micro Uzi is extremely effective in close-quarters (due to its high damage and rate of fire) but is next to useless at range due to its extremely high recoil.

IMI Micro Uzi - 9x19mm Parabellum
A compact version of the Uzi, favored by criminals of all walks. Fires at an incredibly high rate of fire, but mind the ammo.
IMI Micro Uzi with stock extended - 9x19mm Parabellum

IMI Uzi

The IMI Uzi was added in December 2019 as part of update 4.11.0 (Israeli Weapons update) and is unlocked at rank 77. Unusually, the Uzi's bolt is not closed after the last shot and its rear iron sight is cut down. It has access to the carbine-length barrel of the Uzi Carbine and the weapon's stock can be unfolded or replaced by a fixed wooden stock. The Uzi uses 25 round magazines and has access to a number of ammunition conversions, including .22 LR, which decreases damage and recoil while increasing headshot damage and magazine size, and .41 AE, which vastly increases damage while limiting the Uzi to semi-automatic fire and lowering the magazine size. A third conversion is for .45 ACP, which increases damage and magazine size while worsening recoil and rate of fire; while the description for this attachment mentions the use of M3A1 "Grease Gun" magazines, the Uzi's magazine model remains unchanged. Firing at 600 RPM, which is on the lower end of the PDW class, the Uzi is a hard-hitting and controllable submachine gun. The weapon's downsides, including its poor walkspeed and low minimum damage, can make it difficult to use at both short and long ranges, however.

IMI Uzi - 9x19mm Parabellum
An Israeli submachine gun, favored by the IDF throughout the Cold War and famed for it's [sic] reliability. Moderate rate of fire with low recoil and above-average damage.

IWI X95

The IWI X95 is called the "X95 SMG" and is unlocked at rank 115. Interestingly, the X95 uses 32 round Uzi magazines, but the Uzi in-game only has 25 round magazines, despite a model existing for 32 rounders.

IWI X95 - 9x19mm Parabellum

KRISS Vector

The Gen I KRISS Vector is unlocked at rank 100. It has Diamondhead backup iron sights, a 2 round burst mode and a light grey frame and stock. Incorrectly, the charging handle slides completely backward when being cocked. In real life, it pivots to the side at a 90-degree angle and only slightly slides backward.

KRISS USA Gen I Vector - .45 ACP

M1928 Thompson

An M1928 Thompson is unlocked at rank 121, referred to as "Tommy Gun", with a 20 round magazine by default, the rear sight is that of the M1 Thompson and there is no Cutts compensator. The weapon has 5 unique attachments - the Lyman sights of the M1921, the M1928A1 handguard (which changes the name to "Thompson"), the 30 round magazine and the 50 round drum. The final attachment is a conversion to the "Annihilator" prototype, which makes the weapon fire at 1500 RPM. This conversion is called the "M1919 Conversion", which is incorrect, as the M1919 did not fire this quickly. The "Typewriter" admin-only M1928 has the 100 round drum.

M1928 Thompson with 50-round drum magazine - .45 ACP

M3A1 "Grease Gun"

A black M3A1 "Grease Gun" is unlocked at rank 71. While in the Test Place, it was grey, like the real weapon.

M3A1 "Grease Gun" - .45 ACP

MAC-10

The MAC-10 is unlocked at rank 23, chambered in .45 ACP with 30 round M3A1 magazines. There is a 9x19mm conversion option, an extended stock and the Sionics Suppressor, as well as the TEC-9 extended barrel, which makes the weapon appear as if it has come from BOCW. Due to the small size, the player holds it like a pistol, with both hands on the grip. The alternate aim mode has the gun held sideways, "gangster" style. This is shared with every pistol except the Desert Eagles. When using optics, they are mounted on a raised rail, so as not to obstruct the bolt, and the angled grip attachment clips into the trigger.

The reload sounds are the same as the Uzis above, which were partially taken from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

PP-19 Bizon-2

The PP-19 Bizon-2 chambered in 9x19mm is unlocked at rank 105. It has the smooth magazine of the Bizon-1, and a correct 53 round capacity. The weapon has a 64 round 9x18mm conversion.

The in-game description contains the quote "Kept ya waiting, huh?" which references a trademark line of the character Snake from the video game series Metal Gear. It is also a nod to the long wait players had before this weapon was finally added to the game.

PPSh-41

The PPSh-41 with the 71 round drum is unlocked at rank 92. Due to the barrel shroud, grips are mounted on the side of the drum magazine, which is plainly ridiculous. The 35 round magazine is unlockable as an attachment. Like the UMP-45, it reuses the reloading sounds from the MW2 and CS:GO UMP-45, with the charging handle sound of the AK-12.

PPSh-41 with 71-round drum- 7.62x25mm Tokarev

Sa vz. 61 Skorpion

The Sa vz. 61 Skorpion is unlocked at rank 87, classed as a machine pistol. Like the Micro Uzi, the extended stock attachment is unlocked by default. The stock also extends when using an attachment in the "Other" category, but it provides no statistical advantage. Ironsights from other weapons cannot be attached, and any optics are mounted on the barrel due to the upwards ejection of the Skorpion. It has a snake/ratshot conversion, which renames the weapon to "vz.61-E". Weirdly, there is also a 50 round rubber pellets conversion.

Sa vz. 61 Skorpion - .32 ACP

Sa vz. 82 Skorpion

The 9x18mm Makarov conversion turns the weapon into the Sa. Vz. 82 Skorpion, but it still has the wood pistol grip.

Sa vz. 82 Skorpion - 9x18mm Makarov

Sterling L2A3

The Sterling L2A3 is unlocked at rank 53, with a 34 round magazine. It incorrectly tracks a round in the chamber, despite not being a closed bolt gun in reality. The player uses the magazine as a grip, which could result in malfunctions and breakages in real life. When attaching the EOTech XPS2 sight, it is not mounted on a rail, instead it is attached via knockoff Spongebob-themed tape.

Sterling L2A3 (Mk.4) - 9x19mm Parabellum

Steyr AUG A3 9mm XS

The Steyr AUG A3 9mm XS is unlocked at rank 80 and is called the "AUG A3 Para". It has a Coyote Brown frame. It originally had a 25 round magazine, with a 32 round magazine attachment, but now the default magazine is the 32 rounder.

Steyr AUG A3 9mm XS with RIS foregrip - 9x19mm Parabellum

Shotguns

All shotguns have access to alternate ammo types. 8-pellet buckshot is the default, while 8-dart flechette ammo, 6-pellet rubber pellet ammo, 16-pellet "birdshot" (16-pellet shotgun shells would actually be considered buckshot in reality) and slug rounds are all available as attachments. The pellet counts are the same as the ones stated here, unless specifically mentioned otherwise.

AA-12 CQB

The AA-12 CQB is unlocked at rank 112. It has access to a 20 round drum, but alternate ammo types cannot be used while using the drum. The model has brown patches on the trigger and handguard, and it lacks a trigger. It can be converted to semi-auto fire and a long rail mount is used when sights are equipped. However, the Generation 1 charging handle is used instead of the Gen 2 when certain optics are equipped. Due to this game's fairly realistic shotgun ranges (i.e. more than 3 feet), the 20 round full-auto AA-12 is one of the most overpowered weapons in the game. For whatever reason, you can nerf it yourself by making it semi-auto only with the correct attachment.

The "Long Barrel" attachment turns the CQB into a regular-length AA-12.

Beretta DT11

The Beretta DT11 is unlocked at rank 133. As a competition shotgun focused almost exclusively on long-range engagements, the Beretta DT11 is one of the more unique shotguns available in-game due to its extremely tight choke and abnormally low damage per pellet. The player has access to a variety of modifications for the DT11, including sawn-off barrels of multiple lengths (which increase damage and spread while decreasing reload time), multiple types of stock to help manage recoil, and a few unique 12 gauge ammunition types available only to the DT11, including #000 Buckshot, which drastically increases damage and recoil while decreasing pellet count, a 3 1/2" shell, which significantly increases pellet velocity, and a bolo round, which has unique "damage rampup", causing it to deal more damage the further it travels. Despite these advantages, the DT11, as a double-barreled shotgun, only has access to two rounds before it must be reloaded, which, coupled with its tight spread, demands precision from the player.

The Daewoo USAS-12 is unlocked at rank 189.

Daewoo USAS-12 - 12 gauge

"DBV12"

The "DBV12" (DBV stands for "drobovik", "shotgun" in Russian) is based on the prototype AK-12/76, a 12 gauge version of the prototype AK-12 and is unlocked at rank 24. The "DBV12" in game is specifically based on the Battlefield 4 weapon of the same name. Like the BF4 weapon, the in-game weapon uses the standard AK-12 magwell, though actual AK-12/76 concept art from Izhmash showed it with an extended magazine well, which is reflected in the photoshopped mock-up below. The mock-up image also has a longer barrel than the "DBV12" in-game.

Aside from the same 4 ammo types all shotguns have access to, the "DBV12" can be converted to fire .30-06 rounds, which makes the weapon full auto, and .410 bore shells, which make the weapon a 3 round burst. It has a 10 round magazine.

Double Barrel Shotgun

The "Stevens DB" is unlocked at rank 81 and is based on the Stevens Model 355/330 hammerless double barreled shotguns and fires 10 gauge shells. It has the ability to fire each barrel seperately, or both at the same time, just like the "Sawed Off", and the player always fires the right barrel/back trigger first. Unlike the M79, the opening latch is not used when reloading before the barrels are broken open. All muzzle attachments require double the number of kills usually required to unlock them, due to the weapon having two barrels. No suppressors are available except for a homemade "Muffler" attachment. Additionally, all muzzle attachments except the compensator clip through each other.

The stock has the word "BOOM" engraved into it in the same font as the DOOM logo, and the description states "It spells doom for whatever's in front of it". These are both references to the Super Shotgun from DOOM II, which was a sawed-off double barrel shotgun.

Savage/Stevens 311A - 12 gauge

Franchi SPAS-12

The SPAS-12 is unlocked at rank 120 and it only fires in semi automatic mode unless you equip the "Pump-action" attachment. Like the vz. 61 Skorpion, the stock unfolds when using optics, but it provides no actual advantage unless the "Extended Stock" attachment is equipped. The "Full Stock" attachment gives it a solid, fixed stock. The reload animation incorrectly does not show the character using the carrier latch button, which must be depressed to load new shells. Like most videogames, the stock has a hole in it in order to use the sights when folded.

Kel-Tec KSG

A green Kel-Tec KSG is unlocked at rank 1, called "KSG-12". Like most videogames, the tube selector is not used when reloading, so the game treats the dual magazines as one magazine tube.

Kel-Tec KSG-25

The KSG can be converted to the KSG-25 with the "KSG-25 Conversion", giving the weapon a 24+1 capacity and a longer barrel.

Kel-Tec KSG-25 with Magpul RVG foregrip - 12 gauge

KS-23M

The KS-23M is unlocked at rank 56. Firing massive 23x75mmR shotgun shells and featuring a tight choke with high damage at range, the KS-23M can vanquish enemies further out than most other shotguns at the cost of a low magazine size (3+1) and slow handling in close-quarters. In typical Phantom Forces fashion, the shotgun's wire stock can be removed and a longer barrel can be fitted. The KS-23M also features an abnormally large assortment of unique ammunition modifications, including

  • Shrapnel-25 shells, which increase pellet velocity and decrease both spread and individual pellet damage
  • Volna-R, which fires a single large rubber slug that instantly kills at close range but has high drop-off
  • Barrikada, a dense metal slug with high velocity and penetration
  • A single-shot harpoon conversion, which offers a one-hit kill at any range at the cost of a long reload after each shot
  • A 4 gauge conversion, which vastly increases the weapon's damage but slows its reload time (and changes the weapon's name to TOZ-123)

The pumping sound used in-game is the same as Black Mesa's SPAS-12.

Remington Model 870 Express Tactical Magpul

The Remington 870 is unlocked at rank 11, fitted with Magpul furniture, ring ironsights and a 6 round tube. The furniture is white, but it was previously green and in the beta it was grey.

The 870 in the menu.

Saiga-12K

The Saiga-12K, simply called Saiga-12, is unlocked at rank 63. It is modelled with a 5 round magazine, despite holding 8+1 in-game. It can be converted to fire in full-auto. It also has numerous ammunition conversions:

  • Saiga-223 (.223 Remington), fires in full-auto, holds 40 rounds (10 for the 12U).
  • Saiga-308 (.308 Winchester/7.62x51mm NATO), fires in full-auto, holds 20 rounds (5 for the 12U).
  • Saiga-50 (.50 BMG), fires a single shot inserted manually into the chamber (cannot be reloaded on the 12U).
  • Saiga-762 (7.62x39mm), fires in full-auto, holds 30 rounds (10 for the 12U).
  • Saiga-953 (9.6x53mmR Lancaster), fires in semi-auto at 70 RPM, holds 10 rounds (5 for the 12U).
  • Saiga-9 (9x19mm Parabellum), fires in 3-round bursts, holds 30 rounds.
Saiga-12K - 12 gauge

"Saiga-12U"

The "Saiga-12U" is a custom secondary shotgun in the "Other" category and unlocked at rank 95. It has a 2+1 round capacity, which can be extended to 5+1. It can also be modified to fire in full-auto, just like the regular Saiga-12, and has access to the same ammo conversions (albeit with different capacities).

The Saiga-12U greatly resembles the modified Saiga-12K seen in Gamer, The Expendables, and Drive Angry, though with a 2-round box magazine instead of a 20-round drum for obvious reasons.

Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun

Unlocked at rank 90 is the "Sawed Off", a traditional side-by-side Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun. It uses the same model as the Stevens Double Barrel seen above, but with the barrels cut down. It is in the "Other" secondary class. It has the ability to fire each barrel seperately, or both at the same time, just like the Stevens, and the player always fires the right barrel/back trigger first. All muzzle attachments require double the number of kills usually required to unlock the,, due to the weapon having two barrels. No suppressors are available except for a homemade "Muffler" attachment. Additionally, all muzzle attachments except the compensator clip through each other.

The "Boom Stock" attachment gives the weapon a stock, which, like the Stevens, has the word "BOOM" written in the same from as the DOOM logo. This is another reference to the Super Shotgun from DOOM II.

Serbu Super Shorty

The Serbu Super Shorty is unlocked at rank 36 as the first "Other" category sidearm, referred to as the "Super Shorty"; however, it was originally referred to as the "Serbu Shotgun". It is a shortened Remington 870, which the description correctly states. It has a vertical grip, but no access to underbarrel attachments. It also has a 2+1 capacity and has no rear sight, just a front bead sight. It has access to a 5+1 round extended tube and a "Traditional Pump" giving it the handguard from the Remington 870 MCS.

Assault Rifles

AK-12

The 2012 prototype AK-12 is unlocked by default. Like virtually every AK rifle variant in the game, it is shorter than the M16A3/4 rifles, despite being longer than it in real life. It has access to a "BARS Barrel" attachment, giving it the AK-107's balanced recoil mechanism and removing the ability to fire in full-auto.

AK-74N

The AK-74N is unlocked at rank 74. It has the smooth top cover of the later AK-74M version.

The "Collapsible Stock" attachment gives it the stock of the East German MPi-KM-72.

AK-74 - 5.45x39mm
MPi-KMS-72 - 7.62x39mm

AK-103

The AK-103 is unlocked at rank 103. It has the 3-round-burst mode of the AK-103-2 and the railed dust cover of the AK-103M. An RPK-203 barrel is available as the "Long Barrel" attachment. A 5.56x45mm conversion utilizing 35-round Galil magazines is available, roughly resembling the AK-101.

AK-103 - 7.62x39mm

AK-104

An approximation of the AK-104 (with an incorrect muzzle device) can be created with the "Short Barrel" attachment. An approximation of the AK-102 can be made by pairing with the 5.56mm conversion.

AK-104 - 7.62x39mm

AK-109

The "BARS Barrel" converts the weapon and changes its name to the AK-109. An approximation of the AK-108 can be made by pairing with the 5.56mm conversion.

AK-109 - 7.62x39mm


AK47

The AK47 is unlocked at rank 47. In previous versions it was a mishmash of AKM and AK-47 parts, but received a model update in version 11.1.0 (July 2024) turning it into a proper AK-47. It serves as a high damage option with almost battle rifle-like performance. It has access to a shorter barrel, underfolder stock (turning it into the AKS variant), a railed dust cover with optics and Zenitco handguard when mounting most underbarrel and "other" attachments.

AKM - 7.62x39mm
MPi-KMS-72 - 7.62x39mm

VPO-209

Using the .366 TKM conversion changes the weapon to the VPO-209, which also changes the name correctly in-game too. This is available on both the AKM and "AK47". This allows usage of slugs and birdshot ammo types.

VPO-209 - .366 TKM

AN-94

The AN-94 is unlocked at rank 10. The barrel correctly reciprocates backwards when firing, but equipping any barrel attachments stops this animation from occurring. Like most guns in the game, it has the correct firerate - 1,800 RPM in hyperburst mode and 600 RPM in full-auto; the first two shots on full-auto are also fired at the same rate as the burst. It has access to a 7.62x39mm conversion, based off a variant allegedly in limited service (whether or not it actually functions is unknown).

AN-94 - 5.45x39mm
The AN-94 in the loadout menu.

AS Val

The AS Val is unlocked at rank 15. It used to (incorrectly) be classed as a PDW, but update 0.9.0 moved it to the Assault Rifles category.

The weapon has a 20 round magazine by default, but a 30 rounder is available, as well as the "Suppressor.. ?" attachment, which is the only barrel attachment. In-game, it doesn't do anything apart from pitch up the noise of your shots, and it is nonsensically attached to the end of the integral suppressor. It is modelled after the PBS-1.

Diemaco/Colt Canada C7A2

The Diemaco/Colt Canada C7A2 is unlocked at rank 128, with an ambi charging handle, which comes as standard on the real weapon. It was originally in the Alpha, but was removed and added into the full game in update 5.1.0. The description reflects this ("This gun reminds you of a simpler time"), but it also incorrectly states that the C7A2 has an integrated optic, referring to the C79. It is not integrated, and can be removed, which it is in-game, the rifle using its back-up iron sights instead.

It has access to a "Diemaco LSW" barrel turning it into the Diemaco/Colt Canada C7/C7A1 LSW, though it does not have the built-in grip or carry handle. It greatly improves suppression and accuracy at the cost of firerate. Despite converting the gun to open-bolt operation it still incorrectly chambers a round.

FAMAS G1

The FAMAS G1 is unlocked at rank 45, incorrectly called the F1. The previous model used a STANAG magazine and was called the G2, but this was still incorrect as it had the F1-style magazine well. This rifle has the correct 25 round magazine of the F1 and G1.

The bipod is functionally useless, however it deploys when the "Long Barrel (AR)" attachment is used.

FAMAS G1 - 5.56x45mm NATO

FAMAS G2

The weapon can be turned into a FAMAS G2 with the "G2 Conversion", which gives the rifle the ability to use STANAG magazines.

FAMAS G2 - 5.56x45mm NATO

FAMAS Valorisé

Attaching any scope turns the model into a FAMAS Valorisé, apart from the trigger guard of the G-series rifles.

FN SCAR-L

The FN SCAR-L is unlocked at rank 16. It features a 9mm conversion, which uses a 32 round Uzi magazine.

Like every SCAR variant, it has the PM II scope unlocked by default.

"HAMR IAR"

Another FN SCAR-L loaded with a 50 round X-Products drum is unlocked at rank 72. It is called the "HAMR IAR" in-game, but does not have the deeper handguard of that variant, and is just a SCAR-L with a drum magazine and the HAMR's receiver reinforcements. In an attempt to approximate the real weapon's open/closed bolt function (despite being permanently closed-bolt in-game), it has a "ramp-fire" mechanic where the firerate increases the longer the trigger is pulled (from 550 RPM to 750 RPM by default).

It has access to a standard 30-round magazine and a fictional 9mm conversion which uses a 100-round Beta-C drum magazine. Like every SCAR variant, it has the PM II scope unlocked by default.

Heckler & Koch G11 K2

The German wonder weapon, the Heckler & Koch G11, is unlocked at rank 211, which reflects the name of the weapon, combining and rearranging the 2 from K2 and the 11 from G11. The weapon is the only caseless weapon in-game and appropriately does not eject spent casings when firing. It has back-up ironsights instead of the integral scope by default, although the scope is an attachment option. The irons are AAC flip up ironsights that are also used on the AAC Honey Badger. It correctly fires at 2,100 RPM in burst, and 460 RPM in auto.

The description ("Wait a minute, this is the future. Where are all the phaser guns?") references the movie Demolition Man.

The weapon uses the same reload sounds as the P90 above. It also has two magazines as part of the model either side of the magazine that is currently being used, but these are just part of the model and are unusable. The magazine does not reciprocate when firing, which is incorrect.

Heckler & Koch G11 K2 - 4.73x33mm

Heckler & Koch G36

The Heckler & Koch G36 is unlocked at rank 25. It has the export version of the rail top carry handle, rather then the G36C version, which is more common in videogames. The "Hendsoldt 3x Optic" adds back the ZF 3x4° sight, although it is missing the top 1x reflex. As long as some sort of optic is present on the weapon, the 3x will appear, and you can use it by pressing the alternate aim button.

"MG36"

The G36 makes another appearance, masquerading as the Heckler & Koch MG36. The weapon has the Beta-C drums and bipod of the MG36, but the bipod is unusable, like other weapons with a bipod by default. Like all G36 variants in the game, it has the export variant of the rail top carry handle and a Tommybuilt .300 Blackout conversion (renaming it to "MT36"). The weapon is unlocked at rank 33.

As a LSW, it is in the LMG section.

Heckler & Koch G36K

The Heckler & Koch G36K is unlocked at rank 6 and is incorrectly classed as a carbine - while it does have a shorter barrel than the standard G36, it is not short enough to be considered a carbine. Like all G36 variants in the game, it has the export variant of the rail top carry handle.

It has access to a fictional .300 Blackout conversion, apparently using a modified Tommybuilt T36 receiver.

Heckler & Koch HK416A5

The Heckler & Koch HK416A5 is unlocked at rank 62 and is known simply as the HK416. It has a different reload compared to the rest of the AR-15 family, with the magazine knocked out by flicking the rifle to the right.

It has access to a .300 Blackout conversion, along with a "Full Stock" and "Long Barrel (AR)" attachment.

L85A2

The L85A2 is unlocked at rank 55.

L85A2 - 5.56x45mm NATO

M16A1

The M16A1 was added in December 2022 in update 7.1.0 and is unlocked at rank 28. Interestingly, it has the same "ramp-fire" mechanic as the HAMR IAR listed above, where the firerate increases the longer the weapon is fired, from 750 RPM to 900 RPM. It has access to a Colt 4x20 scope and a 30-round GI mag loaded with M855 ammunition; this increases armour penetration and gives more conventional performance but wildly reduces accuracy due to the A1's rifling.

M16A1 - 5.56x45mm NATO
One of the most iconic weapons from the Vietnam era which replaced the M14 battle rifle, known for being light when fully loaded. This rifle uses the early M193 cartridge, meaning its performance differs from modern M855 with poorer penetration and high velocities, but the powder used means recoil and cyclic rate is high.
With Colt scope and 30-round M855 magazine.

"M16A3"

An M16A2 with a full-auto trigger group appearing as the "M16A3" is unlocked at rank 31. Before a visual overhaul in update 7.1.0 it had the same model as the M16A4. It performs as a weaker but fully automatic counterpart to the M16A4, with some of the lowest recoil in its class and decent range but relatively weak damage. It has access to a "Burst Grouping" attachment, turning it into a proper M16A2 with 3-round burst fire, improved recoil and damage multipliers. Interestingly, mounting optics will replace the upper receiver with a railed A4 pattern upper.

A traditional AR-15 platform assault rifle as used by the US military. This version features a fully automatic trigger group. Accurate with low recoil and a fast reload.
With various mods including DPMS Mangonel sights, a shortened "Dissipator" barrel, stubby foregrip, burst grouping and a PMAG with 6.5mm Grendel rounds.

M16A4

The M16A4 is unlocked at rank 22, depicted with a KAC handguard without rail covers. Its bolt does not lock back when empty and the selector is set to safe. It also has the inaccurate ability to fire the remaining bullets in a burst when the player is not pulling on the trigger - the cam mechanism of the M16A4 requires the trigger to be depressed to fire. If the trigger is lifted mid-burst, the remaining rounds are fired in the next burst e.g. two bullets are fired before the trigger is released, the next trigger pull would only fire one bullet because the mechanism has not reset.

6.5x39mm Grendel and .25-45 Sharps conversions are available, along with various barrel and stock attachments.

Steyr AUG A1

The Steyr AUG A1 is unlocked at rank 20, with the lowest firerate of all AUG rifles. It has the Swarvoski scope by default, which is also an attachment option, meaning two Swarvoski scopes can be used at once on the AUG A1. Toggling the aim type changes from the Swarvoski optic and either the back-up iron sights atop the optic, or the optical attachment mounted on top of the default optic. When optics are used, they are placed above the scope on a Picatinny rail (which resembles the Clawgear AUG Modular Scope Mount). Underbarrel grips replace the folding grip with a tri-rail setup.

Steyr AUG A2

The Steyr AUG A2 is unlocked at rank 39, with the rail of the Special Receiver version. Despite all AUG variants being the same in real life, the A2 in in-game is in-between the firerate of the A1 and A3.

Sturmgewehr 44

The StG-44 is unlocked at rank 144. The floorplate of the magazine is missing, and optics will wobble when attached. The weapon has an odd 5.56x45mm conversion.

Type 88-2

The super-rare North Korean Type 88-2 is unlocked at rank 122. The default configuration of the rifle has it equipped with its infamous helical magazine, but they only hold 75 rounds instead of the reported 150, likely for gameplay balance, although nobody really knows how many rounds it holds, or if it is even a functional magazine. It is correctly depicted with the ribbed dust cover and proprietary overfolding stock, needed because standard AK side- or under-folding stocks would not work with the bulky helical magazine. The helical magazine can be swapped out for a 30-round magazine with the "Regular Mag" attachment.

The AG-3F2, a modernised version of Norway's AG-3 rifle, is unlocked at rank 76. It incorrectly uses the AG-3 name.

AG-3F2 - 7.62x51mm NATO

"AK12BR"

The fictional "AK12BR" is unlocked at rank 44. It's an odd weapon, chambered in 7.62x54mmR and utilising the same Balanced Recoil system from the AEK-971 and other weapons, which is what the "BR" in the name stands for (not "Battle Rifle" as you might assume). The Balanced Recoil system is housed in a fictional housing that matches the colour and material of the main receiver, and it also comes with a Picatinny rail on top. It has a 20 round curved magazine, although before an update it used a 30 round 5.45x39mm magazine like the regular AK-12, which somehow held 7.62x39mm. This made the weapon technically an assault rifle, but following feedback the developers changed the weapon to the bigger cartridge and smaller magazine. The developers state they included it as a battle rifle despite being an assault rifle in its original form because there were not enough battle rifles in the game.

Alexander Arms .50 Beowulf EBR

The Alexander Arms .50 Beowulf Entry Complete Rifle (abbreviated as "Beowulf ECR") is a battle rifle unlocked at rank 21. It features a flat-top receiver, a 16.5" (42cm) barrel, and a standard Picatinny railed gas block. The rifle is sold standard with black furniture. Additionally, the weapon in-game is modified with Mangonel Flip-Up Sights. It can be modified to fire in three round bursts, which means it fires 3 bursts of 3, then a burst of either 1 or 2, depending if there is a round in the chamber or not, due to its 10 round magazine.

Alexander Arms .50 Beowulf TCR

The Alexander Arms .50 Beowulf Tactical Complete Rifle (abbreviated to "Beowulf TCR" in-game) is listed as a designated marksman rifle in-game, unlocked at rank 70. This variant of Alexander Arms' Beowulf rifles features a flat-top receiver, 16.5" (42 cm) barrel, a low-profile gas block, Manticore Arms Transformer Rail handguard, B5 Systems SOPMOD BRAVO Collapsible Stock, and an upgraded trigger. The rifle in-game is shown with other upgrades purchasable for the TCR, such as an FDE Cerakote finish, FRAG grip panels and KeyMod panels, and the Tank Muzzle Brake. This muzzle brake is never removed and any muzzle attachment is mounted inside of it, like similar weapons with default muzzle brakes, like the Serbu BFG-50. It also has the same Diamondhead sights as a few other weapons in the game, notably the KRISS Vector. Finally, a 5.56x45mm conversion is available, which makes the rifle weaker but triples ammo capacity from 10 to 30 and fires twice as fast, 800 RPM instead of 400.

DSA SA58 SPR

A heavily customised FAL rifle most closely resembling the SA58 SPR is unlocked at rank 78. It features a full sized, 21-inch barrel FAL with a blue handguard without the top rail, an M16 pistol grip, a different customised stock and standard FAL iron sights compared to the real SA58 SPR. It also has standard FAL 20 round magazines instead of the 10 round magazines seen on the reference photo below. It is classed as a DMR in-game.

DSA SA58 Special Purpose Rifle - 7.62x51mm NATO

FN FAL 50.00

The FN FAL 50.00 is unlocked at rank 107, as a select-fire battle rifle with a 20 round magazine. It can be converted to fire .45 ACP for some odd reason, which uses a 50 round drum.

FN FAL 50.00 - 7.62x51mm NATO

"FAL Para Shorty"

A custom short FAL rifle called the "FAL Para Shorty" is unlocked at rank 98, classed as a PDW/SMG. It is an odd weapon, with a folded FAL paratrooper stock, an MP5K grip and handguard and an extremely short barrel. The MP5K grip is a different colour to the rest of the weapon, implying it was taken from an MP5K and attached to the weapon. The end result bears a resemblance to the compact FAL from the movie The Wild Geese, which might have been the inspiration for this weapon. It is select-fire in-game.

The sprinting animation uses the same animations as the pistols and the MAC-10. During its time in the Test Place, it was classed as a carbine instead of a PDW/SMG.

FN SCAR-H

A grey SCAR-H is unlocked at rank 30. It has a 30 round 7.62x39mm conversion and the same firing sounds as the lower caliber SCAR-L.

Like every SCAR variant, it has the PM II scope unlocked by default.

Heckler & Koch G3A3

The G3A3 is unlocked at rank 59, simply called the "G3".

Heckler & Koch HK417

The HK417 is unlocked at rank 78, correctly depicted as select-fire and classed as a battle rifle.

Heckler & Koch HK417 with 16" barrel - 7.62x51mm NATO

IMBEL M964 A1 ParaFAL

The IMBEL M964 A1 ParaFAL is unlocked at rank 89, incorrectly referred to as the "FAL 50.63 Para"; it has neither the correct barrel length, charging handle, or stock of that version. It is incorrectly classed as a carbine, although it was correctly classed as a battle rifle before an update; it also used to be correctly called the "PARA FAL". It features the same 50 round .45 ACP conversion, as well as a 5.56x45mm conversion, which makes the weapon resemble the FN FNC, albeit with a standard FAL handguard.

IMBEL M964 A1 MD-1 ParaFAL - 7.62x51mm NATO

M14

The M14 is unlocked at rank 2, depicted (rarely, for a video-game) as select-fire, boasting a firerate of 750 RPM. The weapon features a 6.5mm Creedmoor conversion, which increases the magazine size from 20 to 30.

M14 - 7.62x51mm NATO
The M14 in the menu.

MC51SD

An integrally suppressed version of the HK51, the MC51SD is unlocked at rank 86 and is incorrectly classed as a carbine instead of a battle rifle. It has a longer barrel than the real MC51SD, akin to the Heckler & Koch G3KA4. The stock can be used with the "Retractable Stock" attachment, which, confusingly, extends the stock.

MC51SD - 7.62x51mm NATO

Ohio Ordnance HCAR

The Ohio Ordnance HCAR was added in October 2023 as part of update 9.0.3 and is unlocked at rank 181. By default it is correctly semi-automatic only, but can be converted to full auto with an open bolt.

Ohio Ordnance HCAR - .30-06 Springfield

Springfield Armory M1A

The Springfield Armory M1A is unlocked at rank 68 and is incorrectly referred to as the "M21"; it is not a real M21 as it lacks the fire selector. It comes with a 10-round magazine, which is swapped for a standard 20-rounder with the 6.5mm Creedmoor conversion.

Springfield Armory M1A - 7.62x51mm NATO

Rifles & Carbines

AAC Honey Badger

The AAC Honey Badger is unlocked at rank 62 and is classified as a carbine. Oddly, muzzle attachments can be used at the same time as the integral suppressor, which is obviously impossible in real life, but does have a basis in reality, as the Barrett M107 has a proprietary suppressor that allows other muzzle attachments to be used in tandem with the suppressor. The suppressor is also removable, which does not have as much of an impact on the ballistics as you might think, given the weapon only has a 6" barrel.

AAC Honey Badger - .300 AAC Blackout

AK-12 Carbine

The AK-12 Carbine, an originally planned variant of the 2012 prototype of the AK-12, appears as the "AK-12C", and is chambered in 7.62x39mm. In reality, this prototype carbine only existed in early photoshopped images and didn't enter development stage, though the post-2016 production version of the AK-12 series eventually included a 7.62x39mm carbine variant called the AK-15K (which has various differences from the planned prototype). It has access to a 9x39mm conversion using 20-round AS Val magazines.

The Long Barrel attachment converts the weapon into a full-sized AK-12 prototype in 7.62x39mm.

AK-105

The AK-105 carbine is unlocked at rank 105. It has the railed dust cover of the AK-103M. Like the AK-103 it has access to a 5.56mm conversion utilizing 35-round Galil magazines.

AK-105 - 5.45x39mm

AK-107

The "BARS Barrel" converts the weapon into the AK-107. An approximation of the AK-108 can be made by pairing with the 5.56mm conversion.

AK-74M

The Long Barrel attachment converts the weapon into the AK-74M.

AK-74M - 5.45x39mm

AKS-74U

The AKS-74U is unlocked at rank 88, and is incorrectly classed as a PDW/SMG instead of a carbine and is called the "Krinkov". It has a 9x19mm conversion roughly modelled off the Palmetto State Armory AKV (using MP5 magazines) and a 7.62x39mm conversion listed below.

AKS-74UB

Equipping the PBS-4 Suppressor effectively makes the weapon an AKS-74UB.

AKS-74UB - 5.45x39mm

AKMSU

The 7.62x39mm ammo conversion turns the weapon into the AKMSU.

AKMSU (converted AKM pistol) - 7.62x39mm

AK-12U

The AK-12U, a planned (but not developed) sub-carbine version of the 2012 prototype AK-12, appears under the misnomer "AKU12". It is unlocked at rank 35.

Photoshopped mock-up of the AK-12U - 5.45x39mm

"PPK-12"

The 9mm Conversion converts the weapon into the "PPK-12" (which is the name of an early submachine gun concept of the AK-12 prototype), complete with name change and conversion to 1000 RPM 3 round burst mode. The PPK-12 was originally added as a PDW, then removed and replaced with the conversion for the "AKU-12". The original PPK-12 is now a developer-only weapon. The old model is able to be seen in the main menu. There was also a stockless version categorised as an "Other" sidearm.

Visually the weapon resembled the PP-19-01 Vityaz SMG, but with 2012 prototype AK-12 externals.

Prototype AK-12 - 5.45x39mm

Daewoo K1A

The Daewoo K1A is unlocked at rank 63. The charging handle incorrectly doesn't lock back on an empty magazine. It has access to a 7.62x39mm conversion modelled off the full-sized DR-300 variant, using modified AKM magazines and changing its name to "MAX-III".

Diemaco/Colt Canada C8A3

A Colt Canada C8A3 with the barrel of a C8A2 is unlocked at rank 128.

Colt Canada C8A3 - 5.56x45mm NATO

FN SCAR PDW

The FN SCAR PDW is unlocked at rank 32. It has access to a 7.62x51mm NATO conversion utilizing a FN SCAR-H lower and a fictional 9x19mm conversion using 50-round drum magazines.

FN SCAR PDW (old version) - 5.56x45mm NATO

Gwinn/Bushmaster Arm Pistol

The Gwinn/Bushmaster Arm Pistol, which is actually a subcompact bullpup carbine legally defined as a pistol under certain US states' laws, is unlocked at rank 110 as the "Arm Pistol". It comes with a 20 round STANAG magazine and a illegal conversion to full-auto fire at 800 RPM, which places it into the machine pistol category. The extended magazine attachment gives it a standard 30 round STANAG magazine. Due to the 5.56mm ammo used, it deals the same sort of damage as 5.56mm assault rifles, but due to the compact size, it also shares the same recoil values from the M231 listed below.

The weapon is modelled after the earlier Gwinn version of the Arm Pistol, and it has the trigger group permanently at a 38 degree tilt. Weirdly, when the "Ballistics Tracker" attachment is used, two appear instead of one. This is the first appearance of the weapon in a videogame.

Gwinn/Bushmaster Firearms Arm Pistol - 5.56x45mm NATO

Heckler & Koch G36C

The Heckler & Koch G36C is unlocked at rank 7.

Heckler & Koch G36C - 5.56x45mm NATO
The G36C in the loadout menu. Note that even though the iron sights are of the standard G36C type, the carry handle lacks the triangular protrusions on the inside like on an export variant.

Heckler & Koch SL8-1

The Heckler & Koch SL8-1 is unlocked at rank 34. It incorrectly uses a double-stack 30-round G36 magazine. It has access to a binary trigger and a .300 Whisper conversion which increases damage but reduces firerate, muzzle velocity and replaces the magazine with a (still incorrect) 10-rounder, turning it into an approximation of the SL9 (minus the proprietary suppressor).

Henry 45-70 All-Weather Lever Action

The Henry 45-70 All-Weather is a modern (2016) reproduction of the original Henry 1860 lever-action rifle. As the name suggests, it fires .45-70 Government instead of .44 Henry. While being a modern weapon, it retains the loading system of the 1860, modified slightly to allow for a handguard to be fitted to the rifle. A magazine tube is removed from the weapon and individual rounds are loaded into it, then it is pushed back into the tube under the barrel. This reloading procedure is replicated in-game, and the magazine tube only holds 5 rounds. The model in-game has a marginally longer barrel than the image below.

The Henry is classed as a battle rifle, although it functions more like a low-velocity sniper rifle, with a faster firerate than all snipers, but still much slower than the semi-auto battle rifles. This problem can be circumvented with Plus P ammunition, which makes the weapon fire rounds much faster, and also gives the weapon higher penetration. .410 shotshells can also be used, which changes the name to "Henry 410" and makes the weapon fire 4 pellets instead of one bullet. Oddly, these pellets are almost directly over each other, with strong vertical spread instead of horizontal, as one might have expected. A .30-30 conversion is also available, as well as the "Malcolm 3x Scope". It can also use the same scope as the PGM Hecate II sniper rifle, the "Sidewinder ED", which makes it the only non-sniper rifle to have access to this scope.

Henry 45-70 All-Weather Lever Action - .45-70 Government

IWI X95R

The IWI X95R is unlocked at rank 130. It has access to 5.56x45mm and .300 Blackout conversions.

Knight's Armament Company Revolver Rifle

A slightly visually altered Knight's Armament Revolver Rifle appears as the "KAC SRR" (Silenced Revolver Rifle), is classed as a carbine and is unlocked at rank 125.

Knight's Armament Revolver Rifle - .30 caliber. The weapon in-game features ironsights instead of the scope seen in this reference image.

L22 Hybrid

A hybrid between the L22A2 and the SA80 AFV prototype (referred to as just the "L22" in-game) is unlocked at rank 28. It is mostly based off the AFV prototype, but it has the receiver of the L22A2.

M231 Firing Port Weapon

The M231 Firing Port Weapon is unlocked at rank 123 and is classed as an assault rifle in-game. Being a weapon only designed to fire from an M2 Bradley, it is not the easiest thing to use in combat. It fires at 1225 RPM, has extreme vertical and horizontal recoil and has no iron sights at all. Correctly depicted as open bolt, it also has the wire stock available as an attachment, though the model is borrowed from the M3A1 "Grease Gun" and is not the correct stock for the M231.

In real life, it is only meant to be used inside the M2 Bradley, removing it is inadvisable in a combat scenario outside of extreme emergencies. The game reflects this with the description stating "the M231 Firing Port Weapon is only intended to be used inside the Bradley AFV in a special mount. Hits hard, but good luck hitting anything..."

The weapon's description ("... You're going to use it anyways, Boss?") has a reference to Metal Gear Solid 3, where "The Boss" uses a heavily modified short-barrel AR-15 platform rifle with a Beta C-Mag magazine called the Patriot. The same sort of weapon can be created by equipping the "Short Barrel" attachment and the "M855 Specialty Conversion", the latter replaces the 30 round magazine with a C-Mag.

M231 Firing Port Weapon - 5.56x45mm NATO

MBA Gyrojet Carbine

The carbine variant of the Gyrojet is unlocked at rank 127. Like the pistol, it has reverse damage, which increases with range. It also has the fictional full-auto upgrade, like the pistol.

Gyrojet Mark 1 Model B Military Carbine - 13mm

OTs-126

The OTs-126, a semi-auto carbine variant of the PP-2000, is unlocked at rank 48. It is depicted as select-fire in-game. Like the PP-2000 it exclusively uses 9x19mm +P ammo and has access to 7N31 "Super Armor Piercing" rounds.

OTs-126 - 9x19mm Parabellum

OTs-14-1A-01 Groza

The OTs-14-1A-01 Groza appears as the "Groza-1", unlocked at rank 42. It has access to a 5.45x39mm conversion (utilizing a 45-round RPK-74 magazine) turning it into the OTs-14-2A, and a 5.56x45mm conversion (incorrectly using a 30-round AK-74 magazine) turning it into the OTs-14-3A variant.

OTs-14-1A-01 Groza - 7.62x39mm

OTs-14-4A-03 Groza

The OTs-14-4A-03 Groza is unlocked at rank 79, referred to as the "Groza-4".

OTs-14-4A-03 Groza - 9x39mm

Remington 1858 "Cattleman's Carbine"

The Remington 1858 "Cattleman's Carbine" is unlocked at rank 93.

Remington 1858 "Cattleman's Carbine" - .44

Rossi Circuit Judge

The Rossi Circuit Judge is unlocked at rank 114 and is referred to as the "Jury". It has access to a variety of .410 Bore variants that are identical to the standard shotgun ammo selection, with the notable exception of slugs, being replaced with an "Exotic Slugs" round that fires 2 projectiles. Regardless of ammo choice it is always depicted as being loaded with .410 shells.

Rossi Circuit Judge - .410 bore/.45 Long Colt

SKS

The SKS in a Tapco Intrafuse stock with a 20-round detachable magazine is unlocked at rank 13. The original wood stock is available as an attachment, along with conversions to .366 TKM "polymer slug" and buckshot rounds, which turns it into the VPO-208 and restores its original 10-round integral mag (though this always incorrectly loads a full clip).

Sniper Rifles

Accuracy International Arctic Warfare Suppressed

The Accuracy International Arctic Warfare Suppressed is unlocked at rank 41 and is known as the "AWS". It has a 10 round magazine and is stated to be firing .308 Winchester. It is the only integrally-suppressed sniper rifle in the game, which gives it the lowest muzzle velocity in its class. The PM II scope it uses is a unique variant with an illuminated reticle.

Accuracy International AWS - 7.62x51mm NATO

Accuracy International Arctic Warfare Magnum

The Accuracy International Arctic Warfare Magnum is unlocked at rank 82 and is known as the "AWM". Prior to update 4.7.0, it had a white chassis and was known as the L115A3, which the model did not accurately represent. The new AWM has a much more accurate model. It was also available in the Alpha of the game.

The AWM comes with ironsights by default, the same as the KRISS Vector and Beowulf TCR. They are modelled after the Diamondhead flip-up sights, but the AWM has a unique front sight compared to the two other weapons that use Diamondhead sights.

Accuracy International AWSM without scope - .338 Lapua Magnum
Accuracy International AWM-F - .300 Winchester Magnum

Barrett M107A1

The Barrett M107A1 is unlocked at rank 170, with a tan frame and a five round magazine, for balancing reasons. It previously appeared in the Alpha build of the game, where it was an M82A1 model.

Two interesting things to note about this weapon: attaching a suppressor allows the player to hear the action cycling as well as the spring pushing the bolt back into battery, despite the M107 being one of the loudest guns in the whole game. Secondly (and strangely), the bolt does not cycle at the end of the last shot; the player instead ejects the last round during the reload animation.

Like the game's other .50 BMG weapons, it has access to .416 Barrett and "Dust Shot" conversions, the former increasing penetration and velocity while sacrificing range and damage, and the latter making absolutely no sense at all, turning an anti-materiel rifle into the world's most unwieldy semi-automatic shotgun.

Barrett M107A1 - .50 BMG

Cheyenne Tactical M200 Intervention

The Cheyenne Tactical M200 Intervention is the default sniper rifle, unlocked at rank 0. Foregrips are mounted in front of the upside-down carry handle; before update 4.0.0, the carry handle was removed when grips were used.

It has access to a straight-pull bolt and a .375 Cheytac conversion. The stock can also be removed.

Daewoo K14

The Daewoo K14 is unlocked at rank 138, making its first appearance in any media. It has an exclusive scope, the KOM 10x42, which cannot be unlocked for use on other sniper rifles.

Daewoo K14 - 7.62x51mm NATO

Denel NTW-20

The Denel NTW-20 is unlocked at rank 220. It features both 14.5x114mm and 20x110mm conversions, the latter of which turns the weapon into a single-shot breech loader. The weapon is incredibly heavy, denying the player the ability to walk while aiming or aim at all unless they are crouched, prone or near waist-high cover, as the weapon features a usable bipod system.

The description incorrectly states that the weapon was designed to take down tanks.

Denel NTW-20 - 20x82mm MG151

Dragunov SVDS

The SVDS Dragunov is unlocked at rank 104. The bolt does not lock back when empty and the ironsights more closely resemble a Gewehr 43 rather than the Mosin Nagant-style sights of the SVDS in reality.

Prior to Update 4.0.0, the weapon had a 5 round capacity in a 10 round magazine model. It also used to be classed as a DMR, but it has now been changed to a sniper rifle and a 10 round capacity.

SVDS - 7.62x54mmR

Dragunov SVD

Equipping the "Full Stock" converts the weapon into a Dragunov SVD, with a wood stock and handguard instead of the SVDS' polymer. The name also changes to reflect the conversion.

SVD Dragunov - 7.62x54mmR

Dragunov SVU

A green SVU Dragunov is unlocked at rank 38. It has a PSO-1 which has much more magnification than a real PSO-1 - 7.5x compared to the real scope's 4.0x. The SVU also has access to iron sights. The bolt does not lock back when empty.

Before Update 4.0.0, the SVU was classed as a DMR, had 5 rounds in a 10 round magazine and had an integral suppressor, due to the unique, cylindrical appearance of the muzzle brake on the SVU. After this update, the developers realised the error, re-classed it as a sniper rifle and removed the suppressor effect from the built-in muzzle brake, although it is non-functional like other guns with muzzle brakes by default. The magazine capacity has also been increased to 10.

FN SSR

The FN SSR, called the "SCAR SSR", is unlocked at rank 85. It is classed as a DMR in-game. Despite having one fire mode, semi-auto, it has an animation to switch fire modes. It has a 20 round SCAR-H magazine loaded with 10 rounds and a 6.5mm Creedmoor conversion.

Like every SCAR variant, it has the PM II scope unlocked by default.

FN SSR (Sniper Support Rifle) - 7.62x51mm NATO

Grünig & Elmiger FT300

The Grünig & Elmiger FT300 is a Swiss sniper rifle, unlocked at rank 160 and chambered in .243 Winchester by default. It features a lot of customisation, with caliber conversions to .22 LR, .308 Winchester, 7.5x55mm and 6XC Norma, a modified .250 Savage round designed for competition shooting. Other options include a "Marksman Kit", adding a 10 round detachable magazine and a straight-pull bolt (not compatible with the .22 LR conversion), an integral suppressor, the "Olympian Target Sight" and "Olympian Grip" and finally, the Wood Furniture modification, which has very little stat changes.

The G&E logo is replaced with the Stylis Studios logo.

Grünig & Elmiger FT300 - 6mm BR

Heckler & Koch MSG90

The Heckler & Koch MSG90 is unlocked at rank 59. It has access to a .308 Winchester conversion, which changes the magazine to a 5 rounder incorrectly loaded with 10 rounds.

Heckler & Koch MSG90 - 7.62x51mm NATO

Knight's Armament SR-25

The Knight's Armament SR-25 is unlocked at rank 3, under its SOCOM designation of Mk 11. It has the back up irons of the real weapon as the default ironsights. It is classed as a DMR.

It has a conversion to .500 Phantom rounds.

M1903 Springfield

The M1903 Springfield is unlocked at rank 136. It has access to a Unertl scope and Maxim silencer. It can be converted to the rare Air Service version, or have a Pedersen Device installed.

Mosin Nagant M1891/30

The Mosin Nagant M1891/30, known simply as the "Mosin Nagant", is unlocked at rank 91, a nod to the original rifle's designation of M1891.

The reload animations are always wrong unless reloading from an empty magazine - the player character will always push a full stripper clip into the rifle, regardless of remaining rounds. The bolt has to be opened to reload, which would cause a round to be lost, but no such mechanism is present in-game. Additionally, the top round is not pulled upward to avoid rims locking together, which could cause misfeeds, and the "clip" part of the stripper clip is removed incorrectly.

The rifle always has the bent bolt regardless of attachments, and can attach a PU-1 scope (mounted further forward so it doesn't interfere with stripper clips). Additionally, it has access to two conversions; an Austro-Hungarian "8x50mmR" conversion, which increases damage at close range, decreases range and loads rounds individually, and a .410 Bore conversion which turns it into a shotgun named "Frolovka". The ironsights have a higher zoom than almost every ironsight in the game, including ones on other sniper rifles like the AWM, which has irons by default. Interestingly, it has access to an extended magazine attachment; this is modeled off of the Howling Raven 10-round extended magazine, and loads via two stripper clips despite the magazine being detachable in previous versions of the game and real life.

Mosin Nagant "Obrez"

The Mosin Nagant "Obrez" version, a sawn-off Mosin with a standard bolt, is available in the "Other" secondary category and is unlocked at rank 117. It shares all the reload inaccuracies from the M1891/30 listed above. The Obrez, as you would expect, has a lot of recoil, spread and bulet drop, but it can be effectively used as a pocket sniper.

By default, it lacks a front sight, making aiming rather difficult. However, a barrel attachment called "Front Post" remedies the issue, extending the barrel just far enough in order to attach a front sight onto the barrel. The "Obrez Stock" and "Long Barrel" make the weapon approximate the M38 Carbine in appearance, barrel length and performance, though it will still have more bullet spread than the proper rifle.

The weapon also has access to the 8x50mmR conversion, .410 conversion (changing its name to "Frolobrez") and the extended magazine, like the full-length rifle.

As a bit of trivia, the appearance of the Obrez in Phantom Forces predates the appearance of the Obrez in Battlefield 1 by a few months, making Phantom Forces the first game to feature one as a standalone weapon (though one could be created in DayZ by sawing down a full-length Mosin prior to this).

PGM Hecate II

The PGM Hecate II is unlocked at rank 150, with a Scrome LTE J10 F1 scope. Despite the Hecate's recoil compensation measures in real life such as the muzzle brake and its weight, which is supposed to reduce recoil to a level comparable to that of a .308 Winchester, the in-game depiction of the gun has very high recoil, most likely due to balancing purposes.

PGM Hecate II - .50 BMG

Remington Model 700 Magpul

The Remington Model 700, fitted with a Magpul chassis, is unlocked at rank 14 and is known as the "Remington 700". It has a 6 round magazine, which does not exist, meaning a 7 round magazine has been loaded with 6 rounds. However, the model is that of a 5 round magazine. It has access to a 10-round extended magazine, a straight-pull bolt and a fictional .32 ACP conversion which increases the headshot multiplier, firerate and walkspeed but greatly reduces damage.

Sako TRG-42

The Sako TRG-42 is unlocked at rank 84. It has a white chassis and MBUS back up ironsights, despite the rifle already having built-in irons. In-game, it is chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum.

Serbu BFG-50

The Serbu BFG-50 makes its inaugural appearance in a form of media, identified as "BFG 50", being the most powerful sniper rifle in the game until the addition of the Hecate II and M107. It is well-known by the community due to its insane one-shot-kill potential and the fact that many low-level players would unlock it with credits before they reached rank 65. It is a single-shot, breech-loading .50 BMG rifle.

The rifle has a few unique attachments - .17 Wildcat rounds are super-bottlenecked .50 BMG rounds which increase the bullet velocity of the BFG 50. It can also use .416 Barrett ammo and M903 SLAP rounds. It is equipped with the NXS 8-32 scope by default.

All muzzle attachments are mounted inside the default muzzle brake, which is just part of the model and provides no statistical advantage.

"SFG 50"

A fictional super short-barrelled version of the Serbu BFG-50, known as the "SFG 50", is unlocked at rank 75 and it is part of the "Other" secondary weapon category. As you would expect from a short-barrelled .50 BMG rifle, it has insane recoil and low accuracy at range. The default muzzle brake is just part of the model and provides no statistical advantage.

Like the BFG-50, it has access to .17 Wildcat, M903 SLAP and .416 Barrett ammo, along with the NXS 8-32 scope. It also has access to "Dust Shot", which turns the weapon into a bolt-action, single-shot shotgun.

The name "SFG 50" is never explained, nor was the name BFG for the BFG 50. As Serbu never gave any explanation for the name, many people have interpreted the acronym as "Big Fucking Gun", along the same line as the BFG 9000 from the DOOM franchise. This would make SFG stand for "Small Fucking Gun", which was reflected by the weapon's name in the killfeed being in lower-case until the Crimson Update.

Steyr Scout

An early-model Steyr Scout is unlocked at rank 195, equipped with a Leupold M8-6x scope. It is chambered in .376 Steyr and has an 8 round magazine. The straight-pull bolt is an attachment option for this weapon. It was previously chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, with an underloaded 9 round magazine (should be 10), but it was changed in an unknown update. Instead of a Steyr logo on the stock, there is a Stylis Studios logo.

VSS Vintorez

The VSS Vintorez is unlocked at rank 46. By default, it has no scope and a 10 round magazine, but a PSO-1 scope can be attached to the weapon. It is classed as a Designated Marksman Rifle in-game and it is the only select-fire DMR in-game. Unlike most select-fire weapons it is semi-automatic by default with full auto being a secondary firemode.

Like the AS Val, the Vintorez has access to the "Suppressor.. ?" attachment, which is the only barrel attachment. In-game, it doesn't do anything apart from pitch up the noise of your shots, and it is nonsensically attached to the end of the integral suppressor. It is modelled after the PBS-1. It can also be converted to use 7.62x39mm ammo (based off a civilian version made by Molot) which gives assault rifle-like performance, a 20-round magazine and makes full auto the default firemode but no longer silences the weapon.

The AS Val can also be made into a VSS with the "Full Stock" attachment.

Walther WA 2000

The Walther WA 2000 is unlocked at rank 200. It correctly has a 6 round capacity. The scope model seems to be the same as the one on the Scout, the Leupold M8-6x, however the reticle is different. Oddly, a red laser attachment emits a pink beam instead. The top-mounted bipod is deployed when the "Long Barrel" attachment is used, like the FAMAS. Also like the FAMAS, the bipod is functionally useless.

The description of the rifle states "Section 26, paragraph 5 - need to know. I'm sure you understand", which is a reference to The Living Daylights, a Bond film in which Timothy Dalton uses the WA2000.

Machine Guns

Browning Automatic Rifle M1918A2

The Browning Automatic Rifle M1918A2 was added in October 2023 as part of update 9.0.3. It has access to a shorter barrel and a sawn-off stock.

M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle without carry handle - .30-06
The M1918A2, also known as the B.A.R. A .30-06 Light Machine gun that, while not featuring as much magazine capacity as others of its type, still helped carry the Allied Armies to victory during many World War II battles. The most solid, dependable and courageous Marine I had ever known. Blink of an eye....gone. The last part of this description is a reference to Call of Duty: World at War.
With carbine barrel and remove stock mods.

Colt Model 750 LMG

The Diemaco/Colt Canada C7 LSW was added in version 2.0.0 under the name "Colt LMG", replacing the M60 as the first LMG players unlock. It is fitted with a Choate E2 stock, does not have the built-in foregrip and it uses a 60 round quad-stack magazine. Despite the fact that it has a fixed carry handle (being based on the M16A2), the carry handle is removed when used with optics. It has access to a fictional shorter barrel, a 6.5mm Grendel conversion (which unlike other AR-15 variants uses a 40-round PMAG loaded with 34 rounds) and a .20 Tactical conversion which generally improves bullet performance and accuracy but increases recoil and reduces ammo capacity to 30 rounds.

Diemaco C7 LSW/Colt Model 750 with Beta-C drum magazine - 5.56x45mm NATO
A squad assault rifle based on the AR-15 platform with a heavy barrel, large shroud and 60-round magazine. A jack of all trades, with a slow reload.
With various attachments including DPMS Mangonel sights, a shorter barrel, a collapsible stock and a PMAG loaded with 6.5mm Grendel rounds.
With .20 Tactical conversion, giving it a standard 30-round GI magazine.

Heckler & Koch HK21E

The Heckler & Koch HK21E is unlocked at rank 67. Like the Vollmer HK51-B, it has a unique belt box that only G3 LMG variants use.

Heckler & Koch HK21E - 7.62x51mm NATO
Belt-fed heavy variant of the G3 rifle. Fires at a high rate of speed from a 100 round box, but has awful recoil. Has a lengthy reload process.

Knight's Armament Stoner LMG

The Knight's Armament Stoner LMG was added in April 2023 with version 8.0.1 under the name "Stoner 96" and is fittingly unlocked at rank 196. It has some of the highest muzzle velocity and lowest recoil in the LMG class, but suffers from having one of the lowest firerates (at 550 RPM) and low TTK.

Knight's Armament Stoner LMG - 5.56x45mm NATO
A lightweight LMG in 5.56x45mm NATO introduced in 1996 as a simplified version of the ARES-LMG-1. The gun's low rate of fire paired with a constant-recoil system give the Stoner 96 incredibly low recoil.

KAC ChainSAW

The KAC ChainSAW was added in the same update under the name "ChainSAW" and is unlocked at rank 226. It has the largest ammo capacity of any weapon in the game at 200 rounds, the highest muzzle velocity of all LMGs (tied with the Stoner 96) and low recoil, but has many of the Stoner's same drawbacks and cannot use any optics whatsoever.

Knight's Armament ChainSAW - 5.56x45mm NATO. KAC suppressor and 37mm flare launcher not included.
An unconventional ergonomic conversion kit for the Stoner 96, designed to be fired from the hip and held like a chainsaw. While various methods were tested to aid the user's accuracy, none made the ChainSAW's accuracy consistent enough to push it past the prototype stage. Possesses decent damage with good mobility and an incredibly high belt-fed capacity, giving the gun extremely consistent damage output - even if it's not the most accurate.

L86A2

The L86A2 LSW is unlocked at rank 43, under the name "L86 LSW". Interestingly, equipping .223 Remington ammo gives the weapon a 50-round X-15 drum magazine, being a remnant of a previous update where .223 Remington ammo gave some weapons enlarged 40-round magazines.

L86A2 with SUSAT scope - 5.56x45mm NATO
A heavyweight squad support variant of the L85A2. Feeds from 30 round magazines, but has an incredibly high bullet velocity. Very stable.
With SUSAT scope, L85 barrel and 50-round X-15 drum loaded with .223 Remington.

M60E6

The M60E6, under the generic "M60" name, is unlocked at rank 19. It is fitted with a clubfoot stock and has the top rail from the Mk 43 Mod 1. It can be given the M60D's sights with the "Anti-Aircraft Irons" attachment and a cut-down stock used on early helicopter-mounted variants (known unofficially as the "M60B") with the "Remove Stock" attachment.

M60 - 7.62x51mm NATO
A belt-fed machine gun designed in the 1940s-50s to replace the M1918 BAR, combining elements of proven German MG42 and FG42 guns with American innovations. Features a relatively low rate of fire with high damage and penetration.
M60B - 7.62x51mm NATO
M60 - 7.62x51mm NATO
With M60D sights and M60B stock.

MG3KWS

The MG3KWS is the improved version of the MG3, unlocked at rank 101. It can be modified with a "heavy bolt" attachment (likely from the MG42/59 as it is stated to be manufactured by Beretta), which decreases firerate, and a "Full Stock" attachment giving it a standard MG3 stock and renaming the weapon to "MG3" (although it would require more substantial model changes to actually be one). Along with the MK11 it has access to "Depleted Uranium" ammo which vastly increases velocity and penetration but nullifies suppressors (and visually changes the cartridges in the belt to have black bullets).

MG3KWS - 7.62x51mm NATO
A belt-fed German LMG with roots dating back to the MG42. Fastest fire rate, but has a 50 round magazine, lower damage, and a lengthy reload process.
With anti-air sights, MG3 stock and depleted uranium ammo.

MG42

The MG42 is unlocked at rank 142. It can be modified with the "Light Bolt" and "Heavy Bolt" attachments, which in/decrease ROF. The latter has at least some basis in reality; while no such bolts were made for the MG42 itself, both the near-identical Zastava M53 and the later MG3 featured heavier bolts to reduce their cyclic rates.

MG42 - 7.92x57mm Mauser
The original, the iconic, the feared... The buzzsaw of the Axis Powers during the Second World War, back to prove its worth in the modern warzone. Fires extremely fast and hits even harder, but is slow and inaccurate.
Note that it uses an MG3-style belt drum rather than the proper Gurttromel 34, likely a holdover from the MG3KWS's model.
With anti-air sights.

RPK

The RPK with a 40-round magazine is unlocked at rank 54.

RPK with 40 round magazine - 7.62x39mm
A heavy variant of the AK47 with a more durable reciever and heavy barrel. Packs a punch, but fires slowly, with strong recoil.

RPK-12

The RPK-12, an early LMG concept of the AK-12 prototype, appears in the game. It is unlocked at rank 37, and has a 45 round magazine. It is based on the gun of the same name in Battlefield 4. It has access to a 7.62x39mm conversion which increases damage but reduces range, ammo capacity and removes the ability to fire in 3-round bursts.

Photoshopped mock-up of the RPK-12 - 7.62x39mm
A conceptualized prototype LMG, essentially a heavy-barrel version of the AK12. Features low recoil and an incredibly fast burst fire mode with a fast reload and high damage.
With shortened AK-12 barrel, folded stock and 7.62x39mm conversion.

RPK-74

The RPK-74 is unlocked at rank 88. It uses the same rear sight as the AK74, when it should have a rear sight with windage adjustment.

RPK-74 - 5.45x39mm
An updated variant of the RPK based off the AK74, intended to use the less powerful 5.45x39mm cartridge for greater recoil control and better performance overall.

Steyr AUG HBAR

The Steyr AUG HBAR is unlocked at rank 27. It has the same rail system as the AUG A2 and A3, as well as a 42 round magazine, which incorrectly visually resembles a brown 30 round STANAG magazine. It used to be closed-bolt, but an update changed it so that the weapon was open-bolt, however the charging handle still moves as if it were closed-bolt. It has access to a closed-bolt conversion which increases accuracy, allows an additional round in the chamber and reduces firerate, and a .22 Long Rifle conversion based off the F88T Austeyr.

Steyr AUG HBAR - 5.56x45mm NATO
Steyr AUG Special Receiver - 5.56x45mm NATO. Image used to show the Picatinny rail.
A heavy-barrel, open-bolt version of the AUG, with a slightly slower fire rate and larger magazine. Accurate, but with a slow reload.
With .22 Long Rifle conversion.

Vollmer HK51-B

The super-rare Vollmer HK51-B, a short-barrelled HK21 conversion, is unlocked at rank 160. It is an unofficial belt-fed short-barrelled G3 rifle, adapted to use the M13 link designed for the M60. Despite this, it has a unique belt box model that all G3 LMG variants use. The reload animation is the same as the HK21. The weapon has the 3 round burst mode from the MP5A5. The "Full Stock" attachment gives it the HK21's stock, and the "Short Barrel" gives it a fictional cut-down receiver similar to the Fleming HK51K (fittingly renaming the weapon "HK51BK").

Oddly, it is classed as a carbine, despite being a machine gun. This means it is the only belt-fed carbine in the game.

Vollmer HK51-B without ammunition belt - 7.62x51mm NATO
Aftermarket conversion of the HK21 heavy LMG. Fires at an extreme rate of speed from a 100 round box, but has awful recoil. Has a lengthy reload process.
Fleming HK51K - 7.62x51mm NATO
With shortened HK51K-esque receiver and retracted stock.
With Hensolt Z24 scope, aftermarket extended barrel and HK21 stock. Due to an improper placement the Z24's clamp mount clips with the bolt and forward assist.

Launchers

M79

The M79 appears as the "M79 Thumper", one of the grenade launcher's nicknames from the Vietnam War. It is classified as an "Other" secondary, alongside the Obrez, the "SFG 50", the "Saiga-12U", the sawed-off shotgun and the Serbu Super Shorty, and is unlocked at rank 79. The sights are permanently folded down, and are removed and replaced by a Picatinny rail when using optics. The stock is removeable, replaced by a sawed-off pistol grip, and the barrel can be shortened. Nonsensically, the weapon can also be fitted with a muzzle brake or a compensator, which would never be able to be attached to the M79 in real life. It also has access to the joke "Loudener" muzzle attachment, which makes the weapon louder when firing. When reloading, the opening latch is correctly used before the barrel can be opened, which is nice attention to detail.

The weapon does not fire HE 40x46mm grenades, as one might expect - instead, it fires 10 .22 LR bullets using the 40x46mm grenade casing, meaning it functions more like a single barrelled shotgun than a grenade launcher. This is not possible in real life - while there were experimental, shotgun like, ammunition for this weapons in real life, the chamber of the M79 cannot hold enough pressure to push small projectiles up to a lethal velocity. The barrel is rifled, therefore the small projectiles spread widely and is less lethal than a handgun or conventional shotgun at further range.

The M79 has a few ammo conversions. It can use Hollow Point and Armour Piercing, unlike other shotguns, owing to it using .22 LR, not regular shotgun shells. The 40mm Sponge ammunition is unlocked by default, a riot-control ammo type intended to be non-lethal; instead of killing, it stuns and shocks the target. It has a similar function to a slug round used in the other shotguns, but with more pronounced drop and a muzzle velocity of 60m/s. It can kill with a hit anywhere on the body, and it has a different model to the normal ammunition - the 40mm grenade now has a grey base and a blue tip. The M79 can also fire Flechette ammunition, which has 16 projectiles, more than standard 8 darts used by every other shotgun with the flechette ammunition equipped. Flechette pierces cover better, but deals less damage, less muzzle velocity and has more spread. ".410 Beehive" converts the M79 to fire .410 shells, with 12 pellets that travel faster and further than the .22 LR, but have less power and more spread, meaning it functions similarly to the birdshot ammunition. Buckshot makes it fire the standard 8 pellet shells used in other shotguns via an adaptor, dealing more damage and with more muzzle velocity than the standard .22 LR, but with more spread and less pellets, it is not very useful. Finally, double slugs function similarly to the 40mm Sponge, but with longer range, more spread and less drop, and a second projectile; one is always accurate while the other can vary wildly.

M79 grenade launcher - 40x46mm
A single-action break-action grenade launcher that is loaded with 10-round hornet's nest of .22 Long Rifle and tons of other ammo using proper shells or adapters. First appeared during the Vietnam War, it earned many nicknames by the soldiers.

e-Shotgun

The "E Gun" is the world's first commercial coilgun, called the e-Shotgun in real life and unlocked at rank 87. The weapon fires small discs, which the game affectionately calls "Angry Pancakes". A caliber conversion is available to the equally silly-sounding "Pennies" ammo type. Using the "Pennies" doubles the size of capacity up to 100 rounds. It features the real weapon's automatic and "shotgun" (actually a very fast 5-round burst) modes, and a semi-auto mode, with the burst firing at 2,800 RPM, 400 higher than the real weapon. Automatic fire is also faster, firing at 850 RPM instead of 600. The weapon also features a unique sight, the Kousaku OLED, unlocked by default.

e-Shotgun PD90

"Coilgun"

The "Coilgun" is a fictional secondary version of the e-Shotgun, also unlocked at rank 87, painted white instead of black. As a shotgun secondary, it is classed as an "Other" secondary. It features the same unique sight as the primary, and has only minor changes compared to the primary version.

Nerf Boxy Buster

The "Boxy Buster" is a pistol based on the USFA ZiP .22, added as part of a tie-in with Nerf, as Hasbro partnered with Roblox to make toy blasters based on various popular Roblox games. The ZiP .22 was selected due to its simplicity and popularity within the community as a joke weapon. The Boxy Buster is a real toy, which is functionally similar to the "Jolt" blasters. The in-game weapon is unlocked by redeeming a code that comes with the real blaster.

The weapon has incredibly unrealistic performance for a foam dart toy blaster. It has a muzzle velocity of 500m/s, which is the lowest in the game but still far higher than the real toy. The foam dart cannot penetrate walls and makes no noise when firing, so players using this blaster do not show up on the minimap. The darts have a preposterous range compared to the real blaster, able to hit enemies across the map and even result in a kill if a headshot is achieved, due to the low damage of 25 being boosted with a 3x torso multiplier and a 50x headshot multiplier, meaning the weapon does 1,250 damage to the head, the joint highest in the game with the 1911 pistol's dart conversion. The darts are green, like the ones that come with the real-life Boxy Buster.

The reload is incorrect, as the player never pulls the plunger underneath the grip, which is needed for the blaster to fire.
