The following weapons appear in the video game Shellshock Nam '67:


Colt M1911A1

The Colt M1911A1 is the main sidearm of the U.S. Armed Forces. Oddly, it is named the "9mm" in-game despite chambering .45 ACP. The pistol holds 7 rounds and can be found later in game with a suppressor.

The MAT-49 appears as the second submachine gun and is used by the NVA/VC Forces. It holds 32 rounds in its magazine, suggesting that it's the 9x19mm version and not the Vietnamese 7.62x25mm version.

Colt M16A1

The M16A1 rifle with anachronistic A2 handguard appears in-game as the "Assault Rifle" and is the standard of the U.S. Armed Forces. It holds 30 rounds despite being modelled with a 20-round magazine.

In cutscenes, the M16A1 with A2 handguards is replaced by a more correctly modeled M16A1. Numerous M16-type rifles are seen in archival footage at the beginning of the game, but none are clear enough to identify the specific model.

The M60 machine gun appears in game as the standard general purpose machine gun of the U.S. Army. It is fed by 100-round belts, but firing it too quickly can overheat it easily. An upgraded version called the "Death Machine" comes with a large backpack (that apparently grants the MG a 1,000-round capacity) with a feed chute attached to it and the gun. This variant is less prone to overheating.

Type 24

The Type 24 heavy machine gun, a Chinese copy of the Maxim MG08, is often found in enemy-held locations. It has unlimited ammo, but like the other machine guns in-game, it can overheat if fired too quickly without letting go of the trigger.

An AH-1F Cobra armed with an M134 Minigun in the nose turret is seen lifting off in the opening cutscene at Saigon Air Base. While the Cobra is more well known for its M197, a three-barreled version of the M61 Vulcan, it was originally fitted with an M134 Minigun and then later upgraded to the larger-caliber gun.

The M72 LAW appears in the game as a secondary weapon and due to it being a single use, disposable weapon, it can only be fired once before being discarded by its user.
