Squid Game (2021)

Squid Game is a 2021 South Korean survival drama television series created by Hwang Dong-hyuk and distributed by Netflix. A group of 456 people are given the chance to play a series of children's games with life-threatening consequences to have a chance of winning ₩45.6 billion in cash. The show received overwhelmingly positive reviews, with praise for its performances, originality, atmosphere, and themes. Within a week, it became one of Netflix's most watched programs in several regional markets.

The following weapons were used in the television series Squid Game:



Walther PPK (lighter)

A cigarette lighter shaped like a Walther PPK caught at a prize machine is inadvertently given by Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) to his daughter Ga-yeong as her birthday gift in "Red Light, Green Light" (E01).

Colt M1911A1

A nickel-plated M1911A1 is used by the Front Man (Lee Byung-hun) throughout the series for self-defense and for executing both players and soldiers. He appears to be a left-handed shooter.

Smith & Wesson Model 10

Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolvers with wooden grips are carried by Managers (Squares), namely one in "Hell" (E02) who fires one shot into the air to silence rioting players. The Soldiers (Triangles) mostly carry the Model 19 revolver seen below.

Smith & Wesson Model 19

Smith & Wesson Model 19 revolvers with rubber grips are carried by Soldiers, mainly to execute players who fail to complete games. In "The Man with the Umbrella" (E03), player 119 steals a revolver from a Soldier which he then uses to shoot a Manager in the leg and then hold him hostage. The same model, but with wooden grips, is used by Hwang Jun-ho (Wi Ha-jun), a police officer who infiltrates the island where the players are held. The Front Man in "VIPs" (E07) erroneously identifies it as a Model 60, a stainless steel version of the Smith & Wesson Model 36, which the revolver visibly isn't.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine guns are the primary long gun of Soldiers while patrolling, overseeing players, and sometimes for executions. Some of them have a Picatinny rail attached, however they appear to be entirely cosmetic as no accessories are mounted on them. Some MP5s also appear as prop replicas.

Sniper Rifles

Knight's Armament SR-25

Players are "eliminated" by what appear to be Knight's Armament SR-25 sniper rifles set up on bipods and equipped with the KAC MK11 MOD 0 suppressor during the first game in episode 1. Despite being fitted with a suppressor, the rifles sound unsuppressed when fired.
