Not quite G36s & The Joker's Dream Scene Sidearm

These rifles do look like G36s, but if you look closer, they only have a faint resemblance. Excalibur01

What about the revolver the Joker uses and the pistol hes uses in the main game to "shoot" Batman during the fear toxin sequence?

I think it is fair to say that the assault rifles where patterned after the HK G36K variant with aspects of the other variants combined. Of course the barrel looks squarish but I believe that is due to limitations of the otherwise fine game engine. As for the gun The Joker uses during the third fear toxin sequence I can't be sure but it could be modeled on any number of weapons (Glock or maybe an HK USP?). You only get a clear shot of the weapon as Joker pulls it out and points it at Batman. Maphisto86 11:40, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Who says the Glock 17 is the sidearm of Arkham guards???? All Arkham guards do not carry sidearms, not the ones in the gray uniforms, or the ones in riot gear! (I really checked) Arkham Guards do not carry sidearms. They do not even have belt holsters! Can anyone post an image to back up the security guard sidearm claim? The things on their belts:

  • 1. Flashlight (Some of them)
  • 2. Nightstick/Stun Baton
  • 3. Radio
  • 4. Ammunition Pouches

No holster, anywhere, on any of them.

All right, this is silly. Even if I examine the belt of every guard I meet in the game, no sidearms. And yet, Warden Sharp is forced to tell everyone with sidearms to unload them into their own heads by the Joker. Okay, I admit that probably there is some Arkham guard somewhere that carries sidearms, but since this is never seen, who says it has to be the Glock 17? Frank Boles is wearing something strapped on his leg that could be a sidearm in his bio picture. It probably is not anything like that, though.

The Warden was also forced to read something to his guards, meaning he most likely didn't make all that up on the spot. The Joker must have written something in advance and forced the Warden to read it, hence the Joker doesnt know if any guards have sidearms. Excalibur01 16:28, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Prison guards don't even carry firearms unless they are up on the walls or in the guard towers. When they are inside the prison I believe they carry mace-S&Wshooter 21:10, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Some don't even carry mace, but remember this is a fictional prison in a comic book universe. It has high tech force field like doors and advanced equipment. Most of the guards inside seem to carrying assault rifles and shotguns. Excalibur01

Obviously I must have been mistaken about the guards carrying sidearms. I really thought I saw some of them carry them but I think you are right that they don't. Nevertheless, the Joker uses two pistols in the game (if you count the DLC which is obviously a ridiculously huge magnum of some kind). There is however the pistol he uses in the nightmare sequence. I can't tell what kind of weapon it is supposed to be but it could be a Glock model. Maphisto86 06:05, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Assault rifle

I just noticed this when looking at the Arkham Ccity page (as in early screnshots the same model for the rifle appears, which is currently identified as an SG 552 which it definitely is not) but I think this mystery rifle is actually based on an SL8. This may sound odd, but the telling part is the rear of the receiver, and is best shown in this screenshot:

Along with this early screenshot from Arkham City:


Now compare to an SL8:

Heckler & Koch SL8-4

The thing that gives it away is that the botom of the receiver slants upwards from the pistol grip to the rear. Also, you can see there is an assembly pin at the apex of the pointed section at the rear with a horizontal slot (which is a window to read the serial number) next to it, which is present only on the SL8 variants and not the genuine G36. Obviously it has a pistol grip rather than the thumb-hole stock, but in the scale of things this is a minor tweak for a computer game gun, and in any event I think it is a closer match than the G36KV it is currently ID'd as. Anyone disagree or have any other thoughts before I change it on here and the Arkham City page? --commando552 (talk) 17:20, 6 December 2012 (EST)
