    In any case...this is a great article, now go learn yah about some of dem guns.
  • P0ck3tC1am - May 19, 2014 3:27 p.m.

    Heads up to all the "Real life Impaired" Most guns were name changed due to specific rights by the gun company...so that gun (ex: the executioner from blops 2) that looks very similar to that one gun( Taurus: The Judge) yes it was a name change. Also it's a game, don't expect these guns to be used realistically, especially you Berret .50 cal 360 quick scopers out there, The Berret alone is almost 30 lbs...damn near impossible to do what you can in the games. But that's why all our CoD avatars hare manly overly buff men in the Army / Navy....makes so much sense.

    Nothing beats dual P-90s.

    EDIT I mean 35-round box magazine not 35 box magazines carried at time :D

    BTW PPSh-41 Game point view In most games always had 71 drum magazine what makes cool bullets spayer device. Reality That PPSh-41 with drum magazine never so much popular like shown on games or films why ? Because that gun had tendency to jam, and hard to reload, as my dad said, they load only half bullets in drum mag or had spared box 35 magazines.

    No I'm curious if the GoldenEye's Klobb is a good or bad weapon. (Not sure if it exists IRL)
  • TPoppaPuff - March 8, 2014 5:27 p.m.

    It's the scorpion. They had to change the name (twice) for legal reasons.
  • Vonter - March 8, 2014 5:35 p.m.

    And is it an effective weapon IRL? 'Cause it sucks big time in the game.
  • TPoppaPuff - March 8, 2014 5:57 p.m.

    Well, the Skorpion is on this list lol. As the article states it's not really a military grade weapon. It's a PDW never meant for operations. PS. Noticed I spelled it scorpion instead of scorpion in first post. My bad.
  • Vonter - March 9, 2014 7:26 a.m.

    Oh my. Sorry hehe. Still this is my favorite Skorpion weapon: http://turok.wikia.com/wiki/Scorpion_Launcher

    Another side note on the G11, it actually never saw service because of German and US relations at the time. Germany was financially failing and the US had to step in and bail them out before it started to effect our financial system, that coupled with the high cost of the weapons production was the final nail in its coffin.

    Pancor Jackhammer I cannot believe how often I see that steaming pile of *bleep* in games. For those unfamiliar with it, it's a bullpup design drum feed (10 rounds of 12ga. shells, variable loads possible ie fletchettes) shotgun. It has NEVER been in production, there were so many issues with the prototype stage it never entered production. But it's notable in that it's appeared in more games than prototype units were made including Max Payne, Fallout 2 and Tactics, a couple of Battlefield games (MK3A1 in game), and both Project IGIs. And that's only a short list. I'm surprised the Calico Systems series of firearms don't pop up more than they do, being rather obscure but look excessively cool. I actually winced when I saw the G11, I had forgotten how common it was in games despite the cooking issues, caseless just has no chance long term without solving that problem effectively while still permitting a reasonable rate of fire. And I'm glad the WA2000 made the list, it's the one rifle I wish I could get to handle personally. Also I find the FN P90 (and variants) over represented as well overall, though they're more used now then when the original Golden Eye was released admittedly my best reckoning has under 10,000 in use globally excluding the PS90 (civilian semi automatic variant).

    These are some great ideas! I'll make sure to take them into account if and when I update the article.
  • alecbeals - March 7, 2014 2 p.m.

    Great article, stuff like this and the armor expert discussing game armor feasibility are reasons I keep coming back to GR. MORE TYING VIDEO GAMES TO REAL WORLD THINGS!
  • JakePPetersen - March 8, 2014 11:24 a.m.

    Thanks for your support! I definitely look forward to unleashing my inner gun nut some more in future articles.
  • Eightboll812 - March 7, 2014 7:28 a.m.

    what...the...heck is that in the bottom left of the first slide?
  • JakePPetersen - March 8, 2014 11:19 a.m.

    Some people REALLY love their guns...
  • db1331 - February 28, 2014 1:21 p.m.

    The G11 was my favorite gun in Black Ops. I gave it the code name "Breadbox." I used to absolutely wreck people with that thing. I thought I was going to see the 870 shotgun on here, but then again, I think it's wildly popular irl as well. Also, the M1 Garand. Everyone loves it in every WWII shooter because of the loud PING it makes when you fire the last round in the mag. But I remember seeing a special that said the soldiers using it quickly realized that sound was a great way to notify the enemy that you were out of ammo and had to reload. This lead to soldiers changing out mags before firing the last shot, which wasted ammo.

    The article is about how games make uncommon firearms in real life to be used wide spread or standard by troops. IE Desert Eagle (Though there are rumors the Israeli Special Forces used it during a raid once), XM8 Rifle, and G43. The M1 Garand was WIDELY used by the US forces, save the early years of WWII for the Marines until they adopted it. I think the issue you brought up with the M1 Garand would be for an article about issues with popular rifles and not the over use of low to minor production firearms.
