 Post subject: Weapons

I don't know about any of you, but I'm a weapon buff, and Im writing a piece of fanfiction, and I'd like to know the exact names of the weapons (projectile) used in Silent Hill 3.

I know the pistol is a Beretta of some sort, possibly a 9mm 92FS (judging from the recoil, although I could be wrong.) with the post AW ban 10 round magazines. (fitting, considering SH3 takes place sometime in the early 2000s (I always assumed 2003, with Silent Hill in '86) But from the muzzle end, it looks like a .45. It also looks a lot thicker thn an actual 92. This could just be a coder's mistake, however.
I can't I.D the shell casings for a caliber as they disappear too quickly.

Now I know that the SMG is an IMI Uzi.

The Shotgun could be a Mossberg 590 or a Remington 870 with an aftermarket pump handle. The fact that it only holds 6 rounds contridicts this, however. It could be shortened by local ordinance. Then again, it could just be a coders mistake.

Any thoughts?

Not as much "coder's mistake" as it is "Team Silent didn't give a flying fuck about accurately portraying real life weapons". :P The weapons stats are decided by gameplay and balance, not gun facts 1% of fans will care about over gameplay and balance.

None, save for SH3 happened in 2000, so that you might want to look for guns 'round that era - if they're at all different.

You don't have to be so condescending. I never said that the facts upset gameplay balance. I was just asking a trivia question.

I wasn't being condescending, honest. I'm nowhere near a serious enough person to be. :P
But seriously, the guns almost certainly are modeled off of stuff the devs saw in movies or TV, or other games, or pictures, without any though paid to realism or real life comparisons. I doubt if you asked the weapon modeler he would know the make and model the weapons were based off of. :P "The pistol is based off a pistol, yes, and the shotgun? Why, I based that off a shotgun."

But wouldn't they need some sort of reference in order to design the weapons in the first place? And if so, then they must be atleast based after a real weapon. Can someone who wants to help this guy out make a post. I'm not a weapons buff on any level so I'm afraid I'm no help. But if someone who actually knows something or is interested in looking into it reply.

I wish you the best Cyber!!!!! :D

:lol: That's funny.


Um, Cyber, why does your fanfiction need the exact name of the gun?
Besides, it's your fanfiction, so you can make it whatever gun you'd like.

I was thinking since it was a "gift". The giver moded the shotgun so that Heather could handle it better. The Fact theonly hold 6 shell could be for conserving shells. The more shell in the gun, the more liking she will waste them. Does that make sence?
