This sounds like BS to me. Most of the guns in “Pacific Rim,” for example, appear to be real ones.
Looking at the page, it looks like the only guns which were fired were the flare guns. I don't recall much non-Jager weapons fire in the film.

As for Hellboy II, aside from the custom made weapons, all you have are agents with their Glocks.

I never saw Shape of Water.

I suppose it makes sense for him, he makes films with a lot of CGI anyway, how much trouble could a few muzzle flashes be?
