No, the Beretta in the game was under "Beretta M92FS". Not quite the manufacturer designation, but Capcom has a licensing agreement with Beretta for the 92FS, which has been a franchise mainstay since the original Resident Evil.

SAS use the Canadian C8FTHB, not the M4.

Does it bother you that most weapons in Call of Duty Black Ops are anachronistic? NVA with SPAS12 shotguns????
Modern Warfare 2 was really good. It was money well spent - Except for Some Russian invading forces carrying TMP's and MP5K's as primary weapons (grab your SMG's we're going to invade USA comrades!) -
Anyways, I think this was a step back.

If you know you're invading the land of shopping malls and urban sprawl, maybe you want some good close-in equipment?

The logistics of fielding like 20 different guns would be a bitch.

That's true. I'd like a game to simulate magazines more in depth. Maybe loading a few mags with different ammo, having to reload the magazines when you go back to base. Having different capacities between mags.

It's weird, in games where you upgrade a gun by buying magazines, and suddenly: only hi-capacity magazines exist.

Yes, it bothers me. And I've never even played the game!

Ah, OK, forgot about that. I believe they did receive M16s and CAR-15s from the U.S., though (they've been using ARs since the 1960s, long before Canada started making them).

I believe it was toronto swat that up to recently used m16a1s after dismal accuracy in their old "skinny mini" 14s.

Quantum of Solace (the video game) had some exact or closely-accurate modeled Walther firearms. The P99 was even modeled with a serial number on the back of the frame, below the slide/cocking indicator.

Canadian manufacturer, American design. It's just about the same rifle. They just call it something else. The UK uses the Benelli M4 but call it something else while the US military calls it the M1014 even though it's the same gun
