Over the past few weeks, I’ve been indulging with my inner “gun nut” and looking through the Internet Movie Firearm Database!

The Joker (Heath Ledger) an RPG, in the Dark Knight

By far, this is one of my favorite sites, right now!  It’s just put together SO DAMN WELL!

There, you can look up ANY film, video game, TV series and anime series and WILL find every firearm used and seen during it’s duration.  Personally, I love the overall attention to detail the writers have here, as they make sure the weapon matches what is being depicted.

For example, in Call of Duty: Black Ops, they call out that a lot of the weapons used are anachronistic (meaning-that never existed before the set time).  Such as an MP5K (shown below.

In-game screen

“An MP5K Prototype is featured in the game. Its appearance is massively anachronistic: the MP5 itself was developed in 1966, but the MP5K appears in the game in a level set in 1963, while the first MP5K prototype with wooden vertical foregrip was developed in 1976. It would have been more accurate to see the HK54 prototype of the MP5 which lacked a vertical foregrip. An MP5K appears as the fifth weapon tier in Gun Game (as can be seen in the bottom image).”  – IMFDB.ORG

Which is kinda cool and isn’t really intended to be a buzzkill, as most of these articles written are intended for those that have finished the said media.

WISE WARNING!!!  EXPECT SPOILERS ON THIS SITE!!

But if you’ve finished that game or movie and wanna look back at the COOL hardware used, be sure to set aside an ass ton of time, cuz there is plenty of info here!

Another thing that is cool, is that they will show you how many of the sci-fi weapons from movies like Blade Runner and Aliens were made, using the real guns!

Hope you enjoy the site, like I am!
