Dying Light is is a 2015 survival horror video game developed by Polish video game developer Techland and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Microsoft Windows, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game revolves around an undercover operative sent to infiltrate an infected-filled quarantine zone in the fictional city-state of Harran. While most of the game's combat is melee-focused, the player can purchase or find various firearms and their ammunition throughout the game. These weapons are as loud as they are powerful, however, often attracting especially dangerous zombies when they are used.

The following weapons are featured in the video game Dying Light:


"German 9mm Pistol"

The "German 9mm Pistol" resembles a hybrid of the Heckler & Koch USP and SIG-Sauer P228 with the addition of a slide-mounted safety and Heckler & Koch USP Tactical adjustable sights. It has an 8-round magazine capacity. In the opening cutscene, Kyle Crane uses one by shooting one of Rais' men after being attacked by them. A unique version of the pistol called "Rais's Gun" can be also found in the game, which functions as a three-round burst pistol instead of the default semi-automatic variant.

"American 9mm Pistol"

The "American 9mm Pistol" appears to be loosely based on the Browning BDA 380 with elements of a Bersa Thunder 9, it has a 15-round capacity.

Colt 1851 Navy (Cartridge Conversion)

The Colt 1851 Navy appears as the "Ranger" in the game, exclusive to The Following expansion pack. It is essentially the same gun from Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, another game developed by Techland. Unlike that game, it's somehow fired in double action while aiming down sights.

IMI/Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark XIX

A current production model Desert Eagle Mark XIX (as indicated by its top Picatinny rail and throwback safety design) with a blued finish and somewhat diminutive suppressor was added in December 2020 as part of the Classified Operation Bundle DLC pack. The magnum handgun is known as the "Torn Whisper" and, despite having been modeled after the .50 AE version of the Desert Eagle, holds an incorrect 8 rounds per magazine.

Firing a round. The skimpiness of the handgun's suppressor can be excused by the fact that this Desert Eagle seemingly fires 9mm Parabellum, as the size and shape of the ejected brass casing would suggest.
Eight rounds later and the handgun needs to be reloaded. In this freezeframe, Crane drops the old magazine (which is clearly still full of bullets).
Crane inserts a fresh magazine, providing a good view of the Desert Eagle's side (and fictitious markings) as he does so. Note also that the handgun's slide does not lock back on an empty magazine and that Crane does not chamber a round at any point during the animation.

Remington 1890

A unique Remington 1890 revolver with engravings, gold plated parts, and ivory grips can be found in The Following, appearing as the "Six-shooter". Like the other two revolvers, it can inaccurately fire in double action while aiming down sights.

Smith & Wesson Schofield Model 3

The Smith & Wesson Schofield Model 3 revolver with golden engravings, gold plated parts, and pearl grips appears as the "Quickshooter" and is a special quest reward in The Following. Like the "Ranger," it can inaccurately fire in double action while aiming down sights.

Submachine Guns

"Flea SMG"

The "Flea SMG" appears to be mainly resembled to be an IMI Uzi with elements of an Heckler & Koch MP7, such as its stock. It appears in the DLC entitled The Following in full-automatic and can hold 40 rounds. The SMG also appears with golden and camouflage variants.

IMI Uzi - 9x19mm
Heckler & Koch MP7A1 - 4.6x30mm

"Barrel SMG"

The "SMG" appears as a resembled hybrid of a Intratec TEC-9 and a M3 "Grease Gun". Also appearing in The Following, it fires in full-automatic and holds a 45 round capacity. Additional variants of the weapons include in gold, spray-paint, and engraved.

M3 "Grease Gun" - .45 ACP.
Intratec TEC-9 - 9x19mm


Double Barreled Shotgun

A 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun appears in the game as the "Double-Barrel Shotgun". Prior to The Following DLC, this was the only shotgun available in the game. It deals very high damage but has a very wide spread and has to be reloaded frequently; in other words, the weapon embodies a typical "video game double-barreled shotgun" almost perfectly. The double-barrel has several variants that can be found or crafted throughout the game and its DLC, although they are statistically identical to the base weapon:

  • Rusty Shotgun - A well-used shotgun with faded, dirty wooden furniture and plenty of visible rust
  • Composite Shotgun - A version of the weapon with a black polymer handguard and stock
  • Golden Double-Barrel Shotgun - An extra-glamorous gold-plated shotgun
  • Oathbreaker - An old-fashioned double-barrel with intricate engravings and a leather stock cover; craftable blueprint introduced in the Vintage Gunslinger Bundle (December 2017)
  • Sandstorm - A shotgun featuring a bloody bandage wrapped around the stock and custom paint job; craftable blueprint introduced in Content Drop #10 (May 2018)

Reloading the shotgun; it starts, refreshingly, with Crane operating the top-break lever.
Ejecting a pair of shells. The shells are modeled as unfired, however, and the same animation is used regardless if one or both barrels are fired.

A handmade variant of the Double-Barrel Shotgun known as the "Hellbeast" was introduced to the game in February 2020 as part of the 5th Anniversary Bundle DLC pack. It is a crude weapon constructed from bits of metal, duct tape, batteries, tin cans, and scrap electronics; despite this, it is actually more powerful and can fire faster than the standard double-barrel.

Demonstrating the DIY double-barrel versus a "Viral" zombie. Despite its name and the fact that each trigger-pull is accompanied by a large burst of flame and a shockwave, the Hellbeast neither deals fire damage nor sets enemies on fire.

"Hunting Shotgun"

The "Hunting Shotgun" appears in The Following DLC, mainly resembling a Remington 870 with a ribbed barrel and ghost ring-styled sights. It holds 6 rounds, functions as a pump shotgun, and is effective at medium range.

Remington 870 Express - 12 gauge

"Semi Automatic Shotgun"

The "Semi Automatic Shotgun" also appears in The Following DLC, mostly resembling a Benelli M3 Super 90 with hybrid elements of a SPAS-12. It holds 8 rounds, fires in semi-automatic, and is effective at close range.

Crane about to accept the reward for rescuing a survivor from the GRE elite soldiers. He's wielding the "Rusty Spine", which was added as a craftable skin for the semi auto shotgun in a free Halloween (2017) update. While the reward is pretty much worthless at this point, Crane is happy he only needs a few more Requisition Packs to unlock the costume and finally be able to cosplay as these goons...
The sights of the shotgun are slightly misaligned. Silhouettes of an MP5, M16, Glock, and Desert Eagle are pictured on the gun store sign.

Assault Rifles

"Police Rifle"

The "Police Rifle" in-game appears to mainly resemble a Bushmaster ACR receiver with incorporated elements of a SIG-Sauer SIG556, such as the SIG556's foregrip, iron sights, pistol grip, and charging handle/ejection port. It also features a Heckler & Koch-styled fixed stock, fires in semi-automatic, and uses 20-round STANAG magazines.

Aiming down the rifle's iron sights. Often done in video games to give the player a larger field of view while aiming, the rear aperture is excessively large.

"HTU 'Guardian' Rifle"

The "HTU 'Guardian' Rifle", which was added in February 2021 as part of the Harran Tactical Unit Bundle DLC pack, is essentially a hybrid of the "Police Rifle" and an M4 Carbine. It features the former's SIG556 foregrip and right side charging handle (allowing it to reuse the Police Rifle's animations) combined with an AR-15-style collapsing stock, "birdcage" flash hider, forward assist, and railed handguard. The 'Guardian' uses 25-round magazines and fires in 3-round bursts.

"Military Rifle"

The "Military Rifle" appears to resemble a Bushmaster ACR much more. It is fully-automatic and uses a 30-round STANAG magazine along with a Heckler & Koch MP5-styled retractable stock and a different foregrip.
