Left 4 Dead
The following weapons appear in the game Left 4 Dead:
Springfield Armory M1911-A1
The Springfield Armory M1911-A1 is the backup handgun for the survivors. A second one can be found randomly in-game and dual-wielded, though the second will lack an attached flashlight. Although they have some modern modifications added, like an extended thumb safety, beaver-tail grip safety, trigger with cutouts, checkered front strip, and Colt Commander ring-hammer, they keep the small and mediocre sights of the original M1911A1.
These 1911-A1s hold 15 rounds in a single magazine even though they are modelled as standard single-stack magazines that, at most, hold 8 rounds of .45 ACP that the in-game model claims they're chambered in (see screenshot below). As a low damaging, moderate DPS weapon, the 1911-A1 have an unlimited ammo reserve.
High Standard Model K-1200
The pump-action shotgun in the game seems to be modelled squarely from a High Standard Model K-1200 Riot Deluxe Model, but has the trigger guard of a Remington Model 870 Shotgun and an Ithaca 37 magazine tube end. This shotgun is a Tier 1 weapon, with it appearing as early-campaign weapons. Francis uses this weapon in the intro cinematic and during the game. The receiver has inscribed the fictional make of the shotgun named as "Renegade Rangemaster". It should noted that the developers meant it to be an ambiguous pump-action shotgun.
A full-sized Uzi submachine gun is a first tier weapon, sporting a decent rate of fire and an incorrect 50 round capacity while the gun itself is modelled with a 32-round magazine. It also has a usable flashlight tacked onto its handguard. In the game's opening cinematic, it is Louis' main weapon.
Benelli M4 Super 90
The Benelli M4 Super 90 is a second tier weapon with a 10-round magazine (which would require an extended magazine tube; the in-game weapon is modeled with the civilian legal 5-shot tube) and a flashlight clipped to the sling loop on the fore-end. If Francis is controlled by A.I, he will always equip a Benelli M4 whenever he finds one. Interestingly, the M4 and pump-action "Rangemaster" in-game are the only weapons that have both an empty and partial reload animation. Rather accurate as to how autoloaders are operated in reality, if the player empties their Benelli and immediately tries to fire the shotgun as it is being reloaded, there will be a delay with the player character stopping to rack the gun's bolt before they can fire. However, this would be inaccurate to the Benelli M4, as the shotgun is not locked open upon empty and the first shell would need to be dropped onto the lifter or into the chamber and the bolt release button pressed before the gun would allow the user to load the magazine. Furthermore, the design of the M4 prevents shells from feeding from the magazine to the lifter without pressing the shell release lever which is not touched, which would prevent the action of the bolt rack from doing anything useful.
The M16A2 is the only full-auto second tier firearm, found in later parts of a campaign. It takes 50 round magazines which are visually identical to a 30-round STANAG magazine. The flashlight on this weapon is clipped to its foregrip. The M16A2 in this game is fully automatic, though the real M16A2 fires only in semi-auto and 3-round bursts, with the A1 or A3 being full-auto capable in actuality. This suggests that the weapon is an M16A2 with an M16A1 lower receiver although its lower receiver is inscribed with "M16A2". If Bill or Louis is controlled by A.I, they will equip the rifle if found by them. Bill uses an M16A2 in the game's intro cinematic.
Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle
The Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle is a second tier gun that takes the "sniper" weapon role. It has an ammo capacity of 15 rounds despite being modelled with a 10-round magazine. The stock design suggests that its a pre-2005 model. Strangely enough, the Ruger combines the old, single-bladed front sight with a John Masen flash-hider and the post-2005 aperture rear sight. If an A.I bot controls Zoe in-game, she will pick up a Mini-14 as her primary weapon. It should also be noted that despite being referred to as the "Hunting Rifle" in-game, it was illegal to hunt with a semi-auto rifle in Pennsylvania at the time of the game's release and setting; this law was later changed.
GE M134 Minigun
A GE M134 Minigun, mounted on a monopod and set up behind sandbags, is usually found at the end of a campaign. It shreds almost all infected to pieces in seconds.
Despite its multi-barrel operation design to prevent this, it overheats rapidly with the barrel cluster turning red hot after only a few seconds of continuous fire, although this is presumably for game balancing purposes. It appears to be rendered with a 200-round ammo can which would empty in about four seconds in real life. In-game however, it has an infinite ammo supply and doesn't need to be reloaded.
The spade grips are mounted higher than normal in relation to the gun because they are attached to the same custom frame used for the Terminator 2 and Predator handheld Miniguns (minus the chainsaw grip/M60 handguard), rather than an actual minigun mount.
(Art) Custom HK MP5
The Heckler & Koch MP5 with a railed handguard with rail covers, a flash hider, an Aimpoint CompM2 sight, a Navy trigger group, and a folded PDW stock appears in most loading posters and several wallpapers/concept arts in the hands of Bill and Louis (Francis has the Mk. 18 instead, which would later be used in the posters for the sequel). Interestingly, a scrapped Counter-Strike: Global Offensive MP5 model also had a railed handguard with covers and a flash hider, but it was fitted with a normal A3 stock and S-E-F trigger group.
