|Ready or Not
||December 18, 2021 (Early Access)
||Tactical First-Person Shooter
Ready or Not (or RoN) is an upcoming tactical first-person shooter video game, being developed and published by VOID Interactive, a New Zeland based company. The game places the player in the role of a SWAT team leader, in a "Nondescript Modern America" and fictional city called "Los Suenos" (heavily based on the Los Angeles, California area). The SWAT team is part of the Los Suenos Police Department (LSPD), but players with the Supporter Edition can play as FBI HRT operators. It has a focus on the singleplayer and coop campaign but is also planned to feature a PVP multiplayer side with an alternate story and game modes. It is considered a spiritual successor to SWAT 4 and original Rainbow Six games.
In 2020, a closed alpha version featuring PVP gameplay was released to the game's backers. In 2021, the game became listed on Steam, and a public Early Access version was released, featuring only singleplayer and co-op modes. Several weapons from earlier Closed Alpha and Early Access versions were removed in later updates; information on those weapons can be found on the talk page.
The following weapons appear in the video game Ready or Not (VG):
In Ready or Not, the player's equipment and weapons are chosen at a pre-mission startup. The player can carry two firearms (primary and sidearm), a primary long tactical device, as well as multiple grenades and other tactical deployables. Similar to other games, most notably SWAT 4, the primary weapon slot is reserved for long guns such as rifles, submachine guns, and shotguns, but also less-lethal guns. The secondary slot is reserved for handguns and tasers. The third slot is reserved for tactical devices such as a mirrorgun (similar to the "Optiwand" from SWAT 4), breaching shotgun, ballistic shields, battering ram, and compact grenade launchers.
Most firearms that appear have multiple different combination of attachments. Lethal firearms can accept either full metal jacket or hollow point ammunition. Several of the firearms in-game have knock-off names to avoid copyright conflicts and some of the in-game attachments have slight modifications from their real life counterparts to avoid licensing issues as well.
Fire selectors are usable and fully animated in-game. Holding the selector key also allows one to set their firearm in "safe" (which is animated correctly on certain firearms, while others simply default to the selector switch staying on semi or auto).
Beretta 92X Performance
The Beretta 92X Performance appears in Ready or Not under the name "P92X". It was added in the January 2022 update, and replaced the Beretta 92FS (see talk page). Unlike its predecessor version, the 92X can mount an optic, despite it not being the RDO version. Quick, simple, effective, the jack of all trades pistol for the SWAT team.

Official rendered image of the Beretta 92X in-game model. Note the "GFLHG003" serial number; "GFL" refers to Girls' Frontline
, and "HG003" is is the index number of the M9 T-Doll in GFL.

The Colt M45A1 appears as a sidearm option in Ready or Not. Heavy set, the M45A1 relies on high power and accuracy over capacity to deal with suspects.

Thumbing the slide stop after inserting a new magazine.
The Colt Python appears in Ready or Not simply as the ".357 MAGNUM", as the largest caliber handgun in the police equipment lineup, as well as being used by certain low and high-level AI suspects. Powerful, loud and slow on return shots, the Python is good for making one shot count. It does not have a unique tactical reload animation; all unfired rounds will still be dumped out on the ground and lost from the inventory.

The FN Five-seveN appears in Ready or Not as a player weapon. High mag capacity with low power, but good penetration, the FN Five-Seven makes a good backup sidearm for more risky primary options.

Glock 19 (Gen 5)
The Glock 19 Gen 5 appears in Ready or Not under the name "G19". It was added in the January 2022 update, replacing the Glock 19 Gen 4 (see talk page). The generic sidearm, good in every aspect. It is also a commonly used weapon by both low and high-level suspects.

Heckler & Koch USP Tactical
The Heckler & Koch USP Tactical appears in-game as the "USP45" (previously named "USP Tactical"), fitted with a pair of Heinie SlantPro luminous sights. The middle ground between the Glock 19 and the M45A1, this is for dealing with targets in 1-2 shots without worrying about slim mag sizes.

The Brügger & Thomet MP9-N appears in Ready or Not simply as the "MP9", and was added as part of the 28 June 2022 patch (EA 21474).

Heckler & Koch MP5/10
The H&K MP5/10 appears in Ready or Not as the "MP5/10MM", and was added as part of the 28 June 2022 patch (EA 21474). The in-game model features the KAC MP5 RAS handguard and wraparound toprail mount that attaches at the rear of the handguard's side rails.

Heckler and Koch MP5A3
The H&K MP5A3 appears in Ready or Not simply as the "MP5A3", and was added as part of the 28 June 2022 patch (EA 21474). The in-game model has the Picatinny top claw mount and the KAC MP5 RAS handguard.

Heckler and Koch MP5A4
The Heckler & Koch MP5A4 appears in Ready or Not, incorrectly named the "MP5A2" despite the Navy A4 trigger pack. It also is occasionally used by AI suspects. The MP5A4 reload animation is missing the notorious "H&K Slap", the SWAT operators instead opting to palm the bolt and drop it down rather than outright smack it. The seemingly boring SMG option, the MP5's controllable full auto fire and 3-round burst make it a perfect low risk scenario choice.

, equipped with Midwest Industries MLOK handguard and KAC foregrip. In the Jun 29 version, all foregrip options for the weapon aside from a Surefire 328LMF-B handguard were removed, meaning that it is no longer possible to have an MP5A4 set up like this in-game.

Heckler and Koch UMP45
The Heckler & Koch UMP45 appears in Ready or Not. In a rarely seen bit of realism, the reload of the UMP uses the bolt release instead of most games that use the H&K Slap. With a slow ROF and a high climb rate, the UMP is a powerful piece if you can keep it controlled.

The SIG-Sauer MPX appears in Ready or Not, as the last of the current selectable SMGs in-game, as well as a suspect weapon. Faster reload than the MP5, a little bit smaller but a lot faster, the MPX is a potent piece in the right hands.

Shotguns in Ready or Not can use less-lethal beanbag rounds, slugs, and buckshot.
The Benelli M4 appears in Ready or Not simply as the "M4 SUPER 90". A high speed shotgun, the Benelli is good for laying down pellets as fast as possible. It is also used by high-level suspects.

Beretta 1301 Tactical
The Beretta 1301 appears in Ready or Not as the "B1301", and was added as part of the 28 June 2022 patch (EA 21474). The gun features a supporter-only version called "B1301 ENTRYMAN" (known in earlier official materials as "FBI-HRT Edition").

Mossberg 500 Cruiser
The Mossberg 500 Cruiser appears as a tactical device under the name "Breaching Shotgun". Like the name suggests, it's one of the three options for breaching doors, less lethal to the targets of the room than C2 charges, but faster than kicking it down. It's borderline unusable as an actual weapon, as breaching rounds are frangible projectiles that quickly disintegrate after being fired.

Wilson Combat CQB
The Wilson Combat CQB shotgun, a customized Remington Model 870, appears as the "870 CQB". A classic police issue weapon, powerful on light targets and still useful once armor gets involved.

Wilson Combat Less Lethal CQB
The Wilson Combat Less Lethal CQB appears as the "Beanbag Shotgun". While not as fast as either of the pepperball launchers, the Beanbag shotgun incapacitates targets regardless of them wearing a mask.

A customized, select-fire-converted Arsenal SLR-107UR carbine was added as a SWAT weapon in the January 2022 update, under the name "SLR47"; it is fitted with an UltiMAK AKS-74U rail, a StormWerkz Scope Mount adapter on the rear sight, an ALG trigger, and an aftermarket pistol grip and muzzle device, and feeds from 30-round Magpul AK PMags. A heavy hitter of a rifle, the SLR trades off accuracy in favor of close quarters punch with a surprisingly controllable full-auto.

Official rendered image of the "SLR47" in-game model; aside from the serial number, the markings read "SLR 47UA" (effectively confirming its identity), and "Cal. 7.45x39mm" below that, seemingly indicating that someone wasn't sure whether they wanted a 7.62 or 5.45 AK.

FN SCAR-L CQC
The FN SCAR-L CQC is added in the the January 2022 update under the name "MK16", equipped with a Parker Mountain Machine Picatinny Rail Extension and a VLTOR Receiver Extension / Stock Adapter. Powerful, accurate and controllable, a good all-around rifle.

Heckler & Koch HK416A5
The Heckler & Koch HK416A5 assault rifle appears in Ready or Not. It is modified with a Geissele 10.5" Super Modular Rail handguard, Magpul MBUS Pro sights, Magpul MOE Carbine Stock and a Raptor charging handle. Short but not too short, controllable to boot, the HK416 is a very handy rifle. As of 28 June 2022 patch (EA 21474), the in-game name for the HK416A5 was changed to "GA416".

. "65" is the index number of the HK416 T-Doll character, and "404" is the name of the unit (Squad 404) that HK416 is a member of in the story.

Heckler & Koch G36C
The Heckler & Koch G36C is added in the the February 2022 update, equipped with a Brugger & Thomet quad rail handguard and KAC G36 flip-up sight with optic rail. The G36C was originally featured in the 2020 PVP build, where it had a different model.

Knight's Armament SR-16 CQB
The Knight's Armament SR-16 CQB assault rifle appears in Ready or Not, equipped with Magpul furniture and a set of KAC folding sights. The longest of the main assault rifles, the SR-16 leverages accuracy and controllability to compensate.

Mk 18 Mod 0
The Mk 18 Mod 0 appears in Ready or Not, incorrectly named the "M4A1". The in-game base model features a KAC RIS handguard and an LMT Crane stock. Loud, flashy and effective, the M4A1 is a compact rifle for the job. It is also used by high-level suspects.
Mk 18 Mod 0 - 5.56x45mm NATO

Wilson Combat SBR Tactical
The Wilson Combat SBR Tactical assault rifle appears in Ready or Not under the moniker "ARWC". Quiet when suppressed and very effective against targets, the ARWC is a potent tool in the right hands. The weapon was initially named "SBR-300" and chambered in .300 Blackout, was renamed to "SBR-556" and changed to 5.56x45mm NATO in the January 2022 update, and was renamed again to "ARWC" in the February 2022 update.

Heckler & Koch M320
The Heckler & Koch M320 appears in Ready or Not simply as the "M320". It was featured in the 2020 PVP Build, was removed from the game, and was then re-added in the March 2022 update. The M320 can be equipped as a primary long tactical device (cannot be modified via the gun bench), available with either Stinger balls, CS gas or flashbang grenades as options, carrying one in the pipe and 3 in reserve.

The Milkor MGL appears in the March 2022 update as a primary weapon, loaded with six flashbang grenades, trading a more reliable primary arm in favor of the ability to instantly flashbang a target.
Pre-Early Access, it was claimed that the selectable grenade types for the MGL include non-lethal, rubber baton rounds, CS rounds, and smoke rounds, like Ready or Not's inspiration game S.W.A.T. 4.

Checking the cylinder. There is currently no system to allow for extra 40mm grenades, so there is no reload animation implemented in the public build of the game.
Grenades in Ready or Not take up their own individual slots in the player character's inventory. They can be held in the player's hands until deployment and can be thrown underhanded or overhanded.
M7A3 CS Gas Grenade
The M7 CS gas grenades appears in-game as just the "CS Grenade", although the markings explicitly state it's the A3 version. It releases CS gas, and incapacitates anyone not wearing a gas mask, including you and your teammates.
A preview image for the CS Grenade in Ready or Not
M84 Stun Grenade
The M84 Stun Grenade is a less-lethal grenade that explodes with a deafening noise and a blinding flash of light.
A preview image for the Flashbang Grenade in Ready or Not
Model 9590 Stingball
The Model 9590 Sting-Ball Grenade appears in-game as the "Stingball Grenade" and is another selectable throwable for the SWAT team to use. This operates in a similar fashion to a frag grenade, albeit filled with pellets of OC pepper instead of actual lead. While effective in incapacitating targets, or unsuspecting teammates, the grenade is also the most lethal of the three throwables.

The VKS (Variable Kinetic System) compressed-air launcher by PepperBall (a brand name of United Tactical Systems) is added in the January 2022 update as the "R7 Launcher". While it lacks full-auto like the TAC-700, the VKS's rails allow for a much wider bit of customization.

The M26 Taser makes an appearance in Ready or Not and simply named "TASER", as a less-lethal sidearm option, incapacitating the targets it strikes. The game also features the Taser series' ability to be used as melee weapons by striking targets with its exposed contacts. It is also featured with its built-in laser module that can be switched on.

The following list of weapons are featured in Ready or Not as non-usable weapons, instead are used by suspects, appear as pieces of evidence, or as booby traps. Several of these weapons were previously introduced as usable SWAT weapons in older builds of the game prior to the Early Access, but later removed for various reasons. It is likely that few of them are planned to be reintroduced once again as usable weapons in the future.
An old-school Colt M1911 appears as a suspect weapon in Ready or Not.
The Glock 18 appears in-game rarely as an NPC sidearm, under the label "G18 AUTO".

The Makarov PM appears in Ready or Not simply as the "MAKAROV" and used by low-level suspects. Its appearance in America is odd given the Makarov's more commonly found with collectors in the states than criminal syndicates, although it could allude to the gun's commonality in black markets in places like Asia or England.

The Walther MPL appears in Ready or Not simply as the "MPL" and is used by high-level suspects. It is a bit of a strange choice given the setting - Walther MPLs aren't terribly common in the United States, least of all in the underground market.

The Model 1897 in-game, dropped by a suspect. Note the heatshield and bayonet lug.
