Shadow Warrior (1997)

Shadow Warrior is a 1997 first-person shooter from 3D Realms. A remake, also titled Shadow Warrior was released in 2013.

The following weapons appear in the video game Shadow Warrior:

Riot Gun

The Riot Gun is a four-barreled shotgun that vaguely resembles a Pancor Jackhammer. It holds 52 shells, reloads every 4 shots, and can fire one or four shells at a time.

The Uzi appears in the game as the high-velocity firing gun, and is the most commonly used gun among the enemies in the game. It has an ammo cap of 200 rounds, with 50 in each magazine, and can be dual-wielded. Each tap of the fire button will fire a three-round burst (six if dual-wielded) and holding down the button will make it fire in full-auto. Lo Wang refers to the director John Woo after the Uzis are dual-wielded: "Be proud, Mr. Woo!". For whatever reason, the first person sprites depict the gun with the stock, but the pickups are lacking it entirely.

Reloading the Uzi. There is no animation showing Lo Wang chambering a round, but having a reload animation alone was a huge thing back in '97. Also, as with the pistol in Duke Nukem 3D, reloading is done automatically after 50 shots (100 if dual-wielded) and there is no possibility to reload manually.

Missile Launcher

The Missile Launcher in the game is a rocket launcher similar to a M202 FLASH rocket launcher. It can fire five heat seeking missiles if supplied with a heat seeker card, and a small atomic bomb if a nuclear warhead is available. It holds 50 missiles.

When picking up the Railgun, protagonist Lo Wang refers to the movie Eraser, by saying "Time to get erased!". It fires metal rods at near light speed and can damage several enemies if they're lined up. It holds 20 rods.
