SDF Soldiers with Type 89 rifles

  • There are additional firearms that appear in the game but cannot be used by the player. Tomoaki Nagahama has a Colt-1911 type pistol. Tetsuo Nikaido is seen with a firearm resembling a SIG Sauer P230 compact pistol. Police officers and some thugs have Nambu Model 60 revolvers. The SDF soldiers (including Misuzu Asagi) use HOWA Type 89 rifles. DD's weapon of choice is a Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver.
  • Two of Majima's shotguns have the number 56 in the title. This is a reference to the fact that Majima's given name Goro shares the same syllables with the Japanese numbers 5 (go) and 6 (roku).
  • The remote control for the satellite laser appears to be based on an iPhone. Incidentally, this makes it the only smartphone on the game, as everyone else is still using flip-phones.
  • Kiryu's unique weapon is the only one of the four protagonists' unique weapons to be in a class of its own, with no other weapon that uses the same type of ammo in-game.
  • During a chase sequence, Kiryu uses a machine gun mounted on top of a Komatsu Light Armored Vehicle (LAV), whose model is simply a rehashing of his Anti-Materiel Rifle but without the scope. Strangely, the developers had already modeled the correct Browning M2HB machine gun that would go on top of this LAV on the tanks that appear in the game.
