Video Game Guns: From the Console to the Display Case


Video games generally reside in a world of fantasy. However, some of their technical aspects are rooted in reality – and history. Such is the case with Call of Duty: World at War. Released in 2008, this game takes place primarily in World War II, with action taking place both in the Pacific and the Soviet Union.

The firearms and other weapons utilized in this game are historic, naturally, since it takes place some 70 years ago. As such, many of the guns are represented in the NRA Museums’ collection. Here are some examples of real-life firepower you can see on display in the museum galleries:


With dozens of guns featured in this game, our list could go on and on. Come by the museum galleries and see if you can spot the guns mentioned here – and plenty others that aren’t mentioned but also used in Call of Duty: World at War.
