...b/c its different from the old sc-20k, so it would be called the sc-20L or something

SC-20L? It's the same gun, it's just been modified and enhanced.

The game (along with tons of other games) give it a fake name so that they don't have to purchase a liscense with the manufacturer to feature the weapon 'officially' in their game.

my only problem with the weapons name is the SC isnt that a common abreviation for Splinter Cell?

FN F2000 SD with grenade launcher and electronic sight. The F2000 is fully ambidextrous and modifiable, so you can add silencers, grenade launchers, electronic sniper sights, reflex sights, shotgun attatchment, foregrip, less-than-lethal launcher to name a few.

SC-20k actually means Splinter Cell 2000 (I think) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Serial Jon has the right of it. If they called it an F2000, they have' to pay a licensing fee to FN Herstal to use it. This way, they don't. Who knows, the changes to the design might be due to a complaint from FNH, because now it doesn't look EXACTLY like their F2000. Other games have done the same. Any of you played Far Cry? Their "Jungle Falcon" .357 automatic looks suspiciously like a Desert Eagle. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

i guess the best example would be Counter Strike, for example the Cv-47 instead of the Ak-47 ^^

You know, that particular example I find to be strange. Normally any weapon that's actually in use or development by a national military is fair game. How many times have you seen an M16, M4, M8, OICW, G36, AK, or what have you in games? They're all over. It's just the commercial only products that are off limits except via a license. The F2000 is sold by FNH, to law enforcement and military organizations only, but no military has adopted it yet as a primary weapon.

There was a time (beta 5 , beta 6.x and up until CS 1.0) when CS didn't have those weird names for guns. But those were times long gone (actually about 4-5 years ago)... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
