TriviaEdit

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Lockdown

  • The M249 SPW in-game is named incorrectly, as the weapon is a M249 Paratrooper. This is evident by its STANAG magazine located well below the belt.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 1 and 2.

  • In Vegas 1, the M249 SPW is Kan's signature weapon.
  • The sights are incorrectly misaligned in-game. In reality, if the sights were misaligned in this way, your shots would be above your point of aim.
  • In-game, the M249 SPW is named incorrectly. The real M249 SPW has a Para-type collapsible stock but the one in game has an E2-style butt-stock. Interestingly, the weapon select screen shows the correct para-type collapsible stock.
