The first gun you get. It's very basic, and it only fires lethal rounds, but it's silenced, and it provides some good backup for the other gun you get, the SC20K.
This is the other gun you get, and it's a very good one. While not silenced, it not only has a sniper scope (R3 Button), but it can also fire nonlethal rounds (L1 Button) in addition to its traditional lethal ammo. You acquire this gun in the CIA Headquarters.
You can use these to distract and knock out guards. Press Circle to whistle with one of these, and press Square when a guard comes near to release a cloud of gas that renders them unconscious.

Hitting a guard with one of these will instantly knock him out. Fire one of these into water to knock out all guards who are standing in it at the same time.
