The Beretta Model 93R is a selective-fire machine pistol, designed and manufactured by the Italian Beretta company in the 1970s for police and military use, that is derived from their semi-automatic Model 92. The "R" stands for Raffica, which means "burst" in Italian.
It is a burst-fire machine pistol firing 9x19mm Parabellum cartridges. Its box magazine is designed to hold 20 rounds. It was planned to be issued to many law enforcement units all over the world, but only made it in Italy.
A selector switch and a folding fore grip enables the operator to fire three-round bursts (at a cyclic rate of 1100 rounds per minute) with each pull of the trigger. The designers restricted the fire selector to bursts, rather than fully automatic firing, for sufficient recoil control. The 93R is essentially a Beretta 92 series pistol, but its design calls for a single action trigger, a muzzle brake, a detachable shoulder stock, and a 20-round magazine. The folding grip, just ahead of the trigger guard, provides enhanced recoil control. With use of this grip, the operator's hands are further spaced, providing increased stability.

This weapon can't be used by the player, although Faith is seen shooting a City Protection Force cop with it while jumping of a building in one of the trailers. Only two NPC's are seen wielding it throughout the game, which are Celeste in her Icarus disguise at the end of the Boat, and Jacknife holding Kate at gunpoint at the end of the Shard.
