The FN P90 is a personal defense weapon (PDW) featuring a compact bullpup design with an integrated reflex sight, a unique top-mounted magazine and fully ambidextrous controls. The weapon was designed and manufactured by FN Herstal in Belgium since 1990 (hence the "90" in its name).[1]

The P90 made it's debut in the Bond series beginning with the 1997 video game GoldenEye 007; the weapon then made it's first film appearance in The World Is Not Enough (1999), prominently used by the film's villain, Renard and his henchmen. Renamed for copyright reasons, the FN P90  has been subsequently featured as a weapon in numerous James Bond video games as the "RC-P90", "MB PDW 90", "Bequique PS100", "PS100", "Munitions Belga PDW90", "HS-90" and the "Vargen".

Video-game appearances

GoldenEye (video game)

The FN P90 appears in the popular Nintendo 64 GoldenEye game as the "RC-P90" featuring orange grips and a silver magazine which holds 80 rounds, which is the largest magazine capacity in the entire game, speculated to be a programming error[2]. It can be dual wielded, and was often considered 'overpowered' in Multi-Player. It is one of two weapons used by Xenia Onatopp in the 'Jungle' level, and also appears on the levels 'Caverns', and inside a crate on 'Train' when it is played on 'Agent' difficulty.

The World is Not Enough

The FN P90 appears in the game as the "MB PDW 90" in the Nintendo 64 version and as the "Bequique PS100" in the PlayStation version. In an unusual variation on a common mistake video games make with reloading the P90, the MB PDW 90 has Bond flip up the section of the receiver behind the magazine well in order to remove and replace the magazine.

Agent Under Fire

PS100 (Agent Under Fire)

Munitions Belgique PS100, as seen in Agent Under Fire (2001)

The FN P90 appears in various levels throughout the 2001 game Agent Under Fire, referred to as the "Munitions Belgique PS100". The instruction manual notes that it was built for the Belgian military and features a dorsal magazine that holds more rounds than the Ingalls Type 20 or the Koffler & Stock KS7. Its superior rate of fire makes the PS100 the most lethal submachine gun in the world.[3]

007: Nightfire

The FN P90 appears in the PC version of the game as the "Munitions Belga PDW90". It features a green finish on the stock and frame.

GoldenEye: Rogue Agent

The P90 is a common weapon carried by enemies in GoldenEye:Rogue Agent. It appears under the name "HS-90"and has a 50 round clip, but it is inaccurate at long ranges. It can be dual wielded by the player or by enemies.

GoldenEye (2010 video game)

The FN P90 appears as the "Vargen". It bears the real weapon's 50 bullet clip, though this can be expanded to 63 bullets with the gadget "high cap magazine". It is a mid-level SMG with a fast rate of fire and medium power. However, it is lacking in accuracy. The Vargen also has a long reload time. It appears in the single player, sometimes bearing a reflex sight, laser sight, or silencer. These same attachments can be equipped to it in the online mode, with the addition of n ACOG scope as well. The Vargen is unlocked at rank 30 in the online mode of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, and at rank 29 of GoldenEye 007 (2010).
