HK USP Match
The HK USP Match is a semi-automatic pistol by German weapons manufacturer Heckler & Koch (short HK). USP is a abbreviation of the German phrase Universale Selbstladepistole, literally universal self-loading pistol. Lara first uses this pistol in the first movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, in 2001.
In Tomb Raider Legend and Tomb Raider Underworld, which takes place after Legend in the Tomb Raider timeline, Lara will also carry this weapon in the games. She does not carry this gun in Tomb Raider Anniversary, which takes place in 1996.
In the first movie, as well as in the games, Lara uses a silver weapon with black grips and a black base of the shaft. In the Cradle of Life her guns are much larger and a darker grey all over, rather than silver and black.
