Looking closer at the picture there is some writing on the gun. I don't know what it means and some of the words are unclear. But I can make out Sashimer And Words. Whatever that means :smileyfrustrated:

So basically it's a parody of Smith & Wesson?

True Balance:
We felt that the Hunting Rifle wasn’t effective enough at mid-range due to its very slow fire rate. While every weapon doesn’t have to be as effective at every range, so much combat occurs at short to mid ranges in The Last of Us that we felt the Hunting Rifle felt was not effective in enough situations. By increasing its damage the Hunting Rifle user is now more likely to get a down on a wounded player, or can combo a Hunting Rifle with a pistol to try and fight effectively at mid-range.

Smith & Wesson is a type of gun brand, like this one:

 

 

Chloe's Tau besides the scope, looks pretty similar to it. So I'm assuming the words on the tau is basically a play on words of the real life smith & wesson.
