Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
The "Solar Gun" can be obtained by getting all Boss Dolls after defeating the FROGS and BB Beast forms without using lethal weapons. The gun is a direct reference to the Kojima game Lunar Knights, a part of the Boktai series.

The gun itself is based on Aaron's "Knight" model, and requires the user to charge shots using sunlight, as you would in all Boktai games.
