    Basically Transformers Masterpiece Megatron MP-05 had come with the gun, calling it "Blitzwing's gun"

    It's just called a "blaster" on MP Megatron's instructions.

    The answer is, it's just a generic blaster designed for the moment. It doesn't match any existing Decepticon's weapon.

    I always assumed it was Blitzwing's due to the color.

    I figured it was one of those generic pistols they came up with because Megatron needed a weapon he could grab. Like whenever a character who's toy didn't have a gun would get a sci-fi pistol.

    Me too. :) 

    I can't read Japanese but I'll be using my phone to read it. I got the box out too.

    Nope sorry
    Unless you're reading it in Japanese , neither the Box or instructions say anything about it being blitzwings gun in English

    It might be the right color but it's the wrong shape and Design

    Given that he transforms into a gun, it's a weird moment when you think about it; his actions all to pick up a gun that he probably turns into a superior version of.

    Anyway, the answer is generic movie gun B type. Or Feralstorms answer, because that adds up.

    A gobot. It makes sense.

    It paved the way for cybertronian mode. From a secret order of bad transforming toys. :lol 

    By the way, from the looks of it there is no such thing as a generic gun in TFs. Looking at tfu.info, you can ID the guns to its rightful owner.

    Air raid/Fireflight's gun?

    :D

    I always thought it was a special gun, as it was able to hurt Optimus Prime and kill him. If it wasn't, there was no need to use a gun but just transform into gun mode. Doesn't Megatron originally pull the gun out of nowhere? From there where Optimus hides his trailer? :lol

    There certainly is. It's when the animators make up a gun rather than basing it on a toy accessory. It happened quite regularly.

    I don't know why, but I always assumed it was Shrapnel's.

    Whoever dropped that gun, needs to own up. I bet they feel really guilty.

    Funny but Megatron spotted it underneath some rubble that made it where Optimus couldn't see it from the front but Hot Rod could from where he was.

    As for who's gun it could be, well there were a lot of Transformers on both sides that got beat up, but based on it's placement I think it could be possible that it could have been an Autobot's.
