Predators is the third installment in the Predator movie franchise that began with 1987's Predator and continued with 1990's Predator 2. The 2010 sequel stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who finds himself stranded on a strange planet along with seven other human 'predators'. The film was directed by Nimród Antal (Armored) and was produced by Robert Rodriguez.

See the Discussion section for behind the scenes images from the film.


The following weapons were used in the film Predators (2010):

AA-12

Royce (Adrien Brody) carries an AA-12 automatic 12 Gauge shotgun throughout the movie. The shotgun is fitted with a drum magazine loaded with Frag-12 rounds, and fitted with a Surefire M900 weaponlight foregrip. The custom camo job appears to be similar to the US Army's pixelized UCP pattern.

In this shot we can see the Surefire M900 weaponlight. At this angle, the "custom camo paint" on his AA-12 appears to be ACU CAMO Form carefully wrapped around the weapon. You can see how the form creates sharp angles and is also peeling a bit around the ejection port. Also, the form creases down a bit where the rounded edges should be on either side.

M134 Hand held Minigun

Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov), a member of the Spetsnaz Alpha Group carries a hand-held M134 Minigun substituting for a GShG-7.62, or a Slostin machine gun that is described in the script, reminiscent of the gun used by Jesse Ventura in the original film. When Nikolai first uses the Minigun a stoppage occurs. Nikolai is forced to fix the jam and reload the weapon. Nikolai later uses the Minigun to slay two Predator hounds and to lay down suppressing fire on Predators before the gun is destroyed in battle by a well aimed shot from a Predator Plasmacaster.

During a lot of the firing scenes the barrels appear as if they are stationary. Likely the weapon had a fire rate very close to the film frame rate making the barrels appear to not rotate. During the non-firing scenes Taktarov carries a very obviously non-firing replica. The most obvious telltale sign is that there is no central shaft attaching the four barrel clamp discs on the non-firing prop.

Interesting to note about this film is that the Minigun's power supply appears to be stored in the actor's backpack. There is a brief scene in the Predator camp where the actor fires the gun while walking and the power cables can be seen leading from the gun and into the backpack.

Airsoft handheld M134 Minigun with 'Chainsaw grip' to handle the recoil force. This variant was seen in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. This is an airsoft version which retains the half-circle attachment point for the M60 foregrip from Predator; the real T2 minigun did not have this - (fake) 7.62x51mm NATO

Blaser R93 LRS2

Isabelle (Alice Braga), an IDF sniper, carries a Blaser R93 Sniper Rifle fitted with an Elcan DigitalHunter scope (substituting for the Heckler & Koch PSG1 described in the script). In several scenes, we hear the scope adjusting even though she isn't hitting any of the buttons. Note: this is due to an auto-focus feature on the scope, not an error in the movie. Isabelle uses this weapon to take down Predator hounds and uses it to wound a Predator near the film's finale. She also attempts to take down another hunted alien but after what appears to be a great shot at a fast moving target, she notes that she actually missed.

AKMS

Mombasa (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), a member of an RUF death squad, carries an AKMS rifle with the stock folded up throughout the movie, he once uses it to save Stans from an attacking Predator Hound when they first encounter them.

Heckler & Koch MP5K

Cuchillo (Danny Trejo), a Mexican Drug Cartel enforcer, carries two Heckler & Koch MP5K's fitted with braided leather covers on the foregrips strapped to his back, in a manner similar to Chuck Norris' Micro Uzi harness in Invasion U.S.A..

Heckler & Koch HK45

Isabelle (Alice Braga) carries a Heckler & Koch HK45 with a custom compensator as her sidearm in the film. She carries it in a custom holster. She most notably uses it during the attack of the Predator hounds.

Custom Beretta 92FS Inox

Hanzo (Louis Changchien) carries a customized Beretta 92FS Inox with ivory grips as his sidearm. The compensator was custom built by armorer Steve Karnes (AKA Phoenixent). The Yakuza assassin uses it until he acquires a katana from Noland's weapon cache.

M1911A1

When the group stumble upon a dead American soldier, he is grasping an empty M1911A1 with the slide locked back. Mombasa (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali) also uses a plain M1911A1 as his sidearm, and most notably uses it during the standoff between him and Stans (Walton Goggins).

Cuchillo (Danny Trejo) also carries an engraved, nickel plated M1911A1as his sidearm. The gun also has golden accents on the safety, and on the slide release. He is seen using it when his MP5K's run empty during the attack of the Predator hounds.

Royce (Adrien Brody) also uses a customized M1911A1 as his sidearm. Altough, the weapon is not seen clear enough to determine the make and model, the gun has at least Novak sights, beavertail grip safety, and a combat hammer. It has also been fitted with pearl grips.

Kimber Warrior - .45 ACP. This looks very similar to the gun Royce uses.

Tokarev TT-33

Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov) carries a Tokarev TT-33 as his sidearm in the film. After his Minigun is destroyed by one of the Predators, he switches to his sidearm. He fires it at a Predator in Noland's hideout when he goes back to save Edwin.

Mk 2 hand grenade

Several Mk 2 hand grenades are seen among the weapons in Noland's (Laurence Fishburne) arsenal. Royce (Adrien Brody) later strings several of them together in a trap for the 'Berserker' Predator.

M18A1 Claymore

When Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov) sees Noland's weapons cache, he eyes a M18A1 Claymore anti-personnel mine on the table. Nikolai apparently grabbed the Claymore mine offscreen, because he is seen using it prominently later.

Webley No.1 Mk. V Signal Pistol

A Webley No.1 Mk. V Signal Pistol fitted with a custom barrel shroud is also seen in Noland's weapon cache. Royce (Adrien Brody) takes and uses the flare gun later on in the film.

Noland's weapons cache

When the group are taken to Noland's (Laurence Fishburne) cave, they see he's collected a mixture of weapons, some human and some alien. There's also a 26.5mm Flare launcher which is used later in the film.
