The following weapons were used in the film The Dark Knight Rises:
The Beretta 92FS is the sidearm of several Gotham City Police officers as well as some of Bane's mercenaries. In the stock exchange robbery, the henchman posing as a food delivery guy uses a Beretta 92FS to shoot a trader. While a bullet hit is seen, the pistol itself isn't seen cycling. Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) is also seen with a Beretta while fighting some thugs and mercenaries on the rooftop. One of the Bane's mercenaries (Christopher Judge) is seen pulling what appears to be Beretta when he is about to execute John Blake.

GCPD Officer John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) carries a Glock 17 throughout the film, as do most of the other GCPD officers. Deputy Commissioner Peter Foley (Matthew Modine) carries a Glock 17 as his sidearm. In the stock exchange heist, Bane can be seen disarming one of the lobby security guards of a Glock pistol. A Glock is also put to the head of John Blake when he enters the hospital room of Commissioner Gordon. Gordon (Gary Oldman) is later seen carrying a Glock in his holster, replacing the Sig P226 he lost earlier in the film.

Heckler & Koch G36Cs are the main weapons used by the mercenaries employed by Bane (Tom Hardy). Deputy Commissioner Foley (Matthew Modine) also fires a G36C while engaging Bane's men.
