Overlord (2018)

Overlord is a 2018 World War II horror film that focuses on a unit of US paratroopers on the eve of D-Day, who stumble upon a secret German laboratory that is experimenting on the citizens of a small French town. The film was directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) and was co-produced by J.J. Abrams.



The following weapons were used in the film Overlord (2018):

Handguns

M1911

Several of the American soldiers carry M1911 pistols as their standard issue sidearms. This pistol is used by Corporal Lewis Ford (Wyatt Russell), PFC Edward Boyce (Jovan Adepo), PFC Jacob Rosenfeld (Dominic Applewhite) and Private Morton Chase (Iain De Caestecker).

Submachine Guns

M1 Thompson

Corporal Lewis Ford (Wyatt Russell) carries an M1 Thompson as his primary weapon throughout the film, identifiable by its simplified rear L-sight.

MP40

The MP40 is used by many of the SS soldiers stationed at the bunker complex. Several of the weapons are also taken by the Allied raiding force and turned against their former owners. As is common in films, the MP40 is incorrectly portrayed as being the most common weapon carried by German troops, although it is at least somewhat conceivable that soldiers guarding a secret research facility may be issued with more of these than would be considered typical.

Rifles/Carbines

MG34

The MG34 is the principal machine gun used by the German forces guarding the bunker, seen both in sandbag emplacements and mounted on their vehicles. One of these is captured by the American troops and used by PFC Jacob Rosenfeld (Dominic Applewhite), who correctly identifies the machine gun as a two-man weapon when he is criticized for not reloading and firing more quickly. Several times in the film, the MG34 is referred to as the "buzzsaw" by American paratroopers; this nickname was actually given to the faster-firing MG42.
