Transformers is the 2007 live-action film based on the popular Hasbro toy franchise. Directed by Michael Bay, the film centers around two factions from a race of alien mechanical lifeforms, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, as both seek out a powerful object known as the "All Spark" hidden somewhere on Earth. The cast included Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, and Jon Voight. The Transformers saga continued onscreen with 2009's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, 2011's Transformers: Dark of the Moon and 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction and 2017's Transformers: The Last Knight.
Please visit here for some non gun-related trivia on the film.
The following weapons were used in the film Transformers (2007):
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
A Beretta 92FS can be seen in the hands of a police officer who arrests Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) when he reports his car stolen. Beretta 92FS pistols are also seen as the sidearms of most of the Special Ops soldiers accompanying Captain Lennox (Josh Duhamel). The pistol is likely standing in for the US Army standard issue Beretta M9 in the case of the latter.
ACWO Jorge "Fig" Figueroa (Amaury Nolasco
) appears to carry a Beretta 92FS in his holster.
A police officer aims his Beretta 92FS at Sam as he arrests him, using the Harries technique to level his gun and flashlight together.

) is apprehended by the FBI, the agent seen here appears to carry a Glock 17 in his holster.
Para 1911 G.I. Expert
Captain Lennox (Josh Duhamel) can be seen carrying a Para 1911 G.I. Expert pistol as his sidearm in a Serpa-retention holster, and uses it to threaten Agent Simmons (John Turturro) and other Sector 7 agents during the standoff.
Para 1911 G.I. Expert - .45 ACP.
Captain Lennox (Josh Duhamel
) aims his Para 1911 G.I. Expert at Sector Seven personnel.
Captain Lennox threatens Agent Simmons with his Para 1911 G.I. Expert. Note the skeletonized hammer, extended slide-stop safety, and a beavertail grip safety. (Note that by pushing the 1911 into Simmons' chest, Lennox has unintentionally pushed the slide backwards slightly, out of battery - note the misalignment between the rear of the slide and the top of the frame. This would render the weapon incapable of firing.)
Secret Service agents onboard Air Force One can be seen using SIG-Sauer P226 pistols as their sidearms (a factual error: The United States Secret Service never used the P226, only the P228 and P229 in 9mm and recently switched to the .357 SIG because it has more stopping power). The Sheriff at the police station (Rick Gomez) also brandishes a P226 while threatening Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) during his interrogation.

Heckler & Koch MP5KA4
Heckler & Koch MP5KA4s are seen being used by Secret Service agents onboard Air Force One, as well as a few Sector 7 agents (notably Brian Stepanek) when meeting the Autobots, who are quickly disarmed of their weapons by Jazz (voice of Darius McCrary).

A Secret Service agent does an "HK-slap" on a Heckler & Koch MP5KA4 on board Air Force One.
A Sector Seven Agent (Brian Stepanek) readies his MP5KA4 as the Autobots surround the car. A few seconds after this shot we see a few more Sector 7 agents aiming MP5Ks as well.
Actor Brian Stepanek (seen on the far right) was worried that when the rubber MP5K he was holding was yanked from his hand with a wire to imitate Jazz's high-powered magnet, the gun would hit him in the face.
He was assured this would not happen, yet note in these shots how he holds his face in pain after receiving a rubber gun to the face.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
FBI agents are seen armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine guns during the raid on Glen's (Anthony Anderson) home, fitted with Surefire 628 dedicated forend weaponlights and Navy trigger groups. Sector 7 agents can also be seen brandishing these in their first meeting with the Autobots, but are promptly disarmed by Jazz's powerful magnet. During the standoff between Captain Lennox's team and Sector Seven at the Hoover Dam, one of Duhamel's men (Brian Shehan) can be seen smacking a Sector 7 soldier in the face with the butt of an MP5A3 fitted with RIS rails, dual mag clamp, and an M68 Aimpoint red dot scope.

Colt Model 933
Captain Lennox (Josh Duhamel) can be seen carrying a Colt Model 933 carbine as his weapon of choice in Qatar, distinguishable from the M4A1's carried by his men by the shorter 11.5" barrel. His weapon is fitted with an Aimpoint CompM2 red dot and AN/PVS-14 night vision scope, a Surefire M900 weaponlight foregrip, Vltor MOD stock, Yankee Hill Manufacturing Phantom Flash Supressor, and an AN/PEQ-2 IR designator (which inaccurately emits the same visible green laser as those on his men's M4A1's).

There are several appearances throughout the early stages of the film of M4A1 Carbines, used by US military personnel at the US Special Operations Command Central (SOCCENT) base during Blackout's attack, as well as by Captain William Lennox (Josh Duhamel)'s Delta team. The M4A1s used by the special forces team are fitted with various SOPMOD accessories including ACOG scopes, AN/PEQ-2 IR designators (which are erroneously shown emitting a laser beam that can be seen by the naked eye instead of the real AN/PEQ-2's invisible Infra-Red laser), RIS foregrips, and camouflage paint schemes.

Custom Mossberg 590
A heavily-customized Mossberg 590 (similar to one seen in 2008's Rambo) is used by Agent Simmons (John Turturro) and Maggie Madsen (Rachael Taylor) to fend off Frenzy at the Sector 7 headquarters. The shotgun has a heat shield, Magpul M93A rear stock attached to a Mesa Tactical M4 adapter block, and a Mesa Tactical Top receiver Rail with an EOTech 552 holographic sight.

The muzzle of an M60 machine gun is seen protruding from the door of the UH-60 helicopter as a soldier tries to grab Sam and pull him in. This plan fails when Starscream (seen perched on the building in the background) crashes the chopper with one of his missiles.
GE M134 Minigun
The Decepticon Blackout has an arm-mounted GE M134 Minigun, which he uses to lay suppressing fire on the jeeps at the Qatar base; presumably one of the door guns from his MH-53 alternate mode. Brawl has a similarly mysterious minigun on his arm in robot mode, though it's possible this was his tank mode coaxial weapon.

Bofors 40mm L/60
After the Warthogs fail to take down Skorponok, a CGI AC-130U "Spooky" gunship flies over and bombards him with both a Bofors 40mm L/60 and an M102 howitzer.
Bofors 40mm L/60 AA gun in a Boffin mounting - 40×311mmR
The AC-130U gunship flies high over the battlefield and fires its guns at Skorponok. It should be noted that the Bofors is firing far too fast, as it is reloaded four rounds at a time by human operators. The rate of fire is more consistent with staggered fire from the gunship's 25mm GAU 12/U with occasional shots from the 40mm.
M102 105mm Howitzer
After the Warthogs fail to take down Skorponok, a CGI AC-130U "Spooky" gunship flies over and bombards him with both a Bofors 40mm L/60 and an M102 Howitzer.

Milkor M32 MGL
Milkor M32 MGL launchers are used by Sector 7 soldiers and Captain Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and his team to battle the Decepticons during the fighting in Mission City, and are fitted with the factory Armson OEG reflex sights. Captain Lennox's M32 is also shown mounting a laser target designator on the side of the barrel. All of the launchers are also fitted with Vltor Modstocks.

Another weapon used by Sector 7 soldiers and Captain Lennox's (Josh Duhamel) team during the final battle are several heavily-modified Ramo RT-37 riot control launchers fitted with unknown red dot sights (appears to be a Bushnell Holosight), barrel shrouds and M4 type stocks. Captain Lennox most notably uses one when he charges Blackout on a commandeered motorcycle, skidding underneath the Decepticon to get a clear shot at the robot's weakly-armored lower body. Like the other grenade launchers in this movie, it produces a large muzzle flash which is not remotely possible in real life.
