WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
The Beretta 92FS is used by Serena Unger (Deepika Padukone), Xander Cage (Vin Diesel), Hawk (Michael Bisping) and Nicks (Kris Wu). A pair of two-tone Berettas are seen in a weapons case.
The Beretta held by Serena Unger when she appears for the first time. Note the straight dust cover, meaning this is likely a Beretta M9 and not a 92FS.
In a brief Beretta versus knife standoff, Serena points the pistol at Xander in a tender area, rather worryingly without displaying trigger discipline as she previously did.
Xander and Serena disarm each other, exchanging weapons in the process.

A Beretta is holstered by an attacker; Hawk later takes the pistol and uses it against him. Note the hex screws, meaning this is likely a Beretta M9.

Heckler & Koch USP Tactical
An attacker uses a Heckler & Koch USP Tactical against Xander and Xiang. While climbing up the stairs, Xander is able to identify it as a .45 caliber USP, and Xiang points out its use of a 12-round magazine. This comes in handy, since they manage to count the bullets remaining then overpower the attacker when he empties his weapon and attempts to reload it.

Heckler & Koch MP5KA1 - variant fitted with low profile sights intended for covert carry - 9x19mm
Becky holding her newly acquired MP5KA1 while hiding behind cover. She displays good trigger discipline, but this seems to be merely due to her status as a high tech specialist with knowledge in firearms...
...and clearly not to combat experience, since after taking a heavy breath, she gets out of cover and clumsily fires the weapon one-handed while yelling. She's fortunate enough to have hit her target with the first bullets, as the remaining ones obviously got sprayed all over the place.
Becky slips on the ground in an attempt to rush towards two incoming opponents, causing her to drop the gun, yet it manages to fire by itself on impact with the ground, luckily taking down the duo.

Grenade Mockup (labeled "RGD-5")
Mocked up grenades are carried by Xander Cage (Vin Diesel), Xiang (Donnie Yen), and Serena Unger (Deepika Padukone). They have "RGD-5" written on them in Russian, but they don't have the look of true RGD-5 hand grenades.
An actual RGD-5 hand grenade, for comparison
Note how the grenade's body has two belts, in contrast to the real RGD-5, which only has one. The "ИН" marking alludes to an inert grenade; in reality, dummy RGD-5 grenades have such markings below the belt, not above.
