Nice, but where's the trigger?

The following weapons were used in the film Elysium (2013):
Spyder's men are armed with Beretta 92FS pistols in various scenes.
Human Elysium security forces carry an unidentified sci-fi pistol. Agent Kruger's (Sharlto Copley) men also carry these pistols.
Manuel (Adrian Holmes) gives Max De Costa (Matt Damon) a dressed up AKM rifle before the brain data heist. The rifle fires fictional 7.62x39mm airburst munitions, and is fitted with an advanced (and fictional) computerized targeting system that includes a holosight, aiming laser, and rangefinder. The targeting system allows the operator to determine the range at which the airburst munition will detonate, similar to the real-life XM25. Before Max can use the rifle during the heist, it jams and he gives to Julio (Diego Luna), who clears the jam.
Julio (Diego Luna) uses a FN SCAR-L assault rifle suring the brain data heist. He gives the rifle to Max De Costa (Matt Damon), after Max discards his custom AKM. Its 5.56x45mm ammunition, unlike the AKM's airbust rounds, prove highly ineffective against the security droids.
AR-15 variants can be seen in the hands of Spyder's men.
One of the resistance fighters who accompanies Spyder to Elysium carries a Norinco QBZ-97B
Max De Costa (Matt Damon) grabs a fictional "ChemRail" rifle during the fight in the Elysium armory. The ChemRail has a high rate of fire, and its high-velocity rounds rip right through walls and shred enemies. The weapon has a blazing rate of fire, and instead changing magazines, Max just grabs another ChemRail rifle from the armory after the first one runs out of ammo. According to the official site, it fires 8.75x52mm FSDRAS (Fin Stabilized, Discarding Rail Accelerator Sabot) rounds with a muzzle energy of 18 kilojoules. It is a dual-stage weapon, using chemical propellant first and then electro-magnetic rails as the second stage.
Cousar Crowe assault rifle
The Cousar Crowe is a fictional assault rifle carried by Elysium security droids, human security, and Kruger's team. According to the official site, it is a 40 kg anti-material rifle firing .22 caliber hyper-velocity rounds. According to the prop itself, it is made in Brazil and fires 5.25x25mm electro-chemically propelled rounds. The movie itself treats it as a bog standard assault rifle that is neither heavy nor particularly powerful.
Manuel (Adrian Holmes) gives Max De Costa (Matt Damon) a customized Remington 870 before the brain data heist. The Remington is fitted with a short barrel, M4-style stock, a doorbreaching muzzle device, and Surefire weaponslight foregrip. Max uses the weapon to fire a guided high-explosive round, that is then remotely triggered. He then ditches the weapon, and it is not seen again.
Fictional door gun
A door gun is mounted on the R-165 Raven Assault VTOL that Agent Kruger (Sharlto Copley) and his men ride.
FN Minimi SPW (Knight's Armament ChainSAW Mock-Up)
Manuel (Adrian Holmes) uses an FN Minimi SPW mocked up to look like a KAC ChainSAW (a modified Stoner 96 LMG with chainsaw grips, Cobray flare launcher, and suppressor) during the brain data heist. He also appears to have a camera device attached to the weapon and linked with his helmet display, as he is seen firing the weapon wildly from cover while looking in the opposite direction.
Missile launcher (4Sure Ballistics Missile Launcher)
Kruger (Sharlto Copley) uses the 4Sure Ballistics Missile Launcher, a surface-to-space missile launcher that looks similar to a M202A1 FLASH. It fires ground-to-space missiles at over 518 kilometers per second, or 45 times escape velocity with an effective range in excess of 15,000 kilometers. The official site implies that the weapon uses a non-nuclear thermal grenade warhead, the NT-RU735, with a megaton-level explosive yield. However, the movie depicts the missiles as simple kinetic-impact rounds,
Sky Sweeper grenade launcher
John Carlyle's (William Fichtner) security droids carry Sky Sweeper grenade launchers mounted on their Crowe assault rifles. According to the official site, the device is a 15kg, 25mm caliber missile launcher that fires anti-air rounds at escape velocity, and is able to engage targets on Earth from the Moon. In the actual movie, the weapon appears closer to 40mm caliber and suffers from Video Game Grenade Launcher Syndrome, turning the supposedly-powerful weapon into an inaccurate dumbfire weapon whose rounds do zero damage. However, only Carlyle's droids ever carry the launcher, suggesting that it may well add a good deal of weight to the rifle it is mounted on.
M203A1 grenade launcher
An M203A1 grenade launcher is custom-fitted to Manuel's M249.
An unknown model of hand grenade is used by one of Carlyle's security droids. Max also uses one of these grenades on Agent Kruger's VTOL. The grenades appear to be a "futurised" fragmentation grenade, with the general shape of a modern smoke grenade. If you look closely, you can see tiny grooves in the casing, suggesting a high fragment count.
