Inception is a 2010 science fiction thriller from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a man who specializes in infiltrating people's minds through their dreams and stealing their deepest secrets. The cast included Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, and Ellen Page.

The following weapons were used in the film Inception:




Beretta Px4 Storm

Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) carries throughout the film a Beretta Px4 Storm with a threaded barrel as his sidearm. He's also seen using it with a suppressor.

Beretta 92FS

The Beretta 92FS is used by several of the men chasing Cobb in the opening dream as well as during the chase in Mobasa. The men of Fischer's militarized subconscious who attack Arthur in the second level dream also use the Beretta. Arthur is then seen with the Beretta.

M26 Hand Grenade

Saito uses a M26 hand grenade (painted white) to ward off attackers during the winter scene. The grenade then explodes into flames, which is not possible as frag grenades explode into fragments and only incendiary grenades burst into flames. As this is a dream sequence, however, it is possible Eames or Saito was able to visualise a different reaction for the grenade.
