London Has Fallen is the 2016 sequel to 2013's Olympus Has Fallen. The sequel follows US Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), who is in London with US President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) to attend the funeral of the British Prime Minister, and subsequently find themselves trying to survive another terrorist incident. Also returning from the original film are Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell and Robert Forster.
The following weapons were used in the film London Has Fallen:
US Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) carries the SIG-Sauer P229R as his primary firearm in the film. The pistol is also seen in the hands of President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and MI6 Agent Jacqueline "Jax" Marshall (Charlotte Riley), in addition to in the armoury in the MI6 safehouse. True to real life, the P229 is the standard issue sidearm of the USSS agents. However, unlike the E2 model used in the previous film Olympus Has Fallen, the older railed variant is seen featured in this film. It appears to be chambered in 9mm instead of the correct .357 SIG used by the USSS.

Terrorists disguised as MPS officers are also seen with them, alongside with Kamran Barkawi (Waleed Zuaiter) and Sultan Mansoor (Mehdi Dehbi).

Another terrorist fires a Stinger. As is normal for live-action, this is a spent Stinger tube fitted with a fake, flat-fronted gripstock assembly without a mounting latch.

A disguised terrorist can be seen firing what appears to be a Milkor MGL launcher. Based on the shorter barrel and the white-tipped rim and barrel interior, this launcher is in reality an airsoft replica.
