The Road Warrior aka Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)

The Road Warrior (aka Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior) is the 1981 sequel to Mad Max. The movie's initial US release did not announce it as a sequel, since the original film did not get a lot of exposure in the US market. The sequel had the advantage of a much higher budget and a deal with a major American distributor, ensuring that it would appear in many more theaters across the country. The film was largely responsible for the "post-apocalyptic" sci-fi films of the period. The Road Warrior was a financial success and paved the way for the third film in the series, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, released in 1985.

This article uses the original US release title; following the franchise's success, it was re-linked to the original movie, and modern editions are titled Mad Max 2 or Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.

The following weapons were used in the film The Road Warrior, aka Mad Max 2:


Sawed-off double-barrel shotgun

"Mad" Max Rockatansky (Mel Gibson) uses a sawn-off double-barrel shotgun from his MFP days throughout the film. This shotgun differs from the sawn-off VG Bentley shotgun in Mad Max in that the foregrip is more triangular and the trigger guard is a different shape.

Smith & Wesson Model 29

A Smith & Wesson Model 29 fitted with an optical scope is the personal weapon of Lord Humungus (Kjell Nilsson). He very rarely uses it, since the ammunition is rare and precious in the post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max.
