SIG-Sauer P229 E2
Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) and other Secret Service agents, including Agent Roma (Cole Hauser), use current-production SIG-Sauer P229 E2 pistols as their sidearms. Banning uses the P229 during the initial attack on the White house, but later discards it after running out of ammunition. Kang Yeonsak (Rick Yune), leader of the North Korean terrorists, also takes a P229 from a Secret Service agent and uses it throughout the film. Former Secret Service Agent Dave Forbes (Dylan McDermott) also uses the P229 as his sidearm.

Some of the Metropolitan Police Department officers are armed with SIG-Sauer P226R pistols. A fallen Marine Sergeant also has a P226 lying next to his body, noted by the longer slide than a P229.

Most of the North Korean terrorists who invade the White House are armed with Glock 17 pistols. Metropolitan Police Department officers also use Glocks while battling the terrorists in the film. Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) kills one of the terrorists, and takes his equipment, including a Glock 17, after his P229 runs out of ammunition.

GE M134 Minigun
A C-130 modified into a gunship that is used to bombard the White House before the terrorist attack fires two M134 Miniguns. A fictional missile-and-gun CIWS system mounted on the White House roof called HYDRA 6 is also equipped with two M134s.
General Electric M134 - 7.62x51mm NATO
The HYDRA 6 fires at the SEAL helicopters. The firing shots seem to have been accomplished by building a miniature installation with modified M134s with camera tricks used to make the system appear much larger on the roof, implying the guns of the "HYDRA 6" are supposed to be 20 or 30mm. The rest of the armament looks to be a combination of faux Hydra 70 rocket pods and rail-mounted Sparrow missiles.
