Overlord is a 2018 World War II horror film that focuses on a unit of US paratroopers on the eve of D-Day, who stumble upon a secret German laboratory that is experimenting on the citizens of a small French town. The film was directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) and was co-produced by J.J. Abrams.
The following weapons were used in the film Overlord (2018):
Several of the American soldiers carry M1911 pistols as their standard issue sidearms. This pistol is used by Corporal Lewis Ford (Wyatt Russell), PFC Edward Boyce (Jovan Adepo), PFC Jacob Rosenfeld (Dominic Applewhite) and Private Morton Chase (Iain De Caestecker).
The MP40 is used by many of the SS soldiers stationed at the bunker complex. Several of the weapons are also taken by the Allied raiding force and turned against their former owners. As is common in films, the MP40 is incorrectly portrayed as being the most common weapon carried by German troops, although it is at least somewhat conceivable that soldiers guarding a secret research facility may be issued with more of these than would be considered typical.
The Karabiner 98k is the main battle rifle used by German forces in the film.
Some SS soldiers are seen armed with the Sturmgewehr 44. Several of these are captured and used by the Allied raiding party, including Private Rosenfeld (Dominic Applewhite) and Chloe (Mathilde Ollivier).
M1903A4 Springfield Sniper Rifle
Browning Automatic Rifle
The MG34 is the principal machine gun used by the German forces guarding the bunker, seen both in sandbag emplacements and mounted on their vehicles. One of these is captured by the American troops and used by PFC Jacob Rosenfeld (Dominic Applewhite), who correctly identifies the machine gun as a two-man weapon when he is criticized for not reloading and firing more quickly. Several times in the film, the MG34 is referred to as the "buzzsaw" by the Americans; whilst this is a genuine piece of WW2 Allied slang, the nickname was actually given to the faster-firing MG42.
Mk II Hand Grenade
The Mk II Hand Grenade is carried by US soldiers in the film. A grenade is seen in the mouth of an SS soldier.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
Model 24 Stielhandgranate "Potato Mashers" are used by the Germans, as well as the Allied raiding force.
German soldiers use Flammenwerfer 35s to dispose of corpses. Later, Chole (Mathilde Ollivier) retrieves one to use against a zombie super-soldier.
