Predator 2 is the 1990 sequel to 1987's Predator. Set in the then-future year of 1997, the sequel features a different "Predator" coming to Earth and descending upon a Los Angeles besieged by rival drug gangs in order to hunt for human trophies, one of which could be LAPD Detective Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover). The film was directed by Stephen Hopkins and the cast included Gary Busey, Rubén Blades, Bill Paxton, as well as Kevin Peter Hall, who returns from the first film, to play another Predator.
The following weapons were used in the film Predator 2:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Magnum Research Inc. Mark VII Desert Eagle
LAPD Detective Lieutenant Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) carries a brushed chrome .357 Magnum chambered Desert Eagle Mark VII fitted with a laser sight as his sidearm. The attachment of lasers and weaponlights to pistols was not a commonplace occurrence for law enforcement at the time of the film's production, however many of the sidearms in the film feature such accessories - This was likely done in order to give the weapons more of a 'futuristic' aesthetic for the film's then-future setting (this has proven to be accurate, as the use of such attachments on police sidearms has since been more widely adopted).

) looks up towards the building holding his Desert Eagle.

Harrigan aims his Desert Eagle at El Scorpio - Not the best installation of the laser sight, as the wire for the grip switch could impede spent shell casings from exiting the weapon properly.

Harrigan retrieves his Desert Eagle and forces Garber (Adam Baldwin
), one of Keyes' men, to open the door.
Detective Leona Cantrell (Maria Conchita Alonso) uses a SIG-Sauer P226 as her weapon of choice. Attached to the pistol is an early LASERAIM sight (All the pistols in the film needed a little modification to attach these aiming sights since the film was made before pistols regularly were designed with rails).

Det. Jerry Lambert (Bill Paxton) also carries a SIG-Sauer P226, which is the nickeled variant. Lambert's pistol is fitted with a black laser sight, notably aboard the subway train and later when attacked by the Predator.
A nickel SIG-Sauer P226 - 9x19mm. This is another real movie gun and has been adapted to fire full flash motion picture blanks.

Miquelet Lock Pistol
This 18th century pistol with a characteristically Iberian form of flintlock ignition was presented to Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) by the Elder Predator at the end of the film. The movie prop was an off-the-shelf commercially available non-firing replica from the Spanish manufacturer Denix, made in cast pot metal and hardwood. The external miquelet mainspring and full-cock sear are purely decorative, as the replica uses the same internal dry-fire mechanism as the other Denix models. It was reportedly customized for the movie by Keystone Arsenal Replicas. Modifications appear limited to the removal of the original die-cast sideplate and fabrication of the over-sized engraved sheet-metal replacement.

Smith & Wesson Model 66 (Snub)
A 2.5" barrel Smith & Wesson Model 66 is one of the handguns Harrigan selected from in his trunk cache. It also appears to be the revolver pulled by a subway rider who is threatened by some thugs.

Heckler & Koch HK94A2 (chopped and converted)
A police officer can be seen firing a chopped and converted Heckler & Koch HK94A2 in a news clip in the beginning of the movie. Other officers are also seen with the HK94A2.
Heckler & Koch HK94A2 converted to full auto fire, shortened barrel, and added third firing position on trigger pack to resemble an MP5A2 - 9x19mm. This version was used in many films during the 1980s and 1990s.

IMI Micro Uzi
"El Scorpio" (Veteran stuntman and occasional actor Henry Kingi) is seen using two Micro Uzi's during the opening scene before being forced to flee. These customized two-tone Uzi's are the same ones used in the films The Running Man, Total Recall and Class of 1999.

Rifles / Carbines
Colt CAR-15 variant
Harrigan (Danny Glover) uses a CAR-15 variant with an underslung M203 grenade launcher when he confronts the Predator. Since the receiver is never seen clearly it remains unidentified.

Steyr AUG A1
The Steyr AUG A1 is used by various Colombian gang members during the shootout at the beginning of the film. Some LAPD officers are also seen holding these weapons outside of the Metro station.

Heckler & Koch HK91A2
Several Heckler & Koch HK91A2s are used by LAPD officers, as well as by the Colombian gang during the shootout at the beginning of the film. The LAPD HK91A2s feature all black furniture with wide or 'tropical' forearms and Imatronic LS45 laser sights attached to them. The gang members have HK91A2s with olive drab furniture and 'slimline' forearms. The HK91 was made for the American Civilian market and can be distinguished from it's originator, the Heckler & Koch G3, by the former's lack of a "paddle" magazine release - The HK91 features a button magazine release. All appear to have been converted to fully automatic.

When Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) goes to the metro station to find Jerry Lambert (Bill Paxton), a police officer wearing a PASGT helmet can be seen holding an M16A1. Various M16A1s can be seen when the Colombians pick up weapons at the beginning of the film.

Norinco Type 56
Among the many guns (and missiles) seen in the Colombians' stash, at least three Norinco Type 56 are seen in a weapons crate.

Benelli M1 Super 90 "Entry"
In addition to his Desert Eagle, Harrigan uses a Benelli M1 Super 90 "Entry" semi-auto shotgun with a cut-down barrel, removed stock, pistol grip and laser sight. The shotgun had previously been the main weapon carried by the title character in the short-lived 1980's Sam Jones-starring television series The Highwayman. In the film, Harrigan uses the shotgun while engaging gangsters during the opening shootout. He also is seen with the shotgun holstered on his thigh when he gears up to face the Predator in the meat packing plant.

Harrigan fires his Benelli at the Colombians. A total of ten shots is depicted being fired (even though a tube that short couldn't possibly hold that many).
Harrigan fires the Benelli M1 at the Predator. Again he fires ten shots from such a short tube. At least the movie's consistent with its inaccuracies.
With his shotgun out, Harrigan inspects the Predator.

An LAPD sergeant (Steve Kahan) is armed with a Franchi SPAS-15 with a laser sight attached to it (which seems rather unnecessary for a shotgun unless it is using slugs) in the beginning of the movie.

Mossberg 500 Bullpup
In the opening shootout and throughout the film, several LAPD officers can be seen with Mossberg 500 Bullpups. It's also briefly glimpsed in Harrigan's trunk as he loads up before confronting the Predator. Garber (Adam Baldwin) also is seen carrying one as he confronts Harrigan at the end of the film.

The Bullpup also briefly glimpsed in Harrigan's trunk as he loads up before confronting the Predator.
At the start of the movie, one of the Colombian gangsters picks up an early model Barrett M82A1 from their weapons cache. The gangster with the Barrett M82A1 is Thomas Rosales Jr., a Hispanic professional stuntman who routinely plays unnamed thugs in motion pictures.

One of El Scorpio's gangsters (Thomas Rosales Jr.
) pulls up the Barrett M82A1. When he flips the front-lid of the scope there is a distinct metal sound eventhough the lid is made of plastic.

Iver Johnson AMAC-1500
One of the Colombians is seen taking up a Iver Johnson AMAC-1500 in El Scorpio's armory. Perhaps not the best choice for a standoff with police, as to reload the bolt needs to be completely removed and a single round loaded to fire. The entire scene is also edited together in the wrong order. First the Colombian attaches a round to the bolt (first screenshot), then he all of a sudden removes the bolt (second).

A round is loaded into the bolt. Perhaps not the best choice for a standoff with police, as visible here that the bolt needs to be completely removed and only a single round can be loaded to fire.
The bolt is completely removed. The sequence was edited so this was seen after
the above shot.
M60 Machine Gun
Two Colombians pick up two M60 machine guns when they are in their weapons cache. One member of the special team headed up by Peter Keyes (Gary Busey) uses one with the bipod and the sights removed (this was similar to the way the M60 was used by US Navy SEALs in Vietnam).

Defense Technologies 1315 37mm
Colombian gang leader 'El Scorpio' (Henry Kingi) uses a two tone Def Tech 1315 37mm launcher, made to act like an HE launcher. Its used to kill or injure two LAPD officers and destroy a Police car.

as the guerrilla that gets blown up when he tries to stop the runaway truck Arnold Schwarzenegger
sent careering into the rebel camp.
'El Scorpio' (Henry Kingi
) celebrates after blowing up a police car with his DefTech 1315 37mm Launcher. In reality this is not possible with that weapon, since the explosion looks more like an 80mm mortar round than a 37mm "HE" round.
An armory crate filled with Deftech 1315 37mm launchers is seen in the Colombian gang armory.

Double Barreled Firearm (fictional)
A custom double barreled firearm is carried by one of Peter Keyes' men. This gun, based on it's apparence, is most likely not a real life firearm but a custom made weapon for Hollywood effect only.
