Road Warrior, The
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. Released in the US under the title The Road Warrior, this 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 guns were used in the film The Road Warrior
Smith & Wesson 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.
Sawed-off Double Barrel shotgun
C02 volley gun
A Nordenfelt-style CO2-powered volley gun is mounted on a pickup truck and used to shoot down the gyrocopter with flechette darts. The same weapon is also used by Wez (Vernon Wells) to shoot the 'Warrior Woman' played by Virginia Hey.
Wez uses a forearm-mounted crossbow throughout the film. There are also numerous other standard crossbows used by other marauders and the refinery defenders.
