The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the television series Stranger Things:

Rifles / Carbines

Zastava M92

Soviet security forces often carry the anachronistic Zastava M92 carbine while guarding shipments at Starcourt Mall, presumably as a stand-in for the contemporary AKS-74U.

Curiously enough, a custom AKMSU appears as Chief Hopper (David Harbour) appropriates one and uses it in the season finale "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" (S3E08).

M16A2 rifles are used by U.S. soldiers in "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" (S3E08) as they storm the Soviet base. The rifles have large "Maglite"-style flashlights taped to the handguards. While technically not anachronistic for the year in which Season 3 is set (1985), the M16A2's use by U.S. soldiers is unlikely; in 1985, only the U.S. Marine Corps had adopted the M16A2. The Army did not adopt the M16A2 until 1986, and it did not begin reaching any Army units until 1988.

M16A2 Rifle - 5.56x45mm. Select Fire rifle (Safe/Semi/3 round Burst Only).

What is probably meant to be a M197 Vulcan cannon is seen mounted on a AH-1 Cobra as reinforcements arrive at the end of "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt".
