The Matrix Reloaded is the second feature film in The Matrix Trilogy. The Wachowskis returned as writer/directors for this 2003 sequel, which finds Neo (Keanu Reeves) discovering that his destiny may have changed the nature of the Matrix, including the program Smith (Hugo Weaving). The release of The Matrix Reloaded, which was filmed concurrently with the third installment The Matrix Revolutions, was quickly followed by several other media projects set in the same universe: the animated anthology The Animatrix, the videogame Enter the Matrix, and then the feature Revolutions, which was released six months following this sequel.
The following weapons were used in the film The Matrix Reloaded:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Beretta 92FS Compact
Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) carries a pair of Beretta 92FS Compact pistols as her sidearms in this film and The Matrix Revolutions (although she is only seen using one in this film). She pulls one of her Berettas on Persephone (Monica Bellucci) when she desires to kiss Neo (Keanu Reeves). She later pulls one of them and fires it into one Twin's arm when he blocks open a door leading to a parking garage.

IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX
As per the norm in The Matrix Trilogy, the Agents in the film can be seen wielding Desert Eagle Mark XIX pistols in .50 AE. Smith (Hugo Weaving) uses them to terrifying effect when a group of his clones, all carrying identical Desert Eagles, volley fire them at Neo, Morpheus, and the Keymaker (Randall Duk Kim). Unlike the first film, the Desert Eagles in this film have a polished finish instead of the original Matte black.
IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX - .50 AE
Agent Johnson (Daniel Bernhardt
) fires his IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX at Trinity at the start if the film. Note the infeasibly large muzzle flare, which looks more like a scaled-down fireball.
Agent Thompson (Matt McColm
) fires his Desert Eagle at Trinity and Morpheus during the highway chase. Note polished black finish.
Opposite shot of the same scene.
Thompson reloads his Desert Eagle, a rare sight in the Matrix films. Equally impressive, in the scene above he can actually be seen thumbing away the safety, an unusual sight in any
Morpheus tries to kill Agent Johnson with his own Desert Eagle but has it kicked away.
A cluster of Agent Smiths fire their Desert Eagles in a volley.

Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) uses a Glock 18C in the confrontation with the Twins in the parking garage, then in the following freeway chase scene, where he uses it to destroy the Twins' Cadillac Escalade after using a katana to help flip the vehicle. Morpheus's Glock 18C is initially loaded with a 19-round magazine during the scene in the parking garage, then reloaded with a 33-round extended magazine during the freeway chase.
Morpheus pulls his Glock 18C as he and Trinity attempt to escape from the Twins in the parking garage.

Morpheus loads a 33-round magazine into his Glock 18C as they head for the freeway.
Morpheus drops his Glock 18C while fighting with one of the Twins in the car. Note how the magazine is at least half-empty, as evident by the lack of brass seen through the viewing ports of the lower half of the magazine.
An excellent shot of the Glock 18C and its selector switch on the back of the slide, proving it is not a converted Glock 17
like in many films. The selector switch on the slide is set to semi-auto fire and "18C" can be read on the slide. This fact is also noted by armorer Robert "Rock" Galotti
in the DVD extra material.
Morpheus fires his Glock 18C at Agent Johnson, who dodges the rounds. This seems like a more appropriate time to fire it in full auto, but for some reason he doesn't. This is possibly because with his other hand restrained he could not reach the fire selector.
Morpheus destroys the Twins' Cadillac Escalade with a long burst from his Glock 18C in the ultimate badass pose. Note the blank shells ejecting.
COP 357 Derringer
After agreeing to help the protagonists, Persephone (Monica Bellucci) kills one of her husband's henchmen (a vampire) and threatens another with a COP 357 Derringer with pearl grips, loaded with silver bullets.

SIG-Sauer P229 Sport
Ghost (Anthony Brandon Wong) packs a stainless steel SIG-Sauer P229 Sport as his sidearm. He is briefly seen loading it just before the car he and Niobe (Jada Pinkett Smith) are riding in is rear-ended by a semi truck whose driver has changed into an Agent.

While making their way through the hallway of doors, the protagonists have an unexpected encounter with Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving). When Smith tells them that he "wants everything", Morpheus pulls out a Walther P99 and holds it to his head, asking if "everything" included a bullet from the gun. Before Morpheus can fire, a swarm of Smith clones burst in and overpower them. Bane (Ian Bliss) briefly tries to draw a Walther P99 on Agent Smith before being coded over by him.

Morpheus is crowded by Agent Smiths. The gun appears to be a rubber prop as noted by the trigger attached to the trigger guard and that it is thrown down in the same shot.
Stevens 67 (Sawed-off)
During the meeting where the machines' plan to attack Zion is revealed, Wurm, one of the Zion rebels guarding the door is seen carrying a nickel Stevens 67 shotgun with a sawed-off barrel, black pistol grip and foregrip.

Heckler & Koch UMP-45
During the freeway chase, one of the Twins (Neil and Adrian Rayment) opens fire on the protagonists with a Heckler & Koch UMP-45 fitted with a C-More red dot sight and an almost bottomless magazine. Showing no concern for innocents caught in the crossfire, he opens fire on a luckless Chevy Tahoe SUV that winds up between him and his target, causing it to flip and trigger a spectacular chain-reaction pileup.

IMI Micro Uzi
Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) opens the film by diving out of a high-rise office building's window while wielding two IMI Micro Uzis, firing them at a pursuing Agent. It begs the question where she kept them though, as she is wearing an almost skintight outfit and no evidence of any carried weapons after being thrown about by an Agent just prior.
