DefTech 37mm launcher

A multi-shot DefTech 37mm launcher (similar to the ones featured in RoboCop 3 and CliffHanger) can be seen in the hands of Burt near the films opening in which he fires a flare out of to illuminate a proper killing zone for the approaching Shrieker herd. This is one of the very rare instances where the launcher is actually seen firing its proper/correct flare munitions, rather than explosive rounds as it is often portrayed.
