WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Beretta 92FS Inox
The Beretta 92FS Inox appears in the film as the side-arm of the secret police of the government, aka "Fingermen". Plain-clothes Fingermen carry plain 92FS Inoxs and Fingermen of the tactical variety carry heavily customized versions, fitted with compensators, huge barrel weights on the dustcover, and tactical flashlights. Fingermen can be seen wielding these Berettas several times in the film, most notably during the climax shootout. Also during several flashbacks Fingermen briefly wield Berettas.

Heckler & Koch G36V
The Heckler & Koch G36V assault rifle can be seen wielded by the British Army as their primary weapons in the film. The soldiers most notably wield G36s when they are facing the V / civil rebellion.

The G36V, formerly known as the G36E, is the export version of the G36, and differs in that its carry handle lacks the dual optics found on the original G36 (although the dual-sight carry handle is available as an aftermarket accessory and can be fitted to a G36V).
