Other

"Cure" Pistol

After the armored van that transports Mystique (Rebecca Romijn), Multiple Man (Eric Dane), and Juggernaut (Vinnie Jones) is commandeered by the Brotherhood, one of van's guards uses a pistol that fires "Cure" darts to try and shoot Magneto (Ian McKellen) The pistol is fitted with a lime-green laser sight.

XM-92 Plastic "Cure" Rifle

The U.S. soldiers prepare against Magneto by swapping their metal weapons for plastic cure rifles instead. They are seen in the hands of the soldiers guarding the mutants accepting the "cure" and all the soldiers at Alcatraz are seen using these weapons. The designation is seen in two scenes (one of them deleted) showing the weapons in transport crates.

The "Cure" rifle with its side-plate removed. The design resembles the Heckler & Koch G11 in general, with FN SCAR folding/collapsible stock. The inside parts are very similar to the rotating bolt mechanism. Note the weapon has no such hole for a detachable magazine. And the double triggers are from a cheap Paintball gun.

"Cure" Launcher

Some of the U.S. soldiers defending against the Brotherhood on Alcatraz island use shoulder fired launchers that launch exploding projectiles, releasing cure darts in volleys.

"Cure" Cannon

U.S. soldiers on Alcatraz use a three barreled cannon to fire large "Cure"-releasing disks at Magneto and his troops on the Golden Gate bridge, but he lifts up parts of the bridge to deflect the darts.

Soldiers wheel out a "Cure" cannon.
Soldiers load a projectile into the "Cure" cannon. It is strange that this is shown as the projectile being loaded, since three discs are seen in flight when it is fired.

Trivia

In the film, all the US soldiers are ordered to turn in all metal items; guns, dogtags, etc (announced over loudspeaker by R. Lee Ermey). But interestingly enough, they still have metal in their helmets and boots - e.g. the boots' eyelets and shanks.
