The following weapons were used in the film X2:

Handguns

SIG-Sauer P228

The handguns used by the Secret Service agents and USSS Uniformed Division officers during the White House attack are SIG-Sauer P228 pistols. In real life, the 9x19mm P228 was used by Secret Service until it was replaced by the SIG-Sauer P229 chambered in .357 SIG.

Glock 17

Boston Police Department officers can be seen using Glock 17s as their sidearms in the film, one of them shooting Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in the head, though he survives the seemingly fatal shot and is able to walk away, much to the officer's bewilderment. Both second and third generation variants are seen. The officer that fires has a 3rd Generation G17, noted by the accessory rail. Later on the film Sgt. Lyman uses a Glock 17 on Mystique but when he is guarding Cerebro 2 it changes to a Walther P99.

Glock 17 2nd Generation - 9x19mm
One of the officers is armed with a Glock 17. This G17 lacks the accessory rail, indidcating an older 2nd Generation variant.

Walther P99

Col. Stryker's soldiers at the Alkali Lake base can be seen carrying Walther P99 pistols as their sidearms.

Submachine Guns

FN P90

The FN P90 can be seen being used by the Black Ops team led by Col. Stryker (Brian Cox). They are fitted with tactical flashlights and suppressors (though the full sound of the P90 is heard when fired). Some of the P90s are also seen equipped with some sort of Tazer, most likely used as some sort of less-lethal CQB weapon.

Rifles

M4A1 Carbine

Col. Stryker's soldiers at the Alkali Lake complex can be seen armed primarily with M4A1 carbines fitted with RIS foregrips, tactical weaponlights and laser sights.

Grenades

Spike Grenade

Grenades are used by the commandos at the school as spike grenades and by the soldiers at Alkali Lake though they are likely the same prop. The Commandos that raid the school all seem to have some kind of spike grenade though it is likely a fictitious weapon meant to be planted on walls or ice.

Fragmentation Grenade

Magneto (Ian McKellen) uses his magnetic powers to pull the pins on the Alkali Lake soldier's grenades to kill them all. Although portrayed as High-Explosive Fragmentation (HE-Frag), they look more like the M84 stun grenade than any HE-Frag grenades in the inventory.

Commando Dart Gun

The commandos who raid the school are all armed with Dart Guns in addition to their P90s to prevent "A dead mutant kid on the 6 o'clock news", the President's main concern about the raid.
