|xXx: State of the Union
|| United States
xXx: State of the Union is the 2005 sequel to the 2002 Vin Diesel-starring action film xXx. The film was directed by Lee Tamahori (Die Another Day) and Ice Cube takes over as the "new" xXx agent. The film was released internationally under the title xXx 2: The Next Level. Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Roof reprised their roles from the first film and the cast also included Scott Speedman, Sunny Mabrey, and Willem Dafoe. Vin Diesel would reprise his role as Xander in the 2017 sequel xXx: Return of Xander Cage.
The following weapons were used in the film xXx: State of the Union:
Smith & Wesson Performance Center Model 629 (Customized)
The modified Smith & Wesson Model 629 Performance Center used by Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) in the first XXX makes a return appearance in the sequel. Agent Toby Lee Shavers (Michael Roof) can be seen with it during the raid on the NSA compound before he and Gibbons make their escape using the GTO from the previous film. Darius Stone (Ice Cube) also uses the revolver when he breaks into the xXx headquarters.

Zeke (Xzibit) can briefly be seen holding a stainless Ruger GP100 revolver when he and Stone jack the government gun truck.

Colt XSE M1911
Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) keeps two customized Colt XSE pistols as his sidearms, and most notably wields them during the beginning shootout. Unfortunately, he loses the guns during the firefight, and they are later used to frame Darius Stone (Ice Cube) of a murder.
One of the screen used Colt XSE M1911 Pistols, wielded, carried (and lost) by August Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson
) in the film. The pistols have a customized slide with the initials "A G" etched (for "Augustus Gibbons") and also has the logo for SEAL TEAM 4 in the center - .45 ACP

Beretta 92FS Vertec 1A
Darius Stone (Ice Cube) carries a Beretta 92FS Vertec 1A as his sidearm in the film. The Vertec 1A has an Elite II slide, but a perfectly vertical grip and front of trigger guard of vertec Series. Augustus Gibbons also briefly uses Darius' Beretta inside the Capitol building.

Heckler & Koch USP Compact Tactical
Most of General Deckart's (Willem Dafoe) troops use the Heckler & Koch USP Compact Tactical as their sidearms, including Deckart's right-hand man, Alabama Cobb (John G. Connolly). Charlie Mayweather (Sunny Mabrey) also uses one as her sidearm during the attack on the Capitol. General Deckart (Willem Dafoe) uses Cobb's USP Compact Tactical on the Presidential Bullet Train.
Heckler & Koch USP Compact Tactical - .45 ACP
Cobb holds his USP on Gibbons. An interesting goof to point out is that Cobb is referred to as a 'Sergeant' and 'Lieutenant Colonel'. However because of his background as a US Navy SEAL, Cobb would not be able to have either ranks - The USN equivalent to Sergeant is Petty Officer Second Class and USN equivalent to Lieutenant Colonel is Commander.
Cobb racks the slide of his USP aboard the USS Independence.
Charlie holds her USP on Gibbons during the attack on the Capitol.

After Augustus Gibbons loses his customized Colt XSE 1911s, he uses a WWI dated M1911 pistol that he loses (yet, again) after Deckart frames his death.
Original Colt M1911 (dated 1913) - .45 ACP

When Gibbons sneaks into his basement, he opens a stash that contains some files and a stainless Para-Ordnance P-10. He never uses it, though, as he hears noises from upstairs and hides the files and the P-10.

Kyle Steele (Scott Speedman) and the rest of the NSA agents carry SIG-Sauer P226Rs as their sidearms in the film. Most of them can be seen fitted with rail-mounted weaponlights. The cops trying to stop Toby at the bridge after Stone's attack on the NSA base also use regular SIG-Sauer P226s. A SWAT team member also uses one during the raid on Pettibone's mansion. Shavers (Michael Roof) also uses one during the attack on the Capitol. A couple of US Secret Service agents also try to pull SIG-Sauer P226s during the attack on the capitol.
SIG-Sauer P226R - 9x19mm, updated P226 with accessory rails, now the standard production version for the P226 (IMFDB still refers to this model as the "P226R" to distinguish between newer and older models).

) and another NSA agent, both armed with SIG-Sauer P226R's
Steele runs after Stone, understandably angry due to Stone blowing their shit up.
Steele fires the SIG. This is a goof since Steele doesn't even have his finger on the trigger, and the muzzle flashes are all CGI and the slide doesn't move.

During the attack on the capitol, Charlie (Sunny Mabrey) has a USP Compact Tactical as her sidearm that she is seen wielding. There is a brief continuity error in the next scene, where her USP turns into a Glock 26.
Heckler & Koch MP5A2
Some of the NSA agents are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A2 submachine guns during the beginning shootout.

Rifles / Carbines
(Fake) Heckler & Koch XM8
All of the men under the command of Secretary of Defense George Deckart (Willem Dafoe), including Alabama Cobb (John G. Connolly), use Heckler & Koch XM8 rifles as their primary firearms throughout the film. These rifles are actually heavily modified Heckler & Koch G36Cs. Some of the men also have M203 grenade launchers fitted onto their rifles. During the attack on Capitol, Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) picks up one of these rifles, but exchanges it for Stone's (Ice Cube) Mk 46 Mod 0, which he uses for the rest of the scene.

. Also clearly visible in this shot is one piece receiver with separate magazine well of the G36, as opposed to the two piece upper/lower receiver of the XM8.
The M16A2 assault rifle can be seen in the hands of the U.S. Army soldiers and Marines throughout the movie. One of Zeke's (Xzibit) thugs also also has one slung over his shoulder during the attack on the capitol.

Colt M4A1 Carbine
Some of the NSA agents and some NSA security forces at the xXx headquarters are armed with Colt M4A1 carbines throughout the film. Most of the carbines are fitted with Surefire M500AB forearm weaponlights. A couple of SWAT officers are also armed with M4A1s fitted with C-More red dot sights during the raid on the mansion. Kyle Steele (Scott Speedman) also uses one during the attack on the Capitol, fitted with the aforementioned weaponlight and a Leupold CQ/T scope.

The prison guard shoulders his 700PSS, only to be interrupted by his superior, noting that there's nowhere for Stone to go. If he only had known better...
The guard fires his Remington at Stone. In this scene the muzzle flashes are all CGI, as the weapon is depicted as a semiautomatic. In real, this would be impossible, since this particular gun is a bolt-action rifle.

FN Tactical Police
One of the NSA agents wields an FN Tactical Police shotgun fitted with a vertical foregrip, tactical flashlight and a C-More red dot sight during the beginning shootout in the xXx headquarters.

Mk 46 Mod 0
Darius Stone (Ice Cube) uses the SOCOM version of the M249, the Mk 46 Mod 0 as his primary firearm during the attack on the US Capitol building. Stone later trades the Mk 46 Mod 0 for a Heckler & Koch XM8 with an M203, originally picked up by Augustus Gibbons. The Mk 46 Mod 0 is fitted with a C-More red dot sight and tactical light under the barrel.

M203PI Grenade Launcher
Some of the Heckler & Koch XM8 rifles wielded by Deckart' (Willem Dafoe) men have M203PI Grenade Launchers attached to their rifles. Most of the M203 have also vertical grips installed, so that one could use it as a stand-alone grenade launcher. Darius Stone (Ice Cube) detaches an M203 from an XM8 he takes during the attack on the Capitol, and uses it on the Presidential bullet train.

Custom Rocket Launcher
Agent Toby Shavers (Michael Roof) makes Darius Stone (Ice Cube) a custom rocket launcher supposedly out of various car parts. Stone uses the launcher when he blows up one of the barns as a decoy when he infiltrates the xXx headquarters. The launcher is not a real life rocket launcher, as it was made purely for this film.
Stone launches the rocket. Notice how the launch button says 'Engine start'.
The rocket goes flying out of the tube. Note hoe the body of the launcher is a car muffler.
M242 Bushmaster Chaingun
While onboard the aircraft carrier, Darius commandeers an M2 Bradley armored personnel carrier with an M242 Bushmaster chaingun as its primary armament. In real life, the U.S Marine Corps use LAV-25 amphibious armored personnel carriers instead of Bradleys (which are used by the US Army), but both have similar armament.

Clearer shot of several M16A2s.
The "Stealth Tank" is a prop vehicle resembling a combination of the American M1 Abrams and German Leopard 2 main battle tanks; the armament configuration, with a roof-mounted secondary turret, seems to be based loosely on a T-72 variant fitted with twin AA guns on the sides of the turret. The vehicle was custom built for the production and all weapons on it are fabrications with the exception of the twin Browning M2s on top. The vehicle is apparently a cut-down Freightliner truck chassis fitted with rubber treads from a piece of construction equipment. This tank was modified to become the Decepticon Devastator / Brawl in the film Transformers.
The tank was later modified to become a Decepticon in Transformers
