Good screenshots

Surprisingly this movie had some good shots of the guns used by the main characters. There's at least one gun that was kinda obscured. I'll have to look back at it again


since the soldiers are wereing ACU insead of MARPAT would that not make them ARMY

It's UCP. ACU means Army Combat Uniform. At any rate, they're referred to in-movie as Marines. I suspect the creators had originally intended them to be US Army National Guard (which would explain why they're all using M4s instead of M16s) or they just got confused as to what pattern to use. The Resident Evil Wiki used to say "this could have been done to show a more progressive American military, attempting to make up for their mistakes with Raccoon city", but I fail to see how making US Marines wear that awful UCP is supposed to make up for any so-called "mistakes".

You DO know that the Marines also issue M4A1s as well as M16s. Excalibur01 02:52, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Of course I know that. But the Marines don't issue M4s en mass to their troops, the Army does. Add to that the UCP camouflage pattern and the Interceptor body armor (which the USMC replaced with the Modular Tactical Vest in 2006), the exterior is all Army. That's why I think they were originally supposed to be NG troops, but this was changed at some point and I guess they never bothered to correct the visual stuff. Spartan198 14:24, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
It's a movie, and the writers always makes changes to these things all the time. A lot of times when we see Marines in a show or movie, they always seem to have M4s for the most part. I mean in Generation Kill, only a couple of the Marines had M16s. Excalibur01 15:18, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
Well Generation Kill Marines were suppose to be recon Marines, so the choice of M4s wasn't that far fetched. Also, according to the script for RE Degeneration, the Marines were only responsible for the airport clean-up, the soldiers at the WilPharma were actually suppose to be Army Rangers.--Wildcards 00:24, 28 September 2011 (CDT)


In regards to Leon's backup Glock. Two questions from me.

1. How do we conclusively know it's a Glock 33? I've heard it's a Glock 30 before, but the posters don't show very detailed shots of the gun. I'll try to catch a closeup when I rewatch.

2. Are we certain Leon drew from an ankle holster? In the scene where he tosses Claire the Silver Ghost, looks like he drew from his drop leg holster in a continuity error. He's sitting on his other leg and there's no movement to draw back the pant sleeve. Later in the film, when he and a wounded Claire step from an elevator, he draws the Glock from around the waist, towards the rear. He doesn't bend over to access his leg or reach into his coat for the shoulder holster. It almost seems like he's packing the Glock IWB, which would be fairly logical.

How was his determined to be a Glock 33 and not the 26? Excalibur01 (talk) 10:01, 20 March 2016 (EDT)
