The following weapons were used in the anime film Appleseed Alpha:
Deunan Knute's sidearm is a custom M1911A1. It has rear cocking serrations (standard), a ring hammer, a lighter rail, and custom grips.
Talos' sidearm is a Glock 17 with a light attached.
Heckler & Koch MK23
Briareos is breifly seen handing Olson a Heckler & Koch Mark 23.
The rifles in the hands of both Deunan and Briareos (Only in the beginning of the film) appears to be CQBRs with futuristic furniture and an EOtech attached. The handguard looks like it's based partly on the KAC quad-rail. Some cyborgs used similar rifles but without the EOtech or the carrying handle. Under the handguard looks like the handguard taken from an F2000. Nyx stated that these were "6mm assault rifles".
FN F2000/FN P90 hybrid rifle
Two-Horns' men uses FN SCAR-Ls as their primary rifles.
Briareos' main rifle for the rest of the film is a custom Barrett M107 that's been altered to look futuristic using a V shaped muzzle brake and a spare magazine holder built into the stock.
Two-Horns' men also uses Benelli M4s with the stocks removed.
One of Two Horns' men used an RPG-7 in the final battle.
Briareos gave Olson a grenade, who then gives it to Iris to use. Briareos also uses one at the end of the movie.
