Ghost in the Shell is an American science fiction action picture based on the Japanese Manga of the same name. The story follows the main protagonist, Major Motoko Kusanagi, or "Major", an enhanced cyborg supersoldier working for the Public Security Section 9, investigating her past. The Major was portrayed by Scarlett Johansson.

The following weapons were used in the film Ghost in the Shell:


Major's Pistol (Glock 19)

The Major (Scarlett Johansson) uses a Glock 19 pistol in a futuristic shell. She also uses a white and transparent version of the pistol when using her thermoptic camouflage suit.

IWI Jericho 941 PL

In the bar, a Yakuza gunman uses a IWI Jericho 941 PL with a threaded barrel, which is commandeered by Major. This was more or less Batou's sidearm in the 1995 animated film. Cutter (Peter Ferdinando) also uses one with what appears to be a underbarrel laser sight attachment, as do Hanka bodyguard bots in the opening shootout.

Izhmekh MP-446 Viking

A Izhmekh MP-446 Viking is used by a Yakuza gunman to hold Batou (Pilou Asbæk) at gun point before Batou takes it for himself. A suppressed version is seen at the start of the movie.

Chiappa Rhino 60DS

Togusa (Chin Han) wields a Chiappa Rhino 60DS in the film. This is the modern (and much more accessible) equivalent to the Mateba style revolvers he carries in the animated films, which share the same designer and many design elements.

Submachine Guns

Section 9 Submachine Gun (Heckler & Koch MP5K)

Various members of Section 9 including Batou (Pilou Asbæk), Togusa (Chin Han), Saito (Yutaka Izumihara), Ishikawa (Lasarus Ratuere) and Ladriya (Danusia Samal) carry submachine guns resembling the Heckler & Koch UMP. However, on closer inspection of the ejection port these submachine guns are actually Heckler & Koch MP5Ks inside a futuristic shell. Saito's submachine gun is fitted with an ACOG and suppressor.

IMI Micro Uzi

Kuze (Michael Pitt) uses a pair of Micro Uzis to fend off Batou.

Modified Mini Uzis

As in the 1995 film, gunmen use submachine guns disguised as briefcases. However, instead of Steyr SPPs, the weapons are now modified IMI Mini Uzis. A gunman wields a pair of unmodified ones, save for wraps on the handguards, and a character named Skinny Man fires a highly modified Mini Uzi in a shell, likely designed to strengthen the gun's frame for use with High-Velocity rounds.

Crye Precision SIX12

The shotgun used by Batou (Pilou Asbæk) is a modified Crye Precision SIX12, fitted with the enlarged handguard of the integrally suppressed variant and a cover over the top rail. This shotgun is also used by Borma (Tawanda Manyimo).

Assault Rifles

Major's Police Bike Tavor SMG (IWI X95)

The Major (Scarlett Johansson) also uses a "Police Bike Tavor SMG", which is based on the IWI X95. It seems like this weapon is meant to represent the fictional CZN-M22 used in the 1995 film, which was primarily based on the FN P90. Despite being identified as a submachine gun, the props used for the film presumably still fired 5.56x45mm NATO intermediate cartridges, rather than handgun cartridges.

When Batou and Major go to Hanka Robotics, a large robot guard stands watch with a slightly fictional M4A1.

CSA Sa vz. 58 Compact

One of the Garbage Men uses a CSA Sa vz. 58 Compact in what seems to be a hardened shell used to bolster the gun's frame while using High-Velocity rounds.

Hanka Carbine

Hanka-hired mercenaries use a completely custom carbine, similar in appearance to the 9A-91.

Sniper Rifles

Saito's Rifle

Saito uses an anti-materiel rifle that seems to be made from a Remington Model 700 Tactical Chassis rifle put into a futuristic shell.
