Mission: Impossible II is the second installment in the Mission: Impossible film franchise. The 2000 action sequel was directed by John Woo (Face/Off) and once again stars Tom Cruise as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, who this time travels to Australia to locate a deadly bioweapon before it's sold off by a rogue agent.

The following weapons were used in the film Mission: Impossible II:


Beretta 92FS Brigadier

The main sidearm used by IMF Agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is a Beretta 92FS Brigadier with Hogue rubber grips (this was the exact configuration the Brigadier was originally introduced with). Hunt uses it along with a Beretta 92FS Compact, often together at once. Hunt carries the Brigadier in a shoulder holster. It's later held by Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott) during his final confrontation with Ethan. This was almost certainly the first film to feature the 92FS Brigadier, as the design had only been introduced in 1999. This means it was probably a "hero gun", used in the film as a form of product placement to generate public interest for a new design.

Note how much taller and thicker the steel is on the locking block points on the slide. This is historically a weak point in the slide and was the primary reason the Brigadier was designed.

Beretta 92 Compact

Along with his Beretta 92FS Brigadier, Hunt also carries a Beretta 92FS Compact with a Hogue Handall grip sleeve as his backup gun. He carries this handgun in a lefty Galco SOB holster allowing for a weak-side draw (permitting for a drawn pistol in each hand).

Sphinx AT 2000

Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott) carries a Sphinx AT 2000 pistol in "duotone" finish as his main sidearm. This weapon is a Swiss-made derivative of the CZ 75, and is chambered for 9x19mm (as are many of the pistols in the movie).

Vektor CP1

Hugh Stamp (Richard Roxburgh) carries the Vektor CP1 as his main sidearm throughout the movie. The Vektor is an interesting choice for Stamp, since the character appears to have a South African security background, and Vektor as a company is apparently a small-arms division of DENEL Corporation, a group with ties to the South African military and security apparatus.

Another of Ambrose's men fires a Glock 17 at the helicopter carrying Luther (Ving Rhames). Glock 17s are also used by the security personnel in the mansion at the beginning of the film.

Heckler & Koch USP Compact

A Heckler & Koch USP Compact is carried by Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott) as a backup weapon, along with his Sphinx AT 2000. It is dropped in the sand when Hunt and Ambrose jump from their motorcycles to engage in hand to hand combat, and later used by Hunt. While the full-size USP had appeared in numerous movies and television shows at the time, Mission: Impossible II is the first known cinema appearance of the smaller USP Compact.

NOTE: There was much confusion regarding the origins of the USPc during the movie's release, since Ambrose is never shown carrying or drawing the weapon in the finished film. However, in the script, the fight between Ambrose and Hunt began on a rock shelf overlooking the beach after the motorcycle crash. Ambrose was supposed to draw his backup USPc after losing his Sphinx AT 2000 and then point it at Hunt, before Hunt charged him and sent them both falling to the beach below, thereby causing him to drop the USPc in the sand. This scene was removed in the final cut of the movie, though snippets of the scene appeared in some trailers for the film.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A2

Most of the BioCyte security guards and some of Sean Ambrose's (Dougray Scott) men, are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A2 submachine guns.

Heckler & Koch MP5K

During the final chase, several of Ambrose's men use Heckler & Koch MP5Ks fitted with extended barrels (these are not MP5K-PDWs as reported previously; they lack the folding stock).

When the BioCyte guards are responding to the break-in at the lab, several of them run past a dead guard who has an Ithaca 37 shotgun lying on the floor beside him.

DPMS M-37 Flare Launcher

After being shot at, Luther puts down his Colt and picks up a DPMS M-37 Flare Launcher to use against Ambrose's men. This launcher is in the pattern of an AR-15 upper receiver, so to be used must be mounted on an appropriate lower. In this case it has been mated with an M4 type lower, giving the launcher a retractable stock, and has a C-MORE sight mounted on the rear receiver. Although in reality this launcher is a 37mm gas/flare gun, in this case it is depicted in the film as firing 40mm HE grenades.

M26 hand grenade

In his fight with Stamp, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) tosses an M26 hand grenade through Stamps's legs, distracting him and allowing Ethan to defeat him until the grenade's explosion knocked out Stamp.

Dan-Inject JM Standard (as a custom rocket launcher)

A custom rocket launcher based on a Dan-Inject JM tranq. rifle is used to fire a missile containing mission information for Ethan at the film's beginning.

The original barrel of the tranquilizer rifle has been removed. The scope base, which has a C-more sight attached, doubles as a launch pad for the missile. Realistically, the missile's backblast would burn the shooters eyes out.
