Resident Evil: Degeneration
Resident Evil: Degeneration is a computer-generated film released by Capcom in 2008. Degeneration is canon to the main-line video game series, unlike the Paul W.S. Anderson live-action films (which haven't been well received by fans and critics).
The story takes place in the fictional city of Harvardville, U.S.A. in the year 2005 (one year after the events of Resident Evil 4), where it is revealed that in the seven years that have followed since the destruction of Raccoon City in 1998 (as depicted in Resident Evil 2 and 3) and the dissolution of Umbrella Corporation, a pharmaceutical company called WilPharma has taken the reigns of continuing the study/research of the T-Virus to prevent any future biohazardous outbreaks or future bio-terrorism attacks. However, when a T-Virus outbreak occurs without warning at the city's local airport, special agent Leon S. Kennedy is called in to deal with the outbreak, and to find out who or what is behind it. During which he is reunited with his old partner, Claire Redfield, and along with the help of several other allies, they both begin to discover that there is more behind the circumstances surrounding this T-Virus outbreak than there seems to be...
The following weapons were used in the film Resident Evil: Degeneration:
Leon's primary weapon throughout the movie is the same USP/Sigma/P85-inspired fictional handgun he used in Resident Evil 4, nicknamed Silver Ghost, with the laser sight being swapped for a flashlight.
Heckler & Koch USP - 9x19mm
Smith & Wesson Sigma - 9x19mm

Leon grips his Silver Ghost as he infiltrates the overrun airport with the S.R.T. members.

Trapped underwater, Leon shoots a glass wall so he and Angela can escape.
Leon aims his Silver Ghost at the G-Virus infected Curtis Miller during the climax in WilPharma's underground facility.
Leon keeps a Glock 26 with a Pearce Grip +2 mag extension in an shoulder holster as a backup gun, which he lends to Claire during the latter half of the movie. This is also seen in the promotional posters as Claire's gun.
After kicking off a zombie trying to bite him Leon draws his backup Glock 26.

Claire and Leon train their handguns at Frederic Downing.
Angela's Custom Glock
Angela's sidearm is a Glock 17 fitted with a Glock 26 slide, Novak-style sights, and a barrel weight/compensator. This seems to be based on the "G26 AdVanced" frmm Tokyo Marui, an airsoft company that provides reference material on firearms for Capcom, as Angela's Glock has identical modifications to it (the only difference being the Glock 17's full length grip/frame).

Angela sneaks up behind Frederic Downing, and points her Glock at his back.
After disarming Frederic, Angela keeps her Glock pointed at him as he pleads for his life.
Greg draws his own sidearm (which looks like an exact copy of Angela's Glock) and shoots a zombie that is grabbing him.
Both the Harvardville Airport Police and Senator Davis' bodyguards carry 3rd Generation Glock 17 pistols. At least one of the Rangers at Harvardville Airport has a Glock 17 holstered on his IBA.
Glock 17 (Gen 3) - 9x19mm
Davis' bodyguard makes an unflattering face while trying to clear civilians out of the way so he can shoot the attacking zombie. Note both the accessory rail (indicating a Generation 3 model) and the bodyguard's good trigger discipline.
Davis' bodyguard fires two rounds from his Glock 17 into a zombie's chest, which ends up doing nothing since the zombies of Resident Evil are based on the Living Dead, and can only be killed by destroying the brain.
Davis' bodyguard checks the pulse of a security guard bitten by a zombie, unaware that the guard will very soon become a zombie too.
Walther P5 Compact
At the end of the film, Frederic Downing uses a nickel-plated Walther P5 Compact near the end of the film. He racks the slide after drawing it, indicating he carries the pistol without a round chambered - not the best idea for self-defense. Then again, considering that he's a corporate executive, he probably hasn't had very much formal training.
Walther P5 Compact - 9x19mm
Frederic Downing brandishes his Walther P5 Compact at Claire and Leon in the film's climax.

Heckler & Koch VP70M
In a flashback of the Raccoon City Incident (see Resident Evil 2), we see Leon with his VP70M machine pistol that he used when he was part of the Raccoon PD.
Heckler & Koch VP70M with stock - 9x19mm
Leon fires his stockless VP70M at several zombies during the flashback to the events in Raccoon City in 1998 (The year that Resident Evil 2 takes place).
Angela's Custom MP5K PDW
Angela's primary weapon is a custom Heckler & Koch MP5K-PDW. It features an interesting vertical foregrip attachment that is latched onto the weapon with a thumbhole and an integral flashlight. The front and rear sights have been replaced with a single piece that forms a rail across the top of the weapon similar to that of the H&K G36C's rail. The PDW's standard folding stock has been replaced with a retractable buttstock like those found on the full-sized MP5A3 and MP5A5.
Heckler & Koch MP5K-PDW - 9x19mm
MP5K "Reverse Stretch" - 9x19mm. This is a custom weapon created by combining an MP5K front end with a full-size MP5 receiver. This results in an MP5K capable of accepting a standard MP5 stock, in this case an MP5F retractable stock.
Angela searches the overrun airport for survivors with her MP5K.
Angela prepares to fire her MP5K at an approaching zombie.
Angela's custom MP5K lays on the floor of the S.R.T. van.

Angela and Leon run away from an imminent explosion. The scene provides a full view of her MP5K PDW slung across her shoulder.
Greg is seen using a M4A1 Carbine with a railed handguard and an LMT fixed A2 rear sight. Military personnel sent to clean up the airport are also seen using M4A1s with the carry handles attached. In the English/International version of Degeneration, the military men are misidentified as US Marines, but the official biohazard DEGENERATION Visual & Scenario Archive book has the Japanese-based script properly identifying them as US Army Rangers.

Two of the Rangers carry M4A1 Carbines with optics, flip up BUIS, and M203 under-barrel attachments when they fight a G Virus infected Curtis Miller in WilPharma's underground facility. Leon later picks up one of these carbines.

...he nearly squeezes off a shot from his M203...
...but ends in getting brutally sliced up by Curtis.
Leon grabs a M4A1 SOPMOD and utilizes the grenade launcher to bring down the ceiling on Curtis. Note the freshly ejected 40mm case. The grenade launching optic appears to be the Armson reflex sight used in the Milkor grenade launchers
Leon aims the M203 at steel beams above Curtis.
Remington Model 1100
Claire is armed with a Remington Model 1100 in the flashback of the Raccoon City Incident. In Resident Evil 2 the shotgun was available only to Leon, and is not found during Claire's campaign. It was likely borrowed from Leon as she was in close proxy to him in the flashback.
Remington Model 1100 Tactical Shotgun - 12 gauge
Claire fires the Remington Model 1100 at nearby zombies during the flashback to the events of Resident Evil 2
, during the zombie outbreak in Raccoon City in 1998.
Leon throws a knife at the giant shoulder eyeball of the G-infected Curtis. Based on the scalloped handle and crossguard shape, it is the same model of knife Leon used in Resident Evil 4.
