The Three Musketeers is the 2011 feature film adaptation of the Alexandre Dumas classic story The Three Musketeers. Filmed in 3D, this adaptation was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and stars Ray Stevenson, Matthew Macfadyen, and Luke Evans as the title characters and the cast also includes Milla Jovovich, Logan Lerman, Christoph Waltz and Orlando Bloom.

The following weapons were used in the film The Three Musketeers:


Wheellock Pistol

Several characters use Wheellock Pistols throughout the film, including the three musketeers: Aramis (Luke Evans), Porthos (Ray Stevenson), and Athos (Matthew MacFayden). Athos is notably seen dual-wielding the pistols in the film. Captain Rochefort (Mads Mikkelsen) also wields dual wheellock pistols in the film.

Flintlock Pocket Pistol

Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich) uses a short-barreled Flintlock Pocket Pistol in the beginning of the film. Later on, she wields another one, this time with a slightly longer barrel. A Flinlock pocket pistol is also visible in among Athos' gun bag when the musketeers are planning on getting back at the Duke of Buckingham. A CGI pocket flintlock pistol is also visible during the begining credits.

Custom Umbrella Harpoon Guns

Athos uses two self-loading, two-shot umbrella guns during the beginning of the film. The weapons are completely fictional, and made up for the film, but might have been inspired by wheellock rifle designs.

Athos' guns open up like umbrellas, and he fires them. Both of the guns are able to fire two projectiles without Athos having to load them.
Aramis tries to use the two custom umbrella guns after he and the two other musketeers are poisoned near the beginning of the film.

Grappling Gun

The three musketeers also have a custom grappler gun in their collection. Again, this gun is a prop, and was made up for the movie.

Here we can see the box on the side of the gun that resembles a magazine, or a stripper clip.


Dozens of CGI crossbows are seen inside the walls during the beginning heist in Venice, Italy. They are rigged to fire spiked balls.

Airship weapons


The airship that the three musketeers steal from the Duke of Buckingham has several different offensive weapons, a customized (fictional) flamethrower among them. Athos most notably operates the hand cranked custom flamethrower during the attack on the Tower of London.

Planchet (James Corden) operates the flamethrower.

Rotating Cannon Table

One of the offensive weapons on the airship is a rotating cannon table, similar to real-life Nartov Mortar System, with dozens of small cannons fitted onto it, allowing a person to fire them in rapid succession. Although the table looks cool, it would most certainly not work in real life, much as real Nartov system examples.
