Waterworld is a 1995 post apocalyptic action movie starring Kevin Costner as The Mariner, a mutanted lone wanderer who possess webbed feet and gills and travels a flooded Earth in search of dry land. Due to an absurd budget of at least 172 million US dollars (equivalent to over 295 million in 2020), it failed to recoup its costs at the box office. While this caused its name to become synonymous with "bombed film", the film did eventually, barely, recoup its costs after home video release.
The following weapons were used in the film Waterworld:
A Taurus PT99 modified with a barrel extension and other accessories to make it look post-apocalyptic is used by both the Mariner (Kevin Costner) and Deacon (Dennis Hopper) as well as various Smokers.

Remington Rolling Block
The Smoker Pilot (Jack Black) pulls out a Remington Rolling Block pistol and fires to free the harpoon from his plane.

One of the Smokers is seen with what appears to be an SMG, but upon closer inspection, it is rather a disguised pistol equipped with an MP40-style buttstock, quite possibly another Taurus PT99.
One of the many Smokers is seen with a M1928 Thompson.

Norinco Type 56
A few Smokers are armed with unmodified Norinco Type 56 rifles.
Norinco Type 56 (Imported into the U.S. as the Norinco AKS-47 or AKS-47 Sporter) - 7.62x39mm. Rather than having the underfolder pig sticker Bayonet assembly, this has the standard Bayonet lug underneath the gas block as the AKM and later variants.

M16 with M203
A Smoker is seen armed with a M16-series rifle with a M203 underslung.

Short-barreled Cobray CM203
, not attached to a rifle - 37mm flare
The M16/M203 combo is seen at the far left. Note that the grenade launcher is a short barreled version, and does not use the typical "trellised" foregrip mount. This weapon likely is a replica.
The M1903A3 Springfield rifle is seen in the hands of Smokers during the Atoll attack.

Sawn-off Double Barrel Shotgun
During the attack on the Atoll at the film's beginning, one of the Smokers fires a sawn-off double barreled shotgun.

A Smoker fires his short-barreled shotgun. Note the pyrotechnic effects placed in front to simulate a muzzle flash.
A Mossberg 500 shotgun with a wooden forend and a pistol grip is used by the Mariner (Kevin Costner). A humorous thing is the fact that during his assault on the Exxon Valdez, he is wearing a Bandoleer with 12 gauge shells, yet he discards the shotgun without ever using the shells in the bandoleer, which he discards as well.
Mossberg 500AT Shotgun - 12 gauge. Note the wood furniture.
Remington Model 870
One of the Smokers is seen with the Remington Model 870 (with the same decorations as the Mariner's shotgun) when they attack the atoll.

Browning M2 Aircraft Quad Mount
A Browning M2 Aircraft Quad Mount is used by the Smokers during the siege of the Atoll, jamming once before resuming fire.
The Mariner then attaches a harpoon to the hull of the Smoker's ship, causing the Quad Mount to spin and take out the Deacon's boat.

Type 90 Signal Pistol
A Type 90 Signal Pistol is used as a shotgun pistol by a Smoker during the raid on the Atoll.
The 2nd Variation is a modification of the three barreled breach loading flare pistol for ease of production. The Red/Yellow/Red striped sticker was standard on all 3 barreled flare pistols.
Orion Flare Gun
The Deacon (Dennis Hopper) and his henchmen, the Doctor (John Fleck) and the Ledger Guy (Robert Joy) fire 25mm Orion Flare Guns into the air. The guns were fitted with barrel extensions and painted to look like an old metallic signal pistols.
