Chappie (2015)

Chappie is a 2015 science fiction film directed by Neill Blomkamp (Elysium and District 9) that revolves around a law enforcement robot who starts to learn about human emotions after being captured by criminals. The film stars Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver, with Sharlto Copley providing motion capture and voice for "Chappie".

The following weapons were used in the film Chappie:


Glock 17

Vincent Moore (Hugh Jackman) is seen carrying what appears to be a Glock 17 as his primary firearm. At one point, the Glock is fitted with an extended magazine. The weapon starts out with an OD Green frame, but later switches to a standard black frame. Amerika (Jose Pablo Cantillo) also carries a standard Glock as his sidearm throughout the film.

Vektor SP1 Sport

Ninja's (Ninja) main sidearm is a Vektor SP1 Sport fitted with a red dot sight. Chappie also handles the weapon during a few scenes.

Vektor SP1 Sport - 9x19mm
The first time we see the SP1 Sport, it is a stunt casting or replica. This is during the scene where Ninja smashes Deon's car window and kidnaps him. Note that the prop's red dot sight is bent and there is clearly no glass in it.
Ninja brandishes the SP1 Sport when teaching Chappie how to shoot, demonstrating poor trigger discipline.

Vektor SP1

Hippo (Brandon Auret) uses a two-tone Vektor SP1 during the climax.

Varan PMX-90

Hippo (Brandon Auret) uses two Varan PMX-90s as his main sidearms. One has a stainless slide and the other a stainless frame with a standard slide and grips, making it reverse two-tone.

Webley .38 Mk III

One of Hippo's (Brandon Auret) men is seen with a MAT-49. Another is seen held by one of the King's (Eugene Khumbanyiwa) bodyguards.

Vektor R5

The main weapon carried by the law enforcement robots is the Vektor R5 carbine. One of Moore's operatives is armed with a Vektor rifle in a tactical configuration with UTG quad rail mounts and CAA railed handguards. The rifle appears very similar to ones used in Strike Back - Season 3.

Mk 18 Mod 0

Ninja uses a custom Mk 18 Mod 0. It is fitted with a suppressor, ELCAN SpecterDR 1x/4X scope, PEQ-16 laser/light module, and flashlight, all painted school bus yellow with pink or yellow magazines.

Ninja has a keychain that looks to emulate his signature rifle, although the keychain more closely resembles a SIG SG 550 series rifle.

Custom AK

Hippo (Brandon Auret) arms himself with a custom gold-plated AK shorty rifle. This appears to be the same custom-made AK seen in Lord of War.

In this shot it is clear that the AK has been reloaded, as the magazine loaded is a standard black magazine rather than the gold-plated one.


Several characters in the film use AKMS rifles, most notably Amerika (Jose Pablo Cantillo).

Vektor R1

What appear to be Vektor R1 rifles are seen a few times in the film, first in the hands of a police sniper in the opening, and later in the hands of one of Hippo's men during the finale.

Remington 870

Ninja (Ninja) uses a short-barrelled Remington 870 during several scenes. It has an aftermarket foregrip and a sidesaddle shell holder. A police Scout is also seen using a Remington 870 Riot Gun later in the film.

Denel Inkuzi PAW

Deon steals a Denel Inkuzi PAW from the Tetravall armory, and it is used by Yo-Landi (Yo-Landi Visser) and Chappie during the battle with the MOOSE.

Deon takes out the PAW. This can be seen to be the Inkuzi PAW production version rather than the PAW-20 prototype through the use of the 6-round drum magazine.
Chappie identifies the PAW as a weapon.

The markings are clearly visible as Chappie readies the PAW. The horizontal magazine release is another sign that this is a production Inkuzi PAW, as the prototypes had a vertical mag release: this was changed as it was possible for recoil to operate the lever and drop the mag.

The Mk 19 grenade launcher is also seen mounted on the MOOSE.

Fictional MLRS

A fictional Multiple Launch Rocket System is seen on the MOOSE. It seems to have at least two different warheads loaded; one is a direct-attack rocket, and the other is what Vincent refers to as a 'cluster bomb', which fires in a top-attack flight profile and rains down multiple projectiles on the enemy.

Deon steals a belt of grenades from the Tetravaal armory, which are later used by Chappie. They bear a resemblance to the fictional grenades seen in Elysium. Although they strongly resemble hand grenades, they are in fact triggered using a detonator.

Ninja and Yo-Landi's Armory

Ninja (Ninja) and Yo-Landi (Yolandi Visser) have a very stylized armory in their hideout, with colored outlines around each weapon's mounting.

Ninja retrieves his M4A1 from the armory. On the left we see Amerika's Uzi, blank outlines where Yolandi's Armscor BXP and Amerika's AKMS would hang, a Vektor R6, and a custom AR-15 rifle. On the right is Ninja's Vektor SP1 Sport, a blank space for Yolandi's Micro Uzi, Ninja's SBS, another AKMS, and a Vektor R5.


Various other weapons are seen in the Tetravaal Armory, and at Hippo's (Brandon Auret) hideout.

A PKM machine gun and a Mk 19 grenade launcher can be seen in the Tetravaal armory, as well as what appears to be the LSAT machine gun in the foreground, likely an airsoft prop.
Many rifles are seen in the pool at Hippo's hideout.
