Dredd is a 2012 science-fiction film that stars Karl Urban as the title character. The film is based on the comic book character "Judge Dredd", who first appeared in comic strips in the British science fiction anthology "2000 AD" and was first adapted into a 1995 feature film that starred Sylvester Stallone as Dredd. The 2012 film is a "reboot" and the cast includes Lena Headey and Olivia Thirlby.

The following weapons were used in the film Dredd:



"Lawgiver Mk. II"

The "Lawgiver Mk. II" is the standard pistol carried by the Judges in the film, including Dredd (Karl Urban) and Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), as well as Judges Lex (Langley Kirkwood), Chan (Karl Thaning), and Kaplan (Michele Levin). It can fire in several different modes, which are selected via voice activation, and features a digital display that keeps track of its remaining ammunition.

When being psychically interrogated by Anderson, Kay (Wood Harris) fires a Lawgiver in his imagination, but it fails to wound her. Later, when he attempts to use Anderson's own Lawgiver on her, he finds that it is coded to its owner's DNA, and will self destruct if anyone else attempts to use it.

Prop wise, the Lawgivers seen in the film appear to be Glock 17 pistols housed in futuristic shells.

The weapon's various fire modes include:

  • Rapid Fire (fully automatic).
  • Armor piercing rounds.
  • Incendiary rounds (these appear to be white phosphorus, and contain vastly more incendiary material than would be possible given their volume).
  • Stun (A non-lethal electric charge that incapacitates the target).
  • "Hot Shot" - a superheated round capable of melting flesh. In the comics, these are heat seeking rounds that track targets based on their specific heat signature. However, it is not clear whether they retain this feature in the film.
  • "High-Ex" (High Explosive).
  • Silencer Mode. The Lawgiver features a built-in suppressor that retracts into the frame when not in use.

A close up shot of the Lawgiver in "Silencer Mode." This appears to be the only firing mode that is not voice activated.
Dredd fires a burst from his Lawgiver. Judging by the numerous casings in the air, it would appear that at least some of the Glock pistols used were converted to full auto. Also note that the muzzle flash is not coming out of the compensator cuts (see above) in the barrel, indicating that they are purely cosmetic.
Here it would appear that Dredd's Lawgiver is in Silencer Mode. However, the shots he fires in this scene sound no different than the unsuppressed shots we hear throughout the rest of the film.

The weapon appears to be set to semi-automatic ("SEMI") fire mode, shows an inactive integrated rangefinder (D for "Distance" with the readout at 0.0) and gives readings for the ammo loads for armor piercing ("AP"), incendiary ("IN"), high explosive ("HE") and standard full metal jacket ("FMJ").

Vektor Z88

Numerous thugs carry what appear to be Beretta 92FS pistols. Because the production was filmed in South Africa, these are likely the Vektor Z88, the South African copy of the Beretta 92FS.

Beretta A302 (Fictional Mock-Up)

Judge Alvarez (Edwin Perry) carries a Beretta A302 fitted with fictional dressings to appear futuristic. While its appearance brings the SPAS-12 to mind, Dredd crew confirm that it is in fact a Beretta A300-series semi-automatic shotgun in a SPAS 12-like casing.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Towards the end of the film, Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) uses a Heckler & Koch MP5A3. This particular weapon is fitted with a "Navy SEF" trigger group, which is essentially a Navy trigger housing with the non ambidextrous SEF selector and markings. Her MP5 switches between having a three-lug barrel and a "smooth" barrel (similar to that of a chopped and converted HK94) in a continuity error.

Vektor R5

Several criminals can be seen with slightly dressed up Galil Pattern rifles. As this feature was filmed in South Africa, it can be assumed that these weapons are actually Vektor R5s.

A Steyr AUG A1 can be briefly seen in Ma Ma's room.

Machine Guns

Motorcycle Machine Guns (Browning .303 Mk II*)

A pair of machine guns can be seen mounted to the sides of the motorcycles used by the Judges. They appear to be fed by drum magazines, and bear a resemblance to the Browning M1919 series.

Prop Minigun

Fictional gatling guns can be seen on pedestal mounts. The concept designer involved confirms that they were "loosely based on the GECAL and were using .50 BMG shell casings [...] except we made ours six-barreled".
