The following weapons were used in the film Exterminator 2:
Colt Detective Special

MAC-10 (fitted with a barrel extention)
When Eastland and Be Gee interrupt a deal between X and mafia, Be Gee's (Frankie Faison) Uzi switches to a MAC-10, fitted with a barrel extention. While the extention looks similar to sound suppressor, it doesn't affect the sound of firing.

Custom M2A1 Flamethrower
John Eastland's signature weapon is a custom flamethrower based on an M2A1. This flamethrower appears to be the same one used in the 1983 film Deal of the Century. All scenes with the flamethrower were added in the movie when it was re-edited and re-shot by "film doctor" William Sachs. Robert Ginty didn't appear in these scenes and was replaced by a stuntman.
A view of John Eastland with his flamethrower opens the movie.
