Oblivion is a 2013 science-fiction film that is an adaptation of a unpublished graphic novel co-written by Joseph Kosinski (who also directed this film). The film is set in the year 2077, sixty years after Earth has been devastated from the effects of an alien invasion. Most of humanity has left Earth for a massive tetrahedral space station (called Tet). Tom Cruise stars in the film as Jack Harper, one of the few remaining humans on Earth assigned to protect and maintain drones that extract Earth's resources to fuel the Tet. With only a couple of weeks away from joining the rest of humanity, Jack discovers a crashed spacecraft that forces him to question everything he believes. Kosinski would subsequently reunite with Cruise for the 2022 film Top Gun: Maverick.

The following weapons were used in the film Oblivion:



Jack's Rifle (Bushmaster ACR)

Throughout the film, Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) carries a futuristic rifle as his main armament, which is a dressed up Bushmaster ACR. The rifle has a shell attached to it that surrounds the stock and upper receiver to make it appear more futuristic, and the base-rifle is always seen loaded with 10 round magazines. It has an Oveready/TorchLAB weaponlight above the barrel, integrated inside the shell. Harper always carries the rifle on a custom white Magpul MS-3 sling. Julia Rusakova (Olga Kurylenko) briefly has the rifle slung on her back as she goes to the Radiation zone with Jack on a motorbike.

According to ISS, they had to custom make the short 10 round mag to make it even shorter for the movie.

AKM (custom)

A couple of the resistance fighters carry heavily customized AKM rifles in the film, including Kara (Zoe Bell). The rifles have had their stocks removed, and a large loop-grip fitted on the usual AKM-grip. The rifles are also fitted with black furniture.

Barrett M82A1

One of the resistance members (Tim J. Smith) uses a Barrett M82A1 fitted with a custom scope, a large muzzle brake resembling an M107A1 one (except with 5 chambers rather than 4), and a skeleton shell while fighting a drone.

Sykes' Skeleton Rifle

Sergeant Sykes (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) carries a skeletony sniper rifle as his primary firearm in the film. Unlike the other skeleton rifles built on Heckler & Koch MP5s, this particular rifle doesn't seem to be based on anything.

Futuristic Pistol

Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) carries this futuristic pistol as his sidearm. The pistol is purportedly a custom designed 3D printed prop for the film.

Several pistols can be seen on a gun rack as Jack picks his sidearm.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch UMP45

Some of the resistance members carry Heckler & Koch UMP45 submachine guns with futuristic embellishments. Julia Rusakova (Olga Kurylenko) uses one of the guns after its previous owner dies. The UMPs can be identified as the .45 ACP version, due to the straight magazines.

Machine Guns

Browning M2

Two Browning M2 machine guns are mounted on a mount improvised from a drone's armored shell in the film's climactic battle. Malcolm Beech (Morgan Freeman) blazes away in a particularly heroic stand.
