RoboCop 2 is the 1990 sequel to RoboCop. Peter Weller returns as the cybernetic law enforcement officer, who now battles an even more sadistic gang led by a deranged killer and drug lord known as Cain (Tom Noonan), while mega-corporation Omni Consumer Products prepares to take private ownership of Detroit and unveil a new, more powerful law enforcement unit. The film was directed by Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back and Never Say Never Again) from a story written by noted graphic novelist Frank Miller, who also provided the story for 1993's RoboCop 3.

The following weapons were used in the film RoboCop 2:



Beretta 93R "Auto 9"

As in the previous film, RoboCop (Peter Weller) carries the Beretta 93R "Auto 9" as his sidearm of choice. Moreover, he is actually seen reloading the weapon, something rarely shown throughout the films. A prop Auto 9 pistol is used by the first malfunctioning RoboCop 2 prototype, which is a stop-motion model.

An OCP video demonstration shows one of the 'failed prototypes' (a stop-motion model) wielding the Auto 9. Note the prototype fires single shots unlike RoboCop who generally fires in bursts. TRIVIA: The two failed prototypes were a result of Visual Effects Director Craig Davies trying to imagine the most terrible things that could happen to a human, coming up with the idea of a severed head placed in a diving bell and a person completely encased in metal with only slits for the mouth and eyes. The face in the first failed prototype is Craig Davies himself, photographed by Phil Tippett.

SIG-Sauer P228

Officer Anne Lewis (Nancy Allen) carries a SIG-Sauer P228 as her sidearm throughout the movie, which was a brand-new pistol at the time that RoboCop 2 was made (this is, in all likelihood, the first film ever to feature this gun, because the P228 was first introduced in 1990, the same year this film was released). The SIG P228 can also be seen in the hands of the Little League coach-turned-robber (David Dwyer) during the incident at the electronics store. A Detroit Police officer is also seen with one during the end battle with RoboCain.

Interestingly enough, RoboCop was the first movie to prominently feature a SIG-Sauer P226 (including firing sequences) and RoboCop 2 was the first to prominently feature a P228.

IMI Desert Eagle Mark I

There are several appearances of the Desert Eagle Mark I in the film. The first is during the gun store robbery in the opening, when one of the robbers steals a blued .357 Magnum version and uses it to kill the store owner. The second appearance is in the hands of Hob (Gabriel Damon), who uses a nickel .44 Magnum model to shoot RoboCop in the visor after RoboCop's command system prevents him from shooting a kid, a fact Hob torments him on.

Submachine Guns


Hob (Gabriel Damon) carries a light blue DEB M21 as his weapon-of-choice throughout the film. This gun was originally designed by Utah Connor as the UC-9, and later renamed to DEB M21 following Connor's collaboration with David E. Boatman to produce the weapon on a larger scale. Utah Connor designed the weapon as a a concealable foldable submachine gun that can be folded into a small, nondescript box, which can be fitted with even more mundane-looking accessories to make it look even less like a firearm. The blue exterior and antenna gives the gun the appearance of a personal radio, in order to fool unsuspecting cops who don't realize that Hob is a young drug lord.

Heckler & Koch MP5K

The Heckler & Koch MP5K is used by many of Cain's thugs. In one notable scene, RoboCop kills a thug who is using his MP5K to hold a baby hostage.

Calico M950

A thug at the Nuke lab shootout uses a Calico M950 with 100-round magazine and converted to full-automatic. It can be differentiated from the standard full-auto M950A by the lack of a forward pistol handgrip. These weapons are also used by OCP security during the ending battle with "RoboCain".

Calico M955A

In a very brief shot, the Calico M955A is seen picked up (and discarded) by one of the thugs robbing the gun store. The gun is identified via its longer telescopic stock that sets it apart from both the M950 and the M960 variants.

A MAC-10 (with unusual extended magazine) is used by one of Hob's thugs in the scene where RoboCop 2 breaks up his meeting with the mayor. These weapons are also seen in the hands of Detroit Police officers towards the end of the film.

Intratec TEC-9

One of the thugs at the beginning Nuke lab shootout has what appears to be a Intratec TEC-9. It could also be the similar-looking Kimel AP-9, however the overall look more closely resembles the actual TEC-9 rather than the AP-9, most particularly the straight magazine well (as the one on the AP-9 is slanted).

Rifles / Carbines

Norinco Type 56 (all variants)

Norinco Type 56 AK rifles are a very common weapon in the film, generally used by the henchmen that follow Cain (Tom Noonan). Nearly every variation of the Type 56 appears in the film, including the fixed-stock Type 56, the under-folding stock Type 56-1, and the side-folding Type 56-2. The overwhelming majority of Type 56 rifles in the film seem to have some type of unusual lengthened flash hider which looks similar to that of the AK-74, and some of the rifles also have Bakelite magazines. A scant few of the rifles feature AKM-style slanted compensators (often seen on exported Type 56s) rather than the flash-hiders; at least one Type 56 is seen loaded with a drum magazine.

Norinco Type 56 (Imported into the U.S. as the Norinco AKS-47 or AKS-47 Sporter) - 7.62x39mm. This particular gun lacks the "pig sticker" bayonet, which was standard on PLA-issue Type 56s, but much rarer on the export versions.
Chet (professional stuntman Thomas Rosales Jr.), one of the gun store robbers, grabs a Chinese Norinco Type 56 AK rifle and an M136 AT4 launcher. Note this Type 56 has the AKM-style compensator, rather than the flash-hiders generally seen on the film's Type 56s (and indeed, seen on the rifle fired by Chet briefly afterward - see below).
Chet fires a fixed-stock Type 56 at RoboCop. Note this rifle has the custom flash-hider installed. The robber next to him fires a Daewoo K1A carbine.

Many of the Detroit Police Officers in the film are seen using M16A2 assault rifles fitted with MWG "90-rounder" inverted drums, though at least a few have 30-round translucent magazines. Like most of the Hollywood "M16A2s", these are seen firing on automatic, and all have M16A1-style flash hiders (as evidenced by the "starburst" pattern muzzle flash whenever they're fired).

Daewoo K1A

At the film's beginning, one of the thugs ransacking the gun store fires a Korean-made Daewoo K1A carbine at the police cruiser. Some of the Detroit Police Officers also use the Daewoo K1A carbine. Like their M16A2s, these are also fitted with 90-round inverted drum magazines. All of them also seem to have M16A1-style flash hiders rather than the long, conical flash hider that is more commonly seen on the K1As.

Pauza P50

During the gun store robbery in the beginning, the robbers can be seen taking scoped Pauza P50 long-range .50 caliber semi-automatic sniper rifles from a display case which is specifically marked "Pauza Specialties". Scoped Pauza P50s can be seen in the hands of Cain's thugs twice more in the film - Once when a sniper attempts to shoot RoboCop (but is shot in the eye through the scope by RoboCop's Auto-9 before getting a shot off) and again by one of Hob's men during the shootout when RoboCop 2 (AKA RoboCain) interrupts Hob's meeting with the mayor. RoboCop himself later uses a Pauza P50 without a scope, representing the 'Cobra Assault Cannon' from the previous film, when he confronts RoboCop 2/RoboCain at the OCP Civic Centrum.

Steyr AUG

A gunstore robber and several Detroit officers can be seen with Steyr AUG A1 assault rifles. Several are fitted with 42-round magazines, just like in the first movie.

Steyr AUG A1 - 5.56x45mm
A gun store robber (Carl Ciarfalio) fires at RoboCop with an M16A2 fitted with a 90-round drum magazine. Note the slung Steyr AUG, minus the magazine.

Benelli M3 Super 90

Officer Anne Lewis (Nancy Allen) can be seen armed with a pistol-gripped Benelli M3 Super 90 shotgun in the climax when the cops are shooting at RoboCop 2, AKA "RoboCain". Several other officers use these shotguns as well. As with several other weapons, this is one of the earliest appearances of the Benelli M3 in a film or television series.

Remington 870 (various variants)

Several types of Remington 870 shotgun are used in the film. Angie (Galyn Görg) can be seen using a pistol-gripped Remington 870 fitted with a grenade launcher during the shootout at the Nuke plant. Another pistol-gripped, folding-stock Remington 870 shotgun is briefly visible in the hands of a Detroit police officer in the climax. A standard-stock 870 with extended magazine tube is seen in the hands of one of Cain's thugs at River Rouge. A long-barrel field variant is among the weapons retrieved by one of the gun store robbers near the beginning of the film.

M136 AT4

During the gun store robbery scene, the Hispanic robber Chet (played by Thomas Rosales Jr., who always plays characters in movies who get killed) fires at RoboCop's cruiser with an M136 AT4 rocket launcher. This was one of the earliest appearances of the launcher in a feature film.

FIM-43 Redeye

When thugs rob the gun store at the film's beginning, a FIM-43 Redeye can be seen in the case ransacked by Chet.

FIM-43 Redeye - 70mm
The Redeye launcher is visible in the bottom right of the frame. Although only a small portion of the launcher is visible, it can be identified by the shape of the pistol grip and BCU (Battery/Coolant Unit).

ATGM Launcher (Mockup)

Chet (Thomas Rosales Jr.) is seen using a massive rocket launcher on the police cruiser driven by RoboCop. The launcher is clearly a prop using a pyrotechnic charge to simulate firing, and appears to have been designed as a much stubbier and bulkier version of the French Mistral surface-to-air missile system.

Gun Store Weapons

Near the beginning of the film, thugs are seen breaking into a gun store that houses several rifles, shotguns, handguns, along with various heavy weaponry (including anti-tank launchers!) One has to question why a gun store owner would keep such hardware so lightly protected and why the owner wouldn't be armed himself.

The robber on the left retrieves a Desert Eagle handgun, while the one on the right carts off several rifles and shotguns.

Chet (Thomas Rosales Jr.) retrieves a Norinco Type 56 rifle along with, of all things, an M136 AT4 light anti-tank launcher. A FIM-43 Redeye MANPADS is also seen in the display case.

RoboCop 2 / RoboCain Armaments

"RoboCop 2" or "RoboCain", the law enforcement droid that Cain's brain is implanted in, is armed with several heavy weapons. These are simply props: during combat sequences, RoboCain is either a nine-foot full-scale upper torso rig fitted with fake weapons, or one of twelve 12-inch tall stop-motion puppets (8 fully articulated ones for different animation units to meet the tight shooting schedule, and 4 "stunt" puppets cast from the articulated ones in semiflexible urethane), with gunfire being created by the stop-motion team rather than blanks fired from real weapons.

M134 Minigun (prop)

A fake M134 Minigun fitted with odd rounded muzzle devices is the main weapon of RoboCop 2/RoboCain. The Minigun is seen being fired when RoboCop 2 bursts in on Hob's meeting with the mayor as well as when the droid is introduced to the public towards the end of the film. The most obvious sign of this not being a real weapon is that the prop M134 never ejects spent casings or belt links. About 50% of shots of the minigun firing were a motorised prop, while the rest were animated by hand by the animation team using stop-motion.

M134 Minigun - 7.62x51mm
RoboCain raises his Minigun at RoboCop.

Heavy Caliber Cannon

RoboCain is also armed with dual large-caliber cannons similar to the ones mounted on ED-209. They're fired at the original RoboCop during the final confrontation.
