RoboCop 3 is the third and final installment in the original RoboCop film series. Robert John Burke replaced Peter Weller in the role of the cybernetic law enforcement officer, who joins a band of resistance fighters who rise up to oppose the violent, unilateral takeover of their Detroit neighborhood by the OCP corporation. The film was directed by Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad) from a story by graphic novelist Frank Miller, who had also provided the story for RoboCop 2.
The following weapons were used in the film RoboCop 3:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Beretta 92FS (mocked up as Beretta 93R "Auto 9")
RoboCop (Robert John Burke) once again carries the "Auto 9" as his main sidearm. He is first seen using it at the church in his first confrontation with OCP Rehabilitation Concepts Commander Paul McDaggett (John Castle). He later uses it at the motel against Rehab officers as well as during the chase with McDaggett.
The live-fire "Auto-9" in this film is NOT the same as the gun used in the previous films: When the actual original Beretta 93R-based gun was unable to be provided in time for filming, Gibbons LTD (the armory house that took over supplying the vast majority of weapons in this film) subsequently made a new one, based off a Beretta 92FS converted to automatic. In several shots (as well as many promotional images) the telltale slide decocker safety of the 92FS is visible (the 93R features a frame-mounted safety akin to the older Berettas) as well as (if one looks close) the more curved/rounded-bottom trigger guard of the 92 series compared with the more straight/flat-bottomed trigger guard of the 93R. Other more minuscule differences, such as the exact design of the raised rear sight, are also slightly different between the two versions. This particular version would be the one later re-used in other productions, most notably Sin City.

The Glock 17 is the sidearm of Officer Anne Lewis (Nancy Allen) as well as other Detroit officers in the film. The vast majority of the Glocks are fitted with a laser sight module, which appears to have been a custom design created for the movie (at the time of filming, under-barrel lasers for Glocks were rare, with the exception being the BA2 - a different model than that seen in this movie). One of the laser-sighted Glock 17s from this movie was eventually re-used in Carnosaur and Drop Zone.

Desert Eagle Mark I
The Desert Eagle Mark I is the main sidearm of OCP Rehabilitation Concepts Commander Paul McDaggett (John Castle). Desert Eagles are also carried by other Rehabilitation Officers. One is notoriously shot out of a Rehab officer's hand and sent spinning in the air with rounds fired by RoboCop's Auto-9. The Desert Eagle used by Clarence Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith) is seen in a brief flashback to Murphy's murder.

Rifles / Carbines
The Colt XM177E2 'Commando' is the main weapon carried by McDaggett during the takeover of Cadillac Heights. XM177E2-style carbines are also seen used by other Rehab officers. The Rehabs' carbines are generally seen with mounted M203 grenade launchers. Standard XM177E2-style carbines (Without M203s) are also used throughout the film by Resistance members as well as SplatterPunks gang members enlisted by the Rehabs during the battle for Cadillac Heights.

The main weapons of the Rehabilitation Concepts officers are Ruger AC556 rifles fitted in a Muzzelite MZ14 Bullpup configuration, with scope and tactical flash light mounted on a rail. Several are seen wielded throughout the film by Rehab officers, a couple are also used by the SplatterPunks that fight against the Resistance fighters and police defending Cadillac Heights.

Heckler & Koch MP5K
A SplatterPunk at the film's beginning appears to fire a Heckler & Koch MP5K at RoboCop. Heckler & Koch MP5Ks are also used by Kanemitsu security guards at the company's main headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. A few are seen among the weapons issued to SplatterPunks gang members by the Rehabs just prior to the battle for Cadillac Heights. Upon closer inspection, several of these weapons appear to be Daisy airsoft replicas.

The Uzi is a common weapon throughout the film, being carried by Rehab officers and some of the resistance fighters. Uzis are seen being used by both sides during the attack on Cadillac Heights. An Uzi is also used by an OCP security guard while guarding the premises of OCP's main headquarters in Detroit, Michigan.

A similar MAC-11 is wielded by another Rehab officer that attempts to stop the illegal TV broadcast from RoboCop's chief technician, Dr. Marie Lazerus (Jill Hennessy). She disarms him of it and fires it in the air in front of the accompanying two OCP security guards, telling them to "Think it over".

The Calico M100 is among the weapons seen in the Police armory during the weapons raid by the resistance. The rifle also is seen pulled out by the Hold-up Man (Lee Arenberg), who foolishly tries to rob a diner frequented by the Detroit police.

DefTech 37mm launcher (with under-slung Cobray M11/9)
The multi-shot DefTech 37mm launcher is the launcher used with the Cobray when Paul McDaggett is in the SWAT van being chased by RoboCop in the pimp-mobile. The DefTech has the forward grip removed and the Cobray is fitted with a muzzle shroud and mounted sideways underneath. As in many movies, the DefTech launcher is depicted as a weapon which fires HE grenades; in real life, it can only fire less-than-lethal projectiles. This exact same weapon combination is also seen in the movie Cliffhanger.

A SplatterPunk takes up the DefTech launcher.
RoboCop's Gun Arm
In addition to his Auto-9, RoboCop is seen in this film being able to replace his lower left arm with a multiple weapons platform. His "gun arm" consists of a modified Calico M950A mounted on its side, a custom flamethrower (fabricated mostly from one of the 'leg-pistons' of the RoboCop suit), and a smart-bomb launcher.
RoboCop emerges from his police car with his gun arm at the ready.

OCP/Detroit Police Armory
The resistance is seen raiding an OCP/Detroit Police armory at the film's beginning. In real life, this scene was filmed at Gibbons Ltd, the armory which supplied most of the weapons used in filming.
The background section appears to have several Heckler & Koch G3s/HK91s
as well as another Muzzelite MZ14 Bullpup
. The closer section has numerous M16
-type rifles and Type 56
AKs, many of which have 'pig-sticker' folding bayonets. Seen are a mix of fixed-stock Type 56s, underfolder-stocked Type 56-1s, and one side-folder Type 56-2. A couple also appear to have bakelite magazines.
Coontz (Stephen Root
) begins pulling weapons off the rack. On the cart is a Calico M100
and an H&K HK93 with, interestingly enough, a desert-camo paint scheme (in real life, H&K released a limited number of HK93s to the U.S. civilian market with the same desert camouflage pattern seen on its GR-series rifles). On the rack are several other H&K rifles and, also interesting, what appear to be several Sturmgewehr 44s
The rebels discover the prototype flight-pack for RoboCop in the armory. Two MP40
SMGs are seen hanging in the upper right. Rather diverse and interesting selection of weapons, isn't it?
: "Get that." Coontz
: "Why?" Bertha
: "It looks expensive."
Bertha (CCH Pounder
) and Coontz notice Robo's flight-pack. Here we have a closer shot of the M16 variant and Norinco AKs on the rack - Three in background are fixed stock Type 56s, while the two closer rifles (as well as the one on the cart) are underfolder Type 56-1s. The M16 seen appears to have M16A2
handguards, an A2-style upper receiver and 'slab side' SP1 lower receiver.
The SplatterPunks are provided with several weapons to battle with the Resistance.
are seen (the one closest to frame appears to be a Daisy Airsoft replica), as well as a Micro Uzi
, two Armsel Strikers
and a MAC-10
(underneath the MP5K next to the Strikers).
The Enforcement Droid series 209, or simply, ED-209, makes a reappearance in this film, guarding the inside main entrance to the OCP/Detroit Police armory. The ED-209 is seen being reprogrammed to fire its missile launcher at the locked main door of the armory, and then reprogrammed to fire its cannons at the Security Concepts vehicles that arrive.
