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.
Jericho 941 R
Sergeant Reed (Robert DoQui) carries a Jericho 941 R as his sidearm. He uses it during the battle for Cadillac Heights after discarding his (presumably empty) Savage shotgun.
The Beretta 92FS is the standard sidearm of many of the Rehab officers. Also seen used by Security Concepts guards as they confront the Resistance fighters who try to rob the police armory.
Beretta 92FS Inox
The Beretta 92FS Inox is drawn by one of the Security Concepts guards in the beginning of the film.
A Wildey Magnum is the main sidearm of McDaggett's second-in-command Seitz (Judson Vaughn).
Fleck (Bradley Whitford), a Security Concepts executive, carries a Walther PPK in a shoulder holster while at work, saying he'd rather eat a bullet than jump out a window if things go bad.
Coontz (Stephen Root) is seen holding a Ruger KP90 on Bertha and the rest of the Resistance.
A Glock 19 is carried by Zack (Stanley Anderson) in the film.
Thunder 5 Revolver
A SplatterPunk is seen handling a Thunder 5 Revolver fitted with a laser sight.
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.
Muzzelite MZ14 Bullpup
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.
Two M16A1 rifles were seen on the wall of the Splatterpunks' place when RoboCop confronts them. The rifles are also seen used by Resistance fighters and Rehab officers.
Crosman Air 17
An M16-type rifle can also be seen used by the Rehab officers. These rifles are the Crosman Air 17.
Heckler & Koch HK91A2
A Detroit Police officer uses a Heckler & Koch HK91A2 during the defense of Cadillac Heights. Several of these rifles are also seen in the Detroit police armory near the beginning of the film.
A Norinco SKS-D fitted with a 30 round magazine is seen in the hands of a resistance fighter (David Dwyer, in an uncredited role). He attempts to use the bayonet to stab OTOMO, the Japanese android sent by OCP.
Charter Arms AR-7 Explorer
What appears to be a Charter Arms AR-7 Explorer is briefly seen in one scene wielded by a resistance fighter.
Resistance leader Bertha (CCH Pounder) is seen carrying a Franchi SPAS-12 shotgun as her main weapon. Detroit police officers can also be seen using them during the defense of Cadillac Heights.
Officer Donnelly (writer/director Shane Black in a cameo) uses a Mossberg 590 fitted with a heat shield and pistol grip in the opening shootout with the SplatterPunks. An identical Mossberg is the also used by resistance member Coontz (Stephen Root). Detroit Police officers defending Cadillac Heights can also be seen using them.
Resistance fighter Moreno (Daniel von Bargen) carries an Armsel Striker shotgun as his main weapon.
Savage Model 69RXL
Sgt. Reed (Robert DoQui) carries a Savage Model 69RXL with an extended magazine tube and barrel as he and other Detroit police officers defend Cadillac Heights at the end of the film.
A standard Remington 870 shotgun is the weapon wielded by Resistance leader Bertha (CCH Pounder) when she and the other members raid the police armory. Another 870 appears to be carried by one of the Detroit police officers during the battle for Cadillac Heights.
Heckler & Koch MP5A2
Heckler & Koch MP5A2s are used by several Rehab officers, notably during the shootout with RoboCop and Lewis (Nancy Allen) and during the raid on the Resistance hideout. SplatterPunks gang members are also seen wielding them in the final battle for Cadillac Heights. They are generally seen fitted with scopes and Surefire weaponlight forends.
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 MAC-11 fitted with a mock suppressor is used by one of the Rehab officers as they raid the Resistance hideout. 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".
A Cobray M11/9 fitted with a custom muzzle shroud is seen being used by McDaggett (John Castle) in conjunction with a DefTech 37mm launcher (see below).
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.
The Calico M950A is used by several Rehab officers, most notably by McDaggett's driver when he and McDaggett attempt to escape RoboCop. One is also seen wielded by a rebel fighter who confronts the android OTOMO.
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.
M203 Grenade Launcher
Several M203 grenade launchers are seen throughout the film. One is mounted on McDaggett's XM177E2, which he notably uses to disable RoboCop. Other XM177E2/M203 combo weapons are seen used by Rehab officers as well as one of the SplatterPunks during the battle for Cadillac Heights.
DefTech 1315 Gas Gun
The DefTech Gas Gun is wielded by a SplatterPunk who uses this weapon to fire the first shot on the attack of Cadillac Heights. Like the other DefTech launcher, this weapon is wrongly portrayed in the film has having the ability to fire HE grenades.
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.
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 SplatterPunks are provided with several weapons to battle with the Resistance.
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.
