The film focuses on a man who falsely claims to be a Jigsaw survivor, becoming a local celebrity. However, he soon finds himself part of a real Jigsaw game where he must ultimately save his wife and friends who helped him become famous. At the same time, Jill Tuck finds protection from officer Gibson, who, together with his colleagues, begins the hunt for Hoffman, who has completely departed from John's ideas and is playing his own cruel game. An eighth film, titled Jigsaw, was released in 2017.
The following weapons were used in the film Saw 3D:
Officer Matt Gibson (Chad Donella) carries and uses a Beretta 92FS as his primary weapon throughout the film. The gun is first seen in his holster when Jill Tuck (Betsy Russell) comes to seek help from him. He takes her to a safe house, where the gun is again clearly seen in his holster. Officer Rogers (Laurence Anthony) also has the Beretta 92FS in holster, but never uses it, and the holstered gun is seen only in a few scenes due to the long jacket. Gibson uses Beretta when he arrives with Rogers to Crossroads Manufactory, where Hoffman made the tape to Jill. After that, together with a SWAT team, he arrives at Clear Dawn Psychiatric Hospital, where he also holds a pistol. Realizing that Hoffman is hiding somewhere in a junkyard, he goes there and takes the gun from the holster, chambering it. Together with two police officers, he finds Hoffman's secret hideout, where he points his gun at the man in the cloak. After making sure that no one is there, he holsters the pistol. Another officer killed by Hoffman at the police station also has a pistol in a holster.
For the first time, a Glock 17 appears briefly in the holster of police officers in the opening scene of the film. Having found four dead bodies in Pete's Auto Body junkyard, the police, led by Officer Rogers (Laurence Anthony), begin to search for evidence. At this moment, an explosion occurs in a nearby car and two officers with pistols in holsters approach to check it. In a flashback, patrol officer Matt Gibson (Chad Donella) arrives at the call with the Glock 17 in his hands. However, it turns out to be a trap of a homeless drug addict (Darren McGuire). After a short fight man takes away the gun to kill police officer. At this point, Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) intervenes with his own Glock and shoots several times at the homeless man, who has already surrendered and drop the gun. The Glock 17s are also seen in the holsters of the SWAT officers, who arrived at Clear Dawn Psychiatric Hospital, and two police officers escorting Gisbon to Hoffman's hideout. One of them grabs a gun before the turret fires at him. During the massacre at the police station, Hoffman pulls a pistol from the holster of a murdered officer and shoots Rogers, then puts it on the table.
Smith & Wesson 5946
A Smith & Wesson 5946, is briefly seen in a safe in Hoffman's hideout at the beginning of the film. After the second massacre at the police station, Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) is on the run and putts the gun in his bag of cash before escaping. When he wakes up in the famous bathroom from the first and second films, what appears to be his Smith & Wesson 5946 is seen on the floor, but is never seen close enough for a positive identification.
Smith & Wesson Model 686
In archive footage from the Saw, John Kramer's (Tobin Bell) fake corpse with a Smith & Wesson Model 686 in his left hand is briefly seen in the final scene, when Hoffman wakes up in the famous bathroom from the first movie.
Remington 870 Police Magnum
When Gibson finds the place, where Hoffman made the tape to Jill, Officer Rogers (Laurence Anthony) takes a Remington 870 Police Magnum shotgun and goes there with Matt. Upon arrival, he knocks down the door and holds his shotgun at the ready. One of the police officers takes the shotgun out of the police car and Gibson (Chad Donella) asks him for a Remington 870 to knocks out the mirror, getting into Hoffman's hideout. There, the officer holds the gun until his death.
Mossberg 500 Persuader
One of the police officers, who accompanies Det. Gibson into Hoffman's hideout at Pete's Auto Body junkyard, holds a Mossberg 500. Unlike his colleague with Remington shotgun, this officer's Mossberg appears very briefly in the frame.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Four SWAT officers (including Danny Lima) armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3s with a railed handguards with accessories during the assault on Clear Dawn Psychiatric Hospital, where Bobby Dagen's (Sean Patrick Flanery) trial takes place. They burst into the building and immediately go up to the second floor, after which they look for a detour, since the floor has collapsed in one room. Together with their commander (Simon Northwood), they find the bodies of all the victims of the game until they themselves fall into a trap and die from cyanide fumes.
Heckler & Koch UMP45
A Heckler & Koch UMP45 is used by Lead SWAT Officer (Simon Northwood), who, together with other SWAT officers, storm Clear Dawn Psychiatric Hospital, where Bobby Dagen's (Sean Patrick Flanery) trial takes place.
PKT Machine Gun
When Officer Gibson (Chad Donella) and two other police officers find Hoffman's hideout at Pete's Auto Body junkyard, a sentry gun trap that appears to be a rigged up variant of a PKT machine gun with an EOTech sight on a rotating tripod is activated.
