Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life is the 2003 sequel to 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Angelina Jolie returns as Lara Croft, who this time travels to the ends of the earth in search of a mysterious object that may be capable of unleashing a deadly worldwide plague. The film was directed by Jan de Bont (Speed) and co-stars Gerard Butler, Ciarán Hinds, and Djimon Hounsou. A feature film reboot with Alicia Vikander in the role of Lara was released in March of 2018.
The following weapons were used in the film Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life:
Heckler & Koch USP Match
Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) once again carries as her main sidearms twin Heckler & Koch USP Match pistols in hip holsters. Unlike the original film, the entire pistol(s) has a custom platinum finish. In some behind the scene videos, Angelina Jolie indicated that her left-side USP is customized with the slide release latch on the opposite side.
Heckler & Koch P11
A Heckler & Koch P11 underwater gun is used by Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) during the temple scene. From looking at the shots, they either had more than one of these or they only had her fired it once, or never fired it and digitally made the rounds fly out because the close up of the front of it firing shows she was firing the first shot from the weapon despite the fact she fired 2 times before. Two P11's were utilized, however, neither were real weapons. A resin hero stunt was used when the holstered gun was removed and placed on the waters edge along with the speargun. When in and under the water, a SFX P11 was used which had cables and air lines running out of the base of the butt which connected to a SFX box of tricks which appeared to ignite the sealed barrel chambers which, on a real gun, would be sealed with resin which the caseless round or sabot would break through. When the prop was fired, air was blown through a single central hole in each of the chambers which combined with colored lights mounted on the air lines gave the convincing illusion of a sealed round discharging (sorry R.H.). Both the P11 and Lara's speargun had an identical grip and trigger guard assembly which did not appear on the real P11.
Heckler & Koch USP Compact
In addition to his SIG, Reiss's right-hand man Sean (Til Schweiger) pulls a Heckler & Koch USP Compact to dual-wield during the lab shootout. Xien (Terence Yin) is seen with a two-tone H&K USP Compact during the Shanghai shootout.
Terry Sheridan (Gerard Butler) pulls a Browning BDA in the secret lab.
The Glock 17 is used by various characters throughout the film.
Jericho 941 F
A two-tone Jericho 941 F is the primary handgun carried by Jonathan Reiss (Ciarán Hinds).
NAA Mini Revolver
During her target practice, Lara while riding horseback also uses an NAA Mini Revolver that she keeps in a spring-loaded wrist mechanism.
Reiss's right-hand man Sean (Til Schweiger) carries a SIG-Sauer P226 as his primary sidearm.
Chen Lo (Simon Yam) pulls a Taurus PT99 on Lara while in the cave.
What appears to be a Steyr MPi81 is used by one of the Xien's men.
Heckler & Koch UMP9
While in Africa, some of Reiss's men are armed with the Heckler & Koch UMP9 when they capture Lara and her friend Kosa (Djimon Hounsou).
When Lara travels to a prison in Kazakhstan to free Terry, guards are seen armed with the AKS-47.
A few of Xien's men are armed with the AKS-74U during the shootout in China.
Blaser R93 Sniper Rifle
When Lara arrives in China, she enters a hut that houses some of her weapons. Among the weapons seen is the Blaser R93 Sniper Rifle.
A Galil MAR is seen in the hands of Chinese thugs.
Heckler & Koch G36C
The Heckler & Koch G36C is used by Terry Sheridan (Gerard Butler) as well as Reiss's men. Sheridan's G36C is fitted with a scope above the standard G36 carry handle as well as a tactical light and mags clamped together.
Heckler & Koch G36K
The Heckler & Koch G36K is seen in the hands of Reiss's men.
Heckler & Koch HK33

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mark III*
Lara picks up a Lee-Enfield No.1 Mark III* in some Chinese ruins to use and hold Chen Lo (Simon Yam) at gunpoint. When the rifle clicks empty, she performs some "silent drill" exercises with it to defend herself against Chen Lo.
The SAR-80 rifle is seen briefly in the hands of Chinese thugs and their leader Xien (Terence Yin).
Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine
During a training exercise on her manor grounds, Lara uses a Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine (made by Rossi) with a large D lever loop to shoot targets while riding side saddle.
Among the weapons seen in Lara's weapons cache in China is the IMI Negev machine gun.
Angelina Jolie talks about the various weapons she used in the film in a DVD behind the scenes featurette.
