From IMFDB: “Heckler & Koch HK94A3 chopped and converted to resemble an MP5A3. Note the lack of a paddle magazine release, a lugged barrel, and a push pin set – 9x19mm.”
From IMFDB: “Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) carries a hard chromed Heckler & Koch P7M13 as his main weapon. … When he first brings out the weapon while threatening Joseph Takagi (James Shigeta), he is shown removing a matching suppressor from the barrel, thus indicating it’s not a P7M13SD because there is no threaded barrel to use a suppressor.”
John McClane (Bruce Willis) draws his Beretta 92F as he comes face-to-face with two of the terrorists.
From IMFDB: “When the building is surrounded by the police, Hans has his men set up a custom rocket launcher. The launcher is fitted onto a tripod mount that is seen being bolted down before firing. It’s fired twice to take out a SWAT APC.”
The terrorist named Alexander yells, “Ya, I see him!” as he locates the SWAT members with the rocket launcher before firing.
From IMFDB: “One of the more unusual weapons (for the time) in the film, the Steyr AUG assault rifle is used by Karl (Alexander Godunov) throughout the movie. It was likely chosen as the writers wanted to contrast the terrorists’ exotic European weapons with the more traditional American firearms used by the LAPD.”
From IMFDB: “Mistaking McClane for a terrorist shooting hostages, FBI Special Agent Johnson (Robert Davi) is seen taking aim with what appears to be a Steyr SSG 69 fitted with an AN/PVS-3 Starlight night-vision scope.”

When we think of Christmas, we think of Santa Claus, presents under the tree, and John McClane (Bruce Willis) running amok inside the Nakatomi Building as a dozen terrorists try to kill him before he foils their plans. Surely, nothing says “Christmas” more than the 1988 movie “Die Hard.” Yes, “Die Hard” is a Christmas movie. And “Die Hard” has some impressive guns throughout.
The Best Guns of Die Hard
Throughout the film, the terrorists, led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), showcase an impressive arsenal that scene-by-scene destroy different parts of Nakatomi Plaza.
