Be the One: What Guns Are Used in Matrix?

In 1999, the Matrix was released to wide acclaim, with Keanu Reeves starring as Neo in a fight against the machines. With action scenes that were revolutionary to Western audiences, it immediately became a classic. Many of the guns used in the movie are often available from users for sale or at auction on GunBroker.com. Here are some of the guns from the movie to collect if you are a fan of Neo, Trinity, Agent Smith, or any of the characters.

Trinity and Neo: Berettas

Trinity, played by Carrie-Anne Moss, uses a pair of Beretta 84 FS Cheetahs throughout the film. These Beretta 9mm handguns were chosen as Moss’ hands are small, making the Beretta 92Fs look too big in her hands. During the lobby fight, Trinity only brings a Micro Uzi and her two Berettas. Later, Neo uses multiple pairs of 92FSs, dropping empty guns and pulling out loaded guns instead of reloading while saving Laurence Fishburne’s Morpheus.

The Agents: Desert Eagle

Over objections from the movie’s armorer, the writers/directors the Wachowski brothers insisted the agents, led by Hugo Weaving’s Agent Smith, wield IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIXs. They are chambered in 50 AE, which can be seen on the slide, especially during the subway duel. Interestingly, in one scene, Agent Smith shoots about a dozen rounds from the gun, despite it only holding seven rounds in the mag. Movie magic.

Trinity and Neo: Micro Uzi

During the lobby scene, both Trinity and Neo use Micro Uzis with bent trigger guards. Neo dual-wields the Micro Uzis to suppress soldiers in cover. It is easy to tell the Micro Uzi apart from the oft-used Uzi Pistol due to the bent trigger guards, meant to help with full-automatic fire. These can be quite difficult to find and purchase, but you can also get parts kits.

Apoc: Cobray M11/9

Julian Arahanga’s Apoc’s weapon of choice is the Cobray M11/9 converted to fully automatic. While it looks like an Ingram MAC 10 or MAC 11, the longer rear receiver betrays it as a Cobray. As Cobray took over manufacturing the guns with SWD Industries folded, they are often confused, and Cobrays are frequently used in movies in place of MAC 10s and MAC 11s.

Neo’s Lobby Scene: H&K MP5K

Neo is a fan of dual-wielding guns, and he uses a pair of Heckler & Koch MP5K submachine guns during the lobby scene. He also picks one up during the virtual armory scene, giving the signature HK slap to release the bolt. He first grabs these after setting off the metal detector at the beginning of the lobby scene.

Neo’s M16 Cartwheel

The soldiers that arrive as backup in the lobby scene mainly carry M16s with either three-prong flash hiders or A1-style birdcage flash hiders. Neo does a cartwheel while firing an M16 during the scene and then uses another soon after on the rooftop.

With a good eye and some patience, you should be able to find any of these guns used in Matrix or their relatives, such as a MAC 11 gun, which is frequently used in a variety of other films. The MAC 11 is a popular machine pistol with a compact design.
