24. What two weapons does Nemesis possess in "Resident Evil: Apocalypse"?
From Quiz Resident Evil
Answer: Rocket launcher and machine gun
In the game, "Resident Evil 3: Nemesis", he only carries a rocket launcher. However, in the movie, he carries both a rocket launcher and a machine gun (which was originally used as a prop for a helicopter machine gun). It was Paul Anderson's idea to give the beast a machine gun, in addition to the rocket launcher, so it would give it a more threatening appeal. He also didn't want to just copy all of the ideas from the third game without making any significant differences.
When Nemesis gets his first full-body shot (literally) on the big screen, he is seen using both weapons, as he eliminates many of the S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Resque Squad) members that he was originally programed to kill. He was programmed to do this because the surviving S.T.A.R.S. members knew many of Umbrella secrets. This is briefly reviewed in the movie (only shown in a newspaper clipping, I believe), so I will not go into further detail on this matter. However, if you've played the first "Resident Evil" game, you should know what I'm talking about.
