Visible crew/equipment: When The Terminator exits the bar, a bartender then points a 30-30 at him. The Terminator then takes the 30-30 off him and takes a pair of sunglasses out of his shirt pocket. A reflector screen is visible in the reflection of the glasses when he puts them on.

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Pescendaro, the Terminator shoots the T-1000's head and the T-1000's head splits apart.

However, when the shot cuts back to the T-1000, Doctor Silberman isn't there any more. (01:00:00)

Revealing mistake: When the cop by the vending machine is about to be killed by the T-1000, the back shot of him reveals he's been replaced by an obvious doll: His perfectly trimmed hair along the nape is now long and messy, and a long stitch appears along his sideburn and down to the neck.

Revealing mistake: After the Terminator has jumped on to the truck and shot the T-1000 full of bullets he pulls the wheel to the right so that the tanker truck skids and falls but if you look closely you can see that the stunt double for the T-101 merely fakes he's pulling the wheel, and then holds onto the cab and you can see the stuntman for the T-1000 inside the cab turning the wheel before it flicks to the wider shot.
