Audio/visual unsynchronised 

Rate of fire of the minigun is much, much too low. It should sound like a giant zipper.

Character error 

Samaritan recites the BMW's license plate number as "5KSKU". Several close-up shots of the rear of the vehicle show that the license plate is actually "SKSKU" - the first and third characters are identical.

Factual errors 

When Root fires on the Samaritan operatives with the ".338" during their pursuit of Harold and her, she fires several shots in rapid succession. The weapon she uses is a Desert Tactical Arms Stealth Recon Scout, which is a bolt action/manual rifle, yet Root is never shown cycling the bolt.

Cars do not offer any protection even from low-powered handguns, let alone rifles and machine guns.

There are "sparking" bullets. Lead bullets generally do not spark when they hit things, especially not cars and definitely not the plastic bumpers of cars.

Revealing mistakes 

When Root and Shaw are being pursued by the black SUV the Samaritan operatives in it fire at them with a mini-gun mounted on the vehicle's roof. But despite the fact that the sound of the weapon firing never ceased during the chase the only visible impacts are on Root and Shaw's car despite there being heavy traffic.

When Root and Shaw are fighting the Samaritan operatives, their guns do not recoil. This can be clearly seen when a Samaritan agent brings a heavy gun into the field which has lots of bullet sagging from the gun. They should move towards to the gun's barrel.
