Weapons are the player's primary means of hurting enemies and defending themselves. They vary wildly in behavior, damage, fire rate, range, accuracy, and ammo count, and some weapons have additional effects such as Fire and Radiation.

Main Mechanics

Each character has a default weapon, which cannot be destroyed and has infinite ammo.

Characters can obtain additional weapons from Weapon Chests or the Weapon Shop which take up their secondary slot. Secondary weapons costs Ammo but are generally more powerful than characters' default weapons. Enemies can only drop Ammo when killed by secondary weapons, and weapon ammo is only replenished if that weapon is equipped when the ammo is picked up. Luis has an additional third weapon slot, which functions similarly to the secondary slot.

Superglue replaces the character's default weapon with their secondary, causing it to have unlimited ammo. Holster gives characters a third weapon slot similar to Luis.

Weapons fall into 4 main categories: Guns, Melee, Throwables and Staffs. Most characters can find and use Guns, Melee and Throwables, with some exceptions:

  • Cordelia only finds Staffs, which are exclusive to her.
    • Other characters besides Cordelia can randomly find and use Staffs if they have the Sorcery for Dummies item.
  • Digby can only use Melee and Throwables and will destroy Guns on pickup.
  • Fuji can only use her Boxing Gloves or other Fist weapons and will destroy any other weapon on pickup.


The player can destroy weapons in their second or third slots by holding the Shift key while they are equipped. This provides a slightly random reward of Money based on how much Ammo the weapon has relative to its maximum.

Trade-In Receipt increases the reward for scrapping weapons, and Blacksmith's Anvil provides another weapon when one is scrapped that can't be destroyed.
