Shadow Warrior 2 weapons are looking awesome
Flying Wild Hog's latest title Shadow Warrior 2 is less than a month away from release. One of the games main features is its weapons. In total, the game is to have over 70 weapons, including blades and explosive firearms.
There is yet to be an official list of the weapons released meaning we only have trailers and gameplay videos to work with. Let's take a look at what is on offer, shall we?
There are three worlds, each with its own design of weapon
Judging from videos and screenshots we can establish that the player will be interacting with three different worlds. The real world, Zilla's cyber world, and the demonic world. Each of the worlds will have their own weapons available to the player.
In Devolver Digital's Cyberwang video for example, we see two different forms of Uzi. While in the real world, we see Lo Wang using dual Uzi. Later in the video, he enters Zilla's cyber world and finds a cyber Uzi. In the picture above, we can see Wang wielding a demonic weapon that is created both out of metal and an organism.
This idea alone is awesome, as it gives a nice variety of weapons from three different worlds. Judging from what can be seen in the videos and screenshots, each world's weapons are very different in design from the others.
What weapons are up for grabs?
As to what weapons are definitely available in the game, depends on where you look. Different videos and screenshots, show off varying weapons. The steam store page trailers and screenshots show the following weapons:
- Dual Uzi
- Sawn-off Shotgun
- Pump action Shotgun
- Ninja Claws
- Laser Rifle
- Multi-bladed knife
- Demonic grenade launcher
- Razorback Katana (Pre-order Bonus)
- Assault Rifle
- Dual Blades
Those are just the weapons you can see from the store page. Devolver Digital's Cyberwang video and another official video show even further weapons. The two video contain the following weapons not listed above:
- Dual Revolvers
- Cyber Sword
- Cyber Blades
- Cyber Heavy Machine Gun
- Cyber Uzi
- Demonic Heavy Machine Gun
Between the screenshots and videos, we are getting a look at a good chunk of the weapons that will be available in the game. That, however, is but 21 out of over 70 weapons that the game will contain. It is going to be interesting to see what other weapons Flying Wild Hog have in store for us.
An arsenal of awesome weapons
The weapons shown so far are all nicely designed. They look visually awesome, but also more importantly, they are all extremely lethal and loud. Some of the designs are quite ludicrous but that is all part of the fun. The over the top nature of the weapons come hand in hand with the equally ridiculous nature of the gameplay.
What we actually have is a large, varied and creative arsenal of weapons for nothing but utter carnage. They are created for nothing more than having good old fashioned FPS fun. Judging from the screenshots and videos, they are going to do exactly as intended.
