10 Guns You Should Build In Mercenary Kings

Players can craft a weapon for every occasion in Mercenary Kings. The stats on your gun – along with your bionic mods –  help you collect materials, speed through levels, and deal mountains of damage. The flexibility is part of what makes the game so much fun. However, players who just picked the game up on PC or PS4 (it's currently free for PS Plus members) might be a little overwhelmed by the options. To provide some guidance, the developers at Tribute Games shared some of their recommendations for 10 different weapons available at various phases of your battle against the evil forces of CLAW.

#1 – Basic Gathering Gear

Rank Available: Private 
Description: Use this set to easily kill enemies and animals from afar and always obtain basic materials. Use the right stick to move the camera and kill enemies without being spotted. Rare materials will never drop with this setup.
How To Make It:

#3 – Machine Gun Glider

Rank Available: Sergeant
Description: Allows you to move fast and to glide for a long distance over enemies and obstacles by shooting down while in midair. The poison knife allows you to quickly destroy armored enemies on the way. However, this setup leaves you very vulnerable to enemy attacks because of the “defense down” side effect.
