Weapon FAQ

Okie doke so this is my 1st FAQ and I know if you have a game manual (if you bought the game) you can find all this in there but some people but the game used and the former owner loses the manual. SO, with that said, enjoy:

-Snub Pistol

-Excellent back-up weapon

-Zoom capable

 The standard pistol of COG soldiers, this
little gun doesn't pack much of a punch, but has a high
fire rate. It has a fair amount of ammo, but shouldn't
be used against more then one enemy. Good for multiplayer
gun and run. (**)

-Lancer Assault Rifle

-Fully Automatic

-Midrange Combat

-Deadliest Melee

The infamous standard COG weapon. The Lancer has a
high rate of fire, excellent damage, and sports a large
clip. It can hold up to 700 shots, and is good for
both small and large numbers of locust scum. Of course,
I have to mention a FREAKIN' CHAINSAW BAYONET!!! Yes, this awesome melee
attack is an instant kill, but shouldn't be used
for groups of enemies or for a head on rush. (****)

-Hammerburst Assault Rifle

-Accurate

-Powerful

-Zoom Capable

This is the standard Locust weapon,
and can be found in every level of the game. The gun fires in short bursts and packs a punch (hence the name). It will always have a steady stream of
ammo, but might not be good for large waves of foes,
due to the need for a more precise shot. (***)

-Boltak Pistol

-Powerful

-Zoom Capable

This COG weapon is the best sidearm
in the game. Its pretty much a magnum GOW-style and deals
heavy damage. Two shots can kill most Locusts.
Unfortunatley, it has a small clip, and can't hold
much ammunition (6 shot clip, 30 shots total).
Also has a long reload rate. (***)

-Gorgon Pistol

-Powerful

-Double Clip

-Zoom Capable

Deadly close and mid-range weapon!                                                                                                                       Yet is offset because of small clip and long reloading times. (**)

-Longshot Sniper Rifle

-Best Zoom Capability

-Deadly at all ranges

 The games only sniper rifle. This devastating
gun can cut through Locusts, and can take out the
biggest enemies in 1 or 2 headshots. The downside is
its long reload time, and it requires supreme
accuracy. Good for multiplayer Execution and
Assassination, due to the fact one shot can bring
an opponent to their knees. (***)

-Boomshot

-Powerful

-Lightweight

 This huge gun is dropped by the devastating                                                                                              Boomers. It has low ammo, a small blast radius,
and a slow rate of fire, but deals heavy damage if
used right. Takes out most enemies with one shot.                                                                                                 This weapon shouldn't picked up, unless
you think you can make the best of it. (**)

-Gnasher Shotgun 

-Deadly Close-range

-Good Clip Size

The COG shotgun could be one of the best weapons
in the game. It has incredible power, great ammo
supply, and a fair range. At close range, it decimates the
enemy, much like the chainsaw. Execellent choice
for multiplayer combat. (****)

-Hammer of Dawn

-Hand-Held Targeting

This gun rains hell down on your enemies.
This weapon calls down lasers from sattelites in
the atmosphere. Sadly, it's not good for moving
targets, and you need to be outside, with the sattelite
above you for it to work. Poor choice for
multiplayer. (**)

-Torque Bow

-Advanced Targeting

-Effective Melee

A powerful Locust weapon. This crossbow
like gun fires explosive arrows. You don't get it
till later in the game, but it's worth the wait.
It takes a little bit of time to warm up, but it
kills instantly. It has extendable blades for melee
attacks. Good for multiplayer due to large blast
radius. (***)

-Scorcher Flamethrower

-Effective around Covering Enemies

The games flamethrower. Very effective when using                                                                                            against enemies with the boomshield or around cover.                                                                                     Also good with large numbers of enemies.                                                                                                         Flaws are that some of the enemies that are still on fire                                                                                     can damage you if they aren't yet elimenated.
