= Average
= Good
= Excellent
= Beyond Excellent

BLACKTAIL
A 9mm handgun with superior handling, the Blacktail is a decent weapon that serves its purpose until you graduate to something more powerful.


BROKEN BUTTERFLY
A very powerful .45 magnum revolverthis will make anyone's day. Only drawback is magnum ammo is in short supply, and re-loading takes some time.


TMP
A fully automatic machine-pistol that fires custom 9mm's. If you're surrounded by enemies equip this baby and clear a path to safety! An optional stock can be attached that absorbs and spreads out 80 percent of the recoil forces for increased shooting stability and comfort.


P.R.L. 412
The P.R.L. (Plagas Removal Laser) eradicates parasites from a hosts body. Shots can be charged in order to cover a wide range.


INFINITE LAUNCHER
The ultimate rocket launcherfire away! This item can be purchased from the Merchant after you finish the game once, and then start a new game using the saved data.


STRIKER
Equipped with the advantages of wide-shot, it enables faster firing than the standard shotgun; however, re-loading can be a time-consuming process.



THE MERCHANT
Where do you find these fine weapons? From the Merchant! Not only does he sell weapons and items, but he can also upgrade them...for a price. You can almost always spot a Merchant--just look for the blue flame pillars he usually stands near. One caveat--don't shoot the Merchant; if you do, he'll be gone from the location where he was killed for good.
