You won't miss a single one of them, unless you really want to rush your way to the end, which I really don't want you to do. I'll tell you these things about the different weapons: Name: obviously, how the weapon is named Zoom: Tells you what happens when you press the zoom button. Location: Where can you find this weapon. Power: How powerful is the weapon per shot. 1-10 stars, higher = better Rate of fire/ROF: How quickly does this weapon fire. 1-10 stars, higher = better Reload: How long does it take to reload. 1-10 stars, higher is better Range: Spread, recoil, and range. Max ammo: How much can you carry with you. Personal Experience: I tell you what I think about this weapon Multiplayer: Is this available in multiplayer. [CLASS] -------| Classes| -------| To make this guide easier to use, I split the weapons up into different classes. Look up where you can find your weapon in the Table of Contents. [ASSAU] ---------- Assault Rifles ---------- ------------------- ~M82 Assault Rifle ------------------- Zoom: Green-dot scope Location: At the start of nearly every mission, fallen ISA soldiers. Personal Experience: A very solid weapon, but only found at the beginning of most missions. Keep it with you untill you find a weapon that is significantly better. Power : *****...... Rate of Fire : *******.... Reload : ********... Range : ********... Max ammo : 280 Multiplayer : Yes (Default, Tactician, Medic) ------------------- ~StA52 Assault Rifle ------------------- Zoom: Iron-sight Location: Many Helghast troopers carry these, it shouldn't be a problem for you to find one. Personal Experience: Found very often, about as good as the M82, but doesn't have as much range. Power : ******..... Rate of Fire : ********... Reload : ********... Range : *******.... Max Ammo : 320 Multiplayer : Yes (Default, Tactician, Medic) [RIFLE] ---------- Rifles ---------- ------------------- ~StA14 Rifle ------------------- Zoom: Iron-sight Location: Only found in the first two missions. (correct me if I'm wrong) Personal Experience: One hit headshots. It's only found in the first two missions, so it's a rare find. Too bad it's hard to aim, but the ROF is good. Power : **********. Rate of Fire : *****...... Reload : *******.... Range : *******.... Max Ammo : 24 Multiplayer : Yes (Saboteur) ------------------- ~VC32 Sniper Rifle ------------------- Zoom: 2x / 5x zoom scope Location: Visari Square, on top of the small house at the square, Salamun Bridge, at the bridgehouse where you lower the bridge, Suljeva village, from the dead bodies of the snipers, Tharsis Refinery, just before entering the train, Visari Palace, found during the battle with Radec. Personal Experience: As powerful as the StA14 Rifle, but with an awesome scope! Press up on the d-pad while zooming for 5x zoom, perfect for making headshots. Although it isn't that common, you shouldn't keep it with you unless you really need to use it to progress. Power : **********. Rate of Fire : ***........ Reload : *******.... Range : *********** Max Ammo : 24 Multiplayer : Yes (Scout) [MACHI] ---------- Machineguns ---------- ------------------- ~StA3 LMG ------------------- Zoom: Small close-up Location: Suljeva village, from the Helghast with white headcover, and in every mission after this. Personal Experience: This weapon is amazing. Very powerful, large clip, but an insane amount of recoil and spread. Once you find one, there'll be ammo everywhere. Power : *******... Rate of Fire : ********.. Reload : *****..... Range : *......... Max Ammo : 288 Multiplayer : Yes (Default) ------------------- ~M224-1A LMG ------------------- Zoom: Iron-sight Location: Visari Square, and from then on, a very rare find. Personal Experience: Just not as good as the StA11, less power, a lower ROF, but it has an iron-sight which makes aiming much easier. Power : ******.... Rate of Fire : *****..... Reload : *****..... Range : *****..... Max Ammo : ??? Multiplayer : Yes (Default) ------------------- ~StA11 SMG ------------------- Zoom: Iron-sight Location: Found in early levels, from the elite soldiers. Personal Experience: A very reliable weapon with a very high Rate of Fire. Hold fire when close to an enemy and it emmits blood like a fountain. You can bring a huge amount of ammo with you, so don't hesitate to overkill. Power : ***....... Rate of Fire : ********** Reload : ******.... Range : *****..... Max Ammo : 384 Multiplayer : Yes (Default, Saboteur) [SHOTG] ---------- Shotgun ---------- ------------------- ~LS13 Shotgun ------------------- Zoom: Flashlight Location: Not too common, during and after Salamun District. Personal Experience: Heh. Shotgun. It's the only weapon with a flashlight, which makes it good for small and dark areas. It has a big spread, but if you land a headshot on an enemy that's less than 10 metres away from you, you'll win. He'll lose...his head.... Power : *********. Rate of Fire : ***....... Reload : *......... Range : ***....... Max Ammo : 24 Multiplayer : Yes (Default, Engineer) [SIDEA] ---------- Sidearms ---------- ------------------- ~M4 Revolver ------------------- Zoom: Iron-sight Location: If you start your mission with an M82, you will have this. Personal Experience: The good thing about Sidearms is that they have unlimited ammunition. So if you want to save up ammo (although I don't see why) you can use this for fun firefights. I suggest to keep to your main weapon if you play on Elite difficulty. Power : ********.. Rate of Fire : ****...... Reload : ********.. Range : ****...... Max Ammo : Unlimited Multiplayer : Yes (5x Sidearms Ribbon) Extra note: Joshua Quek mailed me saying he thinks the M4 is godly on multiplayer, and since I don't have it yet, I thought it put this here to just make sure you don't try to get it. ------------------- ~StA18 Pistol ------------------- Zoom: Iron-sight Location: Found very rarely on Helghast. Salamun Bridge grenadiers have them, same goes for the snipers in Suljeva Village. Personal Experience: The better handgun. It has a higher ROF than the M4, and a larger clip. It's rare though. Power : ********.. Rate of Fire : *****..... Reload : ********.. Range : ****...... Max Ammo : Unlimited Multiplayer : Yes (All) ------------------- ~M32 Knife ------------------- Zoom: It's a knife -.- Location: You always have it with you. Personal Experience: What to say about a knife...It's a quick killer. Power : *******... Rate of Fire : *****..... Reload : Range : *......... Max Ammo : You can't throw it, so you won't need more than 1. Multiplayer : No [SPECI] ---------- Special Weapons ---------- ------------------- ~VC1 Flamethrower ------------------- Zoom: None Location: Salamun District, and on flamethrowers later in the game. Personal Experience: Flamethrowers are always fun, the same goes for the VC1. It sprays a liquid fuel on fire, which sets anything it hits to fire. Fuel is rare, and it empties very quickly. Watch out you don't step into your own fire! Power : ********... Rate of Fire : Reload : ****....... Range : **......... Max Ammo : 200 Multiplayer : No ------------------- ~VC5 Electricity Gun ------------------- Zoom: None Location: Only during the Tharsis Refinery mission Personal Experience: This weapon...is the most amazing weapon I've ever used in a game. It's range is incredible, it has unlimited ammo, and it has an amazing feel. NEVER discard this weapon. Power : *********.. Rate of Fire : Reload : *****...... Range : ********... Max Ammo : Unlimited Multiplayer : No ------------------- ~VC21 Boltgun ------------------- Zoom: Iron-sight Location: Only during the Suljeva Village mission Personal Experience: Another amazing weapon. It makes instant kills, nails anyone you hit to a wall, and the projectile explodes after a while! Too bad you can't take it with you after this mission. Power : ********** Rate of Fire : ****...... Reload : *******... Range : ****...... Max Ammo : 20 Multiplayer : No ------------------- ~Shock/Electricity Grenade ------------------- Zoom: None Location: Visari Palace, rarely found on the ground Personal Experience: Cool, a grenade that electrocutes the enemy! Well, only if you are a good tosser, because it only electrocutes enemies if the grenade stays inside a 5 meter range for more than 2 seconds. Otherwise, it'll just stun the enemy. Power : *****..... Rate of Fire : Reload : Range : **........ Max Ammo : 3 Multiplayer : No [EXPLO] ---------- Explosives ---------- ------------------- ~VC9 Rocket Launcher ------------------- Zoom: Iron-sight Location: Everytime you need one. Personal Experience: This thing packs some serious power, but you can only carry 3 rockets with you. Ammo is rare, so make your shots count. Power : ********** Rate of Fire : Reload : ****...... Range : *****..... Max Ammo : 3 Multiplayer : Yes (Default, Assault) ------------------- ~M194 Frag Grenade ------------------- Zoom: None Location: Everywhere Personal Experience: Use it alot, these things always manage to stun, if not kill Helghast. They are very common, and can be thrown pretty far. Suprise Helghast with this and knife the survivors. Power : ********.. Rate of Fire : Reload : Range : ***....... Max Ammo : 3 Multiplayer : Yes (All) ------------------- ~M327 Grenade Launcher ------------------- Zoom: Close-up Location: Salamun Bridge, Visari Palace Personal Experience: Not so accurate, but if you shoot it behind enemy cover you can flush them out. If you manage to hit a Helghast with this, it instantly explodes, killing the enemy (unless on Elite difficulty). Power : ********.. Rate of Fire : *****..... Reload : ******.... Range : ****...... Max Ammo : 12 Multiplayer : Yes (Assault) ------------------- ~M80 Rocket Launcher ------------------- Zoom: Green Scope Location: Multiplayer only, it's available to the Assault Class. Personal Experience: Wooooh! A rocket launcher with a scope! Don't stand to close to a wall or the missile might hit the wall when being shot out of the tube. When launched, the rocket kinda sweeps sideways a bit as it isn't directly activated, it does so after a quarter of a second after launch. But when it goes, it really goes. Power : ********** Rate of Fire : Reload : ****...... Range : *****..... Max Ammo : 3 Multiplayer : Yes, exclusively. (Assault) [HEAVY] ---------- Heavy Weapons ---------- ------------------- ~ISA Tank ------------------- Zoom: Close-up Location: Corinth River, at the dam Personal Experience: Ah, too bad we can only use this machine once. It has 2 rocket pods that reload in 5 or 10 seconds, and an emplaced machinegun. Power : **********. Rate of Fire : *********** Reload : *.......... Range : **********. Max Ammo : Unlimited Multiplayer : No ------------------- ~Emplaced Machineguns ------------------- Zoom: Close-up Location: Everywhere, as long as there are many Helghast Personal Experience: Very good turret, with excellent stats. Power : ********.. Rate of Fire : ********** Reload : *******... Range : ******.... Max Ammo : Unlimited Multiplayer : Yes ------------------- ~Helghast AA Gun/ISA Quad Cannon ------------------- Zoom: Close-up Location: Salamun Bridge/Cruiser Personal Experience: The Salamun Bridge AA gun part is awesome, you get to kill a bunch of Helghast with a frikkin' Anti-Aircraft gun! The ISA Quad Cannon is used on Helghast jet fighters, and also had 24 rockets. Power : ********** Rate of Fire : *********. Reload : ********** Range : ********** Max Ammo : Unlimited/Unlimited & 24 Rockets Multiplayer : No ------------------- ~Exoskeleton ------------------- Zoom: Close-up Location: Maelstra Barrens Personal Experience: Kick. Ass. This thing is extremely cool. It can stomp over Helghast, destroy Higs with its machinegun, and blow up tanks with its two rocket pods. Too bad it has low health. Power : *********. Rate of Fire : ********** Reload : *......... Range : ********** Max Ammo : Unlimited Multiplayer : No [FINAL] ----------| Final Word| ----------| I had a fun time playing Killzone 2's Single Player, and I hope I'll manage to do the same with Elite difficulty (wish me luck!). Multiplayer will keep me playing for a long time, and I'll think back to the time, that time I played this wonderful game, made by my own country..... Also, thanks for reading, and make sure you kick some Helghast ass! [CONTA] -------| Contact| -------| Please, if you have a question, send me a message!
