We’ve already listed all the best new weapons of 2019, but this is something different — you can’t just find the following weapons. You’ll need to work to make these weapons a reality. You’ll to solve puzzles, unlock Easter eggs, beat missions, or just explore thoroughly — and these hidden guns are totally worth finding. Here are our 10 favorites of 2019.
The Homing Briefcase [Hitman 2]
The incredible Homing Briefcase is an all-new 2019 addition to Hitman 2 — jumping from unofficial hilarious feature to a true weapon of assassination. Unlockable in the Haven Island mission, the Homing Briefcase is a ridiculous weapon you can throw that slowly tracks down targets. It spins rapidly, homing in like a briefcase-sized batarang until knocking out your target. It literally can’t miss, and it’s one of the weirdest weapons in the entire game.
The Fish-On-A-Stick [Gears 5]
Found in the very first level, the ludicrous Fish-On-A-Stick weapon is an early Easter egg in Gears 5, continuing a long tradition of hilariously weird weapons. The Fish-On-A-Stick doesn’t really do anything special — it’s just a weird version of the Breaker Mace.
Learn how to get the Fish-On-A-Stick with our full guide here! There are also Relic Weapons you can unlock that give special functionality to old guns — some crummy guns become unstoppable in their Relic variants. We’ve got a lengthy guide explaining where to find all of those too.
