There’s more than just new Science Weapons on Gorgon, the new DLC area for Outer Worlds. The wrecked science compound is packed with named weapons with special one-of-a-kind effects. There are tons of different weapon types to find, including heavy machine guns, energy weapons, weird swords, and some of the best assault rifles in the game.
Gorgon is a challenging place even if you’re an endgame player, so getting the improved Mark 3 gear is essential. All named weapons are high level versions that deal increased damage, and named weapons always have a full compliment of weapon mods already attached. You can’t mod them, but you can upgrade them at any workbench with the tinker function.
There are seriously more than a dozen named weapons. If you have a favorite weapon, there’s a more powerful version in this DLC.

Named weapons are special guns and melee tools with a unique name — these weapons have built-in mods and other special features that make them superior to other weapons you’ll find in random chest or dropped by enemies.
