If you’re going to survive against the unbelievable horrors of Resident Evil Village, you’ll need all the weapons you can get your (often brutalized) hands on. There are lots of weapons you can find, buy, or unlock in RE8 — and we’re going to list them all. The game makes sure you don’t miss the basic weapons like the pistol, shotgun and rifle. Other weapons like the Grenade Launcher, Magnum, SMGs and even Assault Rifles are completely optional. There are even some strange bonus weapons you can get post-game that give you some truly insane killing capabilities.
And you’ll need all of them. The village is packed with nightmarish monsters like insane peasants, flying bat hybrids, and much worse. You’ll need a steady hand — and plenty of upgrades — to make your guns good enough when facing down a horde of machete-wielding maniacs. You’ll be able to carry-over all your earned weapons in NG+, so you can take on remixed enemies with everything you’ve got on harder difficulty levels. There’s plenty of reasons to continue playing after the credits roll, and all the bonus weapons you can unlock is one of them. Here’s a full list of everything in the RE8 arsenal.
