October 3, 2023: As attention turns to the XDefiant launch, we've updated our guide showcasing the full gun list available to use.

The XDefiant gun list contains a wealth of weaponry capable of dealing huge amounts of damage throughout a match. XDefiant, Ubisoft's free-to-play arena shooter is moving towards release and many are wondering if it has the ability to contend with Call of Duty.

Ranging from assault rifles to pistols, XDefiant comes with a range of weapon categories to suit all manner of play styles and if you're familiar with shooter games, there's a chance you'll recognise some names of weapons that featured in the open beta.

But, before we take a closer look at the XDefiant gun list, take a look at our guide showcasing the best guns to use.

XDefiant weapon categories

In total, there are seven XDefiant weapon categories to choose from. Whether you prefer running and gunning or picking off targets from afar, there's something for everyone. Here's a full XDefiant weapon category list:

  • Assault rifles
  • SMGs
  • Shotguns
  • LMGs
  • Marksman rifles
  • Sniper rifles
  • Pistols

There's a chance Ubisoft adds new weapon categories as part of the game's planned seasonal updates once the full build launches. As soon as we hear more about new weapon categories, we'll update the guide with the latest information.
