The XDefiant gun list contains a wealth of weaponry capable of taking down your opponents. From shotguns to snipers and SMGs, you're certainly not short on variety. However, not every weapon is unlocked right away and it works slightly differently than you might have expected. So, here's how to unlock every gun in XDefiant.

But, before we take a closer look at the XDefiant gun list, take a look at our guide showcasing the best XDefiant guns to use and the best XDefiant loadouts to use them in right now.

XDefiant Weapon Types

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

Outside of simply adding new weapons to the existing gun types, there's a chance Ubisoft will add new weapon categories as part of the game's planned seasonal updates. We'll keep this guide updated if that happens. Check out the XDefiant roadmap for more information on the seasonal structure.

XDefiant Season 1 Guns

Season 1 of XDefiant adds the following guns:

  • LVOA-C assault rifle
  • Sawed-Off Shotgun
  • L115 sniper

While the Sawed-Off will likely struggle to keep up with the pack, the LVOA-C and the L115 could very well be meta contenders in XDefiant Season 1. They will, however, have stiff competition from the ACR and TAC-50 respectively, so either these Season 1 weapons power-creep the existing arsenal or find their own niche.

There you have it, that's all there is to know about the XDefiant gun list and how to get each one. Check out the XDefiant meta and start grinding to unlock all the best weapons first.
