The grenade launcher is an essential weapon for boss fights. It can be loaded with explosive rounds or flashbangs, ideal for crowd-control.
Location: Waterwheel Weapon when returning to the East Village.
This powerful Handgun is only available as part of the Trauma Pack Add-On. Here's how to redeem it.
The Dragoon is probably the best weapon in the game. A powerful assault rifle with a burst fire attachment.
Location: Complete the campaign, unlock in the Extra Content menu before loading into a game and buy at Merchant
This magnum will set you back a lot of Lei, but is worth it for its stopping power.
Location: Complete the Campaign and then buy at Merchant.
This long-ranged sniper rifle is great for taking out flying enemies. You'll pick it up in the attic room of Castle Dimitrescu, after solving the 5 Bells Atelier puzzle.
Location: Attic Room (Castle Dimitrescu)
M1897 Pump-Action Shotgun
This shotgun is picked up near the start of the game in the East Village when you need to survive the Lycan attack. You can't miss it!
This semi-automatic handgun lets you fire off more rounds more quickly.
Location: Safe in Workshop
The TAC Shotgun has a higher capacity than the pump-action, and fires faster.
Location: Garden area, shown on map.
The Wolfsbane Magnum is one of the best weapons in the game, and a must-have for later bosses.
Location: You'll find it by unlocking Moreau's Hidden Treasure, which is marked on your map.
This is the handgun you will start with after being given it by a villager. This is your bread and butter. Well worth upgrading.
You'll pick up the knife at the start of the game
The V61 is unlocked partway through the game. The Merchant will tell you he has new guns in stock.
Similarly to the V61, this weapon will be offered by the Merchant later on in the game. It's a fully automatic shotgun that's extremely powerful.
WCX Assault Rifle
The WCX can be purchased from the Extra Content Menu in the Bonus section of the main menu. You'll need to beat the game first, and spend CP to unlock it in the store.
Chris' Karambit Knife unlocks once you've beaten the campaign. You'll need to unlock it in the Extra Content Bonus menu and then purchase it from the Merchant.
Chris' USM-A1 unlocks once you've beaten the campaign. You'll need to unlock it in the Extra Content Bonus menu and then purchase it from the Merchant. It's a powerful semi-auto handgun.
The Handcannon PZ can be purchased using CP in the Extra Content Menu in the Bonus menu after completing the campaign on Hardcore difficulty. You'll then need to purchase it at the Merchant.
The Rocket Pistol can be purchased using CP in the Extra Content Menu in the Bonus menu after completing the campaign on Village of Shadows difficulty. You'll then need to purchase it at the Merchant.
The LZ Answerer is a laser sword that can be unlocked by getting SS rank in all areas of Mercenaries mode.
That's all of the weapons we've found in Resident Evil Village. We'll add more info if we unlock any more of them. Until then be sure to check out our guide on opening Mechanical Doors.
