Guns are the main weapons used in Dead Trigger. They consist of Rifles, Pistols, Submachine Guns, Light Machine Guns, and Shotguns. There are also Melee weapons in the game. They all have varying damage, recoil, spread, magazine sizes, and effective ranges.
Guns like the Walther P99, Striker, KSG and Colt M4 have an optical attachment instead (red dot sight and the holographic sight). Guns like the Winchester and the Scorpion have simple iron sights (Patridge sights).
"A classic that has withered the test of time. Load 'er up on Monday and shoot the whole week through! For those who prefer to kill with vintage style. This rugged old lady is the only mistress you'll ever need..."
"The Enfield 303 is a throwback rifle, originally designed for piercing armor, elephant skulls, and concrete-block walls. It works pretty well on zombies, too."
"The REMINGTON 870 is a shotgun. Nothing fancy. Nothing computerized. Nothing left standing. Better and stronger version of this weapon is Remington Tactics."
"The Lupara is a no-nonsense firearm. Tune-ups improve power and accuracy. Good for skirmishes."
"The KSG is a second-gen shotgun. Dual tube magazines and minimal kick ensure tons of fun, perfect for groups, mobs, and hordes. Feeling spunky? Unload both barrels into a single zombie and count the pieces. If you can count that high."
"The STRIKER is a Singapore-style shotgun. What does that mean? Not sure, but were guessing it has something to do with the all-rubber design, the ability to field-strip in a flash, and the light weight. Ideal for blowing off heads. Just sayin."
"Weapons can also be tuned. For instance, this is a better and stronger version of the 870."
"The BREN is an infantry machine-gun. If you shoot a single 7.62 mm round into a zombie, a 20-ounce sirloin comes out the other side. The Bren serves up 100 sirloins per minute..."
"A WWI era machine gun, straight from the blood-soaked mud of the trenches. What else could you posibly want? Dont ask for whom the bells toll, get hold of one of these and start ringing some zombie bells yourself!"
"The MINIGUN: When you absolutely, positively, must kill every single sonofabitch in sight."
"When killing zombies with a chainsaw, you are bound to run out of gas. But hey, who gives a rats ass about that? If zombies have eaten your entire family, this is the only way to get revenge. Vrooom, vrooom, vrooom!"
"This little baby features a 30 kW outboard motor rigged with turbine blades that have been grinded to razor sharp perfection. Is it a lawnmower? Is it a blender? A wood chipper? You decide! Either way, its about to get real messy up in here..."
"This weapon kills enemies with medieval brutality even in the third millenium!"
"Who's a survivor's best friend in a world full of zombies? A dog? A woman? A book? Nope, not even close... A grenade launcher, with a buddy like this, life is a non-stop party( if you like partying in the slaughterhouse that is)"
The damage listed for every weapon is relative only to other weapons of the same type. For instance, at maximum level, the Enfield 303 rifle is listed to do 650 damage, while at maximum level the Uzi submachine gun is listed for 800. Yet, despite numerical differences, the Enfield 303 is capable of doing one shot kills, whereas the Uzi isn't.
Guns have very minimal recoil, however the bullets will not travel to where the bullets should hit due to spread; an unspecified statistic. This is easier to see with an automatic gun with an optical attachment equipped.
The only melee 'weapon' in the game, other than the Chainsaw T-800 and the Brain-Mill, is using the Hero's hands; although, it only happens when a zombie comes from behind and tries to bite the player. The player must do a tap pattern in time to break the the zombie's neck. Failure to do so will result in a successful zombie bite and consequently lost health.
