There's a solid variety of weapons on offer in Rage 2, but you're going to have to work to unlock them. Instead of being available from the start of the game, the various Rage 2 weapons have to be unlocked by visiting certain locations on the map. In our Rage 2 weapons guide, we'll be taking you through all you need to know about guns in Bethesda's shooter, including how to unlock weapons in Rage 2, and more.
Rage 2 Weapons List
There are eight total Rage 2 weapons on offer in the apocalyptic shooter. You start out with the Sidewinder Pistol and the Ranger Assault Rifle, but you're going to have to find the various weapon locations around the map to unlock the rest of them. Below, we've rounded up all the Rage 2 weapons into one table, detailing their name, description, and modified fire type.
|Sidewinder Revolver||Your standard wasteland pistol, dealing decent damage with low recoil||The Sidewinder doesn't have an alternate fire mode|
|Ranger Assault Rifle||The assault rifle of the wasteland Rangers, dealing solid damage with good range||The Ranger Assult Rifle doesn't have an alternate fire mode|
|Firestorm Revolver||A revolver that fires mines which can be manually detonated||Fires off mines that detonate immediately on contact|

Rage 2 Weapon Locations
Now in the table below, we'll be focusing on the Rage 2 weapon locations. We'll be pointing out the name of the Arks at which you can unlock weapons, as well as providing you with a map image of said Ark.
|Firestorm Revolver||Dank Catacomb Ark|
|Charged Pulse Cannon||Shrouded Vault Ark (need to complete Shrouded Sub Station Alpha and Bravo first)|
|Combat Shotgun||Ark underneath Gunbarrel (story-related)|
|Grav-Dart Launcher||Needle Falls Ark|

Unlocking any of the Rage 2 weapons listed above once you've tracked them down is simple. All you have to do is approach them within the actual Ark, and hold X/Square. You'll then be taken to a training area, where an AI will take you through the steps of using the weapon against enemies. Once this is done, you're free to get looting and killing with your new weapon.
So far, these are all the Rage 2 weapons that we've found around the wasteland. As soon as we've uncovered any additional gun locations, we'll make sure to add them to the table above.
