Official human arsenal preview

Official screenshot, screen with different weapons and ammos

Your soldiers need to be equiped with weapons to attack enemies. This can be done in the Equipment screen in the strategic game.

A weapon's damage type greatly affect its effectiveness against different enemies. Getting the right weapons will make tactical mission a lot easier.

Many weapons can be composed with add-ons and select from different ammo types to enhance their functions.

Weapons are either one-handed or two-handed. Wielding two one-handed weapons will not reduce their stats.

Initial[]

When the game starts, the people will turn up some limited weapons and add-ons.

Most of these weapons and ammo cannot be produced, so it is important to migrate to sustainable arms.

Firearms[]

Firearms are well rounded versatile weapons for dishing out Projectile damage.
