Feeling nostalgic for the better days? The days that you always reminisce about, saying that life back then was just so much easier. The type of feeling that can only be achieved for those going to their Attic and digging out their GameBoy Advance, or finding that loose PS2 game on the dust-covered floor. There is so much feeling behind an old video game that you grew up playing on. Regardless of the bad times raging at your monitor, or throwing the controller having it withstand an impact that no PS5 controller could now, the nostalgic feeling trumps all and has a special place in our hearts. For those who grew up on 90s shooters, like the classic DOOM, Warhammer 40k returns to fill your hearts of that nostalgic feeling but with something new. Because nothing feels better than pummelling the heads of creatures that deserve it. This is all Weapons in Warhammer 40k: Boltgun.

Weapons List for Warhammer 40k: Boltgun

Being a sequel to the 2011 Space Marine, Boltgun is set amongst the stars, in an intergalactic battle against all life outside of Earth that will do anything to get a taste of your blood. With Warhammer known for having a heavy mix of both Melee, Short-Ranged and Long-Ranged Weapon, Boltgun brings a more standard shooter approach with the current focus being on the bigger the gun, the better. Whilst Melee Weapons will likely come into play inside Boltgun, those taking on the Space Marine sequel will find a total of 9 Weapons available with Enhancements to improve the Weapon’s power and impact in battle. Updates could add Melee Weapons as seen in other Warhammer games such as Darktide, but in the case of Boltgun, you will often be fighting close-range with weapons that have a large radius of impact against multiple enemies swamping your face.
