These are the weapons that you encounter during Cry of Fear.NOTE
: Some weapons are easy to miss, and most are optional to get.Switchblade
: The Switchblade is a weaker weapon, with two options on how to hold it. One way provides a faster swing rate, with less strength, (swiping motion) and one provides a slower swing rate, with more strength. (stabbing motion) Right click to alternate to your preferred wielding option.
Location: Found after intro level. Glock 19 9mm
: The Glock is the very first gun Simon finds in Cry of Fear. It has a moderately high magazine size, and a decent fire rate. Though it is the weakest firearm in the game, a surplus of ammo is found, making it very useful. Later on, a tactictal light can be equipped to the Glock, making it so you no longer have to have your phone equipped to light the way.
Location: Found in the beginning of the apartments in the first chapter. An arm extruding from the ceiling holds it. Go up to it and push 'E' to equip it in your inventory. Simon's Cell Phone
: Not really a weapon, but a very useful tool during the first chapters, primarily used as a light source to help navigate dark areas. Though there are moments when you need to call a number, or recieve a call. Press 'Z' to bring up the dialpad, and right-click to turn the flashlight on and off.
Location: Found after intro level. Hunting Rifle
: The 3rd or 4th Simon comes across during the game. (Depending on whether or not you pick up the m16 beforehand.) An extremely high strength but low rate of fire makes this gun only useful at long range.
Location: Found in Gustav Dahl Park after correctly placing the statues.Remington 870 (Shotgun)
: The second firearm Simon finds. The Remington 870 displays a very high strength, with a low rate of fire. This gun holds a total of 6 bullets in one clip.
Location: Found early in the game after the apartments, at the construction sites. M16 Assault Rifle
: The M16 can be found either right after the 1st chainsaw chase with the Sawrunner, or later on in the bus when you are looking for 2 fuses. It is also either the 3rd or 5th gun Simon finds. The M16 is a moderately strong firearm featuring a 3-round burst or a Single-fire option. I prefer single-fire just because It makes it much easier to conserve ammo, as some monsters dont take 3 shots to kill.Fists/Pistol Whip
: The fists/pistol whip are almost always available. This weapon is moderately fast, but slow compared to other weapons. Although this is the weakest weapon in the game, it comes in handy when low on inventory space. Another upside is that it doesn't affect accuracy when dual weilding with another weapon unlike other melee weapons.
Location: Ability acquired sometime later in the story.VP70
: The VP70 is the fourth firearm that Simon comes across. The VP70 has a 18-round magazine. It also has a very fast fire rate, a moderate to low recoil, and fires in 3 round bursts. Because the recoil can make it difficult to land all 3 shots, it is a good idea to start your shots low. The VP70 cannot be switched to single shot fire. Ammunition is plentiful in the area that you find the weapon, but not so much later on. The Glock 17 is a much better option, because the Glock gets a tactical light eliminating the need for dual wielding with the Cell Phone. The VP70 has the highest magazine capacity out of all pistols, and is the second strongest gun before the revolver.
Location: In an alley at the end of Chapter 4, after the Chainsaw Chase and Before the College.Tactical Light (Taclight)
: The Tactical light is an attachment for the Glock 19. It is very useful in dark and lengthy hallways, because it illuminates a very long, narrow distance. It is clearly a better option than the phone light, knowing it does not use a battery, (lasts forever) and it makes it so you no longer have to dual weild to have a light source and a handgun.
Location: Can be found on the lower level of the building, shortly after jumping through the bus window in Chapter four.P345 Pistol:
The P345 is an extremely strong revolver. Though, the recoil can make it difficult to land consecutive shots. This gun also has a 5-round magazine.
Location: The location of where you acquire this gun differs based on your gameplay. For example, you first pick up the gun in the mental asylum, towards the end of the bowling alley. At this part, however, the P345 has no ammo, making it useless. Not too far along, you meet the doctor behind a gate that you wish to pass. The Doctor states that if you give him the gun he will open it for you. You can say No or Yes. If you say No, you keep the gun past that moment. If you say Yes, He takes the gun and runs. If you do this, you will get the gun on the Mental Hospital 3rd floor after killing him.
