Ranged Weapons

Used for ranged combat, they are effective against humans but have a lesser effect against supernatural beings, except the flamethrower, which is very deadly against any race.

Name Description
Crossbow Unlike virtually every other ranged weapon in the game, a vampire's damage reduction does not apply to the damage caused by a crossbow's bolts, making it an effective, if slow-to-load, single-shot weapon.
Braddock 9mm A small, light machine pistol that fires a 9mm pistol round, not made for accuracy as much as to deliver the largest amount of ordinance in the shortest period of time.
Brokk 17c A 9mm standard pistol with a polymer grip and guide rod (instead of metal) that makes it lighter than other pistols.
Colt Anaconda A .44 magnum revolver. Feelin' lucky, punk? A large caliber monster with the power to stop almost anyone dead in his tracks.

Jaime Sue This is a standard rifle for sport hunting. It has to be reloaded after each shot.
Flamethrower Flamethrowers, in one form or another, have been used since ancient times. This one propels burning fuel in a several-foot arc, scorching everything in its path.
Lassiter Killmatic The Uzi was developed to be a reliable and compact gun, robust enough to take a lot of punishment, and accurate enough to dish it out in a hurry.

Limited recoil and climb make one handed firing feasible.
McLusky Calibre 0.50 This heavy gun was originally designed as a sport pistol for target shooting competitions. Due to the intimidating look of this massive .50 cal, it has been adopted as a favorite in movies and on TV shows as the all-purpose Big Gun. The Desert Eagle is one of the few gas-operated handguns ever produced, and one of the most powerful and heavy pistols available on the market.
Revolver .38 This is a cheap, small-caliber handgun used by start-up goods in alleys across the country. Also known as a purse gun.
Steyr Aug Even if the Steyr AUG AI was lackluster as a weapon it would still have a lot going for it aesthetically, but this lightweight Austrian assault rifle has proved reliable and effective, making it a popular weapon in militaries around the world. A 4X scope is attached for improved accuracy.
Utica M37 The 12 gauge M37 is designed for close quarters use as a home defense weapon. Tried and true service for military and law enforcement the M37 features all metal parts and a a bottom feed and ejector for both righties and lefties. It has moderate recoil and is fairly light for ease of use.
Dragon's Breath* In accordance with the protocol to the Geneva Convention of 1983 the use of phosphorous munitions in populated areas is prohibited. This sawed off shotgun fires them nevertheless.
