The Outer Worlds Weapons contain many different types, including: Bullet Weapons, Energy Weapons, Melee Weapons, and Science Weapons. Bullet Weapons have light and heavy ammo. Energy Weapons have special effects and are charged rather than reloaded. Melee Weapons have a short-range but powerful, effect and no need for any kind of ammo or charge. Science Weapons, not much is known about them yet, but there is a “Shrink Ray”.


Weapon Management

Players can equip up to 4 weapons equipped at a time, by navigating to the weapon, then selecting the weapon slot at the top of the screen. On the Weapons Ledger, you can also inspect, compare them, flag them as junk, or break them down for parts. Players with the Engineering skill can repair weapons on the weapons ledger as well.


Weapon Conditions

Overtime, weapons degrade with excessive use and can break and will have minimum effectiveness once the condition reaches zero. Players can find a Workbench and repair it, or you can do it if you have the Engineering skill. Or have a vendor do it.

Weapons all have their own individual level which determines how much damage they deal.  Using the Tinkering option at the workbench, you can increase the level of a weapon.

Throughout the game, you'll find weapons that have a suffix attached to it at the end designated by the weapon's manufacturer: Spacer's Choice - mk 2, Hammersmith - II, T&L - Ultra, and Joch - 2.0.  These weapons are not actually more powerful than their non-suffixed predecessors.  The reason that their damage looks to be higher is due to their level (they also drop at a higher level); a level 20 non-suffixed weapon deals the same amount of damage as a level 20 suffixed weapon.  It should be noted that tinkering costs increase based on the subsequent number of upgrades already purchased.  A weapon that drops at level 2 and is upgraded by 18 levels will cost the player exponentially more than instead, finding a weapon at level 18 and upgrading it by 2 levels.
