Darkwind offers a wide variety of weapons you can mount on your vehicles from flamethrowers for close range combat to mounted artillery mortars for long range mayhem.

Information about pedestrian weapons is available on the Pedestrian Weapons page.

Weapons take up a certain amount of bulk and a weapon slot. Most vehicles have 6 weapons slots: 2 front, 2 rear and one on each side.

Besides bulk there are a lot of other factors worth taking under consideration when choosing your weapons, such as close- and long-range accuracy, recoil, amount and type of damage it does, and whether it does splash damage.

Weapons are bought from local mechanic shops or stripped from looted cars, and like all other items in Darkwind are subject to the dynamic economy, which means not all weapons are always in stock, and some weapons are quite rare and expensive.

TODO:

  • Extend intro
  • Add this overview table like to all the weapons pages:
  • Add weapon CR of Napalm Gun to the tables.
  • Enter missing weapon weights to the tables.
  • Add or link info regarding continuous fire bonuses.
  • See about adding recoil to the weapon info (although it's very hard to measure)

Effect of relative speed

The relative speed of two cars affects the chance to hit, although not all weapons are affected the same[4].


  • Affected less than normal:
    • Radar Guided Missile
    • Car Rifle
    • Heavy Car Rifle
    • Laser
    • Heavy Laser


  • Affected more than normal:
    • Car Grenade Launcher
    • Mounted Mortar
    • Paint Gun
    • Smoke Gun
    • All types of single-shot rockets


  • Affected a lot more than normal:
    • Rocket Launcher
    • Micromissile Launcher


  • Affected a normal amount:
    • All other weapons


Exact info on the new weapons is unavailable, but we can expect them to follow similar logic with ballistics weapons being heavily affected and the Heavy Car Rifle being less affected.


Effect of Driving/Firing Direction

There is a 10% (approximate) accuracy penalty for firing in the direction opposite to the one you are traveling (i.e. firing rear weapons while driving forward, or firing front weapons while driving in reverse).


Weapon Ratings

On the official Darkwind weapon info page the following rating system is used for the damage and accuracy of weapons:

  • Damage Levels
  1. None (0/7)
  2. Low (1/7)
  3. Medium (2/7)
  4. Medium-High (3/7)
  5. High (4/7)
  6. Very high (5/7)
  7. Extremely High (6/7)
  8. Exceptionally High (7/7)


  • Accuracy Levels
  1. Terrible (0/8)
  2. Very Poor (1/8)
  3. Poor (2/8)
  4. Quite Poor (3/8)
  5. Reasonable (4/8)
  6. Good (5/8)
  7. Very Good (6/8)
  8. Excellent (7/8)
  9. Exceptional (8/8)
