What guns, if any, do you get other than the starting shotgun for Voodoo users?

#1DrDuckmanPosted 4/30/2012 10:50:22 AM
I am asking because I find myself using the starting "Shotgun"(that's not actually a shotgun) still as a Voodoo user, especially against animals. I've yet to find anything better though. Is there nothing else? I heard something about a Pirate Rifle...

Also, will noone ever teach me even the starting skills for Shotguns/Muskets? The blades path seems pretty useless against ghouls and the like, and Voodoo, while cool, does not really kill things. Atleast I got the Pistol skills, but still.

Guns are inquisition only. Voodoo only gets pistols.

Yeah, see, you say that, but I already have a gun and I'm voodoo. So, unless you finished the game with a Voodoo user and can confirm that you get no other gun ever, I am not convinced.

You won't get any of the good muskets playing voodoo. You will still get some shotguns and pistols though, just not the really powerful stuff.

Yeah, I am aware, just as long as there is atleast some guns coming up, you just can't melee some creatures.

I have no idea how I would fight an Alligator or a ghoul with a sword, they are just too fast.

I'm playing it on hard and do it all the time, and by that I mean the 4 I killed :) . Just circle strafe and attack every half turn or so. Don't get greedy and you should be fine.

How I kill an alligator is exploting (on normal).  Kite them really fast next to a hill, climb it up and then start shooting your pistol. Similar tactics work on ghouls.  I don't normally like to exploit game mechanics like this, but there are simply NO other way for me to do it.  I am completely powerless against those creatures.  :/

Well I just duke it out with them on normal difficulty. It takes a lot of healing but I havnt found anything to really remedy another solution since Im going voodoo and seem to have the worst luck on earth when it comes to hitting ANYTHING with the guns in this game.

I just play hide and seek with the alligators around some sort of obstruction like a boat. Then I shoot at them while they are trying to work their way around. Lame, but tense. Otherwise I climb a hill and shoot em with my trusty shotgun.

I dont think there is enough grog in the world to take em head on. Atleast you can outlast ghouls, though I still shoot them even in melee, as I never seem to get a good swing off on them with the blade.

Yeah thats the main problem I have with the game. Most of the smaller creatures are stunned by an attack of yours but the larger ones are not at all. They can stunlock you but you can't do it to them. Kill's some of the enjoyment.
