Last words on 2.0
========================================================

Well itís been 10 months since I last updated
Resistance, 10 months since Iíve actually laid hands on
A copy, but most important of all, itís been exactly a
year since I first opened up my 60GB PS3 and took out a
copy of Resistance and decided I would make a guide for
the fantastic weapons you could use. 

Itís my only ever piece of work on a game apart from 
reviews but I did attempt to do more guides for guns
such as Rainbow Six Vegas and Warhawk. The reason I
didnít complete them was for a couple of reasons. For
RB6V it was because 1. There were 2 many guns that did
the same thing and 2. It was boring to write about
half of them because I ended up using the same 
sentences over and over again. Eventually I just dropped
the project. For Warhawk it was just plain simple, got 
to old too fast so I ended up only going on the game for 
the purpose of writing the guide. So obviously I just 
dropped that too. 

Maybe when Resistance 2 comes out Iíll be writing 
another one seeing as how I get around 100 views on 
this guide a day (Its pretty good for me seeing as how 
Iím just a 14 year old who lives in Wales and has 
nothing that interesting about my culture.)   

If you actually read to this part I thank you and hope
you find this guide as useful as possible because in 
the end it was my only goal to.

Getting Around
========================================================

Even though this guide is pretty small for the fact itís
only about weapons you encounter in R:FoM, I decided to
make a handy navigator system just to make navigating
easier so Iíve added the typical [Ctrl]+[F] which calls
up the Find menu. Enter the corresponding code next to
section that you want to view and press enter to jump to
that section.

2. About This FAQ                                 [SA20]
========================================================

Running and gunning is a fool's game; you need to be at
on with your artillery to really shine. As you progress
through the game, you'll pick up more and more guns to
add to your arsenal, but use them wisely...

This guide is all about the weapons in R:FoM, I could
never find one so I decided to make one myself. It will
explain both offline and online guns. Most Guides to
Resistance donít include a weapons part or not much
detail.

4. Rage Mode                                      [SA40]
========================================================

If you ever play online mode(Best part of the game) then
you get the chance to play as Hybrid, the main
difference between Humans is Rage Mode, it causes you to
see body heat but it also increases weapon damage (VERY
handy)

========================================================
5. Unlock able Weapons                            [SA50]
========================================================

After one play-through on any mode you will unlock 4 new
guns and 1 grenade. I will explain about them later.

========================================================
6. Weapons (1st Time)                             [SA60]
========================================================
--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA61]
--------------------------------------------------------

M5A2 CABINE - You should view this as your default
weapon of choice; it has the most ammo available to it,
it's accurate, and it causes a decent amount of damage.
It also has a Grenade Launcher function on L1 that's
handy to use when you're out of grenades or LAARK ammo
and when you feel when online you'll die if you donít
kill him quickly.

Online change - Just as good as on Single Player but
carryís only two Grenade Launcher's at a time. Can also
be another annoying weapon with infinite ammo on as you
can just nuke every thing around you!

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA62]
--------------------------------------------------------

Bullseye - Main Hybrid weapon of choice; youíll know it
from the orange bullets you're constantly dodging. It's
not the strongest or most accurate of weapons, but the
secondary Homing Tag ability is great for taking down
turret users, Titans and Angels. Press L1 to latch one
and then fire from cover.

Online change - Seems to be less accurate and has
infinite Tags.

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA63]
--------------------------------------------------------

Rossmore 236 - Essential for close encounters with Gray
Jacks and Howlers, this shotgun stuns such enemies in
their path, stopping them from swiping at you. You
should use this in tight quarters or whenever hostiles
get to close. Pressing L1 shoots both barrels - great
for killing in bulk.

Online change - *WARNING* VERY deadly at close range
when playing as Hybrid in rage mode, can reck any one's
day .Clip only holds 6 rounds too so its slows down the
killing spree.

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA64]
--------------------------------------------------------

Auger Rifle - Noobish or genius? Whatever the case,
shooting through walls is a dam great skill that this
baby brings to you repertoire. Watch for when your
crosshairs turns red to know when an enemy is waiting on
the other side of a wall and let rip; very useful
against bigger Chimera too, and with the energy shield
you can watch them die at the same time.

*Warning* Steel Heads can still hit you no matter what
as they use the gun too.

Online change - Playing as Hybrids is when this gun
becomes useful, some guy hiding behind a wall with a
Rossmore and you spotted him first? Well just pop it out
and lay a couple in the head. The shields also recharge
over time.

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA65]
--------------------------------------------------------

L23 Fareye - One of the most useful guns in the game
because of its focus ability that slows down time (hold
L1). You don't have to limit its use to extreme ranges
either as it recharges over time. Use it to nab some
head shots against some of the bigger guys.

Online change - No focus :( but you donít have to reload
your clip either.

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA66]
--------------------------------------------------------

XR-005 HailStorm - Fires green bolts that bounce off
walls and objects. Be creative; use it to fire around
corners, with L1 into a tight room just as affective as
a grenade.

Online change - Taken out :(

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA67]
--------------------------------------------------------

L209 LAARK - The rocket launcher; no game is complete
without it. This is best against Stalkers and Widow
Makers. Hold L1 to stop in mid-air then R1 to release
lots of more rockets that can kill any thing with ONE
shot.
Online change - the L1 to R1 function is neither useful
nor as powerful on Single Player.

*Online Warning* YOU WILL GET A LOT OF GREIF IN CUSTOM
GAMES WITH UNLIMTED AMMO AS; EVERY ONE SEEMS TO GRAB AND
BLOW!

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA68]
--------------------------------------------------------

XR-003 Sapper Ė As pointless as it seems at first, it
actually has 3 brilliant uses: one, lay some of its
mines on Leaper Pods to melt them away upon impact; two,
lay some down in front of you when ambushed by Rollers;
an three, drop them as a trap and L1 to detonate

Online change - Taken out :D

========================================================
7. Grenades (1st Time)                            [SA70]
========================================================
--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA71]
--------------------------------------------------------

Frag Grenade - Throw these whenever you see a cluster of
enemies or to damage foes that refuse to move out of the
way of cover .Also us them to destroy Leaper Pods if out
of Sapper ammo.
Online change - Most useful grenade online, carry limit
only 2 though :(

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA72]
--------------------------------------------------------

Hedgehog Grenade - Not as damaging as Frags but still
useful in dishing out pain to multiple targets. Use them
in similar instances to Frags and consider them to be
your helper in combat.

Online change - 2nd useful grenade online, carry limit
is still 2.

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA73]
--------------------------------------------------------

Air-Fuel Grenade - BBQ in 5-10 seconds! Only really good
in Single Player and CO-OP, as it just fry and burn. Its
sticks to walls though and makes a green gas affect with
a blast of fire soon after. Also if you hold onto O
after you've thrown it the gas will "leak" all of the
gas causing extra damage and the ability to time the
bomb although it will go off eventually.

Online changes - Last grenade to use, only good in
unlimited rounds when you can just napalm your opponent
as the only people who fall for this is noobs who ignore
the gas or people who are in a huge gun-fight and to
busy to hide, run, doge and shoot all at the time.

========================================================
8. Unlocked Weapons (2nd Time)                    [SA80]
========================================================
--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA81]
--------------------------------------------------------

Reapers - Found entering the building on 'The Gauntlet',
these two handguns target enemies in your view once they
have been under the aim of your crosshairs at least
once. Hold R1 and L1 to fire both guns at once, not
having to worry about aiming! They are pretty good as
killing menials on Hard mode and SH as you need two hits
with a gun to kill them and the Reapers have a unique
way of melee which you do this karate chop action with
both at the same time.

Online change - Taken out :(

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA82]
--------------------------------------------------------

Arc Charger - Found just before the wormhole during the
'No Way Out' chapter of Cheshire. Its power multiplies
with ever shot, tagging onto enemies for a second when
you can trigger an Are by pressing L1 to damage multiply
enemies. Very useful closely pact enemies.

Online change - Less ammo but itís a weapon
underestimated...

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA83]
--------------------------------------------------------

L11-2 Dragon - Found in the Bristol, 'Devil at the Door'
stage; after the Titan, go down the left isle with all
the mines and find it in the room. Itís just a plain
useless Flame-Thrower to most gamers but by holding L1
you can charge it up for about 2-3 seconds and release
and you got a 1-hit 1-kil to most Chimera.

Online changes - Smaller gas tank but VERY lethal to
Chimera with L1 as it will melt them on the spot! But
useless against humans unless you want to rank up on
assists.

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA84]
--------------------------------------------------------

Splitter - Found round on the second floor as you
approach the windows of the 'A Desperate Gamble' stage
in London. It fires a packet of explosive rounds that
you can split by pressing L1 as the zoom ahead. VERY
USEFULL against almost every one as itís as powerful as
the LAARK but without the blast radius.

Online change - Taken out :(

--------------------------------------------------------
                                                  [SA85]
--------------------------------------------------------

Backlash Grenades - Found immediate left in the building
after the Cathedral, (Manchester) these grenades release
a big round force shield, damaging those Chimera that
are touching inside the bubble and reflecting their
bullets into them! Also good against Stalkers that tend
to stay still and shoot. By far THE BEST grenade in
the game so you should look after them and they'll look
after you!

Online change - Taken out :( :( :( :( :( :(

========================================================
9. Ideas                                          [SA90]
========================================================

From now on Iím not going to accept any more ideas. The 
main reason is because I donít want to spend the rest of
my life updating a game. I donít care if thereís a new 
map pack or gun out I wonít put it up.

Thank you for reading and I hope to see you when 
Resistance 2 comes out!
