Finding New Weapons?

Okay so i've been playing the game for a good 10 hours or so, and apart from finding about 4 guns laying around, I haven't found any other locations to purchase new weapons. I've seen all the kiosks in omega or illium that allow me to purch tech and defense upgrades but I can't buy weapons like in mass effect one?
or am I just missing all the secret locations?

Like in ME1 most of the weapons look the same. The few weapons that you acquire throughout the game can be interchanged using you weapons cache on the Normandy or before each mission. The upgrades are what you really need to worry about.

Where is the pulse rifle exactly?

Rated: +0 / -1

The pulse rifle is an assault rifle upgrade, not a usable weapon

Rated: +0 / -5

The Geth Pulse Rifle is only found on Hardcore or harder difficulties thus why some people find it and some don't.

"The first time you are on a collector ship you choose between 3 weapons and can learn a new weapon skill"

Does that mean if I am an Infiltrator I can get the Widow sniper *and* unlock the Assault Rifle?

Rated: +0 / -0

Geth Particle Beam does NOT require that you play on any particular difficulty. It is also NOT an upgrade to the assault rifle. I am playing on Normal difficulty and I found the Pulse Rifle during the mission to recon the colony Freedom's Progress. I picked it up after the first fight where you face a collector under direct control of whoever their leader is.

joyce_181502, im not sure why Azrieth4 said you unlock a weapon skill, given i was playing as a soldier, but im fairly sure that it doesnt unlock another weapon type, you simply get to choose between a sniper rifle, assault rifle, and shotgun.

@ Joyce

I am playing an infiltrator as well and almost complete with my second playthrough. I picked the assault rifle training my first time on the collector ship, and was very excited to get the Widow sniper rifle as well during my second time around but unfortunately that option was not available. The weapon pile was there but you can not interact with it.

Question of my own regarding the Geth Pulse Rifle, I just completed Tali's recruiting mission on Hardcore and did not receive it. Do you have to play the whole game on hardcore up to that point? I have been switching between HC and Vet.

About the Revenant, Claymore and Widow weapons; where exactly are they? I took up the Assault Rifle Training on my Sentinel and didn't receive any Revenant Assault Rifle. <_< Still got the Vindicator.

And I'm here again on my second playthrough, and as was previously mentioned, can't even interact with the pile. So, did I miss this or what? >_>

And yeah, by the way, this "Pulse Rifle" everyone keeps talking about is a Heavy Weapon. It's that same beam-type weapon the Collector's will shoot at you. Often. And it is found on the mission during Freedom's Progress, pretty much in plain sight. This may be getting confused with the Geth Assault Rifle that is scanned during the mission to recruit Tali for an Assault Rifle damage upgrade.

You do not buy guns in this game! you can find and research upgrades for the guns, but other than that no.

You do however find your guns in this game

Vindicator Assault Rifle - Next to Archangel on Omega
Revenant Assault Rifle - The first time you are on a collector ship you choose between 3 weapons
Geth Pulse Rifle - Found while recruiting Tali in the room right before you talk to her there will be Geth bodies in the door way, its laying at the feet of a white Geth on the right. - its not technically an upgrade to the Vindicator or if you picked the Revenant, it is however more affective VS Shields n Barriers, and less affective VS Armor, it is fully Automatic, and carries more ammo then the other Assault rifles

Carnifex Heavy Pistol - Found while recruiting Mordin, he gives it to you.

Scimitar Shotgun - Found while recruiting Samara.
Claymore Shotgun - The first time you are on a collector ship you choose between 3 weapons

Tempest SMG - Found while recruiting Tali. hard to miss, you walk right past it.

Viper Sniper - Found while recruiting Thane. on your way up the building careful not to miss it, its off in a corner.
Widow Sniper - The first time you are on a collector ship you choose between 3 weapons

Missile Launcher - First Heavy Weapon Research
Avalanche - Second Heavy Weapon Research
Cain - Third Heavy Weapon Research
Particle Beam - Found on Horizon colony while its under attack by collectors. don't worry is you miss it in your first fight with the Collectors the weapon appears 3 times during the attack on the colony

i hope this clears things up

@ both korassu and hirenses, why would i say you can get a geth pulse rifle if you cant? it is found right next to tali only if you play the entire mission on hardcore or insanity. I have tried just switching up to that difficulty right before the colossus at the end, but to no avail. It is comparable to the vindicator in damage, but has better shield pen for less armor pen. Also, as i seem to have confused some people, the new weapons at the choice in the collector ship are only available if your class can already use that type of weapon. So you get the option, say if you are a vanguard, of a beastly shotgun, or the ability to use snipers or assault rifles.

I have a theory, in order to get the geth pulse rifle, you had to have either imported a character or beaten ME2 at least once. On my first playthrough I was a scavenger like none other and missed it because it wasn't there. But on my second play, it was literally right there in the middle of the room staring me in the face practically, right next to Tali'Zorah vas Neema nar Rayya (I love the rediculously long name).

By the way, There is also a Geth Sniper Rifle, Which you can purchase from Legion after aquiring him

everyone keeps saying freedoms progress for the Collector particle beam but it's horizon not freedoms progress

Rated: +1 / -0

its Tali'Zorah nar Rayya vas Neema she was born on the Rayya and served on the Neema

Rated: +0 / -0

@gOwCoD4 - Are you referring to the research you unlock by talking to Legion? If so, that's an upgrade specifically for Legion, and is in-fact the Widow sniper rifle you can pick up on the collector ship.

To clarify, as there seems to have been some confusion, if you choose to learn a new weapon skill at the collector ship, you DO NOT receive the upgraded weapon. You need to have already been able to use the weapon type when you interacted with the weapon pile in order to get the weapon. For example, Infiltrators can already use sniper rifles, so when they interact with the weapon pile the Window sniper rifle upgrade replaces the option to learn to use snipers.

@fatalis This is partially correct. When you first recruit her she is Tali'Zorah nar Rayya vas Neema. But don't forget that once she joins and serves on your ship(the spoiler was already made earlier in the answers) her name changes to reflect it. So her name is actually Tali'Zorah nar Rayya vas Normandy ;)

As for where to find weps, it's already been said. You don't get to buy them, and there are only a few scattered around the worlds/missions.
