Weapons Page


In The Grid there is a large arsenal to use to kill your opponents. There are two types of weapons. First are the spawned weapons. These are weapons you will find on the ground to pick up. There is also a group of non-spawned weapons. Besides these two groups there are also two special weapons. These weapons canít be picked up, but each player starts with his/her default weapon after a re-spawn. Actually they have the weapon on the first player spawn, but the player doesnít start with ammo so it canít be used until ammo is picked up for it. All weapons in the game use the same ammo, so no need to look for ammo boxes for the one particular gun you have. Right now each gun shot uses one ammo cell, but this may change later to balance the weapons out, more powerful guns will probably take more ammo. Here is the description of each weapon along with a screenshot if we have one.
