Deathloop has a unique approach when it comes to its weapons. Instead of having dozens of different weapons, Bethesda’s latest IP uses different types of mods for a handful of guns. With a number of special weapons available to unlock and a streamlined level system, it won’t take long to find the best weapons in the game. Deathloop.
We’ve broken down each weapon and detailed the modified versions you should use. Remember, the weapons mentioned below assume you’ve found rare versions.
Overall the best weapon in Deathloop
No stick, best weapon in Deathloop is a silent Court. When equipped with the right Trinkets, we play the whole game like James Bond holding the golden gun. However, you will have to rely on luck to find a Court equipped with the Suppressor privilege. Take to the Silent Court as soon as you find it, and you’ll never have to think twice about which gun to use again. However, that’s only if you’re running the best Trinkets. So what are the best Trinkets to run for the Silent Court?
- Straight Gun: The accuracy of targeted shots is significantly increased over a wide area.
- Lighting Strike: The distance at which your weapon deals complete damage is significantly increased.
- Sure Shot: Dramatically increases this weapon’s accuracy range.
Best LMG in Deathloop
Now that we’re done with the Court, it’s time to give the Pepper Factory some love. Again, it’s about finding the right mods for these weapons. When it comes to MG-1 Pepper Mill, the best mods you can find are Zero In and Open Wounds. Zero In reduces the bullet’s spread as it continues to fire. Since Pepper Mill is not very accurate with sustained fire, Zero In keeps Colt on target, especially when tracking Julianna on rooftops.
Open Wound works against normal NPCs for some reason. Colt wanted to maintain constant motion, using Shift Slab and general acrobatic abilities to avoid fire from the front. Open Wound deals damage over time once you’ve shot an enemy, dealing a bleeding wound.
Of course, Deathloop does not allow himself to participate in full-scale gunfights with NPCs. Focus a lot on the “silent killer” mechanic, piercing Blackreef with an LMG feels counterintuitive to the game’s design.
Charlie Montegue drops the best handgun in Deathloop. No, we’re not talking about the Legacy Gun, which you get by playing Charlie’s brutal game in Karl Bay. We are talking about Strelak 50-50. This fully automatic shotgun has an amazing base range, which increases when you equip the Illuminator Kit. Call of Duty: Warzone players remember how the Streetsweeper pistol was tamed. Strelak 50-50 is that OP level. In the end, it fired two shots at once. Yes, this passive perk will eat away at your ammo, but with the rich cartridges and suppliers on Blackreef, you shouldn’t feel like you’re running out of ammo too often.
Mod-wise, we weren’t too concerned with finding the “right mod” for Strelak 50-50. Instead, let’s focus on the best trinkets for Charlie’s shotgun.
- Speedloader: Reload speed is significantly increased. (As close to instant reload as you’ll get.)
- Hipster: Hits from the hip have minimal deviation.
- Lighting Strike: Because we’re relying on increased damage range.
These trinkets, combined with Strelak’s base stats, make it the best close-range weapon in the game. Juliana will never stand a chance.
We have selected two weapons to award “Best SMG in Deathloop“Medal for. First up is Frank’s weapon of choice, the Constancy Automatic, which we’ll class as legendary. Even though it’s a legendary gun, you can still find different versions of it. All you have to do is find and kill Frank in his nightclub on Fristad Rock over and over again. Constancy will always come with the same main buff that allows you to reload and fire simultaneously.
The best version of Constancy we’ve found (pictured above) comes with a Feedback Loop feature, which stacks damage on landing. We paired it with the Hailfire Trinket to give a gun that fired pretty fast. This Constancy rips through anything it aims for, including Julianna.
You may have developed a special relationship with LIMP-10. The rusty version has been with you since the moment you woke up on that beach all those loops before. So LIMP-10 is the best in Deathloop?
There is a silence in which you can step your hand. However, you will have to rely on luck to find it. Equip your silent LIMP-10 with the same gear as your Silent Court to build the ultimate silent assassin. You can also equip the Hailfire Trinket to turn your LIMP-10 into a stealthy laser beam. We were lucky to find this LIMP-10 after opening the secret service tunnel connecting Hangar 1 and Hangar 2 in Karl Bay. There will always be a rare LIMP-10 in that room. You will only have to wash and repeat a few times to find the silent one.
Aleksis Dorsey is another good source for farming LIMP-10, as he will always drop two when killed. We’ve found LIMPs with a vampire mod on his body that, when dual used, keep Colt alive while facing a hail of bullets.
Let’s face it: Everyone wants to get their hands on the Sepulchra Breteira sniper rifle in Deathloop. (No, we don’t know how either.) So let’s talk about how to find a sniper and why you should always keep it on your back. Head to Updaam in the afternoon. You’ll hear a disgruntled Eternalist complaining about working late, spending too much time wrapping presents for Colt. That Eternalist is hiding in a sniper’s nest outside Dorsey Manor.
To take them down before the ambush, face the present afterwards:
- Turn around and look up. You will see an open window.
- Toss a grenade through a window and then move above it as it explodes.
- Take down the remaining enemies and claim the sniper. You can repeat this as many times as you want to find different mods for the sniper.
So why should you always keep a sniper on your back? Range makes detecting Julianna much easier. You won’t snipe Eternalists for anything other than fun, and the best way to use a sniper rifle is against your opponent assassin.
