Weapon Fire rate (out of 5) Comment
Pistols 3 Pistols are Lara's standard weapons. They have unlimited ammo, but don't do much damage. They are very versatile, and work best on weak enemies.
Shotgun 2 Lara starts the game with not only pistols, but also the shotgun. It is a powerful weapon but is best used on strong, slow moving enemies. Ammo is very limited so don't waste.
Desert Eagle 3 Automatic Pistols have been replaced by a Desert Eagle, which is extremely powerful and versatile.
Uzis 5 The uzis have an excellent firing rate, although they are not very powerful. They are best used on fast moving enemies.
Harpoon gun 2 The harpoon gun is pretty hard to use, but is the only way to kill enemies when you are under the water. They are fired in sets of 4 and then they need to reload, which takes long.
Grenade Launcher 1 The grenade launcher is the slowest weapon available but is very powerful. You can often kill an enemy with just 1 shot.
MP5 4 This is a very powerful weapon but it is extremely difficult to use.
Rocket Launcher 1 The most powerful weapon Lara can find but ammo is hard to find.
