    Wolfenstein

    Wolfenstein is a recent reboot of the classic FPS series. It casts the player in the role of a battle-hardened US soldier up against the Nazi hordes. Mix in some occult mystery, a magical hidden world called The Veil, and plenty of boss fights and you’ve got a solid single player campaign. The game also features a class based multiplayer and you can read more about it in the Wolfenstein review.

    In this guide we are going to take a look at the weaponry you have available to you in Wolfenstein. There is a core set of weapons available to you from the start of the action and each instrument of pain can be upgraded between missions using the gold you have plundered. The weapons are a mixture of traditional FPS essentials and sci-fi inspired alternatives. Here is a complete list of the weapons and upgrades in Wolfenstein.

    • Improved Rifling ($1,000) - Upgrades the weapon with tighter rifling which produces more spin on the bullet, significantly improving basic accuracy.
    • Recoil Compensator ($1,000) - Adds a muzzle break and gas venting system in order to reduce the recoil and muzzle climb experienced with each shot.
    • Silencer ($500) - Adds a combination flash and noise suppressor which makes enemies much less likely to spot the firer, especially when firing from hiding.
