Top 5 Best Resident Evil Village weapons, stats, and how to get them

All weapons listed below are unlockable within the main campaign and are listed with their base weapon stats and unlock criteria.

1. M1851 Wolfsbane Magnum

  • Power: 1700
  • Rate of fire: 1.5
  • Reload Speed: 2.5
  • Ammo Capacity: 5

After defeating the third boss, players must use the elevator to get back to the surface. Cranking opens the door to the right. Walk down the path behind that door until near the treasure chest market.

Following a small path in that area, players will come upon a large house where they must enter through a small hole around the side of the front door. Once inside, the chest on the right will hold the M1851, one of the most powerful guns in Resident Evil Village.

2. SYG-12

  • Power: 1160
  • Rate of Fire: 2.2
  • Reload Speed: 3.5
  • Ammo Capacity: 10

The semi-automatic shotgun is available from the Duke after meeting the merchant for the first time in the fourth boss area for 180,000 Lei.

3. W870 TAC

  • Power: 760
  • Rate of Fire: 1.6
  • Reload Speed: 2.7
  • Ammo Capacity: 4

This weapon can be found after completing the Beneviento mansion in Resident Evil Village. Players must find and enter a small hut to the right of a fallen tree. The W870 will be propped up against a wall to the right of the entrance.

4. F2 Rifle

  • Power: 600
  • Rate of Fire: 2
  • Reload Speed: 3.7
  • Ammo Capacity: 4

Players must first solve the “five bells” puzzle in Castle Dimitrescu to get the F2 Sniper in Resident Evil Village. Once completed, head through the passageway of the painting. Climbing the next available ladder and proceeding down the hallway, players can find the sniper.

5. GM 79

  • Power: 1200
  • Flashbang Power: 0
  • Reload Speed: 2.7
  • Ammo Capacity: 1

After beating the third boss, head to the surface through the elevator in the mines and proceed to a mechanical door that leads to the magnum.

Opt to go through the other nearby door instead, which will take players to a path where a sign says “This Way.” Turn left and follow the stream till there is a house marked with an Iron Insignia key. By using a key to enter that house, players can then pick up the GM79.
