Dark Forces Weapons Inventory

Welcome to the Dark Forces Weapons Inventory. By popular demand, this is a complete list of all weapons used during the course of the levels. Browse through this section, if you have any comments EMAIL ME FREE!

All Dark Forces weapons fire by pressing the CTRL Key. Some weapons have a secondary fire, used by hitting the Z key. As you know, the Rebellion is low on resources, so you will have to scrounge some from the Empire. Here is a list of all the Dark Forces weapons:

Hand To Hand  
Modified Bryar Blaster Pistol pistol
Stormtrooper Laser Rifle storm trooper rifle
Thermal Detonator thermal detonator
Imperial Repeater Gun repeater rifle
Jeron Fusion Cutter fusion cutter

Packered Morter gun morter gun
Stouker Concussion Rifle concussion rifle
Assault Cannon assault cannon

Modified Bryar Blaster Pistol (2 key)

Blaster Pistol

DESCRIPTION: Compared with the Imperial weapons, this is slow. But it makes up for that by its accuracy! However, you wouldn't want to take on a Dark Trooper with it, so I tend not to use it! Impact diminishes over distance. However, some people find it useful. Martin Fay emailed this comment to me:

"One comment I'd make is that you rubbish the bryar pistol on the weapons pages...BUT...I originally thought this, but it's actually great if you're in big open areas. You can back off to where the shmuck stormtroopers can't hit you and pick them off ;) AND it's sparing on ammo".

STRENGTH: Weak

RESTRICTIONS: Impact diminishes over distance

AMMO: Power Cell (1 cell per shot)

PRIMARY: Laser beam

SECONDARY: Laser beam

Storm Trooper Laser Rifle (3 key)

Blaster

DESCRIPTION: You have seen these being used on Star Wars, you know what they can do and cannot do. Faster than a blaster pistol but a bit random.

STRENGTH: Weak

RESTRICTIONS: Impact diminishes over distace

AMMO: Power Cell (2 cells per shot)

PRIMARY: Rapid Laser beams

SECONDARY: Rapid Laser beams

BACK TO TOP


Thermal Detonator (4 key)

Thermal Detonator

BACK TO TOP
