The guns in Hawken are of two categories: primary, and secondary weapons.
Weapons overheat – you won’t have to look for ammo on the maps because there won’t be any in the game.
The primary – or right hand – weapon will be the one you use most of the time. It overheats slowly and has a short cooldown time. These are the primary weapons revealed to this point:
- POINT-D VULCAN – Minigun: medium spread, high fire rate
- FLAK CANNON – Shotgun: high spread, strong, low fire rate
- HEAT CANNON – Cannon with a slight delay
- SA HAWKINS – no specifics yet
- EOC REPEATER – E.O.C. stands for Explosive Ordnance Chain
- SLUG RIFLE – no specifics yet
The secondary – or left hand – weapon is more of a power weapon. While very strong, it overheats quickly and has high cooldown times.
- SABOT RIFLE – Sniper rifle
- TOW LAUNCHER – Rocket launcher
- HELLFIRE ROCKETS – Fires a spread of rockets which home in on target if locked-on first
