Top Secret Weapons in Games

With as much time as it takes to make the average video game, it's amazing that developers are still able to implement items into them that most players are not meant to find. Everything from credits to pop culture cameos have been hidden inside your favourite titles as easter eggs and references, but some of the most fascinating are always wieldable weapons. It's not only more exciting when the thing you aren't supposed to have found can be used on your enemies, but the general rule is that the deeper a weapon is hidden, the better it must be. Sometimes it even feels like a shame that the greatest and most creative of game weapons are kept so far out of reach from most average players. Then again, a big part of the appeal to these weapons is that they aren't meant for everyone. Most require significant amounts of creativity, skill, effort and time to find, but once you know they exist, it makes a whole host of incredible titles even better..


Psychosis Gun

he Psychosis Gun is a secret experimental weapon found in Perfect Dark and Perfect Dark Zero. It carries 8 rounds in the magazine like the Tranquilizer (whose model and ammunition it shares), though it's impossible to have a full magazine under normal circumstances. It's the only weapon that is unaffected by the Unlimited Ammo cheats, the only weapon without a secondary function (other than the weapons from Goldeneye), and the only weapon unavailable in the Combat Simulator and the Firing Range (for obvious reasons). This weapon also does no damage whatsoever.


Alien Blaster

The gun is very futuristic in appearance, with a chrome and red paint job. It fires blue bolts of energy and deals 50 damage without any pistol perks. With maximum levels in Science! this weapon can be modified to run using fusion cells. This reduces the damage by two points, but extends the battery size and allows for continued use of the weapon once its standard ammo cells are depleted.


Infinite Rocket Launcher

The Infinite Launcher is an unlockable weapon available in Resident Evil 4. As the name suggests, it is a rocket launcher with infinite ammunition, giving players unlimited access to one of the most devastating weapons in the series.


Ray Gun (Secret Weapons in Games)

The Ray Gun is a wonder weapon featured in Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty Online and Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It is one of the most iconic Zombies features in the game, due to the fact that it appears in every Zombies map and is the first wonder weapon created by the illustrious Group 935. It also has many different effects and animations depending on the map being played. A direct successor to the Ray Gun, known as the Ray Gun Mark II, appears in every Zombies map of Call of Duty: Black Ops II if the player purchases the Vengeance downloadable content. Another successor to the Ray Gun is the Ray Gun Mark III, seen in the right hand of the GKZ-45 Mk3 on the Black Ops III Zombies map Gorod Krovi.


Real Mega Buster

The Real Mega Buster is the most powerful ranged weapon in the game and has 300 shots. In Dead Rising, it is unlocked after killing 53,594 zombies and completing the "Zombie Genocider" achievement in a single playthrough, obtaining any ending, and saving at the prompt. In Chop Till You Drop, it is unlocked by completing all of the objectives of the mini-game Second Amendment with an S rank. Any enemy in the game can be defeated with less than five shots, and this gun easily defeats psychopaths.


Chain Chomp

The Chain Chomp is a new weapon featured in Bayonetta 2. Appearing as the exact same metal-ball-like dog with chains in the Mario series. When used Bayonetta swings the Chomps body around and will sometimes sink it's teeth into foes, dealing heavy damage. The Chain Chomp can only be equipped on the leg slot, and only onto one leg.



The Cluckshot is an Easter Egg in Gears of War 3, a hidden weapon that requires various steps to unlock. The Cluckshot is a special weapon that can be acquired in Act 4. There are a few easy steps to get this, but it can only be grabbed on Insane difficulty either alone or in co-op mode.
