This page of our guide to The Sinking City explains how to access new weapons and gadgets (grenades, traps, etc.). All these items of equipment can be very useful in eliminating encountered monsters and living enemies.
In The Sinking City you don't buy new equipment in shops due to the fact that there are no classic merchants or traders in Oakmont.
In order to unlock new types of equipment, you must complete further major cases (investigations). Each time you complete a main mission, the game will inform you about rewards. There will be 1 new weapon or 1 new gadget among them. In the example from the attached image, we learned about getting access to a shotgun.
We advise that the following main investigations be completed as soon as possible:
- Quid Pro Quo - In return you will get a Shotgun. This is a great weapon to compensate strong opponents or attack groups of monsters placed close to each other.
- Fathers and Sons - As a reward you will receive a Battle Rifle. You can only fire individual shots, but each of them causes huge damage. This is a great weapon to attack strong, slow monsters.
- Self-Defense - The prize is untypically awarded during the course of the investigation, not after it has been completed. You will get a Submachine Gun and it's the only weapon in the game that can shoot continuous fire. Be careful, however, as you can run out of ammunition very quickly. Try to fire short bursts as well as aim at the heads of enemies or monsters or their weak points.
We recommend you to acquire additional skill called Silver Tongue. It guarantees a double reward for completing investigations. You can earn more ammunition for weapons (and even for stronger ones) and more ready-made gadgets (traps, grenades, etc.).
