Weapons in The Surge The Surge Guide

The below chapter provides information, tips and discusses types of weaponry available in The Surge. In here, you will learn which situations match with which weapons and what individual statistics of gear refer to.

Statistics

Weapon selection is limited to two factors - your playing style and which weapon type goes best with it - Weapons in The Surge - Equipment - The Surge Game Guide

Weapon selection is limited to two factors - your playing style and which weapon type goes best with it. At the beginning of the game, it is a good idea to test every available weapon class and pick what suits you most. Apart from range, there are five properties that describe a weapon, which should be treated as the final factor in weapon selection. Remember that, during the game, you will be finding implants that boost individual parameters of your weapon.

Base Damage

This is the basic statistic that tells you how many health points the opponent loses after taking a hit into an unarmored body part, or weak spot in the case of machines. This value is decreased by armors and their specific properties, as well as shields generated by the drone. I general, the higher the damage factor, the more efficient the weapon is in a variety of situations. Still, you should also take the remaining parameters into account.

Impact

This parameter describes your chances of knocking the opponent out of balance in a single blow. The majority of human opponents (depending on the armors they wear) have different stability parameters. If the weapon's momentum value is higher than the armor value, the opponent may be knocked down, which will let you deal some more damage. Finally, with a series of blows, you can thwart opponent's counter attack, or knock him out of pace in situations, in which he wants to strike.

Attack speed

This statistic does not require any explanations. The higher the value, the more blows you can land within a specific time limit.

Proficiency scaling

This parameter describes how fast your character will master the specific type of weapon. Proficiency allows you to deal higher base damage with the weapon type, even if the statistics of that weapon have not changed. For each type of weapon, this statistic is scaled separately. This means that picking a weapon at the beginning of the game is nearly synonymous with the necessity to complete it using that weapon. The higher the value, the faster you will be familiarizing yourself with the weapon and the more effective you will be at wielding it.

Energy Gain

The final value tells you whether or not, you will have to land many strikes with the weapon to charge the energy bar. What makes this important is that the energy accumulated in your exoskeleton is what allows you to perform executions. What is even more, the higher the value of the statistic, the more likely you will be to use implants or drone functions that consume energy.

One-Handed Weapons

The basic and the most versatile weapon type. Don't expect any serious damage, but the attack speed offers quick hits and a quick recharge of the energy bar. The best weapon for novice players and those who haven't had any major experience with the genre.

Single-Rigged Weapons

The other variant of a one handed weapon. Characteristic for its powerful hits and the ability to throw the opponents off balance. Deals serious damage, but the attack speed is lower than in case of a One-Handed weapon, while its strikes charge the energy bar much faster. A good choice for players that prefer to throw single hits mixed with constant dodging, and experienced players that will be able to find an opening in opponents' defense.

Staff Weapons

The easiest two-handed weapon. Medium damage with long range and fast combinations. Good choice for novice players that want to choose a two-handed weapon. The only downside is the lagging energy bar. IF you've decided to equip a Staff, make sure to use implants that offer better stamina or faster energy recharge, enabling you to throw more hits in a shorter amount of time.

One of the more difficult types of weaponry. Requires a lot of experience and skill, as well as constant energy management.
