Killzone 2 Those of you anticipating Killzone 2 don't have long to wait--we're two weeks away from the game's release! Of course, by now you've probably played the demo, but you're no doubt curious to see what other surprises the game has in store for you. Well as it happens, I have finished...

Well as it happens, I have finished the campaign and played a good amount of multiplayer, and I can say with vehemence that most of Killzone 2's weapons are awesome to shoot, whether you're aiming at Helghast hordes or looking down your sights at human players. This isn't a full list, but I wanted to show a few of these terrific instruments of death.
Weapon: M82 Rifle
This is my main default weapon when playing, not just because it's a great all-rounder, but because its scope makes zooming in a huge pleasure. It takes a few more hits to down Helghast scum with the M82 than with the Sta52, but its effectiveness at short- and long-ranges make it an excellent fallback.
Weapon: VC5 Electricity Gun
It's got a long recharge time if you go too crazy with it, but this thing is the most powerful weapon in the game. When it appears in the refinery mission, you'll be taking down sentry bots and standard enemies without a second thought. It's fun to use and a powerful killing machine.
Weapon: VC21 Boltgun
Strength: Exploding bolts
My favorite weapon in Killzone 2. We've seen nailguns and the such before, but this thing feels just right. The bolt flies into your enemy, carries him backwards, sticks him to any object behind him, and explodes a few seconds later. That is fantastic in anyone's book, though it takes a talented gunner to take the Helghast down at long range with one.
Weapon: Sta52 Assault Rifle
Strength: It's always there when you need it
If there aren't any M82s lying around, this is likely your go-to gun. Packs more punch than the M82, but the iron sights make it less accurate at long range. It's a solid rifle and gets the job done every time.
Weapon: VC9 Missile Launcher
You'll face tanks from time to time, but this missile launcher will blow them to smithereens, and gazing down the sights is more satisfying than with similar weapons in other games. Explosions in Killzone 2 look amazing, and anything that lights the sky up with fire is awesome in my book.
There are other weapons of course, such as the fantastic flamethrower, and the less fantastic sniper rifle (do we really have to have Sixaxis functionality forced on us like this?), but aside from that one weak point, shooting guns in Killzone 2 is an absolute joy. We'll be bringing you a full review closer to the game's release date, but I'll drop more information on this highly anticipated first-person shooter between now and then.
@SSKing I was telling my cousin about that. I miss the Sta52's shotgun. It was fun as hell to kill someone in multiplayer with it. Oh can you still throw the knife?
@crispo1981 they said in the article that these aren't all the weapons in the game they are just the ones that he wanted to share because they were so fun to use in-game.
please, i can do anything on killzone besidez pick up more than 1 gun is there any way i can pick up 2 or 3 gun at the same time???
they shouldve left the secondary fire on from the first killzone... the M82 Rifle had the grenadier at the bottom and the Sta52 Assault Rifle had the shotgun
slaymanio1 "XBOX 360 s sssssssssssuuuuuuuuucccccccccckkkkkkkkssssss all the way" If thats true than ps3 must suck even more since its losing in the console sales and that sony had to fire 16000 workers because of ps3 making huge losses and also because the system sold 25% less units this year than last year.
the game store opens at ten i have class from 9-12 guess wat im leaving class to go get this game hehe
Wow you people are Fanboy's to the max! i mean, you guys go online and start spamming "RAWR PS3 IS SUUUP3RR B3TT3R THE XBAWKS 392 RAWLOLOLOLOL KILLZH0N3 2!!!!!!!!! RAWHAHAHA NO LIFENOLIFENOLIFE!!!!" i mean seriously just play the damn game and stop complaining and compare chickens to pigs. P.S the graphics are the same honestly if you people are going to cry over graphics you need to go to school or get a job.
Stilll cant wait to get it here in the states. Seems like it wud b better than COD4 and COD WAW easily... and 10 times better than Halo and any other #60 only game. must buy for any Ps3 owner. My PSN is mrsmiley227
15 weapons i have seen so far: knife magnum sta18 pistol m82 assault rifle sta52 assault rifle sta14 rifle sta11 submachine gun Ls13 shotgun heavy machine gun (Rico always has one) sniper rifle m327 grenade launcher vc21 bolt gun vc5 electricity gun vc9 missile launcher flamethrower not too shabby if u ask me
People complain about the use of Sixaxis, but really, how hard is it to hold still? Pick up your controller now and hold it in both hands with finger on aim. I did it and can hold it perfectly still (apart from the slight movement which can't be avoided). Snipings gonna be good and it means a slight thing extra to do.
CANT WAIT 2 USE THAT HANDGUN MAKE THE GAME MORE OF A CHALLANGE THAN IT ALREADY IS AND TO KOONMONKEY23 IF U READ THE TEXT ON EACH GUN U WOULD C THAT HE RIGHTS AND THE LESS FANTASTIC SNIPER RIFLE
I think GR found an excellet way to use the sixaxis function in KZ2 and i dont think they are forcing us to use it you always can choose not use the sniper rifle or choose one of the many generic fps on the market, or anybody state why infinity ward "force us" to press a button to hold the breath and have a steady aim??? personaly i will develope steady hands to become a good sniper in KZ2, the better and realistic approach to get a good shoot in real life, way to go GR jejeje see you all the 28th
Yes, there's a shotgun. Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7LYLS0Gcgs for video of multiplayer with shotgun. Also a revolver with unlimited ammo (good for shooting crates to save other ammo.) The demo is really nice. The gameplay has a very solid, weighty, realistic feel.
blade 2764, you are so immature. How can you think halo is the only good game on xbox.how about cod? how about medal of honor? Killzone 2 is gonna be a hit, but its not the only game which is good
I want this game! I would let the kids,13-10 year old's, play it if there was a setting to town down the blood on kills
i just pre-order my KZ2 copy dam'n i can't wait until the 27th, and also can't stop playing the demo, see you all the 28th in the warzone to share some LEAD!! jejeje
KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLZZZZZZZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEEE 2 KICK A.S I WILL BURN PS3 24/24 KILLZONE AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
man this makes me want to go out and buy a PS3 today!!! I've always been a PS3 fan, but the line-up has been a little soft (plus the cost of it); all though it's getting better and better each year! maybe, I'll talk my wife into getting a blu-ray player and go pick-up a PS3!! :)
