New weapons for over-the-top Xbox One action game Sunset Overdrive are now available through the game's latest Weapons Pack, including one that causes enemies to vomit and later explode.

The Sunset Overdrive Weapons Pack, available now free with the game's DLC pass or by itself for $5, includes the following four weapons (descriptions courtesy of Microsoft).

The Plague Bomb
The Plague Bomb

  • Plague Bomb -- Instantly intoxicate enemies in the area with this weapon. Enemies hit with the Plague Bomb will start vomiting, take damage over time, and explode when killed. Plus, enemies affected by the Plague Bomb can spread the disease to others.
  • Rager -- Releases a confusion-inducing cloud which causes enemies to attach each other in a fit of rage. And yes, they also explode when killed (sense a bit of a theme here?).
  • Shield Buddy -- Activates a shield that protects you and your friends but also deploys bombs that will decimate your foes. No need to choose between offense and defense when you can have both with the Shield Buddy.
  • Multi-Lock Rocket Launcher -- The most literal of the weapons included in the pack, the Multi-Lock Rocket Launcher does exactly that and locks on up to eight targets. Release the trigger and send a legion of homing rockets at your enemies.

In other Sunset Overdrive news, Microsoft and Insomniac Games have released the game's official Best of Sunset Overdrive Music soundtrack through iTunes, Spotify, and other digital platforms. There are 18 tracks on the album, including songs from Dan Sartain, Bass Drum of Death, and Meat Market.

Finally, Microsoft reminds gamers that this coming Monday, December 1, is the last day to buy the Sunset Overdrive Day One Edition. It includes a range of exclusive digital content, including a "Nothin' but the Hits Gun," a Fizzie outfit, and a mighty hammer called Hardcore! Hammer.
