Overview[]

At this point in the tiers, the weapons start becoming more sophisticated, with better attributes and no longer being as makeshift. Of course, some of these weapons are still homemade and 'rough 'n' ready', but now you're starting to see proper weapons being introduced. The Sewage Shotgun, Pew Pistols, The Flint Stone, Bamboo Claws and the Brass Rifle are all in that 'rough 'n' ready' category, but they'll carry you well enough. The Sewage Shotgun is a better crowd control weapon than anything else in its league right now, while the Pew Pistols and Brass Rifle deal with undead admirably for still relatively new players. There are worse weapons than the Bamboo Claws and The Flint Stone, while the Bruise Control is a great heavy hitter, with strong damage and force.

However, the proper weapons are first seen at this tier. Knuckledusters are the first commercial hand-to-hand weapon so far, with the other alternatives from lower tiers, such as the Raised Stakes being homemade again, and improvised weapons. The Sharpened Shovel and Meaty Cleaver are the main attraction of the tier, both being based off true melee weapons well known to people, being a shovel and kukri respectively. These weapons, being strongly made and made of steel, are the first time you'll get your hands on a proper weapon.
