Weapons in The Surge are the player's primary offensive option and will be varied in application. It is not yet known what the specific weapons are but this page will be updated as more information about the game is released. Blueprints for weapons can be acquired by severing them off of an enemy. The components you need to build them can be found from exploring. There may be rare components you can only get by killing a particular enemy in a particular way, or have a few limited ones in specific scenarios like opening up a secret area or doing a certain thing like completing a big quest line.
Weapons (similar to armour) have a Impact state (stability for armour), Impact works similar to Stability but is a measure how much force your weapon produces when you attack. Typically large, slow, heavy weapons have high impact compared to small but more nimble weapons like twin-rigged or staves. Impact is how likely you will stun an enemy with each blow, allowing you to interrupt enemy attacks easier. Making heavy weapons more suited to aggressive relentless attacks allowing you to constantly stun the enemy, while lighter impact weapons being more suited to hit and run attacks. unlike armour weapons have 5 impact types: Very high, High, Medium, Low, Very low. (very high being able to punch through most enemies without stopping and very low doing almost nothing). Bare in mind, enemies have armour too. The stability of their armour will affect your weapons effectiveness at stunning them.
In The Surge, all weapons fall into 2 categories Handheld Weapons and Rigged Weapons, and five sub-categories One-Handed Weapons, Staves, Heavy-duty Weapons, Single-rigged Weapons and Twin-rigged Weapons.
