Zombie Army 4: Dead War Best Weapons

Zombie Army 4 has 3 different types of guns available for players to use; Primary/Rifle, Secondary and Pistols/Sidearms.

Rifles

There are a total of three rifles in Zombie Army 4. These guns have a decent range, a large magazine and a fast reload speed. Further modifications make Rifles perfect for wiping out hordes without letting them get any close to you.

Gewehr 43
The Gewehr is a semi-automatic gun that we would personally not recommend in its vanilla form. With an adequate magazine size and quick reload speed, the weapon does not quite cut it in the damage department.

Level Rank Barrels Magazines Scopes
1 None Incendiary Mod (Incendiary Shot once barrel heats up) Extended Mag (15 Rounds) X4 scope
2 10 Incendiary Mod (Greater radius of incendiary blast) Extended mag (20 Rounds) X8 scope
3 20 Recoil Grip (Reduce gun recoil) Extended Mag (30 Rounds) Vampir Scope (Critical hits heal)
3 20 Incendiary Mod (Even greater effectiveness and radius of incendiary blast) Full Auto (Unlocks Automatic Mode for gun) Electric Bayonet (Melee attacks deal electric damage when charged)

Mosin-Nagant M91/30
Mosin-Nagant has great stopping power with 10 rounds. Not great for crowd control, but can definitely show zombies a good time.
