If the shotgun is the go-to weapon for most enemy encounters, the Ripper is what you turn to when you run out of shells. This triple-barreled machine gun is able to mow down enemies up close, as well as control large crowds of enemies with its extremely high fire rate. It’s a great gun for players who like to get up close and personal, as the accuracy falls off with range.
Although it’s not as damaging as the shotgun or any of the explosives, the Ripper stands out due to its awesome sound design and stunning effect. Laying into a single target causes them to seize during the spray of bullets, usually rendering them useless. With a deluge of spent casings, the Ripper is easily able to lay waste to a group of unlucky aliens.
