Battle royale games have become a huge hit over the past year, and now players can take their love for the ‘every man for himself’ game genre with them on the go, thanks to Knives Out, a new mobile game that drops players into a large world where they’ll need to fight to the death. If you want to survive in the game, you’re going to have to learn how to find a gun quickly, so today we’ll show you how to find a gun in Knives Out, which will give you a much higher chance of surviving.

How to Find a Gun

Finding a gun in a game like Knives Out might seem like an extremely easy thing to do, but just because there is loot in a building, doesn’t mean it’s always going to be a gun. One of the best ways to ensure you get a gun is to look out for large areas with multiple buildings. This allows you to maximize the amount of loot that you’ll find, which will greatly increase the chances that you will find a weapon that you can use.

The best places and buildings to look for weapons are inside of houses. Usually the two-story homes that you find will have plenty of loot scattered around the different rooms and areas within. This means your chances of finding a gun are higher. These types of houses are also really good for taking cover, as they offer many corners to watch, as well as several windows which provide good vantage points for you to spot enemies moving in on you.

How to Change Weapons

Knowing how to find a gun is only half the battle, and it’s not going to do you much good if you find a better weapon and don’t know how to change to it. As you play Knives Out, keep in mind that the UI is situated all around the screen, and you’ll need to memorize it all if you want to stay on top of the leaderboards.

To change weapons in Knives Out, be sure to take note of the UI option on the bottom center area of the screen. Here you can see which two weapons you currently have in your inventory. You can also choose to change between them, as well as reload the weapon to make sure that you’re ready for any enemies that come across your path.

You should now know how to find a gun, as well as how to change between your weapons in Knives Out. You can download the game for free on mobile phones, and dive straight into the action right away.
