Rage 2 is the latest first-person shooter from Bethesda and along with its colorful wasteland comes hordes of mutants and machines to shoot. In order to survive this you might be wondering how to unlock new weapons in order to give yourself a chance. You’re going to need strong weapons, the kind of weapons that only a Ranger can have. The good news is that unlocking these weapons is simple, you just have to be willing to put in some leg work.

As a Ranger, you are privy to some of the best technology around, nearly all of which can be found within the Arks. Each of these can only be unlocked by a Ranger and all you have to do is walk up to it and focus and voila. While some of these house new over-the-top abilities for you, others house the powerful weapons you’ll be using to mow down the hordes opposing you.

The first example of an Ark that gives you a weapon is likely to be the Ark underneath Gunbarrel. You reach this as you proceed through the story mode, so it is very hard to miss. Once you’ve unlocked it, you’ll be rewarded with the Combat Shotgun.

While a shotgun in a game is nothing new this one changes fundamentally if you aim down the sights. Doing so melts the pellets together into a single powerful slug. This means hip-fire is great for groups while aiming really does target a single foe. You can find other weapons in other Arks around the world, so the best thing to do is to hunt them down. You’ll be doing this to get new abilities anyway, so it is well worth your time.
