The last update focused on the pick-ups, today we will show you the weapons in Quantum Rush.
In contrast to the pick-ups, weapons are hard-mounted on your racer and can be fired anytime, as long as your racer is not over-heating!
Every racer is shipped with a pre-installed weapon system, but if you have the credits, you are free to equip bigger and better guns anytime.
However, there are a few things to be considered here: Quantum Rush offers different weapon systems and different types of ammunition, and depending on the combination you have chosen, the gameplay will change. Every weapon system can be combined with every ammunition type. The only exception are beam weapons which are only available as ion and laser.
There are four different weapons systems. Single shot weapons fire one shot for every press of the trigger, while automatic weapons fire salvoes of multiple shots. Shotguns fire a cluster of shots at once that spread out and do damage over an area. And then there are the beam weapons that fire a continuous beam.
Ammunition comes in three types. Ion ammunition are energy based and do more damage against shields, but less damage against armour. Laser ammunition is also energy based but the focused heat damage of a laser damages shields as well as armour. Projectile ammunition is less effective against shields, but does increased damage against armour.
As you can see we have a lot of different weapons in Quantum Rush. It is important to note that there is no “ultimate super weapon”, instead you have to find the weapon that suits your playstyle best. Experimenting with the different weapons and ammunitions to find your preferred combination is one of the great attractions of Quantum Rush.
