There are a wide variety of weapons in 3079, which can be used by either the player or another NPC. All ranged weapons use a certain amount of energy, which when depleted will cause a "life support brownout" and remove a small amount of health - however, when this happens there's also a chance to increase your total energy capacity.
Blasters: A fast weapon that is good at short to medium range, uses a small amount of energy, and can be fired very quickly. This is a good first weapon to have, as it can take down low-level enemies quickly.
Assault rifles: Fires a multi-round burst, good at medium range. Uses a medum amount of energy. This is a good all-around weapon.
Shotguns: Fires many projectiles at once, a great close range weapon. Uses medium energy.
Heavy guns: Fires a single, relatively slow projectile, somewhat similar to a rocket launcher. The shot explodes on impact, and can destroy soft terrain. Useful at medium to long range, and take medium energy to use.
Precision rifles: A powerful and very accurate rifle, great for sneak-attacks and sniping from cover. Uses medium to high energy, secondary action is a scoped zoom. Note that projectiles still take time to travel to the target, so adjust your aim accordingly.
Launchers: Fires one to three grenades that bounce and explode, can deal a great damage but uses a large amount of energy. These grenades can also deform terrain, allowing for the quick creation of traps or trenches, as well as the ability to halt an oncoming enemy by dumping it into a quickly created pit while simultaneously doing a good deal of damage to it.
Knives & Swords: Used for close range attacks that deal great damage and use no energy.
Demon Smiters: A special class of weapon (so far mainly swords), which is the only type of weapon that can do damage to the red translucent demons that you will encounter in later stages of the game. Demon smiters at or above the level of a demon will kill with one hit.
Armor comes in four forms: Boots, Leggings, Body and Helmets. Armor provides additional protection from damage. Some armor also boosts stats such as speed and mining, and can also protect you from poison.
Upgrades can be used on weapons and armor to add additional effects such as increased health, energy, damage, and skills, as well as faster weapon speed and movement speed. Only one upgrade can be put on any weapon or armor piece.
