Firefighter Axe

One of the best late-game weapons to have is the Firefighter Axe. This axe is much stronger than the Modern Axe and since you will be facing a lot of enemies as you progress toward the end of the game, having a Firefighter Axe as your main melee weapon is the best choice.

Crossbow is a great ranged weapon to have late in the game. You can easily take down multiple enemies from a distance and do it quietly. The arrows for this type of bow are easier to find, in fact, you use the same 9mm infinite ammo farming method to get infinite arrows as well.

Electric Chainsaw

Electric Chainsaw is an epic weapon and a must-have for late game. It is extremely powerful and able to take down tough enemies up close. Have it in your inventory late in the game to deal with mutants that flood your bases.

Shotguns remain powerful in the early game as well late game. It is the best weapon for crowd control, especially after you get infinite ammo for it. Moreover, you can duplicate shotguns and hand them over to Kelvin and Virginia.

Last but not least, the Pistol is the handiest weapon in the entire game. It doesn’t do the most damage but you can use it to take care of mutants when you’re short on ammo for other weapons. Farm some 9mm and keep a pistol handy for end-game situations. Don’t forget to add pistol attachments.
