Killzone 3 Weapons Rundown

Just wait until you see the deadly arsenal that Guerilla Games has cooked up for Killzone 3's online multiplayer modes

Our philosophy when it comes to weapons in Killzone 3 is that every weapon has its own unique role in Killzone intense battlefields. A sniper rifle is a sniper rifle, a shotgun is a shotgun and a giant armored exoskeleton is a giant armored exoskeleton. Whether you prefer the close-up carnage of a LS13 shotgun blast to the face, the clean, calculated kill of a VC32 sniper rifle or the agility and stealth of the M66 Machine Pistol, Killzone 3’s armory has the right tool for any job.


M4 Revolver
M4 Revolver
Faction: ISA
Class: Side arms
Sights: Iron sights

The standard side arm for ISA soldiers, the M4 is a slow but powerful fallback weapon in case the primary weapon runs out of ammunition.

StA-18 Pistol
StA-18 Pistol
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Side arms
Sights: Iron sights

The Helghast counterpart of the M4, the StA-18 sacrifices some power and accuracy for a higher rate of fire.

M66 Machine Pistol
M66 Machine Pistol
Faction: ISA
Class: Side arms
Sights: Holographic reflex sight

The preferred sidearm of ISA Shadow Marshals, the M66 has a very high rate of fire but not much accuracy unless fired from a crouched position.

VC8 Shotgun Pistol
VC8 Shotgun Pistol
Faction: Helghast/Visari Corp.
Class: Side arms
Sights: Iron sights

The VC8 offers good stopping power at short range, but quickly becomes less accurate over larger distances.

StA-2 Battle Pistol
StA-2 Battle Pistol
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Side arms
Sights: Iron sights

As a sidearm the StA-2 is only really useful in close quarters battle, where its tremendous power can fell most targets in a single blast.

M82 Assault Rifle
M82 Assault Rifle
Faction: ISA
Class: Rifles
Sights: Holographic reflex sight

The M82 is such a solid all-round assault rifle that its basic design has hardly changed over its years of service. Its low recoil, high fire rate, good range and holographic scope make this the workhorse of the ISA.

M82SE Assault Rifle (Suppressed)
M82SE Assault Rifle (Suppressed)
Faction: ISA
Class: Rifles
Sights: Holographic reflex sight

The suppressed version of the M82 fires in bursts to reduce recoil even further. The added suppressor prevents the player from showing up on enemy radar.

StA-52 Assault Rifle
StA-52 Assault Rifle
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Rifles
Sights: Iron sights

The StA-52 assault rifle is the mainstay of the Helghast army. Although it lacks the accuracy of its ISA counterpart, the M82, it makes up for this with a higher rate of fire and larger ammo drum size.

StA-52SE Assault Rifle (Suppressed)
StA-52SE Assault Rifle (Suppressed)
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Rifles
Sights: Iron sights

The suppressed version of the StA-52 assault rifle fires in bursts to minimize recoil. Although it reduces the fire rate, the suppressor keeps the player from showing up on enemy radar when firing.

StA-14 Rifle
StA-14 Rifle
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Rifles
Sights: Reflex sight

Fitted with a reflex sight, this powerful low-recoil rifle is the best suited for mid- to long-range engagements. While it lacks the extreme accuracy of the VC32, it has a much higher fire rate.

VC32 Sniper Rifle
VC32 Sniper Rifle
Faction: Helghast/Visari Corp.
Class: Rifles
Sights: Illuminated 2x and 5x zoom telescopic sight

Two different zoom levels allow the VC32 sniper rifle to be used in mid-range and long-range combat. For optimal accuracy, the weapon should be fired from a crouched position.

M32 Combat Knife
M32 Combat Knife
Faction: ISA
Class: Close quarter weapons

The M32 is the last resort of close quarters combatants. Suitable for both stabbing and slicing, it makes for a brutal melee attack.

LS13 Shotgun
LS13 Shotgun
Faction: ISA
Class: close quarter firearms
Sights: Reflex sight

The LS13 is a pump action shotgun with devastating close-range damage. It’s not very accurate, however, and loses its effectiveness at anything other than close range.

StA-11 Submachine Gun
StA-11 Submachine Gun
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Close quarter firearms
Sights: Iron sights

The StA-11 SMG boasts low recoil and a high fire rate, and does tremendous damage at close range. It is ideally suited for ‘run & gun’ type tactics.

StA-11SE Submachine Gun (Supressed)
StA-11SE Submachine Gun (Supressed)
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Close quarter firearms
Sights: Iron sights

The suppressed StA-11 SMG keeps the player from showing up on enemy radar while firing. The state of the art suppression mechanism does not sacrifice fire rate or accuracy.

LS57 Submachine Gun
LS57 Submachine Gun
Faction: ISA
Class: close quarter firearms

Based off the M82 design, the LS57 SMG suffers from more recoil than the StA-11, but makes up for this in range and firepower.

M224-1A Light Machine Gun


M224-1A Light Machine Gun
Faction: ISA
Class: Machine guns
Sights: Iron sights

The M224-1A is an LMG with large magazine capacity and plenty of range. It’s an excellent suppressive weapon, but has a comparably low fire rate.

StA-3 Light Machine Gun
StA-3 Light Machine Gun
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Machine guns

The StA-3 is an LMG with a sizeable ammo drum and a tremendous fire rate. It is unmatched in its suppressive capabilities, especially when fired from a crouched position.

StA-62 Minigun
StA-62 Minigun
Faction: Helghast
Class: Machine guns

Originally intended for stationary defense, the immensely powerful StA-62 can be dismounted and carried around, although the weight of the weapon slows down the operator.

VC9 Rocket Launcher
VC9 Rocket Launcher
Faction: Helghast/Visari Corps
Class: Rocket launchers

The VC9 is ideal for taking down enemy vehicles and entrenchments. Although it lacks the homing capabilities of the W.A.S.P. Launcher, it has a relatively fast reload rate.

StA-X3 W.A.S.P. Launcher
StA-X3 W.A.S.P. Launcher
Faction: Helghast
Class: Rocket launchers

Like the StA-62, the StA-X3 can be dismounted and carried. The weapon fires a volley of homing missiles in primary fire mode, and a targeted ‘bunker buster’ strike in alternate fire mode.

StA-X6 Jetpack
StA-X6 Jetpack
Faction: Helghast/Stahl Arms
Class: Vehicles

The StA-X6 comes equipped with a belt-fed submachine gun based on the StA-11 design. The range of the weapon has been upgraded to allow the wearer to fire from great heights.

LS209 Exoskeleton
LS209 Exoskeleton
Faction: ISA
Class: Vehicles

Slow and clunky but extremely well-armored, the ISA Exoskeleton is equipped with a heavy machine gun and a rocket launcher. It does have a weak spot that can affect the operator, however.

M194 Fragmentation Grenade
M194 Fragmentation Grenade
Faction: ISA
Class: Explosives

The M194 is a standard- issue fragmentation grenade with a digitally enhanced fuse igniter. It is ideal for sweeping rooms or clearing out enemy entrenchments.

PXM199 Proximity Mine
PXM199 Proximity Mine
Faction: Both
Class: Explosives

The proximity mine tracks the proximity of enemies and explodes when one enters within a two meter radius. Unless the target is extremely well-armored, this is usually enough to neutralize any enemy.

VC116 Sentry Turret
VC116 Sentry Turret
Faction: Helghast/ Visari Corp.
Class: Special

The VC116 is an automated defense turret that can be deployed by Helghast Engineers. It has excellent detection range, but only average firepower and accuracy.

LS116 Sentry Turret
LS116 Sentry Turret
Faction: ISA
Class: Special

The LS116 is the ISA equivalent of the VC116 Sentry Turret. It has an equal detection range, and matches its counterpart in firepower and accuracy as well.





Continuing from Killzone 2, players find Emperor Visari, the viscious dictator of the Helghast, dead at the feet of Sev and Rico. However this war is far from won. In the wake of Visari’s death, Helghan has devolved into a world of political scheming, rapid infighting, and murder. Now, the two most powerful men on Helghan are fighting for complete and utter dominance while Visari’s vision of Helghan is in jeopardy. With limited supplies and no re-enforcements, the ISA must now fight not to win a war, but to survive a lost one.

Killzone 3 is being developed by Guerilla Games and will be released February 22, 2011 for the Playstation 3. It is rated "M" by the ESRB.
