With Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle set to be released in a couple of weeks Koei Tecmo has released some new screenshots, gameplay footage, and additional information about some of the new weapons that players will be able to use to battle against the Titans. Alongside the traditional Slashing Gear, Scouts can now equip the even more deadly Shooting Gear. Replacing blades for guns allows for long-range attacks along with a variety of different ammo types that offer different types of damage, including: Regular Shot, Scatter Shot, Explosive Shot, Attrition Shot, Numbing Shot and Incendiary Shot Ammo. Re-loading ammo is as easy as replacing gas and blades – though in Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle if players release the reload button as the dial hits the ‘yellow’ area, they will achieve a perfect reload and the resource in use will not deplete for a short time.
The impressive Showdown Equipment is also on-hand to provide Scouts a massive increase of power in battle. Two options are available to them; the revolutionary Thunder Spear quickly deals explosive damage to wipe out Titans, and the Gatling Guns unload high levels of magazines which rip through any Titan part in sight. Once this equipment is obtained in battle, and the Showdown Equipment gauge filled, they are able to unleash high damage attacks for a limited period.
