There are a number of Eastward weapons to get your hands on because despite the charming aesthetic, there's a lot of violence to be had amongst the gorgeous locales. Eastward has a great array of weapons that can be cycled through to dish out some damage to the foes who stand in the way of your great adventure. Though Sam’s stun ability is useful, it’s likely that John’s immense firepower will be what takes you from point A to B - so here’s your guide to every weapon the game has to offer in this impressive indie game.

We've also got a guide on how long is Eastward, and you can read our Eastward review to know whether you should pick the game up or not.

Eastward Weapons: Frying Pan

Eastward Weapons Guide

John’s frying pan is your most trusty fallback, not only because it doesn’t require any ammo, it can deal some big damage too. You’ll have the frying pan from the very start of the game, and you’ll have opportunities to upgrade it throughout the game.

It dishes out a simple bash attack, but if you hold the attack button down, you can charge a bigger attack that will not only deal more damage, but can also be used to knock bombs over gaps. Don’t worry, we’ll come to the bombs soon.

Eastward Weapons: Bang-Bang Gun

Eastward Weapons Guide

The bang-bang gun does exactly what it says on the tin. An old toy gun that’s become a little more lethal, it’s a simple little weapon that gets the job done and picks off enemies from a short distance. The weapon can be upgraded at shops to increase its damage and ammo capacity (trust us, this is something you’re going to want to do) to make it a little tougher - but even on its own, it’ll get you out of a pickle.

Eastward Weapons: Scepter of Flame

Eastward Weapons Guide

An old squirt gun doesn’t offer much lethality by itself, but inject some pyro into that sucker, and you’re left with the Scepter of Flame.

Incredibly effective at dispatching swathes of small enemies while also able to hold its own with the titans, the Scepter can do a lot of damage in a short amount of time, perhaps to the detriment of your ammo count. You can very easily guzzle gas for this weapon, but when you’re backed into a corner, there’s no better gun to pull out than the Scepter.

Eastward Weapons: Cog Shooter

Eastward Weapons Guide

The last weapon you’ll get your hands on during Eastward, the Cog Shooter is a prop from Monkollywood that will slow down baddies nicely, providing the bouncing cog you’ve shot at them actually lands.

The cogs are completely wild, pinging around the screen until they find an enemy to connect with. Its damage isn’t as immediate as that of the Bang-Bang Gun, but it’ll do you nicely to flip the switch that’s just out of your reach.

Eastward Weapons: Bombs

Eastward Weapons Guide

While bombs can be difficult to apply in fast-paced moments of action, they’re probably more effective at solving the game’s puzzles. Each of the three forms of bomb in Eastward (the regular bomb, the homing floater bomb and the remote bomb) all have their own uses, but they have one thing in common - that they can deal some tidy damage if you can time it right in a tricky encounter.

Those are all of the weapons that Eastward has to offer, and while they’re never the absolute focus of the game, it certainly helps to have some firepower behind you to get through the adversaries that stand between you and your objectives.
