Marauders weapon guide & gun tier list
The stats of very gun in Marauders and how to craft them
This Marauders weapon guide will list the stats of every gun in Marauders, how to unlock them and how to craft them, including both infantry weapons and ship-based weapons. These stats are all based on the Early Access Marauders Closed Alpha release, so will likely change somewhat between now and the Beta, not to mention the full release date of the game. Be advised that this guide is a work in progress: details on crafting info for infantry weapons are particularly light at this stage, but we will be adding to them as we play through the game.

Marauders gun tier list
We have compiled a Marauders weapon tier list, specifically for all the infantry projectile weapons below. We haven’t included melee weapons (which are generally pretty difficult to use effectively) or the anti-personnel mine. The below list isn’t yet finalized, as we haven’t thoroughly tested all the guns in the game (there are a lot) and we may raise or lower the position of some of these guns before we get to the end of the Early Access.
Some notes on the below: the Sawed Off shotgun is in the S+ tier purely because it occupies a pistol slot rather than the main weapon slot, which makes it very useful as a last resort (for close encounters). We’ve included the BAR (which can upgrade to 40 rounds with a compensator for reduced recoil) and the Mauser M712 (which can upgrade to an extended mag, with a stock and shoot automatic) based on the fully modded versions of each – you can assume that the unmodded versions are at least one tier lower. The Terminator is bottom tier because of its ridiculously long reload time for the single round, however, it does do a lot of damage if you land the shot, The LPO Flamethrower has terrible range and you’re likely to lose most of your health from enemy fire by the time you successfully manage to kill a player, though it is quite funny if you pull it off, and the M1941 Johnson is just pretty terrible.
|S+||BAR (fully modded), Jackhammer, Sawed Off|
|S||DP28, M16, SVT-40, MP40, MG-42, STG-44, ViperMK1|
|A||1911 Stamp, Sten MkII, Bren Mk2, Krása Rifle, M1A1 Para, Uzi, Thompson, Mauser M712 (fully modded)|
|B||Trench Gun, Liberator, Luger P08, K1 Assault, PPSH-41, MAC-10, Mosin Obrez Pistol|
|C||The LPO Flamethrower, M1941 Johnson, Terminator, Welrod|
The list of Marauders ship weapons
|Ship weapon name||Description||Cost to unlock||Cost to craft||Time to craft|
|Torpedo launcher turret||3 shots with a 8 second reload time||Lvl 7, 2x S.coin, $700||1x Metal sheet, 1x Synthetic Scrap, 2x Gunpowder||1:15|
|Rocket artillery turret||6 shots with a 2,5 second reload time||Lvl 12, 2x S.coin, $1,075||1x Metal sheet, 2x Synthetic Scrap, 4x Gunpowder||1:30|
|Flak cannon||medium fire rate, explosion radius, has large overlap, 8 shots with a 5 second reload time||Lvl 16, 3x S.coin, $1,255||n/a||n/a|
|460mm Triple Turret||3 shots with a 4 second reload||Lvl 19, 3x S.coin, $1,115||n/a||n/a|
|Howitzer Turret||1 shot with a 3 second reload time, heavy damage||Lvl 24, 4x S.coin, $2,100||n/a||1:50|
|Nuclear launcher||Large explosion radius, damage falloff, one shot||Lvl 30, 9x S.coin, $9,000||4x Metal sheet, 1x Tool Kit, 3x Hi-grade Gunpowder, 2x Cable||2:00|
Marauders weapon tier list (for ships)
Our Marauders ship weapon tier list is not as extensive as the main gun tier list, given the much smaller number of options.
The Flak turret is the best of the bunch because it is the perfect middle ground between the rate of fire, the number of shots, and the explosion radius. It’s by far the best gun for shooting down enemy boarding pods due to all of these factors.
The Nuclear launcher is great just for the comedy value (it hasn’t yet gotten old), not to mention the ridiculous damage, however the single shot, slow travel time and slow reload time mean you can only really reliably use it if the enemy is near an asteroid/larger object that you can hit so they’re caught in the splash damage – smaller targets are a nightmare to hit. Also, be careful where you’re firing it. Currently, you can reload the launcher by exiting and then re-entering the periscope, though it’s not clear if this is just an exploit or a design feature.
Most of the other guns are tiered relative to their rate of fire and ability to hit small targets.
|A||Rocket artillery turret, Nuclear Launcher|
