Modder brings firearms to The Witcher 3

Have you ever felt that The Witcher 3 needed a little more of the wild west? Want projectile weapons that pack more of a punch than Geralt’s crossbow? This is where Roenaxx’s “Firearms” mod comes into play, adding firearms to the game. 

Don’t worry, this mod will not make Geralt’s swordplay obsolete, or negate the usefulness of the game’s crossbows. Firearms are “finisher” weapons, with limited ammo and ten distinct models. While these weapons are powerful, ammo will be in short supply, with the game offering seven ammo types across three quality tiers, offering a total of 27 ammo types if silver bullets are included. 

If Geralt’s in a tricky situation, it may be time to dust off your hand cannon, a weapon with enough stopping power to finish off hardy foes. Need more ammo, you can craft that with the right materials, Geralt is an expert alchemist, so this feature isn’t exactly immersion breaking. That said, guns are a strange addition to The Witcher 3. 

If you want to try something a little different with your next Witcher 3 playthrough, you can give this mod a try. If nothing else, this mod adds something a little more powerful to Geralt’s ranged arsenal, even if Witchers typically dislike that kind of combat. 

Below is a short trailer which showcases The Witcher 3’s Firearms mod. Roenaxx’s Wither 3 Firearms mod is available to download at Nexus Mods.
