The only problem with randomised weapons and loot is that you're never sure you'll get what you want - even though it's clearly what you deserve.

Well, we don't always get things our own way in life, but if you can't get exactly what you want you might be able to grab a satisfactory replacement on this list.

All of the damage stats here are approximate, so don't take it as gospel, and of course things will likely change with future game updates.

We take you through the name of the weapon, damage it does, zero range (best range for full damage), magazine size, what fires modes (denoted by S for Single, A for Auto, B for Burst and SA for Semi-Auto), the ammo it uses, and how many attachments you can strap on.
