Genre: Survival Horror

Alan Wake 2 is 2023 survival horror game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Epic Games, a direct sequel to 2010's Alan Wake, and set in the same universe as Remedy's previous game Control.

13 years after famed crime novelist Alan Wake disappeared, FBI Special Agent Saga Anderson is dispatched to the small town of Bright Falls, Washington to investigate a series of grisly ritualistic murders. Amidst her investigation, which quickly takes unexpected and terrifying turns, Saga finds pages of a manuscript detailing the events of her investigation as well as events yet to pass. All the while, Alan Wake remains trapped in the otherworldly Dark Place, trying to write an exit through Saga's adventure in the real world.

The following weapons appear in the video game Alan Wake 2:


In contrast to the more action-horror themed gameplay of previous installments, Alan Wake 2 is more survival horror in its presentation. Inventory management akin to the Resident Evil series must be performed, with various supplies found throughout the game world, along with slower-paced combat. As in previous games, the primary enemies are "Taken" - humans, animals, and objects possessed by a dark force, who are vulnerable to light. Players control two protagonists, Saga Anderson and Alan Wake, who each have unique weapons. Saga can upgrade her weapons using manuscript fragments found throughout the game.

Each weapon also has different animations when used in conjunction with a flashlight. Handguns are held with a flashlight using the Harries technique.


Colt Python

The Colt Python with a 4" barrel returns from the previous two games, and is Alan's signature sidearm. It is once again simply known as "Revolver." It shares generic "pistol ammunition" pickups with the Glock 19, which are marked as 9x19mm rounds. It is automatically acquired in Initiation 2: Casey.

Aiming with a proper thumbs-forward grip- seems all of Alan's research for his crime novels paid off.
Reloading- rounds are dumped out and re-upped via speedloader.

Glock 19

Saga Anderson's sidearm is the "Service Pistol," based on the Glock 19. It is the first weapon the player acquires. A slightly modified version of the Glock 19, known as the Glock 19M, is the current-issue FBI sidearm.

It holds an incorrect 12 rounds in a magazine, which can be upgraded to a still-incorrect 18 rounds. Upon upgrading the magazine capacity, the Glock gains what appears to be a 17-round magazine. Another upgrade gives it the ability to fire full-automatic.

Reloading, which involves dropping the magazine, loading a new one, and releasing the slide- which unfortunately locks back even if there are still rounds in the magazine. Still, the reload is significantly more detailed than ones in some of Remedy's earlier third-person games, such as Quantum Break.


Double Barreled Shotgun

The sole long gun available to Alan is a full-length 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun.

Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun

The first long gun Saga acquires is a Sawed-Off Double Barreled Shotgun under the name "Sawed-off Shotgun." It is found in Return 2: The Heart, in a locked case shortly after the first encounter with a Taken.

The upgrade magazine for the sawed-off apparently encourages a very illegal method of obtaining a short-barreled shotgun- ironic considering the magazine's tagline is "a layman's guide to navigating US [gun] ownership laws."
Finding herself on an ominous fog-shrouded mountain trail, Saga holds the sawed-off shotgun close by. All long guns are held in this manner when idle, with the left hand used for the character's flashlight.

Reloading in a rather predictable fashion. Both shells are removed even if only one barrel was fired.

Winchester Model 7 CDL



An unknown make of crossbow is available to Saga, found in Return 3: Local Girl in one of cult stashes. Per video game tradition regarding crossbows, it deals immense damage to single targets, but is hampered by its long reload times. It can be upgraded to hold two bolts at once.

Reloading forces Saga to remain still (and vulnerable) for a short period of time. She uses the stirrup to brace the crossbow while using both hands to pull back the string.
