Mad Max (2015 VG)
Mad Max is a 2015 action-adventure video game developed by Avalanche Studios based on the Mad Max film series. The game, which mixes Arkham-style melee and vehicular combat, follows Max Rockatansky (voiced by Bren Foster) seeking revenge on Scabrous Scrotus, a vicious gang leader who stole Max's car, the Interceptor. George Miller, creator of the Mad Max movie franchise, was also involved with the development of the game.
Despite mixed reviews from critics, Mad Max was the second-best selling game in the United Kingdom in its first week of release on the UK software retail chart, only behind Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which was released the same day. According to the NPD Group, it was the eighth-best selling game in the US in September 2015.
The following weapons appear in the video game Mad Max:
Sawed-off double-barrel shotgun
The iconic sawn-off double-barrel shotgun appears used by Max in the opening sequence, but is stolen along with his V8 Interceptor by Scabrous Scrotus. Max then acquires a home-made shotgun that initially only holds one shell, but can be upgraded with more barrels to hold a max of 4. The double barrel, referred to as "Max's Iconic Shotgun", along with Max's Road Warrior jacket and the V8 Interceptor, is then unlocked as a reward for beating the story and can replace the homemade shotgun in Max's arsenal. It has the highest damage and fastest reload, but only holds 2 shells, while the homemade shotgun can hold up to 4. Pinkeye briefly wields an extremely weathered sawed-off double barrel with a shell holder on top of the barrels when confronting Stank Gum, but does not use it.
Gutgash has what appears to be a home-made bolt action rifle slung across his back.
Webley & Scott No. 3 Mk 1 flare gun
The Webley & Scott No. 3 Mk 1 flare gun is a tool that can be used to call for Chumbucket and the Magnum Opus. It is also used during certain missions to mark points of interests.
After losing his double barrel to Scrotus and being left for dead, Max conveniently finds this homemade shotgun buried in the sand nearby.
Homemade Sniper Rifle
After acquiring the necessary trigger mechanism, Chumbucket builds this collapsible sniper rifle for Max. "Leadslingers" (snipers) also wield similar sniper rifles throughout the game world.
Another weapon constructed by Chumbucket for Max is the "Thunderpoon"---a homemade RPG-style rocket launcher.
Unknown Webley Revolver
Scrotus carries an unknown model of Webley revolver in a shoulder holster, but it is never used or referenced throughout the game.
Stank Gum's Crossbow
Unlike the homemade crossbows used by other Wastelanders, Stank Gum's crossbow appears to be a purpose-designed model made prior to the end of civilization.
TM-41 Anti-Tank Mine
At least one mine field can be found and cleared in every region of the Wasteland except the Outer Graves. The mines, whether by intent or pure coincidence, strongly resemble oversized WWII-era Soviet TM-41 anti-tank mines.
GE M134 Minigun
A GE M134 Minigun appears as defensive armament on the wrecked War Rig in the North Tunnel where Max acquires the final magazine upgrade for the sniper rifle.
History Relic Weapons
These weapons are seen on collectable History Relics and unattainable for use in the game.
One of the decal options for the Magnum Opus features two crossed Flintlock Pistols on the roof.
