Returnal Best Weapon

Returnal Best Weapon

The best weapon title in Ruturnal goes to Atropian Blade & Pyroshell Caster depending on how you look at it. Atropian Blade being a vital tool to breaks shields and other barriers is the defacto melee weapon of the game. But the best-ranged weapon is Pyroshell Caster. With unlimited ammo chamber and grenade shells, there is no other weapon that comes close to this. Hollowseeker is a good weapon but you have to fire continuously to deal any meaningful damage. But with constant dodge and high attacks from the bosses prevents this gun from being on our top list.
