The descriptions and images below all detail how the weapon works in the game and are lifted from the inventory screen.
A Cornered Swede is worse than a razor.
The Makarov pistol, or MP for short, was present in every Vostok cosmonaut’s equipment kit, which makes it the first firearm to have gone into space.
A multipurpose weapon designed for crowd control, selective force, psychic, and chemical warfare. In other words, just what the doctor ordered.
This assault rifle was developed by a Soviet designer after World War II as a response to the German assault rifle and American semi-automatic carbine. High reliability and ease of maintenance make up for its low-shot grouping.
A reliable weapon that is included in the standard equipment of all Soviet cosmonauts.
A heavy pulse cannon that releases spheres of compressed electrified polymer. After being fired, each polymer projectile retains its shape due to its own electromagnetic field, then explodes upon reaching the target, releasing a large amount of potential energy and causing significant pinpoint damage.
Don’t be a menace to the West while drinking your yoghurt in the hood.
A devastating, powerful Railgun.
It slices, it dices, it chops the enemy to pieces!
Red rust on this axe’s butt is the only thing it has in common with a fox. It also bears a threatening message to the enemies of its owner.
The Zvezdochka may be slow, but it only needs to hit you once.
An improvised two-handed axe made of several welded pipes, its blades are crafted from sharpened sheets of metal. Can be upgraded into a full-fledged mace.
That is all of the Atomic Heart weapons in the game that you can find as you are journeying across the Atomic Heart map. For even more gameplay tips, read through our guides and tips on the game in our Atomic Heart walkthrough article.
Developer Mundfish has come under increasing scrutiny in recent weeks after it was alleged that the Russian government stands to gain financially from the release of Atomic Heart. This is due to the fact that investors involved in the financing of Mundfish include GEM Capital, an investment fund whose founder has ties to Gazprom and VTB Bank, both of which are majority-owned by the Russian state.
Mundfish is also partnering with VK (formerly Mail.RU) for the Russian release of Atomic Heart, evading sanctions on Steam – VK is also majority-owned by the Russian state through Gazprombank, and Mundfish’s CEO is a former Creative Director at Mail.RU.
With Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, many players are now choosing to boycott the game in protest and donate money to organisations like The Ukraine Crisis Appeal, International Rescue Committee, and the British Red Cross.
