Simple structure but deadly weapon when used right.
– Blueprint description


"Simple structure but deadly weapon when used right."

The Zip Gun is a ranged weapon / firearm--the first gun made craftable in the game.

It is rather slow compared to other weapons, but adequate against slower enemies like normal-mode Frenzied Giants in Bunker Alfa and larger enemies like Floater Bloaters and Toxic Abominations in resource zones, Bunker Alfa, etc. Zip Guns do 18 dmg at a speed of 0.8, or 14.4 DPS. IN other words its completely useless.

The Zip Gun, so long as it has at least one shot of durability remaining, may also be scrapped at the Recycler for a chance to extract Scrap Metal, Aluminium Bar, and Steel Bar after an hour.


Zip Guns may be taken from AI Survivors in resource zones, found in loot, or crafted.
