How to unlock new guns in The Callisto Protocol

Collect them all!

There are a number of weapons in The Callisto Protocol, but getting them can be difficult without exploring all the optional areas of the game. Jacob will get weapons automatically while playing through the game, but some require some extra work to obtain. For every weapon that players pick up, that weapon's ammo will start to drop from enemies or can be found while exploring. This is how to unlock each weapon in The Callisto Protocol.

How to unlock every weapon in The Callisto Protocol

At the start of The Callisto Protocol, Jacob will start off with nothing to use until he gets his hands on a shiv and a long hammer. It won't be long until players can start adding things to their arsenal and struggling to determine which weapon they should start upgrading first, however. Some weapons are given over time, but there are three weapons that can only be obtained after finding their schematics and then bringing them to the Forge. This will take up inventory space but will be turned into the Forge for purchase permanently once delivered, costing some Callisto Credits to make.

Every weapon uses its own ammo type and uses its own upgrades, so if a weapon doesn't impress, it might be best to leave it unpurchased. This is how to unlock each weapon:

  • Stun Baton - This will automatically be unlocked in the Outbreak chapter of the game.
  • Hand Cannon - The ability to purchase this will be unlocked during the Aftermath chapter of the game and is the only weapon that needs to be purchased but doesn't require a schematic.
  • GRP - This is automatically unlocked in the chapter, Aftermath.
  • Skunk Gun - Requires a Schematic found in the Habitat chapter in the Botanical Gardens.
  • Riot Gun - Automatically given to Jacob in the chapter, Lost.
  • Tactical Pistol - Requires a Schematic found in the Below chapter before finding the first Forge.
  • Assault Rifle - Requires a Schematic found in the Colony chapter in a bathroom by the General Store.
