A weapon is a fighter’s best ally and its worst enemy - Shoot or be shot in this top-down shooting game, and enhance your weapons for better, faster kill rates. The weapon system in Cantina Royale is an integral part of both the gameplay and the metagame. While character progression provides players with a way to make their characters more defensive, weapons give players a chance to increase their damage.
There are 5 weapons currently in Cantina Royale, each belonging to a specific class, with more to be added consistently throughout the seasons.

Its short range makes it ideal for aggressive engagements, where players can quickly close the gap and unleash a devastating barrage on unsuspecting foes. The wide spread of the pellets increases the chances of hitting multiple targets or dealing significant damage to a single opponent.

With its high arc trajectory, this weapon can launch projectiles over obstacles and structures, making it a perfect choice for flushing out entrenched enemies or dealing area-of-effect damage to clustered foes. The explosive shells create a wide blast radius, inflicting substantial damage to any enemy. Strategic placement and timing are crucial when wielding the Mortar Gun, as skilled players can control the battlefield and disrupt enemy formations.

With its electrifying capabilities, the Tesla Gun electrifies the battlefield with unrelenting power and unleashes chaos upon anyone who dares to stand in its way.
Weapons in Cantina Royale have a star rating from 1 to 6 stars. By increasing the star rating of a weapon, you gain new bonuses for your weapon and improve it’s effectiveness. To increase a weapon’s star rating, players will need to fuse together 2 additional weapons of the same type, collection and star rating. The resulting fusing process will upgrade your desired weapon into the next star rating.
Each weapon can be upgraded up to level 20. Each level-up of the weapon increases the weapons damage. To upgrade a weapon, players have to acquire XP for each weapon by using it during matches. Weapon upgrading also requires shards to be spend, increasing in amount with each level.
The Weapon Forge is a new feature that allows players to acquire new weapons. It provides players with multiple types of generating new random weapons depending on the resources they have and what they want to spend.
New weapons are acquired in the Forge either by purchasing or by using your existing weapon coins. These weapon coins can be acquired in various places, like the Career Road, the Battle Pass, the Arena Royale as well as other rare events that will take place in Cantina Royale. Each coin can be used in the Forge in order to acquire a new random weapon.
The weapon forge provides players with multiple types of ways of acquiring new weapons like:
- A daily spin which gives players a random 1 or 2 star rank weapon every day for free
- An epic spin which provides players with a random 2,3 or 4 star rank weapon and it costs Gems
- An Arsenal-X spin which gives a random NFT weapon from the Arsenal-X collection and requires an Arsenal-X weapon coin (obtainable from Arena Royale Leaderboard)
Other time-limited and seasonal events will provide a chance for players to acquire new weapons and potentially focus on a specific weapon they choose.
