Electronic Arts is gearing up for the launch of Anthem, its new shared-world role-playing game (RPG) headed to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PCs. Embarking on a quest to slay creatures threatening humanity, players will suit up in weaponized Javelin suits, upgrading their loadout along the way.
While your exosuit is essential for battle, every great freelancer packs powerful firearms. And as a loot-driven shooter, improving your gear is key to success. We've rounded up every weapon confirmed for Anthem so far, as spotted in pre-release footage.
- Anthem assault rifles
- Anthem pistols
- Anthem light machine guns
- Anthem sniper rifles
- Anthem shotguns
- Anthem autocannons
- Anthem grenade launchers

Anthem light machine guns (LMGs)
Anthem's beastly LMGs are a signature pairing with the Colossus Javelin. Stock up on bullets, you're in for a wild ride.
Anthem sniper rifles
Taking the time to line up shots always fosters rewards. Snipers deliver a clean, hard-hitting kill, while still distancing yourself from the action.
- Wyvern Blitz
When combat gets up close and personal, Anthem's shotguns deliver the final blow.
Wielded exclusively by the Colossus, autocannons ensure maximum carnage.
Anthem grenade launchers
BioWare has also confirmed grenade launchers will feature in Anthem as a heavy-duty tool for the Colossus. However, few launchers are yet to be formally sighted.
Anthem miscellaneous weapons
Anthem pre-release footage has also briefly teased other unannounced weapons. Despite catching a glimpse of their names, it's unclear how these are categorized.
- Avenging Herald
- Jarra's Wrath
As new weapons surface leading up to launch, expect regular updates to this list. In the meantime, Anthem is slated for a February 22, 2019, debut on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PCs. Preorders are now live at select retailers, priced at $60.
