Wrench’s Fact: Weapons 101

While you are browsing through your inventory and the armory to search for the perfect killing device to help you destroy zombies and dust your enemies, have you ever wondered what all the specialized weapons actually mean? Here’s a short guide to help you choose the most powerful weapon that is suitable for your needs and expertise.

EMD Weapon Closeup

There are two types of ammos you can purchase: missile and energy. The higher the tier of the weapon, the more damage it can make on the zombies and your opponents. Be sure to let your guns cool down so it doesn’t overheat or overload.

Missile-based Weaponry

These are your heavy duty guns that fire sharp missiles or powerful cannons. These are great choices if you are dealing with opponents of a lower level and weaker zombies. Ammos are much more affordable but the damage is still severe.

Energy-based Weaponry

Highly specialized weapons that run on energy ammos and can instantly turn zombies into dust! This extremely deadly category includes 3 types of energy – flames, lightning, and ice. Harnessing power from natural sources, this weapon can vaporize your enemies and even toughest zombies almost instantly!

Happy Thanksgiving, Zombie Dusters!

If you are still alive after your zombie raid the other day, that is already something to be thankful for in Eat My Dust. Next time you log into Eat My Dust, be sure to load up your weapons with powerful ammos to prepare for the next zombie attack! You will definitely be grateful for that, when you are surrounded by zombies and you are running low on ammos. Be sure to stock up and have an amazing Thanksgiving holiday, dusting enemies and destroying zombies!

The Great Debate: Power v. Speed

One of the major conundrums all Racers must face is what kind of weapons would make their car the most dangerous and powerful car in all of Eat My Dust, a car that would help either the Dragons or the Scorpions win once and for all. There is a debate between the power of the weapon versus the speed the weapon can repeatedly fire.

Armory

A powerful weapon, such as one that inflicts 50 damage, is a weapon that does not require as much ammo and can dispatch distance enemies with ease. The best weapon is the weapon that you only have to fire once, as it has been said. However, most of these powerful weapons have a trade-off: it can take one to two seconds for the weapon to cool down before the next shot. During that time, an enemy Racer or one of the Zombies can attack your car and kill the Racer while they are wasting precious battle seconds for their weapon to cool down. While the best kind of weapon is the one you only have to fire once, that does not always work if the Racer does not even have a chance to fire the weapon.

On the other side of things is the speedy weapon, one that can partake in rapid fire. With cool down times half of what the more powerful weapons have, Racers can launch a full-out attack on enemies and can win before the enemy even has a chance to wait for their powerful weapon to reload. It also gives more flexibility to the Racer if they happen to miss their target. However, a speedy weapon’s use is also contingent on a large stash of ammo; while a Racer may overwhelm their enemy with the rapidity of fire, it also costs a lot more coins to keep the ammo stocked and ready.

Of course, the speed versus power debate can be resolved by buying a higher tier weapon, such as the Tier 4 Shark Missile or a Tier 3 Lightning Gun, which can inflict both 50 damage and have a reload time of only half of a second. Of course, these higher power weapons can only be bought with a higher rank or with Turbo Bucks, so be sure to keep playing Eat My Dust.

Barring a super-powered high-tier weapon, which kind of weapon do you prefer: the powerful weapon or the speedy weapon?

War of the Weapons!

As if the rivalry between the Dragons and Scorpions could get any more intense, we’ve decided to add in some new team weapons to the mix! Whether you’re representing the Dragons or the Scorpions, these incredible items are exclusive to your team and your team only. That way you’ll always have a little edge up on the competition around Eat My Dust.

Which side are you on, racer?

With Dragons being the ferocious fire breathers that they are, it only made sense to equip their drivers with a fun new flame thrower. The heat from this wild weapon can be hard to handle, so take our advice and do your best to remain out of shooting range! But never fear, Scorpions… we’ve got you covered too! With the Poison Dart Gun by your side, your stinger will pierce past any obstacle that stands in your way.

And if you ask us, these weapons are bound to give you something to brag about, so hit the road and drive straight for the Armory! After a few test shots, we want to know what you think of this latest EMD update.
