Army of Two Devs Share Their Favorite Custom Firearms

In a recent preview of Army of Two: The 40th Day, we revealed exciting details about the updated weapon customization system. To provide a deeper insight into the game’s extensive customization options, we interviewed the creative team behind the sequel. They shared their favorite custom weapons, shedding light on how the system caters to personal preferences. Read on to discover their top picks.

The Fury – Sarah Stewart, Line Producer

When you find yourself in a dire situation, wounded and crawling on the ground, wielding a two-handed weapon can be challenging. That’s why I prefer a pistol like the Fury. It may not be the prettiest, but it packs a punch. When the enemy is closing in, desperate to crush you, the Fury becomes your only trustworthy companion. It’s your lifeline when you need a reliable sidearm, offering the power and versatility to defend yourself in critical moments.

A Matching Pair – Benoit Richer, Lead Level Designer

In battle, never go alone, and never without a matching pair of automatic weapons. It’s great to have your partner by your side with a high-powered rifle, but you don’t want to show up wearing the same outfit. If your partner has customized their AK-47 to draw attention, you can enhance your TD-V with urban camouflage and a soda can silencer. While your comrade covertly eliminates enemies on the frontline, you can relax from a distance and take down foes with style, enjoying a martini in the shadows.

The Giraffe – Alex Hutchinson, Creative Director

Gamers can be divided into two groups: those who approach games strategically, meticulously completing each scenario, and those who prefer to kick down doors, unleash chaos, and revel in the aftermath. The new game caters to both playstyles, but this weapon is definitely for the latter group. An automatic shotgun alone is formidable, but why not make it embarrassing for your enemies too? Paint it with a giraffe pattern, or perhaps tiger stripes or leopard print. Add a 20-round clip, replace the stock, and attach a sharpened shotgun bayonet. This fearsome weapon, known as THE GIRAFFE, will make sure your enemies never forget you.

Fat Boy – Reid Schneider, Executive Producer

The QBZ assault rifle is good, but it becomes even better with an underslung grenade launcher. And when you add an underslung shotgun and a scope, it becomes the ultimate weapon. Pick off enemies from a distance with accuracy and precision using the scope, or switch to the grenade launcher if they get too close. The QBZ underslung with attachments is a versatile weapon suitable for any situation. If it were a drink, it would be beer – reliable and always there for you. Sometimes you need champagne or a cocktail, but beer is the classic choice.
