Mega Man XZ: The Maverick Hunters

Weapons Guide

X will gain a new weapon each time you defeat one of the eight bosses. Each weapon has its own special abilities and are certain bosses' weakness, some can also be used to retrieve certain items that are normally out of reach.

X-Buster X-Buster Gained from: N/A
The X-Buster is the standard weapon for X and you begin the game with it. Firing a normal shot is a small energy ball which causes a small amount of damage to enemies. When the X-Buster is charged up to its first level, a stronger green energy beam will fire out causing more damage to targets.

The second stage is a large blue beam that causes more damage. The third stage can only be reached when the weapon upgrade powerup is found. It fires off huge purple beams which cause maximum damage from the X-Buster.
The special weapons can only have their secondary fire mode used when X has the X-Buster upgrade so that he can charge his X-Buster until he glows purple.

The Fire Wave weapon is gained when Flame Mammoth is defeated. The weapon's primary fire is a short-range burst of fire which can smolder targets.

The charged up stage of the Fire Wave releases large flame walls which fly forward, striking any targets in the way.
