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 of the game and you begin the game with it. It has the normal standard yellow beam which causes light damage to targets.

Charged-up shots will result in a stronger blast. When you find the X-Buster upgrade you will be able to charge up to the purple state and fire off two shots, one after the other, which will cause huge damage to targets.

This is the universal weapon of the game - no matter how strong the bosses are the X-Buster will be able to damage them and be defeated using this weapon.
The special weapons can only have their secondary fire mode used when X has the weapon-powerup upgrade and can charge his X-Buster until he glows purple.
Strike Chain Strike Chain Boss: Wire Sponge
The Strike Chain is gained once you defeat Wire Sponge. This weapon will fire off a small extended chain which will grab on to walls and items as well as causing damage to targets. X can grab onto a wall and drag himself towards it and can also retrieve items with this weapon.

The charged-up shot will fire out a longer and bigger chain to reach further objects.

Speed Burner Speed Burner Boss: Flame Stag
The Speed Burner is gained when you defeat Flame Stag. This weapon will fire out a large flame-ball which will scorch any targets it strikes.

The charged-up state is useful, as it will cause X to fly straight ahead a small distance while flaming red, so that any enemies he strikes will be destroyed. This can also be used to reach items normally out of reach or in a dangerous area.
