The Weapons of Lost Planet: Colonies


Among the more substantial additions Lost Planet: Colonies will have to offer when it ships this coming Tuesday for PC and Xbox 360 — like the Akrid Hunter mode, Akrid Egg Battle mode and cross-platform online play — there’ll also be a few smaller goodies that are sure to spice the gameplay up even more, such as an expanded arsenal of 10 powerful new weapons. From two new grenade types to the Laser Lance to Capcom’s personal favorite, the Pile Bunker, “a huge mechanical spike that is used to puncture and impale foes.” Tell me that doesn’t sound cool as shit!

Flip through the following gallery for renders of all the new weapons and screenshots showing how each performs in combat.
