Resident Evil Village is here and this Gothic experience provides even more scares, chases and frenetic encounters with monstrosities. As first-person combat plays a large role in your survival, finding all the various guns and weapon parts to upgrade them will be a necessity.

We've gathered the list of weapons and weapon parts in Resident Evil Village right here for your perusal. Just to be clear, we're only including weapons that you can find on an initial playthrough, not any potential extras unlocked through challenge modes or replays.

Before we begin: note that several Resident Evil Village weapons and upgrades are purchased from The Duke, the game's merchant. These items are not all available from when you first encounter him, you'll need to progress through the game to update his inventory.

Knife

A standard knife, you'll find it extremely early on in the game, before fighting your first enemy. It does very little damage but can be used to finish off weakened enemies without using up more ammo. It's also great for smashing open crates or Goats of Warding without using your gun. There's no way of upgrading it.
