"It's generally held that Raijin is the pinnacle of Zilla Zaibatsu's conventional weapons tech prior to Chi weapons."
—In-game description.

The Raijin is a gauss rifle appearing in Shadow Warrior 2.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Drops from TL-Devourer boss during mission Corporate Shill.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Raijin is a sniper rifle. Nuff said. Zoom, powerful shot, shallow ammo pool. Use accordingly. Elemental affinities help, as does explosive ammo mod.

For a dedicated sniper, Raijin and Springchester, modded into different elements and fitted with explosive ammo mods can carry the player all the way to the end-game. Just don`t forget to pack something with area effect or some dakka to deal with minor enemies. For distractions like Ratverine or Dynomite, Raijin is both inconvenient and an overkill.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapons name refers to Raijin (雷神) a god of lightning, thunder and storms in the Shinto religion and in Japanese mythology.
