A variety of weapons are available for the player in Red Dead Revolver. Combat is a core gameplay element. The player starts with a basic pistol, then receives stronger weapons as the game progresses.
Many weapons in Red Dead Revolver can be upgraded to improve their performance. Upgrades may be given as a reward for completing a chapter.
At the beginning of some chapters, the player is allowed to choose a set of weapons from their inventory for use in that chapter including one side arm, one long arm, and one thrown weapon.
As weapons are used, their performance decreases. The player can repair weapons to bring them back to full performance by paying for repairs in the shop at the beginning of a chapter.
