The Hades Rifle is a real beast of a gun, capable of firing extremely powerful rounds that can pierce through multiple enemies at a time, befitting for an Alpha-Class experiment like Hades, whoso happens to be the weapon's namesake. It is also a very accurate weapon, and has plenty of reach, as well. In addition, the massive recoil from firing such powerful rounds leads to a fairly low rate of fire.
It can be obtained from only one individual; Hades himself, after defeating him. The only place to get more ammunition for the weapon is at The Armory, which has ammo for every weapon found in the game, and is also the place where the N.U.K.E. is acquired. To unlock that level, you must obtain 100% completion.
When facing Hades in the 2nd phase of the battle, be sure to avoid getting shot by this weapon, for all the aforementioned reasons!
- It is similar in functionality to Zeus' rifle, which also pierces through multiple enemies at a time.
- Its animation model, as well as the Thing-Thing 4 version of the Zeus rifle's animation model, are modified from that of the FN FAL from Thing-Thing 3.
- If you fire the weapon and the projectile hits a wall, ceiling, or floor, you could actually see the bullet itself embedded in such, and not leaving a bullet hole.
