The best weapons in BattleBit Remastered

If you judge BattleBit Remastered based on its graphical style alone, you might assume there’s little to no depth in this shooter. That couldn’t be further from the truth. While it may look like a game from the early days of 3D graphics, the gunplay and mechanics are as modern as the latest Battlefield or Call of Duty entry. With that comes a massive roster of weapons across various types, each with its own stats and uses.

Despite the game still technically being in early access, nearly 40 weapons are available to unlock and take into the field. Even the most dedicated players will find that number intimidating when trying to nail down which one is best, so we’ve thrown ourselves into the trenches of BattleBit Remastered to figure out which weapons you should take out on your next mission.

AK-15

It was a tough call which gun to put first, but we give the edge to the AK-15 in BattleBit. For an assault rifle, having 40 damage is massive, and the fire rate of 540 will drop targets in no time if you can keep line up your shot. When you begin tweaking it with attachments, the AK-15 can basically serve any purpose, from short, medium, and even long-range encounters. Unlock the AK-15 by hitting rank 15.

M4A1

The M4A1 with all its stats and graphs.

Our runner-up is the old reliable M4A1. While it does have a much higher fire rate than the AK-15 at 700, its accuracy is worse and only deals 30 damage. Unless you’re able to compensate yourself, odds are you will need to use your attachments to mitigate this gun’s downsides to make it great as opposed to improving what it does great like our first pick. You have access to the M4A1 by default.

MP7

Examining the MP7

Switching over to the SMG class for our Medic friends out there, the current meta is basically unanimous in crowning the MP7 the best in its class. Yes, it is an SMG so it will only do 25 damage, but the fire rate of 950 is only where things start to get good. Its accuracy rating of 74 is among the best there is, plus has an actually decently sized clip size. It obviously does its best work in close-range encounters, but the MP7 can hold its own in a midrange fight too. You have access to the MP7 by default.

FAL

The FAL has a lot going for it, and in many ways stands toe-to-toe with the AK-15. Both deal 40 damage, while the FAL sacrifices its accuracy to 75 in exchange for a faster fire rate of 650. It’s one you will need to weigh its pros and cons for but is a good replacement for the M4A1. What keeps it this low, however, is that you only unlock the FAL once you hit rank 140.

AK-74

Looking at the ak74's stats in Battlebit.
SgtOkiDoki

The AK-47, or 74 rather, might have a higher number than the AK-15, but sadly can’t measure up. That doesn’t make it a bad gun, though. It edges out the M4A1 in damage by a single point, as well as the FAL’s accuracy by one point as well. Despite that, the kick and recoil on this gun get out of control fast, making it hard to use if you’re not using controlled bursts. It can serve the same purposes as most assault rifles, but only really shines in shorter-ranged battles. You have access to the AK-74 by default.

M200

We had to give all you sniper fans out there some love, and the M200 is one well worth scoping out. While there are no completely overpowered guns in BattleBit, this sniper comes as close in the right hands. You’ll deal a huge 70 damage per shot, with headshots being instant kills, but with the obvious drawbacks that come with a bolt-action weapon. The accuracy, as expected, is maxed out, which makes this weapon’s lethality completely dependent on the person holding it. If you’re able to line up your shots, manage the downtime between firing, and stay at range, this could easily be the best gun. We slot it here simply due to it being so skill dependent, as well as requiring you to hit rank 100 to unlock.

The best accessories in Rise of the Ronin

Following in the footsteps of the Nioh games, Team Ninja's Rise of the Ronin is absolutely bursting at the seams with loot. Between mission rewards, materials in the open world, drops from enemies, and loot from treasure chests, you will be managing your gear very often to keep your character as strong as possible. Aside from your two weapons and armor slots, you begin with a single Accessory item to equip. These are more unique items that fall into certain categories that focus on buffing specific stats or aspects of your character. Picking the right one, or multiple once you unlock additional slots, really ties your build together. Here are a few of the best Accessories to keep an eye out for while exploring Japan.
Best Accessories
While each Accessory is unique, there are only a few "types" that have variations in terms of their main effect's potency and what secondary bonuses they offer. The examples we list mainly focus on that primary stat, so even after you find one, you may encounter one of the same type later with a better version of that effect. Also, all stats stack. If you have multiple slots and want to really buff one specific thing, slot in multiple of the same Accessory type.
Talismanic Arrow

The Talismanic Arrow's main buff is related to how much Karma you gain for everything you do in Rise of the Ronin. Because Karma is cashed in for skill points, it goes without saying that you will want to build up as much as possible. Early versions will give you low percentage increases, but when you consider how much Karam you get all the time, it adds up fast. The extra perks that come with it are less important but may end up helping your build as well.

The best skills in Rise of the Ronin

While you do pick a starting class of sorts in Rise of the Ronin, that doesn't lock you out of using any of the game's numerous weapons or abilities. That initial choice simply determines your starting stats and skills, and you can still freely mold your ronin's proficiencies with as much detail as you can their appearance. Previous Team Ninja games have had some less-than-friendly UIs for their leveling system, and while it is much better here, it is still quite overwhelming. You have multiple branches of skills spread across the four main categories, plus most skills can be leveled up more than once. If you're ready to learn the ways of the samurai, enter our dojo to learn which skills are the best.
The best skills in Rise of the Ronin
Skills are broken down into the Strength, Dexterity, Charm, and Intellect branches. Some skills just require normal skill points, while others must be unlocked using that section's specific skill points.
Best Intellect skills

A major part of the time period of Rise of the Ronin involves the introduction of outside influences on Japan, with firearms being one of the biggest disruptors. Along with your katanas and bows, handguns and rifles can be equipped and used in fights. The Handgun Critical Hit gives you a second option when you deplete an enemy's ki 9basically a stamina and stagger bar). Instead of doing a powerful melee attack with whatever weapon you have, you can pull the left trigger to deal an even stronger finishing move with your pistol. It's flashy and deadly.

Dr Disrespect dropped from his game studio following Twitch allegations

Game developer Midnight Society cut its ties with Guy Beahm, a popular video game content creator who goes by the name Dr Disrespect, following allegations surrounding a 2020 Twitch ban.

In 2020, streaming platform Twitch banned Dr Disrespect shortly after announcing a lucrative new deal with him but didn't comment on why. While Dr Disrespect continued to stream on YouTube over the past four years, on June 21, former Twitch employee Cody Conners claimed on X (formerly Twitter) that Twitch banned Dr Disrespect because he "got caught sexting a minor in the then existing Twitch whispers product." Beahm responded, "I didn’t do anything wrong, all this has been probed and settled, nothing illegal, no wrongdoing was found, and I was paid."
