    One of each weapon type is available in the DLC, 15 in total, and can be obtained from either chopping off the arm of a regular enemy, boss or completing all necessary challenges associated with the multipliers in the test chamber setup area.

    Pattern 20XX Infantry Rifle - Totem Wolf boss
    Pattern 30XX Infantry Rifle - Totem Wolf boss
    Golden Infantry Rifle - Lactose Tolerant challenge modifier

    Tamahaac - Totem Wolf boss and regular enemies
    Tamahaac DX - Totem Wolf boss
    Golden War Axe - Complete all top row challenge modifiers

    RIP (Rest in Pieces) - Undertaker boss or regular enemies
    RIP Special Edition - Undertaker boss
    RIGP (Rest in Gold Pieces) - Complete all third row challenge modifiers

    B0-W1E Twin Blades - La Muerte boss
    B0-W1E Twin Blades Deluxe Edition - La Muerte boss
    Golden Twin Blades - Arms Race challenge modifier

    Grim Ravager - La Muerte boss, Undertaker boss or regular enemies
    Grim Marauder - La Muerte boss or Undertaker boss
    Golden Marauder - Combo Maker challenge modifier

    For the upgraded boss weapons (second in each category) I would recommend turning on as many multipliers as possible to have a greater chance of obtaining the desired weapon.

    Sin Ogaris I had a hell of a time getting the RIP Special Edition and the Twin Blades Deluxe Edition. I was running through the episodes with the final four modifiers on for very high v2 gear and every single time the boss was carrying the Grim Marauder, regardless of which boss it was. I did about five runs of each with this happening.

    I eventually switched the modifiers to just the first four selected and first try I got the twin blades DE and rip SE from their respective bosses, so if you have the same issues as I did, maybe adjust your modifiers.

    Dizyne I managed to get each weapon on my 1st attempt with the 1st mod turned on in the 1st row, 2nd mod turned on in 2nd row, 2nd mod turned on in the 3rd row, and the 1st mod on the 4th row. Only had to replay a couple of times to get the other weapons. Smashed through this in about 30 minutes.
