An interesting part of the upcoming "Gat out of Hell" expansion to Volition and Deep Silver's Saints Row IV
will be the "Seven Deadly Weapons" Johnny Gat will be getting his hands on in the upcoming DLC. Bursting into hell like an overly-excited bat returning home, Gat will be on a mission to save the leader of the 3rd Street Saints. Squaring off against the devil himself, it's only rather suiting that the deadly weaponry will be based on each of the seven deadly sins.
At long last, we get to take a look at each weapon in these newly released pieces of artwork along with the weapon's name, description of what it does, and its embodiment. Curiosity and excitement are thankfully not sins. Let's see what hell has in store for us:Armchair-A-GeddonThe embodiment of Sloth in the rifle slot - Take a seat and watch the mayhem explode with dual-miniguns and heat-seeking missiles.Gallows DodgerThe embodiment of Pride in the pistol slot - Hurl arcane balls of energy from this mysterious embodiment of murder, which doesn't hesitate to boast of his murderous history.Last SupperThe embodiment of Gluttony in the special weapons slot - Cover your enemies with hell-ish frosting and watch how hunger takes over the masses!Uriels EdgeThe embodiment of Envy in the melee slot - Slash, blast and disintegrate your enemies in a deadly ball of fire.Ark of the CovenantThe embodiment of Wrath in the explosive slot - Suck in the souls from your enemies and then launch them at the rest. It's a win-win.Boom ChickaThe embodiment of Lust in the shotgun slot - Nothing says come hither more than Boom Chicka, the sexiest gun in existence.Diamond StingThe embodiment of Greed in the SMG slot - This weapon propels wages at an incredible rate of fire, turning victims into a shower of wealth.
A new trailer has also been released that sums up all of the weapons descriptions and puts them into video form. Check it out and enjoy as Gat and his fellow Saint, Kinzie, unleash each of the seven weapons on the poor demonic suckers of hell. We even get to see Gat standing up tall to the towering horror that is Satan himself.
A set of screens continue to showcase the deliciously deadly weapons as well as a few enemies, too. There is a small dose of happiness in this set, however, as the 3rd Street Saints have a birthday surprise for someone.
