The Harpoon Gun is a weapon that appears in Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. It is the underwater equivalent of the Bow.

It is one of four weapons that can be used underwater.

AppearanceEdit

The weapon is a steel, high-tech harpoon gun. It fires sharp spears that can put down underwater enemies slightly faster than the War Blade or Talon.

GameplayEdit

The Harpoon Gun is an optional, but effective, tool for disposing of swimming Raptoids or Leapers. Once fired, it shoots a metal spear through the water at high pressure. This results in the spear darting through the water faster than the Torpedo Launcher can fire.

It can kill most enemies underwater with two or more shots, but the aiming must be precise, as most enemies swim faster than the player. The player is likely to miss one or more times if they are not careful. This can drain ammo quite fast; however, like the Bow, spears can be recovered after they are fired. This compensates for its lack of ammo pickups.

If the spears hit the enemy, it will deal a great amount of damage and will stop them in their tracks. As far as ranged underwater weapons go, this is the better choice over the Torpedo Launcher, if the player is trying to kill an underwater enemy that is.

It is only found within "Lair of the Blind Ones." Afterwards, the player will not need it, as subsequent levels do not have many pools of water.

Ammo PickupsEdit

  • Weapon: Restocks six spears.
  • Spear Quiver: Restock five spears.

TriviaEdit

  • This is one of three weapons that allows the player to re-use fired ammunition. The other two weapons are the standard Bow and the Tek Bow.
  • The Harpoon gun was originally meant to be in Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion, but it was cut from the game as Turok 3 was rushed out the door by Acclaim Entertainment.
