The Firespitter is a short-range incendiary cannon capable of high blast damage.

How to obtain

Firespitters can be obtained from Heavy bandits. Take down the Heavy wielding it and it will be ready for use. Dervahl's champion also wields one in Into the Borderlands.


Fired from the hip and dealing varying levels of damage, this weapon comes with a 30-round magazine and fires primitive but powerful rockets that attach to a target and explode to great effect. Aloy can bring down a large number of machines before the magazine is spent and the weapon must be dropped, as it cannot be reloaded.


  • High blast damage.
  • Removes components with ease.
  • Large magazine (compared to the other explosive pickup weapon: the Disc Launcher).
  • Knocks over or staggers anything it hits.


  • Dangerous to the user in close quarters.
  • Ammunition can be rapidly depleted.
  • Inaccurate past medium range, as the rockets arc in flight.
  • Like all pickup weapons, it slows Aloy down while carrying it.


  • The Firespitter works like a handheld Hwacha.
