Resistance 3 Dev Diary: Tools For Resistance

Gamescom has been amazing. However, something is still missing – an unyielding void in the soul of Resistance that needs to be filled. Something cold. Something unyielding. Something… Sledgehammery? Yes, that’s it! We need to show you the Sledgehammer, Resistance 3’s brutally blunt new melee weapon. Here – let me summon the video gods and see if they can whip something up for the latest R3 Dev Diary.

By George (or Rey), they’ve done it! Our all-new Resistance 3 Dev Diary features the first gameplay footage of Capeill’s intimate side – intimate as in he’s close enough to Grims to smash in their deformed faces with a giant Sledgehammer. It’s pretty wicked (except if you’re a Grim).

Plus, you will get a detailed look at the human guns at your disposal in the game. Just because they aren’t modified with some fancy alien technology doesn’t mean they won’t plow through the Chimera faster than Rainbow Dash can clear the skies of Ponyville. Go in-depth with the explosive nuances of the Magnum, the Carbine, and the Marksman, and a peek at their powerful upgrades for good measure. Because what’s better than shooting things? Shooting things – better!

Whether you’re stretching your trigger finger with the exotic weapons or getting your melee mash-fest on with the Sledgehammer, Resistance 3 offers you a feast of fiasco-enducing human weaponry. The good news is, you won’t have to wait long to get your hands on them either. The game comes out on September 9th, so be sure to pre-order now and garner exclusive bonus content. Also, for all the latest Resistance 3 information be sure to follow Insomniac‘s Twitter and Facebook.

So, my fellow Resistites – what weapon do you think you’ll be utilizing the most on your journey to New York? Sound off in the comments!

Already got the Steelbook Special Edition ordered thanks :)

I’ve usually used the Carbine the most, but I’m really gonna try the more exotic ones much more than usual now. Just gonna have fun. Have the Survivor Edition on pre-order.

^^ well for everyone


What is the section I keep seeing in these videos where the grims just seem to stand and get shot? Is it like a seperate mode or just something you devs can use xD

when will the beta open to public?

The beta is amazing the loadout has good skills the wepons is so good all with deadly abilities and the shooting is fare and easy for everyone, I love it. I have a few questions pls answer. 1) The beta reach lvl 20 quickly and open all upgrade for wepons and skills, this is happened because is beta? what we doing to the others lvl? 2)how many lvl has, i see 400000000 xp 3)there’s more wepons and skills or all is available on beta?


Believe it or not, the Carbine is actually one of my favorites so I’m glad they kept it in.. I like it because it feels more like the default military rifle instead of the more exotic weapons, eventhough those are Insomniac’s trademark..

is amazing
