Downhill Smash Weapons Guide
There are various weapons in Downhill Smash that you can equip your boulder with to make it more powerful and efficient at mowing down zombies and crashing through the obstacles that get in your way. Take a look at our weapons guide to find out everything you need to know about them.
All the weapons in Downhill Smash have a tier that determines the maximum level of the weapon itself. The tiers themselves are directly tied to the current level you are on which basically means you will only be able to unlock certain tier weapons at certain world levels. Keep in mind that not all weapons are included in a tier. The only ways in which you will be able to unlock weapons is by passing levels or by using coins or gems to buy them.
In order to get a new weapon, you need to go through the checkpoint where the new weapon is displayed. When you then return to the garage, that weapon will be available for use. Listed below are the weapons that are available in Downhill Smash.Chainsaw
