Weapons and The Black Market

After completing the early missions for Santos, you may buy items on the black market. As you destroy enemy installations, kill generals, save citizens from harassment, open crates, etc., you earn contraband items of varying black market value. Your contraband balance should add up quickly if you're keeping busy with the dynamite and RDX. If you have some spare time and want to build you account up, take over a rooftop anti-aircraft gun and blow up some blimps for a while.

Where do all these Zeppelins come from, and why are they attracted to AA fire?

As you progress in the story new items will become available. Some perks also unlock black market items. (Don't forget to use the Luck of the Irish and St. Paddy's Day Upgrades to unlock one silver and one gold perk if you're having trouble.) Black market vendors will not sell to you if the Nazis are chasing you. New locations to buy open up as you progress through the game, so look for the blue pistol icon in new areas.

Watch for the Resistance's symbol to find their locations.

It takes a while to unlock the best weapons, but you start off with some decent gear: a throwable grenade, dynamite, Kruger and Silenced Pistols, MP40 SMG and MP44 MG, Double Shotgun and Trenchgun, and Hunting and Carbine Rifles. The silenced pistol is very handy for stealth work, and even though you can't buy a sniper rifle until later, you can pick one up from dead snipers, often found atop sniper towers around the city. When you begin the Buried Secrets mission, check with the arms dealer on the way out of the church as he has some new kit for you: the Raum Pistol, Steiner Rifle and Scoped Carbine. After the Whisper and Roar mission you unlock the Tommy Machine Gun, Siegfaust rocket launcher, and Scoped Steiner Rifle. You unlock the Bridge Killer kit after the Rolling Thunder mission, and the Viper SMG silenced SMG after South of the Seine. The Terror MP60 and Terror Shotgun arrive after Boiling Point, and the MP60 has the biggest capacity of any of the automatic weapons so it comes in handy for the fighting-heavy missions to come. After C'est Ici L'Empire De La Mort you unlock the Terror Flamethrower.

Certain Perks unlock other weapons:
Angel of Death: Executioner Pistol
War of Terror: .44 Pistol
Mad Bomber: RDX
Block Buster: Super RDX
Longshot: Terror Sniper Rifle
Paint The Town Red: Panzershrek
