HypergunLV11
The Hero with the ⚡10 Hypergun in 'Cluck of the Dark Side'.

Usage

Attacking enemies

First Appearance

Chicken Invaders (DOS Version)

Weapons are the main method of disposing enemies in the Chicken Invaders franchise. They were first introduced in Chicken Invaders (DOS Version). Each weapon is unique. They have unlimited ammo, but they also generate heat.

Obtaining

Weapons can be switched through collecting Gifts. They can give different weapons depending on their color. Certain weapons are not available from the beginning, and as such have to be unlocked. Those weapons are: Plasma Rifle, Vulcan Chaingun, and Utensil Poker. The Utensil Poker was always an unlockable, while the other two weapons are unlockables since Ultimate Omelette. Some weapons will also not appear ingame until a certain chapter is reached, which is the case if you don't have the Weapons Rush unlockable on.

List of Weapons

There are thirteen different weapons available in the latest episode.

Name Base Damage (⚡10) Debut Description
IonBlasterLV11
Ion Blaster
1000
Chicken Invaders (DOS Version)
(first appearance)
The Next Wave
(current version)
The Ion Blaster is a good all-purpose weapon with a fast re-fire rate and accelerating projectiles. Its main advantage is that it spreads out at higher power levels, allowing your ship to cover a wider area. It's difficult to deliver concentrated firepower with it unless you get really close to the enemy.
NeutronGunLV11
Neutron Gun
2100
The Next Wave
(first appearance)
Revenge of the Yolk
(current version)
The Neutron Gun can deliver more damage than other weapons, especially at high power levels. Primarily forward-facing, its main disadvantages are the average projectile speed and a slow re-fire rate.
LaserCannonLV11
Laser Cannon
1800
The Next Wave
(first appearance)
Revenge of the Yolk
(current version)
The Laser Cannon fires lightning-fast bolts of focused energy, instantly barbecuing any chickens that cross its path. Fire it manually make up for its reduced power. Range is sufficiently long for most purposes, but not unlimited. It can only shoot directly forward, although there is some spread available in higher power levels.
VulcanChaingunLV11
Vulcan Chaingun
480 (CI4/CI5)
500 (CI3)
Revenge of the Yolk
The Vulcan Chaingun fires multiple ultra-fast metal shards at an extremely fast rate. Unfortunately, each shard does minimal damage, but concentrated fire will quickly tear through anything in its path. Watch out for overheating, as manual fire won't help you much here.
LightningFryerLV11
Lightning Fryer
990
Revenge of the Yolk
An experimental weapon from the Deep Fried Chicken labs, the Lightning Fryer can deliver 1.21 gigawatts of pure energy directly to the nearest unfortunate foe. In higher power levels, multiple targets can be tracked independently. Throw auto-locking and a slow heating rate in the mix, and you've got yourself a "sure-fire" (ahem) hit.
PlasmaRifleLV11
Plasma Rifle
1400
Revenge of the Yolk
The Plasma Rifle is the Lightning Fryer's military-issue brother. It can deliver enormous amounts of damage to a single target at a time, and with an even wider range of auto-lock. Unfortunately, this weapon also generates heat rapidly, and frugal use is necessary in order to avoid overheating.
UtensilPokerLV11
Utensil Poker
2250
Revenge of the Yolk
The Utensil Poker is a highly experimental weapon, designed specifically for use against the chicken invaders. Just try it and see!
BoronRailgunLV12
Boron Railgun
600
Ultimate Omelette
The Boron Railgun accelerates superheated metalloid chunks faster than anything else. The re-fire rate actually speeds up with increasing power levels to provide additional damage. Projectiles travel extremely fast, but their spread is limited to strictly forward-only.
PhotonSwarm1
Photon Swarm
400
Ultimate Omelette
The Photon Swarm fires extremely high-intensity interweaving swarms of photons capable of covering a broad area. When supercharged, swarms glow red and provide a massive boost to firepower. This weapon is hard to control and quite underpowered at low firepower. To increase damage in these cases, fire the weapon manually.
PositronStreamLV11
Positron Stream
600
Ultimate Omelette
The Positron Stream, when non-powered, it provides the most damage than any other weapon. It's quickly superseded by other weapons as power increases, however. It locks onto the nearest enemy, but can only track one target at a time. Its focused power generates a lot of heat, so make sure you fire it in short bursts for maximum efficiency.
HypergunLV11
Hypergun
1050
Cluck of the Dark Side
The Hypergun is purely energy-based. It is capable of dynamically rotating its output vector to cover a wider area than the Boron Railgun, while still packing quite a punch. When output vectors converge, woe any poultry that will be caught in the crossfire.
RiddlerLV6
Riddler
560
Cluck of the Dark Side
The Riddler accelerates superheated metal shrapnel to near light speed. At low power levels, damage is diffused over a wide area, but becomes more focused as power level increases. As a bonus, this weapon generates very little heat, allowing you to fire it in long bursts.
CornShotgunLV11
Corn Shotgun
2400
Cluck of the Dark Side
The Corn Shotgun's power is devastating but reload rate is quite low, which can be substantially improved by firing manually. Individual corn pellets are capable of inflicting a lot of damage, but power distribution is somewhat uneven.
Moron Railgun
???
Universe
This is the “starter” edition of the Boron Railgun and it shows. Reduced damage and a hard power limiter make it only suitable for the complete newcomer. It's recommended to stop using this weapon once you find something better.

Legacy Weapons

These are older versions of the current weapons, which differ substantially in their design or power levels.
