There are 9 different weapon types in eRepublik, each one doing a different amount of damage. The amount of damage depends on your strength and your military rank, except with bazookas and rockets. There are formulas for working this out, but if you are like me and couldn’t be bothered actually doing all the sums and just want to know quickly what influence I will have with a certain weapon, I use a damage calculator
Although you don’t have to fight with weapons, the advantage is that you will rank up quicker and this also gives you an energy bar bonus afterwards. 10% of the damage you do per hit is used to calculate your rank gain per hit
This is the cheapest weapon available. Good for new players to use to boost their rank and knowledge of the game. Has only one use per weapon and does the 2nd least amount of damage (behind only fighting bare hands)
A versatile weapon, cheap and effective for new players to gain rank. Although more expensive than a Q1 weapon, they do slightly more damage. This weapon type has 2 uses per weapon
A low range weapon that is a modest price while doing modest damage. This is used by militaries and militias alike for cheap supply. Also used by coming of age new players who have gained knowledge of the game. This weapon type has 3 uses per weapon.
A medium hitting weapon. This weapon is used by mostly younger players when a Q5 isn’t available for use. It has only medium damage and is also a fairly cheap price range. This weapon has 4 uses per weapon
The lowest of tanks. This weapon gives you the the lowest damage you can do with a tank. It will give you twice the damage per hit if you used no weapon. This is the preferred choice for most younger players. New players should be able to afford this weapon regularly. This weapon has 5 uses per weapon
This is the mid range tank. This weapon gives you fairly heavy damage (2.2 times what you would hit with no weapon, so is a perfect choice if you are wanting to do great damage for a great price. New players may need to save up a little bit of currency to buy some of these tanks. It has 6 uses per weapon
The tank of tanks. This weapon is the prefered choice for high and medium ranked players. It deals a good deal more damage than a Q6 and a significant amount more than using no weapon at all (3 times more) Good for players wanting to deal the maximum amount of damage in a battle. Also good for players going for Battle Hero medals and an excellent way to rank up quickly.
The bazooka is a special weapon that kills your enemy with one hit. It cannot be bought, sold nor donated. Bazooka can be acquired by collecting bazooka parts from battlefield or by completing the daily order of your millitary unit. Sometimes bazooka parts are sold as Limited Time offers for 0.9 gold each. Citizens are required to have at least 150 strength in order to assemble a bazooka.
In order to create a bazooka, you need 5 different parts.
The 5 seperate parts needed to make a bazooka
Once you have at least one of each you can assemble the bazooka in your storage.
Bazookas can be used just like normal weapons: you go to battlefield and you’ll see your bazooka at the weapon slot by default.
Features of bazooka
Since bazooka is a special weapon it also has some special features. When you use a bazooka your enemy will be killed with one hit. Every hit will deal exactly 10,000 points of influence and you will be rewarded with 1000 rank points.
Bazooka also has a durability of three strikes which means you can kill three enemies with one bazooka and thus deal 30,000 points of influence.
Bazooka Booster in storage
Bazookas also have personal Damage Booster also known as a Bazooka Booster. Sometimes bazooka booster is sold as Limited Time Offer. Bazooka boosters allows you to inflict more damage depending on your division:
20000 — 1st division

40000 — 3rd division
50000 — 4th division
