There are six legendary weapons in Aliens: Colonial Marines that you can find.
In this guide, I’ll run you through the locations of each legendary weapon sorted by the chapter that you’ll find them in.
Note that these aren’t necessarily the best weapons in the game since they can’t be upgraded. You’ll be able to customize other weapons to be better than these, however they can give you a nice boost at least for a while, especially early in the game.
Legendary Weapon Locations
Hicks’ Shotgun – Located in Level 1
When you are exploring the Gravity Well with O’Neal, once you reach the top floor you’ll be attacked by some aliens. Before heading to O’Neal after you kill them, search the rooms nearby to find Hick’s Shotgun, and some armor that will help you defend O’Neal when you reach him.
Gorman’s Pistol – Located in Level 4
You’ll reach a door that you have to cut open when you’re searching the tunnels with O’Neal. O’Neal will wait next to the door for you to cut it. While he is waiting for you, look to the left of him for a path that leads to some stairs. You’ll find Gorman’s Pistol on a table near the stairs.
Hudson’s Pulse Rifle – Located in Level 5
After you go up the elevator to reach O’Neal and get your weapons back, look in the offices nearby and you’ll find Hudson’s Pulse Rifle on the floor in one of the offices.
Vasquez’s Smartgun – Located in Level 6
Near the end of the level, you’ll be tasked to retrieve some enemy personnel. Shortly after, you’ll fight some soldiers outside. In the next building, look for some stairs and go down to the lower level. Go through the door and you’ll find Vasquez’s Smartgun in the corner.
Vasquez’s Pistol – Located in Level 9
When you enter Hadley’s Hope, go left and you’ll find a room with Vasquez’s Pistol, and a piece of armor.
Frost’s Flamethrower – Located in Level 10
When you are sent on a mission to destroy the third AA gun, you will find a container that has a rocket launcher to help you destroy the AA gun. Inside of this container, you’ll also find Frost’s Flamethrower.
