How to get Dying Light 2 Weapons

Weapons in Dying Light 2 work a little differently from its predecessor. Enemies will rarely if at all drop any gear on the ground. You can find weapons lying around the environment, near the dumpsters, or in abandoned buildings. In addition, you can always buy yourself weapons for money at various traders inside the game's many camps. Some gear is also obtained by completing specific missions. You cannot craft weapons like you could in the first Dying Light game.
