Weapon, grenade, and gadget locations in Crackdown 3

Get your Agent armed to the teeth by finding and unlocking all weapons, gadgets, and grenades in Crackdown 3.


Don’t go knocking on TerraNova’s door with empty hands, bring the boom by unlocking and finding the biggest and baddest weapons, grenades, and gadgets in Crackdown 3. A lot of the weapons are easy to find, but a few of them must be collected from specific locations in New Providence.

How to unlock new weapons and grenades

Unlocking all the weapons, grenades and gadgets in Crackdown 3 requires one of three things, either find the weapon in the world, level up a skill to unlock it, or take it off an enemy. Leveling up a skill is easy, and you’ll simply have the weapon or grenade given to you, but some of these can be tricky to locate out there on the streets. Check out our guide on how to level up skills quickly in Crackdown 3 so you can get those late-game weapons sooner.

To actually unlock a weapon or grenade, you will need to pick it up. Once it’s in your hands, it will be added to your armory and you can either swap back to your preferred weapon or keep using it. Some weapons are found by killing enemies and picking it up, while others are only accessed by the triangular weapon supply crates.

These weapon supply crates are located around the streets wherever the bad guys can be found. Whenever you find a prisoner hardpoint, a monorail station, or one of the various industry locations, search for a weapon supply crate to see if it has a new weapon for you to use.


There are two dozen weapons to unlock and find in Crackdown 3 and while a few are tied to leveling up skills, a lot of them are hidden away waiting to be found. Find any that might be missing from your armory before you try to take down TerraNova’s leader.
