The gun is a type of weapon that both the Huntress and Ranger use. Guns can be classified into mainly 3 different types, namely machine guns, flame-spitters and shotguns. Each type of gun has its own unique distinguishing property from other guns, which will be further discussed below. Even though two guns may be of the same type, their name might not be the same, as is the general rule for all weapons in Dungeon Defenders.

Automatic Guns

The unique property of automatic guns is that they generally have the highest rate of fire of any weapon in the game. In exchange for the high rate of fire, some machine guns will have lower base attack damage. This does not mean that they will not have a lowered amount of additional bonuses. Generally automatic guns can only fire 1 projectile at a time.

The unique property of blunderbuss is the high base damage. This high base damage makes up for the slower rate of fire. Blunderbuss weapons do have elemental bonuses, as do all other weapons in the game. Generally, these weapons can only fire 1 projectile at a time. All blunderbuss weapons have the distinguishable short barrel "sawn-off" look to them.

Beast-Guns are those which are constructed from the remains of the powerful beasts of Etheria. These guns exploit the unique features of the beast and allow the huntress to use them to the best of her ability. Currently there are two Beast-Guns; the Dragon Cannon and the Scorpion Gun. Both weapons typically have a multi-shot ability which can be upgraded.
