Added DiffLines:

* In the final minutes of Super Metroid, Samus' arm cannon has use of an upgrade labelled Hyper in the pause screen. Acquired by absorbing energy from the Baby Metroid while it briefly protects Samus from Mother Brain, the Hyper Beam enables Samus to damage MB, something her other weaponry cannot do.

* The HK417 from ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' fits this role, being a scoped semi-automatic rifle with less damage and a lower zoom level than a sniper rifle.

Added DiffLines:

* The Marksman Rifle from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', which has a higher rate of fire than the standard sniper rifle, but lacks the latter's zoon function. In the seventh-gen versions, it also had the advantage of allowing the player to move while aiming.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BioShock'' and ''VideoGame/BioShock2'' have a research camera. Taking enough pictures of an enemy grants you bonuses against that enemy type.
* ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' has the Fire Extinguisher, which normally puts out fires but can also very slowly kill people, and the Shock Paddles which can bring people back to life.

* [[KnifeNut Knife]]: Melee attack [[EmergencyWeapon used as a last resort]]. Sometimes, this is just a punch, kick and/or [[PistolWhipping swipe with another weapon's butt]], and an actual knife is upgraded to Chainsaw status. In order to compensate for its notorious uselessness, many newer games give it stealthy instant kills or encourage you to [[DieChairDie break stuff]] with it. Frequently it also has the ability to let you run faster while it is equipped, since you're not carrying anything heavy in your hand, and [[HyperspaceArsenal it's not like you're carrying anything else]]. Often used for CherryTapping.

*** [[PlasmaCannon Plasma Gun]]: Rapid fires orbs of energy that don't hit instantaneously. The lack of hitscan is made up for by the above-average DPS.

** As more and more games incorporate melee attacks using guns, this is quickly becoming [[DiscreditedTrope Discredited]], except where RuleOfCool is concerned. Knives still exist, but they often follow the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' standard by making them a quick-use item that you simply swing out with a button press in between shooting. Some knives get insta-kill abilities, or otherwise such high damage that quick players may forego guns almost entirely for stealth and a knife.

Some knives get insta-kill abilities, or otherwise such high damage that quick players may forego guns almost entirely for stealth and a knife.

* (Almost) every single gun in ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' not mentioned elsewhere on this page (and sometimes even those once fully upgraded). Suck up your enemies and use them as ammo, turn them into exploding sheep, turn them against each other with mind-altering slime, or force them to dance themselves to death? The choice is yours.

** [[AutomaticCrossbow Crossbow]]: Distinguished by a slower projectile, and usually requires the player to compensate by aiming higher. Could be quieter than standard guns, able to fire [[TrickArrow a variety of different bolts]] such as [[TechnicalPacifist non-lethal]] or elemental ones, and/or they could be more precise than guns. Also, you will almost never be able to recover ammo, and you have an abnormally high chance of wielding preposterously rare repeating crossbows. Longbows are reserved for a true {{Badass}}, usually with [[MagicalNativeAmerican Native American]] influences.

Added DiffLines:

*** To be honest however, the most literal fit for this category would be any Assault Rifle manufactured by Jakobs. This is due to the fact that every Jakobs gun is designed to be semi-auto, with high damage per shot.
*** Any Assault Rifle manufactured by Dahl will have the ability to burst-fire when scoped, allowing to be a proper fit as well.
