Firearms (also known as Guns) are a type of weapon; a gameplay element featured in Dying Light.

In general, Firearms are initially rare in the early game, resulting them not expected to appear in abundance. While they are undeniably helpful, the sound of gunshots can easily attract infected, especially Virals. The firearms allow one to engage enemies from a distance without having to be up close and personal. Ammunition is a scarce resource, usually found in stores. Prior to the Enchanced Edition update, there are three types of firearms available in the default game with two variations each, excluding the shotgun which only has one variation. In The Following, three new types of firearms were added and the existing three types now includes new variants. Due to the man DLC's coming out Techland has made blueprint that changes the apperaence of the gun. Some of the DLCs include of White Death and Wild West.

Firearms can be found in key locations within the Slums of Harran and are nearly in abundance in Sector 0. They will begin to appear in stores for a very high price when one gets to a high enough level, usually at Level 15+ Survivor. Even when you finally do manage to find a gun, it is not very practical to use it outside as the gunshots will just attract more infected.
