Army Carbine

The Army Carbine is one of the weapons in the game Bastion.


High-damage ranged weapon with heavy recoil. Accuracy increases the longer the attack button is held down. Can be fired from the hip but is inaccurate at all but point-blank range. A Power Shot can be performed if the attack button is released half-way to full accuracy; this shot is more powerful and almost as accurate as a full-length shot.

Weapon Pick Lines[]

  • Cael Hammer: A hammer and an Army Carbine. When I was a fighting man, I used the very same.
  • Fang Repeater: Figure it's a good time to put his two favourite firearms to the test.
  • Breaker's Bow: Best not let them get too close if you only got a bow and a carbine.
  • War Machete: Machete and carbine still go well together just like in the War.
  • Scrap Musket: No more fooling around, time to roll out the big guns and get this over with.
  • Dueling Pistols: Now that's a lot of guns for just one Kid, but he can hold his own.
  • Brusher's Pike: Sometimes a Brusher's Pike just ain't enough. That's what the Carbine's for.
  • Fire Bellows: When one type of firepower ain't enough, there's always the carbine and the bellows.
  • Galleon Mortar: Kid ain't taking chances, takes all the firepower he can carry.
