Resident Evil Village: WCX vs Dragoon

Resident Evil Village players can get their hands on plenty of guns to help defeat enemies. With limited inventory space, however, it’s important to choose the right weapons for the job. So, which the best assault rifle in RE8? Here’s the need-to-know in a WCX vs Dragoon comparison to decide the best automatic firearm in RE Village.

Is the WCX or Dragoon better in RE8?

Resident Evil Village WCX vs Dragoon

The WCX is better than the Dragoon, making it the best assault rifle in Resident Evil Village.

In terms of base stats, the Dragoon is actually superior in almost every way. Problem is, the Dragoon full-auto AR is not upgradable in RE Village. Once players invest their Lei into purchasing a few upgrades for the WCX, the scales begin to tip drastically in that gun’s favor.

After purchasing all of the WCX upgrades to reach Level 6, this AR beats the (initially stronger) Dragoon hands down. A fully upgraded WCX is one of the most powerful weapons in Resident Evil 8. It boasts greater firepower, ammo capacity, and reload speed while also featuring two attachment slots.

Although it might take a while for the investment to pay off, getting the WCX is preferable to the Dragoon in Resident Evil Village. The most powerful automatic rifle in RE8 is the WCX, providing that players use their in-game currency to upgrade it.

The “Village of Shadows” mode doesn’t just make enemies tougher and reduce the player health pool, though. Here’s a full rundown of what changes in the hardest mode.

After beating Village of Shadows — preferably while wielding the powerful WCX assault rifle — players might wonder if there’s more story content to come. In that case, get the latest on Resident Evil 8 DLC plans.
