To be, or not to be, that is a serious question.
Although this article is based on official information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.


The Arachnoid chaingun is a rapid-firing automatic weapon wielded by Arachnoids.

Overview[edit | edit source]

This chaingun is the primary weapon used by all types Arachnoids that appear in the Serious Sam games. It is highly accurate and can deal rapid damage to the target. The weapon has impressive range, accuracy, and low spread, allowing the Arachnoid to fire at an enemy from a distance without missing, even on a moving target. Chainguns are fitted with a techno-magical ammunition replenisher, which gives the gun unlimited ammunition.

The chaingun is used by both juvenile and adult Arachnoids in Serious Sam 1 and the HD and VR remakes, and Hatchling Arachnoids in Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE. In Serious Sam 3, the chaingun used by the hatchlings will overheat if fired for a period of time, which gives the Arachnoid a slight delay before being able to fire again. Adult Arachnoids use a slightly different variation of the chaingun, which are built into their pincers. When they spot a target, they will open their pincers and fire the chainguns simultaneously.

The player cannot pick up or use the chaingun, as it is not scripted to be used by the player.
