The 935 Bonder Rivet Gun was a tool used by the Concordance Extraction Corporation employees in deep space mining operations. The second firing mode of the Rivet Gun was to charge up the power to shoot through more dense materials.
The Rivet Gun was designed to panel and attach bulkheads support, mainly when Arc Welders are unavailable. By using rail gun technology, the Rivet Gun fired high velocity rivets that could nail items to each other over long distances. The second firing mode of the Rivet Gun was to charge up the power to shoot through more dense materials. The Rivet Gun was the standard pistol that you always carried with you during the course of Dead Space: Extraction and you could never drop it. The 935 Bonder River Gun was a constant weapon and puzzle solver throughout the game, helping to rivet together barricades to stop the Necromorph attacks. Despite being the default weapon in the game, it was actually a respectable tool, able to dismember any part of basic Necromorphs with one shot and two for any Enhanced Necromorphs. The weapon's secondary fire was a charging burst that fired a more powerful rivet and was mostly used during the riveting puzzles. For gameplay reasons, it never ran out of ammo.
- Because the 935 Bonder Rivet Gun never actully ran out of ammo, it could be used if the players wanted to save up ammo for later fights.
- The rivets are quite powerful, even in the standard firing mode. One rivet could dismember a limb on almost any Necromorph (Two if it was the Enhanced form). It was also capable of destroying a human skull.
- The alternate fire took a few seconds to charge so it was not suggested to use in emergencies.
- Because of the small size of the rivets, it was not suggested to use the Rivet Gun against smaller or fast enemies.
