The AL-9, prior to upgrades, is a somewhat handy weapon to wield during the first chapters of the game, or when playing on Classic mode. The Pulse Rifle upper tool deals moderate damage, at the same time offering adequate stopping power to keep Necromorphs at bay, while its high (for that point) magazine capacity allows for prolonged firing. Upon completing the game, it is recommended to upgrade the Rifle with +3CLP and/or +3SPD Circuits that also offers +3DMG to further augment its role as a support light machinegun.
When enemies gets in too close for comfort, the lower Hydraulic Eviscerator can be utilized to quickly dispatch attackers within melee range. Fitted with +3SPD and +3DMG Circuits, the Eviscerator becomes a lightning-fast razor-sharp cutter that lets the player plow through hordes of Necromorphs as if they were grass.

- The Tau Volantis Survival Kit claims to include the Marauder Pack, but the Marauder Pack make no statement about being contained in the Survival kit. Every other pack in the Survival Kit say in the description "This pack is included with the Tau Volantis Survival Kit". However, it is, in fact, included.
