How to Get Warden Crossbow

The Warden Crossbow is probably the most important weapon in The Evil Within 2. You can acquire it fairly early on in the game, during Chapter 3 in Residential Area, after you find your first safe (O’ Neal’s) house. From this safe house, go to the southwestern part of the Residential Area, toward the end of the street. Near the end of it, close to the crossroad, behind a white Humvee, on the box, is the Warden Crossbow. It comes with one Shock Bolt, which you should probably save and not waste on the nearby pool made of hydrant water.

Sawed-Off Shotgun in Evil Within 2

The Sawed-Off Shotgun is found inside a house in the central Residential Area. This is where you arrive at the start of the game, during Chapter 3.

The address is 322 Cedar Ave. There is a fallen Mobius operative with 5 handgun bullets in front of it. Go inside the house, find a shaft that leads to the basement, and use the PC in that room to get to the Marrow: Armory and beyond. In the next area, go toward the other end, pass the couple of doors, and crouch to go through the tunnel. In the final room, there is a locked door with a wall console that you can operate in order to unlock the entrance by adjusting the amplitude and frequency of the sound. Behind this locked door is the armory, with the Sawed-Off Shotgun.

When you kill them, they’ll drop a fuel tank. So, kill two of them and pick up the tanks. All you need to do then is find a workbench, and fix the Broken Flamethrower.
