Adept Weapons are a feature of New Game+ in Horizon Zero Dawn. Adept Weapons have more potential than their regular versions in the normal game mode. Adept items replace their regular version in New Game+, and thus must be acquired in the same fashion: either purchased from merchants or acquired as rewards. Only weapons of the "Very Rare" category have Adept versions. Adept equipment can be carried over to another New Game+. Below you can see a chart with the full list of Adept Weapons available in Horizon Zero Dawn.
