The Bolas Gun is a weapon that appears in Dead Space 3. The weapon must be built at a Bench after finding the blueprint.


A dual bolas gun that fires bouncing bolas and anchored bolas that stick to surfaces and spin for a few seconds. The bouncing bolas are capable of cutting off both arms/legs at the same time if timed/aimed correctly. Since the bolas bounce once, even if you miss it still has a chance of bouncing off the wall and hitting a necromorph. The anchored bolas is very useful for crowd control, you can lay a few anchored bolas down to cover a certain angle and focus on taking out necromorphs charging at you from the uncovered angle. 


The blueprint for this weapon can be found during Chapter 8.
