RAGE 2 settler pistol had fans excited when it was announced that the classic weapon from the first RAGE would return as a pre-order bonus.

Not only that, but players would also get Nicholas Raine armor so they could continue playing on in some sense as the hero from the first game. RAGE 2 released Tuesday after eight years since the original came out. The pre-order bonuses for the game have players searching the internet for clues.

Here's everything you need to know about the Settler Pistol and how to unlock it.

RAGE 2 Settler Pistol: How to Unlock it

To unlock the Settler Pistol, a player must have pre-ordered the game or purchased the deluxe or collector's edition of the game.

Next, players must complete the Cult of the Death God bonus mission also obtained from the above parameters. To do so, players must help John Marshall turn on the power and then the mission will be accessible.

After completing the mission, players will be rewarded with both the Settler Pistol and Nicholas Raine's armor. It's as easy as that.

RAGE 2 is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
