When RadioTimes.com spoke to High on Life art director Mikey Spano at the Gamescom 2022 conference, one of things we asked him about was the game's much-hyped talking guns. Just how many of them are there?


Spano explained: "So there's five talking guns. And then you have Knifey, so you have one talking melee. But there's different things you can do. Each one has three different fire modes. So like, with Kenny, he has the aim-down-sights, that's one of his modes and then he has a regular-fire shot, and the goop shot, and then the other guns all have different modes."

But which of the High on Life weapons is Spano's favourite?

He told us: "I love Knifey. Knifey is so good. But I'm a huge Tim Robinson fan, so I also really love Creature. He's the one who shoots little babies out - he's so funny to play with. But honestly, all the guns are really funny.

"We got JB Smoove as one of the guns. Betsy Sodaro does one of the guns. That gun is kind of like a bully to you when you play. It's pretty cool. You can play the game all the way with Kenny, if you want, to hear all this dialogue. You can play with Sweezy, different dialogue. It's like the whole game is meant to be replayed. So depending on which gun you use, you hear a lot of different stuff. It's pretty cool."
