By targeting the legs of an opponent, you will have a much easier time applying a Sharpshooter.

The move will also be more effective since it's being applied to a zone that has already sustained plenty of damage.

But before you can start punishing opponents with different weapons, you first need to know how and where to pick them up.

In WWE 2K23, weapons are located under the ring. So, you need to go to the outside of the ring.

Then, stand close to one of the sides of the ring.

The side you choose needs to be covered by a ring apron. If it's covered by a screen, you won't be able to pick the weapons.

Make your way to the middle of the ring apron, and press L1 on PlayStation or LB on Xbox.

Once you do that, a weapons menu will pop out, and you will use your left stick to navigate it.

Then, press X on PlayStation or A on Xbox to select the weapon.

To hit your opponent with the weapon you chose, simply press Square on PlayStation or X on Xbox.

Using weapons will allow you to perform plenty of new moves, and make the game more exciting.
