The Ferals have an active weapons contract with House Lapin, and obtain most, if not all, their weaponry from them. Thanks to the complexity and rarity of Literomantic weapons, only Barbarossa and Foxx themselves have these sorts of weapons out of their teams. Barbarossa is equipped with a Colt Python revolver with the enchantment Hollywood Magazine placed on the hammer. Barbarossa does not need to reload when in combat with this enchantment. Foxx's literomantic weapon is unknown to the public at large. House Lapin has recently developed a new model of bullpup assault rifle in 2022. This armament was not in production in time for the events of the Third Word War, but saw production beginning in late December 2022. This weapon is scheduled to replace the older model of bullpup assault rifle for the Ferals sometime in 2023.
