There are three different versions of the gun for use in the game. (Only one version can be used at a time.)

  • Growler Ultimate No Recoil: adds infinite ammo and no recoil.
  • Growler Primary: changes weapon to Primary slot.

It can be unlocked at Wizard Island camp at Trust level 3 for 9,999 credits.

  • The bundle contains a mod that allows it to be unlocked earlier at Hot Springs or Lost Lake.
  • The Growler can now be reloaded. Growler Fill Ammo costs 99 credits at the camp where you bought it.
  • The bundle contains a mod that can optionally change the reticle.


  • It looks like an upgrade of "Ol' Painless", the minigun carried by mercenary Blain Cooper (Jesse "The Body" Ventura) in the film Predator (1987).
    • Both The Growler and Ol' Painless are based on the GE M134 Minigun chambered in 7.62 NATO.
  • The Growler can be found on the top floor of the hotel near the Hot Springs, in the Surrounded challenge.
