Part of the fun (or frustration), with pre-ordering a game is seeing how many different retailer-exclusive bonuses crop up to entice players. GameStop and Amazon seek to entice gamers who pre-order with them by offering some swanky new weapons.

GameStop, the video game retail giant, is giving early adopters of Dead Space 3 a nifty weapon for use in-game called the EG-900 SMG. Issued by the EarthGov, the submachine gun promises spit out a quick barrage at the offending hordes of Necromorphs.

Amazon offers an alternative approach to getting rid of enemies with a weapon called the Enervator, a "humane" tool that causes, "instantaneous electrocution and molecular destabilization".

No matter how you slice it, both of these weapons sound pretty cool to use. You can check out the EG-900 in the video below, as well as pictures of the two bonus weapons. Dead Space 3 will be released on February 5th, 2013, so you'll have a few months to decide which weapon is more your style.
