BALROG-I is a high caliber pistol that fires 10 rounds of .50AE AHE bullets that were both developed at the Aegis Institute, based on the AMT AutoMag V. It is equipped with the Balrog Charging System that enables BALROG-I to fire an explosive shot via a grenade launcher that explodes upon impact. Although the Balrog Charging System of the BALROG-I has to be done manually, the weapon makes up for it by inflicting an afterburn effect towards targeted enemies.

- It is advisable for the user to not move when firing the BALROG-I as the weapon has unstable accuracy.
- BALROG-I is useful when surrounded by a horde of zombies. The user is advised to switch to B mode, aim for the ground and shoot when trapped by a large group of zombies.
- BALROG-I is equipped with the Balrog Charging System. It inflicts an afterburn effect to all zombies within the explosive range. This effect will kill any remaining zombies that survived the initial blast.
- The afterburn effect can also be used to wear down the health points of mini zombie bosses.
- B mode is a very good way to earn money and level grinding.
- BALROG-I should be used for camping purposes as it can be slightly inaccurate when running away from zombies.
- Use the weapon's Balrog Charging System to wear out the health points of a zombie and prevent them from healing. The afterburn effect deals 30 damage per second for 10 seconds.
- BALROG-I afterburn effect can be used to reveal the light zombie when it is half visible, making it easier for humans to attack it.
- BALROG-I afterburn effects also can be used for replacement of Holy Bomb or Firebomb to mark the light zombie when engaging melee combat.
- Use the secondary fire mode to knock away zombies in mid-air such as Light zombie and Sting Finger.
