Hi @Naomi11

Your if statement is in the wrong spot.

If the currentWeapon is less than three, execute the following code in the buyWeapon function.

Also, your code is assigning currentWeapon a value of 3, rather then checking if it is less than 3.

Spotted some funky quotes which may cause the tests to fail.

Happy coding
