I have to say I prefer saber, but that that's because it's what I bought the game for (if I wanted guns I'd slit my throat...I mean play Quake 3...oh nevermind)

Sabers for me, as well. There's all kinds of FPS's out there with guns and stuff. Guns can be fun, but it's the sabers that set this game apart. No other FPS game has ever included swordplay of any type in with combos and various moves. Most just have a handheld melee weapon of some sort like a knife or a crowbar that has a single hacking hit.

guns, but only if the gun you are using can't be blocked by sabers (most people arent fast enough to push)

Sabers, almost all the time. The only time I don't use a saber is for far range

I'd have to say sabers. I don't soley use sabers though, I play with the guns in CTF. I don't use the saber in CTF, only in dueling and sabers only FFA.
But in spite of this, sabering is a vital part of this game. Without it, it would be like Q3A.

The saber's what makes JK2 worth playing, despite the things people usually complain about. Pretty much unique.

sabers...
but since i usually play ffa, and never actually thought that it was cheap using guns and force so much until recently, i usually play as if i'm some shadowtrooper (if that's what they do cuz i haven't completed the game). i use force a lot for jumping and when able, lightning and grip/throw. then i see guns to blast them. i only use saber to deflect or in some fights. but those fights usually attract a lot of people to have a mass saber fight there then then i cna't play properly cause my saber isn't good to actually plan my moves with so many people. i end up either using force or switching to a gun to blast them away.:D

Gunz! They rule, i know that saberist can be extremal good at deflecting, but not if they dont know where you are. I like hiding in the bushes on the Massassi Temple level and using the Disrupter to blast them. I only use saber when i am sneeking up on someone to backstab them, Literly.

Try Rune. Great game.

I have a stupid way of picking which weapon I choose. REAL stupid. I decide by what skin I use. For instance the Vader model looks pretty dumb toting a Bryar. So I use a saber. Boba Fett looks pretty dumb with a light saber. See where I'm going with this? But choosing which skin to use is a completly random process I couldn't possibly explain.

Yah, I wish someone would finish that mod to make it more team based - but I love that style, it's so fun. :)

I like sabers the most. But I do like to have a gun every now and then. :D

I'd say guns, if the sniper rifle wasn't so poor. It's depressingly bad. Someone care to tell me how a gun that fires light can have such bad recoil??? There no satifaction in using it.

And the fact you can't block it annoys me more than words can say. Ok, make it hard to block, but not impossible. Grrrr.

saber, considering i only play in saber only servers. I like guns though, however...the guns in this game arent the coolest.

but you needed level 3 sight to dodge scoped shots
