Favorite Weapon
 
Yeah, you know it! I just got legendary ranking on the Frenzy medal! God I love this Award Rifle. Who here likes it as much as I do?

ET Warrior 01-10-2006 02:28 AM

I'm going to mildly hijack this thread, so as to make it a real discussion, and it'll be about discussing your favorite weapon ya? Otherwise this thread is headed to nowhere-town.

zerted 01-10-2006 03:03 AM

Invisibility (a weapon?), then the sniper droid. Call me messed up, but I don't care. Those things are really good at getting units (AI and human) to stop following you. Award Pistol is a very good weapon.

Redtech 01-10-2006 05:39 AM

Yeah, the award pistol even has a scope (well, a functioning one, in FPV, almost every gun has a scope, but minimal zoom).

ParanoidAndroid 01-10-2006 06:09 AM

The award pistol is an excellent weapon. With it's zoom it's like a mini sniper rifle, and it can take down almost any unit in 1-2 shots (wookiee's take more of course) Plus almost every unit can take advantage of it unlike other award weapons.

The only downside is that, it uses ammo, so it sort of defeats the purpose of having an rechargable backup weapon, but who cares? The pistol is cool, and your usually dead before you manage to deplete all your ammo.

Anyway the award pistol is cool but my favorite weapon as of now is probably the wookiee bowcaster, that thing is like a shot gun mixed with a sniper rifle, and it's got double zoom as well. Not to mention the guy who carries it can live alot longer then a sniper. If only it had an award version...

Award pistol rules, but ive grown towards the grenade/radiation launcher type weapons.
its so funny on xbox live an' all,when you just hide behind cover launching mortars into the battlefield causing havok for the other team. It gives it a real cool feel.

Commander Obi-Wan 01-10-2006 11:25 AM

Blaster Rifle.....chaingun......shotgun.....

Justus 01-10-2006 02:05 PM

Award pistol, and award rifle.

PoiuyWired 01-10-2006 02:45 PM

the mortat types are not as for in BF2, in BF1 they were uber cool.

Award pistol is nice.

I wish they can increase the splash damage for the rockets.

Now how about a melee weapon for BF2, like vibro-shiv, or electro-staff??

pcd927 01-10-2006 07:30 PM

Either the blaster rifle or the shotgun. A headshot will take your enemy out instantly. But can't a sniper rifle take someone out in one headshot? Yes, but i find it to be way too hard, especially when they're running around.

MachineCult 01-11-2006 08:04 AM

Award Rifle.

Redtech 01-11-2006 12:58 PM

The sniper can instakill via headshots, but WHOOSH! Sonic and chums are whizzing past you in StormTrooper uniforms!

I would have preferred if the elite sniper was an instakill when charged up, but a lame rate of fire between charges, like a cross between the Jedi Outcast sniper rifle and the Quake 3 railgun.

I hate that sniper rifle, it's like a water pistol or something it's crap.

PoiuyWired 01-11-2006 03:26 PM

hmmm... well, sniper headshots don't instakill a full health wookiee.

Layjock 01-11-2006 06:23 PM

Yes! My jacked thread has flourished!

Anyway, I've been playing and I'm trying to gain Legendary in Regulator so I haven't been using the Award Rifle often. But since the topic's been changed, I'd have to say that my favorite weapon is the Award Pistol just because, like you said, it is awesome.

zerted 01-11-2006 09:45 PM

A sniper rifle headshot will kill any full health unit, including Jedi. Though, the award beam rifle doesn't seem to do head shots...

MachineCult 01-12-2006 06:41 AM

I've never seemed to be able to get the Award Beam rifle, i've had 20 or 30 headshots with the sniper rifle and not got it.

Were you killed before getting 20-30 headshots?

MachineCult 01-12-2006 01:40 PM

Of course not.

Commander Obi-Wan 01-12-2006 01:55 PM

Can't help you there. You should have got. Meh.

REDJOHNNYMIKE 01-13-2006 01:10 AM

Pistol/Rifle/Shotgun pretty much the standard, I wish there was an option however to trade the fusion cutter for pistol as an engineer, that would be a wicked combo for a character who has their own health and ammo;)

The Flechette is nice (I'm usually in to close quarters to pay attention to it's nuances, but either I group my shots well or it actually passes through multiple targets)
but I'd preffer something like a Jackhammer semi-auto shotgun for an award.

I've actually stopped using sniper altogether because of the stupid beam rifle :(

And most of all, I wish there was a dual chaingun award *starts salivating*

McCusto 01-13-2006 07:58 AM

Blaster Rifle, period.

PoiuyWired 01-13-2006 08:48 PM

I wish you can do damage with the fusion cutter at melee range, which is only reasonable...

Getting jammed by that thing is not fun.

jawathehutt 01-14-2006 08:46 PM

i like the award pistol
i got it using the jety which made it really easy
i also like the award rifle
and o course sabers

ghost hunter 01-30-2006 10:47 AM

:flamethro i like the arc caster it suits my playing style zomming around and shocking a few people at once

Yes...I gotta agree with you. Concerning that is the main reason why the Dark Trooper is one of my favourite units. It can strike many units at once. Especially on the Death Star.....

MachineCult 01-30-2006 12:39 PM

AI rarely manage to shoot you inbetween shocks so you can take down 3 or 4 people at once with no trouble.

I know that's why it's so helpful.

Nanda Keon 01-30-2006 03:33 PM

Is this vehicle weapons included?
if so my fave is droid gunship laser cannons

and if not my fave is chaingun

MachineCult 01-30-2006 04:19 PM

If we can include vehicle weapons then my favourite is the superfast explosive projectiles that the AT-TE fires.

Commander Obi-Wan 01-30-2006 08:05 PM

My favourite vehicle weapon, like Nanda Keon said, "droid gunship laser cannons."

MachineCult 01-30-2006 08:15 PM

I prefer the Spider Droids laser cannon, it's easier to use and you can kill groups of infantry with it, whereas in a droid gunship it's quite hard to actually keep the beams on a target long enough to destroy it.

The only problem with the Super Droid laser cannon is that it can't take down capital ships in space. In which, I do that was the droid gunship laser cannons.

me 2!

OMG I have the same problem! I've never been able to get the enhanced sniper rifle.... ever. I've gotten up to like 40 headshots in one life, gotten the "marksman" medal and switched weapons to only have the regular sniper rifle.

As for fav weapon... shotgun is probably my fav. I usually try to roll toward the enemy and blast him causing maximum damage and the thought of a droid running up to a clone and pumping him full of holes is just something that brings a smile to my face.


Wow that really sounds kind of twisted.

Arcane_Penguin 01-31-2006 03:46 AM

hmmm,

I like the Elite Rifle, and the Shotgun, Fusion Cutter ((You can kill droids with it, lol)) and the granade/radiation launcher

PoiuyWired 01-31-2006 03:34 PM

well, trust me the award sniper is not something effective.

MachineCult 01-31-2006 04:26 PM

I hear it isn't long range, if not then that kinda sucks.

existy 01-31-2006 04:28 PM

Blaster rifle, fer sure.

Rudolphski 01-31-2006 08:18 PM

I would say that my all time favorite weapon is the award shotgun and a close second would be the Bothan cloaking device / flamethrower.

Redtech 02-01-2006 08:45 AM

Award sniper is a mid/short range instakill rifle with a poor rate of fire and decent clip size. Start crying.
