Post 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?

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.

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.

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


I am the definition of your defeat.

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...


Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?

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.

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??

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.

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.

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.

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

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?

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.

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*

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.

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.....

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

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

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.

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