Weapons of Choice

Which of these weapons do you use in KotOR? Go as in depth as you want, down to stats and upgrades even. I myself love to use a blue double-bladed lightsaber and red if darkside.

I chose blaster if I had the verpine heavy rifle from Sulivan Tam(I know the name's misspelled). The HP of those weapons are equal to a lightsaber or better with upgrades. These are the only blasters worth using in KOTOR I.

Can you only get that blaster for the PC version of the game? I don't ever recall seeing one of those...

I protest! This poll is fixed; where is the "Ya mum" category? (Hehe, Q, feel like adding another 'household' item/weapon to your mod )

In any case I voted for the Lightsaber... Single and green has to be!

Well, lightsabers are of course the most powerfull, too bad they make you look like a chirstmas tree. For coolness/when I rp myself, I go with mines and nades.

So no throwing knives or shuruikins then? Oh yeah they are not a KOTOR weapon so never mind. But, my main weapon would be a double-bladed saber, orange I guess. I know, who wants an orange lightsaber, right? I just like them. (Not the orange in the game mind you, a real orange )

So that said I picked double-bladed.

I'd liek to say that I prefer swords, but blasters are more to my style. Too bad there are no shotguns in KOTOR. Shotguns are my weapon of choice.

I would've had a Ya Mum gun, but I decided that the barrel would be too large for an average person to hold.

Aye, shame; though perhaps there are a few miniature sized Ya Mum's out there to reduce size!

There are some cracking lines we can use Ya Mum for...

Double-bladed lightsaber or the sword which you get in one of the tombs, but there's this really powerful one, can't remember which one though...

Dual lightsabers. Twice the upgrades has more potential than anything you could do with a saberstaff.

Wasn't the Xbox's Yavin DLC discontinued? I don't think you can download that anymore...The Baragwin weapons there are crazy though.

Hmm... Guns/VBlades on Telos.

Then once a Jedi... Single Saber on My Consulars (Though I use Force powers mostly with the saber as a back-up), Double Saber on my Sentinels, Dual Sabers on my Guardians.

I'd say that it feels more appropriate using dual blades with a light side jedi and using a double blade with a dark jedi. The game isn't so hard that it really matters all too much which one you use anyway.

KOTOR shows a clear lightsaber bias, but because the ranged weapons suck in K1 I always use a vibroblade. In K2 I used Mandalorian Rippers and a Watchman blaster pimped out with Mandalorian chambers, power pulsators, and other stuff.


Regrets are for horseshoes and handbags.

The obvious choice for KOTOR is "Lightsaber", since K1 doesn't allow you to spam as many Jedi as you want. I usually keep Carth as my backup gunner, with Juhani or Bastila on the offense. I've also found that wielding a double-bladed lightsaber seems to be more or less effective than wielding 2 single blade (unless you take the time to boost the appropriate stats for both hands), in the end having a single bladed saber works just as well.

I use a single lightsaber most often, though on DS playthroughs I often use dual sabers. I always saw Revan as a Jar'Kai user, but I love playing LS with the classic single.
