    I'm sure this poll will be interesting. Please post a decent reason why your weapon is the best, and how it defeats others.

    I went with a Shotgun personally. Its great for taking out large numbers of people in a short time, provided they are close. In maps such as Ivory Tower and Ascentian (however you spell it), this weapon flourishes due to short quarters. However in Coag and other large maps, its really a horrible choice.
    Oh, and shotgun almost always beets sword :p Just wait for the lunge and BAM!

    well what ever the big rocket launcher things that shot the green things out of them are really good. with a shot gun or sniper rifle. thats my opinion.

    noob combo. Plasma pistol + battle rifle. The pistol takes down their shield and the br finishes them off if one round hits them in the head. I've honestly never seen a decen player lose with this combo unless the entire other team abandoned killin anyone but him.

    twin plasma rifle. Not necessarily the best, but most effective in my case. Plus when they hit, the other user usually get's a bit "frozen up" and sort of makes it easier to kill them. Plus they look so cool =D

    I.R Shogun- wouldn't it be better to use a Plasma Pistol and SMG? If using a BR instead of an SMG, you would have to switch to get out the other gun. In that time an SMG could finish them off.
    Meteor- Twin Plasma Rifles are pretty sick, though I find a Plasma Rifle and SMG go better together and stack up damage quicker... *sigh* everyone underestimates the SMG.

    I hate the Battle Rifle...stupid 3shot burst pisses me off. That's why I pick the "silly" smg over the BR...continous ROF (rate of fire) is far more satisfying.

    In a subconcious manner...if you don't like a weapon, you'll be crapper at using it...well I find it to be true for me anyway :S

    Yea but you can't exactly sneak up, considering the mini-map indicates another place close by >_>

    the scarab gun isnt really a weapon, and you can only use it in single player on one map unless you have a mod.

    BR has a longer range I think is the main reason. Never was a big Halo guy, but my friends all are, and BR + plasma pistol was always their weapon of choice unless it was like snipers or something

    nope. it CAN be for chumps, though not necesarily. for instance, Shogun seems to have given his opinion here, implying that he plays it. do you consider him a chump? do you consider me a chump? what about firiath? im sure im missing a few but w/e
