    I've just dled/watched some demos of pros dueling each other in DM and noticed that they mostly use lightning/shock combination. Though they also use rocket, flak, mini and Link, but still most of the time they run with light/shock.

    What are your favorite weapons in this great game?

    Mine are (in the decreasing order):

    1)Shock Rifle
    2)Minigun
    3)Lightning Gun

    That's my "top 3" list. What about you?

    Shock Rifle is by far the most powerful weapon in this game. LG/SG is second.

    My personal fav is the hellbender weapon combination of twin beams and skymine combos :)

    1. Shockrifle
    2. Instagib Shockrifle
    3. Link Gun
    4. Flak Cannon Alt Fire
    5. Minigun
    6. Lightning Gun
    7. Sniper Rifle
    8. Rocket Launcher
    9. Bio Rifle
    10. Assault Rifles
    11. Shield Gun
    12. Spider Mines
    13. Grenade Launcher
    14. AVRiL
    15. Redeemer
    16. Ion Painter
    17. Target Painter
    18. Ball Launcher
    19. Translocator
    20. Any Vehicle or ONS turret weapon

    As you can tell...not a fan of ONS. Love my deathmatch more than anything, especially Instagib DM/TDM. I'd play Reg DM/TDM more if it weren't for so many whiners complaining about weapon usage.
    My opinion: Shut up and play the stupid game and don't bitch how others use their weapons.

    i'm more of a sneaky quick-reaction kind of guy, so this the list for me.

    if including super weapons, instagib shock, then redeemer

    1. flak cannon. (always get title: flak monkey.)
    2. minigun (versatile weapon. well balanced for far and near)
    3. rocket launcher (good gun for mid-range combat)
    4. shock rifle. (very good gun. i'm just not accurate enough to utilize it)

    I see a lot of people love rocket launcher. I personally hate it. Maybe becuase I dont play online with noobs on public players :D

    As I play with Masterful-Godlike bots its impossible to hit them with rocket L. They dodge ALL the rockets. On masterful, maybe you can, but on Godlike - no way to hit them. Thats why I like instant-hit weapons, like shock.

    I agree that Shock Rifle is one or even the most powerful of the UT04's arsenal.

    BTW guys, do you prefer Sniper Rifle or Lightning Gun? I like LG more, it just feels more powerful and easy to operate (it does 70 DMG over 60 SniperR does, but at slightly lower rate of fire) I am more accurate with LG, but what about you?

    The rocket launcher, though the link gun is handy and the sniper rifle is even better in the games where it's available. Two assault rifles can be a challenge.

    I know its lame, but I love killing people with the Bio-Rifle. Something about killing people with balls of ooze just makes me laugh.

    With Shield Gun you can unleash pretty morefull melee attacks and, more importantly, it it as a shield, if you are low on health or ammo. With some skill you can jump to the areas, where you cannot get with normal jumps.

    Bio Rifle is the most contradictory weapon in the Tournament. Yes, it looks lame and useless, but in reality a VERY powerful weapon. The slime it fires does A LOT of damage (especially when fully loaded with secondary fire). But you must be very accurate to actually hit ppl with it. The useful tactic is also while you retreat you can shoot this slime on the floor, so the one who persues you gets hit/killed/stops persution

    I love using the Flak Cannon! :)

    After that...perhaps the sniper rifle or chain gun.

    A person who truly knows what they are talking about. I also like to toss in the link gun from time to time.

    Flak Cannon
    Lightning Gun
    Link Gun
    Shock Rifle (I'm not as good with this gun as the ones above, otherwise, I'd it would be second or first choice).
