PostSubject: Most underated/overated guns   Sun Oct 02, 2011 10:38 pm

Ok so some weapons are obviously more useful than others, but some are overlooked by alot of players when they are actually quite useful. On the over hand some jus pitiful and IMO are in serious need of a buff.

UNDERATED: Snub Pistol. Has the ability to down with under a full clip, hot bullets easy to load quickly, accurate at long range. Ok the other pistol pick up are better for certain situations but i feel alot of players totally overlook this great gun.

Overated: Digger. Yeah I get kills with it but 3 Shots! Come on it's so easy to avoid and moves super slow. Feels it needs a buff in either ammo count up to 5 or faster projectile speed.

Am I right?

I never see anyone using a Scorcher so I'd say that's underrated.

I feel the Boomshot is overrated. It's not nearly as easy to kill someone with it as it should be with a friggen giant rocket launcher. Quite hard to aim at distance and you have to score a direct hit.

hey chaz, i agree with you there unless you are useing a Active Reloaded shot then you can shoot the ground close to them but it still has to be fairly close to them. I also feel that the Oneshot has been overrated, its only three shots online, and the scope is zoomed in wayyy to much for close up action. Plus the laser makes it fairly easy to dodge aswell.

and the sound of it pointing at or near you also gives it away

The digger is only good if the person you're shooting at doesn't know you are shooting at them and if they arent moving. I only use it on maps that have places to hide if I know an enemy is hiding.

I think I have only had 1 or 2 MP kills with the digger so it is not really my favorite because it is fairly easy to dodge just like OP said. I had an awesome night last night using the boomer on KoTH. Every shot was a kill and that never happens when I have that thing. I never see people using the mulcher really unless it is KOTH on Thrashball, but that is the only time I have really seen it used online.

I would have to agree that the scorcher is a underrated, I have only just started using it. And I only use it because I want the execution. The digger is pretty dope though, for it to be one of the most easy to dodge weapons. As long as its in the hands of the right person(My Hands) then its guaranteed to get a few kills.

@MrELitE the scorchers execution is bad ass bro, and i use it all the time if im the last man out in TD because it makes it easy to down multiple enemys in rapid succestion to win a match ^.^

Overrated: Sawed off. I say this because it's among the most used weapons in the game, and it's very average. People use it in terrible situations and lose map control for doing so. Yes, it can kill someone in an instant, but only if you can close the distance, and players are already adjusting and not taking corners so tightly. You try charting into ADS gnasher fire or even lancer fire, and you're going to die before you get there too often. All this and you also lose any kill capacity at close range for 5 seconds after firing once.

Underrated: Lancer. Despite its usage, I see it used to little. The weapon can kill easily at almost any range and can full-auto down people from the overlook on sandbar or across the entire map on thrashball. At close ranges it is the best AR to hipfire (easily controllable and lethal) and has the best blind-fire from cover. The chainsaw is only good if people don't know you're there, but oh well. Just gun them down. Concentrated fire from more than 1 player using this is beyond devastating. The hammerburst doesn't have enough dps to justifiy single fire and the retro needs to be bursted (IE terrible dps) beyond very short ranges...but the lancer is always good. When I pick up power weapons these days, it's my shotgun I throw down.

Well it's been my internet handle for many years now so I don't like to switch names across forums. Irony was part of the deal though Smile.

Same. I've got, What, 5 Shotgun kills in total in Multiplayer. And that's due to being pinned down with no other weapons to use.

Gnasher isn't bad in a lot of situations. Its 1 shot range is worse than sos but it can 2 shot at impressive distances, especially with an active. Combined with cover it can lay down more hurt w/o retaliation in a lot of situations. The lancer is still a generally better all-purpose weapon but gnasher definitely has its place in GoW 3.

overrated - SOS... ive started opinions and feelings before.. its OP but not so OP its ruining the game..

underrated - one shot.. its a heavy weapon, has a start up time before it can be fired, leaves you vunerable while aiming and has a very visible targeting marker but its a sniper rifle on pcp with instant kill across the map power. no other gun can do this. plus you earn trash talk points lol Wink
