    Prime has its goods and bads, and one of its bads (in my opinion) is the overuse of laser spam. They're just generic, boring, and overused in the show. One thing the movies did differently was use bullets.

    But what would you like? Bullets? Lasers? Or both?

    I say both. Add some actual variety to the dang weapons for once.

    Agreed. Lasers are cool and all, but sometimes you just need cold hard steel doing the job when super powered laser pointers can't.

    I want something that consistently does damage against non-Vehicons.

    But with Bullets it would get all stupid like in the G2 comic.

    I go with the option of them using Trees, they could also kill Green Lanterns.

    Lasers are good for burning and melting, while bullets are good for impact and shredding. I don't see why we can't have both.

    ehh that tree thing is irrelvant with killing transformers since the insecticon didn't even touch the tree :3 on topic I want both. Shoot lasers and bullets but for some odd ass reasons most cartoons shoot lasers. lasers make sense in prime though. making bullets take recourses lots of it while laser just need energy but lasers get boring very quick. This is why I miss skyquake and his gattling-gun :3

    Each does their own kind of damage.

    Yes. Anything. Something besides the same damn effect for every character regardless of size or power or damage. Arcee's slim, rifle-like guns should not make the same sound and produce the same muzzle flash as Bulkhead's giant, wide cannons. What is even the point of giving them different weapons if they all do the same thing?

    Both. Although I do wish they'd improve the laser sound effects.

    Agreed. With how many lengthy firefights there are, it does get boring hearing *pew pew* constantly.

    The tree joke mostly comes from Optimus Prime being knocked out by one in Convoy.

    Both.

    I think only Skyquake had bullets, and even those sounded like lasers. Variety please.
