    I asked this once before and thought it was kinda cool.

    When you play video games, is there a sort of weapon type/style/platform (fighters, tank, on foot) that you prefer the most?

    For me, I like sub-machine guns and/or assault rifles. I prefer those mainly because I like the rapid fire accuracey (or semi accurate). I like to get involved in close to medium range distances. Plus the sound effects are usually pretty neat.

    This doesnt have to be firearms or FPS specific by the way.

    Halo - Plasma/Brute weapons (Maily Plasma and Spike rifles)
    CoD4 (when I had it) - Shotguns and Rockets.

    Anything else I'm big on vehicles, and explosives.

    Im not one for long range combat, I much prefer mid to close range.

    I'll admit it.

    "Hello, my name is DevilzFan, I'm a sniper, and I have a problem."

    I love sniping. Just always been my thing in FPS. If not sniping, then I prefer a support position.

    For some reason I get panicked in close combat, and usually end up hitting the wrong keys on the keyboard :lol

    ON most games I'm partial to explosives- grenade/rocket launchers especially.


    But my all-time favorite weapon has to be the Electro-Driver from Painkiller. How can you not love a gun that shoots shurikens and lightning?!?!

    I've always been a bit partial to Assualt Rifles and Sniper Rifles. I usually work pretty well in a support position than just rushing in, guns blazing.

    If it is a first/3rd person shooter like CoD/Mercs. 2 I love me some heavy machine guns. On Bad Company I would almost always be a support. I'd occasionally try sniper but I can't hit crap when it moves. I swear I got the worst f'in aim as a sniper. let loose with a clip from a HMG and I can kill a lot of MFs.. Give me a sniper and you can practically stand still and I'd miss you.

    I'm sure some people who played BC/CoD4/etc can back that up as I kinda curse when I fire 6-7 shot from a sniper and miss each time. I can't handle a sniper rifle that is single shot one at a time. I need a 5-6 round clip to hit anything. Frankly I've sniped people more effectively with a HMG in CoD4 than an actual sniper rifle. I can still remember using the HMG on the level with the long street and the store on the side. I'd get in one of hte buildings where you see the entire street, hide behind a wall and manage to snipe the guys setting up in the other building with either only a red dot scope.

    I need the ammo because I lay heavily on the trigger. I'm part run into the fire fight and shoot at any enemy that moves and find a safe spot and snipe with HMG.

    One shot semi-auto guns, like the Carbine from Halo.

    I like to try and snipe, but I couldn't hit the broad side of a broad thing.

    That Assult Rifle from the first Halo, I could own so much alien butt with that thing it was almost the gamebreaker in my hands.

    But as for all time generic weapons, anything that shoots large exploding ammunition far distances is the best in my book.

    I like shotguns, pistols, and grenade launchers/explosives. Machine guns are probably my least favorite.

    Whenever a game would have them, I usually prefered to drive the small fast vehicules in games so that way I was kind of a "fast responce" dude. In games like BF2, I usually got hold of those fast buggies and would "paint" targets for my clan mates while they where in fighter jets or copters. Then most of the other times I would retake any flags that where taken from our base.

    In games like that though, I would say I prefer fighter jet type of vehicules the most but most of the times somebody else in a jet and I'd rather do something as opposed to waiting for the next jet to respawn.
