G1 Blaster electro-scrambler.
Meg's cannon, the Schoomer, and the My First Blaster because its utterly hilarious.
ooh, good question. I like the stranger weapons that don't get a lot of play or are typically just depicted as zap zap pew pew weapons... like Doublecross has a rust rife... and someone else does, as well, but I can't remember whom. Cyclonus has an "oxidizing laser," so I guess that amounts to the same thing. Love that idea... think of a human scientist making like an ebola virus gun or something. It's horrific. Prowl and Scattershot have acid "pellet" guns (I think "pellet" is probably a stand in for "bullet"). In a similar vein, Highbrow has acid rainmaker rifles. Like, WTF? Totally cool.
The wiki has a section devoted to G1 weapons (some of which are dumb because they're listed for GI Joe or Star Trek crossovers, but ignore that). There is some wild stuff... one of the Battlechargers has a "friction rifle," which increases friction of the slightest movement... so basically you just spontaneously combust. Love the imagination applied to avoid having just another ordinary gun. Check out Skullcruncher's "demolecularization gun." Like, if they have that kind of ordinance, why doesn't EVERYONE carry that?

I'd say the same about Starscream's or Blaster's guns. They're all robots. Fighting mostly other robots. These two carry weapons that are, by their description, an automatic "I win" button against other robots. :X
Optimus Prime's Energon Axe.
When I played WFC as a kid I saw this as Prime's definitive weapon. Although it isn't seen much and rarely makes appearances.
Oh god, I'm old.
The game is almost ten years old. That shows how fast time goes by.
Get off my lawn, you whippersnapper.
every decepticon arms micron, because they're weapons that turn into cute little baby animals. what's not to love about that?
No one's going to mention the most badass Transformer weapon of them all?
It is of course, Wheelie's Slingshot!
Well, it manger to hurt Grimlock, so yeah, I guess it's up there.
In G1 my favorite is Shockwave in alt mode he should have been used at least 1 or 2 times by some other Combiners after Bruticus, just as Megatron with Starscrem and Soundwave. Then I like also powerful Galvatron cannon and Optimus rifle and a mention for acid cannon of G1 Mixmaster in cement-mixer mode,as a child I found it amusing.
In no particular order:
Optimus crimes(no thats not a mistake) Ion blaster. That thing is supposed to tear apart the enemy molecule by molecule. We are talking about a sadistic as fuck weapon and they gave it to the good guy....
Megatron: A pistol from hell, that can link to a black hole and level an entire city block in one shot....Bonus points for the scope, so you wont miss.
Metroplex's anti-matter guns: Massive scraper sized guns, that shoot antimatter beams. In short order you are screwed and you just dont know it yet.
Except if you are:
Trypticon: And you neutralise everyone elses weapon with that funny nose mounted ray of yours.
And then use your reflector field, or whatever its called and throw everything in a distance of 2kms away.
Starscreams null rays: Emp blasts in a robot war. Nuff said.
Rodimus photon eliminator: Just for the eliminator in the name.
yeah, I was always fascinated by Metroplex's antimatter rifles. Like, talk about weapons of mass destruction. I always figured they were mostly just there as a threat more than anything to be normally used.
Brother, you're talking to someone who grew up on Cybertron and Armada, and occasionally RID, my favorite weapons are supermodes and plot convenience. Though I can't say I'm not partial to swords, especially Vector Prime's, or to Megatron's fusion canon with my love of the caracter. Though if I had to go on one absolutely concrete thing... the machine gun Whirl has in his holomatter avatar for purely comedic purposes I guess? Actually scratch that, my favorite weapon is Rung, hands down.
Crack Calibre Laser-Blazer Broadsword
All day everyday!
you really have that much favor for a slingshot? that any other weapon is merely for naught?
Fortress Maximus' Master Sword, because it's a, well, freaking giant sword, and it's also relevant to the Headmaster plot.
