Pulse Cannons, and I don't mean the ACV type, I mean those good old 1000-1200 Damage models in AC2-AC4A. They had enough Damage per Shot to one or two-shot most basic enemies, enough Damage per Second to wear down anything tough and topped it all off nicely by having enough ammo to last all but the longest missions.

Almost all the ps1-ps2 large rockets and napalm rockets, yeah these where fun. EG-0703 from acfa huge close range dps and high shield piercing could make slower enemies freak out a bit if used right. Howitzers of any sort from acvd pretty much can act as ranged piles, can shot over low cover, can hit multiple targets and have stupid ammo whats not to love.

I have three: Karasawa, Moonlight and the Grenade launcher.

I like lots of other weapons, but those three take the cake by being some of the best weapons around up through SL. Although the 800 ammo MG was really nasty too.
Anything can be solved with the proper application of explosives

Mine would be the linear cannon from AC3. It was the AC3 equivalent to AC5 and ACVD's gigacannon, somewhat. But mind telling us yours?

For me, its a toss up between AC:NX Linear Weapon Arms and AC2 grenade weapon arms.

So much damage in no time flat.

Things I have learned about FromCheng recently from other people:

1. Cheng is a Fraud
2. Somehow Cheng makes money off the site
3. Somehow Cheng is grabbing for power from his own site
4. Cheng enjoys pouring salt into his own eyes
5. Cheng was somehow jealous over a tourney getting more traffic...on his own site...
6. Cheng has lackeys that don't ever play armored core
7. Cheng is a so called/wanna be community leader, even though he has never called himself one
8. Cheng is not part of the ACTUAL armored core community

9. Cheng has no idea how to run an AC website/forum, and anyone else would be much better at it

10. Cheng is almost incapable of being right about anything, and when he is, he has an ulterior motive

11. Cheng is only doing this for pride/attention, he does not really care at all about the community

12. Cheng and his "lackeys" are not real AC players, they have to play with certain people to be "real" players

13. Cheng is not allowed to comment on the old community as they were not a part of it

14. Cheng is not allowed to make rules for his own site unless he consults certain non-staff members

15. Cheng makes narratives to rally people against non-existent causes

16. Cheng is a robot

17. Cheng tries to save things that have been dead for years

18. Cheng takes the fun out of community involvment

19. Cheng is a foolish martyr

20. Cheng censors players for no reason

21. Cheng is an opponent that cannot be ignored

22. Cheng has a touch of Bigotry

23. Cheng removes contributing members without "reasonable" cause

24. Cheng was a good boy for not deleting a thread

25. Cheng needs to stop Whining

And to think, I helped this guy start and setup this site and worked with him and has been my friend for over 4 years, I guess some people you never really know...

The linear rifle from AC3, but its ACLR iteration (the one that Evangel uses), autocannons, high speed missiles, sniper cannon weapon arms, the minisawa line, and autoguns.

I've always had love for the Strekoza, tank buster and close range pain. It looks so good too.

Probably gonna have to go with vendetta. They're pretty bad compared to the OP arms they were in 1.01 VD, but after its nerf (and subsequent, albeit slight buff) they're pretty formidable if you get the timing down. Also, fairly impressive if you get good at them...of course, there are people *cough* who get 1-2 kills with it and think they're 1337 tr1ksh0t MLG's.

I'll give you top 3, in order:

Posted Image

This little guy brought me so much fun in AC2. After using it, every successive mini sawa seemed to be a letdown.The XC/01 was a 65-shot sawa at half the weight and power, but with no compromises or weaknesses. It was a reliable, balanced weapon that didn't make you feel like a cheater like the Karasawa Mk.2 did, yet gave you the same play style. Pretty much all of the weapons added in Another Age were badass, though.

In a similar vein: Posted Image The uniqueness of a high-stun rifle with decent damage and reliable ammo stores makes me feel like this is closer to the spiritual successor of the XC/01, even though it isn't EN. The mini-sawa in LR era just wasn't capable. Same goes for Python, which I would have loved if it didn't suck so much.

Lastly, Posted Image The triple-shot laser cannons from AC4. They were hard-as-shit to use (and generally inferior to the larger single shot cannons) but a few direct hits could take out an AC within a few seconds. They were great in multi-player battles where you could essentially use them as a laser shotgun that took 1/3 of an enemy's health away per hit, or 1/2 if they were lightweight. The problem was EN drain, but I've always been good an EN management, and can usually whip off rounds without running out of EN. Though, at times, a single shot from the 6 barrels would wipe out 3/4th of my EN.

Ahh the wave blades were totally kewl, the graphics alone caused me to equip them many times.

My formal favorite blade list

Fujin
Raijin
Moonlight

Armored Core meets Bushido 8-)

The weapon's fire /and usage in AC 2, 3, Silent Line, Raven, Nine Breaker had much more vibrant color, Blue's Yellows, Flame Throwers, Reds, I think a little more attention was
spent on animation for the weapons fire/use mode than in later versions of AC.

From could bring back some of the weapon fireworks and color

Infinite diversity in Infinite combinations, the emperor's business enterprises,  his wall building and book burning

are opposite terms in an equation.  I am reason. It's the single emotion you permitted me, 

Everything is reasonable but my mind was not designed for mindless labor.

God, I miss proper Bazookas.

I wish they had a non-ready position Cannon weapon in ACV, something with 3000 KE damage, 150 lock time, 30-40 ammo, and 100 reload time. Nerf it with a low muzzle velocity and it would be perfect.

As do I. In a similar vein, some of my favorite weapons are also something I wish would return: actual proper Plasma Rifles.
