God, I miss proper Bazookas.


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

My old K99 (godlike aesthetic design) and XCG/20E. How I miss you fine bitches and your FABULOUS pink death beams...


This would be pretty damn sweet to see make a return to AC.

My favourite three weapons! Because everyone obviously cares so much.

Note that I haven't played the older generation games, and if I had, my answers might be different.

The 04-MARVE. Eats lights and mids for breakfast; excellent round velocity, damage and fire rate, and accuracy that's nothing to sneeze at either. The amount of damage this thing does in CQC can be utterly terrifying - in my older days online, I remember watching my AP drop by half in the space of a few moments without even noticing, since I thought I was just being DR'd. While hampered by low ammo capacity, this is my go-to weapon on any build with a free arm weapon slot.

The wing lasers, quite possibly the most underrated weapon in the game. A full salvo can take around 18,000 AP from something with low EN defence, and even something with high EN defence will lose around 10,000. While they're heavy as all hell and bar you from using shoulder weapons, these are probably my single favourite weapon in the entire series. Much better round velocity than the hi-laser cannons, and in my experience, hits much more reliably. But above all, the key reason why I love these things so much is just how utterly badass they look. I'm a big aestheticist, and these are, in my opinion, the best-looking weapons in the game.

The Canopus! Or Karasawa, if you're old-school (or new-school, since they renamed it as such in V and VD). A very solid all-around weapon. Good damage, reliable hitting power, competent velocity, and substantially lighter than the Becrux (and more reliable to hit, in my experience). A very solid mid-range weapon under all circumstances; also, since I largely play PvE, it has enough damage to take out your standard Normal and MT in one or two hits, which can save a lot of time.

As I have been playing ACVD, I have noticed a downfall in UWs.  They don't allow you to recharge for a while and makes you a sitting duck.  I know I said before mine would be the linear cannon from AC3 but I also have a new favorite.  Mine would be the Physical Blade arms from ACVD.  They are able to do 3 hit combos and do massive damage if used right.  Gotta love them.  I use them on my Guillotine.

Linear guns and cannons from older gems, and Sniper Cannons from newer gens.

Just feel like repeating myself :P

Defeat is just temporary. I will return, and I will beat you eventually!

Pursuit Pods, those did stand out the most for me. Though I wish I could launch all the pods simultaneously. Also flamethrowers.

Kiku and the other, bigger one (unless Kiku was the big one). Also Canopus. Maybe the Karasawa from ACV... And the Eltain. Ogoto and Sirius too, and the BigSoux.

 

Too many to count on my hands, really.

Grind Blade.

 

The very definition of unwieldy and absolutely useless in potentially every conceivable scenario and I just love it! It's the sort of thing you would see the protagonist using in a mecha anime. If it didn't wasn't so weighty, and didn't occupy both shoulder slots I would carry it around everywhere.

From the older games, the Karasawa, Moonlight, Grenade Cannon, and the chainguns, as well as most of the weapon arms.

 

From the ACFA, the Motorcobra, Spread Bazooka, most of the missiles, Parry blades, Eltanin, Three barrel rocket launcher (on reg 1.4), all of the weapon arms, Interior Union High Lasers, Lazer Bazooka, 051 ANNR, and so on.

 

In ACVD, usually dual rifles and stealth missiles, or the high power laser weapons. Oh, and the 5 shot burst sniper cannon. Because lols.

They work well enough. Although I haven't play in about a month or so.

I've always liked the Moonlight, even though I almost never equip it's heavier incarnations.

 

My favorite combo is Elf3 followed by Urchin (ACLR).  That cool AC of yours isn't so cool anymore.

 

I guess my favorite weapons depend on which Armored Core you're talking about, and my favorite game is a tie between ACLR and AC4a. Unfortunately, I haven't had a copy of AC4a in years.

It was nice to see explosive weapons gain an area of effect in AC4 and AC4a. I still love my blades, though.
