    This topic came up in my head recently after unlocking a few of the higher up weapons that aren't too difficult to get, along with some from the shop. I find that once you get through the first level or so of one of the basic weapons, they get just plain amazing. So i want to know, what's you guys' favorite weapon(s) in ShellShock Live?

    My personal favorites so far:
    1. Grand Finale - Okay, so when i unlocked this, i was a little skeptical on it's power as it didn't look like that much more than normal fireworks, but after the first time i used it, i just fell in love with it. This weapon is so powerful that if you're lucky with how they shoot out, you can change the tide of the game in a heartbeat. You can easily do over 100 damage with a single shot, every time i use it i can't help but hum "Brace yourselves for the Grand Finale!" from the song Grand Finale by Madeon, it's just so awesome.

    2. Shadow - So, this one i don't like as much as Grand Finale, but i like it for it's upgrades. Once you get this thing upgraded, it's a monster of a weapon, even normally it's fairly powerful. As much as i'd love to say more about it though, i really can't as i haven't gotten many chances to use it unfortunately due to not being able to get it from loot drops or starter weapons.

    3. Ghost Bomb - Ghost Bomb, where to begin...I suppose the best way to begin is talking about how it's a massive damage weapon that doesn't damage terrain. This makes it perfect if you want to make sure after you've hit, you can follow up with another direct shot. If you use this weapon correctly, you can easily take 30 damage off an entire team if they're close enough together. While not necessarily a great weapon for hitting a single target, it's amazing for crowds, plus who doesn't love the look of a gigantic explosion that doesn't damage the terrain?

    4. Tangent Fire - Alright, a store weapon, costs you a good 250 gears so it has to be great right? well not necessarily. While i will admit it's a good weapon if you get a direct shot with it, it's not the best when you first get it. To start with, even with a direct shot without 2x damage, it does around 30 - 50 damage, each of the little pellets doing about 20 damage each and they're not guaranteed to even hit anyone. This makes Tangent Fire a bit of a flop for a Store weapon in my opinion, it honestly is not worth the 250 gears.

    5. Saw/Bounder - These are a little cheap to love right? no matter what, it's almost always a guaranteed hit. Well, the reason i love these, is because sure, they're easy to use and a sort of cheap weapon since you don't need to aim much with them, but i love them for a different reason. I love these weapons because they make it where you can easily check where your shot would land, and alter it next round to line up a direct shot, which if used right, can be absolutely devastating.

    1. Master Beam - I mean, it goes through everything and it's width is kind of ridiculous. Even if people aren't lined up perfectly, it still can do massive damage.
    2. Baffler - It's not that great, but its funny when someone gets hit by a 10 dmg shot only to get bombarded with explosions shortly afterwords.
    3. FireStorm - This weapon may not be too good with only one person, but if there are 2 or more people in an area and you hit them with this... game over.
    4. Scavengers - The upgrade for Travelers, which is also a great weapon. This weapon seems to have been nerfed, though it still has a lot of damage potential.
    5. River - Why do I put this in my top 5? Well, because the Stream "line" of weapons is unlocked early on, and is still really good. If you aim this weapon right, you can have all the shots land in one spot, doing tons of damage to the enemy -- provided the enemy isn't right next to you (this weapon does more damage over range).

    Boomerang, just cause there's only a few others that actually like it, and whenever I hit everyone is just like, 'rly'. xD
    Super Ball cause banter,
    Excavation because it's just funny seeing 12 (I think) mini diggers coming out of the barrel. :p

    Here are 10 of my favorite weapons.

    Note: I play mostly on SSL2, so most of these weapons will be from there.

    1. AC-130 - Because it's basically Air Strike on steroids.

    2. Kamikaze - Brutal but awesome.

    3. Black Hole - Still good, but wish it actually sucked in stuff.

    4. Lights Out - Just gotta love the people's reaction to the screen going dark.

    5. Jackpot - A hit and miss weapon (not literally), meaning you don't know how much you'll do.

    6. Artillery - AC-130 on steroids this time.

    7. Fat Stacks - It's just so cool, nuff said.

    8. Saw Blade - Gotta love that grinding sound effect when it hits a player.

    9. Needler - One of the few weapons that can do truckloads of damage in one shot. And if you get crits and 2x dmg, then it becomes an absolute monster.

    10. Jammer - Death by music, nuff said.

    1. Lottery - It's like a sniper, only better in every single way. It deals more damage and can be used close range as well. The size of shot means its easy to hit.
    2. Division - Looks cool, hits for a decent amount of damage to 1 tank and is amazing against bunched up tanks. The AoE is downright abusive extending beyond the flashing white column
    3. Meganuke - The destroyer of terrain and all tanks which happen to be in the general area
    4. Master beam - It looks super cool and sometimes I'm too lazy to aim all the way across the map :p
    5. Superball - Just for the lolz
