What's your favorite weapon/skill?
Hey guys, I dont know if this discussion was ever created (since I just got the game a few days ago) and I want to know what everyones opinion is. My favorite weapon so far is the musket. I'm only lvl 2 so I havent gone far in the game. I like how you can shoot more then one target and I myself like range weapons more then mellee. Also, for skills I like the squirt call. It's really nice and the squirt really helps. So now I would like to know your opinion.

The pistols and the pike plus the slingers rapid fire thingy (cant remember skill name). I like the pistols more than theyre actually useful mind u. Reckon theres better ranged weapons out there... I just always want to be a cowboy

Hammer and shotgun. Kills most anything.

Machetes and the Calamity Cannon. Would you want to fight a guy with a foot and a half long blade and a nuclear/quantum cannon over his shoulder?

I always liked the Machete or Spear for my 'main' weapon, with pistols for my ranged. For my skill? Honestly, I pretty much never used them, didn't seem to ever have a need for it.

Just cleared Stranger's dream on 10 idols with mortar and pike. When playing on hard mode, the crit that comes from pike, combined with its reach and armor pen make it ideal in every dream stage. The mortar (with full uprades) turns into the best weapon in the game when you ar immune to its blast and allow you to take targets out at a huge distance away.

Мой выбор это "Копьё Следопыта" и "Корабельная Мортира". Это оружие подходит лучше всего для уничтожения любого типа противников и выдает наибольший урон.

"Копьё Следопыта" - С правильной прокачкой и нужными напитками, это оружие будет не раз вас удивлять. У копья очень высокая скорость атаки и высокий шанс нанесения критического урона. Именно критический урон поможет вам обойти большинство идолов и уничтожить противника.
У копья есть 2 стороны прокачки. (Правая - ближний бой. Левая - Метание копья.)
Лучше выбрать Правую сторону прокачки, она даст вам отличный урон и вы легко одолеете легких и средних противников.
Отличный навык левой стороны - Пробивание брони. Даст нам возможность не обходить в спину бронированных противников.
Обычный удар - 56.
Критический - 140.

Корабельная Мортира - Снаряды можно метать на различное расстояние, они имеет большую площадь поражения и отличный урон.
Для прокачки использовал первые два пункта левого столбика (радиус взрыва и скорость прицеливания), а остальные правого. Весьма полезным является последний пункт - невосприимчивость к взрывам бомб. Теперь можно обстреливать бомбами врага, находясь к нему вплотную, не боясь, что нас заденет взрывной волной.

Cael Hammer and the Breakers Bow are my favourites.

In New Game+ I ran strictly Mortar, Pike and Bomb Barrage. The mortar offers a staggering amount of damage and AoE for how quick it is, and the Pike offers safety and reliability that you can't find in other melee weapons. Even with all 10 idols active, I was able to roll through the entire game and all four dreams using these weapons fairly effortlessly.

I'm not sure if it's the absolute best combination for Score Attack or NG+ speedruns, but I'm sure it's a contender.

Quite agree with you.
I finish the game mostly with pike. It with knockback plus armor penetration this thing is immensely useful. I like to poke the enemy off the map. It's fun

And when the first time I get mortar I was like, "Holy Mother! This thing is dangerous!" Of course, dangerous for others, not me. The AoE is huge and the damage is over the top also. Enhance the blast radius for more coverage and voila~

I was trying to use War Machete (my fave before I get the pike) and the slingers (Top 3 fave ranged) for the NG+ with all idols activated. It was okay for a while until I hit The Melting Pot. Really have a hard time there to the point I need to turn off the regeneration Idol. I switch back to pike and mortar after that. Let's see how's that do.

I'm very partial to the machete and breaker bow, with grenades or mines as the special skill.

Machete, shotgun, pike and mortar.

Pistols and the pike every time, assuming I'm not trying to just blow through the levels (in which case I'd agree on the mortar/pike/bomb barrage combo)

Hammer and scrap cannon with scrap barrage. Yay for hiding behind my shield then blasting the living 'ell out of any foes

War machete and fang repeater
Brushers pike and mortar with bomb barrage.

I like a pistols and musket combo, since getting close means something might hit me and that would be awful. I usually use Squirt Lure largely for sentimental reasons rather than tactical ones.
Once it's upgraded the musket basically chews through enemies anyway, so it's nice to have something to get in between me and them.
