Worst weapon for your most favourite perk?
For me since I mostly use level 6 Support it would have to be the Vlad 9000 and Combat Shotgun.

and since I also use level 5 Demo it is a ti for the L.A.W and M79.

The combat shotgun is an embarrassment. I've got a screenshot of myself using it, and it's embarrassing. The Vlad is comparable to the Shotgun in ArmA 2 in that it's usable, but good luck ever finding more than one situation to use it in.

Commando is my favorite perk but I don't really hate any of the weapons. Even the Bullpup is fun to use from time to time. Probably the SCAR would be my least favorite though.

Oh and Combat Shotgun FTW!!! I will not let it go unloved!

As Zerk it would have to be the chainsaw. Why is it even in the game? Can't run with it, can't jump with it, I've literally never bought one. The only time I've ever used them was for the initial wave back when you would spawn with one.

Nothing i hate with passion really, kinda like using all available, depending on the team though ahaha.

But if i have to choose, i pick M7A3 med gun, just because of that weight.

Oh, and chainsaw goes without saying, useless is ok, but i hate it mostly because it is so noisy.

EDIT : oh yes, forgot M4 203, so i was thinking, i can learn the recoil and ammo problem, in time, maybe, i can get used to the hard aiming in time, mediocre bullets spread, ok, maybe i can get used to it. But the gun's price is pushing it over the limit.

Weapons that I think are useless are Mac 10, Combat Shotgun, Chainsaw, M4, Tommygun, Dual Pistols, Scythe and M4 203.
You might as well get the way better Flare Revolvers if you can have the Mac 10
If you can get the Combat Shotgun, what's the matter with the HSG?
Chainsaw for reasons others have stated.
M4 and Tommygun because the Mkb does more damage and has better range and speed so why would you not use that?
Dual Pistols because the whole point of being a Sharpshooter is to aim for the head which you can't when you run around with Dual Pistols blazing.
Scythe again because if you can afford that, why not get the more dependable Fire Axe or a Claymore Sword, even the Dwarfes Axe
M4 203 because the gun has horrible rocoil and not many clips for either the grenade attachment or actual gun which renders it pointless, you might as well buy the M79.

M4 203- overpriced, ineffective

I'm no Commando main, but I like that the Tommy gun is lightweight. Paired with the SCAR, that leaves me 4 blocks to fill with flare revolvers... or the M79.

I will say it again this weapon is awsome if you know how to use it. First, it is meant for killing small specimens. Second, the grenade carbine is for croud control. Third, if your going to involve price then the AA12 and Husk Cannon are far worse for that than the M4 203. Fourth, if you hate the recoil and the small amount of ammo for the main gun then play as demo buy it and then switch to commando, recoil gets decreased and the clip size is larger. (level 2 commando has 38 bullets in the clip with this gun. that is 4 extra bullets for every level after 0. at level 6 it is 54 bullets in each clip, more than enought for short bursts.) and with regards to the grenades they are seperate from the M79 and think of them as extras for when you can't throw long distances.

My favourite class is support so I have to say the vlad- nice idea but poorly balanced and ineffective. I'd like to point out that I have an eternal love for the tommy gun- sounds great, looks great and has a great sight. The M4 203 is a weapon which is flawed, but tbh I'm never brave enough to use it in a pub game, so perhaps you're right. Finally I have a love-hate relationship with the katana- although it can be very effective, the high attack speed makes me a bad zerk because I often just hold down the attack button.

I watch your youtube, you should make a video about why you like the combat shotgun- see if you can convert anyone.
UltimateDoomsday{SP} Mar 23, 2013 @ 9:32am 
YES, finally someone who sees my point of view. And believe me I at first thought it was terrible then I started playing as a demo, then I realized how useful this gun is. with regards to the katana it is one of the three reasons I stay away from using Berzerker, the other two are the scythe and machete.

but overall the most useless weapon in my oppinion would be the L.A.W. like what the hell is a anti-tank rocket launcher going to do against zombies..... it is meant to destroy tanks not small targets. Also, I have used it as a demo and I say they should replace it with an equally powerful weapon that has more shots per clip/drum/single reload.

SCAR, FNFAL are better and cheaper, AA12 rapes everything and husk cannon can stun FP's.

Err, personally i prefer AA12 or Husk Cannon though, playing as Commando still only 38 bullets max. And that calculation is wrong lol, even lv 6 commando only have 37 bullets for AK and 50 bullets for bullpup.

Was trying M4 203 in hard bio lab and i dont really like it. But again, i dont like playing with anything that produce smoke now. Just personal preference.

Never liked the Combat Shotgun and the Nailgun for Support Specialist, useless and expensive. And the Chainsaw sucks as well, back then I would just sell it immediately when zerkers spawned with one. And the M4 203 like everybody said, is useless and expensive, and the grenades do less damage than the other grenade launchers which is a turn off.

The Mac 10 is my second favourite Firebug weapon, behind the Flamethower. I don't know why people think the spike damage of the Flare's make them better, when you could just use the Mac 10, hit something at range and let it burn out. The Mac 10 is one of the better guns in the game imo, both on and off perk.

For me, I would probably pick the trenchgun for firebug, becuase I can't crowd control with it ('cause I suck :P), the M4-203 as demo (for obvious reasons), Dual 9mm for sharp, M7 for Medic (seriously, worst medic gun ever), M4 for commando (never got used to the sights), Scythe for Zerk, and I would probably choose the AA-12 for Support (turned off it after my first suicidal game as a support).

I also don't get the hate for the Vlad. That thing is awesome at killing trash, and sirens and husks (even scrakes if you have a melee weapon). Just aim at the siren and husk's feet, and it will kill them in one shot, aim at the ground in the centre of a horde, and watch them fall. I love that gun :P
